This and that: I received a little Sunshine and passing it around.

I received a little Sunshine and passing it around.

I have been nominated for the Sunshine Award by Lizy at Just Dip it in Chocolate.  Lizy is a beautiful person and a wonderful friend.  It is a honour and a privilege to accept this award from her and to be included with all the other great bloggers that she nominated.  To see her post, head over HERE.

Sunshine Award

With this award there is a couple of things that I have to do and also to pass onto my nominees.  I have to answer 10 questions and nominated 10 other bloggers for this award.  

1. Favorite Colour
2. Favorite Animal
3. Favorite Number
4. Favorite Non-Alcoholic Drink
5.  Favorite Alcoholic Drink
6.  Facebook or twitter
7.  My passions
8.  Giving or Receiving Gifts
9.  Favorite City
10.  Favorite TV Show

My Answers:
1.  Favorite Colour ~ I am not even sure that I have a favorite colour, but if I had to chose I would have to say yellow.

2.  Favorite Animal ~ This one was easy and required no thought.  My favorite animal is the elephant.  I am not sure why but it is and I even sat on a bus for 12 hours on a very bumpy road ( I had bruises on the back of my legs from hitting the seat) to see elephants in the natural surrounding in Ghana.  This picture was taken in Mole Park, Ghana and I was less then 50 yards away from it.

3.  Favorite Number ~  This question took a little more thought.  Again, I am not sure if I have a favorite number but if I had to pick one I would say 15... Why you ask, this is my anniversary day and the most important day of my life so far.

4.  Favorite Non-alcoholic Drink ~ Chai tea hands down.  I am drinking a cup as I write this.  Although I like many different teas, Chai is something that I drink every day if not a few times during the day.  Chai with a splash of French Vanilla cream, it can't get any better.

5.  Favorite Alcoholic Drink ~ I don't drink alcohol so this question I will have to pass.

6.  Facebook or Twitter  I am still learning twitter so I will have to go with Facebook.

 7.  My passions ~ The biggest passion in my life would be my Religion, followed by my husband and then cooking, photography and crafts.

8.   Giving or Receiving Gifts ~ I love giving gifts.  Don't get me wrong I love receiving gifts too, but I find more joy in giving them and watching the recipient as they open what I think is something that they will enjoy.

9.  Favorite City ~ I have traveled what I think has been quite a bit and would like to continue to travel.  I have many place that I enjoyed visiting. Each place has it own beauty.  I would have to say my favorite place is my home province of Saskatchewan and I miss it dearly.  I spent a lot of time living in Saskatoon and loved the bridges.  I do have some pictures of the city but none of the pictures aren't on disk.

10.  Favorite TV Shows ~ This is another one that I would have to pass as I have no favorite show.

My Nominees:
This is probably one of the hardest parts of receiving an award like this own, picking only 10 bloggers.  Everyone of the blogs that I follow bring some sunshine in my life.  I love popping over and reading what they are doing whether it is taking pictures, cooking or doing some crafts or even just chit-chatting about every day life.  I find that I take something away from everyone.  So, although I would like to nominate everyone I can only nominate ten and here are the ten that I nominate in no particular order. 
1.  Cindy ~ North of Wiaton
2.  Pamela ~ Playing With My Camera
3.  Daphne ~ Ivy, Phyllis & Me
4.  Katie ~ Let Them Eat Healthy
6.  Beth ~ The First Year Blog
7.  Marlene ~ Nosh My Way
9.  Marisa ~ Tasty Delights
10. Danielle ~ Cozycakes Cottage

I am sorry but I cannot accept Anonymous comments anymore as I am getting too many spam. I hope that you will comment with an ID user. Thanks for understanding.

I will not be accepting comments that have links on them. I will not delete them but because of google's stance on links I do not want to have any problems with my blog. Thank you for your understanding.
