A Haven for Vee

Daily Dose

Just before or was it just after my meltdown, Sandi of Holding Patterns, tucked me in to her list of nominations for "The Daily Dose" award. Now I know what it means to be a blog addict so to myself be on someone's list of a daily dose is pretty incredible. Poor Sandi, though, her pickings here got pretty skimpy for the next bit and they're about to get skimpy again as I'm taking a mini break for the next few days. I will be back, though, the Lord willing.

If you are on my blogroll, you absolutely are my daily dose. Fascinating people all! Three bloggers are receiving this "The Daily Dose" award today because they have something that pulls me back every single day; in other words, they've developed a hook and I find that so clever that I am honoring them.

1. Happyone at Captain's Log

Happyone always provides sunset and day's length at the end of her post. If you are one of those light deprived folks, just the hope in those few minutes' gain are so pleasant. LOL! (I won't be visiting her blog after June. Just kidding!!!)

2. Zanne of At Home With the Farmer's Wife

Zanne writes about all manner of interesting topics and she often/usually ends each post by letting her readers know what the next day's topic will be. I love that.

3. Judy at My Front Porch

Judy shares her life and it includes more than the beautiful and the lovely. I like bloggers who are dimensional — those with whom I feel a connection or that "we're in this boat together." Judy is all of that and this doesn't just include the fact that we're both suffering with colds/flu this week. :) The photos of her exquisite corner of the world are amazing and I'm sure that you will agree.

I apologize for not knowing more or being able to find out more about this award. Feel free to interpret it any way that you choose, ladies. As always, you are off the hook if this doesn't fit into your blogging plans.

Thank you, Sandi. The award blessed me.


  1. She did it again!! No, not "batty Britney"! Our Vee! She again made a super new header picture and put her blog name behind it! Ohhh sigh. Ohhh moan. Ohhhh pout.

    And I know why she did it!!! Yes, I do! Yes, I do! Yes, I do! She did it to pester me!!! Me, who spent a lot of yesterday, trying to fix my Header! And without success.

    Seeeee? You all think Vee is such a sweet gal. But seeeeee? Somehow she *knew* I was going bonkers yesterday, trying to circumvent Blogger's mean Header Rules. Well, the mean Rules which Blogger imposses on ME, anyway. -sigh- -moan- -pout-

    LOLLLLLLLLLLLLLL OK! Now you all know I'm kidding with Vee, I hope!!! She is sweet and I'd never really accuse her of trying to be mean to me!!!

    "Nutty" Mari-Nanci will now sign off.



  2. Thank you vee, I'm so glad that like reading my blog. I sure have fun writing all 3 of them.
    Don't stay away too long. :-)
    Hope your dad is improving so he can see those sunsets with you.

  3. I think we're going to have to start a "winter blues" support group soon. There's just waaaaay too many of us having trouble getting kick started back into blogging in the new year! Wonder if this is normal? I've only blogged since June or July so I don't know if this sort of thing happens every year. Ah well. Doesn't matter. I'll miss reading you during your hiatus. As for me? I've decided I'm just going to be too flippin' ornery to keep my negative stuff to myself. I'm going to keep posting about it until EVERYONE gets too fed up with me to so much as even say "Hello" anymore. LOL

  4. Congratulations on your award, Vee! I hope you enjoy your break ... and feel better soon! ~ Lynda xo

  5. Congratulations! You are certainly part of my "daily dose". Stay cozy and warm inside and get better soon. Your snow pictures from the previous post are so beautiful.

  6. Vee,
    Take as long as a blog brea thaqt you need to until you are feeling better and I hope that is soon. I'm off to visit the blogs you mentioned in your post. See ya when I see ya!

  7. Thanks, Vee for passing your award along to me! Take care of yourself & we'll visit when you're back in blogland.

  8. Hi Vee...I hope all is well in your world today!! I missed you the past few days and am now catching up!
    Hugs to you,

  9. Okay darlin' Vee, now I've tagged you again and when you come home, you'll have to tackle it...it's all at my place...

  10. Oh I'm glad I offered you a bit of a distraction. I do hope you'll be feeling well again soon.
    I had a good chuckle at your eye brow post too .. .good one.

  11. Love the header - is it all your place?
    Sorry you have the flu. Hope you get to relax and recuperate quickly.
