Two blogging friends have gifted me with awards in the past couple of days. I'm amazed... dazed... and totally honoured that they thought of me! I didn't want to let this go unacknowledged.
Kyddryn at Shade and Sweetwater gave me something called the Dardos Award. I can sure see why Kyddryn was given one of these; she's one of the most remarkable conversational and creative writers I've yet to come across! Well, she had the kindness of heart to pass a Dardos along to me, too. As best I can tell, this is an award for blogging self-expression, and besides, it looks mighty cool, doesn't it? Now I'm supposed to pass this along to 15 others, but I just went through a round of award giving with the Friends Award the other day, and I don't want to overload people. I'm going to hang onto it for a bit, and I'll pass it along whenever I spot someone that looks like they need one of these things.
Right about the same time, Kat at Poetikat's Invisible Keepsakes gifted me with a Superior Scribbler Award. Kat is, herself, most definitely a Superior Scribbler, with her unique eye on the world and an eloquent, often humorous, way of describing what's going on in poetic verse. I'm really touched that she passed the SS award along to me! I know I'm not following the rules... and all of you in my blogroll are deserving of this award. But I'm going to wait a bit, again, not wanting to overload people with awards.
Thanks, Kyddryn and Kat!
