I love Sunshine & I received the Sunshine blogger Award!

Ever need a little something of encouragement that arrives at just the right time? I do now and again. Thanks to Darlene Foster, on March 1 I was given the Sunshine Award! What a lovely, and appreciated blogger award.

This award comes with the requirement to answer “ten easy questions”, but for me it’s not so easy. I cannot pinpoint favourites very well, but I told Darlene maybe it’s because I like so many things. You’ll see how indecisive I am with naming just one thing.

Now, on with the show —

Of course, the Sunshine Award has some rules:

  • Include the award’s logo in a post or on your blog
  • Answer 10 questions about yourself
  • Nominate 10-12 other fabulous bloggers
  • Link your nominees to the post and comment on their blogs, letting them know they have been nominated
  • Share the love and link the person who nominated you.


Favorite color: This varies, sometimes pink, sometimes green … or purple

Favorite animal: donkey, elephant, my own dog, – personality is important. 😉

Favorite number: 7, or 4 because I often seem to prefer things to be even

Favorite non-alcoholic drink: ice water with lemon, Rooibos tea, fruity or spicy herbal tea

Prefer Facebook or Twitter? definitely Twitter, I am not convinced about Facebook.

My passion: helping and encouraging others; reading/writing

Prefer getting or giving presents: Giving. Although it’s fun to receive gifts there is so much enjoyment in giving to bless others, especially if it’s a ‘just because’ gift.

Favorite pattern: Snowflakes come in amazing patterns, and frost on window panes can make exquisite patterns

Favorite day of the week: any day of peace in my life – and the rare days I can write and/or read without interruption or other obligations – is a great day. Also, I tend to be reclusive, if possible, to regenerate and think.

Favorite flower: the Mammoth Russian Sunflower


I hereby pass forward this cheery Sunshine Award to some worthy bloggers whose writing I have discovered and enjoy for one reason or another – even though I don’t get to visit many very often. Give yourself a treat by checking them out.


And that’s it! Again, thanks Darlene. I will be notifying all the above to let them know of their award. Please visit these wonderful people, including Darlene who can be found at http://darlenefoster.wordpress.com/

Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings! 🙂

    Congrats Lynn and thank you so much. May you have a sunshine week ahead!


    • Thanks, Catherine .. and enjoy your award. I will appreciate every bit of sunshine we get this week of snow, rain, and hope. 🙂 Blessings on yours, too.


  3. Thanks for passing the sunshine to me. Ironically, we have had clouds and snow the past 3 or 4 days and now the sun is peeking out! Have a great day!

    Awe thank you Lynn.
    Love a little cheery sunshine


  5. Thank you Ms. Davidson!! I am happy you think I am a “worthy blogger” ! 🙂 We had sunshine here today but it was COLD! I don’t know what a Mammoth Russian Sunflower looks like…I am going to google it! I liked reading your “easy” question answers! Do donkeys have a personality??


    • You are most welcome, Erik. It was cold here today, too, with the sunshine.
      oh my yes, donkeys do have personality. A friend of mine used to have one – a donkey, I mean. 😉

      When you figure out what my favourite sunflower looks like, picture it eleven feet tall with a huge flower head – at least a foot wide, and a tiny hummingbird checking it out. 🙂 I saw this in my own garden one summer. Amazing.


  6. I am so glad you enjoyed the Sunshine Award. I tried to pass it on to the sunshine lover bloggers. Loved your answers. I too have trouble deciding on a favourite thing as it can change daily. May you have many sunshiney days ahead!!
