Blog Awards and a Sundae Tease

Over the course of the past couple of weeks, I’ve been the recipient of several new blog awards.

“Mama”, at Mama’s Empty Nest, nominated me for the Sunshine Award. That one actually hit home with me. Back in the prehistoric old CB radio days, “Sunshine” was my handle. Here’s the pretty Sunshine Award logo.

Accepting The Sunshine Award requires that I answer these questions:

Favorite color:  Blue. Always has been.

Favorite animal:  Cats. There haven’t been many periods in my life that I wasn’t owned by a kitty.

Favorite number:  Two.

Favorite non-alcoholic drink: Diet Coke

Prefer Facebook or Twitter? Facebook

My passion:   My family. (Motor Man says blogging runs a close second.)

Prefer getting or giving presents:  Giving. I love finding just the right something for someone.

Favorite pattern: Hmm. Never really thought about it. I love a country stripe. In blues.

Favorite day of the week:  Friday.  Motor Man, Marshall and I have dinner together every Friday evening.

Favorite flower:  Blue hydrangeas.

AND, my good blogging buddy, Georgette, presented me with four (count ’em: 4) awards: The Liebster and Versatile Blog Awards (which I had been given previously), The Genuine Blogger Award and The Hug Award.

The Genuine Blogger award doesn’t come with any stipulations, but I’m really tickled to receive it. Genuine is good.

As for the Hug (Hope Unites Globally) award, you can read all about the origins of that here. And the only requirement for accepting the HUG award is to pass it on to at least one other person.

I am passing along these awards to the following bloggers.

Linda at The Road Awaits.  I actually knew Linda years ago when my sister was good friends with her parents. Her blog is fairly new, but I look forward to reading it every day.

Sam at One Spoiled Cat.  Okay, so Sam’s “mom”, Pam, really writes for him. It’s a combined effort, because I’m pretty sure Sam dictates what he wants Pam to write. Pam’s an author, so all this writing comes naturally to her.

Cheryl at The Farmer’s Daughter. Cheryl shares beautiful photos and posts about a variety of topics.

MJ at Emjay And Them. I just love MJ’s outlook on life.  And I can count on her to leave nice comments on my blog.

Renee at Writingfeemail. Renee is also an author. She “cuts right to the chase” in her posts, and many times, I find myself learning something new after visiting her blog.

So there you have it. My new blog award collection. And for those of you who aren’t into blog awards, here’s a tease. Just what is Sundae girl about to pounce on in this picture? The answer when Sundae takes over this blog for another edition of “Sundae Says” on Monday. Tune in!
