I’ve been awarded!

I have just received my first ever award.  I’m flattered.  😀  I was nominated by Tiffany.
proximidadeaward_thumbThis is what the award means:
“This blog invests and believes in the PROXIMITY-nearness in space, time and relationships. These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement! Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers!”

And this is why Tiffany nominated me:
Robin at Rockin’ the Loom https://rockintheloom.wordpress.com/ She has all kinds of great info on looming and she’s a nice person to email with. She teaches classes on loom knitting and makes everything seem so easy!

How incredibly sweet!  I’m very honored….REALLY!

So, I am passing along this lovely award to a few of my friends that came to mind as I read the description of the award.
1.)  Jenny Stark at GuppyGirl .  I don’t nominate her because she is my best friend, but I nominate her because she has a pretty cool blog and isn’t in it for the popularity.  She sometimes blogs about food, her 4 kids, looming, embroidery, crochet….all kinds of cool stuff.  And she is such a sweet and friendly person (if not quiet most of the time.)  😀
2.)  Bethany Daily at Gettin’ It Pegged .  Ever since I first ran across Bethany’s blog, I thought it was special and unique.  She keeps it so clean and pretty and blogs about life as much as she blogs about other stuff.  She has taught me a lot and has the same kind of loving patience that I try to instill in my own life.  Bethany is another one of those incredibly sweet people, and her daughters are following in her footsteps, and that makes her a great mom as well. 
3.)  Brenda Myers at LoomLore .  Brenda is a very busy grandma!  But she still has time to make the cutest quickie projects and her patterns are always very clear and easy to read.  She developed the ‘drawstring cast on’ for the looms and it is a very useful technique that I have used a lot.  🙂  Brenda may not have much time to blog like she used to, since her granddaughter moved in, but she still helps out others when she can.  She’s pretty special!

Besides this award, I wanted to blog about Mondays.  I know it is Monday, not because yesterday was Sunday and I was at church, not because the weekend is over and a new week has begun.  No….I know it is Monday because I am up early, have all my e-mail read and answered, drank one cup of coffee (at least, sometimes 2), and have my LKNB-Class lesson and sometimes exercises posted on both the group and the blog before 7am.  I’m a little tired, but I’ll hopefully get a nap in the afternoon to refuel. 
The kids don’t look so hot and we all feel a bit icky.  Add that it looks gloomy and blustery outside, that yesterday it almost hit 80*, but today we could see lows in the mid-20’s and possibly snow showers….it makes for a day where you just want to huddle in a quilt with a cup of something warm in your hands all day and veg out on the couch. 
What makes that hard is that it is also ‘Weekly Home Blessing’ day.  That is a FlyLady thing, in case you are confused.  It means that I take an hour and spend 10 minutes running around washing windows, then dusting, then vacuuming, then sweeping, then mopping….  I think you get it by now.  I just don’t feel like it today.  And I didn’t feel like doing dishes all weekend long, obviously.  So, I need to do dishes, too.  Did you know that when your dishes are overflowing your sink, across your countertop and onto your stove top, that spending 15 minutes at a time on them, isn’t that bad?  I’ll set the timer for 15 minutes and wash dishes.  When the timer goes off, I walk away for about 30 minutes, come back, run some more hot water in the sink to warm up the water that is in there, and reset my timer for 15 minutes and go at it again.  😀  Not so bad.

OK, I gotta go…..hungry children might decide to make their own breakfast and that could be disastrous!
