It's Quiet Around Here ....

It's quiet around here! The others have gone to the park with HIMSELF to let him run off some energy before going to dinner. I've tried to do a little catching up with all of you during nap time. You all have been busy! I suggest that next time, we all take the same time off! Ha!

While I've been playing and laughing, I've received two awards. The first one is from my friend Sarah at Cottage Garden Studio. This award is a very special one to Sarah and is not to be passed on by me. I know how much this award means to Sarah and I'm overwhelmed that she decided to bestow it on me. Here's what she said: "Snap is one of those folks that has been with me from the very beginning of my blogging here and has been a constant, amazing support and I think a good friend. I have watched her blog bloom as she has too! I guess I think of her as kind of a mentor -- not sure she knows this -- LOL! Hope she does not mind too much!! Yes....I really like her too!!!"

Thanks, Sarah. I'm delighted to have the tag "mentor". It is an honor. And, I really like you, too!

The second Award is the OVER THE TOP award from my blogging buddy, Barbara at A Bird In My Hand.

So, here are the rules for this one:

Copy and change the answers to suit you and pass it on. It's quite tricky to use only one word answers! Once you have filled it out be sure to pass it on to 6 of your favorite bloggers. Alert them that they have been awarded! Have fun!

4. Your father? Missed
5. Your favorite food? Pasta

32. Your best friend? Husband.
33. One place that I go to over and over? Neighborhood
34. One person who emails me regularly? Carol
35. Favorite place to eat? Home

It is always hard for me to pass on awards, so this is what I've decided to do. I'm going to pass the OVER THE TOP AWARD on to some folks I've just met and a couple of *old* friends.

Here we go:

- Margo
- Sherry

Please visit them and say Hello and send them a little JOY!
