lovely-blog award via Simply Sandwich and SandwichINK for the Sandwich GenerationWhat a sweet treat for this Sandwich Generation granny nanny as I was reading over my comments a few days ago. Paula, from Simply Sandwich, had stopped by to read "Great Tools for the Sandwich Generation – 2 Most Definitely Useful iPhone Apps for Aging Boomer and Senior Eye Issues" and wrote: "You are awesome Kaye. I can use any help I can get with the fine print these days!  When you have a second, stop over to my place – bloggy love awaits you!" Of course, I had to pop over right away where I discovered two sweet gifts from her:

More blog awards for SandwichINK for the Sandwich Generation - what a blessing.jpg
 

There are some simple rules for these sweet treats, including one in particular that I thought you might enjoy as well.

For both The One Lovely Blog Award and the Kreative Blogger Award, some of the rules are the same:

  • Link back to the one who gave you this award – I already have in the past as well as today, as Paula at Simply Sandwich is a fellow believer AND member of the Sandwich Generation whose writing I appreciate and love to share with you.
  • Follow the person’s blog who sent you it – Ditto
  • Pass the award on – Absolutely!

The Kreative Blogger has one extra rule and that's the part I thought you'd especially enjoy – Share 10 random facts about yourself.

  1. I wanted white drum major boots when I was 13. 
  2. I loved bubble gum pop music as a tween and teen and still do – Monkees, Partridge Family, Cowsills, etc. πŸ™‚
  3. I have a box of all my favorite Star Trek Classic and Next Generation novels in two closets to someday re-read again as I am very definitely a Trekkie (without the costumes.)
  4. I started ice skating very young and still enjoy ice skating and roller skating to this day – now with the grandkids.
  5. I have always believed in God but it wasn't til I was about 20 that I totally committed my life to Him.
  6. I love police dramas like CSI and NCIS.
  7. I have been in and out of the Sandwich Generation since I was 23 – helping with my grandparents when my first child was a baby.
  8. My favorite candies are Lindt Lindor Truffles – Dark Chocolate with a smooth filling AND M&M Peanuts
  9. I love body surfing in waves, though haven't done it in over 10 years.
  10. I am an introverted extrovert or an extroverted introvert. 

The amount of people to pass these on to has morphed a bit, currently it's at 5, and with life so busy for all of us now, I'm going to follow in everyone's footsteps and change it a bit as well. So, TA DA, here are just some of the many special bloggers whose work I greatly appreciate. Ala Paula's wise words, This is the fun part of the blogosphere so please do not feel this is a bloggy project, if you want to send these lovely awards along, please do! If you are not able to do so, just relax and enjoy them and be blessed:

  1. Denise Brown, Caregiving.com – A familiar favorite here at SandwichINK, her site is a blessing to so many of us caring for our aging parents.
  2. Diane Yuhas, a fellow caregiver – caring for her senior mom with Alzheimers Disease, she frequently share encouraging words of wisdom and Scripture that are such a blessing to me. 
  3. Charlotte from Charlotte's Weblog AND Spiritual Sunday – a fellow Boomer, her Christian encouragement at both sites has been such a blessing to us and I really appreciate her ministry.
  4. Frugal Fun for Boys – a very talented and creative mom of boys, I get such good ideas from her for my grandkids (especially the grandboys) and hope you will too!
  5. Sarah at SideTracked Sarah – another very creative mom who I turn to whenever I need some fun and easy crafts ideas for the grandkids that we seniors can enjoy as well. 

kreativ blogger award via Simply Sandwich and SandwichINK for the Sandwich GenerationThank you, again, to Paula for these two delightful awards. I hope y'all enjoyed learning a few new things about me (mostly new, anyway). Enjoy meeting some old and new blogging friends and have a blessed day as you go about your caregiving day in the Sandwich Generation
