#139-YIPPPPPEEEEEEE! LOOKEY WHAT I GOT!

 I PROMICE I WON'T LET IT GO TO MY HEAD, BUT I GOT ANOTHER AWARD!



Awh, Mannnnnn, this is (as I used to say in the 50s) “bitchin!”


Thank you, Eve (thedesertrocks.blogspot.com).  I have never been described as “cute” or “like a jelly donut that might squirt” but, I think I like it.  (FYI, I haven't squirted since I sneezed when I was breast feedng.)  

I have to pass this on to six other sweet blogs, post the link, a picture of the award and list four of my guilty pleasures on my blog. 

It is not as easy as it sounds as I am fortunate to know a lot of sweet people that are blogging.  I nominate the following 6 bloggers (in no particular order).

FIRST of all I just HAVE to nominate Lazarus (lgreport.blogspot.com).  Several weeks ago he took my ribbing without complaint and was as sweet as he could be. 

SECOND comes Mona (wsprsweetlyofcottages.blogspot.com)  She has a blog that invites you into her home and makes one feel warm and fuzzy.  She is a real sweetheart.  And I bet she makes GREAT cinnamon buns!

THIRD would be Chief aka Dad   (unsoundreasoning.blogspot.com)  He gets absolutely gooey sweet whenever he talks about his girls. Plus, when asked on President’s Day, he knew that George Washington’s guilty pleasure was making whiskey!

FOURTH is Janelle (thewildwestshow.blogspot.com)
She is a sweet young lady raising two girls on her own in North Dakota.  She has a lot of challenges and seems to take them all in stride.

FIFTH Irene (softvoiceofafreespirit.blogspot.com)
This is one of the sweetest little ladies I have met so far.
She lives in the Philippines and is another overcomer.  She writes about ideas like strength of character, wisdom from failure, overcoming vanity and practicing forgiveness

SIXTH (now this is a tough one because I still have several of my all time favorite bloggers
still out there to be acknowledged).  Is it permissible to share one?  I read each one of these bloggers regularly (thank goodness they all don’t post daily).  I have found something unique and interesting in each and every one. (What the heck!  I doubt that there is such a thing the blogger police that will come and arrest me if I bend the rules a little.  So, I will just give you a list):
Here guys, you'll have to share

  • driftwoodramblings.blogspot.com
  • embraceletsdesigns.blogspot.com

  • thedessertrocks.blogspot.com
  • wrestlingwithretirement.com
And then there's Clenna who is my #1 follower (who I can't seem to connivence to start her own blog).

Only 4 guilty pleasures??????  That is going to be sooooo hard as I have a lot more than 4.
There are at least 10 that involve chocolate!  Ok, here goes...

1.  To me my hot fudge Sunday is not considered finished until I lick all the fudge out from the inside of the cup (even the bottom).  This has a tendency to give me a chocolate mustache, nose, and sometimes even eyebrows.

2.  Taking an afternoon nap, DAILY!

3.  Now that I am retired I can put off almost any choir I want… and I do!  I have been known to run to Walmart for new panties so I don’t have to do a load of laundry (is that too much information...).
4.  I did something daring and got a tattoo on my ankle for my 70th birthday.  That post will be coming up soon.

5.  WOOPS, I WAS ONLY SUPPOSED TO DO FOUR.  I ALREADY BROKE THE RULES ONCE SO YOU WON'T GET TO HEAR ABOUT OTHERS... LIKE:
Woops is this another TMI?

  1. Very entertaining!

    Oh, and Happy Presidents Pets Day - the day after Presidents Day, as I like to call it. In the US, of course we love our presidents..... pets. See my blog if you’re in the mood for a good ol' irreverent howl.

  2. Oh, WELL DONE, Karen!!! And I think you're a real sweetie, too :) I'm sure Toby approves of how eagerly you lick every last morsel of fudgey chocolate from your mug!

    I'm SO GLAD you handed Mona one of your awards - she's definitely one of the sweetest sweeties I've had the pleasure of meeting in Blog Land!

    I see you nominated me for the shared award...and, Ooops, I almost feel an Oscar's moment coming on! However, although I'm truly flattered Karen, I must politely (& sweetly!) decline...as I intend to remain Award Free. So, all you other charming bloggers who were to be sharing the award along with me, you've got another slice to divvy up!!!

    Looking forward to seeing that tattoo, now we know it's not in some 'not-to-be-spoken-about-in-polite-company' place!

    Hugs,

    Des xo

  5. Congratulations on all your awards. You deserve them and yes, you are sweet! Love the little cartoon of the lady drying her parts....

  6. Congrats on the award and thanks for putting me on your list. Sorry, I didn't see this sooner. Just to share a little TMI, I have used a dryer in the bathroom (like your lovely little cartoon) to dry my pits before. What can I say, when I was a kid my dad would only stop on a road trip when we needed to fill the tank up with gas. If, after 2 days stuffed in a station wagon, you started to smell rank, you had few options. One of them being what my Gram called a 'spit bath' using the sink at McDonald's. I have even washed my hair in one of those tiny sinks, but I didn't bother to dry it.

  7. Wow...talk about falling behind. I am glad to see that I made it to the nice repectable 4th place on your list. It's not at the very top and it isn't the very bottom so I am happy with that.

    I will have to list my 4 guilty pleasures within the next 24 hours. However, are you sure that you really want to know what my guitly pleasures are????
