"Happiness Is speechless."
                 George William Curtis


 I want to thank Alica at  Happily the cows! Alica has passed on the Stylish Blogger Award to me. I am grateful and would like you to go and check out Alica's blog. She leads us through her life on a real dairy farm. She tells us how things work, and different aspects of her fascinating life.
 I am actually speechless, but I must tell you seven things that you do not know about me. This is very hard  for me, anyone that reads my blog knows I am an open book. Well here goes
1/ I am never, and I mean never speechless, just ask anyone who knows me. I am also very loud. I am almost always happy.
2/ Before I started this blog I never even knew what a blog was.
3/ I carry my camera, and either a pen and paper, or my MP3 voice recorder (a welcome gift from a friend) with me wherever I go. I have been known to stop driving, walking, or even talking in the middle of a conversation, to record, or write down something that pops into my head.
4/ I never sit to long, I am a little hyper active. Picture "The Energizer Bunny"
5/ I stole a package of balloons from the corner store when I was six. My Mother made me take them back and apologize to the big, scary store owner. I have never stolen anything ever again.
6/ I can operate every piece of machinery on this farm but choose not to inform My Hero about all of them lest he turns it into my job. I do love round baling hay, except for the breakdowns.
7/ My black and white rubber boots have a leak, and I am a little sad.

OK there you have it. Now I must pass this award on to some fellow bloggers.

  This and That   Susan  takes awesome photos and always has a great sense of humour.

Hidden Meadow Farm a fascinating look at farm life, and ideas from Nova Scotia. Canada.

Maas Life Journal She always has something interesting to share and makes me laugh.

Heritage Farm Girl  Household tips to save you money and the struggles of a modern day farm woman.

"Go West" Feral Woman This woman brings laughter to even the most somber.

OK  I wanted to give this award to all the blogs I follow, and all my followers blogs. Please visit these blogs, and click on my followers blogs. There is a wealth of information, and wonderful people to meet and explore in this blogger world. I appreciate my blogger family they make me smile I am sure they will do this for you also.

 Thank you Alica.

 ( Never speechless me.)



  1. Congrats B! It's fun to learn a little more about you. We'd get along just fine, I'm a good listener. ; )

  2. deserve this! I think one of the reasons I enjoy reading your blog so much is that you are such an open book!
    I like #6...don't let your Hero know all that you really can do! (I don't know how to start the tractor that Jim uses to haul manure...and I don't want to learn! :) )

  3. Whoohoo Congrats!!! And we should definatly get you some new boots!


  4. Well done. You deserve it. I'm glad you're so dedicated with your camera and blog. Sorry about the boots. Yes,you do deserve some new ones. Off to check out your recommendations.

  5. laughed at the stealing the balloons. when i was about 4, i slipped a blue sugar-coated gumball into my winter coat, waited until we were home, then ate it (but the blue tongue gave me away). my older brother convinced me i was going to be caught and sent to jail. i never 'shoplifted' ever again!!! :)

    congrats on your award! very very well deserved!!!

    Also a great big thank you for the honour of accepting an award. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think one would come my way. I'm just an ordinary housewife with all the ordinary feelings we all share. I have met some fantastic people along the way and meeting and making friends like you, through blogging has been my lifeline. Big hugs my friend.
