A big thanks to Angie at Children in the Corn
for passing this award on too me and the rule is to pass it on.
There are lots of blogs out there I enjoy but here are just a
few that I will pass it on to.

* Wiked Awesome Parenting
because she makes me laugh out loud.

* Coast Rat because his kind heart and volunteer efforts blow me away.

* Country Boy because he is my son and why wouldn't I love his blog.

* Living The Road Less Traveled because Jodi is a beer drinking Mainer (oh yeah and a sweet little Momma)

* Throwback at Trapper Creek
because Nita is a wealth of knowledge, I always learn something new when I read her posts.

P.S. No obligations to pass this along!

Also another thanks to Angie at Children in the Corn for mailing this out to John all the way from Michigan. Maybe we can tackle this project over the winter because it is looking like we could really use it sooner than later. Not a good fall project because nothing gets done in the fall because "It's hunting season."

Also thanks to City Girl for the pears, as you can see we ate a bunch before I could take a picture. They are so yummy!! We ate lots as is and I made a pear crisp last night. Thanks again! City Girl is a regular commenter on my blog (and personal buddy). I have been trying for months to get her to start her own blog. She has agreed to be a guest blogger here and share some of her secrets to saving money at the grocery store. I am still waiting for her post. No pressure Amy!

Monday update: I have been doing cardio 2-3 times a week and finally picked the weights back up. TRYING to watch what I eat and cut back on diet pepsi ( I'm an addict). Attempting to eat more homemade/whole foods and less processed junk.

I am behind on reading others blogs and responding to comments. Sorry :(
Took about 150 pictures this weekend....I will be sharing when I have more time!

Well Thank you for that honor. I am glad that I can get someone to laugh, because as you know, we all can use a little comic relief in these times! The wonderful thing about blogs is that you can be healed, inspired, informed, or stress relieved by people you don't even know. It is a source of so much! So thank you, and I look forward to your blog with my coffee as well. Take care, and keep on typing! (sorry I had to delete the other, I found a couple horrible spelling errors! ooops.)

Jodi said...

Yeah, no pressure! I am working on a couple of different drafts and trying to find a balance between informative and entertaining. Stay tuned...and remember, you asked for it!

Erica said...

Congrats, I love your blog also. So deserving :) The pears look very good!! I made some pear jam a while back and it's actually very good. You should try!

Here from Coastrat suggestion. And I sooo thought that was a gag photo with the chicken tub build it yourself.....Ha!

Then I read down further to see all those baby chicks....

WHAT are you going to do to 'em???

Country Girl said...

Coast Rat, Nita, Pie and Jodi well deserved!
Nita I wish I was your neighbor too!
City Girl, a are too funny.
Erica, I have never made jam maybe because I am not a big fan of it. I have heard there is nothing like homemade though...someday!

Kathryn and Ari said...

Thanks so much for stopping by "Out With Ari." I've really enjoyed your site, and I'm so glad I arrived in time to congratulate you on your award--it looks much deserved.

I'm so glad to meet another Maine gardener--we intrepid souls have to stick together!
