Sunshine Award: Round Two

<<<<<  Of course this is me -- in my dreams! Anyway, that crazy Bob the Water Cat has once again tossed the Sunshine Award my way. Muchas gracias, mi amigo. Or  Vielen Dank, mein Freund, as it were. 

And this Sunshine Award goes to: Bob the Water Cat! He practically challenged me in his post thanking me for the award I had already given him, so he was re-awarding one to me, so now I HAVE to re-re-award him. And I quote: (In the hopes that she will give this award to me again there by creating a loop in time which we will get stuck in, so I'll like get lots more of these awards.) See? But seriously, folks, he has about a bazillion Twitter followers (all hookers) and you know you want to follow Bob too (he practically begs, so for the love of all that's chocolate, please follow him on Twitter. And, no, this does not mean you're a hooker). @bobthewatercat. DO IT.

To properly receive this award, the recipient must (if you notice a similarity between Bob's blog and mine in this area it's because I stole his -- in the spirit of honesty, duh! But it's cute too -- I like the little check mark thingies):
  1. Include the award in your post or blog  
  2. Answer 10 questions about yourself. 
  3. Nominate 10 other bloggers for this award. 
  4. Link to the nominees and comment on their blog to let them know they are nominated. 
  5. Link to the person who nominated you. 
  1. Favorite Color: Bluish green azureish -- like the Caribbean.
  2. Favorite Number: 3.14 -- I love pie!
  3. Favorite Animal: Seals. I saw them when I was on the Monterrey Peninsula many moons ago.
  4. Favorite non-alcoholic drink: Root beer floats with ice on the side of the glass are awesome!
  5. Facebook or Twitter: No games on Twitter. :(
  6. My Passion: peaceful, productive days
  7. Giving or Receiving Gifts: I have a hard time receiving. But I'd like some practice (hint, hint!)  
  8. Favorite Pattern: fractals (this answer almost makes me sound smart!)
  9. Favorite Day of the Week: whichever one is peaceful and productive...and the ones that lure me out on my bike 
  10. Favorite Flower: Zinnias -- whole beds of them. They'll bloom all summer and are wonderful to cut and bring inside.

Now for some more awesome blogs:
  1. Fellow Texan which makes her cool, and Austinite which makes her super cool.
  2. Hilary is my alter-ego. She is footloose and fancy free -- and I live vicariously through her blog.
  3. This is a wonderful source of peace.
  4. One of the most honest blogs out there. Check it out.
  5. This gal takes some gorgeous pictures! Check out springtime in Texas......and drool! (And she's my friend!)
  6. Lots of wonderful inspiration here, whether you want to be a better man or a better woman!
  7. This is fabulous if you love to travel.
  8. Another traveler I live through. (And we're name twins!)
  9. You MUST check this out. Awesome and uplifting.
  10. Wonderful drawings accompany her writing. Very cool!
Bob, I think it should end here (after yours, of course!). Whaddaya think, buddy? It's truly awesome to be nominated at all....but TWICE? Share the looooove! Woooohooooo!!

P. S. Bob's right about the Monday giveaway! Be sure and stop by!!


  1. Nice wedding photo.

    I agree, Claire. It stops here. You were actually a sport to go for one more. But the thought of creating a time loop in the space time continuum for the sole purpose of receiving more awards was both selfish and irresponsible. Messing with time is a serious matter and should never be used for personal gain. I've learned my lesson.

    With that said: I would like to award you with the Sunshine Award. See my last post for details.)

    1. Bob, you sunshiney little cat.....since you didn't create another post, neither will I. But I can fling this award back to your pond. ;)

  2. Thanks. It's nice to have another link,
    and another award graphic for my collection!
    I have five so far,I feel so important!

  3. OK, first Thank You for the mention and I'll play along.

    Second, I LOVE you new site! It is awesome. I had subscribed to your other and when playing catch up (at least somewhat) on the blogs I follow I noticed yours stopped. Didn't realize it changed. LOVE it! Are you still hosting at Wordpress or on Blogger or something else? (Nevermind, as I went to post this comment, I can tell now who's hosting.)

    Third, YOU ROCK!

    Thanks again for the "award" :) Now I'm off to spread a little sunshine!

  4. Congrats Claire! *ROFLOL*

  5. Thanks. Now I need to check out all those other exciting blogs too. :)


Yes! I've been there, Claire!
