An Award, Times Two

Jackie, of Jackie's Secret Garden (shhh, don't tell!), and Daphne, of Daphne's Dandelions, both recently awarded me this blog award- my first (and second, depending upon how you view things).

I am belatedly posting my thanks. I do apologize for that. My mind has been wrapped up in a big writing project lately. In accepting this award I am supposed to:
  1. Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award, and his or her blog link.
  2. Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you’ve newly discovered.
  3. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.
I have had a terrible time trying to decide who to pass this along to. Plus, I'm afraid I haven't been reading as many new blogs recently due to my writing project. So, fifteen new blogs is a bit out of reach for me. Here is my handful of picks, plus my reasons for picking them.

Wade and Jimmy of The Weekender for their inspired recycling, and because they totally crack me up.

J.C. of My Sunny Happy Garden for letting me peek over the shoulder of a gardening contemporary in Malaysia. Plus, I get to giggle over things like learning of their Giant Hypermart stores.

Matron of Down on the Allotment because I love her photos and commentary; but also because she's got the chutzpah to title a post Matron's Tits (it's about birds).

Heather at Idaho Small Goat Garden because she inspires me, and because I love that she put linoleum in her new chicken coop.

Your welcome and congrats on the times two. I couldn't do 15 either. Neither did Jackie. I think 15 is just too much. I should have changed the rules and made it 5. 5 is a reasonable number.

Oh My, What to say, there are so many people to thank... Lets see, there are our parents for bringing us into this world; and then there are the other wonderful bloggers out their who inspire and encourage us each day, and then also... Is that the orchestra I hear, well it must be time to step off stage, so thanks to everyone and happy gardening. LOL.

Thanks Maggie for the award. What a great pleasure for me to receive one.

Like Dapne, I doubt I could pass on the award to 15 bloggers. 5 would be just perfect!

Thanks, once again. Wish you a great day!

Well, congratulations, Miss Fancy Pants! hee hee.

(I'm watching you! ; )
