Clearing the Decks

I tinker around with this blog on a regular basis and try to keep it looking fresh for my visitor friends. I have decided that my sidebar is getting way too long. Marty agrees with me on this too. He would dearly love to have less to aimlessly watch, LOL. Every now and then, I think about changing to a wider Blogger format. But I am scared to possibly mess this web site up big time and cause myself a lot of work.

In the meantime, I have decided to help clear the decks on my sidebar by taking off all of last year’s blogging awards. I have gotten behind on passing some of them on too. Yes, I am a delinquent blogger, LOL. So I am starting fresh with 2009. Onward!

The Lemonade Award
My good friend Kay from Peddlin' Treasures gave me The Lemonade Award last week. This award is for blogs that show great attitude and gratitude. Thank you, Miz Kay!

Upon receiving The Lemonade Award, you pass it on to other bloggers who you think show great attitude and gratitude. Here are the rules:

1. Put the logo on your blog or post.
2. Nominate at least 10 blogs which show great attitude and gratitude.
3. Link to your nominees within your post.
4. Let them know that they have received this award by commenting on their blog.
5. Share the love and link to this post and to the person from whom you received your award.

I’m going to take a shortcut on this one and offer it to everyone who is listed on my sidebar and reads this post. I think all my blogging friends rock!


  1. Your blog Always looks beautiful! Happy blog cleaning sweetie!! Congratulations on the Award!!hughugs

  2. That award is great!
    I love the look of your blog too.
    Love and hugs Tabitha XXXX

  3. I am always trying to clean up my blog too. I think I have just right, and then I change it. I guess that is the fun of having your own personal place, lol. I enjoy your blog, and love the way it makes me feel!!!!! have a great another year of getting awards and filling up that sidebar once more!!!!

  4. Yer blog is looking very nice indeed! Uncluttered and welcoming! But if you ever try to get rid of Marty...the fur will fly! I love Mr. Long Ears.

  5. Thanks, everyone! I like to keep things tidy!

    And not to worry about Marty! He's a permanent fixture here, LOL.

  6. I love your new blog look - that background is as cute as it can be!
    Loved your photo tag, too. What a view! Truly magnificent (sp?). And getting rid of all your old TV's and computers and scanner...very well done. I don't know what it is, but I find myself becoming more and more aware of our environmental impact these days. Bottled water has become a major pet peeve of mine! My best friend is hooked on it. Sure wish I'd bought her a water filter system for Christmas instead of a fancy ol' grilling pan. :)


  7. Don't you wish cleaning house was as simple as selecting the "Remove" button? Your blog looks great...as always!

    Happy days ~ and congratulations on the award, it's a cute one!

  8. You rock too and so does your blog!


Marty, here! Donna loves comments, and I faithfully pass them on to her. Thank you so much for visiting!
