Versatile Blogger Award

I have been nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award by Stacey @ Real Southern Living. I'm touched that she found my blog so interesting and versatile. I have to admit, I had to look up the word "versatile" to get the true meaning. 
Versatile ;  embracing a variety of subjects, fields, or skills
If you choose to accept you will need to do the following:
  1. Grab the Versatile Blogger button.
  2. Thank the person who nominated you.
  3. Include a link to their blog.
  4. Share 7 things about yourself.
  5. Pass along the love! Nominate 15 of your favorite blogs.
  6. Inform each nominee with a comment on their blog.
  7. In the same post include this set of rules.

    Well, here goes.
    1.  To start with, I had no idea what a blog was?  I was surfing the web and I came across them by accident. To my surprise I found people out there with the same interests as mine.
    2.  I live on a farm with my husband, mother, and various animals. The farm was originally  my grandparents on my mothers side. 
    3.  I have been off of work for three years which I then started my second career in trash collecting and refurbishing. Since being laid off my mom has to have someone at home with her most of the time. 
    4.  I suffer from fibromyalgia and in the process of getting disability. It can be so debilitating at times that all I can do is sleep or sit. I do have good days  but then I have no energy to try to complete some of my projects. 
    5.  We have three dogs, (2 Border Collies and a Rat Terrier), 4 cats, various small birds , a Goffin cockatoo, and 22 chickens. The dogs, cats, and birds are all rescues.  We raise the chickens for their eggs and entertainment.
    6.  I love gardening, we have done so since I was a child. I learned from my mom and dad. Have quite a few large gardens for vegetables and quite a few perennial gardens. I have had to scale back quite a bit due to the Fibro.
    7.  A few years down the line we have plans on moving to Florida near my in-laws in order to get away from the cold. I felt so much better when we visited due to the heat. 
    Well, hope I didn't bore  you too much. Now on to the next 15 Versatile Bloggers!
