A Very belated Thank you(s)!

by Michelle on February 8, 2009

As most of you know, we started a huge construction project June 22, 2006. By HUGE I mean every single room in our home was gutted, plus we added a 2-story addition w/extra deep basement and even tore off the entire roof to change the pitch. And not only the interior was completely renovated, we also tore off all the exterior brick, stone and siding. Added an old-fashioned wrap-around porch, new doors and windows including 3 bays, 5 gables, new exterior room and miscellaneous trim and do-dads! WHEW…just thinking about it makes my head hurt.

During the last 6 months of our project and knowing I could not face another winter under construction, I buckled down on all my subcontractor’s to “get the job done” so we could move back into our home! Consequently beginning in August my blog bogged down to 1-2 posts a month. Thankfully we officially finished the house in the middle of Nov 2008. I am still busy opening boxes and hanging pictures but I am back to blogging and I did miss it so much!!

I received some awards during my boggy period and feel guilty that my friends offered me awards and I never publicly thanked them. So sorry……..

First a BBF (Blogging Friends Forever) from Teresa who taught me just a “little” bit about chocolate. Please visit Teresa’s blogs Mexican American Border Cooking and Mexican Chocolate Lore and More.

Next is a Brilliante Weblog Award from sweet Natashya of Living in the Kitchen with Puppies. Natashya not only maintains an excellent blog of her own but co-founded Tyler Florence Fridays, a wonderful free-wheeling weekly event complete with a Friday Blog Roll.

Thank you both so much and again my apologies for being so tardy!!

I am passing on the BBF Award to 3 of my blogging buddies.

Lucy of Sweets, Savories, Etc.. Lucy is my very good friend and cooking buddy. What would I do without you!

Kayte of Grandmas Kitchen Table. What a sweetie and we share a love of history and sports too!

Katie of KatieCakes. Katie lives in England and bakes…oh the cupcakes..oh the bundt cakes..oh the cookies! A girl after my own heart or sweet tooth!

The Brilliante Weblog Award goes to:

Lisa of My Own Sweet Thyme. Don’t miss Lisa’s blog! Her photography and fabulous memory-filled posts are so heartwarming. I love reading Lisa’s blog.

Melissa of From Laptop to Stovetop. Melissa is a sister Whisker and is so enthusiastic, she definitely gets me up for our Weekly Whisk Wednesdays lesson!

Maggie of Dog Hill Kitchen. Maggie is now a fellow-constructionite and since my memories are all too fresh, I can totally sympathize with her. But her new kitchen looks great so far!

    Thank you Michelle!! I enjoy our chats over the phone or the emails where we converse about our trials & mishaps in our cooking/baking adventures (thank goodness not many of them are flops) Thank you once again you are my ((((((BBF)))))) !!!

    Oh yes the flops and we’ve had some flops. But usually it’s the fault of the recipe not the cooks!I’m thinking of the Boston Cream Pie and that coffeecake thingy I made. YUCK!Michelle

    Oh, you are so sweet, Michelle! Thank you for thinking of me…what an honor! Now, I wish I could say I knew what to do or how to do these award things, but I don’t…LOL…I can’t even manage to get the TWD and Whisk little thingies on my blog…not a clue! So, I will just have to treasure your little award in my heart and thank you most sincerely for such an honor! I am so happy you are back in control of your house!
