One more project that I completed was a table runner for Christmas.
SOME AWARDS FOR 2009.
I have also been blessed with two wonderful awards to start off 2009. The first one came from Baba and it states:
"This award focuses on the friendships that blossom here in blogland. Blogs who receive this award are 'exceedingly charming' say its authors. This blog invests and believes in the PROXIMITY-nearness in space, time and relationships. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.
Be sure to check out her blog and meet two adorable little twin boys.
The second one came from Midlife Mom and it says:
"The Blogger manifests exemplary attitude, respecting the nuances that pervades amongst different cultures and beliefs. The Blog contents inspire; strives to encourage and offers solutions. There is a clear purpose at the Blog; one that fosters a better understanding on Social,Political, Economic, the Arts, Culture and Sciences and Beliefs. The Blog is refreshing and creative. The Blogger promotes friendship and positive thinking. The Blogger who receives this award will need to perform the following steps:
1. Create a Post with a mention and link to the person who presented the Noblesse Oblige Award.
2. The Award Conditions must be displayed at the Post.
3. Write a short article about what the Blog has thus far achieved – preferably citing one or older Post to support.
4. The Blogger must present the Noblesse Oblige Award in concurrence with the Award conditions.
5. The Blogger must display the Award at any location at the Blog."
I am thrilled to add both of these to my blog, but to choose only a few of the blogs for these wonderful awards would be exceedingly difficult. I therefore welcome my faithful readers to accept them and pass them on to others. I find all of the bloggers that I follow to be friendly, charming, witty, talented in so many ways and very inspiring. I think we all are motivated by one another and are vastly improved because of blogging.
Did everyone enjoy the HUGE full moon that we had last week? I heard that it is the biggest moon of the year and I had to take a picture of it rising from the East.
One more note of interest was my Amaryllis that I started in early December. I had planned to have it bloom in time for Christmas, but it shot right up and had five huge blooms on a short stem the second week of December. I cut that one off and would you believe it shot up another stalk with SIX huge blossoms on a very tall stem? I was so impressed in spite of the fact that I did not get my Christmas bloom. I have never had one do that before. Has that happened to any of you?
I am off now to soak these sore muscles in a warm bath. I wish the best of all for everyone this coming week.
