    1. Dear Dumcho,

      I thank you so much for nominating my blog for an award. I must graciously decline, as I don't accept awards, as for myself, having blog readers, followers and kind commenters like yourself is enough of a reward for me, and I am truly grateful for each and every one of you. I hope you understand, and I thank you for your kindness.

  15. Hi, dear Linda! Congratulations on being nominated for a blog award. I appreciated the polite, respectful manner in which you declined. You selected some wonderful videos this day. A brief period of meditation every day is essential to mental and physical well being. The lake in autumn is perfectly serene and I enjoyed the evocative Irish fiddling. My favorite part of this post is the painting of the little girl with her puppy, kitten and doll, reminding us that the innocence of youth must be protected and preserved.

    Thank you very much, dear friend Linda, and have a safe and happy weekend!

  20. We have a warm up that's likely to tickle my desire for spring. Seeing nature with beautiful music is a treat!

  21. I like the quote about showing negative thoughts the door. Definitely something to remember!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Jammies, cookies, and naps sound like a good idea.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oh I love PSP! I'm still in my jammies! I love how the Quebec gags exploit uncomfortable social situations and work them! Too funny, Linda! Mindful Wishes was great. But I'm not so sure about the meditation one ~ I found myself tang notes and writing down "clear sky of our mind." LOL! Have a happy Friday, Linda, and thanks for making mine brighter!

  24. "Never be too busy watching what is ahead of you, for you may miss enjoying the moment of what is now" how very true that is.
    It is always a pleasure visiting you!

    Have a beautiful blessed day.

    Joy!
    Debbie

  30. What a lovely post, the handshaking made me laugh because you know, that has happened to me but not for a very long time. It was embarrassing and then laughed about it. I went to YouTube and saved the meditation video so thank you so much for that. The gentleman has such a soothing voice. Loved the Irish Jig. And of course I love those pretty pictures with the inspirational quotes. Thank you so much Linda, always a pleasure to visit. Wishing you a wonderful weekend :)

  33. Hello sweet Linda, thank you for brightening my day with your lovely comment on today's new vintage recipe post. I couldn't agree more - vintage ads are the bee's knees and then some.

    Thank you as well for another marvelous selection of fun, inspiring, thought provoking shares. The PJ clad pup in particular made me smile. :)

    Have a beautiful weekend,
    ♥ Jessica

  38. Dearest Linda; My husband heard the Irish music and told me the instrument would be violin and Banjo. We had fun to hear the music from a country♫♫♫

  43. Enjoyed the Irish jig. Reminds me a little bit (probably just because of its origin) of the background music to the I Love Lucy episode "Lucy Goes to Scotland." Whenever I think about going back to Scotland or Ireland (where my ancestors are from), I think of poor Lucy McGillicuddy Ricardo. In her dream she finally made it, and the locals were so happy to see her because it was time to feed the dragon that ate a McGillicuddy every 100 years! I just hope there's not a similar one who eats Carsons ;).
