Liebster Award

I got awarded The Liebster Award by Rebekah (Reba) at Rebekah's Haven of Thoughts. Thanks, Rebekah!  I don't think this is the first time I've been awarded it, but this is the first time I have actually done it. Bunny trail: does anyone know why it is called the Liebster award? I have no idea. End of bunny trail.

So, anyway, here are the rules.

#1. The person must list 11 things about them.
           1. I can read four books in a day, but usually I only read two. And that is not short books.
           2. I have my own herd of cows. It's a very small herd, but still....
           3. I make bread a lot, but it's almost a chore for me, since you have to knead the bread for 20 min.
           4. I like learning about ancient ancient history, OOPArts, and that sort of stuff. It's really neat how technologically advanced ancient peoples were.
           5. Hymns are my favorite songs.
           6. I do not like sewing.
           7. I do like knitting.
           8. I think I like crochet, but I'm not good at it yet.
           9. Making cards w/ stamps is fun too.
           10. I don't compose songs. It is too hard to remember those notes that sounded so good.
           11. I have never seen the Lord of the Rings movie. Or a lot of famous movies, for that matter.
#2. Answer the 11 questions that the tagger has set for you PLUS you MUST create 11 questions of your own for the 11 people you will nominate with this award.
This is hard, but here goes. Here are the questions Rebekah asked me, with my answers.
  1. Sweet or salty? I would have to say sweet.
  2. Finding Nemo or The Chronicles of Narnia? I think the Chronicles of Narnia, but I've only see the first one.
  3. Running on the beach or a through a sea of grass? A sea of grass.
  4. Favorite joke? Ummm, I don't think I really have one. And Storyteller used my backup joke. I'll see... here's a really lame one, but it's funny.    Q. What has big ears, is grey, and has a big trunk? A. A mouse going on vacation.
  5. Favorite soda? Sprite
  6. Sweep or vacum? Sweep. yep.
  7. Cat or dog?  Dog. Dog. Dog. DOG! cat.
  8. True books or fiction? Both
  9. Yout opinion of a must see movie. What's a movie? ha ha just kidding. But I have seen so few movies in my life that I really can't answer that.
  10. Sweet tea or unsweet. Unsweet.
  11. Ham or bacon? Bacon, because it comes in turkey form too.

Now here are the questions for those people I tag to answer.

1. Why did you start blogging?
2. What do you like best about your blog?
3. What is your favorite blog?
4. Summer or Winter?
5. Fall or Spring?
6. Fantasy or Historical Fiction?
7. What do you think I look like?
8. History or Math?
9. Music or Sports?
10. Outside or Inside?
11. What is your favorite type of day?(i.e. hot, cold, sunny, cloudy, raining, etc)

3. Choose up to 11 bloggers linking them to your post.

4. Go to their page and inform them of the nomination

5. Absolutely NO tag backs

6. Remember to ONLY tag bloggers with less than 200 followers

I'm glad you don't have to do all eleven people! It's soooo hard to figure out who to tag!


  1. Thanks for doing it! I enjoyed reading!

    1. Your welcome! Glad you liked reading it!

  2. Thanks for awarding me! Since I've already got this award and I don't ''do'' awards anymore, I'm not going to post it. But it's the thought that counts, right? ;)
    Thanks again!

  3. I think that it's called the Liebster award because it's some like "sweet" in German....... I think...... anyway, thanks for awarding the gazette!! I'll have it posted as an "award to the newspaper." =D
