Okay, I don't know how to get the little picture thingie on here. But several weeks ago, several folks picked my blog for the "You Make My Day Award". Well, since I seem to be pretty slow moving, I'm only now getting around to posting about it.
I want to thank Nancy, Kathy & Allena for honoring me with this award. Blogging is a fun outlet that I enjoy, but the community and comments are what really make it enjoyable. So, since I obviously don't know what the heck I'm doing, and am not sure how this works, I'm going to share with you 'whose blogs make my day'. Before I do that though, since I enjoy the blogs of those that nominated me, and they'd be on the list anyway, I'll start there. Nancy's Shepherd's Voice blog is filled with lovely photos of her sheep, dog, cats and the beauty of where she lives. Even through recent difficulties her determination to keep her farm and flock of sheep are truly inspiring. And don't forget Dream and her comments! Kathy at Sheep Thrills is also an inspiration as she has dealt with different problems throughout the year. She continues to inspire and amuse with her wit and humor even during the hard times. And the snow. All that awful, awful snow. Go check out how Skittles copes by digging his beloved tire out of the snow. Kathy also was so kind to call me and help me get my spinning wheel sorted out. If you want to enjoy some sharp humor take a trip over to Allena's Three Ring Ranch. Allena shares the drama and detail of being a mom to 4 with another on the way. She continues to learn and improve her sheepie knowledge and is very excited about the upcoming lambing season!
So here are the rest of the 'You Make My Day" blogs. I have my list of favorites that I try and stop in and visit everyday. They do often 'make my day'.
Ramblings of T is my niece's blog. She is a refreshing Godly young lady who is very frugal in many things, and enjoys saving her money for the really good stuff. She has been working steadily towards her chosen field of profession, and is now midway through her internship. While this isn't a sheepie blog, it is worth the visit to see how she saves money and practically gets things for free! Besides she is my niece and I'm very, very proud of her! :-)
Michelle's Boulderneigh is one of the first blogs I regularly visited. I enjoy her honest style of writing, and the pictures are always either amusing or lovely. We seem to have allot in common and have often posted very similar posts. I like keeping up with Jackson, the new puppy, the Shetlands and all the other projects she does in her busy lifestyle.
Tina's Blip on the Radar is usually very upbeat and good for a smile. She has a good perspective on the world and I enjoy her view. Plus the pictures are alway gorgeous. And I love Neelix the cat!
Vicki Lane Mysteries is another favorite that has nothing to do with sheep! :-) Vicki has written a series of paperback mysteries with Elizabeth Goodweather as the main character. These books are set in the Appalachians and she does a tremendously good job of bringing the hills and people to life. Her fourth book will be out in May and she is working on her fifth one at the moment. It has been interesting to follow some of what goes into putting together the background for her book via the blog.
Sheila's Pinewood Shetlands is a refreshing place to visit. Among other things she offers scripture and insight for us as we navigate the struggles and joys of life. She has some great pictures too!
Corinne' Crosswinds Farm has some great posts. You will laugh out loud at the antics of her dogs (and herself, snapping photos through the screen!) during a recent snow. Plus I just love that Gulmoget of hers!
Lastly is Perfect Tosca. I find this blog hysterically funny. It features beautiful Perfect Tosca, the Tri-colored Collie. Of course I love Collies, but anyone who enjoys dogs will get a kick out of this blog, as Tosca gives her views of the world from her own perfect self perspective.
Thanks again everyone--for those who read my blog and for those who choose to share their lives through their own blogs. Long live blogdom!
