Sunshine Award


What’s this?  Another award for moi?  I was dumbstruck to receive two awards in as many days.  I have to give a BIG thanks to Lissa at  She kindly nominated me for this award, and I am truly honored.  I love Lissa’s blog and I love that she’s a Supernatural fan :)  Without further ado, let me proceed with the rules for this award:

  • Include the award’s logo in a post or on your Blog.
  • Link to the person who nominated you.
  • Answer 10 questions about yourself.
  • Nominate 10 Bloggers.
  • Link your nominees to the post and comment on their Blogs, letting them know they have been nominated.

Since I am new to this award, I’ll answer some of the same questions that Lissa did.

  1. Favorite color:  Pink; but I wear a lot of black and gray and white … go figure.
  2. Favorite animal:  Cat (domestic)
  3. Favorite number:  3; I have 3 cats and that seems like an ideal number since I’ve cared for as few as one and as many as six at one time.
  4. Favorite non-alcoholic drink:  Earl Grey tea with a touch of milk and a packet of Equal; it’s what gets me going in the morning.
  5. Favorite alcoholic drink:  dirty gin martini; I had my first one ever two years ago in New Orleans and loved it, and so far, New Orleans is the only place where I’ve had dirty gin martinis
  6. Prefer Facebook or Twitter:  Twitter these days; I have a Facebook account but it’s not as much as fun as it used to be.
  7. My passion(s):  My husband, my cats, my writing, my friends, my knitting
  8. Prefer getting or giving presents:  I prefer giving.  I have everything I ever could need or want.
  9. Favorite city:  San Francisco; I only lived there 3 1/2 years, but it feels like home for me whenever I go back.
  10. Favorite TV show: Supernatural; the boys just get better as they get older :)

Drum roll for my 10 nominees:

I notified every one of the nominees.  Life is good!  Thanks again, Lissa, and thanks to everyone who follows my blog ;)

    Thank you so much! I am really flattered and happy that you thought about nominating my blog. I really love reading yours and I look forward to read more! Unfortunately as my blog has a very specific topic I can’t write a personal post :( however I linked your lovely blog from my “And” page, where there are also a couple of facts about me!:) Thank you again! :)


    • Thanks, Lau! I think you are handling your awards and the rules that come with them very well. Actually, a separate page is a great idea. I hope you get many more awards :) (And thanks again for the link to my blog.)
