Nothing like an unexpected accolade from a friend to brighten up your day. Modern Day Redneck
nominated me for the Liebster award. The icing on the cake was that he referred to me as his 'teacher' when it seems to me I've learned a lot more from him than the other way around! But it sure was a bright spot in my day and now I get to pay it forward.
Here are the rules:
1. Copy and paste the award on your blog.
2. Link back to the blogger who gave you the award.
3. Pick your favorite blogs with less than 200 followers, and leave a comment on their blog to let them know they have received the award.
4. Hope that the five blogs chosen will keep spreading the love and pass it on to five more blogs.
It's hard to choose just five from the many that I read every day. But here are my five:
Lamb of Frippery Farm
who I first met through the chatroom. A world class lady who carves a homestead out of the west Texas desert ...quite a feat in itself. But she also bravely wrangles teenagers and an ever growing menagerie as her Darlin' Man seems to bring home a new critter every time she lets him out of her sight.
Humblewife of Double Nickel Farm
who is the epitome of all things wholesome and good. She loves the Lord and embraces all her roles ...wife, mother, homemaker, homesteader ...with grace and humility and enthusiasm.
KX59 and Southern Belle of Bells A Ringing
are a husband and wife team, emphasis on team. They are 'on the same page' and yet autonomous in their perspectives when they each post on the shared blog. Sometimes serious, sometimes humorous and sometimes downright hilarious ...but always well worth the read.
Melissa at Kids and Canning Jars
is a homeschooling mom with a knack for canning and all things frugal. She cans hotdogs ... who'd have thunk it possible? She dehydrates citrus ...again ...I never would have thought of that. Maybe I've just led a sheltered life in my homesteading ventures so far, but I always look forward to her new posts. I just know I'm going to have an 'a-HA!' moment!
Last but not least, is Kate at The Craftivist
who is one talented lady! She can knit and crochet and sew. If it's crafty ...this lady can do it. She even did a post on making homemade Bouncy Balls
...how fun is that?!?
If you are on my blog roll but not on the above list, please know that I read you every time you post and choosing just five for the list was really hard.
