The Winner’s Circle

I’m in shock.  I’ve seen these awards on many of the blogs I read, I just didn’t think I’d get one.  My acceptance speech is not ready.

So I’ll just say thank you to Let’s CUT the Crap! at   That’s How the Cookie Crumbles for my Versatile Blogger award.I’m guessing we have a mutual admiration society going here.

I’m honored.

My acceptance is to include some info (x7) about myself that you may not know.

That’s a hard one.  After all, I bare my soul post after post, year after year.  Where’s the surprise?  Hmm…

1.  My skin and hair are both white.  I could disappear on a snowy day.

2.  Most of  the lies I tell are white, too.

3.  My home is colorful.

4.  My language can be colorful at times…especially after a glass of wine.  (I always told my kids that bad language was a lack of being able to express oneself.   The more I drink, the less articulate  and more colorful I become.)

5.  I can’t remember to Twitter.  Only porn types seem to want to follow me, so it’s not a worry.

6. When I do remember, I can’t think of anything interesting to say and so it is generally just self-promotion which seems to be the point anyway.

Are your bored yet?  Only one short one to go.

7. I drive a Prius and love it.

Whew!  Made it through that.   And now for the easy part…  I love a lot of blogs, but I am trying to pass this award on to some you may not have noticed.

If you love thoughtful writing, read  My Oprah Lessons.  She lets you in on her thoughts as they come to her.  Great place to brush up on Oprah Life Classes, too.

 My Funny Little Life is Kath’s sometimes whimsical view of life and includes delicious, healthy recipes with mouth-watering photos.

I guess I favor women who are taking me on their journey with them.  Life Is A Bowl of Kibble does that for me.

Back on My Own falls in this same category.

When I want to laugh aloud on the way, then I read (Love) Notes to Self.  If you have the blues, just dig into her archives and be prepared.

Year Struck is probably the most versatile of all.  She can make me laugh, make me cry, and intimidate me with her biting wit and wordsmithing.  (I just notice that she has already one every award there is in the blogging world…but I’m leaving her on the list anyway.)

Maybe it’s cheating to name Vision and Verb, since I contribute now and again.  But I love this international gathering of women who each post their beautiful photography accompanied by wonderful words.  It never fails to inspire me.

And speaking of inspiration.  Love Isn’t Enough is a thought-provoking site whose contributors concern themselves with raising their children as free from prejudice as is possible in a color-struck world.  They have taught me much about my own attitudes and those in the world that I may not have recognized.

I think I have obeyed the rules…except I have to go now and inform the women behind all of these great sites that they are the recipients.  Sorry this is gender oriented…I’ll just have to pimp the men I follow in some other way.


Official Rules of the Award

  1. Thank the award-giver(s) and link back to them in your post.
  2. Tell your readers seven (7) things about yourself.
  3.  Give this award to up to fifteen (15) recently discovered bloggers.
  4. Contact those bloggers and let them in on the exciting news.


  1. I like to think of you as a completely white persons. That seems so pure and above-everything to me. 🙂

    I can’t believe you used the word “whimsical” to describe my blog. If I had to describe myself in one word, “whimsical” would be it. (It is just logical then that this quality also shows up with my blog.) Amazing you saw the bottom of my existence at the first sight. 😛


    • Thanks, Kath. I’m not sure that pure has ever described me, but I appreciate the thought.
      I love your whimsy. I’d like to have some of that.


  2. Congratulations on being in the Winners Circle! And thanks so much for passing it on to me. I’m honored and surprised. I’m in the process of fulfilling the requirements:) Fun acceptance speech, by the way. Loved it!
    Thanks for all of your wonderful posts. You are so thoughtful and full of love.
