Awwwwww, Gee

Lori has given me this award! It's called Arte y Pico. I looked for a translation in google and got these.

Here are the rules: (from the Arte y Pico site itself)

1) You have to pick 5 blogs that you consider deserve this award, creativity, design, interesting material, and also contrubutes to the blogger community, no matter of language.

2) Each award has to have the name of the author and also a link to his or her blog to be visited by everyone.

3) Each award-winning, has to show the award and put the name and link to the blog that has given her or him the award itself.

4) Award-winning and the one who has given the prize have to show the link of "Arte y pico"blog , so everyone will know the origin of this award.

5) To show these rules.

The original site is in Spanish. I'm still new to blogging, so I'm sure I could figure out a way to translate it, but it's 11:00 at night and I'm leaving on a major driving trip to Colorado tomorrow, so I'm going to plead laziness and not try to do that tonight.

Of course I have to give this award to knitter Mrs. Spit, since it looks as if a great deal of the award site is devoted to knitting (some of it to crocheting...and I'm not sure how much due to my language limitations. Maybe it's a crocheting which case is it an insult to give such an award to a knitter? Regardless, Mrs. Spit's site is a work of art from its web design to her stunning essays. Please go read her.)

And Doug is a natural, since his entire site is devoted to art. His photography and paintings are amazing.

Another knitter, artist and wordsmith is Maddy. I also recommend Mercurious, and Andrea.
Gee, I wish I could say something eloquent about the pleasure I get from reading their blogs, but my brain has just checked out. I really need to put it to bed.

Thanks, Lori. But you're my Cuz, you have to like me! (See you in a coupla days.)

Well done you! Congratulations indeedy.

Thank you so much for thinking of me too, I've very touched in a slightly unhinged kind of a way.

Best wishes

Safe travels. You are so deserving of this award, with your depth of thought and picture-painting words!

Thanks, Maddy. I wish I could have given your blog the description it deserves.

Ah, Lori, thanks.

See my next post. Too bad it took only one day to strip myself of my award.

Insofar as the translation goes: God made Alta Vista's Babel Fish for a reason:

Sorry to be so far behind in keeping up with what you have been doing... I would also recommend Babelfish, andthe translator I have at the bottom of my page is also good.
