Last week Polly of caughtwriting tagged me with a lighthearted award known as The Sunshine Award. It’s a fun little award/meme that lets me tell you, my gentle readers, a bit more about myself.
The rules are as follows: 1. Thank the person who gave me this award; 2. Answer the questions below – its all about favourite things; 3. Pass on the award to other sunshine-y bloggers and tell them about it.
1. The Thank You.
Thank you Polly for thinking of me. It’s always fun to find out what other bloggers have to say about the same topics. I think that’s why I like memes so much. They are a pleasant little peek into someone else’s life.
2. The Questions.
Today it is aqua + cyan + teal. Turquoise jewelry. Ocean waves. Soothing and relaxing colors that seem to call to me as the heat of summer is upon us.
Cats. First of all I think that cats are very handsome animals. Then, of course, I like how a cat with one disparaging glance can put anyone or anything in its place. Good looks + attitude. What’s not to admire?
Eight. What I think is really cool about eight is that if you write it numerically, then lay it on its side, you will have the symbol for infinity. Such versatility charms me.
Vodka. Preferably Grey Goose on the rocks with a twist of lemon. It’s a simple and straightforward drink– easy to make, nice to sip, pretty to look when served in a cut crystal tumbler.
Facebook or Twitter?
Twitter, definitely. I find it more informative than FB. I like how Twitter’s 140 character limit forces everyone to get to the point. And it just seems more fun to me. In the moment. A little wacky.
Interior design. Over the years I’ve gotten more interested in knowing about design principles & color combos & furniture styles. Then using what I’ve learned I’ve been slowly redecorating our home so the it is more inviting + cheerful + livable. When I’m not stressed out about all the expensive choices I’m making, I rather enjoy being an active amateur interior designer.
Giving or receiving presents?
I find the idea of giving or receiving presents problematic. I don’t enjoy shopping for anything, ever– nor do I feel like anyone needs to give me a present for anything, ever. All of which means that I’m uncomfortable with both the giving and receiving of presents. Truthfully, I’d rather spend time with the people who I love than spend time messing around with presents for them.
Tuesday. Don’t know why. I just like it.
Lately I’ve been on a daisy and zinnia kick. The former because they seem to grow anywhere– and the latter because I’m determined to get them to grow somewhere.
3. The Award Ceremony.
As for passing the award along to other sunshine-y bloggers, here’s what I’m going to do.
If you are a self-described ray of sunshine [or you’re looking for something to do on your blog], then by all means do this meme. It’s fun. It’s light. It’s a perfect sort of meme that puts all other memes to shame. YES, gentle readers, this is the meme for you.
And with that, I have fulfilled my obligation regarding Rule #3. See you later, meme-a-gators. It’s beautiful outside today– and this little ray of sunshine wants to be out in the garden.
