Thank you, blessings, valentines, tags

I'm going to attempt to cover a lot of ground and sky in this post as work has been busier than usual. The days and nights and weekends are blending a bit but that's ok, I've also had slack time leading up to a busier time. I'm very lucky to be able to work from my computer at home but the trade off is when it's busy I tend to make up for slower time. I don't want to let too much time pass without thanking and mentioning some of my blogging friends. Yolanda who blogs at Perfectly Imperfect was so kind to pass on the Blessings Award to me in this post. I was very touched by Yolanda thinking of me. Her blog is so heart felt and I enjoy her posts and photography. Some of you may have noticed my earth hour banner which I am keeping up until after the 29th of March which will be an international earth hour. People are being asked to turn off their lights at 8 pm for an hour to call attention to global warming. You can click on the video and links I have at the top of my blog to learn more about it. I found out about earth hour on Yolanda's blog when she posted the video about the first earth hour which started in Sydney. I count Yolanda and all my blogging friends as blessings. I also want to mention the people I have gotten to know through the Melanoma Patients Information Page . That community was my first experience with getting to know people through the internet and I value the friends I've made through that group. I want to thank Hootin Anni for giving me a valentine in this post. I found Anni's blog through the photohunters and always enjoy her imaginative and interesting posts. Anni has a great sense of humor and a big heart which is a wonderful combination. Thank you so much for the sweet valentine, Anni. Next I want to mention my fear of landing in Mimi's Dungeon (she threatened dungeon time for procrastinators like me who ignored the Queen of the Memes) so if I totally disappear please come spring me. Seriously Mimi Writes is one of the bloggers who is a blessing and who I'm glad that I discovered, initially through her Blogblast for peace.
The reason I may land in her dungeon is back in January she tagged me for the Band Meme which looked like a lot of fun. Simple, easy, didn't require a lot of thought. Did I do it, noooooooooo, slacker that I am. I did want to mention Mimi and how much I enjoy her creative writing. She has a style all her own, which I like. Liz at A simple Life tagged me for New Years traditions. That was another one that should have been easy but again, just call me Ms. Procrastinator. I do want to apologize to Liz for not getting around to that and mention that I enjoy visiting her blog during the photohunt and weekend snapshot and at other times too.
I think this brings me to the last tag I haven't done yet, unless my brain has gone on vacation and my filing system is remiss. Sabine at Days of My Life in Gozo recently tagged me for a birth month tag or that's what I'll call it. Just in case I don't get to this one I did want to thank Sabine for thinking of me. She is another blogger I discovered through photohunters and I'm so glad I did. Her photography blows me away as does the beauty of Gozo where she lives. I also enjoy reading her posts. If I am not around as much it's either work or I've landed in Mimi's dungeon. I hope someone can break me out if I land in a dungeon. Cheers!

Hi Carver, I'm not very good at doing memes and posting awards either but this is a great round-up of them.
Don't work too hard.

Thanks JMB, I think I'm seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. Hopefully I can settle down to more normal hours shortly. Take care, Carver
