Award Ceremonies:

Jules at Trying to get over the Rainbow gave me this wonderful blog award back in January just before my blog book tour. Because I was booked solid, I am just now posting it. So here it is, the making smiles on faces award. I'm not sure what the requirements are other than thanking, Jules, which I did.

Tony Benson at Fireside Park, The Celery Tree and JEFritz at Still Writing have given me the Stylish blogger Award back in January during my blog book tour.. And, I think during the craziness of my blog book tour that someone else gave me this award too, but I can't think who it was. So please leave me a comment and I'll be sure to thank you tomorrow. I was swamped so I couldn't thank them properly at the time. This award has morphed as so many do from sharing seven things about yourself and passing it on to 10 new blogging friends to passing it on to 15. If you multiply that it equals 45...well...I won't do quite that many.

And now, L'Aussie gave me this award last week...awesome is a cool word to describe it don't you think? And L'Aussie is an awesome friend! I am to pass it onto other bloggers who I think are fantastic and to answer a 10 question survey.

Thank you L'Aussie.

Michael at In time... gave me this little kitten award and made me smile. He didn't list anything to go with it, so I will list smiles as a must, whenever you think of kittens and, Michael...way to go.

To accept all these awards I have to:

1. Thank and link back to the person who nominated me for the award
2. For the Stylish blogger award I have to share seven things about myself.
3. For the Life Is Good Award I have to answer a 10 question survey.
4. And for all the awards, I have to pass them I will just pass them to my new blogger friends who have started following me recently.
5. Contact your blog friends and let them know they have been awarded.

Well...this is turning into an awesome post and a long one. So, I am listing all the recipients below and letting you pick which award you want. You may have one or's up to you. And just in case someone is here who'd love an award, go ahead, grab one.
