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.
- 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 list..so 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! 🙂
