Belatedly ... I want to thank Tamy of 3 Sides of Crazy for this
Triple Award! I thought I'd shared it already but this morning I discovered it in my drafts folder where it's been since the 18th of January. Perhaps my confusion was caused by the fact that Forgetfulone shared this Triple Award with Small Reflections where I did share it on January 19th. This is clearly another sign that I'm just too busy to manage everything at the moment, but
once the Australian Open ends next weekend ... perhaps I'll find more 'balance' again.

Triple Award. Sisterhood, Lemonade & Best Friend

About this award, Tamy wrote the following:
I was super delighted to receive this award from Laane over at Crocodile Soup for the Soul who bestowed this wonderful triple award on me. This truly made my long hard day better! I'm so truly honored that she thought my blog worthy of the award.
Here are the rules for the recipients:
1. Put the logo on your blog or post.
2. Nominate at least 10 blogs which show great Attitude and/or Gratitude!
3. Be sure to 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 would like to pass this award to:
Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom
Barbara at Candy Hearts and Paper Flowers
Kiy at Rocking Chairs and a Tricycle
Jenjen at Tatertots and Jello
Diana at Forgetfulone
Misty Dawn at Misty's Words
Mimi at Screaming Mimi
Michelle at Scribbit
Janet at Fond of Snape
Storyteller at Sacred Ruminations
Since I've received and passed The Lemonade Award along on all 3 blogs already ... (click to see recipients at Happily Retired Gal, Small Reflections, and Sacred Ruminations) ... I hope that Tamy won't mind, but methinks I'm going to break the rulez and pass this along to all my regular readers of any of my blogs ... because I appreciate everyone's visits & comments immensely!

I got this award a few ago too. I did the same thing you did and broke the rules. It's fun to break the rules.

Have a terrific day. :)

I'm jealous -- you have roses in bloom. We're probably going to have to wait three more months.

Betty said...

Beautiful roses. Congratulations again on all three of your awards.

Your flowers are beautiful. They remind me there is life on the other side of snow. Thanks!

You have been getting rain, which is excellent. I viewed the large images and could almost smell these incredible roses. What a treat.

Love the roses! They are just beautiful.

Congratulations, Friend. :)

The roses are gorgeous and thank you so much for passing this sweet award on to me. I have an overdue award post in the works and I'll add it on and pass it along sometime this week :)

Barbara said...

Oooops sorry I realize you were just quoting Tamy... I'll be more careful reading in the future.
