Okay I have been a bad bloggy friend in saying thank you for these wonderful awards I have been given the past few weeks and I feel bad because I really do appreciate them all but sometimes I get so busy I forget to post them and so it goes with these great awards. This first one is from Kat at Just a Beach Kat. Here are the rules of this award:
Characteristics for the Smile Award:
Must display a cheerful attitude. (not necessarily at all times--we are all human)
Must love one another
Must make mistakes
Must learn from others
Must be a positive contributor to blog world
Must love life

Okay that sounds like all of my bloggy friends so I am passing this wonderful award on to all of you. Thanks Kat for thinking that I am any of these things.
This next award is from Celeste at Lea Rea Rose. Thanks Celeste for this wonderful award. If you have never been to visit Celeste, please go over now and see her. She has a wonderful blog and she is so creative.
And this last award is from my Norwegian bloggy friend Lille Meg. I think you are the sweet one Lille Meg. Thanks so much and I am giving all of these great awards to all of my bloggy friends.
Now for some bloggy news. First hop on over to Donna's at Cottage Days and Journeys and enter her giveaway, it's a good one. And then hop on over to Brenda's Photo Challenge and sign up for the "YELLOW" challenge this week. Hey, I think I forgot to sign up. LOL I'll be right over. Do you know what's really cool about these challenges? I find myself looking at things I probably wouldn't give a second look at as I go through my day. Do you know how many things are yellow in this world? I didn't until I started looking around for the photo challenge. So even if you have never done a photo challenge before just sign up, it's always fun.
I've been walking alot at my beautiful park on the Ohio River lately in an effort to get my triglycerides down when I am tested again in two months. The doctor said that walking is the one the best ways to get it down. So here are some photos as I go about my morning walks. It feels like Fall every morning when I go for my walk. Our leaves are not as colorful as usual but this park is a wonderful place to walk and I am so grateful that it is just a few minutes from my home. That's it for me tonight, I am off to watch the debate and to also flip the channel to HGTV and watch Cindy from My Romantic Home on Rate My Space tonight. Have a good one!
