A very special award

My friend, Cheryl, over at Desert Diva gave me this award! She enjoys my stories of the old days and said, " Someday, I’m sure I’m going to see Sandi’s blogging in novel form. She has quite a gift for sharing the stories of her life. Her posts often make me nostalgic and remember long forgotten memories. " I don't know about the novel part, but it's nice to know someone enjoys what I write.

So, I'm going to bestow an award or two myself on a couple of blogs that have brought smiles to my face over the past year, and encouraged me to try this blogging thing myself. Some of these folks have probably already been deemed Rockin' Girl Blogger, but they'll just have to accept a repeat.

Four Feet More - this is my daughter's blog and when she first started it I would pull it up first thing every day to get a fix of my new grandchildren. Plus Jenni is a great writer and most of the time either makes me laugh or cry.

Catheroominations - This was the first blog I ever read - before I really knew what the heck a blog was! C is a close friend of my daughter's and an excellent writer. She smart, witty, and observant of thngs happening around her. Some of her blogs are like mini-Seinfeld moments.

The Kept Woman - Last February Jenni sent me the link to this blog because TKW did a thing about how she hates Valentine's Day and hates hearts. Since we share that sentiment, Jenni knew that I would enjoy the post. Plus, at the time TKW had the words to I Will Survive in her heading and that's sorta my theme song.

There are so many others that I read often and enjoy, but these three have been on my "read" list for a long time and they are the ones that convinced me to try my hand at this.

Thanks to them!
