Awards are nice to receive.
Everyone would like an award.
I made an award to give out myself.

But, I've been thinking,
who am I to say who should get one,
over anyone else.

Everyone has something of beauty
that they create and share on their blogs,
everyone deserves an award.

So, my award is given freely to all.
No strings attached.
It is yours for the taking.

Thank you for visiting my blog,
and for sharing the beauty
you create in your lives.

Thanks for stopping by and keeping me company while Mr. Plant Lady is away.

I have finished the HUGE stack of clean laundry on the sofa and have put it away. The dishes are awaiting me next. From therem the floors will be vacuumed and mopped.
A woman's work is never done, is it?

Check back with me later. I want to post a photo of my dad's Camellia japonica that is blooming now. That is if the heavy frost and cold temperatures hasn't bothered it. If you love flowers, I'm sure you will like this one. Simply beautiful!

God is so good to give us so much beauty to behold, isn't he?

It's always a pleasure to visit.

You are so right about a woman's work never being done. There is always something else to do. I'm learning that having a mindful, thankful additude makes the doing of our homecaring and other projects a joy instead of a drudge.

I have found much inspiration by reading blogs also and keep finding more to read with each new blog visited.

I wish we could grow Camellias down here but we are in tropical zone 10, too hot and humid for a lot of things I'd love to grow.

We are blessed with all the beauty that surrounds us each day, we just need to stop and take a look around.

Thanks again for visiting. I'll be checking back with you too.
