Over the past few weeks, I've received quite a few rewards from some very wonderful fellow bloggers, and I would be remiss to say that I've been quite a slacker on thanking them. For that, I apologize. So now it's time to take care of that, and I'm sure I've missed one or two. Please yell at me if it was you!
First, let's thank Jessica O'Neal, a wonderfully fun blogger who I have much in common with. She gave me the "Liebster" award.
“Liebster” is the German word for “dearest” and this award is given to new bloggers with fewer than 200 followers. There are a couple of stipulations for accepting the award.
1. Thank the person who awarded you and link back to them.
2. Pass the award on to 5 fellow bloggers and let them know.
Thanks have been given and now it's time to pass on the award.
1. Merry Farmer
2. August McLaughlin
3. Prudence MacLeod
4. Colin Falconer
5. Tim O'Brien
Next up is the Versatile Blogger award from the fantastic Prudence MacLeod. Thanks Prudence!
1. Thank the person who gave it to you.
2. List 7 random facts about yourself.
3. Pass the award along to 15 other deserving bloggers. Then you have to let them know they’ve won.
1. When I was younger, I really liked chocolate sauce on bread & butter pickles.
2. When I first brought my oldest cat, Josephine, home from the shelter, she spent three days holed up inside the space heater.
3. I have a cow that loves sugar cookies and chocolate chip cookies, but won't touch gingerbread cookies. Another loves oranges.
4. I have a huge pile of socks at the bottom of my bed from where I kick them off every night, and I have so many socks, I only need to wash the pile once every couple of weeks.
5. My favoritest song ever is "Got You Where I Want You" by the Flys, a one-hit wonder band from the 90s.
6. I have a ring on the second toe of my right foot that has been there since the summer of 2002 and has never come off.
7. My favorite type of cheese is muenster.
