Friendship!



Thank you Stevie Wren from a little birdie told me so for this lovely friendship award! I've made so many friends, including Stevie, of course, by way of visiting your wonderful inventive and personality filled blogs! I noticed that among those I visit frequently, Stevie has awarded Nana Trish, Betsy and Willow! Congratulations ladies!It appears that we are to pass this award along, and I will do so! I would like to present the Perfect Blend of Friendship Award to:

Lavinia who is among the very, very first to visit Muse Swings and leave an encouraging comment.
Bibi and Shelly and Janeen who are among the very, very newest of friends

Aunt Jo who's friendships and family are always present in her blog
Camille who is a friend and a friend and a friend


And a Blog in Bloom for Willow!




I would also like to present a Blog in Bloom Award to Willow of Life at Willow Manor. Willow's blog just blooms with wonderful feasts of art, poetry, books, life and, of course food - some of the most delicious and divine (with recipes available). It is always a delight to walk along the tree lined path, dappled with sunlight, open the gate, and knock on the door at Willow Manor!

And a quick tropical storm update: Fay is up to something. She is strengthening over land and moving on her NNE path more slowly than expected. Although we expect very little weather from Fay here in Palm Harbor, she is taking her time with the southern counties. I don't think we have heard the last from her. My personal prediction is that she will move out over the Atlantic, gather her skirts in and make another grand entrance to Florida sometime in the next week.

Weather update : The weatherman must have read my blog! I checked the weather two minutes after noting my prediction and they have Fay doing exactly what I just said! Keep an eye on her - she's got her eye on Florida.

Thank you for the award and for visiting my blog today--hope you will continue to do so. Unfortunately I won't be able to check blogs frequently now; my husband had a stroke last Sunday and is in the hospital. Please send positive energy to Belgrade.

Bibi! I am so sorry to hear about your husband's illness! I will send positive energy and I will also pray for his recovery and for your own strength and well being! I'm sure all of our readers will do the same!

David said...

Cynthia, thanks for dropping by David's Digital Art. Willow has a way of brining people together. Hope that you're out of the path of the storm down there. David

MuseSwings said...

And thank you David for stopping by as well! We are pretty much out of all the storm activity. One of the feeder bands is passing by right now, so we are getting a good soaking. Wind has been minimal. Thanks!

Lavinia said...

Congratulations Muse-Swings! Nice to see you and your blog getting recognition you so richly deserve. Your blog is great!

I am trying to catch up here in blogland.....this summer has posed a real challenge to me to do this, as there is so much going on...

Thank you so much for the award! I shall post on my blog soon...

Good luck evading the clutches of witchy Fay!

MuseSwings said...

Thank you, Lavinia, and you are very welcome for your award! So far things are fine here - just waiting now to see what Fay plans to do next. Looks like she may make another grand entrance. Should have called her Loretta as in Loretta Young.

Congrats on your award! I pray you are doing well. I hope the hurricane stays far away from you. I have been in many of them and they can get scary. Have a great week! later, Trish

I haven't looked at the weather channel recently but I do hope you are safe and sound in Florida.

Sandy said...

Whoa, hope you don't get much from Fay...

I'll have to check out all those links (If I ever get some time)....

congrats to everybody.

Marie Reed said...

That cheater of a weatherman! Reading your blog for his prediction:)

Janeen said...

Congratulations on receiving the Friendship award! And your generousity for sharing it with me! Thank you! Thank you! Now are the instructions that I am to pass it along to a fellow blogger? Or do only you do that? I'll post it up today. We had a blast at the beach yesterday and I thought about you in Florida with Fay on it's way. I'll post the picks today! By the way, here's an ice cream coming your way! (smile)

MuseSwings said...

Stevie, Marie and Sandy! Thank you for visiting. Good thing you all wore your rain bonnets. Not much here at all from Fay. It was just breezy and cloudy and some - but not much rain. It looks as though she won't bother us much on the way back - we'll see!

Janeen! You are welcome! I saw that the others were passing the award along to 6 bloggers, so that is what I did, and you are welcome to do the same! Thank you for the ice cream!

MuseSwings said...

Trish! Thank you for coming by! All is well here! Haven't even gotten a decent amount of rain today.

Aunt Jo said...

Thank you for the award! You are very kind to think of me and my bloggie!!

MuseSwings said...

You are very welcome! Enjoy.
