Dust Off Those Shelves!

Time to expand the trophy shelf! I'm trying to figure out how to make a new shelf, like some other bloggers I know. Maybe I'll have to ask them outright. :) But AsthmaGirl has given me an award! And it's so sweet! And I've promised to give it away to my bloggy friends! The only problem is not giving it away to half the internet, since I love you all so much!

Check it out:

Pretty, huh? And fun! Let's see ... who is just plain fun to read? Not in any particular order, here's a list:

Karen, at The Rocking Pony. We have so much in common! We both home schooled for forever. We both gave it up this last year. We both have dogs. Okay, that's probably where the similarities stop. But I love Karen and she's JUST PLAIN FUN TO READ.

Joan-Marie, at Mayberry Magpie, is a local buddy. Quite the writer, she's JUST

Jan, at Bold and Free, whose blog is Genius reading level and who gives things away on a regular basis - definitely JUST PLAIN FUN TO READ.

The Burgh Baby's Mom is hysterical all the time, even when ill. Check some of her older posts for the Toddler Helmet and the Worms from Hell. She is JUST PLAIN FUN TO READ.

OHmommy. What can I say? It took me months to realize that the OH was
capitalized because it stood for Ohio. Doh! Whether she's writing about the darling Fifi, or Lola and Jay, or even her charming parents, OHmommy is nothing less than classy, and always JUST PLAIN FUN TO READ.

Dlyn takes the most incredible pictures! And she was the first person to help th
e Bovines when they ran away from home. I love that she interviews her dog, Riley, even though it is a little weird to think that her dog talks to her. You know. Just sayin'. And she's JUST PLAIN FUN TO READ.

Straight Shooter is another local blogger and the first blogger ever to meet Fred and Bessie! She cracks me up. Just keeping up with her journey through her husband's kidney cancer kept me in stitches. Should I feel guilty about that? She is JUST PLAIN FUN TO READ.

Tanya the Art Butcher fascinates me. And she sent me the coolest kitchen linen
s! Here's a picture of them, though I seemed to have trouble holding Mr. Rebel still the day I took this:

Maybe I was drunk? I don't think so ... I don't think I've ever been drunk. Or taken pictures drunk. But I do know that I love these two linens. Thank you Tanya! Oh! Tanya! She's an artist extraordinare, dabbling in fabric and photos and lots of other things. Certainly JUST PLAIN FUN TO READ.

Coffee Bean, at The Righteous Buzz, shares a coffee addiction. And a blogging addiction. What fun! She's earthy, real, honest. JUST PLAIN FUN TO READ.

Oh my. I should probably stop now, though there are so many more of you who deserve this wonderful award. So please, turn and hand it to someone else?

Until I write again ...

Awwwww... thanks Flea!!! I'm gonna have to learn a new computer skill to get this on my blog! I'll try to do that later today. What a sweetie you are!

Your description cracked me up. For some reason I want to eat some granola and ... maybe stick my feet in the river after I meditate on a big rock. For now though... I'm on the run to Home Depot so I've gotta blow dry my hair and put on some lipstick!
