    Hi Megha..thank you for visiting my site...I had to smile when I saw your comment because I was in the middle of writing and editing the blog at the very same time you visited...I don't know when you slipped in with your message...I must have been working on a photo on my computer. The colored pencil drawing was the one with the pots of hen and chick plants and the little calico cat asleep.

    Thank you so much for the award! It's always very nice if some one finds you worthy enough to give an award. Could you please read my post about awards? It is on Tuesday, 21 July 2009
    ABC Wednesday A for Awards. I collected all awards in a slide and explained that I am grateful for awards and like the bloggers who gave them, but I amnot going to show them or pass them on. It's too much work. So I collected all my 20 and more in a map.
