I’m not really ungrateful, not at all. Time gets away from me. Plus I always procrastinate with the things that compliment me. I know, such an endearing quality – and so healthy.
BUT – I am organized. I have every award I’ve received and I want to say a proper thank you and I want to pass them on.
I pay no mind to award protocol. I acknowledge the creator of the award if I know who they are. I thank the person who gave it to me. And I pass it on to ONE person.
My ungratefulness goes back to early September! AKELAMALU gave me the ARTE ‘Y PICO award.
Funny thing. She received another one today!! Not surprising. This award recognizes quality of content and Akelamalu writes wonderful stories and posts delightful doodles. I pass the Arte‘y Pico on to BOND. One of my newest friends. He truly should be a music professor, a guru of the arts. He does his homework; he presents eclectic choices in music plus all the other things his “couch” offers up.
I received the ‘I Love Your Blog’ award from 3 of my buddies.
IVANHOE – who is absolutely one of the kindest people on the planet. She showers me with stuff.
RAMBLING – Michelle is a smart animal lover and dedicated friend of Mother Nature. I love how much I learn from her and I love how inspiring her photographs are.
SPARKLING – talk about joining someone on their journey!! I became a regular reader of Sparkling just when she was thinking of not blogging anymore. I’m sure it was something I said. Instead she chose to share with us a personal journey that often leaves me with wonderful things to consider.
THANK YOU - OH TRINITY OF LOVELY LADIES!!
I am passing the ‘I Love Your Blog’ on to:
FERMICAT – I’ve enjoyed her blog for a while now but recently I realized just how much I respect how she cares for her cats and how she shares her daily life with such ease. Go over and see some great cat photos and tell Silvio to get well quick.
MARY/THE TEACH – and her damn red! I enjoyed hating red. Now I appreciate it. Mary’s Ruby Tuesday project has made my photography better and I truly appreciate that.
HILARY – I think the term ‘feast for the eyes’ was coined with Hilary's blog in mind. Her posts are so lovely; her photographs make your eyes applaud. And she posts just enough of Benny the Wonder Dog to make you want more. She is as gentle and lovely as the nature around her.
As I said above Ivanhoe showers me with appreciation!! She also gave me the Light Across The Web award.
CASDOCK and MRS. C (and her children who blog) – All of you who know Casdock have felt the light she is and shares. I met Mrs. C because of Casdock and I think ‘Lights Across the Web’ suits the situation. Mrs. C and me – have, at face value, absolutely nothing in common. We disagree on just about every front – politics, lifestyles, religion. BUT beyond face value Mrs. C has a huge heart, a silly sense of humor and a deep and abiding love and respect for her children and all other children. So Mrs. C and me – we work it out and I like to think we’re friends.
PAGAN decided she wanted to strengthen the bonds of us ‘left of center’ bloggers so she passed on the Brilliante award to many of us.
Last but not least REB gave me this Sweet award. See I am sweet – not an ungrateful, shallow, heathen, leftie bitch who almost caused Sparkling to abandon the blog-o-sphere. I AM SWEET! Make sure to stop and see how Pretty in Pink Reb is and enjoy her great blog.
If you skim posts (Hi Jay) that sentence above will seem so f’d up.
I give my Sweet award to BEAR. She makes me smile! She is very creative and a kind kind person.
And there ya have it!
