The Proximity award is for blogs which: "...invest and believe in Proximity; Nearness in space, time and relationships. These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and to be friends. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to 8 bloggers, who must then chose 8 more and include this text into the body of their award."
I based my choices not only on their great blogs, but on how they've interacted with me here in blogger land and how well I feel we've all gotten to know one another. (Please don't be mad if I didn't pick you! I love all of my fellow bloggers!)
turkey feathers is a delightful blog that I've been reading for 3 years now.

Thanks for the honor Jo!

On a side note, Have you read A Midwife's Tale: The Life of Martha Ballard, Based on Her Diary, 1785-1812 by Laurel Thatcher Ulrich? You popped into my mind as soon as I unpacked it today.

You're all welcome! (Re: Proximity)

B,
I'll send you my email!

Lizzi,
I haven't heard of that book - what brought me to mind when you saw it?!

Lizzi said...

Jo,
I'm not really sure what brought you to mind...maybe New England women from when we were discussing Salem, maybe your posts regarding your health...

Anyway, I read it in college liked it. It's been awhile but I remember enjoying the glimpse into everyday life, how medicine was practiced, the prevailing thoughts of the time. If you are interested in it I'd be happy to send you my copy. Let me know.
