The most lovely and charming Odat of Odat Mumbles has given me a Recommended Read award!

Thank you so much, Odat! You and I have been blog buddies for a very long time, and your sense of fun never fails to delight me. I visit your blog like a child going to the playground, but underneath all the laughs you provide is a strong current of helping and caring for others.

You're the best!

Here is the new award. It will go perfectly with my favorite silver jewelry.

Now I am to give it to Only Two other blogs. This will not be easy as I strongly recommend every one on my list, and others, too, that I haven't gotten around to adding yet.

Meno at Meno's Blog is a great source of wisdom and compassion with a strong overlay of quirky commentary on life, whose many ironies are never lost on her. She seems like a woman who can do anything, although she would probably deny it.

Josie at All In Good Time is an independent spirit whose life has required that she be strong. She writes beautifully about life in Vancouver, art and sometimes shares a real treasure about her childhood. She is also a most talented artist.

I highly recommend these two bloggers who always strike the right chord and please me so much.

Read their words and enjoy!

You are an absolute joy to read and to know, and I do wholeheartedly recommend your blog to one and all. It is always wonderful and also beautiful to behold.

Felicitous felicitations to you.

Thank you, sir. I simply adore praise from you.


They are both incredibly good reads.


And it's silver, too. I like silver. Also platinum.


Both new to you, I know. :) I actually found Meno through your blog, and I don't remember how I happened upon Josie. I've been reading them both for so long.


Gratitudinous gratitude to you.

Congratulations on the award!

Jocelyn said...

This award is more meaningful than some, I daresay. And, seriously, you are one of my "Okay, you only get five blogs to keep reading for the rest of your life" blogs.

Yes, you're that good.

Thank you so much. I love this one, and feel very lucky that Odat passed it on to me.


Now you're going to make me cry. I am touched and incredibly flattered because your writing always inspires me.

Sarge Charlie said...

Hi, I jumped over from Odat's, if she said read, then I must read.

furiousBall said...

Nice, good for you. I need to check out those two blogs too.

heartinsanfrancisco said...


Thank you so much.


I'm still excited that you're back. I'll be over there soon.

Sweet Pea,

I'm sure she'd like to know that. Your presence always adds so much.


Hearty thanks!


I am always surprised by how many of these things are out there.

They are such fun to get and even more fun to pass on.


Odat is very persuasive, one of the many reasons we all love her so.

Thank you for coming by.


They're both wonderful. I'm sure you'll enjoy them.

This will teach me to go away for a few days.

A well deserved award for you. I don't remember how long i have been reading here, but you have become a required part of my day.

Thank you so much. I really appreciate that you like what i write and that you would recommend it to others. It's kind of humbling to think that someone who writes as well as you do would like my little ramblings. Thank you again.

heartinsanfrancisco said...


Well, great. We have our own mutual admiration society. Those are the best. I love what you write.

How were the feather beds?

Odat said...

Good choices...and thanks again for your kind words...geeze I have a lot to catch up on here...ok going to continue reading!

heartinsanfrancisco said...


Thank YOU again for choosing me.

I tend to play catch up, too, and read several posts at a time, like eating a whole wedding cake by myself.
