Fun Stuff!

I have a bit of housekeeping to do on my blog. Not the drudgery stuff either! The fun stuff, that simply got overlooked because of the drudgery stuff that had to be done first. So today is the day for fun!

Over the past month I have been given two awards by my bloggy friends, Betty and Jen. And you all know that I *L♥VE* awards! They make me feel loved and special, so thank you very much ladies! And here the beautiful things are now!

Betty at Keeper of the Skies Wife gave me this fan award early in April

Thanks, Betty! You know I am your fan too!

And here are the rules:

1. Leave a comment or an email for your favorite blogger telling them that you are a fan of the site.

2. Feel free to copy and paste the award, or you can get the code at Sited and Blogged to present to your blog friend or post on your site when it is awarded to you.

3. When you receive more than one fan, put the number of fans you have received under the image.

4. The more fans you receive the better! So, what are you waiting for...tell someone you're a fan of all their blog...HAVE FUN!

And the second one was given to me by Jen at Creative and Curious Kids!

"The Let's be Friends" award stands for this: These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind of bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers.

This is always the hardest part! For the past couple of months I have needed friends to rally around me, and you all are the best! I've loved your comments to my posts; they have lifted my spirits! (BTW - to those of you I give the friendship award to, will you also please take the Fan Award too, and save me some time of me telling you all that I'm your fan on your blogs? TIA!) And the awards go to:

Christy at Farm Dreams
Betty at Keeper of the Skies Wife
Joy at Joy in the Burbs
Tammy at Laugh, Live, Learn, Love
Marvelous Thing at Marvelous Pigs in Satin
Stephanie at Ordinary Life Magic
Becca at The Great Mediocre
Kate the Great at Dear Goodness
Randi at I have to say
and last, but not least, I give the award back to
Jen at Creative and Curious Kids!

Thanks to all of you! You are the best!


  1. How sweet. Thank you.
    You write a great blog and a I really enjoy reading it.


  2. Hi Melody, When I saw your name on my Blog, I took a deep breath. "Oh no!!!" I thought my daughter found my Blog. You see, none of my family knows I have one. Anyway, thanx for visiting and I have just spent the good part of an hour reading "Merrie Melody." Can I be a follower??

  3. You're so nice! Awww... I have warm fuzzies. Thank you!

    I hope your new doc (and the nurses!) are better than the old place. Good luck with all the insanity - hang in there! We're praying for you all. ;)

    Love you!

  4. Oh, this is so nice Melody. What a lovely pick-me-up to see this on your blog. Thank you so much.

  5. Oh, this is so nice Melody. What a lovely pick-me-up to see this on your blog. Thank you so much.
