Sunshine Blogger award

Oh my goodness, I’ve been nominated for another award. I can’t believe it. It makes me so happy just to get visits and likes now and then but then an award shows up too…so sweet. Thank you Popsicle society, for nominating me. Please, if you haven’t checked out her site yet, then head on over for a visit. She is another kind soul out here in blogosphere passing on her inspirations, creativity, and bonus points…she travels. Loved reading about your visit to Hong Kong. Okay, if you follow me, you know my pattern…have to break some rules with this award. I am pressed on time. I have some other posts to work on if I want to keep my goal of a post once a day for the month of December. I tend to get carried away with my post sometimes and add a little too much so they can get long. I have cookies to bake for a cookie exchange coming up, presents to make, wrap and still buy. Oh and I can’t forget the laundry, cleaning the house, the animals (that includes the chickens and garden) and an endless supply of unfinished projects from the year. Don’t you just love this time of year. Okay, now on to the award.

 

The Sunshine Blogging award is an award for bloggers who are creative, positive, and inspiring-people who spread “sunshine” to the blogging world.

 

The rules-

 

  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you.
  2. Use the “Sunshine Blogger Award” logo on your post and list the rules.
  3. Answer the 11 questions the selector asks of you
  4. Nominate 5-11 bloggers that you want to give the award to.
  5. Ask the following bloggers that you selected 11 questions of your own.

 

Okay I am breaking rule number 5, remember I am pressed for time. I also tend to get carried away when I am sitting here at the keyboard. I need an editor desperately. I could probable cut out half the stuff I write.

 

Here are my answers to the 11 questions from Popsicle society. I am not writing the questions down so please visit Popsicle’s site for the questions.

 

  1. No
  2. My family and spending time with them.
  3. I try, but there are some crazy things going on out in our world and I believe we all can feel that. Families are falling apart, there is an opioid epidemic in our area and country as well. And don’t even get me on the subject of politics…it’s a mess out there. All I can do is try to put out some positive and hopefully it will be a chain reaction and others will join in.
  4. Yes, I love traveling and miss it terrible.
  5. A couple of weeks ago. I get flowers all the time for my garden, it’s my peace place and I have tons of plants I have planted in memory of love ones our family has lost over the years.
  6. My kids and the world we are leaving for them. We all really need to try harder to make our world a more loving, healthy and friendlier place.
  7. It’s very hard keeping up with the blog. I try to visit all the bloggers I follow but the more I keep adding the harder it is. Plus there are some I forget now and then and unless it comes up that they have a new post the moment I get on, it is impossible to know. I have to go search then out to see what’s new. Wish I had more time. Everyone is so great here and always seem so positive.
  8. Dying, I don’t think I would like being a cyborg. Also I believe in God, so I don’t fear death, when its my time that is. Still feel I have some unfinished business on this planet.
  9. Yes, and it has gotten me into a lot of trouble growing up. I will always want to see what’s  around those corners and behind closed doors. I think it’s why I love documentaries so much.
  10. Salsa and corn tortilla chips with rice and beans.I grew up on that stuff.
  11. No, but I bet it would be a fun adventure though.

 

I am nominating all the bloggers that I have enjoyed reading these past few days and it is all about Christmas and the holidays. If I did a favorite posts this month, which by the way I haven’t done in awhile, well I would pick these bloggers for that as well. Please check out their sites. There are yummy recipes, great DIY’s to decorate your home for Christmas, and what they are up to this season. These are some of my favorite people to follow but if you aren’t on here please don’t think I don’t think of all you too. This is about Christmas for me so I am sticking to that for this award…breaking another rule. Anyway, here they are and to all the bloggers I am nominating there is no pressure to participate, know how hectic it is this time of year. To any of my followers who would like to participate consider this an invite to the award.

    1. THank you for putting together such a great blog. MY daughter just reposted the sunshine award post again because there were typos everywhere. She laughed so hard when she read my answers and asked why I didn’t type up the questions. She thought that was so hilarious. We both started laughing so hard. I told her I hope it doesn’t come off as being rude, I really was in the middle of things and thought I post something as quick as possible. Love your site , thanks again for taking the time to do that.

    So sweet of you. I have only a handful of sites i follow, my goal in the new year is to explore more blogs here on wordpress now that I kind of have the hang of things. I will skip out on the reposting and nomimating but thank you and thank you for the other blog links i am going to go visit them all now.
    Also i did pop open popsicle societys questions for your answers. Family would be my happiness too. I am to a curious person always want to “learn and research” and I too cant say I keep up with blogging but its my new years rez this year.

    1. There is just so much we can accomplish in a day, so I understand being an awards free site. It is hard keeping up with blogging. Starting in January I will have to go back to a once a week post. Thought I try the Blogmas thing this year.

    1. Figures, it was written pretty quickly. I hope the sites name is at least on it so you can look them up that way. There are some great bloggers out there and all the ones I picked have fun post just in time to put everyone in the Christmas mood. I don’t have time today to go back and check all the links because today I need to catch up on all my handmade gifts. I am so far behind but I keep things simple, so I should be done after today on most of them.

  10. I received 2 Liebster awards within a two week period. I was very overwhelmed at the time & never responded. Ended up with 2 month total writer’s block & just woke up, broke the wall, whatever. I find myself rude not responding, but I couldn’t. All that to say: good for you to give answers to unknown questions! Wouldn’t it be great if they were yes & no, true or false? Hahaha

    1. I know, it gets overwhelming, I feel the same way too, so I can understand some bloggers being awards free. I try to let anyone who nominates me though that I am so happy they like my site. I also worry about coming off rude. When we can’t have face to face conversation anything can be taken several ways. That’s why eye to eye human contact is so important. We really need more of that. It is hard on social media sometimes because written words can be taken so many ways when we can’t read body language with them. I My daughter though my answers were so funny, especially the first answer of NO. I was very busy that day. We all need our laughs.

  12. Congratulations! well deserved. Sorry for the late comment but it has been so busy lately. I don’t follow many blogs but it seems that all the ones, your included that I do follow have posted every single day that I haven’t been on hahaha. I have had time to post the verses, and even turned the comments off because I wasn’t able to moderate them for days, sometimes a week later. I come back and see everyone has posted something good almost every day. Such is life. I will catch up with your blog eventually. One post at a time, right 🙂 🙂 Congratulations again my friend. You have a wonderful blog, and you deserve all the awards there are 🙂 I pray you and your family are abundantly blessed this year. 🙂

    1. It is better knowing that you were out enjoying and celebrating the season instead of reading all day. It is hard keeping up with blogging and visiting everyone but I tried. A bunch of my posts this month were written in the summer and Fall and pre-scheduled. Otherwise I too wouldn’t have been able to keep up with blogmas. I was out in the world celebrating the season with family and friends too. I would try to pop in every now and them to visit you all though because I do like to see what everyone is up to and what a gift that you post. You have taught me a lot over the years and your bible posts have gotten me through alot this year. Thank you for doing that. God bless you and your family.
