overdue thank you’s, awards, and a little winnie-the-pooh

“The notice had been written by Christopher Robin, who was the only one in the forest who could spell; for Owl, wise though he was in many ways, able to read and write and spell his own name WOL, yet somehow went all to pieces over delicate words like MEASLES and BUTTERED TOAST.”

~ A.A. Milne, The World of Pooh

I can relate to dear Owl. Sometimes it’s like that.

Seems October had a few (several?) days like that. And then November was, well, November. I’ve lagged behind and been remiss in acknowledging and sharing some lovely gifts.

So now that I’ve basically recouped from the late nights and the mental/emotional intensity of NaNoWriMo, and my home has returned to some semblance of order, I shall endeavour to catch up over the next few posts.

  2. Winnie the Pooh has such a very special place in my heart! I had my one and only son when I was 37( he is now 20 years old and teaching English in S. Korea…. sniff…snifff). He and I used to watch the old, or earlier Winnie the Pooh videos/cartoons. Wonderful memories. I feel like buying them in book form for keepsakes.

    Thank you, Sandy



    • You’re welcome, Brinn. I loved watching those early Pooh stories, too. Especially those scenes where Pooh is jumping from one page onto the next. :o) Our copy of the The World of Pooh has long since lost its cover and is very dog-eared — much loved.

      I hope you have a wonderful holiday season!


  3. You’re so kind!! Thanks very much for the nomination. And a Winnie the Pooh quote. How absolutely perfect (my favorite…). ♥ According to my mother, me = Tigger, my brother = Eeyore. To this day, he is not happy about that…


  4. Sandy,
    Thank you for thinking of me and janthina images with this award. It is always nice to have someone think of you when passing out good thoughts and positive encouragement! it is very sweet and appreciated!


    • You’re welcome, Dave. And thank you. I hope you and your family have a beauty of a Christmas (to be read with a good strong Canadian accent).
