I have been honored to receive this award by some of my sweet blogging buddies. If I left out anybody who gave me this award, please forgive me. My memory is nonexistent right now and I wouldn't for the world overlook or hurt anybody feelings.Dear MEOW was the first to honor me with this award. She is a hoot to talk with on MSN and we always have a good time laughing and joking. We've been blogging buddies for over a year now and she was one of my first regular readers and commenters as I was on her blog.
My sweet friend MEOW said this: "Diane - Diane is a family oriented, full of life blogger, who shares her dinners and family life with us all. Always a wonderful place to visit."I haven't known Miss Lyndy very long but I always enjoy my visits to her pretty blog home. She has the most beautiful pink and white tulips on her blog header and they never fail to cheer me when I visit her. Lyndy's unflagging faith in light of the blows life has dealt her lately is an inspiration to me.
Dear LYNDY said this: "Diane at Diane's Place. Diane is from Arkansas and a new Grammy to baby Emmy and just pleased as punch to be so. She is a hoot to read and I always feel as if I were sitting right there beside her, as I read her blog. She is one of those people that you could meet in real life and just feel like you had known forever. She loves her family and has a sweet husband Lamar and beautiful daughter and a passel of sisters that are just as sweet and loving as she is. And people this family loves each other. It is such a blessing to me to read about how they love each other. Oh and if you don’t know what a passel is…visit Diane and I guarantee she will be able to tell you."My turn now, hmm?
I have to include my sisters, DONNA and CECIL. I love that we can share this fun blogging thing and keep in touch here. I'd love it even more if they would POST MORE OFTEN, PLEASE!! Of course they have silly things taking up their time, like working and taking care of their families.
And Donna is a GRANDMA AGAIN so that's taking up some of her time right now, plus she's been picking blackberries and making jam.
GREENEYES is a dear friend that I have become really close to over the last year and a half. There are a handful of my blogging buddies that I am extra close to and we just clicked almost immediately. GreenEyes is one of those few and it's almost like she's a long lost sister. We find that we have more in common every time we "talk" together. We also share a hearty sense of humor. Some might even say we're a bit twisted. :-)
EARLY BIRD is another long-time blogging buddy. She now lives in Ohio but was born and raised in Kentucky, so we share a lot of Southern commonalities. We email back and forth almost every day and have talked on the telephone a few times, and we utilize the U.S. postal service quite often. She's another of the handful of really close relationships I have with some of my blogging friends.
I mentioned in last blog that I had won EARLY BIRD'S Fairy Giveaway. I got the package in the mail today and I love everything, Early Bird!
You didn't mention the little wheel barrow, did you?
I'm not the best photographer in the world, but you can at least tell what everything is.
Thanks again, Early Bird! I'm already thinking about where I want to put everything. Of course I only have one tree, a redbud, but who says you can't have a fairy door in a rosebush? :-)
I have another award to pass on in my next post, plus I took some new pictures of Emmy when I visited with her and Jessica on Wednesday. This post is already long enough so I'll save those for the next post as well.
I hope everyone has a great Friday.
