Super-Cute Blog Award and Upcoming Events




Isn't that just cute! 

I have to say a huge thanks to Trisha at Word + Stuff for thinking of me.  You all already know how wonderful I think Trisha's blog is, and if you don't know for yourself, get on over there!  What are you waiting for?!

I love this award! I have never seen it anywhere before, so I'm so excited to add it to my blog awards page.  Copied from Word + Stuff, the award is named 'The thumbs up from Skunk award' since "we all feel like stinky, stinky skunks some days" and there are people who "make us feel (and smell) a lot better".

To pass the award on, I have to name one thing that you love about yourself, then pass on the award to as many bloggers as you want to! How simple is that?

One thing I love about myself is that I still play. I get excited over the smallest things and the world still has some mystery left. People think I'm weird, but I love it about myself.

Bloggers! I hate to do this part because I really do want to give the awards to everyone. I don't want anyone to feel like the kid last picked at P.E. Okay, I'll be brave:

Cindy Keen Reynders - Saucy Lucy Wisdom - supportive of my writing since almost I began
Cassie Mae - Reading, Writing and Lovin' It - so friendly and supportive that I really do think she's one of the friendliest people I've met.
Kelley at Between the Bookends - always leaves lovely comments and makes me feel welcome in this blogging community
David Ludwig - wrote thoughtful comments all through the Nightgale Blog Challenge and found me on twitter.  What a guy!
Leigh Covington - because she asked to interview me, when I'm sure there are a lot more interesting and accomplished people out there to be interviewed!

I know there are others out there, and I truly do appreciate everything anyone does that gives me that little extra boost when I'm feeling all stinky. Even if I didn't pass on the award to you, I do recognize every kindness!

Upcoming Events

I am looking forward to more guest posters in February, and not just from the Life List Club!  At this time I don't have anything set in stone, but don't be surprised if you start seeing some new faces over here!  I'll also be guest posting at different blogs, and I'll let you in on where I go when those occur.  Please come over and say "hi." I get lonely...

My short story, Bear Hug, should be up at Hogglepot starting on February 5th.  Please take a little trip and see what you think!

I am very excited to participate in two blog hops in February.  

February 10th

The I'll Tumble 4 'Ya Blogfest : Click on the link to visit Nicki Elson's blog Not-So-Deep and sign up for this super-fun blogfest.  Then, on the 10th, post a picture or video sharing who was your 80's crush.  If you weren't alive, or too young to crush on anyone, pick out an 80's person who you would've crushed on.  It's going to be a lot of fun hopping around and seeing who everyone picked!



February 14th

The Is It Getting Hot in Here? Valentines Day Blog Hop:  Click on the link to go over to Reading, Writing and Lovin' It to sign up!  On the 14th, we'll all share one of our favorite kissing scenes from a book we've read, from our own WiP, make one up, or write about one of our own memorable kisses. Then we'll all hop around to "feel how sweet, romantic, or downright steamy other characters are getting smooched!"  Lots of people signed up for this one!

Wow - it's sounding kind of busy in my life!  And all this doesn't include actual writing and editing!

Here is a picture of Earnie the Emu.  I'm sticking him on here because I just love him.  The man who took the picture told me he's a very affectionate Emu, so it kind of goes along with the blog hops above.  Have a great weekend!

  8. That's a cute skunk. I enjoyed the point you shared about yourself. I think writers have to believe in play and the mysteries of this world — no matter how small.

    1. I thought it was an adorable award, with a cute premise, too! It's a good point that writers have to be able to have a sense of play, otherwise, it wouldn't be as easy to access the imagination and come up with interesting and fun stories. Maybe "the muse" is a playmate.
