You Really Really Like Me!

Yesterday was a Red Letter Day.  I won two awards.

Okay, so the first award was from my daughter.  She gave me the following blue ribbon for saving our unimpressed family from a somewhat confused Snake in the House:

The second award was the coveted Versatile Blogger Award.

Bestowed upon 15 bloggers by Miranda Gargasz at http://scatteringmoments.wordpress.com, this award has a slighter longer history than the Life Saver one hurriedly sketched on a piece of notepaper by Dimples.  And, it is accompanied by heavy responsibility.  If you accept this award, you are committed to the following conditions:

1.  Thank the person who shared the award with you by linking back to them in your post.

2.  Pass this award to 15 recently discovered blogs and let them know that you included them in your blog post.

3.  List 7 things about yourself.

So, here we go:

1.  Thanks, Miranda, for the words of encouragement!

2.  Here are my 15 blogs, in no particular order –

3.  Seven things about myself:  I tied for first place in my district-wide Spelling Bee in 5th grade (they finally stopped the Bee because it had gone for hours with no sign of a winner), My favorite childhood books were The Anne of Green Gables series, I like to sing with the Glee app on my iPad, One of the few movies I’ve ever watched over 20 times was Grease 2, If I had to choose between 105 degree temperatures every day of the year or Below Freezing every day of the year, I would definitely choose the 105, I cannot tolerate Intolerance, AND the only thing that I can make in the kitchen that tastes decent is cheesecake.

Alright, so now that I have taken care of all of the lists, I must now go alert all of the winners about their inclusion and homework for the day.

Please contact my agent to arrange interviews and autograph appearances.  He will be happy to fit you in between rope-tugging and ball-fetching appointments.

  1. Thank you so much….that is wonderful or it would be if I knew how to download it to my blog. I am a dunce at ‘computer things’

    Although I am extremely pleased and flattered that you should even consider little ole me… I would much rather have a lick and cuddle with Wonderbutt and Mrs P I B . That would make my day even better.
    How I love dogs!
    But I also love you cos you think that I am worth an award

  3. see I am so chuffed I did it twice ! Sorry

  4. Thanks again! I love your bit about being a spelling bee champ. This is going to be a good exercise for me because I need to fill out my bio/profile pages on Smashwords and Amazon and the seven things should force me to evaluate myself (The biggest reason I’m a writer is because I find everyone and everything vastly more interesting than me). So once again…thanks!

  5. Thank you! It IS a responsibility because now I have to remember how to link (I keep forgetting – I should write it down!) and have time to do the post AND think of seven things about myself (that’s the easy bit!). And I was going to have an early night!!! But thank you very much, I haven’t been here long so I am very flattered 🙂

  6. TheIdiotSpeaketh

    Mmmmmm…did someone say Cheesecake? 🙂 Congrats on your awards! 🙂

  7. congrats

  8. Thanks! I’m delighted. I’ll need a few days to think about this one. I think we both read the same bloggers, so some writers are going to get double awards!

  9. Thanks so much!! And now I have something to blog about tomorrow. Bonus!

  10. Thanks. I’ll get busy on this, but don’t know that it will get done in the next day or 2. I have a busy week coming up!!

    Congrats on your award, I love your blog.

  11. Congrats on the awards! As a fellow southwestern mom, I have to say I’m especially impressed with your life safer award 🙂

  12. Love it! I’m so creative I just copped Sally Field’s speech 😉

  13. Hot damn! Congratulations to you on a very well deserved award. I love your sense of humor…you never fail to bring a smile to my face. And, thank you so much for honoring me with this award. I really appreciate your thoughtfulness. Cheers to you!

    • Thanks! I have been a fan of yours since I first started blogging (o.k. that wasn’t long ago, but that is meant to be a compliment!). I absolutely love the hysterical things your kids say as well as your postscripts to each quote!

  14. Thanks so much! It’s an honor just to be nominated…like we haven’t heard that one before ; ) But really, I’m super excited to be on your list and to check out the other blogs on there. Congrats on your award…it’s much deserved as your posts always make me chuckle. I hope I’m ambitious enough to tackle this mission!

  15. Kay at Blue Speckled Pup

    Thanks for the love, lady! You made my day by including me with all those other fabulous blogs.

    I will be responding in a truncated fashion, since I don’t know enough blogs you haven’t already nominated to send 15 love notes out into the internet.

    Hope your week is going swimmingly.
