An Award!

I have a friend who left me (sniff, sniff) years ago for the wilds of Oklahoma and her own little One Acre Homestead. Yesterday, she gifted me this award. The assignment that goes along with the award is to list 6 things I'm thankful for and nominate 6 other bloggers to receive the award.

6 Things I'm Thankful For:

1. A wonderful family, complete with handy hubby and super smart and funny (if spirited!) daughters

2. The bounty of things given by the earth. How great is it to put a skillet on to heat and then run out to snag a pepper here, a tomato there, from my own backyard?

3. The internet, which has been responsible for almost my entire education in sewing, gardening, cooking and preserving

4. The local library...never turn down a free education!

5. My house. I really do like the house we live in now. With the whole housing market/economic situation, I think too many people started looking at their houses as big piles of equity instead of what they really are....a roof over our heads where family can gather together and turn a simple structure into a home. Bonus points that it's half an acre in the middle of town--the best of both worlds for where we are in life right now.

6. Chocolate. Figured the last one should be a frivolous thing. Did you know Cadbury took Mini-Eggs, colored them red, green and white and labeled them "solid chocolate with a crisp sugar shell" for Christmas? And that Target had TONS of these beauties on the shelf for $0.69 a bag after Christmas? I do love me some cadbury mini-eggs.

And to tag other blogs. I'm only going to do 3, cause it's my blog and I can change the requirements if I want to ;-)
