Cleaning Out My Closet.... Awards

Friday, October 8, 2010

Since I’m still sick and needing something to do I decided to clean out my closet, that is when I found these. Awards just sitting there, waiting patiently to be handed out, why not end the week on a high note?

Before I get to the handing out I do have some real blogging issues to address. Blogger is in a state of metamorphous and I think it is screwing with us all. I have been told at times my followers do not appear, all the while I see you fine. Please if you have any problem with anything about this blog, leave a comment. Let me know, Blogger fools us into thinking what we see is what you see; not true! So can you help a girl out?

Awards…Mary @ Giggles and Guns passed this award on to me and I am extremely honored. The mere title caused me to pause and scream, “WOW!” Mary has been a faithful commenter to my blog and I just love hers. When I need to laugh, Mary provides the funnies; when I need to think Mary asks the question; you get the idea. Go ahead jump over and check her out. Thank you my dear bloggie friend.

The rules for this award are as follows:

  1. Thank and link back to the person who gave you this award.
  2. Display the award logo on your site.
  3. List five of your favorite words and tell why you like them. Add as many as you wish.
  4. Pass the award to three bloggers you feel are excellent Literacy Builders, and link to their sites.
  5. Contact the bloggers and let them know about the award.

My five words:
Hello: Simple, yet huge. A smile inducer, a people greeter, it will melt ice in 0 to 6 seconds.
Imagine: Without imagine would we even write at all?
Diversity: A true being is a diverse being. Not judgmental or one-sided.
Honesty: I can live with truth but lies? Lies you just never forget.
Thing-ma-bob: This is my description of any thing that I either do not know what it is, forgot the name of or is the critical part to a “Do-ma-Hickey.” I use this word at least 50 times a day.

Well, true to form I’m breaking a rule and giving this to 5, and they are:
Bossy Betty, My 100th Follower.
Clarissa @ Listen to the Voices. Because she does so much good work in this area.
Olivia @ That Rebel with a Blog. I really want to see her 5 words.
Shannon @ Green Monkey Tales. I wanted to pick her up after her recent rejection.
Katie @ Katie Gates: Stories and Opinions. Because I think we have the same wardrobe.

Carolyn @ Serendipity gave this award. Again, I am extremely honored and want to say, thank you Carolyn. Carolyn has been educating me on the far reaches of our world. She is teaching me of Turkey and all sorts of cultural tidbits, go visit her.

The rules are simple, pass it on to 3 other fellow bloggers and you are:

OJ Gonzalez-Cazares @ Casta Zero
Mary @ Giggles and Guns
The Golden Eagle @ The Eagle's Aerial Perspective

Finally I received from NR Williams, Fantasy Author this “Lovely Blog” award. NR is having a Halloween Party. So get your freak on and join the party. As you can see I have been blessed with this before. Not to look a gift horse in the mouth, but I honestly cannot do 15 more blogs, I’m sick.

Here’s the deal I’ve come up with. I’m passing this on to all my new followers and those who are kind enough to comment. Do not be SHY, step up and claim your award. Drop a comment, in the comment link to your blog and take it. If I was not sick I’d mention you by name but you know who you are and I need my strength, so have pity on me.

There my closet is clean now. Everyone have a wonderful weekend.

Blogger's acting up with me, too! My Dashboard is all over the place and isn't working.

Thank you so much for awarding me! :D

I will pass on taking that award back. I have a confession, I almost did what you just did. 15 is a lot. I don't think the award machine will break down if you cut that number back.

Thank you for letting others know about my Halloween Party.

Enjoyed your post. Blogger has a mind of his own sometimes.

We'll do our best to keep up the good work ;) Have a great Friday!!

Thanks for the award! I am notorious for sticking them in my closet and not doing a darn thing with them--sort of like all that exercise equipment I have! Still, I really appreciate the shout-out. Hope you feel better soon!!

Why fix something that isn't broken? Blogger is acting funky and I don't like it either. Hopefully they get their act together. Your blog looks good :)

Olivia J. Herrell said, 

Jules, I hope you're feeling a whole lot better today and for your trip!! Congrats on all those awards.

I have just one question: where is your closet?? I need one of those. I'm terribly disorganized lately and think I must have one or two (or so) that I haven't passed on yet, but goodness knows where they are. Hmmm. Needs me one of those thingamabobs. Do tell.

Thank you so much for passing the first one on to me. I don't have my glasses on so I'm not sure yet what I won :) but I like your five words and will come up with five for you.

In the meantime, feel better!!!

I haven't noticed any exceptionally new problems on blogger. Mostly it seems to be working okay for me.

Nothing like some house cleaning, eh?

Hope you start feeling better for the weekend.

Congratulations...I can think of no one more deserving.

Blogger has been giving me fits, too. Maybe it will cure itself soon.

Thanks, Jules! I'm going to have to think long and hard about the five words... Hope you feel better soon! (Hey, that was five words right there!)
