Awww, Thanks

You know, you really get to know people in this wonderful blogging community. I meet new people every day and am in awe of their talent to make me smile, think, and remember. For other bloggers to take the time to think I am worthy of another look see, is a huge compliment. The only problem is that I really suck with reciprocation. But, I try. Thanks, guys, for giving me these awards!

The Very Inspirational Blog Award

 Given by Susan at Susan Writes Precise

This is so nice. This is a great compliment, especially coming from my new blogging friend, Susan, who is a wonderful writer. Thank you so much, Susan!


Imagine my surprise when I checked my email this morning and found that I won The Prestigious 7X7 Link Award. I didn’t know what it was, but I was excited, as the last thing I won was a jar of jelly. And it was strawberry, so that pretty much sucked. Cristy Carrington Lewis, aka Paltry Meanderings of a Taller Than Average Woman, gave me the award. A recent post of Cristy’s was recently Freshly Pressed, which was exciting. I sort of feel that I know greatness, as I was the first one to post a comment when she first wrote the piece, before it was Freshly Pressed. She is a wonderful writer. I think I should have her write on my book jacket of my future Jumping in Mud Puddles book.

“Looking to reminisce about someone else’s childhood because yours sucked? Join Vickie as she explores, with plentiful humor and jocularity, her idyllic past as a fascinating, but domineering, color-inside-the-lines kind girl who hated her remedial reading group, probably has mercury poisoning from regular exposure to Mercurochrome, and was secretly-tranquilized by her mother – daily – because she was hyperactive. I thank God my mom didn’t know her mom. If she’d known she could drug me legally, I’d have slept my way through elementary school. Try not to pee your pants when you read this because, if you’re like me, your mom never remembered to send you to school with an extra pair of undies either.”

I found out that I have been nominated not once, but twice, for the coveted Stylish Blogger Award.

When I started blogging, I didn’t really know what I was doing. I still don’t.  But, along the way, I met other bloggers who I now consider friends. Sure, we don’t know each other, not really, but I know that I really enjoy reading their blogs.  I’m quite a procrastinator, so chances are that I  probably will never get around to following the rules of the award like I am supposed to, but know that I cherish the thought that these women, who both could outwrite me in a blogging duel HANDS DOWN, thought of me to nominate  for this award.  I am soo glad that I have met you guys. Thank you.

Working Tech Mom  at , is such a great writer. She is such an optimist. She is classy and her blog is informative, fresh and she takes great pictures. I enjoy visiting her whenever I get the chance. Go visit her blog right now. :)

Wendy, who is also WriterWoman61 at , is a wonderful blogger whose grammar and correct sentence structure :)  puts me to shame. Her blogs are so well written. She wrote a piece on the Bay of Fundy, which is sooo good that I am thinking of taking a trip up there and camping out on her porch. :)

Thank you so very much. Some of your blogging friends have visited my blog as a result of your kind gestures, and in turn, I just be making some new blogging friends. And if they are anything like you guys, I am a happy camper.

I received this award from Mr. Tinney, one of my new blogging neighbors. The great thing about awards is how you get to visit the other nominee’s blogs, etc. etc., and the next thing ya know, you aren’t washing the dishes or vaccuuming

anymore, because you can’t step away from their recent blog posts. I love this place. 🙂
