NOTICE: (Updated March 5, 2010)

Beginning December 19, 2009, Books 'N Border Collies will be posting but only intermittently while I pursue personal goals. I plan to share some reading I'm doing, but there will be no reviews. I will, however, be sharing my exploration of vegetarian cooking and the cookbooks and websites I use to educate myself. I hope you enjoy it!

I've been nominated! And I have dog news!

First, I'd like to thank Dar at Peeking Between the Pages for nominating me for this cool blog award! I'll get to all the details on that in a moment. . .

Peter and I are gearing up for an agility trial this weekend, the first one since our little debacle last month. The boys have been awesome in class these last few weeks, and I fully expect this trial to go swimmingly, so to speak. ;-) I'm just asking everyone to cross their fingers and toes for that Snooker Q. We have two shots at it with each of the boys. I'm hoping to get at least one for each. With that, Skye would finish all his Level 2 titles. He also has a shot at finishing his Level 3 Fun Games Title if he gets one of his Jumpers Qs. Max has a shot at his Level 3 Handler Games Title. All together, each dog will be competing in 10 runs. It will be a fun trial, and, as always, I will be sure to update their loyal fans on how they do. :-)

Now for that award. . .

Isn't it pretty? I will display it proudly! And here are the rules for the recipients:

1. Put the logo on your blog.
2. Add a link to the person who awarded you. (She is on my blogroll...She's that good!)
3. Nominate at least seven other blogs.
4. Add links to those blogs on your blog.
5. Leave a message for your nominees on their blog.

My nominees are (in alphabetical order):

1. Books I Done Read because she makes me laugh constantly.

2. Books Please because she was one of the first people I "met" in my new blog world, and she always has insightful comments on such interesting books.

3. Dog Ear Diary for letting us know about all those great animal books, even though I probably won't read most of them because I'll cry.

4. Lost in a Good Story is not only another early friend in my blog world, but is a fellow singer/performer and shares my enthusiasm for the 1001 Books list.

5. Mog's Blog for all the cool photos and poems and needlework and tea stuff and cats. Oh, and books, too!

6. Reading Adventures for sharing my love of historicals.

7. So Many Precious Book, So Little Time because she is another one that shares many of my reading tastes *and* she's a vegan! Very cool!

8. Tripping Towards Lucidity a/k/a Estella's Revenge because she keeps it real. And because Daisy is just soooooo cute! :-)

Thanks again to Dar for the award! And everyone go check out my nominees. As Tony The Tiger would say: They're grrrrrreat!

Wow, thanks so much! You've chosen half the ones I want to nominate, now what do I do?

Lezlie said...

Jeane ~ I think it's okay to nominate someone again. I think two of my choices had already been nominated, too, and I didn't know it. Now they know they're twice as loved. :-)


zetor said...

Thankyou Lezlie, that's a lovely surprise. Hope the weekend goes well.

Darlene said...

Hey Lezlie, a whole bunch of good luck to the boys this weekend. I hope they do awesome!!! Can't wait to hear about it.

Kara said...

Congrats on the blog award - you definitely deserve it. And here's to keeping my fingers crossed for the trials this weekend. Can't wait to hear how things go.

Lezlie said...

Joanna ~ That's because you are!

Raych ~ You're welcome! And the sparkly thing is rather nice, I agree. :-)


Linda/CT said...

Hi glad to read this; it's also one of my alternates and have wanted to read it for soooo long. Wooohoo, it'll be read soon. Did you see the PBS series?? It's at our library and will watch it again after I read the book. Linda/CT

Lezlie said...

Hi, Linda! I have not seen the I, Claudius PBS series, but my hubby says I have to. If it's even half as good as the book, I'm sure I'll love it! I hope you enjoy the book as much as I did.


BooksPlease said...

Thank you Lezlie. I've been away and only just found this, such a nice surprise.

The I Claudius books were great favourites of mine years ago and the TV series with Derek Jacobi - is that the same as PBS - maybe not?

Lezlie said...

Hi, Margaret! I'm not sure if that's the same or not. I'll have to look into that.
