Sunshine Award

sunshine-awardThanks  znjavid!

I love that you thought of me for this award. She and I have had fun chatting about her children’s book, my husband’s clothes, and the differences between grocery stores in Dubai and Salt Lake City. Check out her blog at:

Rules for the Sunshine Award:

1. Use the Sunshine Award logo in the post.
2. Link to whoever nominated you.
3. Write ten pieces of information about yourself.
4. Nominate ten fellow bloggers, “who positively and creatively inspire others in the       blogosphere”.
5. Leave a comment on the nominees’ blogs to tell them of the award.

Ten things about myself:

  1. I love children, books and dogs.
  2. If I had to choose between warm chocolate chip cookies, or fresh out the oven bread – to live without for the rest of my life, my brain would explode.
  3. If I had a million dollars to donate to the charity of my choice I would give it to the Best Friends Animal Shelter, and Alzheimer’s research.  (The latter may be a selfish bequest as I’m a little concerned about my own memory lately.)
  4. I like to walk, and appreciate my walking buddies who stand on my driveway at 6:15 A.M. and guilt me into coming out in the cold.
  5. My favorite book is Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte.
  6. Favorite movie is the same, but only the Timothy Dalton version.
  7. I love Downton Abby but am so mad at them for the Matthew situation that I’m threatening to boycott season three.
  8. I’m working on a historical fiction/inspirational/romance novel entitled Days of Grace. It’s actually done but I have to work up the nerve to submit it.
  9. I love Masterpiece Theatre. Favorites are Duchess of Duke Street, Larkrise to Candleford, and Bramwell.
  10. I love to write and can get lost for hours when I’m at it.

  3. Thank you so much for the nomination and I have reciprocated the honor to you! Oh, by the way, I have always had such a crush on Timothy Dalton, absolutely! I first saw him in Wuthering Heights, that did it for me! 🙂

      • Oh, YES, of course Mr. Rochester, I just watched Jane Eyre, with him in the male lead a couple weeks after my surgery. I watched the whole series on Netflix. I could watch him all day long. ::sigh::

  4. Great answers! You need to work on that novel submission though. The answer is always no if you never ask, right? And I wish I had walking buddies. I definitely need the motivation, but probably not at 6:15 a.m. 🙂

    And thanks for the nomination–what an honor! I’ll get something posted soon.

    • Here’s the problem, Istarted this blog so I could take a break from my book, then go back and polish it with new perspective. Now I don’t have time for the book because I’m blogging. I may have to take a couple of weeks off from blogging to submit the book. Oh for more hours in the day.

      • Wow, I’m sort of in the same place. I finished my first draft around the end of July. I set it aside and took a couple of workshops, with the intent of revising the draft again in a month or so with fresh eyes. Well, one of the workshops was about creating an online presence, including a blog. So, I started up the blog and 3 months later I was finally able to get back to the book. But I had to cut my Wednesday post so I’m only really blogging twice a week, but it still takes a fair amount of time, especially if you want to remain engaged in the community. I think it is a struggle all writers deal with, but I do love the blogging. I’ve met some great people and it has challenged me to come up with fresh ideas every week.

        I agree, if only there were more hours in the day. Good luck with your writing!

    • Very helpful. I like when someone explains things in language I can understand. I didn’t realize you were a wordpress blog, – found you on Google – or I would have let you know.

      • Thank you so much. It makes me very happy that I am able to help you. Good to know that you found me on Google as I only joined the Google + network this year.

  5. Thank you so much! I have been away from my blogging for a few weeks due to a move so I am late in the game here, but tickled to come back and find this nomination. I will do my part asap. And yes this blogging is fun and addictive!

I'd love to hear from you.
