Thank you!! (Dardos Award)

Wow. . . My blog has received an award!

They are not unusual in the blogosphere, but it's my first, so I'm. . . well. . . tickled pink! :) The ever-lovely Kyddryn of Shade and Sweetwater has bestowed this blessing upon me, for which I am quite grateful. It's a Dardos Award.

From Kitmama's Pensieve

"The Dardos Award is in appreciation of the merits - cultural, literary and individual- of every blogger who expresses him/herself on his/her blog.

The conditions are to:
Be tickled pink,
Copy and paste the award picture to your blog,
Write down the regulations,
Link the blog who bestowed you the award,and finally
Nominate 15 blogs for the award."

(Aside: "dardos" means "darts" in Spanish. Is it that the nominating process is like throwing darts at blogopolis?? Hmm.)

Anyway, thank you, Kyddryn!

Now for the nominating. . . I'm afraid I will have to gift fewer than 15 blogs, as I simply don't read enough blogs to choose that many winners, and some of the blogs I do read would be unlikely to "play" the award game. So, consider these 5 blogs to be the cream of the cream of the crop! :)

1) I begin with Bird of The Birds in the Meadow. Beautiful photography, inspired musings and a great shop, to boot!

2) Next, I award Robin of Naked in Eden. Simply because she is a true ray of sunshine in my digital universe.

3) I honor Black Hockey Jesus of The Wind in Your Vagina. For some of the best writing I've found in blogopolis.

4) And Laurie over at Foolery. Because she's FUNNY, and I enjoy her perspective.

5) And finally, to Kyddryn at Mainstream Green. Helpful musings and information on "Going Green". Right back atcha, darlin'!

I hereby give permission to my nominees to nominate as many or as few blogs as they please. ;) Thanks again, and thank you to all my honored blogs- you enrich my life! :)

Dear "Kitmama!!!! I am Very honored to be listed here. I must admit also shocked and tickled pink. Thank you from my heart. You listed some other VERY good blogs here as well. I love them.

I also want to tell you that your comment on my post THE OBVIOUS? is amaaaaaaaazing. I do that same thing every day. I ask myself if I were 110 years old (you said 111) :):) how would I look back on this. And yes!!! It is the small things that are the VERY VERY BIG things, they are the things that are important. I walk with my husband, a hug, time out to roll in the snow--even though I'm buried in work. I will look back and be GLAD I rolled in the snow. I will NOT look back and think oh I shouldn't have rolled in the snow, I should have worked. Not a chance.

Thank you for reaffirming this in me too. You are am amazing and insightful human being. Very wise. Your kids, husband and friends are lucky to have you in their lives.

Thank you for making my life more real. Hugs, Robin

Kit, I've been offline for a couple of days, so thank you for making my dull and spam laden inbox a much, much happier place on my return! You know you were one of the first regular readers I ever had and that means a great, great deal to me. THANK YOU for all the times you've stopped by and left kind encouraging comments, and thank you for this award! I'm looking forward to checking out the other winners, a couple are already old favourites. And at the risk of coming across all butt kissy I have to point out that you getting a blog award was way overdue, the person who nominated you gets a big thumbs up and I'm going to go and tell them so right now!
