Day 35 and 36 – Relaxation and Receiving and Giving Awards


Perhaps relaxation is not really accurate.  I think the word “lazy” is a little more appropriate to describe yesterday’s big theme.  It rained and rained and rained and I slept and slept and slept.  It was weird that I slept that much and even weirder (this is so grammatically correct) that my family allowed me to get away with it.  And it was dreamy.  But now lazy time is over, and I am ready to get moving again.  Hello family and housework!


I wanted to put a quick note of thanks out to all my wonderful friends who have nominated me for various lovely awards.  I love your blogs as well and hope that anyone who reads this will definitely check them out, too.  Here is the quick summary.  By the way, I have yet to figure out an esthetically pleasing way to lay these out so please bear with the funky appearance.  Thanks! gave me a buffet of awards from which to choose because like me, she is a serious rule bender (and I love it!).  Thanks sweet sweet girl for the One Lovely Blog Award!  Please go to her blog because it is truly a spiritual feast for your soul. and nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award.  These are two blogs I would have given this award to myself, so I definitely take it as a compliment to receive it from them.  I adore these women and find strength in their faith, joy and clever words!  They are well worth following! nominated me for the Mrs. Sparkly’s Award and the Illuminating Blogger Award.  You know those people in your life that cheer you on and support you always?  That’s Cindy.  She is a true friend and has faith deeper than the ocean.  I am blessed to have her in my life. and nominated me for the the Reader Appreciation Award.  These two blogs are all about faith and the love it brings into our worlds.  Wendall – your poetry is magnificent beyond words.  Dianne – you are like a candle lighting the way for us all.  I adore both of you so much more than you know!

And last but never ever least – nominated me for the Beautiful Blogger Award.  This is such a true compliment coming from her because she is truly beautiful.  If you ever need something lovely to lift your spirits, please go to and listen.  Your soul will smile.  Thank you so very much my dear friend for thinking of me.  :)

If you gave me an award and I did not include it, I am so very sorry!  I did a quick scan of the comments over the last month, but there were a million comments and that methodology doesn’t always prove reliable.  If you discover that I left you out, please let me know so I can send some love to your blog!  Thank you truly to everybody for your kindness and support.  I love you back!

And now it’s time for the rule bending!  Each award has a handful of rules and requirements, and I am going to modify them a teensy bit (completely and totally).  I am going to list a handful of blogs I adore and allow them to pick whichever award they would like to add to their award kitty!  For the record, I believe that each of you deserve every one of these awards, but that might send some of those heavy duty rule followers over the edge.  ;)  These are in no particular order so don’t stress! :)  Also there are a couple more I wanted to add but can’t find the correct address.  It appears that several of you have changed or cancelled your wordpress blog sites!  Hopefully you know that I adore you and feel like you strongly deserve these, too!

This is quite the smorgasbord of blogs, so I would think everyone could find something (or many somethings) to pique their interest.  Blessings to all of you always.  Love and light.  MoJo  :)

    once again, you have given me my laugh out loud moment for the day with the picture! we had a cocker spaniel that used to float around our pool too.
    but this time you also have stunned me with your sweet, generous, description of me! I am so very touched by this. I hope you know I feel very deeply for you and for all the different ways you write! One never knows…which is what is so fun! Thank you for adding that daily spice to my life.
    And i will cherish the award-I don’t have a beautiful blogger award and I don’t think I have a versitle blogger award, but I don’t want to be greedy. This morning I got a Ten Commandments Award-which was pretty serious!Thank you so much Jo..but especially for your friendship.

    First, let me say thank you from the bottom of my heart, second, relaxation, resting, or lazy, I don’t really care what you call it…it’s that self love thing we all need to work on, sometimes a little lazy is just what the doctor (or healer) called for. ;-)

    Thank you so much Mo Jo. I don’t get to break the rules that often (In real life. Not sure what the blogging ones are. I’m sure I break those all the time.) so I think I’ll go along with you on this one just fine. It is better to give than receive so I will see if I can’t just hand out as many as possible. I don’t mind. Once again……thanks for noticing me.
