I’m feeling very lucky to have such kind and generous people reading my blog. Grackle & Sun has been nominated for a One Lovely Blog Award. I’m excited! Thanks to Steph at Ch’I Journey for nominating me. Steph has a wonderful blog detailing her experiences learning Chi Running. I love learning about this style of running (which I really want to start doing), and I also love reading about her growing enthusiasm and progress. And her post on conquering fear is awesome. Thanks, Steph, for sharing this award with me!
The rules for acceptance for this award are as follows:
1. Thank the blogger that nominated you and link back to their blog. Check!
2. Share 7 possibly unknown things about yourself…
a) I once had a pet duck. His name was Tagalone.
b) I listen to a lot of old school Brazilian music.
c) My favourite colour is brown.
d) I love roller coasters.
e) I’m pretty sure crochet is witchcraft.
f) I think the vast depth of the ocean is terrifying. I love it anyway.
g) I use the British spelling of words like ‘colour’ and ‘favourite’ because of the synaesthesia. The ‘u’ softens the effect of the ‘o’ next to the ‘r’.
3. Nominate blogs that you think are lovely. Here are a few blogs that I read regularly. I hope that you’ll take the time to enjoy them, as well.
