A Little Sunshine


Arriving home after a long, hectic day in the office, I was delighted to find a little bit of sunshine waiting for me.  My friend McGuffy Ann over at McGuffy's Reader presented me with The Sunshine Award - just what I needed to perk up my droopy spirits.  Thanks McGuffy Ann!  She and I share a love for critters, and especially cats. McGuffy also does some wonderful book reviews, my reading list grows everytime I stop by her blog!

The rules of the Sunshine Award require me to answer the following questions.  Knowing how I love questions, how could I resist? :-)
1. Favorite color - royal purple, followed closely by bright lemon yellow
2. Favorite animal - cats! If you didn't know that by now, you haven't been here long.
3. Favorite number - seven and thirteen, both have always been lucky for me
4. Favorite non-alcoholic drink - Southern style sweet tea - iced, no lemon
5. Facebook or Twitter - Facebook only to keep in touch with a lot of folks. I have a Twitter account, haven't looked at it in months.  Some folks take it to the extreme, noting everything they do all day and night.  I mean really, who cares?!  Same goes for turning Facebook into a personal diary. The whole world doesn't need to know your issues!
6. My passion - my husband, my children, my cats, and  preaching the gospel of hope!
7. Giving presents or getting presents - Definitely giving.  While I love to be surprised by small romantic gestures, and my husband is the master of that, watching someone's eyes light up because you surprised them with the perfect gift when they aren't expecting one... that's priceless!
8. Favorite pattern - Anything bright and colorful -  floral is fun, pieced star quilts such as my Lakota friends make are amazing, and  I love tie-dyed stuff too - that's no surprise, is it? :-)
9. Favorite day of the week - Saturday - a day all to myself until about 4 PM, then it's date night with Papa Bear!
10. Favorite flower - Bright yellow roses, Sterling Silver roses, canna lilies, calla lilies, Asiatic lilies, tulips, pansies and mossroses.  I can't pick just one!

Now I'm supposed to tag some others with this award, but I'm not much of a tagger, so if you like it, grab it, and answer the questions that go along with it! It's fun to read what other folks favorite things are.  Another endeavor in my never ending quest to know all about you! :-)

TGIF coming up tomorrow, and it' couldn't happen any sooner, it's been one hell of a week! I am happy to report that as of this morning we  FINALLY have a scanner up and working in the office, two of them in fact. Now to start with the mountain-size backlog of paperwork to be scanned and attached.  If I don't show up here by tomorrow night, come quick with shovels, it means I'm buried under a paper avalanche and didn't have time to grab my iPhone before it hit!

    1. I made good headway on the paperwork today, Louise, I actually had a peaceful, productive day, and felt pretty good about it. Nice way to end the week!

  2. This was a fun read and I really enjoyed the question/answer about giving/receiving gifts! I love doing both. I'm a big shopoholic, and I'm just as happy to be buying things for friends and family, as I am to be shopping for myself.

    Most recently had a silk blouse made for my mom and sent it to her in the mail. It fit perfectly and she really liked it - and all her sisters were crazy about it too. It's always fun when a gift is such a success!

    The beach I'm going to is full of fun shops from all over the region... but I'm going to try my level best not to spend too much!

    1. I'm not much of a shopper for myself, Bozo, but I love giving gifts that remind me of someone I care about. Much more fun that expected gifts like on Christmas. I bet your mom was trilled about her silk blouse, especially coming from a place she loves so much. You are an awesome daughter! We'll be looking forward to your beach tales, and maybe some photos??!

    1. Thanks, Elsie! Date night is sacred to us, it should be for all couples, you really need that time to just be together and enjoy doing something relaxing/fun.

  4. I'm so glad I chose you. We really have a a lot of similar ways & thoughts. You have Lakota friends; I have been in awe of them, all of my life. I love sweet tea; no lemon. Yes; Bill is my #1 passion, but that goes without saying (he gets embarrassed easily!).
    Congrats. Sorry I missed OQW...next week!! :)

    1. I've always been charmed by the way the Internet and Universe work together to bring people in contact that share similar interests and mindsets yet would never meet up in regular life. I have friends from around the world that I treasure and I'm so happy to have found another in you! :-)

    1. I love Sunday mornings - slow and quiet, and Sunday afternoons, whether we are working, playing, or relaxing, but Sunday nights always bring me down - I want more weekend and less work week, I want more time to play!!

  6. Preaching the gospel of hope. I really like that. I've never seen sterling silver roses. They sound gorgeous. I must see if I can find some somewhere.

    1. I like the sound of that too Selma, maybe preachers need to focus more on hope and less on hellfire??

      Sterling Silver roses are wonderful, you can Google them to see their beautiful shade of lavender!
