About Katherine, author of Katherines Corner

Katherine Corrigan Nov 2012 Katherines CornerYou are on the about Katherine page. Hello and Welcome, I’m so happy you are here at Katherines Corner ( formerly known as Go Ask Katie).  I’m Katherine (some call me Katie) and I am honored by your visit to my blog and your interest in learning more about me.

I was born in England on Nov 1st 1960 (I’m a Scorpio) I came to live in the USA in 1975. I currently live in a state where I can see the beautiful mountains from my kitchen window and a lake from my upstairs bedroom window. I hold a rare dual citizenship with the UK and the USA and I am a proud citizen of both.

I am an open minded and spiritual person who strives to always maintain a positive attitude and greet each new day with grace, dignity and gratitude. I am happily married to my best friend Robert ( Sparky). I am  Mother, Daughter,Stepmother, a Sister, an Auntie, Grandmother (to five beautiful children)  and friend. I am also Mama to our sweet dog Izzy.

izzy framedI love making memories with my husband, my family, and friends.

I am Mama to this sweet fur baby named Izzy

I enjoy photography, music, art, cooking, reading, writing, movies. making memories, blogging and working from home.

I always enjoy having friends and family over for a good meal. Food tastes better when it is shared. yes, I am a foodie, giggle.

I love classic films.

I am a child of God.

I’m uncomfortable in heat exceeding 75 degrees and I love the rain.

I sing in the car, very loudly!

It is my goal one day to live in a cottage by the water

 

I enjoy bike rides and spontaneous adventures. I love a good road trip!

I’m a bit superstitious

I’m afraid of heights and rodents.

I believe in Karma.

I pray daily.

I meditate daily.

One of my favorite places to visit is the Oregon coast. I love the beach. But, I don’t like to swim in the Ocean.

I believe there are angels on earth (my Mother is one.)

I believe love makes a family.

If I had a Super Power I would want it to be the ability to heal.

My main guilty pleasure foods are: French fries, potato chips and bacon. But not all at once and not very often.

I sometimes forget where I park my car and I wander around the parking lot for a few minutes until I find it.

 

In my pantry you will always find tea and cheerios

In my fridge you will always find fresh vegetables.

I love dogs and I’m allergic to cats.

I’m a mush ball and I love romantic gestures.

I used to collect angels; I had been collecting them since I was a little girl.I now have more than anyone person should have.I choose a few to display and the rest are packed away.

I believe every person has a right to be married.

I have a long list of movies I’ve enjoyed over the years and that list is always growing. But, “The Big Chill” and “The Enchanted Cottage” are always at the top of my list. Unfortunately I can no longer watch new movies at the theaters but I wait patiently for their release on video.

I don’t like the nickname Kathy, although people have been calling me that for years. I prefer my given name Katherine, or the nickname Katie.

I listen to music every day. My favorite music is Jazz or Classic rock followed closely by everything else.

I have been fortunate to have traveled to many places in our big beautiful world and I have lived in some exotic and unusual places too. I have lived in England, France,Turkey, Puerto Rico, California,Oregon, Washington, and Utah.

I hope to visit Vermont in the Autumn someday .

I am an unpretentious cook, food that is simple, with easy to follow instructions. My favorite!

 

One day I want to learn how to play the guitar.

I own approximately 900 cd’s and I have over 100 record albums. Yes, record albums.

I cherish my bloggy friendships.

I believe most people are good. I will talk to anyone, anywhere, at anytime, as long as it is welcomed.

I think a good laugh and a hug every day helps you to live a long happy life.

I enjoy silly humor. But, I don’t like The Three Stooges.

If I love someone I say “I love you” without hesitation.

 

 

if you have seen this image at left before  It was taken by me ( I have seen it used many times throughout the internet, but it is my image) I now I watermark all my photos.A tough lesson to learn.

I have experienced great pain and sorrow and I have experienced the greatest love and the fullest joys.

I have Polycythemia Vera, suffered a TBI, and I have MAV.

    I love your picture of the tulips. Yes, we have had some beautiful weather this week, up in the high 60s and sunny. Then, rain today, but at least the temps are still in the 50s and no snow! Our trees are leafing out and the song birds have returned. Springis truly in the air.

    Oh my friend! I am so sorry that bullying was a part of your life. I am sending hugs and prayers to your grand daughter and sure hope that things go better for her soon! What a horror that is! I have not experienced it first hand but my husband Joe had a horrible time for the first 22 years of his life — he suffered from tourette syndrome without a diagnosis and you can just begin to imagine the horrors he experienced and by the by the way — much of it from GROWN-UPS!!!! Thank God we had it diagnosed and he is on meds and you would not know that he has it but he lived a hell and I am so sorry that you went through…oh and by the way…he also got bullied and made fun of in Church! (can you believe that!) Sending hugs to you my friend and if any one bothers you…you call me : ) Love you!!!

  25. Diana Stevan

    Katherine, love your blog and your name. The protagonist in my novel to be published is called Katherine with a C. What I like about your website is that it reminds me of my home economic days. I got a Bachelor’s degree in that, eons ago, and at that time, we studied food, nutrition, child care, psychology, family finance, etc. It seems you have a smattering of it all here. I’m looking forward to getting your posts. And thanks for visiting my blog. I wouldn’t have known about you otherwise. And thanks for the congratulations. Hugs back.

    1. Katherines Corner

      More hugs!!!

  26. Catherine

    Dear Katherine, I am glad that you are feeling better from your fall. I hope that you are good as new in no time!

  30. Rosey

  39. Pam B.

    Hi! I am a new subscriber, and I am in awe of your blog. I can’t describe the feeling i got as I meandered through. So calm and peaceful, not like a busy freeway. I smiled the whole time. lol. I would really like to meet you in real life, but since that isn’t an option, I will remain happily following your written word. Just from what I read in some of the comments, we seem to have a couple of things in common. I realize how busy you must be. I don’t know how you manage. You have my email, and are welcome to email me anytime you have a chance. Maybe we can have some hot tea, scones and fancy sandwiches as we talk? Nice to meet you.
    Your Sister in Christ, Pam

    1. Katherines Corner

      Pam your comment wraps me like a warm hug. Thank you and tea and scones sound lovely. xo

    I love your blog so much because you are so Loving, Inspirational and Encouraging. I wanted to join in on the Favorite Things Blog Hop but unfortunately, I have to make a very pain filled trip to Virginia Mason the see my Gastro Doctor. I think I may have to go back on Antibiotics and a Steroid as my Ulcer in my colon has not healed yet.

    Another reason I love your blog so much is that you remind me of a great friend here in Eburg named Marty Hazelwood. You both are just so beautiful inside and out {{{hugz}}}

    1. Katherines Corner

      thinking of you and sending hugs your way. So happy to see you blogging again.
