A MAJOR Award!

I was nominated by floatinggold.  Wow!  What an honor!  I don’t get nominated for much so this is really amazing!  Thankyou!

No Not this one:


This one! 

Check her blog: https://wordpress.com/read/blogs/128220602/posts/4408

She is participating in the NaNoWriMo and I’m anxious to see what she wrote in that.  I also participated and got my 50K words, but I can’t seem to find a satisfactory ending.


  • Thank blogger(s) who nominated you in the blog post and link back to their blog.
  • Answer the questions the blogger asked you.
  • Nominate new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions.
  • List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or on your blog.

In answer to her questions:


  1. What scares you?  When my kids are driving in bad weather, even though they’re not “kids” anymore.
  2. If you could guarantee living until you’re 100 years old, would you?  There’s So much I want to see and experience yet!  There is so much I need to do.  Absolutely would want to live to 100, but am fine if I don’t make it.
  3. What would your dream vacation be like?  I’ve had several dream vacations:  Alaskan Cruise, 3 International Choir Festivals (Coventry, Bern, and Rome), National Parks, State Parks… Each vacation I take starts out as a dream, and when we go, I journal it so I can remember what I took pictures of, how I felt, who was with me, what we did, what we ate, what new thing I learned every day.
  4. What’s your morning routine?  Routine?  People have routines?
  5. What is your biggest motivation?  Looking forward to a completed project, a trip, an accomplishment, a new certification.
  6. What is your favorite time of day and why? I love mornings, it’s quiet so I can think.  Sometimes I have special coffee or tea.  I write or read or think.
  7. When do you write most and why? (day of week, time of day, etc.) I write all times of the day.  If I’ve had a revelation during the night, I write like a mad woman in the morning so I don’t forget.  If I’m having a conversation with someone and they say something that sounds like one of my characters, I rush home to get it down.  If I’m scrolling through Facebook and I catch something really bizarre, I think about it for a while and then write something in my blog.

I’d like to nominate:



When I read their posts, I’m always uplifted and more positive.  They bring sunshine into my life.

These are my questions:

  1. Where do you feel the happiest?  How does being there make you happy?
  2. What inspires you most?
  3. What is your favorite type of weather?
  4. If you could live for a month anywhere in the world, where would you go?
  5. What is the favorite activity you do with your best buds?
  6. What have you always wanted to do that’s still on your bucket list?
  7. Is it the journey or the destination that’s most important to you?
  8. If you could fix one mental thing about yourself, what would it be and why?
  9. Have you ever laughed hard enough to have milk come out of your nose?
  10. What age group do you love the most?
  11. When my grandmother was born, there were no cars or planes or interstates or computers, and she lived through 2 world wars.  If you live to be 100, what changes would you expect to see?  (Yes you may use your crystal ball.)

  1. Thanks! It’s a sorry thing when people plan so much for their dream vacations, and then they don’t go as they’d planned. They concentrate on what went wrong, and how this wasn’t what they expected because they expected so much. But the really sad thing is that they think they’ll never have more than one dream vacation. Of course there are disappointments on any trip, but there are also unexpected pleasures too. If one journals the vacations, one can re-read all the adventures and bring up the best that happened. It all depends on how you write it up.
