Pink skies in the morning and an AWARD

Pink skies in the morning.

Pink skies in the evening.

When I opened the door to leave this morning for work, beautiful pink skies greeted me. I had an extra moment, so I ran back inside to get the camera for a picture. And then this evening, I noticed a rosy glow out the window and there it was, pink skies this evening. Click on the pictures for a larger view, if you wish.

I have been getting so many wonderful new visitors to my blog lately and I think it's got something to do with that little black box! I've discovered many new blogs, some that I will keep returning to visit, and lots of lovely comments from bloggers from Great Britain. It's so good to hear from you!


Today, I've also won an award. It was presented to me by a new blogger named Adventure Girl Wanna Be. She's given me the Dog Lover's Award and I do love dogs. Especially my George. So, thank you Adventure Girl!
I'm going to pass this award on to Dlyn, whose Riley does his own posts occasionally. And I'd also like to award Russell at Iowa Grasslands, whose Bailey also does posts from time to time!

Thanks again, Adventure Girl. George sends his thanks, too. Well, not really. He could sort of care less. He's been too busy making sure the cat wipes her paws before she comes in the house these days. He's turned into the paw police here after he got yelled at for making the floor dirty when it was actually the cat who did it!

Until tomorrow, my friends.

Aw - how cool is that? Riley is thrilled right down to his toes! And me too - thanks Kate :)

Congrats on the most deserved Doggy award - guess I should be congratulating the uncaring George as well!

Stella-Dog regularly take Trey-You's (the cat) head in her mouth so Trey-You knows who's boss and who lays down the rules. Trey-You took exception to this the other day and laid open Stella-Dog's nose. Much as I love Stella-Dog, she certainly deserved that!

Great photos. You should join Skywatch Fridays where we post photos of the sky. Stop by my blog and scroll down to last Friday. The link will be there.

Oh, my... I bet the cat LOVES that! She''ll find a way to exact revenge, no doubt. That's a great photo, by the way.

Ha! What a vigilant dog. Mine would be so vigilant he wouldn't want to take the chance that my cat might dirty the floor. Instead he'd simply eat her. Oh, poor kitty. Hence the gate at the top of the stairs. N'er the two shall meet!
