Friday Happenings





It's already Friday. Where did the week go? One day seems to blur right into the next. It's been a good week despite the rain showers, we needed to get a little more green around here. I keep my hears and eyes open for thunder though as I don't want the horses out in a storm.


They were all freaked out this morning. Of course those of you that have horses know that they love something to get all wound up about. This morning it was the two guys with their machines that were making little holes in the pasture to get some air in the soil and then they put down some new pasture mix on top of it. Well you would've thought there was a Mack truck out in the pasture, the guys were all eyes looking at them standing stiff as a board. Even Buddy was trying to buck a bit in protest of this invasion of his pasture! I went out and put them in and they watched out their windows and settled down finally.


I was so pleased and surprised when I read a comment from my bloggy friend Joan that she had given me a couple of awards! Of course I immediately went to her site http://erstwhilelibraian.blogspot.com/ to check it out!!!! They are The Creative Blogger Award and The Thoughtful Blogger Award. What the awards are for is this:


For those who answer blog comments, emails, and make their visitors feel at home on their blogs. For the people who take others feelings into consideration before speaking out and who are kind and courteous. Also for all of those bloggers who spend so much of their time helping other bloggers design, improve, and fix their sites. This award is for those generous bloggers who think of others.









I am very touched by this and do hope that I make people feel welcome at my site and want to come back. I know when I started in this world of blogging there were those that were so supportive of me and my endeavors so I need to pass these awards on. I don't especially like doing this as I HATE leaving anyone out as everyone has touched my life in one way or another but I guess the rules are you can just pick five.




Pea at Pea's Corner has become a friend to me. I know if we met in person we would talk a blue streak. She is always so faithful about stopping by and leaving lovely comments. She is upbeat, fun and interesting. She thinks of others, is creative in coming up with contests and the things she writes about.




dcrmom at musingsofahousewife has been so helpful to me throughout this learning process. She has tirelessly worked on helping me with technical things that I have been at a loss as to what to do. She is a young sahm with three beautiful children and has a comical outlook on life along with maturity beyond her years concerning her quest for a deep and meaningful spirituality.




Susie at Susie's Space is a joy! She has a fantastic relationship with her husband of 40 years and it shines through in her writing. She was one of the first ones that I stumbled onto when I first started this blogging journey and she gave me some names of other bloggers that she thought I would like and I liked ALL of them. Thanks Susie! She has posted pictures of her life through the years with her husband that have been so much fun to see and continues to post current pictures of their life together.




Tina at Palm Tree Fanatic comes up with the most wonderful Tackle It Tuesdays! She is amazing with her organizational skills. She also has menus to die for, I hold her personally responsible for my 5 lb. weight gain since I started blogging! lol! Not really, but she does have some wonderful recipes!


Dawn at Grandmaofthree has inspired me with her life. She has had trials and tribulations that no one should have to endure but has come through them with her faith intact and strong. She has two amazing stories about her son's deliverance from drugs and her daughter's struggle and recovery from anorexia. It's on her sidebar and well worth the time to go and read both accounts.



That is just five and seeings as there are two awards I am going to take the liberty of adding five more.


Donna at just me Donna is one of my horse lover friends. She has a beautiful gelding named Blue that she rides most days on the most wonderful trail rides. She posts some beautiful pictures of the scenery in her area that I drool over each time. She and her husband Cliff take time to do things together like riding their Gold Wing motorcycle and she is always ready with her camera to share interesting things that they see.


Barngoddess at ramblingsfromthereservation says it like it is. She shares her life with her Hubs and their boys plus a beautiful horse named Scooter. She doesn't mince words but I can tell she has a heart of gold and has given me such kind words as I have gone through my ordeal with my horse Buddy. She has been a real encouragement to me.


Tonya at thereisaseason is another horse buddy. She posts beautiful action pictures of one of her daughters doing barrel racing and her younger daughter and herself in the most wonderful costumes for Leadline class. It's worth a look to go see some of the outfits she comes up with such as Goofy and Minnie Mouse. The pony her daughter is riding is in a matching outfit as well. Tonya has a heart for God and it is very evident in her writing.



KC at mindlesschatterofabusymom was one of the very first sites I started reading. She is a really busy mom with children and husband but finds time to post wonderful menus, WW, Thursday Thirteens and Time Travel Tuesdays. She also posts pictures of her beautiful family and lots of the exciting things they do together. She is a Christian Mom and is teaching her children the ways of the Lord.


Myrna at Cherish the Word is one of the newest bloggy friends that I enjoy. She and her husband have some challenges in their life but with super attitudes and a heart for God they go forward. Myrna has some neat puzzles on her site, does some really interesting memes, puts the word out about contests and give aways that are going on in Bloggyville and has a beautiful 'new look'. Recently she gave some very good advice to all of us women to have our yearly check ups and mamm*ograms.


I still could go on and on about more of my favorite sites but I guess I'd better leave those for another time. I enjoy each and every one of the them as they all are different and interesting. Some others post the most beautiful pictures of flowers in their yards, I think there should be an award for that. You can see I am having trouble leaving people out of this award thing!! Anywho, that's it for tonight. Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend!

Thanks a bunch! I believe any of us would talk up a storm if we got together; I've been to some Internet-friends get-togethers, and it's so neat to meet somebody in person and find they are just the same as they were online. Always lots of talking and laughing, rather like a family reunion.
