Well, this is a delightful way to celebrate two years of blogging! Look what I found yesterday in my mail:
It is our honor to present you and your blog with "The Rosehaven Cottage Rose Medallion for Excellence". You have received this award of recognition for your excellence in blogging...Thank you for your wonderful blog and for your friendship. There is so much about your writing that brings us joy. We feel like we've gotten to know you and consider you a friend. In fact, when we saw that a nor'easter was forecast yesterday my first words were, "Poor Jody!" :)
Heartfelt thanks to Cindy, Brent *aka Hubby*, and the catchildren of Rosehaven Cottage for this award! Indeed, they are friends across the miles, as so many of you are, and that's the true joy of blogging, isn't it? Cindy and the gang are great cheerleaders for other bloggers, but they also deserve to have cheers sent right back at them, because the various blogs at Rosehaven Cottage are not to be missed. So if you haven't already, get on your snowshoes and snowsurf over to Rosehaven, and prepared to be delighted by the wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm there.
Which suggests to me that I ought to initiate a blogging award too. But first, I'll have to figure out HOW to do the HTML for an award (oh, son...I need some help here!? ) and just what I'd like to give it to people for. I'll have to do some mulling over that, maybe as I watch the snow blow by. (We got a nice dumping of about 8 inches, but the wind is blowing here quite well and so I expect snow sculptures all around the yard before day's end.)
