a happy silver lining

Jen Daiker at unedited gave me the Happy Award. i've seen this around the blogging world for a while now and i'm honored to receive it. now i'm supposed to list 10 things that make me happy and then pass it on to 10 bloggers.

1. walking along the seashore (which i hardly ever get to do since i live in Arizona)
2. blogging, reading blogs, and facebooking
3. writing
4. talking with friends over coffee or on the phone (instant messaging isn't nearly as satisfying, but it does beat having long distance charges)
5. reading
6. doing something with my kids
7. eating around the dinner table (which hardly ever happens-- not that we don't eat, but we usually don't eat around the table. i hear some of my friends gasping right now.)
8. being with my husband
9. horses
10. did i mention writing already?

now for the 10 bloggers (and since this award is circulating like crazy, some of these bloggers may already have it). let's see, there's... and then i can give it to...

darn! i'm so bad at following rules. if you see this post, go ahead and take the award. you all make me happy in one way or another. if you're new here, you can find the blogs i follow on my sidebar. they're all great.

then Christine Danek at Christine's Journey gave me the Silver Lining Award because she finds my blog to be uplifting, which is encouraging since i'm not always sure that what i have to say is uplifting.

again, i find the blogs i follow to be uplifting, so if you don't have this award yet, here's your chance.

Your 10 things also make me happy. To horses I'd add dogs.

All of a sudden I'm reading about all these blog awards popping up from different people. My happy thought: Uninterrupted quiet time buried under my manscript...lol.

Congrats on the awards!

I hear you're getting lots of rain down there. So sad I missed it. :( We're getting lots of snow, but it's just not the same.
