I Was Going to Take the Day Off, But...

...last week I received this adorable Sweet Blog Award from Carol Kilgore at Under the Tiki Hut. Thanks, Carol, I consider it an honor to receive any blogging award, but those with white teddy bears are awesomely special.

The blog carries no special rules, but Carol and the blogger from whom she received the award, VR Barkowski, passed the honor on to five others. I'll do the same.

First on my list is a blog I discovered by taking part in the Arlee Bird A to Z Blog Challenge during the month of April (but more about that on Monday). I've also included three blogs from Northern Colorado friends who share wonderful stories. And finally, I've added a Colorado mystery writer who blogs about food and gardening and home crafting. Some of these blogs feature gorgeous photos you won't want to miss.

I hope you'll visit all these sweet blogs -- they're wonderful.

Glad you didn't take the day off; and congratulations. I'm also happy you posted these links. I love meeting new bloggers. I already know Grammy; she is very sweet.

Jemi Fraser said...

Congrats! Great links - I'll have to find time to visit them this weekend :)

Linda L. Henk said...

Thanks, Pat! And thanks for sharing the other links. Grammy makes me want to go cut my toenails! Enjoy your chocolate.


Congratulations on the well deserved award Mary and also to the other five.

Hope you all have a wonderful week-end.

Oh dear. This post reminds me that someone left a comment on my blog that I had won an award, and I've totally blanked on who or when ... we were with such limited computer access during our move that I know I've "misplaced" far too many things.

Finally checking in after a morning workshop at the NCW studio, learning about screenwriting. Then I was off to hear Wyoming author C. J. Box talk about his Joe Pickett series and sign books. There was a great turnout for that. I had parked a fair distance away, and just happened to walk right by Ben and Jerry's on the way back to my car. Had a small cup with two flavors: Coffee Coffee Buzz Buzz Buzz and Mint Chocolate Chunk. I'm having a totally awesome day off!

Terry, I can sympathize with that. I acknowledged a couple of awards earlier this year but didn't pass them on. Now that I have more blog contacts, I could do that...but first I have to find the details. I sure wish I'd written something down on my calendar.

Hi, Patricia,
Thanks for the Sweet Blog Award. I will find five people to pass it on to, as well. You are a dear sweet person! Thanks for the recognition!

Cricket McRae said...

Patricia, thank you so much for the Sweet Blog Award!

I planned to come see C.J. speak today, too, but something came up, and I couldn't make it. Bummer. I hate it when life interfers with my fun.

Take tomorrow off -- you deserve it after your awesome A-Z challenge posts, even while on vacation!
