This Is Me--2024 A to Z Theme

My A to Z Themes in the past have covered a range of topics and for 2024 the theme is a personal retrospective that I call "I Coulda Been" which is in reference to my job and career arc over my lifetime. I'll be looking at all sorts of occupations that I have done or could have done. Maybe you've done some of these too!

Awards and all

            Now, let's see.... how does this work?   I cut back on blogging post days, I've been slacking on my blog visiting and commenting, NaNo is over and I've slowed down on my writing, and I'm still behind and haven't found time for reading of late.   I guess it's because it's winter and the days are shorter.  Yeah, that must be it!

            In any case I'm going to acknowledge some awards that were passed my way and, sadly, I'm not going to pass them on today.   I'll have to make up for this eventually.   So without any further discussion:

Here are some awards:
The Supernova Award is from Stephen Tremp.  Here why in his words:  For my hosts who participated in this blog tour, I give you all the SuperNova award. I thought this is appropriate because supernovas are exploding stars that become extremely luminous and can briefly outshine an entire galaxy. The can seed the nebulae with heavy elements and initiate new star and planet growth. I feel you have helped initiate new growth for me.

Thanks Stephen!  It was a great virtual book tour and you can call on me for your next one.  Pretty cool looking award, huh?

And Another "Go Away I'm Writing Award"

Rashelle at No. 2 Pencil, Stat! handed me another "Go Away I'm Writing Award".  She passed this my way in the middle of NaNo when I really needed it.    Now I need for somebody to give me "Hey, You Need to Keep Writing Award" in a mug filled up with highly caffeinated coffee.  

An Award from Poetess Yvonne:

          Everybody's favorite Lady of Verse, Yvonne from Welcome to My World of Poetry , sent me this "Super Star Blogger Award" all the way across the Atlantic.  This was a lovely Thanksgiving Day surprise and I do thank you for it, Yvonne.  Hope you're getting some warmer weather over there--we hear it's been cold...really cold.  Thank goodness you're there to warm our hearts.

And so:

          I think I got them all.  I hope so.  Have a great weekend and an highly productive week ahead.



  1. Hello Lee, thanks for a lovely post and the good words you said about me. The weather is still cold, hope Nashville weather isn't like this in Feb.

    Have a wonderful week-end;

  2. Congrats on the awards, Lee :) Don't forget that short days make for longer nights, and longer nights mean more time in precious bed :P

  3. Congrats on the awards! I think this time of year we go into auto-pilot mode. We aught to do this but...

    Have a good weekend my friend :)

    And now I will go away because you're writing!

  5. Congratulations on the super awards!

    I'm finding life more hectic, too. I hope this weekend to knock some things out of the way to make it at least run smoother....

    Have a great weekend!

  6. Congrats on the fantastic awards!

  7. Congratulations on all the awards, well deserved. I think the coming of winter is the reason for things to get so crazy and hectic...or at least that's what I'm blaming it on any way. Have a great weekend.

  8. Wow Lee that's fabulous. Well deserved awards. Thanks for inviting me to FB, I tried it and couldn't follow how to use it properly, got V frustrated and unsubscribed. I guess I just have my bimbo head on when FB looms I'm afraid. LOL! :O)
