Sunshine Award and Blog Update Status!

I’m a bit behind with this being Easter weekend and all, but I do have something to tide you over for the time being.

Today, I was awarded the Sunshine award by my friend and fellow writer, Katrina “Cat” DeLallo.

Here the answers to the questions-

1. Favorite color?
Red, especially Crimson and Burgundy shades.

2. Favorite animal?
Real: Dogs, but Foxes, rats, Wolves and weasels are in my top five.

Imaginary: Dragons, with Griffins and Minotaurs close behind.

3. Favorite number?
8 (Eight) , and it’s many lingual variations-

Acht (German)
Bah ( ) – (Chinese)
Hachi (八) (Japanese)
Huit (French)
Ocho (Spanish)
Otto (Italian)

4. Favorite drink?
Depends on the season-
Spring and Summer: Lemonade, Natural fruit punch, and iced tea

Fall and Winter: Hot cocoa and coffee, black, no cream, with sugar, Milk Tea, Apple Cider

Year Round: Milk, Orange Juice, Grape juice, and Apple Juice.

5. Facebook or Twitter?
Facebook, though I have to admit I’m starting to like Twitter a lot more than I ever thought possible, despite the strict word cap.

6. My passion(s)?
Aside from the obvious if you’ve followed the blog, Cooking and Music.

7. Getting or giving?

Both, but I do prefer give when I can.

8. Favorite pattern?
Checkerboard pattern in general, not just red and black squares on a checkers board.

On clothes, however, I’m partial to vertical pinstripes.

9. Favorite day of the week?
Sunday, because it’s not as manic as the rest of the week can be, for me, anyway.

10. Favorite flower?
That’s tough, but I’d have to say pink roses, because they represent Friendship and Happiness in flower language.

Here are the bloggers I’d like to share this honor with-

Adrienne Kress
Allyn Stotz
Gueh Yanting

Janice Hardy

I couldn’t think of 10 for this one, as I don’t want to mention the same number of folks, and I only pick people whose blogs I’ve read, and whose writing I’ve read before.

Insightful endorsement is part of my personal writer’s code of ethics.

Until next time,
Ciao for now.
