A Much Delayed Award

Absolutely ages ago Rayna of Coffee Rings Everywhere passed on the Sweet Blog Award to me.
Rayna was a bit concerned that I might not like having my blog called a ‘sweet blog’, taking it as a slight on my masculinity (or something). Well Rayna you can rest easy, anyone who spends hours trying to photograph cute fuzzy grey blobs is not going to blink at the epithet ‘sweet’.Now this award was passed on to me with no rules, so I am just going to do what Rayna did and pass it on to some other bloggers whose blogs I enjoy.

In no particular order, I pass this award to:

Amanda at A Library of My Own

Jenifer at Ten lives and Second Chances

Anne at Piedmont Writer

Claudia at Claudia Del Balso

and Pamela Jo at Theres Just Life

By the way Pamela Jo has passed me an award as well that I am well and truly going to have to pass on.
But I am tired tonight, so I am sorry Pamela Jo it will have to wait a bit longer.

Now for something completely different.
I took so many piccies on the weekend that I am going to have to break things into a couple of posts.
Now I am going to put you all on the spot - a quick and informal vote.

Which would you rather I post about first?

Cockatoos and parrots?Or raging water?Have a look at these two teasers and let me know in a comment.

Congrats on the award. :)

Hmm, I vote for raging water. I like cockatoos and parrots, but the bird was giving me a freaky stare in the picture. lol.

Rayna M. Iyer said...

I say raging water, but the kids will say cockatoos. You decide! They are both going to be really great.

And lots of new blogs for me to check out. Thanks.

Jayne said...

I'm also for the raging water! And congrats on your award. :)

Jaydee Morgan said...

Congrats on your award and I also vote for the raging waters. That pic is fabulous!

Piedmont Writer said...

Congratulations on your award, and you are very sweet. Fuzzy grey blobs notwithstanding.

I can't decide about the piccies. I think raging water. I don't have any anymore where I live and I miss it.

Oh, and thank you for giving me the award. That's very sweet. See.

Marguerite said...

Hart Johnson said...

Congrats on the award! LOVE the fuzzy gray blobs! And I vote raging water... I am a huge fan of turbulent waters in all forms... seas, rivers, falls... love them.

Christine said...

Congratulations on your sweet blog award.

I would love to hear about the raging water!

What a wonderful photo. You really captured the waters movement.

Carolyn V. said...

Congrats on the awards!

I love water, at least pictures of water, so I'm going with that. =)

Jemi Fraser said...

I was all set to go for the birds when I saw the first photo - then I saw the water!! Too hard to choose!

I'll vote alphabetically so birds first :)

Theres just life said...

Thank you so much for the award. No problem about the other. I get behind myself.
I love the cockatoos and parrots, but that raging water picture has me really curious. More water please.

So sorry Mr Cockatoo. I still love ya, I promise.

Water seems to be the choice of most.

Hi Ann,

Water seems to be the one that is most popular.

Hi Jemi,
Another bird lover! I guess the poor cockies were starting to feel neglected.

Hi Pamela Jo,
You are welcome. Thank you for being so forgiving :-)

Hi Jennifer,
You are welcome, and I think you are sweet too.
I guess Charlie is too even though he pretends to be a grumpy-britches.

You are welcome, a well deserved award.
