Honored (*UPDATED*)

Blog Awards Winner

Hey, I received a Blog-of-the-Day Award yesterday!

I hadn't heard of this one before,
but it turns out that a real, live reader nominated me.

Thank you!!!

And now--does anyone know how I could change
the HTML on that button to center it? Do share.

Updated to add:

My undying gratitude goes to Melissa of Tea with Milk. She taught me how to center a graphic--so simple! (I just tried to tell all of you, but it won't come across without formatting my post all weird. Let's justsay you begin with the word "center" inside <>'s and end with "center/" inside <>'s. There, that worked.)

Melissa also admitted to being a frequent reader, which is always a HUGE encouragement. And a quick look at her blog totally rocked my day, because she's got a quote from The Pace of a Hen front and center on her site! Not only that, but it made her list of "All-time favorite books" as well (as did two Elizabeth Goudge novels that I loved too). And on her list of "Favorite books of 2006" appear The Quotidian Mysteries, The Pace of a Hen again, and Precious Bane, a book that the author of The Pace of a Hen recommends. Besides all that, Melissa has 8 children--two graduated--and homeschools them, so I'm just tickled to meet her.

Thanks so much, Melissa!!
