Jack of all trades.... master of.....

I was very fortunate to receive an award from the very talented and lovely Janette at My Sweet Prints, Janette has a gorgeous blog where she shares all of her latest creations including the very popular bus rolls. If you haven't had the pleasure of meeting Janette yet please go on over and say 'Hi'. The rules of the Master of Karate and Friendship Award are: 1. List 6 things you are a master in. (hmmmm, this could be tough!) 2. Pass it on to 6 bloggers you think are masters at friendship and make blogging awesome. Well here goes, Number 1 I am a master of finding sales. I research, research and research prior to making major and even most minor purchases! Once I buy something I can't help myself I keep checking to make sure it isn't on sale anywhere else for a better price!
Number 2
I am a master of cooking one pot dinners! I dislike washing up pots and pans, I figure I will make it easy on myself and just throw it all in together. Fortunately my WH loves to create the gourmet meals and fortunately for him, I love to eat them!
Number 3
I am a master at fitting in one last thing before I end up sprinting out the door! It is not always a good thing! I am finding that I arrive wherever I am meant to be later and later and I am sure that most of the stuff I find the urge to do before I leave the house could actually wait until I get back home!
Number 4
I am a master at enjoying my bath. I don't get to have one often (I do shower every day), but when I do, I enjoy it thoroughly. It involves a book or magazine, a glass of wine or two, bubbles and maybe some music. My bath lasts generally an hour or more, by the time I am finished I am fully relaxed and de-stressed, renewed and ready for bed!!!!!
Number 6 I am a master at buying pretty things and displaying them but rarely wearing them.... they make me very happy when I admire their prettiness though.
I would like to pass this award on to the following blogs who I enjoy visiting and who make great blogging friends. Russett Street Reno
