Lemonade stand award

When life gives you lemons, make a little lemonade.

Squirrel Queen
over at the Road to Here has so very kindly awarded me with The Lemonade Stand Award a few weeks ago. It has taken me some time to be able to pass it on. There are so many blogs out there that have great, sunny, positive attitudes, here are a few of them that bring a bit of sunshine into my day. Some of these blogs may already have been awarded a Lemonade Stand Award, but I don't think anyone's going to be sad to get more lemonade! Happy reading!

The basic guidelines are:
1) Put the award logo on your blog.
2) Nominate at least 10 bloggers (more or less, whatever number is good for you), that have a positive attitude.
3) Be sure to list and link your nominees within your post.
4) Let them know they have received this award by leaving a comment on their blog.

I'm passing it on to five people, I have some more award-happiness to spread around so check back soon!

The Sunflower Ranch: always something up to make you smile

Life on a Bison Farm
: the latest post of their three kittens totally cheered me up on a rainy, yucky day when I was stuck at work.

My Weather Vane: Rae always has something up to make me giggle, or stop and think. Both are good. She's also the nicest person I know that I've never met :)

Gleeful: I haven't been following very long. But, the subtitle to the blog is "An almost daily diary of simple joy". That says it all.

Inside Jade: A new young blogger, writes about the trials of teenage-hood. Yet, with all the insanity a teenager goes through she stays pretty upbeat, which is amazing.

Congratulations and enjoy!

  2. Thank you so much for the nice compliment and the award. It means a lot to me that you feel that way.

    I have been sitting here watching the weather radar with a red line of severe storms approaching me and decided to check my blog and found this nice surprise. Thanks my good friend.

  3. No one can ever have too much lemonade, especially this time of the year. But do you have summer yet? It is finally warming up here.

    Have a wonderful weekend,

  4. Hello there! Mmmmmm, lemonade! Thank you so much for the award. I'm usually a bit hopeless at passing these things on, but I'll give it a shot.

    Will pop back later to have a good look around your blog too (should now be doing some work!)

  5. Oh, and check out the other blogs too...

  6. Sunflower: you're welcome! you had me hooked on your blog with that posting about hummingbirds...a happy bird indeed.

    Rae: i hope your weather was exciting! our "severe" forecast didn't come to much, just mist, rain and more mist, yuck.

    SQ: thanks again for giving this to me in the first place!

    Frisky Librarian: it took me almost two months to pass this on, no worries if you never get to it, it's a lot of work to put it together I know :) Enjoy some new reading!
