It's Like My Birthday Without Getting Any Older

Now lookie here at what came my way yesterday.

First, from Laura aka Peach from Silence is Broken,  I received this:

I love Laura.  Most of you know her (that's how I met most of you!), but if you don't, you need to meet her.  Want to learn the definition of survivor?  Meet Laura.  Want to learn the definition of generosity?  Meet Laura.  Want to know the person I want as a neighbor?  Meet Laura.  Need a laugh, encouragement, honesty or acceptance?  You know what you should do.  Meet Laura.

And this beauty is from Jeannelle from Midlife by Farmlight:
Of course, I think Jeannelle is a beauty, too.  She lives on an Iowa dairy farm and is sooooo smart and articulate.  She has a marvelous way of looking at the ordinary in extraordinary fashion.  She finds artistry and wonder in all aspects of her day.  And if that isn't enough, her farm posts are fun.  Her cows make my sons laugh!

Now my turn...

For Jeannelle, Pam from Mappersnapper (my first blogging friend and advisor and who may be coming to see me in person!!!), and Ann from From the Front Porch (who doesn't do these kinds of things, but whose blog is beautiful and does a great job of balancing thought-provoking with sweet), I present:
For Laura, and Karen from The Rocking Pony (who writes about MY  her family in such an honest and sweet way,) and another Pam from Life on a Southern Farm, (whose philosophy of debt-free living impacts my thinking more than she knows), I present:
Isn't blogging fun ??

Cool awards and well deserved!

Well.....shucks, Caution.....thank you very much! I'm honored to be included in the company of your friends Pam and Ann.


For Ann.....evidently you don't take comments on your lovely blog......hopefully you will see this one sometime:

That you're in NW Montana interests me immensely as I have a brother and sister-in-law in Polson. We travel rarely, but were privileged to visit them 19 years ago, touring the Flathead Lake area and Glacier Park. We have wonderful memories of the great beauty there!!


Thanks again, Caution!! Your unique writing style is a joy and an inspiration! You're an encourager, too, and that's a special gift!

Oh, just noticed, too, your new profile photo....at first glance I thought it was handprints on glass, but after enlarging, it appears to be sandy prints on the car roof. Looks like summer fun!

Thank-you so much, Caution. I needed an award today. I am still picking away (not so much grinning left though) in the garden and canning soup today.
I still think cake and ice cream should be served with the awards..lol
Have a great day!

Wiping a tear... your first blogging friend is weeping...

Ok... I'm not. But I am rather dramatic, and COULD be, honest, I COULD be!

Thanks for the thinking award. I gotta tell you, of all the awards YOU could give me, coming from you, this one feels nice. I will write about it!
Check back soon on my blog, I will have something to say for sure about it!
Oh... and the plans may be suspended till fall because my husband has two projects starting now. Oh the joy. (sense my sarcasm?) BUT, my cousin is leaving for Iraq soon and we want to get to see him before he goes, so we will be there soon enough. I was gonna email this, but you got it in comment form instead. Will write more later. Thank you again for your award.
