  7. YOU are truly the versatile blogger. You inspire so many!!! I so enjoy you and get so excited when I see a new post pop up in my Google Reader from you! Thank you for the award for Hodgepodge. I have been meaning to pass this along and was saving it to do just that. Our Hodgepodge site is in a bit of a tangle. We are paused at Christmas :) We're going to take a few weeks to figure it out.
    Happy New Year Phyllis!
