A big shout-out of thanks to Life with Lorelai who nominated this blog for the Versatile Blogger Award. How exciting! Especially after last month, when a couple of really great bloggers humbled me by nominating my little venture for the Epically Awesome Award of Epic Awesomeness.
Lorelai runs a blog where she describes herself as "a Mom, Writer, Pumpkin Artist, Karaoke Singing, Cooking, Gardener Blogging about Life, Love, Interests..." She has a lot of fun posts, so head on over and check it out!
I think versatility is a great quality to have in our modern world. My mom's dad always told her, "Barchy, don't be a jack of all trades, be a master of one." Well, Barchy and me, we've both had to be versatile to get by in life. So I appreciate this award even more.
The rules are I need to nominate up to 15 other blogs and tell you 7 things about me.
I have encountered so many great blogs lately - parenting blogs, crafty blogs and spiritual blogs that cover a variety of topics, here are a few - in addition to the ones I nominated for the Epic award:
Called To Be a Mom
Upside Down Kids
At the Lake
Crystal's Tiny Treasures
Grandpa's Christian Soldiers
Creative K Kids
The Paper Vine
The Practically Green Mom
And 7 things about me... hmmmmm.... let's see...
1. I do not like complicated cooking. I tried making a "roux" for gumbo the other night, burned it twice, melted a spoon and, when I realized I'd have to stand stirring it for 20 minutes, gave up.
2. I am a sucker for Duck Dynasty. I love those guys! Especially when they sit down to pray and eat at the end of the show.
3. I like all the creatures most people don't seem to - snakes, bats, spiders, wasps. I feel like every creature has its place - not on you or in your house, of course! But they are here for a reason, a purpose, just like us.
4. I am extremely allergic to poison ivy. I *shiver* just thinking about it. I think IT'S purpose in life is to keep us humble and knowing we are not invincible.
5. I have big feet! Stylish size 9's are so hard to find.
6. Chips are my weakness. I rarely buy them because I can't stop eating them!
7. I drive a 2001 Toyota Corolla with 180,000+ miles. I love it!
