Sunshine Award

Jo at Through the Keyhole has awarded me a Sunshine Award, and I feel a bit guilty because I haven't blogged in what feels like forever.  I asked for rain, and for it to cool off, and it did, but unfortunately it has rained some every day and the humidity is through the roof!
But back to the award, I want to thank Jo for giving it to me, and if you haven't read her blog, go, go right now!
As a recipient I'm supposed to answer some questions, so here goes.

What is your favorite color? Well that depends, I love blue and wear lots of it, but never paint anything blue in my house, I use a lot of greens there.

What is your favorite nonalcoholic drink?  That's an easy one, sweet iced tea, love it.  It's what the South runs on.

What is your favorite animal?  If we're talking domestic animal then it's cats, we've always had cats, Miss Kitty being the latest in a long line.  If we're talking wild animals then it would be elephants, always had a thing for them, don't know why, just do.

Do you prefer Twitter or Facebook?  I have accounts at both, but I'm not crazy about either.  But if pinned down I'd say Facebook, it helps me keep in touch with far flung family and friends.

What is your passion?  My family, there is nothing that comes before it.  Reading is a minor passion, but an important one to me, I read every day, have books scattered all over the house.

What is your favorite pattern?  Right now it's polka dots, in every color.

Do you prefer giving or receiving?  That's easy, I prefer giving, love seeing the look on someone's face when they get something unexpected.

What is your favorite number? The number 5, no reason, it just is.

What is your favorite day of the week?  Sunday because that's the day of the week my daughter and I talk on the phone, we Tweet and email during the week, but Sunday morning we talk on the phone and I look forward to it all week

I don't know how many Blogs I'm supposed to pass this award onto, but here are a few I really enjoy reading so I'm passing it to:

Cait O'Connor    A great blog and always wonderful paintings

Georgia Girl With An English Heart  Lives in Georgia, but love England as much as I do

Mr. Micawber's Recipe for Happiness  Loves England, crocheting, cooking and LOOOOONG bike rides

Hardup Hester's stretching the penny's blog  Because she makes me laugh

Don't feel obligated to answer the questions, just know that I enjoy reading your blog every day.


  1. Oh, thank you for giving me this!
    I am so S L O W at doing things, but I promise I will get to it and then pass it on to someone else.

    Thanks again! I am TICKLED!

  2. Thank you so much, Janet. (Sorry not to reply sooner - Google has been messing with my reading list and I'm missing posts right and left.)

    I'm so glad you're getting some rain.

  3. Thank you so much for your kind words. I have commented on 30 August and will do this.


A Bit of a Milestone

Friday I went to the commissary with Mac to grocery shop and I managed to get all of it done without having to sit down and rest.  That ma...
