My World

Like every other writer out there, I live in two worlds. And each of those is divided further.

In my writing world, there's the me that sits and thinks and stares into space. Types a few words. Repeats.

Then there's the me that blogs and emails and belongs to groups and all of that.

And the me that receives blog awards :)

Thanks to Sharde at Realm of Randomness for presenting me with the From Me To You Award:


Sharde hosts a great blog with new fun stuff every week.

All I have to do is share this award with five other blooming ... excuse me, I mean blog friends. It's always hard to choose, but here we go:

Aubrie at Flutey Words . . .

Hannah at Musings of a Palindrome

Laura at A Shift in Dimensions

Patti at Patti Lacy Blog

VR at VR Barkowski

Then there's the me in the real world. Here are a couple of views from there:

A sunset viewed from the front of our home a few weeks ago:


And the furry boys, Shiner/Arf on the left and Wrangler/Woof on the right. We're doing some advanced training. Here they were practicing sit/stay:

Thank you, Carol! I'm honored that you thought of me in a bloomin' sort of way. ;)

I always love seeing the pooches!

Palindrome said...

Awwwww, thanks!! I laughed when I got your comment. :D you made my day!

Maryann Miller said...

Congrats on the award. The sunset picture was so lovely, and it looks like the dogs are learning their lessons well.

Carol Kilgore said...

Laura - Of course. All my best friends are bloomin' :)

Hannah - Cool!

Maryann - That was the most gorgeous sunset I'd seen in a long time. The furries are coming along.

Praise God that we found each other out here in cyberspace!

I'm so fortunate to have you on my blogroll.
And thanks for the award!

I'm tickled rosy!!

Love the sunset - I've been enjoying quite a few myself lately. And balancing the facets of our lives keeps things interesting. Being one-dimensional would be boring.

Patti - You're welcome.

Terry - I agree.

Lovely sunset. I've turned into a kind of petophobe, but I guess that comes from living in an urban area. I don't like pets in areas of close proximity to many humans. I used to enjoy having dogs when I was in a rural setting and they could just happily do their natural stuff out in nature and roam happily and go on walks with me. Ah, a boy and his dog.

Congrats on that blogging award!

Such a beautiful sunset picture. (And your "boys" are so cute!--and good.)

Talli Roland said...

Congrats on the award! And oh, what a beautiful sunset.

Elspeth Antonelli said...

Congrats on the award and thanks for sharing that sunset. The sky is a painting.

Carol Kilgore said...

Arlee - Arf would be happier with a hundred acres to run. Woof would love it if he never had to go outside.

Clarissa - The sunset was too nice to keep to myself.

Jennifer - The furries are wagging their tails :)

Talli - You can borrow the sunset on your next gray London day.

Elspeth - Exactly.

Ann Best said...

Lovely photographs. And congratulations on the award. It's nice to come in here today and see your smiling face!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Congratulations!

VR Barkowski said...

Thank you so much, Carol! You've put a smile on my [slightly perspiring] face. I'm honored.

Gorgeous sunset, btw, and those pups are too cute. Not to mention talented. My guy is a master of the sit, but stay? Not so much... :)

Carol Kilgore said...

Ann - Thanks

Alex - See above ... LOL

VR - HOT here, too. Our two have been working hard for a couple months. I'm proud of their progress. We still have a ways to go, though. We're halfway through the program. And there have been setbacks. But all is good.

Aubrie said...

Thanks for the award! I love your new photo.

Good luck with the training. They look like they're listening so far!

Lydia Kang said...

Congrats on the award, and to all the new recipients!
I love the sunset, it's so beautiful!

Carol Kilgore said...

Aubrie - You're welcome. They listen when they want to - LOL. Glad you like the photo.

Lydia - Thanks. That sunset was gorgeous.

Cassandra Jade said...

Congrats on the award. I think most of us have more than two of us. The us that writes, the us that socialises online, the us that goes out with friends, etc.

Jayne said...

Congrats on the Award, and to the recipiants! Did I tell you how much I love Arf and Woof? And as for the sitting and thinking and staring thing - oh yes. I do TONS of that - too much!

kimberlyloomis said...

Congratulations on your award, Carol! Thanks for sharing pics from your life, too. Love the puppies. :)

Carol Kilgore said...

Cassandra - I'm glad I'm not the only one!

Jayne - Thanks. Arf and Woof send doggie kisses :)

Kimberly - Glad you like the pics.
