Two Blog Awards

I have recently been honored with two blog awards.

Leslie (In The Shadow of Juniper Hill) has awarded me the "Best Blog Award." Of course I am thrilled and honored. Thank you, Leslie!

The rules for accepting the award are as follows:
  1. Anyone awarded with this one must pass this “BEST BLOG” Award to 15 bloggers who he/she thinks have the best and greatest blogs.
  2. For the new awardee… To receive and accept this award, copy and save the award, then…
  3. Make a post in your blog about the award, like this one, but write in your own words, or at least a reasonable facsimile.
  4. In your post, mention the name of the blogger who awarded you, and include a link to their blog.
The second is the "Sunshine Award" from Alison (Yarn in my Pocket). I was just as delighted with this one as well. My thanks to you Alison!

To accept this award, I must:
1. Put the logo on my blog or within a post
2. Pass the award onto 12 bloggers
3. Link the nominees within your post
4. Let the nominees know they have received this award by commenting on their blog
5. Share the love and link to the person from whom you received this award!

I started this blog started because someone asked for pictures of our new place. In thinking about that, I reasoned that it would also be a good way for me to record our dreams, plans, research, and happenings. It would be a good way to document and keep track of our projects.

To be honest, it amazes me that anyone out there would be interested in our little homestead and what we're trying to do here. This is why every comment is cherished. And in those comments I've found kindred spirits, not to mention encouragement and good ideas.

Well, I think all the blogs I read are the best and the greatest! I know a lot of bloggers don't care to mess with awards, but I have found many of you through these links. For this award, I'm going to pass it on to bloggers that are inspirational to our homesteading interests.

And an award well deserved, done well and thought provoking. I know what you mean though. I put a widget on mine that tells me about visitors. As of today, I've had visitors from 48 countries!! Makes me scratch my head.

Thanks for the nomination. Your list looks a bit like my blog reader. I'm going to have to look through the ones I don't recognize. It's nice to find so many sites with interests in common.
