Awards............


I can't believe I got an award!!! I'd like to thank my husband, my mother, my father, my brothers, my kids, my grandkids, my friends, my hairdresser, my agent and anyone else who knows me. Bwaaaahhhhhhh, sniff, sniff, bwaaaahhhhh.



No seriously now, Josh at The Gabbatha Journey has very kindly awarded me a Thinking Blogger Award. Ok, he said it's more because myself and another british blogger have put him on the International map rather than I get him thinking about the universe or anything. Nevertheless, I will display my award with pride.

I now need to bestow this award on other bloggers who make me think rather than just ones I like. Let me think!

Annelisa - Words That Flow
This was one of the first blogs I started to read. She has such wonderful pictures of the countryside around where she lives, she writes poetry and is a budding author - she's just written a novel in a month! She makes me think about nature.

Claire - A Little Piece of Me
Claire makes me think so much it hurts my brain. She helped organise a Easter Egg Hunt to raise money for charity, which had quite a lot of bloggers racking their brains. Now I know you don't like Memes Claire but I wanted you to have this award.

Dave - Energy Healing
Dave makes me think about all things spiritual with his pictures and words.

Yazi - Seed a Brain
Yazi's posts are always thought provoking.

Ron - Foot Notes
I have only very, very recently found Ron's blog. He is very knowledgeable on many things - Reflexology, Aromatherapy, Reiki, etc., his posts are very informative and a joy to read.
Should you choose to participate, please make sure to pass this list of rules to the blogs you are tagging. The participation rules are simple:

If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to five blogs that make you think

Link to the original post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme

Optional: Proudly display the 'Thinking Blogger Award' with a link to the post that you wrote.


My knee
Tuesday 24th April
Giant Steps for me. Yesterday I began walking upstairs one foot in front of the other! I used the bannister and a crutch to help but this means my knee is getting stronger. Also this morning I actually stood up to take my shower. I still have to get in and out of the bath by sitting on the bathboard but this is a big improvement.

Annelisa said...

Well done and big congrats on getting the Thinking Blogger award, Akelemalu! It's well deserved - you have a great variety of posts that certainly make you think (darn it, though, I was about to tag you for this one! Might do it anyway :-) )

Thanks for nominating me, sweetie - I shall be doing a post on it later!

Oh, and even bigger congratulations on the stairs - major achievement! You are very brave, as that's one of the wobbly steps to take, but you took it - hugs!

Aloha!

CG said...

Good Morning Akelamalu-

And MUCH congratulations to YOU!!!!!

Yeeeaaaaaa, yeapeeee, yahoooo!

Very deserving!

It's your kind and loving nature that others FEEL - when they come to visit.

Thank you for sharing that with all of us. It's like getting a Reiki session everytime!

And THANK YOU for your consideration of passing on this blessing to me (and the others).

I would be honored and touched.

And SO freaking HAPPY!!!!!

So when I get home from work this evening, I will do as you asked.

Thank you Akelamalu, thank you from the center of my heart chakra!

Now...how the hell do I get the Thinker Award logo on my blog?
If you can let me know...that would be great. You see....I even make myself THINK!?!?!?!?

Be well,
Ron

What lovely things you say, thank you so much. I'm glad you will accept the award you deserve it.

Akelamalu said...

Ron
You're are really excited - you posted twice!!!! :)

Such lovely words from you - I feel very humbled. It's great that you are accepting the award and passing it on.

I'm no techie but I'll tell you how I put the award button up.

1. Click on the thinking blogger award button on my blog.
2. Save it somewhere on your PC as a picture.
3. Upload it as a picture in your Award post and on your sidebar.

I wasn't sure how to make the button link to my post (which is what you're supposed to do) so I just copied the link for my post and put it in the caption line. If you/ or anyone else knows how to do it properly please let me know.

Good luck. I'll be along later to have a look who you've chosen to pass it on to. :)

GEWELS said...

Oh, and don't you look fabulous in that gown you chose for the awards. Gold lame' is definitely your color.
Hooray, sounds like the knee is improving wonderfully.

Sorry to hear your knee is no better. I have to say it feels better after exercising it, when I just sit it siezes up!
