Easing my way back & accepting blog awards

Good morning everyone! I am going to try & get back in the swing of things now. My husband is home from the hospital & doing much better. He will see the cardiologist Thursday for a stress test so I am hoping all turns out well. Thank you for all your kind comments. I love my blogging friends & feel very fortunate that you've all touched my life.
One of my favorite blogs EVER is, http://tweedles-georgie.blogspot.com/. This blog brings me so much joy...I LOVE Tweedles! Tweedles has passed on the Honest Scrap Award.
The rules go like this:
When accepting this auspicious award, you must write a post bragging about it, including the name of the misguided soul who thinks you deserve such acclaim, and link back to said person so everyone knows he or she is real. Choose a minimum of 7 blogs that you find brilliant in content or design. Or improvise by including bloggers who have no idea who you are because you don’t have 7 friends. Show the 7 random victims’ names and links and leave a harassing comment informing them that they were prized with “Honest Weblog.” Well, there’s no prize, but they can keep the nifty icon. List at least ten honest things about yourself. Then, pass it on!"

1) I believe in equal rights for all, regardless of color, sexual preference, religion etc.
2) I love sunrises & sunsets.
3) I love love love animals.
4) Large bodies of water scare me
5) Rude smokers irritate me
6) Rude people in general irritate me.
7) I love the smell of fresh cut grass
8) Still enjoy metal jammin rock n roll.
9) The smell of my jasmine blooming is wonderful.
10) I love the early early morning with a cup of coffee & the newspaper.
There you have it!
I will pass this one on & I want to make it clear that the recipients do NOT need to post this if they prefer not to. I understand that some would prefer not to get caught up in awards & I totally understand & respect that. My choices are:

1) http://creativesolace.blogspot.com/
2) http://kvcreativedesigns.blogspot.com/
3) http://vickiorion.blogspot.com/ 4) http://kristychristopherson.blogspot.com/
5) http://sharon-artfromtheheart.blogspot.com/ 6) http://thevintagemoth.blogspot.com/ 7) http://www.backgroundfairy.com/

Congrats to all & thank you again, Tweedles

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Hi Diane - you make my little tan face blush with you kind words.
You touch my little pug heart with happiness- so stick your face to the screen so I can give you pug kisses. You are soooo down to the earth (like me) except your taller. We can't wait for more paintings fromm you- but more than that- we want hubby to be all well- and getting better,
