Is it Christmas?

First, I received a comment from A Blonde Blogger saying that she has nominated me for The Thinking Blogger award. I'm always appreciative of any awards! However, like a kid that wanted someone else's candy, I told her "thank you" and then pouted my lips and said "I'd rather be nominated for the Blogger's choice awards Hottest Mommy Blogger."
Hey, it could happen 30 years ago.

You know what she did. YUP! She nominated me.
Thank you Blonde Blogger!
Alright! Enough snickering in the balcony.

Shortly after that I received an Email from The Arkansas Songbird to let me know that
I was her 1000th commenter.
I get a prize!! It is a book and CD set from the Metropolitan Museum of Art which introduces children to classical music through great works of art. Can you picture me with my 7 grandchildren rockin' to that! She blogs at Quarter Notes . Aptly named as she is a vocal instructor at several schools. I'm just bubbling by now.

Then yesterday ----

There was a box from Plow and Hearth on the doorstep when I got home Wednesday evening from work. It was addressed to me. I haven't placed any Internet orders recently so I was very suspicious.
"Was this a Mothers Day gift from TH or the girls?" I wondered

I was alone and there wasn't anyone there to stop me from opening it. So, I did!

It is a Mini-Blossom Hummingbird feeder made from recycled glass.
Vicki at Catching Light sent it to me just because!!!

She knows how much I enjoy the hummingbirds and all the other birds that visit our backyard.

1 Part Sugar, 4 Parts Water.
I know the recipe very well.

If you walk out on to my patio in the morning and hear something humming -- it could be that little Caliope hummer checking out the fancy new dish.

Or ---maybe I'm warming up to sing along with my new CD and book that should be in the mailbox very soon.

Or---- it could be the Hottest Mama Blogger practicing her acceptance speech. Giggle.

Blogging awards?!

If there's one for "Most Boring" or "Least Intriguing" I meant get nominated for one of those...

But I'm not holding my breath.

Still, congrats. And I love the annotative strikethrough on the "30 years ago."

Nice touch.

Mine looks EXACTLY like that but on a stake. I'm heading to post about it now.

Matt said…

Mert said…
Congratulations! I always thought yuo were one hot momma! ;D

Thanks for the humming bird recipe, I was wondering if yu had to buy the premade stuff... that's why I haven't bought a feeder yet.
Susan in va said…
I saw that feeder at Karmyn's site, too! I love it - wouldn't mind having one myself ;)

I stopped by here on Monday to see your Fun Monday post, but one of the kids needed something and I forgot to come back and comment. I remember my first thought was "WOW!" What a gorgeous lady you are, Pamela! I love the hair - my mom had the same style at one point except shorter. Women looked so much classier then (1967?).
Whippersnapper said…
Well, I'm off to vote for you, of course, you sexy hot mama, you. (People are very ageist. You can be hot at any time in your life, it's all about the attitude!)

Congrat's on you winnings... what a nice thought dancing with your grandchildren...
ablondeblogger said…
Go buy a lottery ticket, Pamela! Maybe your good luck will rub off on it!

I told Karmyn just now that I was looking at your blogs at the same time and you all confused me when I saw the same deal about the package arriving, wondering who it was from, and it being a bird feeder.

I LOVE birds, too, and since I can't put my birdfeeder up anymore (I posted about that on Karmyn's site), I'll have to live vicariously through your pictures. :)

There is a really funny cardinal near us, though...there's this one lane, dirt bridge that we cross over and if you're waiting for a car from the other side to cross, the bird will hop onto your side mirror and ride across the bridge with you.

I had read about it in our homeowner's newsletter and didn't believe it, and then bam...there it was on my side mirror! LOL
Biker Betty said…
Okay Pamela, hop on my bike and I'll take you to Vegas!!! What a wonderful day you had. I just entered a contest for a Harley. Think I will win? I won the Ipod last summer and figure it's time for a Harley this summer, LOL.
Whippersnapper said…
Well, I TRIED to vote for you but I couldn't find you... help!
Gattina said…
Apparently luck stroke you too ! I never ever winned something in my life and here lately I've got the 1st price for my hat at the Crazy hat parade of the Cyber Cruise and then also the Thinking Blog besides an Oscar (he, he) for writing. That's a start isn't it ?
ChrisB said…
You will be able to spend many happy hours watching the birds -what a lovely excuse not to 'dust'
