A Big Ole Thank You

I got two awards on the same day!

Thank you so much Isobelle, of Isobelle Golightly  the Beautiful Goat and DebH at Dakota Goats! I am always humbled, and tickled pink when I get an award! I usually don't pass them along because,for one, I have sooo many blogs I just love I can't pick just a few! I have homesteading blogs,goat blogs,farm blogs, canning blogs, cooking blogs, inspirational blogs,humor blogs......whew! I just love so many of you all I could never choose so I am going to break the rules and give it to all my friends! So if you want to play along and tell every one 10 things about your self..well just do it!

1. You must accept the award.
2. Thank the person who gave you the award.
3. Add a link to the person who gave you the award.
4. Paste the award on your blog.
5. Write 10 things about yourself that others might not know.
6. Pass the award on to 10 others.

1.  When I say I am a hermit,I really mean I am a hermit! I could actually live in Ted  Kaczynski's
uni-bomber    shack!

2.  I can not type! It takes me forever to do a blog post! Hubby keeps telling me to take  lessons but I have so many interesting things I would rather uses my time to learn and do! I also had no idea how bad I spelled until spell check! Geesh!

3.  I love to travel. Not tourist travel, out of the way,back roads,nook and cranny travel!

4. I am fiercely protective of my son and husband. I will unleash on someone that tries to hurt either one of them like a hungry momma bear! Other that that I consider my self easy going!

5. I can't stand people who live off welfare and disability who are perfectly capable of working! I also hate drug addicts and dealers!

6. My heart longs for the mountains .

7.  I do not dye my hair.I earned every single gray hair!

8. hmmm ...this is getting hard! Hubby and I have moved 11 times in almost 19 years of marriage!

9.The reason we only have one child is not from lack of trying! We always wanted more...but it was not meant to be.

10. I always wanted to be Laura Ingalls ! I guess I kind of am now, as much as I can be as an almost middle aged woman in modern society !

Well...that was harder than I though! I just don't consider myself that interesting.....So, are you going to play along?

Hi, just loved what you had to say. Also, how are those baby chicks. Love the photos of your goats as well! Have a great weekend, blessings,Kathleen

DebH said...

You are more like me than I realized! A hermit? I just laughed because I picture that as one of my goals! :)

Hmmm, the hermit and the travel thing seem to contradict.

I learned to type in high school and I am so thankful now. Who knew back in those dark ages that it would come in so handy now.

Congrats on your well deserved awards. The publicist always forgets my awards. It doesn't mean we don't appreciate them

The hermit got to me, as that is one of my live deep in the bush, now power, no running water and most of phone! Elaine says to go ahead, but she's not coming! I guess i'll have to settle for the acreage 6 miles from town. The Lord blesses those that are satisfied with what they have.
Congratulations on the award!

congrats on your award! i loved reading all you had to say. i can't type. i am a 2 finger plucker. my kids never had a single typing class and they both type lie the wind. i am pretty much of a hermit. i live right in the city but i only go out when i have too. i am too busy at home to do much else. i've already traveled the whole world and i like staying home. i hate drug dealers but feel profoundly sorry for addicts and wish there was more help for them. i think it would be a horrible disease to live with. i've worked with many addicts over the years and have a very special spot in my heart for them. i am also a VERY protective mother. sometimes it drives my kids crazy but i think they secretly like it!

I must say being a hermit sounds nice. I like goats and other animals better than most people. It's so kind of you to share your award. Very nice information you shared about yourself. I too want to be a hermit even though I love traveling. I just haven't figured out how to take all the goats with me.

#6 - move to the Appalachian Mountains and be my neighbor, although if you are a hermit, and I'm a hermit, I suppose we'd just continue to blog to each other :-)

Interesting post! I must aspire to be a hermit because one of the things I loved about our place when we first saw it was that there wasn't a bunch of close neighbors!
