Oh my. What an honor.

Roberta, a spiritual director in Washinton State and regular commenter on this blog, has graciously given me the Superior Scribbler Award. How truly lovely. Thank you so very much, Roberta! Roberta produces the blog entitled "Spiritually Directed." Now it's my turn to pass it on. Here's how the process works:

*Each Superior Scribbler must in turn pass The Award on to 5 most-deserving Bloggy Friends.
*Each Superior Scribbler must link to the author & the name of the blog from whom he/she has received The Award.
*Each Superior Scribbler must display The Award on his/her blog, and link to this Post, which explains The Award.
*Each Blogger who wins The Superior Scribbler Award must visit this post and add his/her name to the Mr. Linky List. That way, we'll be able to keep up-to-date on everyone who receives This Prestigious Honor!
*Each Superior Scribbler must post these rules on his/her blog.

Okay. Here are my own five choices:

1. Of Course I Could Be Wrong. Naturally, I need to start with this blog that breaks all the categories. It's the community gathering place for a really motley and wonderful group of people held together by none other than Mad Priest himself.

2. Imageplay Photography by my dear friend, Cynthia Burgess. Okay, maybe this is not quite in line with the award in question since there is no "scribbling" involved - only photographs. But Cynthia happens to be an excellent scribbler, in point of fact, and is truly a dynamite photographer. I really want people to see her stuff.

3. AMERICAblog which is put together by John Aravosis. This blog will reveal my politics, if you happen to be curious about such things. I go here every single day and it helps me keep up with what's going on that the mainstream news sometimes overlooks or, at least, de-emphasizes.

4. Wounded Bird by the inimitable Grandmère Mimi. As she herself puts it, "Wounded Bird, on occasion, indulges in irony." Mimi lives in Lousiana (where I was born) and is a fellow Episcopalian. She comments on matters both ecclesiastical and political.

5. A Dress A Day by Erin. It's not religious, it's not political. I just like it a LOT. (It's the vintage stuff that's quite wonderful!) And that Erin. My goodness, can she write. Please check out her series, "The Secret Lives of Dresses". You can find each title in the sidebar. Here's one of my favorites.

Do visit the above blogs, if you're so inclined, and Roberta's too! I must say, it was fun making this list.


  1. thanks for the new blogs to visit ellie...and regarding your political views, i guess the proverbial cat is now out of the bag :)

  2. Congratulations! But long ago when I gave you an award, I don't think you ever mentioned it.....awhhh. Still, I'm glad you posted it!

  3. Oh Jan! Did you? I'm so sorry. I wonder what was going on with me at that time that I got so distracted.

    I really apologize. Really.

    And, yes, I'm honored that you did that. (Thank you for telling me again.)
