A Celebration and An Award
My posts haven't been regular this week because I've been:
a.) Getting the grandkiddos ready for back to school (physicals, hair cuts, shopping)
b.) Working on two deadlines (book review, interview)
c. ) Too darned tired
Now that the grandkiddos are back full time and my deadlines have been met, I am celebrating my sense of relaxation. Let's see. I'm drinking a cup of tea, surfing the web trying to find a special necklace for Cari's 16th birthday next week, thinking about my doctor's appointment, and taking the Scarlett O'Hara approach to where to start with housework. "Tomorrow's another day."
Now for the award. Back on Coast Guard Day (Aug 2), Carol over at Under the Tiki Hut gave me a Circle of Friends award. Thanks, Carol, for the cool award. I've been saving it for a special day to share with five blogger buddies. In exchange for receiving this awesome award, I've been asked to:
Pass the link to five other bloggers.
Post a link from their blog to mine.
Notify them that they have received the award.
So, here are my five selections for The Circle of Friend Award:
Tammi at Message in a Blog
Mary Nida at Life's Beautiful Path
Donna at Mystical Journeys
Sioux at Sioux's Page
Madeline at Shellshank Redemption
Now, I need to notify them that they have received the award and ask them to pass it along.
Hope you all have a great weekend. Stay cool, and take time to write.
