Spreading sunshine!


Another post in one day, wow! It's because I got an award from Mimi and I am too excited to share it you, my dear readers.

First, I would like to thank Mimi for this sunshine award. I am happy that something on my blog spreads a bit of sunshine to those who read it. So okey, I'm supposed to pass it on to my twelve favorite bloggers, so here they are:

Sid - my oracle & guide to all things science and beyond.

Mimi – she’s a wonderful mom and has lovely ideas of what to do with kids!

Tracey - because I laugh, cry & learn all from one blog.

Randy – because he and Mike are cool and how I wish they were my neighbor.

Jenni – i love all of her photos and ideas and she’s a constant source of inspiration

Amy – because she has a lovely family and this makes me want to have more babies!

Penny – she makes me want to pack up and move.

Joey – because she is a stunning writer, a great friend and an exceptional soul.

Ray – because I can compel him to comment or do I need to say more?

Bren – a stunning photographer and her garden is just bursting with life!

Arun – because he writes beautifully and inspires.

Boysie – where do I start, one day I just found myself writing a blog because of him.

Oh there’s more than 12 bloggers I want to give this to, but you know who you are...so just grab the gerber daisy and paste it right on your beautiful blogs!

This is also to express my appreciation to those of you who visit here every day and make me feel like I'm connecting with real people and not just figments of my imagination. I especially thank those who left comments, because it's way more fun to have a conversation with you guys than to talk to myself. (Not that I would mind talking to myself if that was all that was available to me. But most of the time, other people are necessary. So...thanks for being my "other people."

And thanks for allowing me to be your other people, too! I can't tell you how much I enjoy visiting your blogs and getting a little glimpse into your thoughts and lives. What a remarkable bunch of men and women I've met in this bloggy journey. You truly inspire me!

So pick up that award and have some fun with it! And if you are a lurker, say hello.
That would make my day!

Ray you can always plead the 5th.

A blond friend of mine recently joked to me that the blond version of the 5th.

Is " Right, I'm not permitted to say anything unless it helps you catch me right? "
