Tuesday:1 July, 2008: Prizes for some & flowers for all
Now something about me is that I sleep soundly and peacefully every night under my thick thatch roof. In a crisis, I sleep; when the neighbour's dogs bark, I sleep; when things go bump in the night, I say a prayer, turn over and sleep! But last night I tossed and turned under my pink mohair blanket.
Who of all my dear creative, innovative, kind, caring, wonderful blog friends should I honour?
I felt like I was a school teacher all over again - having to single out pupils for prizes. I squirmed like I did when I was a full-time mom, and Ruth received a prize and Cath didn't or vice versa!
But I can't put off the dreaded decisions any longer or I shall not be true to the spirit of the Arte Y Pico Award. Here are the five award winners - I tried to choose bloggers who are new to me (so that they know they are great discoveries) and I eschewed my old favourites (you surely know who you are!).
1 Susan at 29 Black Street
Susan lives in Nova Scotia and her wistful photos of her dogs brought a lump to my throat.
2 Pamela Terry and her crown prince, Edward at the House of Edward Pamela and her very handsome dog would have graced any great European throne of bygone days.
3 Ms Daisy at The daisy chain Ms Daisy has started her blog without the luxury of her own digital camera.She is painting her pictures mainly in words which is a lesson to all!
4 Viola at All things bright and beautiful Viola is a stylish professional with an exquisite blog but humble and friendly enought to share the most useful blogging tips with the technologically challenged like me.
5 Judy at Grand Lake I had to give you an award for yesterday's blog homage to that all important community resouce, the library.
Now the Award is in your court and you can bat it over the net to the next five winnners. (See the rules of the game below.)
And the rest of all you dear bloggers, above are two lovely flowers from my bare winter garden. They are no compensation prizes either! A pointsettia to remind you of Chrismas and a strelitzia regina (crane flower).
Rules of the Award in summary:
1 Choose 5 super blogs!
2 Publish on your blog and a link to each of the winners' blogs.
3 The winners must show the elegant trophy and add the name and link of the one who awarded you the prize.
4 Acknowledge also the link to the Arte Y Pico blog. How I wish I could speak Spanish! Gracias, Arte Y Pico for a lovely tradition.
