Green…and a blog award…

100_3007

You know, my most favorite color is green. I love everything outdoors. Even though I live in a state where green isn’t year around this is. Our yard is full of pine trees. Jim and I have planted at least 500 pine trees of all kind (mostly Jim because after the first 300 I sorta started watching). When the snow is butt high to a giraffe I can still see green. When we moved it it was an open field, I use to hay it with daddy every summer, hundreds of square bales of hay. Now it looks like this..

Still plenty of room for playing but plenty of green for me. These trees started out 20 years ago as things no bigger then a wee one and now look at them. Jim has a green thumb when it comes to his trees.

I received an award the other day from ANGIE. It’s the Sunshine Award. Thank you so much Angie, I am so excited.

There are rules of course to excepting this award and though I’m not really a great rule follower I’ll do my best.

The Rules…

1. Post the logo on blog.
2. Pass the award on to 12 fellow bloggers.
3. Link the nominees
4. Let nominees know they have won this award by commenting on their blog.
5. Share the love and link to the person you received this award from.

So first, thank you so much Angie for this award.

To pass this one to 12 fellow bloggers, well that’s a huge number so I’m going to do 5, it’s an easier number then 12 plus as many times as I see a blog award I don’t ever get to the bottom of their list of bloggers to share it with, I usually get the first 5 or so.

So here it goes…

1. Manzanita

2. Michele

3. Vi

4. Jeff

5. Mandy

Each of these bloggers are so different then the next. I love getting to meet and greet and learning about so many different people. When you have a moment check out these awesome people.

So it’s onward and upwards to a new week. As much as I loved last week I am hoping for a less busy one this week.

Take care my friends. Have a great week. God Bless you all.
