Here are the bloggers I’m nominating for a Sunshine Award, in no particular order, and all for different reasons:
Ten picks for the Sunshine Award:
Sandi Kahn Shelton: Author, wife, mother and all round ray of sunshine. If that sounds as though she’s too good to be true, she’s not. She’s fun.
Madame Bovary’s Daughter Linda Urbach writes wittily about her creation, throwing in a few trenchant comments on the current social scene for good measure. In franglais, naturellement.
The Perils of Divorced Pauline: No self-pity here. Just great writing, thought-provoking posts and a sense of humor, of course.
Cycling Grandma She really does cycle, among other things
That Artist Woman A Canadian art teacher who’s never at a loss for great craft projects that even I can do. Great for those with children around.
Tricia Tierney:Usually contemplative, sometimes poetic, even. But a sense of humor is always within reach.
SchmeightSchmatchers Ivy Eisenberg chronicles her hilarious, and sometimes frustrating, efforts to follow the Weight Watchers program while eating latkes.
GourGanics Sarah Galluzzo not only makes this fabulous salsa but tells you how to use it a million different ways – Yum!
The Garret A.J. O’Connell keeps us updated about her writing efforts and successes.
Not Quite Old: Nancy makes me laugh. Her wry commentary about her life as an age-resistant woman in Connecticut really resonates with me.
In case any of my readers are writers, I also like my own writing blog: The Write Connexion. Not that I’m giving it an award or anything…..
