So nice!

Look what Dreamybee over at Subliminal Intervention gave me:

Proximidade Award

"This blog invests and believes the PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships! These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes of self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."

That was nice, wasn't it? I'm not so sure I would be considered charming, as the award states, but hey, it's nice to get things like this. At least I know some people are reading and enjoying what I write.

So now the hard part. I always have trouble with giving these to other people. Not that others aren't deserving, it's just that I don't "know" that many people well enough to give this to, but I have a few. Oh, and it doesn't help that this comes from one of my regular reads, and that Dreamybee gave one to Florinda already. I will do my best.

Karen over at Outpost Mavarin: She keeps us busy with the weekend assignments and with great pictures, and stories of her dogs. Plus, I kind of owe her something for not having sent any weekend assignment ideas yet. I will! I swear!

Mr. Unfocused at The Unfocused Life: It's been fun reading about his novel work, and general life stories. I seriously don't know how he he gets everything done.

Cookie over at Shut up and Knit. I'm am not a knitter by any stretch of the imagination, but she always has something witty to say, and drops by here often.

Oh, I would give one to DC of Green Apples & Kool Aid, but she is on a blogging hiatus. Maybe this will bring her back!

I almost forgot Carly. Actually I didn't forget, as much as I forgot to write it in here. Carly runs the Photo shoot Monday's over at Ellipsis, she took over from Karen awhile ago, and has been keeping me busy with my camera.

So, thanks again, and go check out the other people.

Aren't you a sweetheart! Thank you, Mike.

I do find you and your point of view charming. Although, I think you should have mentioned your wife when handing out awards. I'm just sayin'...

Thanks for giving me the award anyway even if I'm not blogging anymore. lol

Jenn said...

Cookie, thanks for thinking of me, but I've been really bad about blogging lately so I don't think Mike even considers me to be a blogger anymore.

Mike, congrats on your award. You need to update your awards sidebar now. :)

Carly said...

Hi Mike :)

You are a very nice man, and I look forward to reading your blog, and your participation in the Monday Photo Shoot assignments. You make it nicer to be on the Internet. :) I mean that. You are very deserving of this award, and many others as well. Like I said, you make it a nicer place to be, and that in my book is everything. Good work. And thank for thinking of me, it means a lot. Have a wonderful weekend.

All my best, Carly

Florinda said...

Congrats on the award! And yes, you do owe Karen some Weekend Assignment ideas too :-).

I like Mr. Unfocused, and I've started reading his wife's (The Green-Eyed Siren) blog recently too.

Mike said...

Cookie: You're welcome. Even though you tried to get me in trouble. :)

DC: I thought maybe I could prod you a little. :)

Jenn: Thanks for understanding. :)

Carly: You're welcome, and thanks for the nice words.

Florinda: Thanks. Yes, I do read both of the Unfocused's blogs now, too. Kind of intersting to get two sides to most stories. :)

Thanks, Mike, for the nice words and plug and award and everything. You're the nice one!

Karen: you're welcome. And, you deserve it.
