Wow, I feel special now. After getting nominated for the versatile blogger award last week, now another award nomination! The Fotobird has nominated me for the sunshine award. This is an award for bloggers who creatively and positively inspire others in the blogosphere. Thanks for the love!
All these blog-to-blog awards come with some rules. The rules for this one include posting the award logo in a post or on the blog, answering 10 specific questions, and nominating 10-12 other bloggers. Also to put comments about their blogs with links to them on the post, and comment on their blog informing them of the nomination. Also include a link to the person who nominated you.
So here’s the 10 Questions
1. What is your favorite color?
Blue, the color of the sky on a sunny day. (A rare occurrence here in the rainy Pacific Northwest.) Also the color of the sea, in particular the vivid bright blue of the warm seas near the islands of the Caribbean.
2. What is your favorite animal?
I like all animals (well I might not go so far as to like slugs). I’ve had a variety of different pets over the years, though currently I just have one dog and two horses. One thing I’ve never had though is a real live gecko and I think geckos are awesome.
3. What is your favorite number?
I could go with the standard lucky 7 on this, but to be a little different I’m going to say the one on my paycheck. Except it’s never big enough.
4. What is your favorite non-alcoholic drink?
Everything I drink is non-alcoholic. Hard to pick a favorite, but I’ll go with chocolate milk.
5. Do you prefer Facebook or Twitter?
I have to say Facebook on that (check out My Cruise Stories Facebook Page).
6. What is your passion?
Traveling. There’s so much to see in this world. That’s one reason cruises are so great, unpack once and see several different places while the getting there is as much fun as the being there.
7. Prefer Getting or Giving Presents?
Giving definitely. Opening gifts is anti-climactic compared to shopping for that special gift that I think someone else will love. (Of course there’s no guarantee they won’t think it’s useless junk.)
8. What is your favorite pattern?
Um, I haven’t used a pattern for anything since Jr. High Home Ec sewing class… OK, all kidding aside, I’ll go with fluffy white clouds in a blue sky. Maybe that’s not a standard pattern like stripes or plaid or something, but whatever.
9. What is your favorite day of the week?
Honestly, any day I don’t have to go to work. But if I had to pick just one I’ll say Sunday. By then usually the major work for the weekend is done.
10. One Thing Which I Would Like to Improve About Myself?
I’d like to get in better shape. It’s just so hard to find the time to exercise on a regular basis.
Sunshine on My Shoulder – It’s the sunshine award, how could I not nominate a blogger who goes by the name of Sunshine? Plus she jumped off a cliff while cave tubing in Belize. (They didn’t do the cliff thing when I went cave tubing.)
Travel . Culture . Food – She nominated me for the versatile blogger award, which definitely brought sunshine to my day. Time to share the love.
Travel With Kat – Virtually travel the world through all the photos on this blog.
Weird News Around the Bend – Oddball news items that are so offbeat they’re entertaining.
1001 Scribbles – lots of great photos to brighten the day
Denisa Aricescu – it’s in a foreign language, but the layout is cute and she “likes” all my posts, and that definitely brings me sunshine.
Modern Scottie Dog – lots of cute dog photos, and what’s better than a dog to bring sunshine to any day
Writing With Light – a photoblog
Pause – mostly a photoblog
Belle Grove Plantation -Lots of history and a bed & breakfast that looks like a nice place to stay.
