I received this Versatile Blogger award from Chris over at Grow Fish Eat. He also has another blog where he is getting ready to start bee keeping,  Bees Make Honey. They are both terrific blogs about ..well..pretty much what the titles say! Check him out and I bet you'll be glad you did!


I am always honored when someone gives me an award but I usually do not participate in them much any more. This time however, because Texas is just about fried off he face of the Earth and there is really not much to post about, unless you want to hear me endlessly whine and gripe about the heat and drought and how I cannot do anything I love pertaining to homesteading because of a fore mentioned  baking heatwave and drought! No? Are you sure?  Because I am getting reaaaally good at it!OK then...I guess I will just have to tell you 7 things about myself.

Sooo.....let's see...
1.  I love watching the Beverly Hillbillies,to my son's horror!

2.  My son weighed 10 lbs 4oz at birth and he was not over due. These are obviously going to be all over the place random!

3. I am a cold weather person. Love the cold. I really love the cold North Sea. When I think of a paradise it    is never a warm tropical place,it is standing on a rocky cliff  watching the cold, grey waves roll... biting, sea  kissed wind blowing in my face....

4.Even though I was born in Texas and have lived here off and on over my life I do not consider myself a Texan,I have lived in many places and my heart lies elsewhere. I do however, love the Texas spirit and people...it is just to darned hot here for me,lol!

5.My eyes are dark brown.

6.My great great grandma was a Choctaw Indian and she was still alive when I was born.

7.I was born on a Good Friday. That is the Friday before Easter just in case anyone didn't know.

So there you have it ,7 totally random and boring facts about me! There is no way I can choose who to pass this along to because I have way too many blogging friends to try and pick just a few! So if you want to play along,consider the Versatile Blogger award yours!

It is so fun to learn about other people. I prefer the cold too. My eyes are hazel, sometimes green.

Happy day and Congratulations.

Sharon said...

You were definitely all over the place with your answers, guess that makes you versatile!

Does your Birthday move every year - like Good Friday does? ;-)

Oh, my, that boy was ready for school when you had him! Whew!

Have a nice evening!

Jill said...

Congrats to you! I'm thrilled you go this award. I loved learning more about you!

Debbie @ Swampbilly Ranch said...

Congrats! What a wide range of interesting tidbits.

Melodie said...

Sharon,
As far as I can remember ...I do not think it has ever been on Good Friday again!

Teresa said...

Congratulations! Love those facts, but it makes me wonder where you do consider home.

Pricilla said...

Hmmm, I love the heat, hate the cold. You should move here and I should move there then. That settles it!

T.@WhatWeKeep said...

Congrats! And I'm with you...I need some cold weather! Sweater weather year round, that's for me. Beverly Hillbillies...yay! Do you watch Green Acres, too? LOL

Chris said...

NO.3 !!!???

Let's swap locations! (shiver, shiver, sneeze)

Texan said...

Born in Texas? How did I miss that. :O)

Melodie said...

Texan, LOL! I was just barely born in Texas...I was born in Texarkana,which is on the border of Texas and Arkansas, and the hospital was on the Texas side of the city!

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Congrats on the award! I kind of stopped doing them too. Your facts are fun though. Your son was one big baby! Did you expect him to be that large or were your surprised by it?

Melodie said...

Lisa,
I knew he was big but the DR.said he would be about 7 1/2 lbs,lol boy was he wrong! They were actually taking bets in the delivery room once he was born on how much he weighed!

Laura said...

I like the random facts, it's fun to learn new things about you. I know it has been a brutal summer in Texas and I hope that the coming of fall will bring some sort of relief soon.

Lin said...

Well, that's funny that you live someplace so hot when you like the cold! I don't like the heat either. :(

I enjoyed your random thoughts today. :)

sophie...^5 said...

I can sooooooo relate to you about the heat...give me a blowing cold windy swept vista any day over oppressive heat. Today I have some windy shots to show so pop over and pretend you are on the hill with Jim!

Nancy @ A Rural Journal said...

I was born in Texas, but haven't lived there for years (since I was 8 yrs. old,) but I still consider myself a Texan. ;)

Congrats on your award, Melodie. Very well deserved!

Tina said...

Interesting randoms about you!

Kids and Canning Jars said...

Congrats on the award! I love the Beverly Hilliblies. I have not watchted them in some time. You seriously live in the wrong place if you like cold. Cold for us is like 45' Actually, that is like freezing.
