Good Timing & Thank You

I was going through a bit of a rough patch last week and not feeling very happy. So it was perfect timing when I was cheered up by Asha who gave me the Nice Matters Awards for being a nice blogger. Thank you so much Asha!

I think all of you are nice, but some people did pop into my mind immediately when I thought of passing on this award. I'm always curious about where awards start and I found that Bella Enchanted created the Nice Matters Award. It's such a pretty award, so I wasn't surprised to see that it came from such a pretty blog. I'd like to pass on the award to the following bloggers.

CapCity You always have something nice to say and are very encouraging to all of us bloggers. The blogosphere is better for having you in it!

Lotus Reads You are such a sweetheart and helped me with our secret project for Asha. Thank you!

Amisha Your wonderful crafts are making their way into my home and I'm loving it! I'm so pleased that such a nice person is getting ready to start law school and will bring up the niceness quotient in our profession.

Mizrepresent Your blog is always a positive space and I feel happier after visiting! Like I'm sitting in a nice comfy chair in your living room with some nice treats and good conversation.

Suttonhoo You showed me your city and treated me to brunch and helped make my trip to Chicago even better!

I hope you all like your award! Thank you for being so nice!

And from looking at my sitemeter, I found that I am a finalist for a 2007 Black Weblog Award in the category of Best Food Blog. How cool! I guess the judges are making the rounds to the blogs and the winners will be announced on September 5th. Wish me luck! I'm not sure who nominated me, but I have some theories. Thank you!

*Edit* I just had some coffee, so I guess I'm more alert now. I forgot to add this little bit of fun to the post. I found a rap about baking! I thought it was really cute, so I thought I'd share a little bit here and give you a link to see the rest. From the rappin' baker, here is Rollin' (In the Dough).

YO! I make bread cuz I like to knead
The dough in my hands doesn't make them bleed
I got a bunch of active yeast in the freezer
I got a bin of flour, a real crowd pleaser...

Read the rest of this baking rap on the blog A Year In Bread here. Hilarious!
