Thank You [bows] Thank You

I have an award!!

Mah Sweet Blogsistah over at Retarded Rugrat gave me a Blogging Star Award!!! This award originated over at Skittle’s Place.

Dawn honey, you'll always be mah girlie. I love you to bits and people should go over and say hello. They should also congratulate you, cos you have reached a magnificent milestone and I'm so proud of you!!

Now down to business, who will I pass on this honoured award to?

Naomi - of course. Naomi is the much loved Old Old Lady (not so old at heart, really!!) who lives in Beverley Hills and is a constant source of inspiration and strength to all of us with her wise words and her beautiful photographs of her precious home in the The Hills. I adore Naomi, she is so patient with me when I am not feeling so sociable. Now, because Naomi is such a kind caring person, she is excused from singling out one or two people from her blogroll fanclub :-))

Carmi and Morahmommy. Carmi over at Written Inc always stirs deep thought and opinion from us using his keen and original eye to see ordinary life in an extraordinary way. In addition, he is very much a family man and he and his wife MorahMommy share their delightful family life and are so welcoming to visitors to their blogs.

Minerva. Minerva at Womanly Parts is an amazing woman. I am always standing on the sidelines of her ongoing battle with cancer, cheering her on. I cannot imagine what my life would be like with such a Sword of Damocles hanging over my head, but Minerva explains everything so clearly with that personal touch that brings her battle into your head and heart. You can't help but love her, admire her honesty and fight her corner.

Of course, the Blogging Star Award has rules, everything has rules....
The Rules:
* Display the award on your blog along with a link to who gave it to you.

* Mention that it originated at Skittles’ Place so Barb can follow it’s journey.
* Pass it on to any blogger(s) you think should have it.

On another note, just to warm the cockles ready for nanowrimo 2007, I have started serialising my 2005 attempt on the storystore.

I am touched by this incredibly sweet gesture. I don't feel worthy of it, but I know my wife certainly is. I am who I am because of her, so it's fitting.

You are a remarkably generous person, and I am deeply appreciative of this.

Now, to think of ways to pass it on and continue the chain of goodness...

Thank you dear dear CQ...I so deeply appreciate what you wrote about me...Oh My....I hope I can continue to live up to all those many wonderfuyl things, my dear.

Here's my problem. You know how I feel about Awards....I have a really hard time "choosing" who something like this should go to---I do not want to hurt anyone's feelings, you know? Anyway...If you feel I am not living up to the rules of the game...PLEASE, feel free to rescind this and give it to someone else....I will understand completely. And My Dear...I thank you with all my heart for the honor. And by the way, the feeling is mutual....!

Oh...I wanted to say, I notice you are coming up on a YEAR Anniversary of Not Smoking!! I hope you will have a Virtual Party or Something, to celebrate this FANTASTIC Milestone!

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

Well, I thank you, dear CQ...I was still here but had not "refreshed", so I didn't see your update till I went back to my Emails....You are so dear and understanding to excuse me from the rules....Merci, Merci, Merci!

Fizzy said...

Dawn said...

*Blushes* Thanks for your kind words and congratulations hon.

I too think a virtual party is a wonderful idea to celebrate your one year anniversary, and I shall be there with bells and whistles!!

Now, to go visit those you passed the award on to ...

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

Michele sent me over to you today to say "HI" from me and from her, too! Hope you have had a LOVELY Friday, my dear CQ....It is close to 1pm here on the Hill....A BEAUTIFUL day! Sunny, coolish-for here, and clear!!! You would love it, I think!

Last Girl On Earth said...

It's been WAY too long since I've paid you a visit, CQ. Hope you've been well. I agree with ALL of your starred choices. Well done on congrats on a well-deserved award! Michele sent me this time, but hey, I would have gotten around to it eventually myself. (Life has a funny way of taking over sometimes, doesn't it?)

kenju said...

Congratulations on your award, CQ, and may I say that I approve heartily your choices for the award! Michele sent me!

Ghost said...

I kinda sidled over here from Michele's place as well. What a fascinating blog--it's very inviting and I feel quite happy to have tripped across you. Hee, yay for awards! I'm contemplating NaNoWriMo myself, though I keep panicking that my imagination isn't up to the challenge. I shall prove myself wrong, I will, rawr!
