The Sunshine Blog Award

Yowza! Marcie Colleen at The Write Routine, you must be crazy to award me – I only just set up my blog 17 days ago!!! As Michaleen Flynn says about Mary Kate Danaher in the Quiet Man: “That red head is no lie!” Thank you!

According to the award, or to receive the gold, I must fulfill all that Rumpelstiltskin requires, in his words:

  • Include the award’s logo in a post or on your blog
  • Answer 10 questions about yourself
  • Nominate 10-12 other fabulous bloggers
  • Link your nominees to the post and comment on their blogs, letting them know they have been nominated
  • Share the love and link the person who nominated you.

1. Favorite color:  I like color combinations: like pink and orange tulips

2. Favorite animal: fox

3. Favorite number: 9, because of the uncanny way you can remember its multiples

4. Favorite non-alcoholic drink: Orange Whip (OJ and milk): drink fast before it curdles!

5. Facebook or Twitter: Facebook; I like real tweets a lot though: cheeri-up!

6. My passion: (other than PBs) adult nonfiction, humor, old movies (particularly British), gardening, Hefeweizen – wait, how many was I allowed?!

7. Prefer giving or getting presents: Both! It is also a gift to have some one to give to, and I am happy to oblige!

8. Favorite pattern: plaid

10. Favorite flower: Anemone (see my fb timeline cover)
