A Ray of Sunshine

I’m not quite sure how I missed it, but Tracey at Snagglewordz bestowed upon me this marvelous award! Now my day is full of sunshine!

According to the rules I answer the 10 questions about myself and choose ten worthy blogs to receive the award.

1st the questions:

Favorite colour: Green! (and sometimes Purple)

Favorite animal: It used to be the raccoon – when I was a kid, but now, I’d have to say FROGS!!

Favorite number: 5

Favorite non-alcoholic drink: Berry Smoothies mmmmmmmmm

Facebook or Twitter? Considering I hardly even know what to do with Twitter, I’d have to say Facebook.

My passion: Writing, Music, & My family

Getting or giving presents? Giving – though I do love a surprise 🙂

Favorite pattern: the ones that my kids make in my writing notebooks (or apparantly on my sheets – someone found a pen while I was gone….)

Favorite day of the week: Saturday & Sunday because the family’s usually all together those days 😀

Favorite flower: Black-eyed Susan (they’re like mini sunflowers – only cooler 😀 )

And now for 10 blogs:

Earwax Tastes Like Crayons

Chocolate Phoenix

Feather Sky

This Little Miggy Stayed Home

Simply, Me


Life and Times of the Motherly Insane

Glossary of Happy Endings

Nostalgic Nana

Elijah & Samson

Thanks again, Tracey! 😀

Awe Shucks


I have had a blogging award bestowed upon me which requires me to talk about it and choose five – only five? – worthy blogs to bestow this grand award on. Nancy was the one that gave me this award.

I feel greatly honored, especially since I feel like I was a very lame blogger this last year. I am trying to resolve to be more interesting – We will see if it actually happens or not. 🙂

Anyway, I tag the following:

Zen Mama

Aww Shucks Folks

Two of my sweet friends, Deb and Nancy, have awarded me with this:

 Thinking Blogger Award

Now, when you are chosen for this great and noble honor, you are supposed to choose five blogs that you think deserve this award and bestow it lovingly upon them. Not just any five blogs however, five blogs that make you think – which brings up the question how I managed to get this award 🙂 Thanks much you two 🙂

Anyway here are the official rules:
1. If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think,
2. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme,
3. Optional: Proudly display the ‘Thinking Blogger Award’ with a link to the post that you wrote (here is an alternative silver version if gold doesn’t fit your blog).

*Now here is my disclaimer: I love all my blogging friends, and if I don’t tag you, don’t hate me, I do only get to choose five after all – and no fighting or squabbling over the shiny award – it might get tarnished – heh 🙂

Here they are (in no particular order)

1. Karen
2. Sariah
3. Proud Mum – or Zen Mama now
4. April
And the fifth and fianl award goes to:
5. Fourth Fret – I know she is not blogging anymore and has erased all of her posts but one, but I must say that hers was a blog that I looked forward to reading everyday, and along with the others listed here, it truly did make me think. I miss her terribly, and I hope some day Fourth Fret reenters the blog world. So in memory of an incredible blog and blogger I give my final award.

As for the others I listed, I figured I could say why I chose them for the thinking blogger award, but then where is the fun in that? It would rob you of the joy of reading their blogs to see why I think they are so great, so go read, and be sure to say hi when you do. 🙂
