Prolific Blogger? Me?

A few of my friends already got this award from Kathy. I'm more of a reader and not much of a commenter as they will tell you. I'm honored to get this award. Mostly my blog lately has been about the ins and outs with my Dad and his dementia. I haven't updated on him lately because its just getting too shattering for me to go there but here it is.........My Mom signed DNR orders a couple of weeks ago and this weekend the DNR bracelet was put on his wrist. It makes the end inevitable now. I mean it always was but it was always far, far away and not in the forefront of all of our thoughts. Now with that order dangling from his wrist when we visit him makes it so very real. Okay enough of that and on with the award. Thanks again Kathy.

Thanks to Kathy at She thought my blog fit this award. Thanks, Kathy!! A Prolific Blogger is one who is intellectually productive… keeping up an active blog that is filled with enjoyable content.

1. Every winner of the Prolific Blogger Award has to pass on this award to at least seven other deserving prolific bloggers. Spread some love!
2. Each Prolific Blogger must link to the blog from which he/she has received the award.
3. Every Prolific Blogger must link back to This Post, which explains the origins and motivation for the award. Passing it on to in no particular order:

1. Julie has a wonderful tutorial site. I haven't attempted any of her tutorials yet but I love looking at her work

2. Dena has a wonderful way with words. I love reading her blog. I've been bad lately Dena and haven't caught up with you lately. I promise I'll be there again soon.

3. This is Cyndy's food and recipe site. She cooks the way I used to cook and grew up eating. I drool reading the good things she posts here. She already received the award from Kathy for her daily life blog ( but I had to include this one too.

4. This one is pure fun. I love Nicolas Cage and have seen almost all of his movies and even went and saw the crummy ones and tried to find something good in them.

5. Gotta love a family that refers to themselves as fish.

6. Another tutorial site I love to read over. Still haven't tried any tutorials on here either. I really need to get back to the fun stuff online too.

7. Some of my favorite recipes come from this site. I probably pay more than $5 for the stuff but the recipes are awesome. She just published a cookbook I want to buy and also has a lot of slow cooker recipes on her site too.

Well, that's my 7. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do.


  1. Karen,
    I'm thinking about you and your family. I know how horribly difficult going through things like that are. It truly SUCKS!
