From the lovely Wikipedia:

versatile (comparative more versatile, superlative most versatile)
1.capable of doing many things competently

2.having varied uses or many functions

3.changeable or inconstant

4.(biology) capable of moving freely in all directions
Oh Oh!  I'll take #4 please...that sounds like fun!

Kirsten over at Kirsten's Kitchen nominated me for this award.  Thanks Kirsten!  Now make me some yummy vegan food and send it my way, ok?  Seriously, check out her blog for some good vegan eats.

I guess now I have to do one of those "tell 7 new interesting things about you" deals.  That's cool..I kinda like reading other peoples' interesting things, so here ya go:

  1. I don't like the water.  Seriously.  It takes just the right conditions to get me into a pool or the ocean.  Must be my Aries FIRE sign.

  2. I didn't graduate High School, I took my exit exam early (at 17) and started City College.  Take that High School!

  3. I've been vegetarian since I was 14 when I read about how dolphins get caught when catching commercial tuna and get mixed all up in the tuna-ness.  Ugh...sorry if that's TMI.

  4. I don't sleep much (thanks Dad!).  I generally do well on about 5 hours of sleep.

  5. I secretly want to be a tinker, which is basically an Irish Gypsy (although now I guess it's not that secret anymore).

  6. Although it's all cool and hip to like almond butter instead of peanut butter...I'm a PB girl through and through.  I only buy organic though since they are proven to not carry the aflatoxins. 

  7.  I take being a Mom very seriously.  It's my number one job.  I love my little attachlings...
Ok, so if you want a few more tidbits, go here where I won another award and rattled off another 7 things.
Now, I pass this along to 7 other versatile bloggers:
  1. Angry Chicken
  2. The Knitty Gritty Homestead
  3. Wabi-Sabi Wanderings
  4. Twig and Toadstool
  5. Blue Skies and Dragonflies
  6. Earthmama
  7. The Magic Onions
So there's the 7 I chose tonight.  There are many blogs that are versatile in their own interest area, but I tried to choose blogs that branch out and try to encompass many different ideas/thoughts/practices.

Here's to being versatile!


  1. Thanks sweets! I too love those dolphins and do not like the thought of them getting all tangled in nets! I actually have some questions for you, but do not have your email address. I was hoping to get your advice on a beginners raw "cookbook"...I know you mentioned one before, but I cannot rememeber what it was, and get some input on dehydrators.

  2. wonderful list of bloggers there !x

  3. that was fun to read.
    totally wiht you on 1, 6, and 7!

  4. And I'm with ya on Interesting Things 6 & 7! And apparently I'm with ya, in a different manner, on Versatile Bloggers 3 ;-) I am definitely with ya on the other Versatile Bloggers! Thanks for the nod. Now I have to go think about interesting things....

  5. Thank you for the lovely award! What a great list of blogs!! I LOVE that two of the other bloggers you listed are my "real life" country neighbours and friends, (wabi sabi and knitty gritty)...these hills breed some pretty versatile ladies!!
    I enjoyed reading your list...I'm all for PB here too, and I did have a brief stint or two as a vegetarian for that exact reason, (the dolphins)...pregnancy and our long, cold Canadian winters does seem to get me pretty carnivorous at times. Now I'm like a seasonal vegetarian!
    much love to you and yours

  6. Thank you, thank you! I'll add this to my list of things to catch up on when I return in September! I'll start making my list of 7 now, though! (I'm a PB girl too...)

  7. you are well deserved for this award. your blog is one of my top faves and i'm so glad i came across it. it's funny how the blog-o-sphere becomes smaller when you hone in on what you enjoy reading. you see the same bloggers pop up in everyone's comment sections... it is such an interesting phenomenon. anyways i liked reading the tidbits about you and loved your last bit especially. such a cute way to phrase the joy of being a mama. hope you're having a great week!

  8. interesting tidbits! love it :)

  9. Thank you so much... I'm honored. And I loved reading your 'secrets' - so wish I could do well with 5 hours sleep!! I also want to be a gypsy... see, we are the same!
    Blessings and magic,

  10. Ha ha! So glad to see I'm not the only closet PB eater. :)

  11. I am SO glad that there are Mamas like YOU!

    All joys,

  12. hehe..those are 7 great things! I love PB too and so do my kids :) I love the water but it has to be warm(ish) Scorpio!
