Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect.

It's learning to look past life's imperfections

Feelin the Love

I received this award from Janelle of

With this statement....
This award is given to the writers of blogs that “are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends.
They are not interested in self-aggrandizement.
Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated.
Please give more attention to these writers.
Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.”

Janelle is the Mama to a young family running a new ranch.
I really enjoy reading her blog. Her simple honesty in sharing the ups-&-downs of
of establishing & running a family business from the ground up.
I found her blog by way of another.
You know, the oh, that looks good,.... click on a new blog with leads to another and another
I'm sure glad I kept clicking!

The second is from Karyn of "Candabrby Garden"
with the following statement:
1) Say thanks and give a link to the presenter of the award
.2) Share "ten honest things" about myself
.3) Present this award to 7 others whose blogs I find brilliant in content and/or design, or those who have encouraged me
.4) Tell those 7 people that they've been awarded HONEST SCRAP and inform them of these guidelines in receiving it.
So, Janelle & Karyn I'm honored! Thank you!
10 Honest things.......
1. I'm always late...I can start out and hour early and...ohhh bright shiny object....and I'm gone....late again and trying to figure out what happened
2. I loose focus very easily...right now I have 5 knitting projects & 3 sewing projects on the kitchen table, laundry waiting to be folded, yarn dyeing, & yarn drying.......and here I am blogging!
3. I have a cluttered & messy home.
But, I generally know which layer to look under....as long as no one moves things
4. I have a hard time saying no
5. If a person hurts a family member of mine, they are on my s&!% list for a long time..
even after I say forgive them.
6. I am not a good Catholic....I have to many questions concerning the Church,
but not about God.
7. I've never seen my eldest grand child
8. I'm one of those drivers that zoom past you and you shake your head at.....and yes I'm on a first name basis with the majority if the Sheriffs Dept now.....but I'm running late!
9. My husband is my best friend & is the most honest man I know,
10. I'm a list maker...for everything...so I don't forget
So for the Honest Scrap Award...
Homesteading Housewife
All because they keep it real. Life's not fair some times but, how we handle it makes a difference
Friends Award
Because I want to! They are others I consider good "friends" (or, they are the daughter of my High School best friend! Hi Sarah!)


  1. Thanks :) I'm glad you kept click too :) I wish I remembered how to knit and your 10 things almost describe me to a T, lol :)

  2. Thanks Katie! Your 10 things made me laugh :)

  3. I think after reading your 10 that we would get on really well irl. I think the only thing that stops our house from been full of clutter is my husband just cannot cope with it. He likes rooms to be empty.

    Thanks so much for the award.

  4. Thanks, Katie! Yeah, I know lifes not fair, but heck we keep trying anyway! And by the way, keeping it real, working the next 5 of 6 days 12 hours shifts!

  5. I am humbled.

    Now, to start my list... :o)

  6. Woot woot! Thank you so much! I feel like I don't even deserve it since I've been so absent lately. I have four things I want to blog about so I will have to buckle down and get to it! Problem is the only internet time I've had lately is when I'm pumping which only leaves one free hand to type (which takes forever). Joel is busting my butt right now!

  7. Great list, We actually have something called Rosebrook standard time, we tell those who are habitually late that the event starts an hour before it actually does, then we know they will be ontime. Only I think they have caught on, either that or they are gettin worse! About the staycation, e-mail rosebrook_kary@netzero.com
    Shh, it's a secret!

  8. thanks for including me on this list! i feel flattered! :)


Hey! Thanks for stopping in I love hearing from my bloggy friends!
