Versatile Blogger Award

I was so excited to open my blog the other day and find that I had been nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award!  Thank you so much to the Educated Unemployed Indian for this nomination.  If you get a chance hop  on over to the blog and check out the photography and inspirational quotes.

So, what is the Versatile Blogger Award?

According to Google:

ver·sa·tile
ˈvərsədl/
adjective
  1. 1.
    able to adapt or be adapted to many different functions or activities.
    “a versatile sewing machine”
    synonyms: adaptableflexibleall-aroundmultifacetedmultitalentedresourcefulMore

  2. 2.
    archaic
    changeable; inconstant.

What are the rules?

If you are nominated, you’ve been awarded the Versatile Blogger award.
  •  Thank the person who gave you this award. That’s common courtesy.
  •  Include a link to their blog. That’s also common courtesy — if you can figure out how to do it.
  •  Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly. ( I would add, pick blogs or bloggers that are excellent!)
  •  Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award — you might include a link to this site.
  •  Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.

My attempt at rule following:

  • Many thanks to Educated Unemployed Indian for this award – what a great way to start the day!
  • Head on over to the blog – there’s something for everyone!
  • Nominate  other excellent bloggers for the award.
    1. I am a fairly small blog so I don’t want to keep re-nominating the same sweet bloggers each time for fear of reaching creepy fan-girl status.  (BUT, if you haven’t checked out Cheeky‘s Bicycling page, Anthony’s Perfect Moments, Everyday Strange or Michael Jordahl‘s poems, you’re seriously missing out).
    2. Feeding My Addiction Book Reviews always posts something that gets my attention 🙂
    3. Exquisite Life strives to find the humanity in this world, posting on topics varying from religion to self-actualization to war.
    4. Just Drive Will You can go from shockingly hilarious to seriously on point, a versatile blogger for sure.
    5. Ryan O’Connell’s Giddy Up America is pretty good.  Last night the good Lord cut electricity for our entire neighborhood just as Arie was about to publicly ditch his fiance on national television.  Ryan confirmed that Arie did, indeed, continue with the douche bag break up.  At least I didn’t have to watch it.
    6. Elly V has a variety of reading reviews.
  • Seven Things About Myself:
    • I asked my son, “What is something about me that nobody knows?”  His reply: “You’re smart.”  LOL!  Not sure if that’s a good thing or not… 😉  He then added, “You type very fast.  Does anyone at work know that you type?  Because they probably can’t see your fingers flying so fast.”  Well, there’s that I guess.
    • I then asked my daughter.  Her reply, “You’re a bad cook.”  True.  Very much true.  I once managed to put pizza in the oven with the cardboard still attached, burn spaghetti noodles to the edge of the pot, and create inedible Angel Food Cake.  Didn’t know that was possible before that day…
    • I’ve put well over a hundred miles on my treadmill so far this year.  I can’t wait for the weather to clear so I can feel the ground beneath my tennis again!
    • This is how my brain works: Seven, seven things about myself.  That’s a lot.  My son is seven.  Maybe that’s something.  I created a human, a human boy being that is now seven.  What does that say about me?  I am superwoman.  I create humans, with a little help of course.  That maybe sounds a bit arrogant.  What if I couldn’t have kids?  That would be so heart breaking.  What if one of my readers can’t have kids and wants one?  That would be heart breaking.  Not going there.  Back to the drawing board.  Seven, seven, seven, sleven, speven, heaven.  I want to get to Heaven some day, but I decided I am not quite ready to leave my earthly family just yet.  Boy that’s a long story to get to how I know that for sure.  A few near death experiences in the same week will clear that answer up for ya in a hurry.  or did it?  Yes.  I definitely don’t want to leave my kids momless.  Crap.  Back to the kids.  The thing I was trying to avoid.  Full circle.  Hamster wheel.  Treadmill.  I like my treadmill.  I like outside better.  Well, shit.  This isn’t going very well.  Maybe I’ll make a trip to the kitchen and get inspired.  Hopefully not by spaghetti noodles or pizza, though.  Those are kind of ruined for the day…
    • I asked my husband the same question.  I am afraid his answer will be inappropriate for a public blog… lol.  I’ll keep you posted.
    • Before I went back to work last year, we were pretty sweet homesteaders.  Which, for our family, means that 90% of the food in our freezer was either raised or grown ourselves.  A big undertaking, but totally cool for a while.
    • I was one time outrun in a local Fun Day 5K by a guy with a neck brace.  *Not my proudest moment*

Well, I think that’s it.  I’ll try to post on the nominee’s blogs today.  Thanks again, EUI!
