I have been awarded the Encouraging Thunder Award by the wonderful Annika Perry over at Annika Perry’s writing blog. You should really check out her blog where she brings us on a journey as she writes her first novel! She is also a very encouraging and active reader of other blogs. I was very honoured that she thought of me with this award! And as I’m back from a stay at the summer-house I found the time to graciously accept the award.

The rules:

‘Thunder creates a powerful addition to the blog as an awesome blog award. Raymond, founder, was bestowed upon a thunder medallion by the great nature so he can create a powerful spell Encouraging Thunder to grant powerful protection to other bloggers. It’s a special spell that only bloggers who has true purpose in their life can master it.’

‘As other bloggers are granted the power of thunder, he or she has the permission to post the power of thunder on their blogs as well as sharing the award with other bloggers.’

With the Encourage Thunder award you can

  • Post it on your blog
  • Grant other blogs

The dos and dont’s of the award are:

Do not

  • Abuse or misuse the logo
  • Claim that it is your own handmade logo


  • Enjoy the award
  • At least give thanks via comments and likes and or mentioning the blogger who gives the award.

Here are my nominees (please feel free to choose to ignore my nomination):

Kevin Morris

Andrew Petcher

Hector Samson

Marlene Herself



  1. Congratulations and thoroughly deserved. I always enjoy visiting your blog and reading your posts. Thank you so much for your kinds words, means a lot. I think you receive from this ‘blogging experience’ what you are prepared to put into it and I feel privileged meeting so many interesting and varied people from across the world.

  2. Thank you so much for your kindness and thoughtfulness. I’ve been trying to figure out how to put a note on my blog that says it’s an award free blog. I accepted one early on but it was mostly to challenge myself on how to do it. I so enjoy when I get to visit you and hear what’s going on in your world. Mine is a little too full these days. For an old woman with no job, I have so much to do I don’t dare blink. I’m also very behind once again on my reading and posts are starting to come farther apart than before. Summer is hard as there is so much outside work that MUST get done. Congratulations on receiving the award. You write a beautiful blog. Thank you again for thinking of me. I’ll try and catch up with you here this weekend.

    1. Thank you for your well written comment. I understand accepting and I would never want anyone to accept out of duty I just sent it your way because I enjoy your blog and the way your thoughtful comments are encouraging me and other bloggers.. I hope you enjoy some work in the garden and such this weekend!
