Rockin' Girl Blogger

Gracie over at Echoes of Grace tagged me as a Rockin’ Girl Blogger. I can’t believe it either!!!!. Guess I’m a lot more cool than I thought. Thanks Gracie, I am soooo honored. Here’s what Gracie had to say about me:

Linda, of "This and That," is going through a rough time of it right now. But her spirit is strong and I know she'll persevere! Let her know we all look out for one another and let her know you'll be thinking about her in the days ahead and pop in and say "hi!" She recently found that which was lost and is delighted to show her daughter her baby photos, which she had never seen before! Linda is one of our Rockin' Girls!

Gracie, thank you for your kind words.

I must tell everyone here that tomorrow is Gracie's Birthday! She is turning 60!!!! Please stop by and wish her a Happy Birthday!!!

One thing I must learn, when given an award, don’t wait to make your nominations. Two of the girls I planned on nominating were given the award over the weekend. Here are my choices.

My first choice goes to Gattina over at Writers Cramp who lives in Belgium with hubby and their four cats. It is so much fun visiting Gattina and seeing what her felines are into that day. Gattina has a wonderful sense of humor that brighten my day each time I visit. She recently returned from a vacation to Turkey where she posted lots of wonderful pictures of her trip. You definitely need to read about her adventures when you stop by.

My next choice would have to be Renee at Renee's Ramblings. I think I found Renee through Friday’s Feast and have continued to enjoy visiting with her. She is always posting great recipes that are so yummy. She also has a recipe blog and a home schooling blog. Be sure to stop by and I’m sure you will want to visit Renee again and again.

Another blog I enjoy is Cozy ReaderJane is the wife of a Methodist minister which is probably what brought me back to her blog after my first visit since my brother was a minister. I love Jane’s editorial comments about the “rich and famous”. We share many of the same views on this topic. Jane is certainly a Rockin’ Blogger.

My next would be Annie of Hootin Annie . I met Annie when I joined Bloggers of 50. Even though I don’t know Annie well, I enjoying popping in from time to time, especially to see what she is doing with her blog designs.. She creates all her own templates. You will see how clever she is when you stop by. Right now her design is a tribute to the 4th of July which really rocks.

As I said earlier, two of my favorite ladies were already chosen, so I leave the 5th nomination to anyone who reads my blog. Simply grap the banner and add to your blog. Just leave me a note and I'll recogize you here. Have fun.

I just wanted to shut down my computer and wanted to slide in my beddybies when I saw your comment ! That's really a very nice Good Night gift for me !

I just found your blog over at Jane's comments and bookmarked it! We both thought Jane rocks and tagged her! We both tagged hootin'anni too!!! She had such kind words to say about both of us!!
I just read your blog about your lost pictures and oh my, how very sad. My kids' Dad left in 1979.
But taking the pictures. Grrrrr!
This had to be really hard on you.
