Grinning from ear to ear!

I can't imagine why anyone would come to GrannyMountain to read my thoughts or look at my old pictures. But I'm glad you do, it makes me want to write more! Not only do you come and keep me company, Classy Chassy over at Expressly Corgi brought a
Kreative Blogger Award with her the other day!
Thank you for saying that, you have me
Grinning like a cat eating cockleburs!
So since I'm supposed to be Kreative, I searched a favorite old Ozark periodical (Bittersweet) to let you know just how I feel about this award.
When I first started blogging in February,
I was as Green as a gourd.

But after a few months I am getting the hang of it. In fact,
I've got so many things going,
I can't get any iron hot.

But even a blind sow finds an acorn every now and then!
I didn't think I had any more chance than a grasshopper in a chicken house.
I can tell you I'm happy as a hog in a wallow,
and happier than a dog in a meat packing house!

It's enough that you come and visit GrannyMountain, I can honestly say
I don't need the Award anymore than a tom cat needs a marriage license!

Here are rules of this Kreativ Blogger award - I must list 7 things about me that you may not know. Hmmmm. Let me think about this for a moment.

1.My first job was a waitress at Klepper's Cafe in Harrison, Arkansas.
2. I gave my 2 weeks notice the very first day, I was not cut out to be a waitress!
3. Even after 40 years of cooking, I still follow a recipe to the tee.
4. I washed Hubby's wool Pendelton shirt and shrunk it to infant size. He did forgive me!
5. I love buttermilk.
6.I hate black-eyed peas (please don't tell or I'll be kicked out of the South!)
7. I'm a very lucky person to have met the perfect husband the first time around!

And now, the people I would like to pass this award on to are as follows:

Finding Joy In My Kitchen

A Bird In My Hand

Chatty Crone

The HogscaldHoller

Smiling Country Ranch

Pine Cone Retreat

Picket's Place

If you have the time, and these days that's the hitch...pass the Award along to 7 others. If not just accept the Award and post on your blog! Some bloggers are award free,
so just go visit and tell them
Granny Mountain said "HOWDY!"

  2. A well-deserved award. Reading your blog brings me closer to home. I'm going to have to check out the hogscaldholler blog. Isn't there a place by that name somewhere in the Ozarks?

  3. I think you deserved the award too - you have a very interesting blog (and great pictures) as well as ExpresslyCorgi's. I'll check the others out and leave a comment, I'll even write 7 things about myself, just not sure whether I can tag 7 others. Thank you for thinking of me.

  4. Congratulations..I too love your blog, always interesting! Hey, I'm having a GIVE A WAY...Come say hi :D

  5. congrats and just one question, do you like buttermilk to drink or to cook with. i love to use it in recipes and my great grandmother would pour it over broken bread and eat it, but me, well just to cook with!

  6. Congrats on your award, Joy. That Taste of Home pumpkin cheesecake is to die for, let me tell you!
