Tuesday’s Notes ~ Posted on Wednesday (Because AT&T’s signal wasn’t!)

Nominations for the Okie Blog Awards
Attention! Only a few days left to nominate your favorite blog for the Okie Blog Awards! (Come on, you know you want to do this!) You have until next Tuesday, February 3rd. Voting will take place the second week of February and winners will be announced in the days following.
There are approximately 1400 or so bloggers that belong to Blog Oklahoma. ~ I know, I spent every night for about a week checking out the different blog sites! Like the state which we belong to, we are a diverse group. There is something for everyone. My only disappointment was the fact some really cool bloggers are no longer blogging! Nevertheless, there is a wealth of talent to be found and participating in the blog awards helps to bring awareness to this growing community resource. Whether you are looking for entertainment, news, or information you are sure to find just what you want and make new friends along the way.
With all contest, there are rules; however, these are pretty simple. In order to nominate a particular blog, you need to a) be a blogger and b) at least one blog author reside in Oklahoma. You can find out all the particulars here.
You can nominate in as many categories as you like, just nominate one blog/blogger for each. Or if you had rather (and you are not familiar with too many of the different blogs) just nominate your favorite blog in the categories that blog is best suited for. Prairie Maid is nominated in one or two ~ best rural (maybe) and best newcomer ~ I’d tell, but I am not sure. I appreciate any and all support, but the important thing is to support those people who are taking the time to share their lives with you!
(I really think there should be a category for “Best Old Dog, That *has* Learned New Tricks!” Blogging has forced me to learn many new things. Who would of thought?!
You can find a list of all the categories for the 2009 awards here.
Today, be sure and checkout what Katie is cooking up over at Dishin and Dishes. Her daughters made these (to die for) Cookies-n-Cream Cheesecake Cupcakes (say that 5 times without stopping!) If you are looking for a great food blog, Katie is top-notch!
Remember, Georgie has that cool giveaway going on. Friday is the last day. You can find out all about it here.
And there is always *always* something happening with Ree over at Pioneer Woman!
So, grab another cup of coffee and enjoy your day!
On another note, those that would, please pray for my neighbor. She receives the results of her biopsy tomorrow.
BTW ~ If you see my camera, be sure and call. I have turned this house upside down looking for it. Dh started giving the grandsons riding lessons yesterday and Mama horse (Faith) was in no mood to be messed with. We had quite the rodeo….and NO CAMERA!
Update ~ still no camera! Waiting to hear from Dot. Georgie and Katie, I am ignoring the weather, so completely (except dh made me go to the grocery and the feed store this morning). Praying those weather dudes are just over reacting.
Georgie, we will see what we can do about Robbers Cave this summer! Wonder if anyone else would be interested?
