I'm A Winner!


I woke up this morning to discover that Ken over at at ken-inatractor had bestowed the Liebster Award on me.  That certainly started my day off with a much-needed smile!  Liebster in German, means dearest, beloved, or favorite, and it's for bloggers with under 200 followers.  THANK YOU, Ken, I'm honored to be included in this prestigious group!

Not long ago I followed Lady in Red over to Ken's blog and was immediately impressed with what I found there. Ken's a farmer up North in Canada. Being raised in the agricultural Midwestern plains of Dakota, that's a very familiar environment to me.  Not only does Ken grow grain and raise cattle, he's been known to raise a little Cain now and then too! :-)  Ken is actually a great writer, and his posts are always interesting and fun to read; he's a great commenter too!  With so many women bloggers on my blogroll Ken is a very welcome addition, we can always use a man's perspective - especially one who is an all-around great guy.  If you're looking for a new good read and want to learn a bit about life behind the barn, check out ken-inatractor, I guarantee you won't be disappointed!

These are the official rules that go with the award:
  1. Thank your Liebster Blog Award presenter on your blog.
  2. Link back to the blogger who awarded you.
  3. Copy & paste the blog award on your blog.
  4. Reveal your 5 picks.
  5. Let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
I'm supposed to tag five fellow bloggers with this award, but I"m not a tagger. If you're on my blogroll it already means that I think your way cool and what you write is worth my time to read.  It also means that you regularly torture yourself by reading my extremely long posts thru to the end! So grab yourself this award, paste it on your page, and go for it... you've earned it!

    2. Will be looking forward to it. I've met several new great bloggers via your blog Lady in Red, you have a fun bunch of folks hanging out there, and it's your brightness and warmth that attracts them - and me! :-)

    1. Thank you Lily! The timing of this award to coincide with my grumpy post about my sister was rather uncanny... not my best foot forward, but if I am anything it is honest, and this side is part of me too. I am a work in progress, and have yet to achieve perfection! :-)

    1. LOL Ken, I guess it works both ways then, and it really is nice to have some male voices chiming in now and then, otherwise it becomes a bit of a hen party! :-)

  5. When I read the title of your blog in my blog roll, my mind immediately said -- But of course you're a winner. You just are. Always. A winner.

    And thank you btw -- for your comment on not tagging -- I've not accepted awards because I don't tag and didn't know a gracious way to accept -- you've given me guidance. Thanks!

    1. Always such positive things to say Dear Friend, you make me smile!Yes, I am a winner, today a sneezing, sniffling, wheezing winner, but a winner no less! :-)

      It is just my personal preference not to tag and not to post awards in my side bar. I love and appreciate the recognition, but am not much for putting other folks under pressure to do something, other than when it comes to One Question Wednesday when I really do try to elicit some interesting responses! :-)
