I’ve been nominated for the Sunshine Award by fellow blogger Frangipani.  I connected with Frangipani because of our dual experience of caring for our mother with Alzheimer’s.  I enjoy Frangipani’s blog and I can so relate to the ups and downs of caring for our elderly parents.  Thank you for the award and I graciously accept – now I have some work to do!

The Rules:

The Sunshine Award comes with a few rules:

    • Include the award’s logo in a post or on your blog
    • Answer some questions about yourself
    • Nominate some 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!

The Questions:

Love or Money?

Of course money – I mean love –   can’t imagine being stuck in a relationship just for the money – it would be suffocating and boring!

High salary or job satisfaction?

I’d have to say job satisfaction – again, money is good but if you hate getting up every day not so sure it’s worth it!

Favorite Book?

I love to read but I never have enough time – recently I read Lawrence Hill’s  “Book of Negroes”.  Based on the African Slave trade to America.  Not exactly a nice read but the book is rich in history and I’m always amazed to read about the strength and triumphs of the human spirit, yet at the same time how evil and greedy humans can be.

Television character that you simply adore?

I hardly watch tv and I’m really not up to date – but I really enjoy the show Bones and the show Medium (I realize this show has been cancelled – tells you how up-to-date I am)- I love the two woman characters in this show – both are quirky and very smart.

Favourite Music – I love all music – I like Rock n’ roll, soft rock, classical, jazz, pretty much everything – and I love Elvis!

Favourite type of movie(comedy/romance/suspense/action/horror)

I like comedy, romance, action, dramatic, mystery, movies about the super natural.

When I feel very sad or depressed I…..

Meditate,  walk – especially walks by the ocean or wooded areas – anywhere I can feel the wonders of God.

Now for my nominees – there is no rhyme or reason – I just read what I like – could be personal like Frangipani’s, quirky or funny!

jesseseeker – makes me laugh – she is so funny!

Ordinary to Extraordinary – Micheline and Amy are two very talented woman – check out the art and crafts and do make sure you check out the OE Esty store.

Debt Free Decorating – Tabitha has inspired me to be debt free and happy!  Great tips for decorating and living debt free.

Kylie M Interiors – Another great interior designer blog – great ideas!

Nick Exposed – Nick takes awesome pictures and he finds beauty in the most simplest moments.

cookiemomma’s blog – Great blog and Christie is a smart cookie!

loveandleash – doing their best to rescue dogs and spread the idea of fostering dogs.

Again, thank you Frangipani for the award!

  1. Congratulations on your award! And thank you very much for passing it along to me, I am grateful. 🙂 And I enjoyed your Q&A. Especially the part about your favorite TV shows being ones that have already been cancelled! Too funny.

    1. Hi Tabitha – glad that it means so much to you – it is exciting when someone else recognizes your talent! You deserve the award and don’t think you don’t! I went to the persons blog who nominated me – right clicked on the pic and saved as into my computer files – I then added it to my sunshine blog award through media insert – if you go and take a look at my sidebar you can also add it as awards or acknowledgements – you do this by first adding the picture to your Sunshine award blog (questions and your list of recipients)- then go back -position your cursor over the picture in the blog – right click – copy – then go to dashboard – appearance – widgets – take the image menu and move it to your sideboard then go to the URL and paste – you should then see the picture in your sidebar – you can label that area anything you want – hope this all makes sense – too bad you didn’t live across the street – I’d join you for coffee and show you personally! Take care and keep writing..

      1. Gosh wouldn’t that be awesome! I love having coffee with friends. Thanks for explaining it. I’ll add it and nominate some others as soon as I can. Tonight I’m barely keeping my eyes straight ahead, so I better not try, lol.

  2. understand that – I was tired writing this last night and contradicted myself on the question about love or money – I said money – because in a relationship just for money would be suffocating and boring – I meant LOVE – lol – maybe I really just want money!
