The Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award

     Thanks to a beautiful blogger and person, Jo, I have been given The Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award.   This is such an honor coming from Jo because she is one of the sweetest people I know.  If you haven't checked out her blog, My Wandering Mind you really should asap.  She is funny, entertaining, warm, witty and just an all around great writer.  Please take the time to visit her because you won't be disappointed.  You'll find yourself returning over and over and being so glad you did!  Thank you Jo.  Love you.

     Like anything worth receiving, there are obligations that go along with this reward.  

1.  I must proudly post the award in my acceptance blog.
2.  I must thank the person presenting the award and post a link back to their blog.
3.  I must share 7 completely random facts about myself.
4.  I must nominate 15 fellow bloggers to receive this award and post a note on their blog letting them know 
      they have been given an award.
5.  I must state these rules in my acceptance blog.

So, here we go with 7 things you may or may not know about me.

1.  I used to be a clown, literally, in a Christian clown troupe called the "Son-Shine Troupe".  My name was

2.  I used to do folk art painting before arthritis started cramping my hands.

3.  I have always had a strong love of the beach, even though you can count on one hand the number of times
     I've actually been to one.

4.  I'm a big music lover, almost all kinds, almost.  Not much on hip hop and rap.

5.  I had never seen a real cow until I married a dairy farmer and became a farmers wife.

6.  I had a full academic scholarship to college that I gave up because I fell in love with the earlier mentioned
     dairy farmer and couldn't bear to leave him for 4 years.  I would do it all over again.

7.  I'm a pretty good cook.

      Okay, now that I've enlightened you on the subject of me, it's time for the fun part where I get to bestow the honor upon other deserving bloggers.  Please check them out for yourself.

     If you're keeping track I know that is only 10 but I must quit to go fix lunch.  There are so many deserving bloggers out there so I'll leave it to you to find even more.  But for now please check out the ones I've mentioned.  And thank so much for the honor Jo.  I appreciate the award and you to the moon and back!

     And while we are talking about awards.  I have been so remiss in my manners.  Some time ago I was given a lovely gift by a beautiful person and I blatantly failed in publicly thanking her.
     This is the beautiful gift I was given by November Rain at  She is such a warm, encouraging person and has been a great friend and mentor to me.  This gift coming from her touched my heart beyond measure and I want to apologize to her for taking so long to let her know.  Please check out her blog if you are not already a follower.  She is a tremendous writer.  Thank you for the ray of sunshine November Rain.  I do have some in mind to pass it along to.

Until next time...that's my view.




  1. Kat! You must write more about your love story...the fact that you declined a scholarship for love and that married a dairy farmer before ever seeing a cow?? Love it. xoxo Thanks for the fun award!! I'm be making note of these other blogs to hop around! : )

    1. You are most welcome. I enjoy your blog. Not too sure there is much to write about my love story. I did write a little in a couple of my early blogs if you ever have time to look through my archive.

  2. I'm loving your love story -- there should be more. :-)

    And THANK YOU for the award! Very nice!


    1. There may be more to come. Thank you for reading. You are welcome for the award. I love reading your blog. It is always so entertaining.

  3. Thanks a lot Kat. will give credit to you in my next post. Really appreciate the gesture.

    1. You are welcome Paps. You deserve it!

  4. Thank you, Kat. I love awards almost as I love Kohl's 30% off coupons. You are too kind. Per my stock speech, I would like to thank Jesus and Red Bull. Not necessarily in that order.

    1. You are too funny Marianne, and a woman after my own heart. I love Kohl's 30% off coupons too! :D)

  5. Aw....thank you Kat!! So sweet. And your no. 6 sentence about your husband gave me chills.

    1. You are most welcome Dawn. You deserve it!

  6. are just the kindest woman I have never actually met. One day when I come to the states in the next few years would you honour me by letting me visit you?

    Thank you for the award and thank you for your support.

    And I would like to echo everyone's request for the story of the love that took you to a farm. None of us mean or intend any disrespect to your hubby but we would love to hear the story.

    A bug hug for you!

    1. Awww Marlia, I'm no different than you and several others I've met through my blog. I would love it if you could come visit. That would be awesome! I'll think about the story. If you want a little bit of it you can read a blog in my archive called Score - Love All, written on Sept. 12, 2011. It tells how we met. Hugs right back at ya!

  7. Ahhh this is sweet :)


    1. Thank you Megha. Thanks for stopping by.

    I think all people need to visit the sea periodically for renewal of a sort. Not a problem for us - the front garden runs into one!


You've read my thoughts, now, please leave me yours. Thank you.
