Queen of ALLL things! Who Me??

I usually don't like to accept awards being mostly modest and all, BUT this one sparkles so I could not ignore it. Sparkles are good. For some reason I love the sparkles. I guess maybe it reminds me of a Christmas tree or fireworks. THANK YOU Kim at The UnGourmet for bestowing me with this award.

For this award I have to say 7 things that are Awe-Summm!!! about me. I am the kind of person that does not like to "toot my own horn" but let me give it a try.

1. I started to sew. While not a true seamstress, I sewed two aprons last month, thus living partially up to an Apron Goddess. I have sewn new curtains for my bedroom without a disaster occurring. I only had to go back to the fabric store once just to get additional fabric for details, not due to operator error. :)
2. I did something close to a canter pirouette on my horse this week. (This is really a "we" thing)
3. I can walk and chew gum. I can do arm circles in opposite directions.
4. I can grab things with my toes. We call this ability "Gripper Toes." My son Wyatt has inherited this same trait, lucky fellow!
5. I can back up a goose neck horse trailer without crashing into anything and drive it forward too.
6. I can cook perfect rice in a pot, no rice cooker required.
7. I can grow poppies by the dozens! And I am loved by the bees.

This giant bumble bee is apparently making out with my poppies. He was sure hard to catch on camera since he was so buzzy!

And I pass Queen title onto:
Suzi at Savy Suzi
Ryan Ashley Scott at Optimistic Cynicism
Pricilla at The Maaaaa of Pricilla
Cookie Girl at Cookie Girl Creations
Tara at Five O'Clock Somewhere

Enjoy Ladies!

I'm amazed at all your awsomeness! No wonder the bees love you. :) The arm circle thing is tough - I just tried it.

Thanks for the love, Julia - it is quite a beautiful award.

I really enjoyed your 7 awe-summ things! Anyone that can back a horse trailer, is awesome! I tore the rear bumper off a 6 horse. As you can see, I'm not awesome at backing up!

Suzi said...

Love the award, thanks for sharing. I knew some of the awe-summ things you could do, but not the arm circles. I personally can't do that. The bee making out with the poppy is a great shot!

Girl, you've got talent! I had to jump right up to see if I could do that arm circle thing too! :0)

I Love!! that Poppy Photo! The mountains in the background look lovely!

The Cookie Girl said...
