There are so many wonderful people out there in the blogging community, and it is my pleasure to accept these special awards from two fellow bloggers.

First, the Sunshine Award, for “bloggers who positively and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere”.


This was awarded to me by Calvin at  In accepting this award, it is requested that I answer a few (10 to be exact 😉 questions.  Since the whirlwind of holiday planning has me in its grips right now, I’ll answer just a few and ask that you accept my apologies for not getting to each and every one.

1)  My favorite non-alcoholic drink:  Yoo-hoo.  (no kidding)

2)  What is your favorite physical activity:  Baking cookies.  I really thought about this one.  Reaching into the cupboard for ingredients, cracking eggs, bending to check the oven…it adds up.

3)  What is your favorite flower:  The rose.  It comes in so many beautiful colors, each having its own meaning, and there is no mistaking that glorious fragrance.

The next award, The Liebster Award (“Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome. darling/sweetheart award”):


This award was given to me by Johanna at  There are 11 questions here that I hope to answer soon, at a time when life is not so chaotic.  I am compiling my group of well-deserving bloggers to share these with.

Warmest thanks to you both, Calvin and Johanna, for including me in your lists of recipients, and for bringing a smile to my heart.
