Trip to the City

It looks like I have become completely addicted to farming… so much so that I don’t even feel like visiting my blog these days! Sighhhh! You should listen to the kind of phone conversations I have with my sister these days – what crops to plant, how to utilize space more efficiently, what crops give the maximum returns, how to plan your plantations so that you don’t miss harvesting your crops on time! Oh! The entire family has turned into farmers! Even my Dad finds it fun to look after my farm when I have other work to do! He reaps the harvested crops, plows the land, and plants fresh seeds, while I’m busy cooking lunch!

Anyways, it’s high time I posted something here. Besides, I still have those 3 awards from Sandhya to announce. And guess what! In the last few days, I have managed to collect 2 more awards, this time from DazeDiva! So that makes it 5 now! Phewwww!


So let’s start with the “Timeless Friendship Award”. As the name suggests, the Award goes to those of my blog friends with whom I enjoy a special friendship, not confined by the boundaries of time. And I choose to give this Award to Shreesh, Mahesh Nayak, Abhiroop, Shobhit (Ok, he was my batch-mate in school, but, we actually became friends on this blog!), Robin and Douglas.



The “Beautiful Blogger Award” - No! It doesn’t go to all the good looking bloggers in my community! :D It goes to some of the most beautiful blogs I read… content-wise, and not on the basis of the templates that have been used! And I give this Award to ShilpaGarg, HopelessRomantic, LazyPineapple, Phoenix, WhySoSeriousToday, Rane and Corrine.



And now my most favorite of the lot that Sandhya gave me -- the “Humane Award”! The Award defines “Humane” as being characterized by kindness, mercy, or compassion; marked by an emphasis on humanistic values and concerns. But, I’m going to do it in a slightly different way! I am, after all, Kaddu! :D Therefore, I’m giving this Award to all those of my blog friends who seem more like Aliens! :D And the deserving winners of this Award are Blog Gore, Mukund, Roshmi, Iggy, Parv, Spirals, Dave, Prabhjot, Vyazz, Shanu, Websnacker and Lotstodo! Enjoy your moment of Glory, Aliens! :D


Now the Awards from DazeDiva…

The “SWANK Award” obviously goes to Tangerine, Dhiman, PG, AgentGreenGlass, Rads and Coffee Angel.

And the “I Give Good Blog Award” goes to Sandhya, Colors, DreamingEyes, Rashmi, ashkd, Sujata and Garima.
