Award Time

Thank you dear Miss Meggie for giving me the Excellent Blog Award. Now it's time for me to "pay it forward."

The rules are:

By accepting this Excellent Blog Award, you agree to award it to 10 more people whose blogs you find Excellent Award worthy.

You can give it to as many people as you want but please award at least 10. You deserve this!

Feel free to recognize blogs that have already received this award.

Mary at Mary's View - she makes me smile even when I'm having a crappy day

Barefoot Gardener - she proves that humor can make even her most frustrating daily events bearable (P.S. there's a house for sale in our neighborhood!!)

Larry - for sharing his excellent weekly birding adventures

Robin (Bumblebee) - for sharing gardening advice and pics of all the great flower shows that I'll probably never make it to

Ruth (Body, Soul and Spirit) - for great posts that always give me something to think about (and she shared great recipes too!

Tom (Mon@rch)- because I learn so much from his posts

Jayne (Journey Through Grace) - the best bird photos -- and mostly all in her own backyard!

Jennifer - whose posts inspire me to look closer at everything I see in the woods

Loribird - the queen of multi-taskers: mom, student, knitter, nature lover, blogger, etc.

Lisa (at Greenbow) - livin' the good life and gardening in Indiana!

Thanks everyone for sharing your great blogs - hope you enjoy sharing this award!

Ruthie, thank you so much! And I'll give an E right back to you!

I was beginning to worry about your time off from blogging. Glad you're back!

Hi Lisa,
You're welcome--you deserve it.

Hi Robin,
You're welcome--and thank you too.
(Lots of stuff going on at work with end-of-quarter overload, plus trying to give extra attention to pets still at home, so haven't felt much like blogging lately. New month & quarter means time to get back into a regular routine again now)

Larry said...

Thank you so much Ruthie! I really appreciate this. It's an honor to be mentioned along with these other great bloggers too!!

Hi Ruth,
You're welcome. I think the awards are almost more fun to give than to receive!

Hi Marsha,
I hope you enjoy reading these other blogs as much as I do.

Hi Mon@rch,
You have definitely earned the Excellence award....and I think everyone who reads your posts each day certainly agree.

Hi Larry,
I like your posts because they inspire and challenge me to go out and find new birds myself. My goal this spring it to find and become more familiar with waterfowl and shorebirds.

Whee! Thanks - and consider the compliment returned. All that multi-tasking took its toll and I'm in recuperation mode now, but I look forward to passing the award along when I blog again :)
