Spreading a Little Sunshine

Ta da!  My day just got brightened!

These are the instructions for earning this award…

Link the award to the person who gave it to you . . .  Well, here I am a little out of my element.  I was nominated by a pig!  (You’ll have to check that out at Hutch a Good Life).  Thanks guys!

  • Answer the questions that come with it
  • Pass it along to 10 people and let them know they have received it

Here are the questions and MY answers:

Favorite number: Numbers don’t figure much into my existence.  I can count as high as I need to and don’t care how much faster the train heading out of the station is than the other train.  The end.

Favorite Non-alcoholic drink: fresh home-made rhubarb punch!  Yum!

Facebook or Twitter: Both help me to reach out to my readers, but if I have to have a preference, facebook wins by about half an inch.  (Oops, that’s a number.  Drat!)

My Passion: Do I only get one?  Hmmm – Truth.  Beauty.  Poetry.  Writing.  Sharing what I learn.  Hugs.  Sunshine.  God and His gifts.  My garden.

Favorite pattern: whatever is on my husband’s shirt at the time.  🙂

Favorite Day of the Week: The one I’m in.  The one called Today!

Favorite Flower: It’s a tie – lilies and roses.  Love ’em!

In no particular order my  nominations for The Sunshine Award are:

The Seaman Mom  (I know she has already received this award, but she is a little ray of sunshine in my cyber-space and I want to give her another one!)  She writes about her life as anew Mom – great style and information given in amusing and touching fashion.

Shian Writes Shian posts cool photos and interesting thoughts.

Generation W Julie is a published author with a heart for women’s ministry.

Poetry and Musings Kathleen is quite new to blogging – and posts fast and furious (I can’t keep up!)  Her poetry is very beautiful.

Writing Straight  Holly is an author and freelance writer who posts great writing tips and info of interests to writers in general.

Failing at Haiku   Symanntha writes such beautiful haiku – how she thinks it’s failing I can’t imagine!  Check her out!

MindRetrofit7 Angel posts such intriguing images and intriguing, beguiling poetry to match!

Hovercraft Doggy A pair of architects who post unusual and unique images on their photography blog.

The Unbearable Lightness of Being Me Beautiful and gripping photos from the Philippines.

Everyday Underwear If you haven’t caught this one yet, do.  Cindy is a funny gal, and gives a great everyday spin to living by faith and giggling through it!

Congratulations to all of these rays of sunshine!  May the sun shine in triplicate on all that you do!

    My sweet friend, Melody!
    Thank you so much for such a nice surprise, for being so kind to offer me an award and especially for the lovely reference. Although I’ve received it already as you mention, I am honored and thrilled to accept the award, simply because it’s coming from you 🙂
    I will post it in my blog as soon as possible.

    Well, I am thrilled to be on your list! And now I am following a few from your list of nominees as well! I love photography and artsy-fartsy stuff. So many people to follow, so little time! Ah, but now I have sunshine! Thanks so much for the award!

      You’re so welcome! Ha ha – I can’t believe I fit into the ‘artsy-fartsy’ category… I love finding new blogs – but it’s like you say, so many blogs, so little time. I don’t always get around the block as fast as I would like – but for the sake of my poor over-worked eyeballs, I have to at least blink once in a while. And pee – although I’m not sure how my eyeblls benefit from that one… 🙂
