Happy Wednesday!


The other day Angeline Trevena was kind enough to award me the Kreativ Blogger Award.  Thanks Angeline! :)

The rules are:
  1. Thank and link back to the person who presented you with the award
  2. Answer the ten questions below
  3. Share ten random facts/thoughts about yourself
  4. Nominate seven worthy blogs for the Kreativ Blogger Award

What is your favorite song?
That's really a tough one because I enjoy so many different types of music I can't pick just one song.  But currently I love Secret Door by Evanescence.

What is your favorite dessert?
Anything dark chocolate

What ticks you off?
Mean people

When you're upset what do you do?
I really don't get upset too often.  When I do, I guess I replay the incident over and over in my head to see what could have been done differently.  And I talk about it, usually with my kids or my husband and they help me feel better.

Which is/was your favorite pet?
I had a green anole (lizard), I named Diny Joe, when I was about 10.  I was devastated when he died.

Which do you prefer to wear black or white?

What is your biggest fear?
Being eaten by sharks; I was really affected by JAWS!

What is your attitude mostly?
You have to learn to laugh about things even when you want to cry.

What is perfection?
Perfection can't be achieved but you should always work toward it.  My family is as close to perfect for me as I'll ever find.

What is your guilty pleasure?
Hmmm, I don't really feel guilty about it but I feel exhilarated anytime I get a chance to skate for myself (I'm a figure skating coach if you didn't know that already).

Ok here's 10 other random things about me:

1. I don't have my ears pierced and I never will
2. I love my garden
3. I'm always cold (that's why I always have a cup of hot tea)
4. I used to eat lots of junk food, but I'm almost totally an organic whole foods foodie now
5. Learning to cook foreign dishes is a passion of mine
6. I love fishing especially with my grandpa
7. Traveling with my husband and kids is my favorite way to spend time
8. My kids think I'm crazy when I dance or sing
9. I can only draw stick people
10. I love reading history

Whew! That was a lot of stuff.  I hope you learned something new about me.

Now for the last part...I'm going to break the rules a little because I know some people don't really do awards.  So today I'm going to give this award to anyone who stops by.

I'd love to hear some random facts about you.  Any good news for this week?

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Kathy :)


  1. hey mom! thanks for the award! I'll post it on Friday :)

    love you!

  2. Thanks for the award mom!! :) <3

  3. i loved hearing about you---i especially can relate to your dear lizard story----and i love the fact that you always have a cup of tea---one of my characters was a tea lover---i am more of a coffee drinker, but find hot tea much more romantic!

  4. Love your answer to the attitude question: that's wise advice!

    It was nice getting to know you better. :)

  5. There are many different versions of this award going around, congrats on yours. So much fun to read your answers and learn more about you. Come on over and I will teach you how to make Norwegian fish balls and sheep head....LMAO!

  6. History! It amazes me that sooo much occurred in our past, and we know on tid-bits of it.

  7. Neat about the skating. I admire you're so coordinated. I adore dark chocolate, too, and I have that same habit of replaying things over and over. Ad nauseum my husband says. lol I believe in laughing, too, even when life is in a ditch. It helps.

  8. PS. Thanks for including Backworlds in your sidebar. :D

  9. Jaws really did a lot of us in!
    Kathy, after reading your comment, I suddenly realized I might not be following you either. Which is ironic, because I know you've commented on my blog and I know I've commented here - not sure what happened. But following now!

  10. Alyssa was kind enough to pass the award on to me, so that's my good news!

    I'm a history fan too. And I'd like to have a cup of tea next to me all the time if that was possible or advisable. It's good whether I'm hot or cold!

    1. I like iced tea too, but I usually stick to hot and unsweetened tea.

  11. Jess and Alyss- you're welcome!

    Lynn-I like coffee too but tea is my fav!

    Dana- Thanks!

    Siv- Fish balls sure, sheep head...well hmmm. :)

    Susan- I love being able to connect with the past!

    M Pax- I think it helps to review what happened.
    And you're welcome! :)

    Alex- Well at least we're all straightened out now! :)

  12. I loved your comment, "My family is as close to perfect for me as I'll ever find." My sentiment, too, exactly!
