I won!

I won! I won!

My local blogging friend Wendy, (also a fellow CSA member) passed out awards today and I got one!
I am surprised, as I don't think of my blog as anything special.
I mean, I LOVE blogging and sharing recipes, chicken stories, my faith...
I just never really think about it being anything out of the ordinary.

So now, as a recipient of this lovely award, I am to pass on 7 interesting things about myself that you might not know about.
THAT'S the hard part, cause I let you all know pret' near just about everything!

1. In the past 10 years I have: ran 2 5k's, took piano lessons, taught myself to sew, knit, crochet, make soap, taught a cooking class, helped build our farmette, taken in several stray kids,....

2. The only movies I watch are comedy/romance....(except for a couple documentaries, like Food, INC.)

3. I pretty much don't drive in the winter...hate the snowy and icy roads. (which is why I chose winter to have knee replacement surgery)

4. I love my local library and my librarians. The library has been one of my all time favorite places to go to. Even when in elementary school! And I always have 2 or more books going at the same time. Right now I am re-reading "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle" (SO good!), "This Organic Life", and the latest copy of Mother Earth News.

5. I start LOTS of projects, but am really bad at finishing them. There's unfinished aprons in my sewing room, unfinished knitting in my knitting bag, and hundreds of un-filed recipes in my recipe bin.

6. Farmboy and I met 41 years ago, when I was just 16, got married just after I turned 18, and will be celebrating our 39th wedding anniversary this fall. Yes, that makes me 56. YIKES!

7. I just celebrated my born-again birthday on Feb. 15. I got saved (born again) way back in 1978, with Farmboy following just a very few short months later. Amazing grace.

And now you know perhaps a bit more about me than you did before!

And tho I am supposed to pass this on, I simply can't.
Cause there would be 100 of you I would give this to.

xoxo,
Cindy

You had knee replacement surgery? I'd like to know more. I was going to have both done last year, and they got better after fasting...God was gracious.
I also just like comedy and romance movies.
Congrats on the award.

Lovely to have a peek into a few unknown things about you Cindy! You are so right about God's amazing grace! How wonderful that your hubby was saved nearly at the same time as you...God is gracious to us isn't He?

Blessings,
Camille

Glad you got the award. It allows us to get a peak into your very interesting and busy life. Ouch! knee replacement...Sounds SOOO painful. My knees feel like they are going bad. Ya know? stairsteps get harder, crouching down and getting up makes little pains shout out in the kneecaps! yikes.
I feel like we are sisters with all that you revealed! I know we are in Christ. Happy birthday late on your eternal birthday!! Hugs!

Congrats on your award! You and your blog are definitely worth celebrating and looking forward to!
Love the Keith Green tunes....he speaks still today, just as he did in 1984 when I first heard him. I had ordered a tape(the one with him holding a lamb over his shoulders) It came right before I left the house to go to my after school job at a nearby restaurant. I cried at the piercing beauty of it, and had to regroup before clocking in!
Thinking of you in your recovery from knee surgery. All the rehab will be so worth it in the end. Amazing what can be done these days.
Thank you for the gift of your acqaintance. God bless you.
Your bloggy friend,
Jen
