Versitile Bloger (such that I am)

Nancy, over at Sage Parnassus has passed along a Versatile Blogger award. Nancy is a CM advocate and her blog is full of good things. Be sure to check it out! Here's the skinny on the award:
  • Thank the award-giver who nominated you and link back to them in your post. (Thank-you, Nancy!)
  • Share 7 random things about yourself.
  • Nominate 15 blogs you enjoy reading (not happening, I'll just nominate 5, more or less)
  • Inform the bloggers of their nomination.
  • Add the Versatile Blog Award picture on your blog post.

7 Random Things about me:
  • I spent a month backpacking in the High Unitas Wilderness in Utah the month before I entered college. I turned 18 in the mountains.  
  • I learned to read when I was 4. I used to read everything I could get my hands on. Now, I'm a bit more discerning. 
  • B.C. I had no intentions of getting married and had vowed never to marry a psychologist. (True Story. Cosmic joke in my life #2).
  • I have been (mostly) happily married to my polymath, psychologist, hairy-beast husband for 26 years.
  • I love Christmas brag letters and photos. Bring 'em on. Life's hard, tell me the good stuff!  
  • I have lived on the East Coast, West Coast, Great Lakes region, Southwest and upper Midwest.
  • Besides the Bible, Narnia has probably influence my theology more than any other writing.

5 Blogs (+ 2)I like:
The Momma Knows. Great article right now on Goal Setting For Real Life.
Home is Where You Start From. Jen runs a fun photo contest each week among other things.  
The Magic Schoolhouse. Karen is passionate about science. I love reading her blog- it never fails to push me further....
I'm Nobody Who Are You. Daisy does lit studies like nobody else I know!
52 Books in 52 Weeks. Robin does a great job sharing new reads, reviewing and keeping fellow bibliophiles reading along.

Hip Homeschool Moms. Good stuff happening over there. Just so happens I'm also guest blogging for them: True Confessions.
And Heart of the Matter On-line. A great resource for Homeschoolers. My December article is up:  Making High School Fun. Not that I do that much, but we do have our moments.

What are your 5 Fav Blogs?
