Definitely too many irons in the fire! Where do I start, which ones are still hot, which ones only luke warm and which ones barely still glowing? There’s a flicker…better hold onto that thought! Well, to clarify quickly, all of my blogger friends are still HOT! Other things will just have to be left smoldering for a little while longer.
Oh, my, here I am extremely grateful and embarrassed at the same time. I am so grateful to all followers and visitors of catnipoflife and embarrassed in the lateness of the recognitions to follow. It is with deepest appreciation that the Shine On and Reality Blog awards are accepted! I do hope you will take the time and visit the amazing sites who bestowed these awards on catnip. Each offers a unique perspective on life that you really do not want to miss, as well as other website nominations you might want to visit!
*Shine On Award from Hot Rod Cowgirl! Hot Rod Cowgirl is all-American and will amaze you with her magnificent photography.
*Reality Blog Award from Fortyteen Candles! Fortyteen Candles writing is light but yet a powerful read with excellent imagery.
*Reality Blog Award from The Blazing Trail! The Blazing Trail blazes with words to enlighten, spur and strengthen!
*Reality Blog Award from The London Flower Lover! The London Flower Lover is for anyone with a love of flowers and great life stories!
*Reality Blog Award from Raani York! Raani York jabs and stabs celebrities with her quick wit and Jake offers his advice in his cat diary!
With every award comes RULES! The rules for receiving each of these awards are basically the same. So, here are the rules to apply to both:
1.) Show appreciation of the blogger who nominated you and link back to them in your post. DONE!
2.) Add the award logo to your blog. DONE!
3.) Share 7 things about yourself. SEE BELOW!
3.) Nominate 5 – 10 or so bloggers you admire. SEE BELOW!
4.) Contact your chosen bloggers to let them know. CHECK YOUR BLOG! WATCH FOR A TWEET!
5.) Optional questions. (This one I will forego for now to make it easier on everyone!)

you bring color to my days of gray, and
with caring words you drive the blues away.”
