I'm so surprised to receive an award!

I received the Stylish Blogger Award from  Teresa at Our Southern Country Home and Farm.   
Thank you, Teresa, so much.  Chances are we will never meet in person, but I wish we could.  You are always so sweet in your comments.
 Here is how the award works:
1. Thank and link back to the person/persons who awarded you. 
2. Tell seven things about your self.
3. Award fifteen recently discovered bloggers with the award.
4. Contact those bloggers and tell them about the award.

 Seven things about myself:

1. I grew up in Louisiana until age 12,  when we moved to Oregon -- culture shock!
2. I've been a stay-at-home mom & wife as much as possible over my 41+ years of marriage.
3. I was a teaching assistant for Emotionally Handicapped Junior High students.
4. I have owned several businesses where I was able to work from our home.  The last was a 
    Newcomer Greeting Service, like Welcome Wagon, but I was the owner/operator.
5. I am rather "freakishly" organized, orderly, and routine-oriented.  This could drive an    
    ordinary man crazy;  but, fortunately, I'm married to an extraordinary man who just 
    accepts me the way I am.
6. I have another blog where I am writing about my life, but have not published a post yet.
    It is intended to be self-therapy for me to deal with a lot of sadness.  I may or may not
    ever publish. 
7. I am thrilled at the plans we are making to move closer to our children and grandchildren.

    We have never lived close enough to our married children to have an impromptu meal
    together, or take a couple of the "grands" for an outing.

This part is difficult because it's really hard for me to chose  since I like all of you and feel you all deserve this award a lot more than me;  so a special "thank you" to all of you who follow &/or comment on my blog.  I truly appreciate each and every one of you.
Now for the 15 "newly discovered" (that would be "new" to me) bloggers:
1.   Collectin Texas Gal
2.   Beautiful Nest
3.   A Bowl Full of Lemons
4.   My Domestic Bliss
5.   Organizing Made Fun
6.   Pretty Handy Girl
7.   Purple Chocolate Home
8.   Red Couch Recipes
9.   Lisa's Room by Room
10. Rusty Rooster Vintage
11. Sew Many Ways
12. Southern Comfort in a Northern Life
13. Southern Fried Gal
14. Southern Inspirations
15. The Little Round Table 

I hope all of you have fun with this award and relish the opportunity to get to know some sister bloggers just a bit better.


  1. Oh, you are too kind! Thank you so much for the award. I loved learning about you, although I am sorry for the sadness in your life, but I guess none of us get through this life without that. I have six grandkids and they all live within 10 minutes (that may change in a few months with 2 of them - but hope not) and we have loved every second of that even though the home is totally unorganized and chaotic while they are here! Have a wonderful day and thank you for making mine!

  2. Congratulations Cas on your award!!
    That's a great honor...........
    Enjoyed reading about your life, writing and journaling is a very healing path. Been there done that too!! Just not on a blog.
    May you find great healing in that path.
    Blessings, Nellie

  3. Thank you sweet lady for this award. I am humbled - it's been so long since I got one. What a fun way to get to know eachother. I noticed we have much in common -including the routine-oriented part. Good think God blessed us both with wonderful hubbies who accept us for who we are!
