Shucks You people are too damn kind

A date thingy? Ah! Calendar

January 2013


Yes, you guessed it, a nice man over at thematticuskingdom (Sir djmatticus) has kindly nominated me for ‘The Versatile Blogger’ award. I did explain to him that I’ve tried to keep my versatility hidden from my husband, but it’s lucky for me that he doesn’t read my blogs, or I’d have a lot of explaining to do.

So, what is this award all about.

Versatile means having many uses. (adjective)

An example of versatile is the ability of a Kitchen Aid mixer with many attachments. (example taken from an online dictionary)

Okay, I know I’m a dab-hand in the kitchen, but really!

Right, enough of this nonsense, let’s get down to business.

  • Display the Award Certificate on your websitesee above
  • Announce your win with a post and link to whoever presented your awardgive me a chance, pushy. Okay, done
  • Present 15 awards to deserving bloggersbloody hell, who do I choose? And how the hell do I find them!
  • Drop them a comment to tip them off after you’ve linked them in the post nah, let them struggle to find the link
  • Post 7 interesting things about yourselfyou really don’t know me
Without further ado, here are my first 5 ‘Kitchen Aid Mixer’ nominees. Yep, you’ve got it, I’m doing them in 5’s. if not, this damn post will go on forever.
  1. Enchanted Seashells… Confessions of a Tugboat Captain’s Wife – in her own words… beguiling pearls of wit, wisdom and whimsy-with attitude. Couldn’t say it better myself.
  2. Apprentice, never Master – again in her own words… I am a writer and an unabashed apprentice, always learning and never finished. This girl is the most versatile of versatile I know. Check out her amazing stories and you’ll see what I mean.
  3. dmgartphoto – amazing artwork and photography, give it a look. I insist.
  4. sethsnap – an everyday world snapper. His photos are to die for, and strangely enough, versatile.
  5. 300wordlimit – in her words… get in, get on, get out. Brilliant what you can write with 300 words.
Well, that’s my first five. Whether they accept the award is another matter. The decision is theirs. Part 2 on Monday. Yes I’m making you wait. I will also write my thanks to Sir djmatticus and the 7 interesting things about myself on the last post.

    Sarah, you put a smile on my face! I truly enjoy your work too. What’s funny is my husband doesn’t read my blog either. I don’t think he knows the name. Haha. I was afraid to start The Reluctant Chef posts as he may think I want to learn to cook. Cheers to a wonderful day, and thanks again for the nomination/award.

  2. Thank yo so very much! I really appreciate the kindness! I save these to do when my tugboat man is gone and I have a lot more time so I’ll work on it in a couple of weeks–don’t think I’m procrastinating!

    I’ve always wanted this award. Lucky girl, you!

  4. Aw, shucks indeed. Thanks, Sarah! And congratulations. This is a well deserved award.
