Proximidade...

Over the weekend I was surprised by Andrea with this very special Award...Proximidade. This is a very cool Portuguese Award and it means that this blog invests in and believes that blogging makes us close. Proximidade translated to English means vicinity, or neighbourhood. I am so grateful that in Blogland everyone is next door neighbours. Some of my closest neighbours reside across the country in Australia...and across the world, reaching The Netherlands, Ireland, The United States, Italy, England and Estonia to mention some!!!

The meaning of this Award...This blog invests and believes in Proximity...nearness in Space, Time and Relationships. These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggerss aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes for self-aggrandizament! Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propogated.

I happily pass this Award on to 8 Fellow Bloggers...I stop here...too hard to choose...

I thoroughly enjoy reading all the Blogs on my side bar...so in the Spirit that this Award was given to me I will invite all on my page to receive it...okay then...especially Micki and Simone !!! I have nearly daily contact with both these bloggers...sharing our daily comings and goings...latest projects...latest reading material...home life...I feel that I would be able to sit around the kitchen table with these 2 wonderful gals and share some precious moments with them both!!! And including you as well Andrea...and Thank You for thinking of me!!!

With much love,

You won't believe this - I've been away from commenting for a couple of days but I saw the title of your post, Proximidade, and wondered what that was. And then this morning I wake up and I think to myself, "Isn't it nice that I have this sort of international neightborhood to visit" and then I am off on some visits and read Micki in Irelands post about Proximidade and discover the meaning of the word! So funny! Well deserved awards for you too! Much love,
Catherine

Hello, my name is Dzintra Ingrid ... have been known as Ingrid and since our Sea Change I have started to use Dzintra ... pronounced without the D ... (but still known as Ingrid, I know, it's confusing ...)

Welcome to my world ... a journal of our Sea Change ... Mum to three wonderful children ... bringing up a daughter with a disability and seeing life through her eyes ... being a new Nanna ... photos ... inspiring quotes ... taking on a cookery course ... the odd recipe ... and trying to get some stitching done amongst all this ...
