YOU - Are My Sunshine!

What a nice, nice surprise to find this award from the talented Donna from Distressed Donna Down Home.    Also, last week, Alana at All Is Amazing nominated me, but I was having too many 'technical' problems and couldn't respond.  If you are not a follower, please stop by and see what these lovely ladies are up to; they are as entertaining as they are inspiring!  Thank you so much to both of you!

To list all of the fabulous blogs that have inspired me would be impossible; there are way too many!  As a new blogger, though, I would like to recognize the following and pass this award on to them; I hope that, if you have not already, you would visit them and see for yourselves!

One of the stipulations for this award is that you answer some questions; here are mine!

1.  Favorite color?  YELLOW; the color of sunshine!

2.  Favorite animal?  Dogs, especially rescued dogs and pound puppies!

3.  Favorite number? Two; two fabulous sons!

4.  Favorite drink?   A great glass of ice cold sweet tea; lots of ice; lots of lemon, LaCroix sparkling water; the occasional (!) glass of Chardonnay!

5.  Facebook or Twitter?  Facebook for sure.  Started FB to keep up with kids and grands, but I've caught up with so many people from HS and college...and great blogs as well!

6.  Good book or good movie?  Adore 'One Writer's Beginnings' by Eudora Welty (actually all of her books); Tennessee Williams; 'A Confederacy of Dunces'; 'The Help' (book and movie).  

7.  My passion? Seeing beauty in nature; homekeeping for the Headmaster; family and friend relationships

8.  Giving or getting presents? Giving, for sure!!  MY present is seeing the joy of the recipients!

9.  Favorite day? Any!  I'm retired!!!
10. Favorite flower? Peonies; roses; irises; lilies; blue hydrangeas (though mine are pink and not likely to change any time soon); sweet peas; zinnias

Here is how this award works:

  • Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them
  • Answer the above 10 questions about yourself
  • Select bloggers that inspire you, link their blogs to your post and let them know they’ve been awarded the Sunshine Award!
  • Don’t forget to copy and paste the award on your blog!
