Sunshine Award

It has happened again! I have received the Sunshine Award! I am actually quite surprised by this. Yes I have gotten a few awards on my blog in the past but man each time I receive one I am always shocked. First off let me thank Missy Frye for the nomination.

Because I have received this award I now need to answer the following questions:

Favorite number: 27
Favorite Non-alcoholic drink: Dr Pepper
Facebook or Twitter: Facebook, but only because I have yet to get a Twitter account
My Passion: Reading and writing.
Favorite pattern: That’s a tough one, I’m going to say either swirls or tribal pattern.
Favorite Day of the Week: Saturday.
Favorite Flower: African Violet

Now, I must nominate ten bloggers to pass the award on to. Since I have somewhat exhausted my list of bloggers I regularly follow with the last few rewards I have received and always struggle to get ten listed I am going to do this part slightly different. This time I will list ten blogs I found today that caught my eye. And they are, in no particular order:

  1. Books For Breakfast
  2. Annie Cardi
  3. London Is For Living
  4. Merry Farmer
  5. Bighorn Mountain Mama
  6. Young Cousin Tim
  7. Reading With Analysis
  8. Brook’s Books
  9. Up All Night Reading
  10. Book Journey

And there you have it folks. Hope you enjoy the blogs I have listed here, and to those I passed the award on be sure to pass it on as well


The Sunshine Award

Last week I was passed the Sunshine Award by my friend, T.L Bodine. Unfortunately this came at a time when my in-laws were visiting and thus stripped me of all my privacy and my online time. So while this is a week late I am still very excited about being given this award.

How the award works is this. You copy the above award picture into a post and link back to the person who gave you the award.  You then must either answer 10 random questions or give 7 random facts about yourself.  Then spread the award along to 10 other bloggers by tagging them!

I have decided to go with seven random facts about myself instead of answering ten random questions. Why? Simply because I felt that figuring out what those ten questions would be would take far more time than I have. So random facts it is.

  1. Contrary to what many people may think about me I am quite anti-social and tend to avoid people at all costs.
  2. If it weren’t for Dr. Pepper I would struggle to make it through each and every day. It is my drug and I am very much addicted to it.
  3. I spend more hours in front of the computer each day than I care to admit to. If you are looking for an exact number I would say about 14 hours if not more. Sad but true.
  4. I have over 100 horse figurines and models around my desk area.
  5. If I could do anything in the world and not have to worry about income or other responsibilities at that time I would follow the rodeo circuit for an entire year, going to every single rodeo I could get to in that time.
  6. After two years of owning it, I still dislike my Kindle. I will explain the reasons why in a future post.
  7. I start way too many projects than I will ever be able to finish at one time, thus I am forced to abandon most of them so I can get a single one done. From what I understand this is a trait that most Gemini have.

There we have it, seven random facts. I almost did more but stopped myself so that I didn’t exhaust all my effort on that and have nothing left for the remainder of the post. Now onto passing on this award to others. I will do my best to list ten different people, however my blog stalking abilities are not what they have been in the past so I may or may not reach that goal.

And the award(s) go to:

Well I almost made it to ten. I tried but just couldn’t reach that goal. Still, I got over half way to ten so that’s pretty darned good in my book.
