I am a little slow to catch up on my kind mentions and awards, but this one is too cute to pass up.
BEHOLD: The Napping Blogger Award
I was not only nominated for the award by the creator, the awesome Donna B. McNicol (@donnabmcnicol), but also the ever kind Steven P. Watson (@ashviper). Thanks to you both for remembering me!
The rules for the Napping Blogger Award are easy:
- Link back to the one(s) who gave you the award.
- Tell us what you do to take time for YOU! That might be a hobby, a musical break, a favorite movie or show, sitting outside enjoying nature, or even taking a nap!
- Nominate five other bloggers – especially folks you think deserve a break from their routine.
Taking time for me is one of the things with which I struggle. I am so busy promoting contests and the artistic output of myself and others that I have to force myself to slow down. Many of my friends have heard me mumble, “…Sleep when I’m dead.” My bloodshot eyes at that moment may have foretold the zombie apocalypse.
Lately, to relax I have been arranging my new library, filling my desk drawers and dusting bookshelves and categorizing books. It may sound vexing, but it is my happy time.
I also love playing piano barefoot and have newly discovered the meditative joys of potting flowers (ha, please ignore my black thumb).
Now I have to figure out 5 bloggers who need a break from their routine. I know so many deserving bloggers, but here are my five who work harder (or crazier) than most! Give yourself a break and enjoy your new Napping Blogger Award!
3) Jo-Anne Teal
5) Sophie Moss
