Sunshine Awards | Monday Mischief

I'm walking on sunshine... and don't it feel good!

Earlier this month I received a beautiful Sunshine Award from MK Clinton at Barking from the Bayou.  Then last week I received one from JoAnn at Sand Spring Chesapeakes

So where's the mischief?
Rosie is disappointed because these awards didn't come with dog treats!

No, the real mischief is that I'm not going to follow the rules for the awards.

Each came with a different set of rules and I'm just going to follow the ones I want to!

The easy one: thank the person who gave it to me.

Thank you,  M.K. Clinton!  If you haven't read her Barking from the Bayou blog, you should, plus she writes a wonderful award winning book series called The Returns. Personally, I love a self-described GRITS (Girl Raised in The South.) Besides, I'm in love with her Basset Hound, Bentley.

Thank you, JoAnn!  She makes me laugh with stories of hunting gators; she makes me cry with her tributes to her heart dog, Norman.  Fetch her Sand Spring Chesapeakes blog for some fun! I love JoAnn's dogs and I love her, too.

Both definitely bring sunshine into my life and I thank you so much!

Name ten things about myself?  Ummm... no thanks.  Too boring!

Pass the award on to 10 other blogs that bring me sunshine.  Nope.  Not gonna do it.  Way more than 10 blogs bring me sunshine!  

So, I'm just going to call your attention to a few great blogs that are new (or new-ish) to me and pass this award on to them.
Fetch these blogs and enjoy!
