The trouble with simple living is that, though it can be joyful, rich, and creative, it isn't simple. ~Doris Janzen Longacre

The best way to bring a sustainable change in the world around me is by bringing the change in myself

Look what I got, I am more excited than Big Kev was over his cleaning products. I love awards but it's the 7 things about myself that scares me a little, nah that's a breeze too (I think)It's from my mate Wendy at Butterflies and Breezers Thanks for thinking of me, I am sure we could be good friends in the real world too.

So now I need to tell you 7 things about myself
I love bum burgers from Hungry Jacks, I call whoppers that cause they go straight to my backside and stay there, now I am only allowed them when we on a roadtrip to the farm.

I hate ironing, what a waste of time, no sheets or anything I can fold up neatly. But workshirts and jeans is about it for me.

I love spending time in my garden, planting, watering and weeding.

I hate shopping for clothes, If it cost too much I would rather just put it back unless I am desperate. Just today my husband begged me to go buy clothes for myself cause I need a few new things for a winter holiday to Tassie. I got no problem buying for him, he scored 2 jeans, a shirt and a jumper today.

I love doing roosts on sunday's. Makes me think of my Grandmother's sonday lunches after church, yuummmy roosts and dessert afterwards.

I hate getting up early, esp. as we get up at 4.30am just about every morning for work. Please let me sleep in on weekends till 6.30am ...

I love Op Shop shopping, storybooks and craft magazines for cheap, lately I have even found a few nice tops for myself. We have two in Riverwood where I do the banking, so it easy for parking and close to work.

Now I need to pass on this lovely award to 3 very deserving ladies. It's very pretty don't you think?
These 3 Lovely ladies are:
Lois From Lois's Hands I love her bread recipes and travel photo's and stories.
AJ Oaks at A Little Farm With A Big Heart for her work with animals. My Favorite being Cookie,the donkey, check out that vidoe of cookie it makes me smile everytime.
and last but not least is
Holly at Easy Living the Hard Way. Holly take beautiful photo's even if her hubby won't take all the equipment with to town. What a pristine place you live Holly. hop on over and meet Holly and her lovely animals.
So there you go I done it all, except leave a message on their blogs to pop on over and collect their awards.
Until nexttime
