Life Is Good

Recently A while back, Denise gave me a Life Is Good award. Things were so crazy busy (not sure if that's "good") and have stayed that way (pretty sure that's not "good" - we are worn plumb out) that I almost forgot. But it's a beautiful button and the questions are fun and when my summer wardrobe showed up via UPS yesterday, I remembered. And it made me smile. Which was probably the intent of the award anyway :-).

1. What would your prefect day consist of?

Well, it would probably not consist of 12 back breaking hours of yard work... I'm voting for washing a beautiful fleece and in between soaks, being able to sit down and spin, knit or weave something or read a good book.

2. How would you describe yourself if you were an item of clothing?

Ratty old faded, knees ripped out blue jeans (he sure was a cutie, eh?) with the bottoms frayed out. Come on - think about it - this is not a bad thing.

3. What hobbies are you currently working on?

Since I don't consider yard work a hobby, I guess I'm not working on anything. Sigh.

4. Walking in the woods in wellies or bare foot on the beach?

Too close to call. I LOVE both.

5. Have you ever hugged or sang to a tree?

I have not hugged a tree, nor sung to one, but I do talk to them and frequently give them a pat as I pass by.

6. Growing your own veggies or nipping to the supermarket.

Trying to grow our own, but wish the gardening fairy would just leave a basket of fresh food (and some EGGS - stupid Adventure Chickens) outside our door every day ;-).

7. Have you found anyone exciting in your family tree?

Interesting surely, but exciting? Hmmm - I don't know.

8. Slap up meal in a posh restaurant or fish ‘n’ chips from the wrapper

Definitely fish 'n' chips from the wrapper - preferably with a vegetarian option ;-).

9. Which element do you most resonate with, Earth, Air, Fire or water?

Can't decide - maybe a swirl of all?

10. Do you believe in fairies?

If they'd show up with the basket of veggies...

I think most of us, deep down, agree that life is good, so I'm passing this award on to anyone who'd like to join in. If you don't have a blog, answer the questions in the comments. I am going to single out The Skoog Farm Journal, Life on a Colorado Farm, and Front Porch Indiana as blogs that I recommend if you need a good dose of Life Is Good.

LOL, where did you get your new summer wardrobe? The four leaf clover one is perfect for you!

Four-leaf clovers are yours as rainbows to me. I would love to find one someday, of course you always find rainbows too.

When I told your husband about watching the 'funny sheep' post he told me funny was not the word he would use around the farm.

It sounds like you both are tired.

I like your upbeat summer wardrobe! Those shirts will be great to wear even on the craptacular days as a reminder that day being vertical and above ground beats the alternative ;-)

I enjoyed reading your answers to the Life is Good questions, and found them similar to what my own answers would be. Well, except for the growing the veggies part, as I am not allowed (skin disorder) to dig in dirt! I do wish I could meet you and the sheep sometime!
