Genuine Sunshine & Inspirational Hugs

Over the past little bit, Dianna at These Days of Mine has been very kind and very busy – she’s been busy sharing with me the following blogging awards: the Sunshine Award, The Genuine Blog Award, the HUG Award and, just this week, the Very Inspiring Blog Award.    Wowza!   I am happy to be included and thank Dianna (and Sundae) for honoring me so.

OK, now onto the rules.  Accepting The Sunshine Award requires that I answer the following questions:

Favorite color:  Blue. I love Navy Blue, Royal Blue and Turquoise Blue. I love Baby Blue, Robin’s egg Blue and Sky Blue.  Yep, pretty sure I love Blue.

Aren't the colors here dreamy? pinterest.com

Favorite animal:    Dogs, cats, horses, pigs and cows.  A farm girl can’t be expected to choose!   Don’t mind chickens but geese scare me.

Favorite number:     Can’t think of one.

Favorite non-alcoholic drink: Diet Dr. Pepper.  And I remember the first Dr. Pepper I ever drank – we were visiting family in WA State when my uncle bought a case of them; driving our family up a mountain, Dad pulled off at a scenic rest stop where we played in the JULY snow and drank Dr. Peppers.  Mmm.

Prefer Facebook or Twitter?   Have never tweeted and am losing interest in Facebook.

My passion:    I’m passionate about my marriage and I’m passionate about being a good example to my boys.  I’m passionate about how I dole out my time and to whom.  I’m passionate about a meal lovingly prepared and liberally shared. I’m passionate about the “little” things in life that make it delightful and I’m passionate about “big” things, too.  I’m passionate about learning.  What I’m passionate about really comes down to this: it’s what’s not negotiable. It’s what I could never, ever leave behind.  It’s how I behave and who I am whether anyone is around to know. I know, and that’s enough for me.

And of course, black leather Elvis … hello!

That's all right Mama ..

Prefer getting or giving presents:   Receiving gifts is always delightful but thinking of and finding “just that right little something” for another is the best.

Favorite pattern:  Blue & white …as in an antique china pattern.

Blue china; isn't it pretty?

Favorite day of the week:  Sundays

Favorite flower:  Lilacs

my 2011 Lilacs .. heavenly

The Genuine Blogger award doesn’t come with any stipulations, but I’m touched to receive it because it means that Dianna thinks I’m the real deal.  Thank you, friend.

As for the Hug (Hope Unites Globally) award, you can read its origins here. And the only requirement for accepting the HUG award is to pass it on to at least one person.  Ditto for the Very Inspiring Blog Award.

There are many wonderful people writing blogs and I can’t possibly highlight them all here — so today I am passing along these awards to a few of my favorites (see below).  They might not have time to accept right now but I hope you’ll make it a point to stop by their sites for a visit.    Cheers!
