Hot Rod Cowgirl Nominated For The 2013 Blog of the Year Award!
Blog Of The Year 2013…Wowzers! Minnie Mouse Of The House says Meowzers!
Ellie says Bowzers! Look at her jump for joy!
Melody, Buck, Annie, Pat, Tucker and Dasher are excited as they have enjoyed entertaining you and keeping me busy blogging:)
It seems only a few days ago that I accepted this awesome nomination the end of 2012…and where did the last year go?
And Wowowow! I’m excited to receive a nomination for the 2013 Blog of the Year Award from Sharla at http://catnipoflife.wordpress.com/
Sharla opens Catnipoflife with a line of wisdom that is so very true!
“Observe life at its best, listen to life’s songs, embrace life’s bounties, breathe the breath of life and savor life to its fullest.”
Catnipoflife is about the school of life…the life we live and the lives lived around us…times of hard knocks and times of joy…life is good stuff and full of blessings to be thankful for each day. Sharla shares the lives we lead through her gift of poetry and photography.
As she shares her poetic words on her blogs and in her books, she encourages other bloggers by sharing their photos with her poetry on her blogs.
I was thrilled when I heard from her last month in regards to using my photos of wheat harvest with her poetic words on both of her blogs on Nov. 20th called “Amber Waves Of Grain.
She honors the American Farmers and our beloved United States of America, with her poetic words full of history and heritage. Read both her posts called Amber Waves Of Grain…click links below:)
Take a look and enjoy…
As we hop over to Sharla’s second blog “Awakenings”
She opens her blog with the profound sentence below…
“Life IS history in the making. Every word we say, everything we do becomes history the moment its said or done. Life void of memories leaves nothing but emptiness. For those who might consider history boring, think again: It is who we are, what we do and why we are here. We are certainly individuals in our thoughts and deeds but we all germinated from seeds planted long, long ago.”
I love Sharla’s opening words as it echos the life we live in our 100 year old family home on our ranch here in Juniper. Lots of memories and family history that is full of true grit and determination. I am who I am today because of my parents and my grandparents, who I never knew face to face…but I knew them through my parents and their love and respect for the generations that went before them…it gave me a deep faith of God…believing that no matter what we will never give up…we gotta keep on a going.
Everyday that we live, and every word we speak becomes our history…the days of our lives become our heritage…our story and traditions…and why we are here is a piece of the puzzle of our life, our history and our heritage.

6) And as a winner of the award – please add a link back to the blog that presented you with the award – and then proudly display the award on your blog … and start collecting stars…
I am humbled and honored that Sharla would nominate Hot Rod Cowgirl…I am excited to now pass on this award to my peers and friends:)
Drum roll please…
CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL!
Yes – that’s right – there are stars to collect!
Unlike other awards which you can only add to your blog once – this award is different!
When you begin you will receive the ‘1 star’ award – and every time you are given the award by another blog – you can add another star!
There are a total of 6 stars to collect.
Which means that you can check out your favorite blogs – and even if they have already been given the award by someone else – you can still bestow it on them again and help them to reach the maximum 6 stars! You can either ‘swap’ your badge for the next one each time you are given the award – or even proudly display all six badges if you are lucky enough to be presented with the award six times!
Each of you carries your own special talents and words of wisdom. Thank you for your inspiration, which always seems to arrive when needed. And do not pay any attention to the order the names are presented, God bless you all!
Congratulations, and here is your first star (may be your second, could even be your third) but it is the first from me!
I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas and I wish you a Happy New Year! Minnie says it is time to “Boot Scoot Boogie” down here…yippee yeeee-haw! She was practicing her moves while getting a full back itch too!
Thank you Sharla for presenting me with this nomination! Be sure to check out Sharla’s blogs at either link below!
