I Smell Roses

This is what my mornings look like.
Scary, I know. You get used to it after a while.
Good day, world of the blog variety! I woke up this morning, as I usually do, and thought to myself, "I sure hope I don't get hit by a car today." And what do you know, I didn't! Instead, I found a notification in my email stating that this little blog had won another award! That's practically the opposite of getting hit by a car in my opinion.

So, with all of that in mind, I've determined that although I may have a test on Shakespeare's tragedies today that I haven't studied nearly enough for, a writing workshop to teach this evening, and a zombie-filled event to attend that will make me miss watching a new episode of Psych tonight, today is going to be a good day.

Couple all of that with the fact that the weather has finally become less hot and humid and more fall-like, and you have one happy girl with a cup of hot coffee in her hand.

As for the award, it is called One Lovely Blog Award, and the wonderful Eve over at Clueless Eve has so graciously awarded it to me. How nice of her. The award is lovely in its own right, I think. I just love pretty things, especially when they're given to me. Even more so when they're edible, but alas, this one is not. That's okay, I can deal.
Now, there are some conditions applying to the awardee of this award (what a mouthful) and here they are:
1. Thank and link to the person awarding the award to the awardee. (I take it back, this is a mouthful.)
2. Choose fifteen other blogs that you've recently discovered to share in the loveliness of the award. Spectacular.

Well, I've already linked to Eve earlier in the post, so all I have left is to thank her. (I've already done it in a comment on her blog.)
"THANK YOU, EVE! You contributed to making my day wonderful!"

All of that was easy, but here comes the difficult part: choosing the other recipients. I hate making decisions almost as much as I hate the idea of being hit by a car or a bus. But I have to make some choices this morning, so here they are:

1. Colin D. Smith
2. Sioux's Page (which I just found this morning due to the sharing of the previous award, see this post)
3. Daily Dodo
4. Fantasy Nibbles
5. StupidGirl over at generationwhynot (she's not really stupid, just funny)
6. TeenShiver
7. K.M. Weiland over at Word Play: Helping Writers Become Authors
8. Write Escape
9. Write-or-Die
10. Suspense Author Jeremy Bates
11. Mireyah Wolfe
12. Donna's Book Pub
13. DAILY DRAMA OF AN ASPIRING WRITER (yes, she uses all caps)
14. Bookworm Castle (found this blog this morning thanks to the Halloween Hop going on over at Jeremy Bate's blog)
15. A Daft Scots Lass, a.k.a. Gillian Hefer

There you go! All done and it's only taken me a whole hour to do it! Now I just gotta go back to all of those blogs and tell them that I gave them a rosy award...yay.

Until next time...have a great day!

  1. Wow! An award? For me?! I'm honored! Thanks Bailey! It will sit nicely on my new award shelf (aka, the Awards page on my blog). I have way more than 15 blogs on my RSS so this is going to be tough. And I thought the day was going as well as it could--who knew it could get better?

    Now all I need is for J.K. Rowling to comment on my blog telling me what an awesome writer I am, and for 20 agents to call me up saying they read my query letter online and want to sign me up, and I think that will make for a perfect day. :D OK, I'd settle for one agent... and an email asking for a full would do. And I've had a load of great comments already on my blog, so I'm good. :)

  2. Thank you so much, Bailey! I appreciate the honor very much. :D

  3. Well, that was a little bit of lovely to open my eyes to this morning! And I had a GREAT dream last night, so off to a good start today!!

    Thank you Bailey, and thank you for your lovely comments on Mother Write. They stand out as being incredibly generous, kind and simply lovely!
    Speaks, I would imagine, of the kind of person you must be!
    Have a great day, and thank you very much! : )

  4. Thanks so much for this award and for the follow too... I've always coveted this one. I'll link through to you and do the hand outs this evening - you are an angel

  7. Most welcome to all of you! I just love giving stuff away to people I like! :D

  8. Thank you so much for the award. Sorry I am getting back to you so late. I am truly honored.
