Thank you Daily Musings (check out that link to get inspired about planning) for nominating me for the Sunshine Award! Woo hoo!! Sweet. This happened over a month ago… I have been too busy to apply myself properly to this honor. But during the time between the nomination and my response, I have been buzzing around with a happy glow knowing the pleasure of an award acceptance and pay-it-forward awaited.

Note: For some bloggers, awards are a burden. If this is you, and this award comes your way, please accept your nomination as a hug.

Here are the rules:

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

This award requests that you give ten random facts about yourself:

1. I find photography thrilling, both seeing a shot to take myself and seeing what others do. And this surprises me… I never knew this about myself until I blogged.

2. I have to know what my philosophy is before I take a step.

3. I grew up surrounded by a huge library, a large hardback section and a separate paperback section.  

4. Listening to audio books is one of my great  pleasures. 

5. I have recently rediscovered the simple and amazing pleasure of taking a bath.

6. I sleep like the dead. 

7. I do not cry easily. But I get misty-eyed easily.

8. I am not fascinated by history at all, which is unfortunate, because my dad was a gifted history teacher. I like the future a lot more. I’m getting a lot better about being in the present, too. However, here is someone whose posts about history do, in fact, fascinate me: Ed Mooney.

9. I started writing when I was 8. But I count my start date as the year I started the first novel I would complete. Here is a picture of me holding my first completed novel.


10. I dislike doing things the same way twice.

 Here are the 10 Bloggers I’m nominating for their sunshine:

Sheri Kennedy

Laura Mackey

Cindy Knoke

Highlighting the Good and Beautiful Around Us

The Nice Thing About Strangers

Get Set and Go

Petals Unfolding

Delicious Daydreams

The Obvious and the Hidden

Margaret Lynette Sharp

  1. Congrats! Thanks for the nomination, and I LOVE the picture of you with your first completed novel. I never thought to take such a photo, though I have the cumbersome manuscript saved in a notebook much like yours. Enjoy your day full of Sunshine!


    1. Thanks, Paige! You have the most amazing posts. You are such a good writer! You really take the time on your blog posts. The detail about the guy with the fireplace implement was awesome. I was biting my nails the whole time. I thought he was going to electrocute himself!

      I know I’m really lucky about my sleeping talent. 😉 It used to be an embarrassment when I was young, but now I know enough people who don’t sleep well that I know I’m lucky!
