An Award from Tessa.

Before I forget to do this, as if I would forget, right, I have to post this very nice award I have gotten from Tessa Edwards and if you click on her name you can read for yourself the reasons why I got it.

The very difficult part is passing this award on to other people, because I do want to limit myself to some extent and not make the list endlessly long. So here I go.

I want to pass on this award to the WiseWebWoman, to Aims, to Crystal Jigsaw, to Grit, to Jo Beaufoix, to Jeannette, to Maggie, to Potty Mum, to Laurie, to John Mora, to Violet Sky and to Cheryl.

There, that was a lot of work, but I think I have chosen well and I hope the recipients are as happy with the award as I was. I think it's a real beauty.

In the meantime, it's well into Sunday morning and I'm still in my pajamas. The dog is very lazily digesting his food on his blanket under the coffee table. I bought him some different dog food and he likes it so much, that he growls extra hard at Toby and Gandhi, who don't dare even come close to his dish. This dog food has chunks of real meat in it and the dog thinks he has died and gone to heaven. At least, that's how I am interpreting it.

My older sister called me a while ago and we discussed the situation of ourselves and that of the country in general. With the way the economic crisis is being handled, you can imagine what that conversation sounded like. She has her own business and things are very tough. I think my sister lives under a great deal of daily stress and she has high blood pressure, so I do worry about her a lot. Maybe I already mentioned that before. I worry about her general health and think she needs a complete check up. I wish I could give her an award.

I am not going to make this a long post, because I have to notify the recipients of the award and then walk the dog and clean up the kitchen. The Exfactor is coming over to help me change my bedroom around.

I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday and that it lives up to its name.

Irene, thank you so much for including me in sharing your award. I read Tessa's post, and don't think I can top that for beautiful writing. I always look forwards to your writing - and to your comments, they make my day, they really do.

Maggie May said...

That was lovely to think that you consider me to be building bridges.
Thanks Irene...... I have taken the award and will wait for my technical support to place it in the award thingummy. I am pretty hopeless at remembering to pass them on though so I am not so deserving as you think!

Hope you have a lovely time altering things around in your bed chamber!

Oh Irene! Thank you! It is lovely!

I will post it on my award page with much pride! It couldn't have come from a more deserving person who received it in the first place.
I'm honoured my friend.

Cheryl said...

Irene, you have no idea how much I appreciate this award. Building Bridges is a beautiful award, thank you very much. I'm so glad you received it, well deserved!

jeannette stgermain said...

Thank you Irene, for showing your friendship in sharing this award with us! Especially this one, since another (not blog) friend found me and hubby to be bridge builders (yes, he used the very same word, LOL).
Maybe you didn't see it, but I have a note in the right column about awards and tags - so I'll have to think of a solution. Read in the post above that you had a great day - I'm happy for you!

Grit said...

Crystal Jigsaw said...

That is a lovely award, you are quite right. Thank you so much for thinking of me too. I'll paste it onto my blog.
