Another tag...

I received this tag from Kyrie a while back and am finally getting around to doing it. Thank you so much for thinking of me, Kyrie!

Here are the rules:
1. Thank the person who gave you the award.
2. Copy the Award.
3. Post it in your blog.
4. Tell us 7 things that your readers don't know.
5. Link 7 new bloggers as recipients.
6. Notify winners of award with comment on their blog.
7. Keep being an encouragement!

Here are the seven things about me that you probably don't know--although I've done a couple tags like this before and may have posted some of these facts already, so you may know them after all!

1. I just read an article in a gardening magazine about how you can grow a pineapple plant (and get a small pineapple) by planting the top of a store-bought pineapple in some soil in a pot! I'd like to try it sometime...
2. Usually, little people love to eat mashed potatoes, but my parents tell me I definitely was not very fond of them. That is, not until my best friend, Lindsey was at our house and was gulping them down with enthusiasm... I asked her why she was eating those mashed potatoes and she informed me that they were very, very good, so I gave them a try and have loved potatoes ever since! (Mmm mmm, I should make some for supper...)
3. I had to take my written drivers test 3 times before I passed--mostly due to not understanding what to do in a skid or when your tire blows... My dad took a model car then-- before my third testing and gave me a visual picture of how things would work and, after that, I passed my test. :)
4. I've never tasted coffee before and don't plan to any time soon--if ever.
5. I've been working on a king-sized quilt for about 5 years now and still have a ways to go! It's going to be a very colorful quilt.
6. I usually like when it snows, but when my dad said it's supposed to snow today, I was dissapointed as now we'll have to clear off our ice again before we can skate...
7. I have several musical instruments, but only claim to be able to play the piano--somewhat. There are 2 violins sitting along side my bed; there's an accordian by my night stand; a lap-harp by some books; and a small harmonica downstairs someplace. :) (The piano is Mom's and it's in our living room.)

Now, for the people I'm awarding this to (if you'd like to participate, that is):
  1. Grace
  2. Hannah
  3. Rachel
  4. Anna
  5. Kimberly
  6. Hannah
  7. Laura

Dear Anybody-else-who-would-like-to-do-this,

Please feel free to participate! I was limited to the number of people I could choose, but don't wish to exclude anybody.~

Thanks Cora!! I had fun reading yours. My brothers have tried growing a pineapple that way years ago. I don't remember what, but something happened to it and it died. Hope yours works for you!!

Thank you, Cora, for the award. I will try to think of 7 things today. I've already thought of one! I don't know how to copy the award and don't know of 7 bloggers that I can award it to though or how to link them. But I will post my answers on my blog.

I love the picture of you and your mom with your Azure supplies. That's how my kitchen looks, too, after picking up my order. It's nice to have all those supplies.

Stay warm!

Growing a pineapple top really works! I have three growing right now, and several that I am still waiting on (sometimes it's hard to tell if they're going to grow, or just die). My family only buys pineapple around Thanksgiving and Christmas, so I always save the tops and grow them. I haven't got any fruit yet, but it's still a fun exotic plant to have around (especially when it's FREEZING outside and you wonder if the blizzard will ever end! At least I can pretend I'm somewhere warm :).

Dear ladies~
How interesting--that others have tried growing pineapple plants already! I just learned about it the other day...

I look forward to reading your 7 things! :)
