two awards before work!

Thanks to Helen at Straight from Hel for this lovely award! Helen's blog is always worth a visit whether it is to hear the straight goods on publishing or hear another of her mermaid tails er tales - it is always facinating.


And Rosie over at East for Green Eyes gave me one back! I am completely going off the rails with this one!

I simply cannot say seven more things about myself so instead I'll list seven of my favorite things in the world...
1. being in a canoe in Prospect Bay with my Sweet Patootie
2. eating a good meal and having a great conversation (or the other way round) with good friends and family.
3. Diving into a new book by a fave writer.
4. going to the market with my step-dot
5. finding a strawberry in my new patch!
6. getting a real letter in the post.
7. none of your beeswax!

So! The following blog pals (some very new to me, some not so) can take either of these awards (or both) and pass it on or just hoard it. You can write about your seven most electrifying sexual moments or new words to the song 'A few of my favorite things'. Are we all clear here people! Now, I'm going to work. I love ya all.

Barbara over at From My Kitchen Table

And a big shout out to everyone to check out the new blog on the block by several wondrous women from the Burrow called Burrowers, Books and Balderdash and I think it is going to be great...

Congratulation on your awards, and thank you so much for the shout-out! I think there are Burrowers hopping up and down in our chairs all over the world today, equally excited for this new baby of ours. It is SO NICE that so many great friends are coming over for a visit :)

My little tartlette - again - I love to promote you wild women!
Helen - I wasn't supposed to get any yet as they are everbearings first years - I'm supposed to diligently pluck all the flowers off until - oh today or so- but I missed one! yummy!
There's a girl, Ann! I knew one of you could use your imagination in the right direction!
Talli - that's for me to know and you to conjecture...
