The Sunshine Award...

Sun filled days and flowers are all part of springtime, and how fun to have received both on the same day...

My good friend, the phenomenal Mae Clair bestowed upon me the Sunshine Award...
This is a fun award that bloggers give to other bloggers “who positively and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere.”  I am truly honored that Mae thought of me. If you've not yet discovered Mae's blog, here's your perfect opportunity. Her posts are always full of fun surprises, so drop by and let her know that you came. She truly appreciates your comments!
So...the rules of the Sunshine Award are as follows:
1.     Thank the person who gave you the award in your blog post (thanks, Mae!)
2.     Answer the questions below
3.     Pass the award to 10-12 deserving and inspiring bloggers, inform them and link to their blogs.

*And my own personal rule? Take a minute, broaden your horizons, and check out the blogs of my nominees and Mae's nominees! In so doing you'll find some interesting blogs and discover a few new authors along the way! If you feel so inclined, join a few! You'll be glad you did!

So, here are the questions:
Favorite color:  This is a difficult question for me because in truth, I don’t have a single favorite.  I adore all shades of blue and purple. White is a favorite of mine and so is red...

Favorite animal:  Again, no single favorite. But out here where I live you’ll find dogs, horses, a mini-donkey, and cats. We love them all...and did I mention swans, chickens and ducks? They’re kind of cute too!

Favorite number: Seven

Favorite non-alcoholic drink: Like Mae, I usually have a glass of ice-water nearby. I’m also quite fond of lemonade.

Facebook or Twitter: Oh boy...

Your passion:  Well, other than my husband and family I’d have to say writing, delving into my family history, and just history in general...

Giving or getting presents:  Giving!

Favorite flower: Lilacs, roses and lilies...

And now I’d like to pass this award on to the following outstanding bloggers:

So tell me, who are YOUR favorite bloggers?


  1. Way cool! I've always enjoyed your blogs and I will be sure to check out the other authors as well. Congrats on your sunshine award. :)

  2. OMG, I've been offline for two days and missed this! LOVED learning all this stuff about you, Debbie. I have to laugh as I type his, because I've got my usual glass of iced water beside me. Nice to know I'm not the only one. :)

    I'm also very fond of the color white. And all those critters you have running around must have a lot of fun to daily life!

    Thanks for the kind words about my blog. And now I'm off to check out a few of the others you mentioned!

  3. Glad to see you back online... you were missed!
