For The Awesome!

It's a beautiful day!.

It's not too hot.
The sun is shining.
And the sparrows are eating the cat food again.

One week from today, Kiddo will be graduating from 8th grade.
They have a ceremony and everything.

And she's gonna wear a dress!

This is big.
Very big.

So big, that we still have to buy one.
I can not tell you the last time she actually put on something besides shorts or pants.

My baby is getting so big.
Gonna be a high schooler and wearin' a dress.

She calls herself "full of awesomeness" and I may be a bit biased, but I think so too.
Even if she can drive me nuts from time to time.

Now for some other awesome.
I think I should hand out some awards.
They have been hanging around long enough wanting some love .

This award was passed on to me by Sylvia van Bruggen over at Word Doodles. I never thought myself as stylish, but I guess I have my own style. 
Works for me.

I hereby bestow this award to:

Sandra over at Absolutely Narcissism. She is funny and she wears crowns. What's more stylish than crowns?
 Debbie  from McCormick Madness. Check out her blog and see how to style up your own.
Sweet Design from Sweet Design's Tips. She has all kinds of tips for saving money and she does lots of crafts.
Laurie  over at Earth Dragon Healing. She teaches you ways to make the most of your emotional being.

I received this award from Deirdra from A Storybook World. Nice to be thought of as creative.

This award will be passed along to:

Sherilin at laughing my abs off. She has a great way with words and comes up with stuff I'd never think of in a million years.
Tracy from I Spy With My Little Eye All the Colours of the World. She's funny and is a really great photographer.
Jingle - blog name jingle. Good poetry and a good mellow relaxing blog. 
Clipped Wings from Perfection... More or Less. Great stories, poetry, and pictures.

You should go check these blogs out. If I like them, you know they have to be good.


  1. You gave me an award... You are too sweet! That's the first one for the I Spy blog... Thanks darlin!

  2. awwwwww - thank you Ruth! You made my day!

  3. thanks for that, ruth! you're always such a good, faithful reader & commenter, i'm not at all surprised you got 2 great awards!
    wow, big day when the kid heards into high school! eek, i'm so unprepared for that myself.

  4. i said heards rather than heads. i should really proof my comments before posting them.

  5. you are so very sweet,

    Thanks for the award.
    bless you.

  6. You guys are very welcome.

    Sherilin, I figured it was a typo of some sort. At first I thought you meant heads and than I thought maybe herds that you added an A to. You know they are kinda herded into school like cattle.

  7. I love the Creative Blog award. Thank you so much. You're a sweetie. Congratulations on your two awards. You deserve many more :)

  8. You are welcome Yvonne. You deserve it.

  9. Oh, I fondly remember the day I graduated from 8th grade. Cap and gown, pomp and circumstance, a streaker wearing a Richard Nixon mask, old Slovak ladies, and nuns.
    Plus, I got a bike (yes, bikes were invented when I was 14).
    Relish these days. They'll be taking their kids to soccer practice and you'll be eating soft foods before you know it.

  10. Thanks Al. That's a real comforting thought.

  11. Thanks so much for the stylish blog award Ruth! And for the nice way you described my feels good when people let you know they like what you do! I checked out the other award winners and am following some of them too. And congrats on your awards - even though I may not leave a comment I always enjoy your posts.

  12. Laurie, you are very welcome.
    Thank you. I am glad you enjoy them.
