I have been tagged with an award.


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.

This award was given to me by my very first subscription, Tracey, of Peaceful Acres. She is another awesome lady who is going it alone, as Michael and I are. She does some great things and posts about them on her blog, which I get to learn from. She'd make a fun and interesting neighbor to share ideas with, and she's got beautiful grandkids.

When you are awarded the Honest Scrap award here are the things you should do. (I am keeping in mind it is the middle of growing season and all of you may not have the time) First, you have to tell your readers 10 things about you they may not already know, but are true. Second, you have to tag 10 people with the award. Third, you have to let the people you've given the award to, know that they've received this award from you. Finally, make sure you link back to the person who awarded you.

1. I’m a down-to-earth dreamer. I always have some sort of big idea I’d love to do that takes about a billion dollars, while I happily go about my work for the day.

2. It took me til the age of twenty to get the courage to have my ears pierced.

3. I do Sudoku to put myself to sleep at night.

4. I would love to have a dozen or more children.

5. I have always had very long hair all my life, except for an ugly short shag phase in the 70s that my mother forced me to get.

6. My favorite movie that I’ve watched the most is the original Parent Trap.

7. The only water I have ever liked to drink was from our California well when I was a child.

8. My first ambition was to be a jockey. But I grew to be five foot eight.

9. I have had only one romantic relationship in my life.

10. I am happiest when things are neat and organized.

Now, for the ten blogs I nominate for this award, I choose these.

The Never Done Farm

Farm Girl Cyn

Brambleberries in the Rain

Apples of Gold

The Self-Sufficient Life

Life on A Colorado Farm

The Jersey Homesteader

Worms and Flowers

Simply Canning Updates

This & That Homestead

Enjoy these lovely ladies and their blogs!




  1. Thank you Faith for the award*blushing*. I'll get this posted sometime this week. Life would be dull if we didn't have challenges and an award for making something from these challenges is such a blessing.

    Blessing to you and Michael this week.

  2. Aww, thank you for the award. I'm so sorry, I don't do memes, please don't take this as a slight, it is nothing personal at all.

    Your list is so funny! My ears aren't pierced. I'm a tall girl too and it definitely ruined some of my ambitions. I've never dated a man taller than me! Mothers should never force hair cuts, I still remember when my mom "trimmed" my bangs, not only were they on a angle, but were was a big chunk missing in the middle. LOL! She's lucky I was nine and couldn't plot revenge!

  3. Thank you so much for the nice write up. I wish so much that we were neighbors. Wow there would be nothing we could not do!!!

  4. What a deserving award for the hard working lady you seem to be Faith!
    I am honored to have you nominate me in return. I do not normally participate in awards seeing that I would want to give them to all the great blogs I read. I will however try to follow the rules and list my ten things later on this week- that is if I can steal some more minutes from my ever so busy days! :)

  5. Kelle,

    You look so good in pink. LOL Looking forward to learning some secrets. ;)


  6. Jo,

    Oh no, I don't take it personally at all. "Memes" - is that a typo or a term I've never heard?

    They do take a lot of time. I've never done one before. I'm one of those people who doesn't forward emails, so I understand.

    Well, you had a "mod" hairstyle before it was even cool. Truly you were 'cutting edge'. ;)


  7. Tracey, we'd have some fun adventures, for certain!


  8. Cynthia,

    I will look forward to reading your ten intriguing entries. No worries on not passing it on. The object is to have fun and do what pleases you. :)

    By the way, the description of the award, I wrote for the ladies I was passing it on to. It came without a description to me, so it could have meant something entirely different! Hmmmmmm..... LOL


  9. What a suprise! I am honored.
    This may take awhile, with all the requirements.
    Thanks again.

  10. It's surprisingly time consuming, isn't it! LOL

    I will look forward to reading your 10 interesting items. :)



I always enjoy hearing from others. If you become a regular commenter, I'll assume you are being friendly and pretty much comment regularly right back. :o) God bless and have a terrific day!
