Thanks to http tracesofthesoul wordpress com 2013 07… It’s a Wrapup Wednesday Finally…….


I started to do this post a couple weeks ago. things. especially computer glitches got in the way.

Thanks to

  3. The Sunshine Award is awarded to bloggers whose positivity & creativity inspires others.

Award Rules. (This one is fairly easy, especially with it being 3 in 1. My first award was doing twice as many numbers of things. 🙂

  1. Display the award picture.
  2. Thank the person who nominated you.
  3. Pass the nomination along to 15 blogs you have recently discovered.
  4. Contact the nominees.
  5. Share seven things about yourself.

7 things about little ole me:

  1. I tend to take on too many projects since I love to be doing all the time.
  2. I get so overwhelmed with this since I want to do it all. make every craft, go every place, follow every blog, befriend almost everyone, be in every group on fb, cut my own hair, you get the point.
  3. God is my refuge and strength, a very present help in the confusion this brings me.
  4. Speaking of Awards, I won the state home made bread award for Washington State Fair when I was like 12 or so. I still have my pin for that.
  5. What is peculiar funny with that though is….My bread machine broke about a year ago and have not made bread since. Yes it is confession time, I used to make the bread from scratch until my mom gave me the machine. Oh happy day, that was so much saving on time for me and now with the machine ready for being used as a flower planter or pot, I cannot seem to get enthused to do it the old way. Funny or sad? Maybe buy a new machine?
  6. It may be good, I do not make the homemade bread since I gained 80 lbs because of baking in my early 30’s. I baked every day. Not only bread, but fancy dessert and down home cakes, cookies, pies, you name it.
  7. I had to quit the baking after about 10 years for health factors with my kids and myself. I lost almost all the weight by this, exercising and eating beans with any Carbs. Yes beans. Many people do not believe that beans turns the Carbs to protein.
