Sunny Sunday and an Award – Woot!


When I opened my email last week and saw that the wonderful Melia Alexander had nominated my brand new blog for the Sunshine Award I was gobsmacked! I sat at my computer and grinned like a loon.  Really, I did. I can’t thank her enough for her generosity in bestowing this award on my newbie blog.

What is the Sunshine Award you ask? Well, lean a little closer and I will tell you… It is a bright and sunny flower that bloggers give to other “bloggers who positively and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere.”  Cool, huh?

As with most things, there are some rules.  Easy-peasy ones….

  • In your blog post, thank the person who gave you the award.
  • Do the Q & A
  • Pass the award to 10-12 deserving and inspiring bloggers, inform them, and link to their blogs.

So, without further ado, I will attempt to answer the questions.  I know you are waiting with bated breath, right? 

Favorite Color: This is a total no-brainer…green.  If you walked into my house right now you would immediately notice that color everywhere.  My daughter will tell anyone who will listen she lives in a leaf.  Works for me 🙂

Favorite Animal:  I have to go for the “aww” and say it’s my big orange tabby, Yogi.  He likes to help me type, although he can’t spell worth a damn.  He thinks my computer is just the place to take a nap or to stare at me until I give him some attention.  If he rev’s up his purr, I am a total gonner.

Favorite Number: I never really thought about it.  Do people usually have a favorite number?  Why?  Does it give you magical abilities?  If so, sign me up!  We all could use a little magic in our lives.

Favorite Non-alcoholic Drink:  Iced tea.  Okay, my British mother will be shuddering right about now and I can hear her threatening to disown me.  I appreciate a lovely cup of English tea in a proper china cup, but on a hot, sunny afternoon there is nothing better than an icy cold glass of iced tea.  Sorry, Mum.

Facebook or Twitter:  Twitter.  Not that I am any good at pithy or insightful tweets in 140 characters or less.  I have to confess, Facebook baffles me.  It could be that I never took the time to figure it out, but there you have it.

Your Passion: Is it possible to have just one?  I will spare all of your blushes (okay, my blushes) and merrily skip to the next question.  Oh, wait…you didn’t mean that passion.  My bad.

Giving or getting presents:  Both.  Giving a present satisfies a visceral need to please another person and makes me happy.  Receiving a present is a bit like drinking sparkling wine, all bubbly and exciting.  It’s a win-win. 

 Favorite Day: Hmmm.  This is a tough one.  Today ranks right up there as a favorite day, but then I have tomorrow to look forward to and it could be even better.  Let’s not even consider the possibilities for the day after that.  See my dilemma?

Favorite Flowers:  Daffodils.  I love that bright yellow and jaunty flower.  It makes me smile.  What more could you ask of a flower?

 So, there you have it.  I hope you enjoyed my answers as much as I enjoyed sharing that bit of myself. 

But, wait…the fun is not over yet.  Here is where I get to pass the award on to other wonderful writers.  I have visited their blogs and enjoyed each and every one of them.  Check them out.  I know you will be glad you did.

I realize I bent the rules a little and only mentioned seven blogs, but I am new to this and I am still discovering all the wonderful bloggers out there.  I am sure you can identify other worthy blogs that should be on this show a little love and pay them a visit today.  Don’t forget to leave a comment, because we all want to hear what you have to say!

Have a fabulous sunshiny day! 🙂
