Greetings Blogging Buddies!
My family made it back from a week of skiing in Colorado all in one piece (despite a harrowing drive down the mountain in a pre-dawn snowstorm), the laundry's done, there are groceries in the kitchen, I've even spent a little time with my wip and complicated Tabitha's life a bit more. Now I've finally got some time to rejoin the blogosphere. I'm certain I've missed some great posts, but I can't wait to catch up with everyone!
I had some nice surprises waiting for me when I got home: awards! So my first order of business is to pass these on to some of my newer blogging buddies.
Thank you to Abby Annis for giving me the Silver Lining Award! For this award, all I have to do is pass it on to five bloggers. I'd like to pass this one on to:
1. Nicole at One Significant Moment at a Time.
2. Stephanie at Craziness, College, and a Little Creativity.
3. Anne at Piedmont Writer.
4. Tara at Feel of Something New.
5. Jen at Unedited.
Next, thank you to Nicole Ducleroir at One Significant Moment at a Time for presenting me with the Prolific Blogger Award. Nicole let her recipients choose which award they'd like to receive, and this one stuck out to me. Its inscription, "By definition, a prolific blogger 'is one who is intellectually productive...keeping up an active blog that is filled with enjoyable content,'" is a worthy goal which I am continually striving for.
I'd like to pass this award to:
1. Abby Annis.
3. Christine at Christine's Journey.
4. Myrna at Night Writer.
5. Lola at Sharp Pen/Dull Sword.
And last but not least, Abby Annis tagged me. I need to answer these questions:
I like getting up early and having the house to myself for some quiet writing time.
I like a full pot of hot coffee.
I like a great book.
I like a day when I don't have to go anywhere.
I like warm spring weather.
I like naps.
I like spending time with friends.
I like coconut and seafood - my two favorite foods.
I like jeans that fit just right.
I like my routine.
I like walking my dog through the park.
I like a clean house.
I love watching my children shine.
Today (Sunday) was peaceful and relaxing (so far - it's only 11:30am).
I hate realizing I've hurt someone's feelings.
I hate cleaning bathrooms.
I hate feeling rushed.
I hate when I let my schedule get too busy.
I hate when friends move away.
I hate beets.
I hate too much noise.
I hate missing my morning writing time.
I (secretly) like sitting at my son's soccer practice (as long as I have my laptop.)
I love blogging buddies.
And in return, I'd like to tag:
1. Kelly at Cross Your T's.
I hope you'll check out these blogs and get to know these fantastic bloggers.
Gotta go now - I've got some blogs to read and I can't wait to get to it!
