First, i'm getting increasingly busy here. I hope to be in the field seeding later this week. I'm working on equipment and trying to get things ready. Not to mention, there's still baby calves coming and i'm trying to get up a little earlier to get in at least a little bit of exercise and stretching. Anyways, i seem to be running out of hours in the day to get everything squeezed in.
I'm having some trouble keeping up the blogging pace that i had a month or two ago. I'm going to try to not get below two posts a week but i apologize if you come looking and there's nothing new here.
Second, to all my new bloggy friends, i'm sorry if i've fallen behind on the commenting. For the same reasons as in the first point, i'm having a bit of a time trying to keep up on all the new posts. I can usually try to squeeze in a minute or two to read the new posts on my phone but i like to put some thought into them before i leave a comment. Sometimes, i've forgotten to get back to leave a comment. I haven't forgotten about you, it's just the time thing again. I'm trying to catch up and keep in touch with you guys.
Then there's this.
|i've been given an award!|
My friend Pish Posh has bestowed upon me the most prestigious honor of a Liebster Award! Well, i'm not certain that it's actually prestigious but i think it's AMAZING AND AWESOME! I've been running about the house singing, "i've won an award, i've won an award!" (i had to wait until everyone was gone so i didn't look like a complete fool.) So what may you ask is a Liebster Award? It's this:
Liebster in German, means Dearest, Beloved, or favorite, and it's for bloggers with under 200 followers. Near as i can tell, these are the rules to follow when you receive one.
- Thank your Liebster Blog Award presenter on your blog.
- Link back to the blogger who awarded you.
- Copy & paste the blog award on your blog.
- Reveal your 5 picks.
- Let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
Now who shall i pass this award on to? I'd like to give one to everyone that i read! You are all so talented. But the rule says five, so, for my five, i decided to try to pick people who hadn't previously won. At least they aren't displaying the Liebster Award Button so i'm assuming they haven't been awarded yet. (Truthfully, i'm not really sure how to do that myself but rest assured., as soon as i figure it out, that sucker is getting a place of honor on my side bar.) Also, this is because i know how much getting this means to me and i want you all to share in the excitement. In no particular order, these are my five.
A Bozzo's Abbozzo I don't even know her name or what to call her. Sometimes she's Bozzo, sometimes she's Lady in Red. Occasionally she's even been Froggy. No matter what you call her, you should take some time to check out her blog. She lives in India but her family is in the States and is always interesting. Every time i come across a new blog to read, she's usually been there and already left a comment. She's always positive (except when she's hiding from lightning) and supportive of other bloggers and i think she deserves this.
Hammock in the honeysuckle or The slow Dripped Life I came across this blog sometime early in April during the A-Z Challenge. I bookmarked it because there was something about it that caught my attention. Over time, i found i was coming back to it again and again. Turns out, it was because it was comfortable and laid back there. From her music to her fridge magnet poetry, there's always something interesting going on. Her name is Carrie, and someday i'd like to have a cup of coffee with her.
Two Shoes in Texas Jossie is quite the interesting lady. She seems to be a bit of a contradiction because although she's a bit of a free spirit, she likes to spend part of her time squeezing off rounds on her handgun. Her, One Question Wednesday has given me something to think about on the few occasions that i've played along. Also, even though it's called, One Question Wednesday, she has a knack for stretching one into about five questions. She's a straight shooter, and i like her for that.
Workingdan Dan is a cigarette smoking, beer drinking, grilling mastermind who will shamelessly promote other bloggers through his artwork. He's recently just added a video rant to his blog which i hope becomes a permanent fixture there. He lives with his lovely wife Mrs.Workingdan, and kids, none of which who seem to bring him a cold beer so he has to do that for himself. If i ever have the chance to visit the Workingdan's home, i have to remember not to wander around just off the deck. Seems he's always peeing off of it.
J is for Joelle If it wasn't for Joelle, there's a pretty good chance there would be no ken-inatractor. She is the first blogger that i followed and i spent a great deal of time reading through her stuff and looking at her page to decide if i could do this or not. She's a single mother who's successfully parlayed her blog into a radio show, co-host gig. She's a strong independent woman and the only other blogger that i've actually met. ( i brought her some cookies at the radio station.) She's been quite supportive of me and has even on occasion, mentioned my meagre blog on her radio show. She's certainly worth checking out.
So there's my five. Truthfully, i would give awards to everyone that i read if it were my choice. You are all wonderful and i'm so happy to share this little part of your life. Thanks for that. :)
