What a Lovely Surprise to Receive a Blog Award

What an absolutely lovely surprise I got earlier this week when not one, but two kind writers awarded Notes Along the Way a "One Lovely Blog" award. The honor came from both Pat Stoltey and Marian Allen.

After eight fun but tiring days on the road, traveling from Virginia by way of Pennsylvania through several more states up to Wisconsin then back again by way of the West Virginia route, I was glad to settle back down in front of the computer. It was a really a nice surprise to discover the awards not long after I turned on the computer!

Almost a week after our return I am still struggling through the almost 16,000 e-mails in my Inbox. I've always had a backlog but nothing like this. I suspect many would suggest I go to digest on some of the loops to which I belong, but I don't want to do that--not yet anyway. I just hope I haven't missed something important caught up in the swamp that has overwhelmed me.

In keeping with the One Lovely Blog award, I get to pass this award to the following eight bloggers. Here are their sites:

Congratulations and enjoy!

Emails can really pile up. I'm thinking about going on digest for two groups I belong to. It would make it easier it keep up with email. I always take my laptop with me on trips, but that means I'm checking email when I should be relaxing. 16,000 emails is amazing!

That number is mind-boggling!!!
I take my laptop but usually don't get as much done as I do at home. I belong to many more than two groups--don't even know how many. Several are connected with RWA, and I have two publishers with more than one group related to each one!

Thanks for your comment.

Congratulations! And I don't think I could handle that many emails.

Sunny Room Studio thanks you for the blog award! Nice surprise! As bloggers, we sometimes wonder if anyone is "out there" ... so many thanks for the mention. Hope your emails are quickly deleted ... IF unimportant! Take care and thanks again, Monti. Best wishes, Daisy Hickman @ http://tinyurl.com/2a85ae5

I start to get panicky with more than 30 e-mails in my inbox.

Thanks for the recognition! I appreciate it.
