Awards Jan 15

          Sorry for the hastily drafted post, but I wanted to acknowledge a couple of awards that came my way over the past month or so.  There is at least one more that I have not yet run across in my e-mails and I will be sure to recognize any others in an upcoming awards post.

First, from Stephen Tremp at Breakthrough Blogs I've received the Meat and Potatoes Award.  Almost looks as good as the dinner I had at Longhorn Steakhouse.  Thanks Stephen--I'm always up for a good steak.

Meat and Potatoes Award from Stephen Tremp

"You Inspire Me Award" from Yvonne Lewis
The ever-inspiring Yvonne from Welcome to My World of Poetry passed me this You Inspire Me Award.
Isn't it great how much we all inspire and support one another in our blog community.  Thank you Yvonne for another award.

           And that does it for this Saturday.   Thank you all for reading and be watching for some big news that will be coming soon.

  6. Congrats on your awards! I'm a little behind on my blog reading and commenting- so perhaps I've missed it- but are you having the A to Z challenge again in April? I need some motivation and inspiration!! Maybe it's this durn cabin fever!

  10. Congrats Arlee! Sorry I've been missing, lazy blogger syndrome! Love Di ♥

  11. I'm looking forward to that great news! Hope it comcerns your book. I love the premise! I'll be checking back in for an update.

  12. My thanks to all who visited today to offer their good wishes.
    Dezmond -- I guess the "meat and potatos award" has to do with blog content. It comes from the idiomatic expression which means something of substance or solid food.
    Rae and any others who want to know about the Blogging From A to Z April Challenge--Yes I'm doing it again and that is what the big news has to do with. I'll explain more in an upcoming post.
    Stephen -- I wish the big news had something to do with a book, but hopefully that will come later.

  13. That's great Lee! Congratulations!

    P.S. That steak looks awesome! :-D

  14. Congratulations on the awards! That steak and potatoes one is making me hungry:P

  15. Thanks to all of you! Sounds like we have some steak fans out there. I am really starting to crave steak.
