June... it's time for commencement exercises and awards ceremonies. Don't you just love sitting through hours of speeches and presentations? Here's what I've figured out...they are much more enjoyable for those who are getting an award...
...unless of course, you are the Grammy!
Well, I'm inviting you to a short and sweet award ceremony today. I stopped by Vee's blog yesterday, only to discover she had honoured me with an award. How special is that? Thanks so much, Vee. Now it is my pleasure to pass this award along to other bloggers who are an inspiration to me..who are artistic & creative...and since Vee already has included many of my picks on her list...and I wouldn't want to leave anyone out...you are all going home with an art award today! (Is this starting to sound a little like the non-competive sport days where we all get a 'participation' ribbon?) It has been my pleasure to visit so many wonderfully creative blogs and I've learned so much from all of you...so today you all take home a trophy!
And for all of you who have showed up for today's ceremony, I would like to pass along a bouquet of roses...not just any roses, but award winning, fragrant roses growing freely in my neighbourhood. Wild roses have to be the best! They are blooming profusely along the roads despite that we have had the coldest June on record since 1937...and plenty of rain to go with it. The fragrance of wild roses always take me back to my childhood...where they grew freely along the railroad tracks behind our home. So grab a bouquet...and drink in the scent.
Oh yes...and have a cup of coffee and a cinnamon twist before you leave. If you enjoy them...the recipe is posted right here!
Now that the awards ceremony is over and done with...go out and enjoy your day!
