The Versatile Blogger: Sharing the blogs I love

I have some of the best blogger friends, they never stop sharing their support for my little piece of cyber-space. Doug over at Carnivore Confidential  a professional Butcher with a witty blog has been so kind to share the Versatile Blogger award with me. We share a passion for all things wild from hunting wild game to spending free time cooking and foraging  in the mountains and streams of our prospective Countries of Canada and the U.S. So I have found a few minutes to try to pass along the love and send this award to those I really enjoy reading and  sharing time with, hope you like them too!

The rules for the Award are pretty simple….

1st .Thank the person or blog that nominated you…….. Thanks to Carnivore Confidential for thinking of me and my blog about living life slowly and fully every day.

2nd. List 7 things that you may not know about me. This is always hard for me, I forget what it is that I have shared here and what I haven’t. So forgive me if I am repeating things.

1. I raised in a restaurant family… my mother owned a small cafe on the Campus of the University of Colorado (Boulder, Co. USA) where I got to hang out in the summer. This is where I found my love for food and cooking.

2. I lost my father at the young age of 5 to heart problems.

3. I read almost everyday and never go anywhere without a novel tucked into my purse.

4. I have tattoos.. from years ago when I was young and wild and will add to them when I am old and wild.

5. My favorite ice cream is Butter Pecan. Really who does not love some kind of ice cream.

6. I started writing this blog while staying home taking care of a 77-year-old cancer Patient and a preschooler..you and this blog were my saving grace.

7. One of my first jobs over the summers while still in high school was working in a Butcher shop… yea I was a wrapper and set up girl for a three cutter shop that made its own sausage and brats. Now you see the connection to Doug and his meat tips blog.

3rd. share blogs that you think deserve this award. In my case I shared 10 and just want to say I have more that I love to read but these are ones that I think others should check out.

I read a lot of blogs and I love all of them and I even know some of the larger blogs do not accept awards. So I will not asks any bloggers to pass along the award but want to give a high 5 to a few that I have been really touched by. I want them to know I think a lot of what they do and what they write about. My blog reading covers a wide array subjects and life styles so hopefully you can find some thing that interests you. If any of these bloggers have time it would be great if you can share this award with others so we can read new blogs and make new friends. Just fallow the rules and send it on!

1. Dolly’s blog at Strange Remains is a forensic blog about strange and unusual crimes, tall tales, folk-lore and terrifying true events from our history and our world.

7. Eddie Two Hawks does not accept awards… but I just cant help but say that if he posted every single day I would try to read his wise, insightful, spiritual, beautiful, posts. They are the quite in an other wise noisy storm.

    I love to read. We moved in with my mother-in-law to help out (she lost her husband almost 2 yrs. ago) and there is so much to do I don’t have much time. I finally got a library card for this area (we moved from out of state) and stayed at the library for almost 3 hrs. looking around. My mother-in-law couldn’t understand how someone could stay 3 hrs. in a library. How can someone not stay 3 hrs. in a library:)

  6. I love that you began writing your blog to help keep some sanity in your life (I started that way too!). Thank you for mentioning the ol’ redterrain blog on here too. I was chuffed that you wrote such nice things. I’m going through the list of your recommendations too, so I can get to know you a little more. 🙂

    • Holly I really do love your blog… I live through you eyes and stories. I may never have the opportunity to travel “down under” so I travel there with you and your wonderful tails of people and places. You inspire me to look more closely at my own world and let the tails I find here come through.

      • Hopefully it only goes to show that it’s not all snakes and dust here…haha I’ve found many people assume it’s dangerous at every corner but it’s really not that often you run into a snake/deadly creature. I know what you mean, there are countries that I’d love to see one day but may never get the chance – in the mean time I look up thier photos and daydream. 🙂
