The Envelope, Please (Part 2)

Yesterday I acknowledged various awards that I have received from fellow bloggers and passed them on to deserving individuals. I have one more award that I didn't get to yesterday: The Superior Scribbler Award which is given for great writing. Cougar at Cougar Tales gave me this award, and it means a lot to me. I decided in my retirement to take up writing, and the fact that someone thinks I do it well pleases me to no end!

That being said, I'd like to pass this award on to Mesina at And Then There Was Me. She is, indeed, a superior scribbler! I love reading her posts, and I'm sure you will, too. She manages to write thoughtful, entertaining posts, despite the fact that she has 3 kids!

Blogging has been a godsend to me. I retired in April of this year, and if I hadn't discovered blogging as a creative outlet, I'd probably have torn out all my hair by now! (And-trust me on this one--an old, overweight, bald-headed woman would not be a pretty sight!) Also, I gain inspiration from reading other bloggers' posts. There are so many, talented, funny bloggers out there. Thank you all for the laughs, the tears, and entertainment you have all brought to my life.

Oh Eva!! You are such a riot! I loved the "10" things you revealed about yourself! Now if I could just figure out how to get you into my lineup on my sidebar with all my other bloggy buds! I have tried different ways...now it's time for my hubby to help I guess! I am so glad I found you and I can hardly believe we are 30 minutes away!! At least three of the ladies on my faves are from Maine....Dawn at C & G design...Kathleen at Rural Maine...and of course DowneastDoingStuff....but you probably already know that? Glad I found you!

Eva!!

Well, Eva it's no surprise to me that you were given this award, as your writings are truely superb! I love stopping by and reading what you have to say, just love the posts and your humor is so to my taste.

But second, WOW! Thank you! What lovely things to be said about my lil ol blog. Like you, I've taken up writing as an outlet for myself, but I never expected to be any good at it. The fact that someone is appreciating what I do just makes it so worth while to keep on writing! x
