That's what friends are for




Is this not a lovely award? Blogging friend Robyn at Putting Pen to Paper bestowed it upon me. Yes, bestowed upon, is the proper language for this. It's so enchanting I feel like I've been given visiting rights to Faerie.


Thanks, Robyn!


And something so pretty ought to be passed along, as well. So I offer it--with no binding agreement to any fairy--to Terresa, Shelley and Natalie, all of whom are lovely visitors and exquisite bloggers of very different styles and subjects. Drop in, enjoy their sites.
And if you haven't, ahem, noticed my sidebar, I'm kicking it on NaNo. As of this moment, 41,379 words in 23 days. And I didn't make any bargain with the fairies. At least, not that I recall.

Congrats on the award :) Lovely for sure :))

Linda Kage said...

Go, Tricia. Congrats on the award (it is the most beautiful blogging award I've seen) AND on your NaNo progress.

I'm with Donna, watch out for those Fairies, I hear they're tricky critters.

Corey Schwartz said...

Wow! You're a NaNo goddess!!! Good for you!

Tricia J. O'Brien said...

Natalie: Your welcome and thanks, too. Love that word patoot. :-D

Donna: Absolutely won't ever underestimate the magic. :)

Shelley: I'm pleased to have welcomed you home with a smile. And thanks!

Thanks, Tabitha, I hope things are getting better for your friend.

Linda: Ha! I have a little sign on my desk that reads: Don't piss off the fairies. And, thank you!

Corey: Oh my, a NaNo goddess. You shouldn't give me such ideas. Next thing you know I'll put on a tiara so I can type faster. ;)

Sharon Mayhew said...

Wow, you are almost there! Congrats! So we know what you will be doing in December.

Your loyalty award is lovely. The picture and the concept. Congratulations on that too.

Sarah said...

Congrats on the award! You've written up a NaNo storm. I am so proud! Good luck with the last week. :)

Karen Amanda Hooper said...

Congrats! On NaNo and the award :)

Terresa said...

*Robyn's chin drops to the floor* How many words??

YOU GO GIRL! I'm thinking you have this nano thing in the proverbial bag. I love that word. Proverbial. I use it every chance I get. Same with PSHAW. My two second favorite words. First? Published! Haven't gotten to use that one yet, but some day...

I seem to have gotten off track here. :) Congrats on the word count. You are gonna do this. YAY!

Tricia J. O'Brien said...

Welcome, Sharon! And yes, December is mapped out for moi. But in a good way.

Sarah: Thanks, I'm trying not to be superstitious. Just take a day at a time, knowing Thursday is zero count.

Karen: Hi. You, too. You're going strong. I'm very excited about our projects.

Robyn: Get your chin off the floor! Like I said to Sarah, I don't want to get cocky before I cross the finish line, but it feels probable for sure. Love 'pshaw,' sounds like what it means.

Tricia J. O'Brien said...

Oops, how did I miss the lovely Terresa? You're most welcome, and thanks, I'm down. ;)

Stephanie Thornton said...

Gorgeous award! And I think you deserve a treat for your NaNo awesomeness- I'm impressed!

Tricia J. O'Brien said...

Hi Stephanie: It's so nice to have you here. A treat? What a great idea. I'm sure I'll buy one of NaNo's winner shirts, but you're making me think I should do more. Maybe I'll do something I haven't in awhile, like drive to the mountains or desert. A change of the landscape...you've got me thinking.

Robyn Campbell said...

Hey, I love pecan pie too. Usually if something has the word PIE after it, I want it. :) Have a fantastic day.

Lisa and Laura said...

Congrats on the award Tricia! And way to go on NaNo! You're so close! Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Tricia J. O'Brien said...

Robyn: :-D

LiLa: Thanks! Happy day to you, too!
