Mud makes me crazy but awards make me happy!

As you may have noticed I have been away from the blogging "scene" for awhile. I have missed reading all of my favorite blogs.....I am going to try to catch up with you all now...so please don't forget about me!!! I think I may have mentioned that I just can't seem to get caught up on things and I always have things I NEED to get done or places I NEED to get to! I guess that is what happens when you are a wife, a mom and to make things interesting I also live on a farm. It has been very frustrating as Mr. Farmer is digging in water lines for more hydrants around our yard...(so I don't have to stretch 10 hoses around in the summer when I am watering my gardens) and also digging in electrical lines to add to a new machinery shop that we may be building later on this fall. Why is it frustrating you ask? I will give you one word: MUD! It has been muddy and you know what you get with children and mud? Mud in my garage...mud in my house....you get the picture right? So, when I am not doing something I should be doing I am vacuuming up MUD!

Okay moving on. I feel really silly about this but I just noticed the other day that my new friend Train Wreck over at
Cowboys, Kids and Sunsets blessed me with an award! You have to stop in and visit her...she has a great blog, she takes some amazing pictures and she is a very sweet gal! Train Wreck...I am so sorry -- I didn't intentionally mean to miss my award!!! I hope you will forgive me!!

This award is really neat. If you notice you can't read it (unless you can read Portuguese) so luckily Trainwreck translated it for me! It translates like this: This blog invests and believes, the proximity" (meaning, that blogging makes us 'close' -being close through proxy)
"They all are charmed with the blogs, where in the majority of its aims are to show the marvels and to do friendship; there are persons who are not interested when we give them a prize, and then they help to cut these bows; do we want that they are cut, or that they propagate?Then let's try to give more attention to them! So with this prize we must deliver it to 8 bloggers that in turn must make the same thing and put this text.So this award goes to:
Rambling Goat Chick
Harbor Hon
Simple Thyme Primitives
*the primitive bucket*
Living the Good Life
Where the blackbirds sing
The Old Primitive House
Country Girl at Heart

WHEW! That was tough...

Anyway.....I hope you all have a wonderful evening. Tune in soon as I have a yummy recipe I want to share with you all!

I've missed you while you've been gone! Looking forward to your recipe and all of your other creative ideas. The Tex Mex Skillet Chicken recipe you had on your blog was a biiiig hit in our family. How exciting it was to make something that everyone liked! That's an accomplishment in this family!
