My treasure from one of my super bloggy pals and remembering

I got this most wonderful award from one of my most wonderful bloggy pals. Tricia over at Talespinning honored me and I am very happy to accept. Thank you Tricia!! It means so very much to me. I really respect Tricia and all my blog pals. It's wonderful having y'all to turn to. This comes with no strings attached, but I want to give it to some folks who ALWAYS leave super comments on my blog and all the other blogs too. :)

Jennifer over at Me, My Muse and I. She is funny and always makes me smile no matter what is happening in my day. Thanks guys!

I am remembering those who left us on 9/11 today. Say a prayer for those that were left behind. What a day that was. God bless America!!!!! :)

I was home-schooling and a friend called and told me to turn the TV on. I know I don't have to tell you that our school work was canceled that day. Where were you when the twin towers went down?


  1. Robyn, on that day, when I got a call to turn on the TV, I did. But nothing came in - because we didn't have cable, and the transmitting antennas were on top of the WTC. I listened to the radio and then went to a neighbors house and saw the TV coverage. My kids were little (4 and 1) so I needed to hide my panic from them. Then we went to the waterfront in our town, and looked at what used to be.

    I wrote about it on my blog (The Simple and the Ordinary) today.

    I think we're all remembering today. How could we forget?

  2. Yay! Congrats on the award!

    I was at my new job, a teller at a bank. Some customers came in and told us, and it was a pretty big shock.

  3. Congrats on the award!! That's great!!

    I was at work when the towers were hit, and my husband was working in the Board of Trade building. His whole building was promptly closed and he was sent home, and my building was closed shortly thereafter. So we went home and watched the coverage on TV together, holding each other's hands.

  4. Like everyone else, I congratulate you on the award, thought I'm not surprised a super-blogger like you won it. I Am suprised you passed the love on my way. And honored. Thank you.

    I'm also suprised I totally forgot it was 9/11. I can't believe it's already been eight years. I was two-months married at the time and attenting college. I walked into some general computer applications class and the professor had the television on, showing these buildings on fire. A student next to me explained what had happened, and it felt so surreal. The professor was Irish and had seen a car bombing one time in Ireland. She was so shaken by the news, she cancelled class. So I went home, woke my hubby (who was working night shift and had just gone to bed), and we sat in the living room together, watching TV. It was strange, knowing the world would be forever changed.

  5. Congratulations on the award and thank you so much for passing it on to me. How sweet!

    On 9/11, I was at work, just about to start my shift. I was doing administrative work, so I was in the managers office and we had the television on. I remember wanting to get home to my little girl and spend time with her. Life is so precious.

  6. Congrats . . . and thanks.

    I was at work on 9/11/01. I drove home briefly to get one of the handheld tvs we have. I remember the drive being very eerie, the sky was just this brilliant blue color, not a cloud in sight, and the roads were almost deserted. It was very freaky.


  7. Congrats on your award!

    I was home thinking about my birthday breakfast holding my newborn. *sigh* so sad.

  8. Glad you like the award, and congratulations to those you have honored.
    We all need each other on these September elevens as they come with the memories I don't think we can forget. I mourn for the people who fell like leaves, the families who never had loved ones come home, the first responders who gave all. That day was surreal for me because I had important tests scheduled at a hospital and when I called to ask if I should come, they said, yes. I drove on deserted freeways and walked into a hospital where all the patients and caregivers were gathered around TVs, watching in silence. It was, and is, a shared grief of enormous proportion.

  9. Congrats on the award. I was eating breakfast with my kids before taking them to school when the first plane hit. At that time, I thought it was just a crash. It troubled me, but when I got home and learned what was really going on, I was devastated.

  10. I remember that morning quite clearly. I'm in California, so it felt really far away, but it was right before I was leaving for my lab. When I got to the university, everything was locked up and people were rushing home. For a place that usually has workers 24/7, it was frightening to see that something had actually stopped an entire university.

  11. A very sad day to remember.
    I was at the dentist office. Then work. All I wanted to do was go pick up my son.

  12. Congratulations on the award! I'm going to check out the blogs you mentioned.

    And yes, 9/11 was horrific. It was my first day home from the hospital with my baby boy. I still feel the protectiveness combined with panic whenever I remember that awful day.

  13. I just read your comment. Thanks for the compliment, and I'm glad you like Audra - after all she is the title character. LOL! What do you usualy write about?

  14. I write MG adventure and YA mystery stuff. And I do love Audra. Even her name and what I read about her gives me this picture in my head of what she is like. Great writing! :)


Leave me a note! :)
