The Versatile Blogger Award

This week, I am honored and pleased to share that this blog has been given the Versatile Blogger Award by three fellow bloggers-

Farmgirl and blog sister Michelle of Michelle's Little Piece of Heaven blog.  Thank you Michelle! 

Farmbrother Clint of The Redeemed Gardener-  For those of you that haven't yet been to Clint's blog, you gotta go check it out.  He is a GREAT and resourceful gardener.  He is preparing an amazing garden this season.  

AND- Farm sister Sheryl of Cypress Hill Farm.  Thanks Sheryl.  If you have not yet met Sheryl, please run to her blog.  You have got to see her farm animals.  Sheryl raises Belted Galloway cattle and St. Croix sheep.  You have got to see these animals.  Sheryl is a gardener, farmer, rancher, crafter, and grandmother; to name a few of her hats.  

Here are the RULES for the Versatile Blogger Award-

1. Add the award to your blog.

2. Thank the blogger who gave it to you.
3. Mention seven random things about yourself. (see below)
4. List the rules.
5. Award to 15 bloggers.
6. Inform each of those 15 by leaving a comment on their blog.

Here are SEVEN random things about me...

1. I
 thrive on learning new things. 
2. I have to do things the long way, no shortcuts. It's usually the hard way.
3. My dream is to move to a small farm on the river, and be self sufficient.
4. I have an almost photographic memory for numbers.
5. I am just one class away from being a plant doctor.
6. My husband now calls me "The Butcher" due to the heavy pruning I gave the fruit trees this winter... He'll thank me later.
7. I prefer D.I.Y., homesteading and primitive skills books, and organic gardening journals to fiction or textbooks.

Below is my selection of fifteen blogs that I follow and find worthy of reading and re-reading each week.  I have learned so much from this list of blogs.  I hope you'll agree they're each special and offer so much to our blogging community.  It's a diverse group featuring quilters, homesteaders, food preservers, farmers, gardeners, and great cooks.  Most of them do all of these tasks and much more.  It was TOUGH to choose because there are so many wonderful blogs that I read and enjoy, but here they are.  I hope you enjoy them too.  Thank you Michelle, and thank YOU for reading.  Have a good week!
