I begged Heather to let me post this uplifting photo of her beautiful daughter, Ellie, to open my version of the You Make My Day post. Thanks, Heather!!! Isn't it the perfect happy photo? Just looking at it makes my day.
Since I've been so slow to get this post typed up, I've been tagged for the You Make My Day award by (gulp) six bloggers: Heather, Eva, CJ, Bonnie, Jenclair, and Amy. Because all six of them have obviously posted on the You Make My Day award and they all make my day, I've decided to send each one a separate award (which Bonnie gave me . . . and I just discovered Raidergirl3 also gave me -- right back at both of you!!!). Here you go, guys:
The point of the Mwah! award is "to hand some of that love and kindness back around to those who have been so very, very, very good to me in this bloggy world. My hope is that those who receive this award will pass it on to those who have been very, very, very good to them as well. It's a big kiss, of the chaste platonic kind, from me to you with the underlying 'thanks' message implied. I really do appreciate your support and your friendship and yes, your comments. ... Mwah!"
What a nice sentiment, don't you think?
~~~ We interrupt this post for a special annoyance. Or, announcement. I tried -- oh, how I tried, people -- to write "little blurbs" about why I adore all the people who are on my "You Make My Day List". But, there's this problem, see . . . they were turning into essays. I am so filled with adoration that I can't shut up. So, I've decided to delete the descriptions and just post a list. Trust me; they're all worth visiting. End Annoying Announcement~~~
And, The Official You Make My Day List . . . I must add that the following bloggers are only a few of those who regularly make my day (because I'm supposed to choose 10, I believe) and that I decided not to bother checking to make sure they hadn't already been tagged because . . . well, because I feel like it and they still make my day, even if they're also making someone else's (which they probably are):
Kookiejar of A Fraternity of Dreamers
Cupcake of A Truth Universally Acknowledged
Raidergirl3 of An Adventure in Reading
SuziQ of Blogging My Books
Tara of Books and Cooks
Nikki of Keep This on the DL - Update: You must read her post about The New Guy. I nearly fell out of my chair.
Carrie of My Middle Name is Patience
Stephanie of The Written Word
Nat of In Spring it is the Dawn
Jessica of In Search of Dessert
I could go on. But, I'm not supposed to and everyone knows what a sweet, well-behaved little thing I used to be. I'm falling back on my past to try to make myself behave in the present.
Sorry for the posting delay - next up will be the promised book reviews. I read another book, yesterday, in between naps. Apparently, I ran out of fizz because I slept and slept and slept and read and read and slept and slept and slept. Anyway, I finished Point Blank by Anthony Horowitz and the next 5 posts will be book reviews unless someone slips me a highly caffeinated drink. I could have probably used one, yesterday.
