Liebster Award from Green Man

Today I received a Liebster Award from Green Man who follows my blog.I was unfamiliar with this award but here is what I read about it-

For those bloggers and readers who are unfamiliar with this award, “The Liebster Award" is given to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. The word ” Liebster” comes from German and can mean the sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, most beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome.”

Thank you Green Man for your kindness.As a blogger with a quiet comment box I appreciate your thought.

And it looks like these are the rules to the award-

 Here are the Rules for this Award

Thank the person who nominated you.

When you receive the award, you post 11 random facts about yourself and answer the 11 questions asked by the person who nominated you.

Pass the award onto 6 other blogs (while making sure you notify the blogger that you nominated them!) You write up 11 NEW questions directed towards YOUR nominees. 

You are not allowed to nominate the blog who nominated your own blog!

You paste the award picture into your blog. (You can Google the image, there are plenty of them!)

I am not a very good follower or one to pass chain letters on But for this post I will go so far as to try to think of 11 random things about myself and to answer Green Man's questions.I am being honest here, I may never get around to passing this forward.

11 Random things about me:

1. I am highly competitive.Especially when it comes to boys/men.I can not stand the thought of them out doing me in any way.

2.I LOVE Kung Fu movies.

3. I am getting ready to build a moped for racing.It's that "can't let a boy beat me" thing again.

4.I always root for the underdog.

5.If I could eat mangoes and sticky rice everyday I would be very happy.

6.I don't like bodies of water I can't see to the bottom of.I am sure there are sea monsters under there.

7.I have been teaching myself how to fiddle.Move over Sherlock.

8.I am happiest when I am outdoors.

9.Once upon a time I wanted to be a Midwife.

10.I love my freckles.

11.I still have not given up the dream of living in a yurt.

Green Man's questions for me-

1. What inspires you to blog?
   When I started to blog there not many blogs out there sharing the information I do through my blog.So I figured why not do it myself,there had to be others out there somewhere searching like I was.Some posts are inspired by what I read all over the place,a project we have done or just me being random.
2. What advice would you give to other bloggers?
     Just keep at it if it is something you enjoy.Make it your own and use your own writing voice.

3. What is your favorite book?
   My favorite book is Mythago Wood by Robert Holdstock. I have read it once a year since I was 17.

4. If you won a million dollars what would you do with it?
   Buy 5 acres,go to school again,encourage Chance to find something he loves for work and travel.
5. If you could, would you go back to school and for what?
     I am currently working on going back to school to become  a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner.

6. What did you want to grow up to be when you were a kid?
      A dump truck driver.
7. Have you ever traveled outside of your country of origin?
     Nope.But we are working on getting Italy and Vietnam.
8. What is your favorite thing to make?
    Food and art,they both give me endless joy.

9. If you do magic, what kind do you use most often?
     Dear Green Man, as a person who lived in South East Asia you should know that magic is not spoken of with strangers.

10. If you garden, what is your favorite things about it?
      I love the whole process but the sore back part.I love feeling more connected to the Earth and our food.Working in the garden is like going to a temple for me,it can be peace and solitude for me.

11. What is the ultimate answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything?

 If we all simply showed others and the Earth love,kindness and acceptance everything would work out for the better.

Alright when I previewed this post there is something up with the font sizes.Being a bit dim when it comes to fixing things please just flow with me here.

I have a whole other post that will be coming in the next day or so.This past week has been productive here so there are things to share.



  1. I loved reading these things. I am only competitive with myself.

    1. Oh yeah I know that one too.I am also very house proud but mostly too busy to be as OCD as I could be over it.Like this evening the kitchen is a bit of a mess but I am thinking I don't care because spending the day outside was well worth it.
