Versatile Blogger Award

I am very thankful to my friend at Taming the Goblin for passing the Versatile Blogger Award on to me!  I understand that there are rules involved.  They are (and I have copied and pasted from Taming the Goblin so I don't mess them up!), as follows:
The Rules

  • Thank the person that nominated you with a link back to them.
  • Tell everyone seven things about yourself.
  • Pass this award on to 15 newly discovered blogs and let them know that they've received an award



I am very thankful to have been chosen for this award, my very first!  And I am also thankful to The Monko (at Taming the Goblin) for her ongoing comments and encouragement on my blog. 

And on to 7 things about me:

1) I grew up on a farm in Saskatchewan.

2) Though I couldn`t wait to leave the farm, I realize that I have brought a farm attitude with me that I am sure I will carry for the rest of my life!  With that, I have a love of animals, plants, nature and a do-it-myself attitude.

3) I have two beautiful daughters, two great son-in-laws, two gorgeous grandchildren, and one wonderful husband who can be coaxed or bribed into (eventually) helping me with so many of my little projects. 

4) I know very little about blogging.  (That`s why it has taken me so long to post this post, it`s complicated!!!!)

5) I am a recovering perfectionist.  If I waited till I had blogging down perfect, there wouldn`t be mybuddiesandi.  If you've seen this, you can see I am recovering!

6)  I have operated a family daycare for ...hmmm, 19 years!  And I'm still learning each and every day!

7) I am truly grateful to The Monko who really encouraged me from the beginning, by commenting and sharing my blog.  It was really nice to know that at least one person was intrested in what I was saying.  I hope she forgives me for the ridiculously l-o-n-g time it has taken me to complete this!


And the blogs that I would like to pass the award on to are:

    1. I'm glad I wasn't the only one! And number 5, yeah, that is something that can drag me down. But every mistake is part of my recovery process, lol
