Commenters Giveaway and . . . an Award!

I want to thank everyone for participating in my giveaway. Thanks to all of you new followers this month! So many great comments this month. I hope you truly enjoyed reading about Abby and her life. I will still be writing from Abby's point of view, but not everyday. She has a few new adventures for you, keep tuned in!!!

Later this afternoon, my "birthday-boy" grandson, Padraic age 7, will come over to pick a winner to my contest. He will draw a name from the "hat." I will post his picture and announce the winners tomorrow, Tuesday.

. . . . in the meantime, I have won an award!!!

MysticWind and Liz's Wares have given me an award! Wow! What an honor! The Sunshine Award is awarded to bloggers whose positivity & creativity inspires others in the blog world. The rules for accepting these award:

1) Put the logo on your blog or within your post.
2) Pass the award onto 12 bloggers.
3) Link the nominees within your post.
4) Let the nominees know they have received this award by commenting on their blog.
5) Share the love and link to the person from whom you received this award.

I agree with Karen of MysticWind, that this award should not be a chore, but an honor; so I too would like this to be optional for the acceptance part. I have chosen 12 blogs that I really enjoy. Hope you do too! Here are my picks:

Marlene's Musings

Laura Trevey


NICO Designs

Sunshine Daydreamz


Country Dreaming

Story Beader

Splendid Little Stars




There are so many really good blogs out there, visit these and in the process, you might find a few that you like too!

Wow, what a happy surprise to have you suggest an award for my blog! Thank you very much for thinking of me! One teeny-tiny thing is that last year I received an award where I was supposed to pass it along to three people, and I still haven't gotten around to doing that yet ... Meanwhile, I am enjoying being a new follower of your blog and look forward to getting to know you better. :-)
