I know I hinted that there would be a post on the illumination of the chicken coop, but since Paul did
I've also been working on "first" project the past two weeks. And I'm dying to show you all the progress, but since it's a birthday gift for a friend (and looks like it's going to be a slightly-belated gift at that), I can't show you quite yet! But I wanted to let you know that "I know something you don't know" and tease you just a little about it. Ha.
Then I've been trying to do work outside since the weather has been so nice. You know, like raking leaves, cleaning out the garden and burning brush.....things that should have been done like three months ago. I'm a procrastinator. Big time.
But here are the things I need to post so I don't forget about them. Forgive me for lumping them all in one blog post, but I need to get 'er done or it'll never get done!
I've been recently awarded the Liebster Award from Pioneer Preppy over at Small Holding.
Although I like to think of our family as being of the "Prepared" or "Preparing to be Prepared" kind of folk, this guy has it down to a science. He does a regular posting on how it really is in his neck of the woods, has product reviews for electronic-y things (which I know nothing of), but also raises bees; how's the for diversification? And for goodness sakes, he's got a Prep Level Chart that includes "Zombies inside the wire". Oh, and you got to scroll down to the bottom of his blog page; there's a great kitty picture!
The Liebster Award is one of those Pass it On kind of awards. Here are the details in a microscopic nut shell: Pass it on to five other deserving (exactly what "deserving" means is up to you I suppose) bloggers, linking their blogs on your page. They will then in turn pass it on to five more bloggers and the vicious cycle continues. Although I tend to view things like this as a blogosphere chain letter, it is a great way to find other blogs out there (and add to my mile-long list of followed blogs!).
And to think that "The Lieb" was only one of two internet-bloggy-award-thingies I was the recipient of this week, the other being one new to me:
This one was bestowed upon me by the SciFiChick over at Bacon & Eggs. She's a fellow Liberty Loving, Gadsden-Flag-Waving prepper and just moved to her own little slice of heaven.
So here are five bloggers that I'm going to pass on the double-awards to and that I'd think you'd like to meet:
Yukon Mike at Living Prepared
Hoosier Girl over at Blessed Little Homestead Life
Lisa at Ewe's Crazy & So is I!
Tom with his Worms-a-Crawling Farm
Sharon at Fitzgerald's Family Farm
And to those five I just
There are other bloggers I'd highly recommend, but some I've already passed on awards to and some of them aren't into the "Blog Award" thing. Of course, if you really want to know what bloggers I think highly of, just check out my reading list on the left side of the screen.
Part Two will follow shortly.
Congrats on your double-whammy of awards! I'll have to check out your awardees' blogs! :)ReplyDelete
I had been trying to find out what "Liebster" even means, before I went forward about it...but I guess you made other choices in the mean time. No worries, and congrats to the award recipients!ReplyDelete

OMGosh Laura, did I say I was going to nominate you and then DIDN'T? Not that you're not worth nominating, of course! Now I'm going to go crazy wondering what I did!!!Delete
LOL, please do not go crazy! You left a comment on a post on my blog a couple days ago about it. I didn't (still don't) know what Liebster means, and was doing research and all. Seriously, no worries! Why, I'm hardy hurt by it at all....Delete
OK, here's where it...no...*I* get stupid. It was another blogger who contacted me....with the same award! I am so embarrassed! Please forgive me, and I sincerely apologize for any wierdness or brain-wracking this caused you! I saw the award graphic and got my own wires crossed (which happens a lot). I'm so sorry! Proof yet again that it's best to just ignore me...Delete
"Holly Crap, Batman!"
My first award and it's a double award at that!
Thank you (TWICE!) for the awards and as soon as I figure out how to fill the requirements of acceptance, I will bestow the same to other Bloggers!
And this is my LUCKY day! Because I also Won the "Seed Give-A way" from Lariene Evernman over at "Common Sence Homesteading!
So, it has been a WIN, WIN, WIN Day for me!
I'm a LUCKY BOY!!
Tom, I think you just find five other bloggers to bestow the award upon (and let them know they "won", I haven't gotten around to that part yet).Delete
Sounds like some great blogs to check out!ReplyDelete
Wow! Thank you, thank you, thank you! I can't wait to pass those on! :)ReplyDelete
