Blogging Buddies Award

Hanna, over at has given me and Vincenzo A.Romano the L'Award di Stacie, which Stacie at Stacie's Blog gave to Hanna. I hope I've gotten this right, in spite of my ignorance of the Italian language and all things HTML. Anyway, accepting and passing on awards is time-consuming (and I'm way behind on this!) but such a good way of building community. I'm always in awe of the number of great blogs I've still to check out!

I will pass this Blogging Buddies Award on to Cindy at and to Kim at, because I've enjoyed their blogging style and content, as well as their friendship. Congrats, Cindy and Kim! And thank you Hanna! (For anyone who is wondering why I've been able to embed some of the above sites and not others, it's because I just copied them from Hanna's page. Thanks again, Hanna! :-)

  4. Hi Cindy,

    I hope your days get brighter soon! I know it's not just the weather that has you down.

    Kind thoughts and warm hugs to you.

  5. Well, Kim, I guess you might feel like jumping in the water of a cold mountain stream, as it's summer in Australia. If you were here, you would want to huddle by the fire!

  6. Thank you again, dear Hanna! What a nice surprise to get that award today!

    I love your country and your language, though in Italian, I can say only one sentence. "Io penso que la compagne et le montagne et le cielo sono toute belo!"

    Did I do that right? Prego...

    Sometime I have to show you my Italy pics. It's the only place I've been outside the USA except for a brief foray into Canada, but I would LOVE to go back!

    Thanks again, Hanna!

  7. hahaha!
    "io penso che le campagne, le montagne ed il cielo sono tutte belle"

I try to respond to comments whenever I can. I ALWAYS appreciate your visits and friendship, and I will reciprocate with visits to your site. Thanks for sharing parts of your blogging journey with me. I value each and every one of you.

NOTE: Please, no more memes, schemes, or awards. They're fun and they may help us to know each other better, but I'd rather spend the time reading your posts and having you READ mine!

Happy blogging!
