On January 6th I was nominated for the Super Sweet Blogging Award by Jo at
Jo blogs regularly about her family and especially her mother in law who has Parkinson’s Disease. Jo is a great caregiver for her mother-in-law and also cares for her grandson on occasion. She is devoted to her family and writes an interesting blog and I suggest you check it out!
As with most blogging awards, there are some rules.
- You are to give credit to the person who chose to nominate you. See above.
- Answer the “Sweet Questions”.
- Nominate a “Bakers Dozen”
Now the questions:
- Cookies or Cake? I much prefer cake, though am more likely to have cookies in the house. Cookies keep easier in their package if purchased at the store. But, bring me a piece of chocolate cake anytime!
- Chocolate or vanilla? No question, I prefer chocolate to vanilla or any other flavor.
- Favorite sweet treat, cheesecake or frozen yogurt. Actually since I have lactose intolerance, I don’t indulge in either very often. I do take Lactaid so I can have a little ice cream regularly (chocolate, of course!).
- When do you crave sweet things the most? All day, every day. Actually I crave them the most when I have to limit my intake such as in the evenings. I do have a bit of chocolate every day though. Now, of course, it is a health food, so I don’t even feel guilty about it!
- What would be your sweet nickname be? Honestly, that one has me stymied. I think the sweetest nickname for me is “grandma” as I love being a grandmother and wish I had more time with my grandchildren. In the last few years I have been focusing most of my energy on eldercare and have had less time and energy for grandchildren, but I would love to have them all live nearby and have them be able to drop in after school!
Nominate a baker’s dozen. Actually, I don’t keep up with enough blogs regularly to choose that many at this time, and I have nominated many that I like for other awards in the past.
These are the blogs I nominate and I suggest you check them out:

http://peace4me521.wordpress.com/ Kathy’s Blog. Kathy writes about grief and is still grieving about the loss of her mother. Her blog speaks to me as I lost my mother 2 years ago and still miss her every day.
