You Make My Day & Mwah Awards

This is long-overdue, but I want to send out a big thank you to Heather, Teddy and Stephanie for honoring me with the You Make My Day award. I also received a big Mwah from Stephanie! Thank you all for the kind words and encouragement. I love blogging, but I especially enjoy the friendships that have grown as a result of this hobby.

Now to pass it on. I always struggle with award lists, as there are so many great bloggers I visit several times a week, if not every day. As I mentioned here, I worry that someone, somewhere will get their feelings hurt if they're not on my list (or any list, for that matter!). You all make my day, whether it be an inspiring post about family or pets, a thought-provoking book review, a tantalizing recipe, or a breath-taking photograph from your place in this world. My life is richer since I met all of you.

Here are 10 blogs that make me laugh, smile, sigh and think:

Patricia Wood (author of Lottery)
Bellezza of Dolce Bellezza
Nan at Letters from a Hill Farm
Kay at My Random Acts of Reading
Nancy at Bookfoolery and Babble
Nat at In Spring It Is the Dawn
Booklogged at A Reader's Journal
SuziQOregon at Blogging My Books
Andi at Tripping Toward Lucidity
Heather at A High and Hidden Place
Stephanie at The Written Word

Oops, that's 11. See, I told you this wasn't easy! And, yes, those last two bloggers were responsible for giving me this award,
but I couldn't make this list without including them.

Several of you have already received this award, so no need to pass it on again. And, I certainly understand if the others on the list would rather not take a turn at this. I know I vacillated for weeks!


  1. Awww, thank you muchly, Les! You're so sweet, and your blog makes every day a better day!

  3. Aww, thank you Les! I always struggle with award lists too and I cheated and didn't pass this one but yours would certainly have been on my list if I had. :)

    Thanks again. And you are right, it sure is hard to pick just ten!

  5. Awww - thank you! the feeling is definitely mutual!!!

  6. Les, thanks for the award. I'm glad just to be included in your 'read daily/read weekly' list!
    Your friendship is way important to me.

  7. great reviews love this blog

  8. Why, thank you, Les! And, right back at ya! I always have a terrible time passing those things on, myself. I just removed all the little award icons crowding my sidebar, but only because it's getting all springy and I need the space for photos. Drop by to see my blooming and flying things, when you have a minute! :)

    Also, will you please tell Rod I haven't dropped off the face of the earth? Spring keeps drawing me outdoors. I'm having trouble sitting at the computer for long, so I think I'll plan to just read his work between chores, this weekend.

  9. Thank-you, Les. You're blog is definitely in my top ten list. I look forward to my visits here.
