Someone Thinks I’m “Irresistibly Sweet!”

Yes, you read that title right. Someone does think so and has sent me a blog award to prove it! Here it is, in all its glory:

I have my dear friend and fellow novelist, the divine Char Chaffin, to thank for this honor. I have known Char for many years, and she is one of the most delightful people I’ve ever met. Be sure to check out her new book, Promises to Keep, available now!

Now, according to the award rules, I must do the following:

1. Thank and link to the person who nominated you.   Done. Thank you, dear Char! Big kiss!

2.  Share seven random facts about yourself.

Hmmm…OK. Let’s see if I can come up with some things you may not know about me.

A.  I have slept in the same bed with the aforementioned Char, and we barely knew each other. That probably sounds sordid, so maybe I should explain. 🙂 Char and I communicated in an online writing community, and we became good friends. That community organized a get-together in Atlantic City, New Jersey, and I was lucky enough to get to go. Char and I, along with two other girls, shared a hotel room one night. There were only 2 double beds, so we slept in one together. I think we got along famously.

B.  Right now, I have a huge load of laundry staring me in the face. Because I am a massage therapist and wash my own sheets, I often have laundry that either needs to be washed, dried, or folded. Having three men in the house doesn’t help, either.

C.  Today I have subsisted on peanut M & M’s and Coke Zero. Geez, sometimes it’s like I’m back in college again! I’m sure I will regret this later.

D.  I am making the prediction that Adele will clean up this year at the Grammy Awards. Yes, I’m a professional psychic, but I don’t think I need to tune in to get that one right.

E.  Ever since I was a child, my favorite number has been 11. Interesting that I learned much later in life that it’s connected to the Archangel Metatron, about whom I wrote a book.

F.  One of my biggest pet peeves is grocery cashiers who cannot pack bags correctly. How hard is it to put all the boxes together and all the cold stuff in one place, not to mention keeping the bread and the chips from getting smashed? Grrrrr.

G.  I have the best husband in the whole wide world. Argue all you want, but hey, I’m biased and won’t budge on this one.

OK. That’s 7 random facts. Have you really stuck around to read this?

3.  Pass the award on to 10 deserving blog buddies. 

Well, I am happy to pass the award on. Here are 10 blogs I love. I don’t know if they will be interested in continuing this passing-out-of-awards, but here they are just the same:

Material Girl

What I Wore 2 Day

Librarians Do It Between the Covers

Dynamic Dreamer by artist Lisa Hunt

At Brigid’s Forge by Lunaea Weatherstone

just eat your cupcake by Maria

Owl’s Wings–Beth Owl’s Daughter

Barbara Moore’s Llewellyn Tarot Blog

Author Casey Wyatt

And the Soul Mate Authors Blog, where I post every 4th Saturday of the month.

Whew! That’s a lot of award-giving! But all of these folks deserve it–their blogs are interesting, well-written, eclectic, and truly a lot of fun.

4. Contact those buddies and let them know. I’ll be sure to get on this right away, but please do stop by their blogs and tell ’em Rose sent you! 🙂

So there you go. I’m sweet. But you all knew that already, didn’t you?

    Rose – you are totally sweet and deserve this award! Thanks for the mention too! And, please eat something besides Coke Zero and M&Ms today. Maybe a Milky Way Dark bar or some pizza???

  • By Char Chaffin, January 31, 2012 @ 12:39 pm

    Rose is a snuggler, too. ::Smooches:: 🙂

    My love, if anyone deserves an Irresistibly Sweet Award, it’s you! One of the happiest days of my life was when you told me you’d sold Mervyn’s Raven. I loved reading your random facts, and am so very, very glad we’re friends. Give those handsome men of yours a big hug and kiss for me! LoveLove to you!


  • By Rose, January 31, 2012 @ 12:40 pm

    Thank you so much, Casey! And I’m happy to mention you–so glad we’ve gotten to know each other. Just think–this is how Char and I started out, and we ended up in bed together!

    Er…that didn’t sound quite right, did it?


    I’ll see what I can find for dinner that might be a bit more nutritious.


  • By Rose, January 31, 2012 @ 12:41 pm

    I only snuggle with certain people, Char. You are special! xoxox

    Thank you so very much, my friend. I am so blessed to know you!

    Thank you my friend! You deserve this very muchly — I find your blog inspirational, to put it mildly — and thank you for the sweet recommendation. 🙂

  • By Rose, January 31, 2012 @ 3:27 pm

    You are most welcome, Toni-my-Twinsy! And thank you for your lovely words about my blog. That means a lot to me! xo

  • By Kathi, February 1, 2012 @ 6:12 pm

    Wow, letter F – that’s a biggie in my world! 😉 Just ask my husband.

  • By Rose, February 2, 2012 @ 3:17 am

    Hi Kathi! Thanks for stopping by. It’s nice to know there is someone else who shares my love for a well-packed grocery bag. 🙂

    Love your icon, too! Snoopy and Woodstock–favorites in our house!

    I can see why you won the award. 🙂 With E, before and especially since I’ve read your book “Metatron,” my attention is often drawn to multiples of 11 in my environment, usually when I check my phone. When it happens, I call on Metatron to help me fulfill my purpose and experience the presence of God.

  • By Rose, February 8, 2012 @ 8:56 am

    Lee, that is such a great, inspiring thing to do when you see the number 11! I always say, “Hi Metatron!” but I like what you say even better. Thanks for sharing that here. 🙂
