HAPPY NEW YEAR!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Can you believe it?  It's 2014 already. Another year has arrived.

We said goodbye to 2013 last night around midnight.  Thankfully, last year did not go out with a bang.  The peep says that's a good thing 'cause when things go bang at our house it's usually 'cause a cat knocked somethin' down and whatever that somethin' was went bang when it broke into teeny tiny pieces.  Hmmm...  Perhaps we cats have already broken all the breakables? Could be.  Or maybe we were just bein' especially good last night.  Time will tell, I suppose.  All depends on whether the peeps find that... uh...  um...  never mind.

Anywho...  so much stuff happened last year.  So much stuff happened that I had a hard time fittin' it all in.  Due to circumstances beyond my control, such as what I refer to as incompetent peepage, I accidentally neglected to do some stuff I should have done way back in 2013.  MOUSES!

This incompetent peepage is the main reason I have 2013 awards leaking out into 2014.  That and somethin' to do with the time lines being affected by the use of Seville's refurbished whisks, I do believe.  Yeah, it's true.  I still need to accept a few awards that I was awarded last year.  Again I say, MOUSES!

So without further ado, let's get on with the show.

Have you heard of the Cracking Crispmouse Bloggywog Award?  It's a beaut, for sure.  My pal Pillster who writes the amazin' blog, Catnip Capers gave me this gorgeous award just before Christmas.  The Cracking Crispmouse Bloggywog Award is Pillster's very own creation and what a magnificent creation it is.  I'm so honoured to have been one of the very first recipients.  Thank you Pillster!  I love the award very much.

In acceptin' the Cracking Crispmouse Bloggywog Award, there are some rules.  But the rules are easy peasy and are as follows...

1.  To be eligible for the award, a bloggywog must spread one or more of joy, peace, hope and love.
2.  Anyone receiving the award may, if they wish, pass it on to any other anipal bloggywogger whose
     bloggywog satisfies rule number one.
3.  There is no minimum or maximum limit on the number of furiends you can pass the award onto:
     you can be as Scroogy or as generous as you like.

See?  Easy peasy, for sure.

I would very much like to pass this award on to pretty much everyone but I know I should leave some blogs for the next batch of recipients to pass it along to so, as difficult as it was, I narrowed it down to seven.

- Nellie at The Cat from Hell
- Sammy at onespoiledcat
- Savvy at Savannah's Paw Tracks
- the staff at DashKitten
- Tex at Texas, a Cat in Austin
- Loupi & Zorro at Swiss Cat Blog
- Kizzie at Kizzie Cat

And now for award number two!  This next award celebrates that which is the box.  Gosh, I love boxes.  Turns out that I love this incredible award celebratin' the box, too.  It's called the Share the Love, Share the Box Award.  What a great idea.


My pal Tex, author of the world-famous blog, Texas, a Cat in Austin created this gorgeous award and handed it out for the very first time on December 26th...  Boxing Day.  Pretty appropriate, huh?  Tex, thank you so very much for honouring me as one of the very first recipients.  It's a super award and I absolutely love it.  Thank you!

Anywho...  in acceptin' the Share the Love, Share the Box Award, there are some rules but again, super easy rules, for sure.

1.  Thank the blogger who awarded you the award.
2.  Post the award on your blog.
3.  Share the award with five bloggers and let them know they have received it.
4.  Go find a box and have fun with it.  Rule number four is optional but highly recommended.

And now to announce the five winners of this spectacular award.  Drum roll, please...

- Loupi & Zorro at Swiss Cat Blog
- Kizzie at Kizzie Cat
- Pillster at Catnip Capers
- Herman at It's a Wonderpurr Life
- Spitty at Spitty Speaks

Please note that I, Nerissa the Cat, took rule number four to heart and immediately found a box and had some fun with it. In fact, I spent most of Boxing Day morning nappin' in that box.  It was an excellent nappin' box, for sure.

Finally, I have one more award to accept.  My great pal Nellie over at Cat from Hell awarded me with my third star for the Blog of the Year 2013 Award.  I was so pleased to receive this.  Three stars down... three to go.  Can I do it? Don't know.  2013 is long gone but I'm pretty sure we can continue to award stars if need be.  Hint, hint...

In acceptin' the Blog of the Year 2013 Award, there are rules and those rules may be found over on the page belonging to the creator of this award, The Thought Palette.  You'll wanna check that out, for sure.

Clearly, there are a whole whack of blogs out there deserving of more stars but again, sadly, I must restrain myself and not give it to everybody 'cause we'd all be here from now until 2015 if I did. So what I'm gonna do is award the Blog of the Year 2013 Award to everyone to whom I gave either one or both of the above awards.  And the winners are...

- Nellie at The Cat from Hell
- Sammy at onespoiledcat
- Savvy at Savannah's Paw Tracks
- the staff at DashKitten
- Tex at Texas, a Cat in Austin
- Loupi & Zorro at Swiss Cat Blog
- Kizzie at Kizzie Cat
- Pillster at Catnip Capers
- Herman at It's a Wonderpurr Life
- Spitty at Spitty Speaks

Whew!  What a lot of awards.  CONGRATULATIONS everyone!  Just think, receiving awards today, on the very first day of the new year, bodes extremely well for receiving awards all year long.  Yoo-hoo!  YOO-HOO!!!

Again I say...  HAPPY NEW YEAR!  I wish all my pals a wonderful and glorious 2014.  May this coming year be our best year ever.
