Honest Scrap Award

Last week Faith from Lemonade Adventures so kindly awarded me with this interesting award and I feel quite honored to receive it. The award states, “You are a hard worker. Someone who takes the scrap out of life and builds things with it. Someone who has so much going on that others can see the evidence of it all around you. You are one who contributes mightily to life.” Now that is something I do not hear every day but truly appreciate! Thank you so much Faith.

As with most awards, the rules state that you must nominate 10 bloggers that are deserving of the award. I am sorry to say, but I must pass on that part of this award. I know it is really not playing fair and I apologize but my chicken self just cannot seem to nominate 10 blogs. I enjoy so many blogs and would hate to leave anyone out. I will however be a good sport and participate in the other half of this award that involves listing 10 things that your readers may not know about you. This part of the award sounded fun so here goes.

  1. I am the only one in my family of five that is left-handed. (That is of course if my 2 ½ year old daughter does not turn out to be. The jury is still out on that one!)
  2. I have been a vegetarian for the last 6 years. Health issues and animal welfare spawned my desire to become a vegetarian. Lately though I am reconsidering my diet and may change if I can find a local source of meat product that is raised and produced humanely.
  3. I have horrible allergies to everything it seems but the huge one is cats. Some people are deathly allergic to bee stings, well for me it is cats. And I hate it too. I cannot be near one without having a major asthma attack. It saddens me as I would love to have one for a pet. Instead I have two rabbits that I love to death.
  4. I believe my allergies and asthma help to spawn my interest in using herbs medicinally almost 20 years ago. I grew so tired of doctors and all the medications they would pump into me. Nothing helped my asthma, I only kept getting worse. I turned to other means of caring for my health and found it to be very empowering. Someday, when life and family (i.e. raising kids) permit it I plan on becoming a certified herbalist.
  5. I tend to be scatter brained with a million ideas swirling in my head at any given time.
  6. I am a major list person and am lost without them. (see #5)
  7. I am married to my high school sweetheart. It is kind of scary too. Whenever the two of us stop to think about it we are blown away that we have literally grown up together.
  8. I tend to be an insomniac (see #5) and my husband sounds like a broken record every night when he tells me to, “Try to get some sleep tonight.”
  9. I loved the Little House on the Prairie books when I was a child and sometimes wonder if I was born in the wrong century seeing that I love to do so many of the things that are mentioned throughout those books. But I do love the internet and indoor plumbing is very nice.
  10. I am dreadfully shy and writing this blog has been a huge challenge for me from day one. I like that it forces me outside of my comfort box and to be honest answering these questions was not at easy for me!

Once again thanks so much to Faith for passing this award on to me. She is truly deserving of this award and please be sure to visit her blog to find out for yourselves.
