First Times

No not that first time.

A sister blogger nominated me for an award.  It’s the first time.

Thank you, Laurel.  I love your blog:  Alphabet Salad.  For one thing, we are roughly, roughly in the same demographics, for another thing, we both blog about a bunch of stuff.  Our minds are like honeybees: at first glance, there’s a randomness about us, but underneath it all, we are busy, busy with purpose.

So today, I’m busy, busy, responding to Laurel’s questions and nominating a few favorite bloggers of my own.

The Rules:

  • Provide a link to and thank the blogger who nominated you for this award.
  • Answer ten questions.
  • Nominate 10-12 blogs that you find a joy to read.
  • Provide links to these nominated blogs and kindly let the recipients know they have been nominated.
  • Include the award logo within your blog post.


  1. Your favourite colour: I love color, I can hardly pick:  If I must:  summer-sunset-red, no morning-glory-blue, no semi-sweet-chocolate-brown.  Okay, summer-sunset-red, that came to me first.
  2. Your favourite animal: Macaws, but only in the wild.  Captured macaws make me sad.  They mate for life, they raise one chick at a time for 18 years.  Macaws live for about 80 years.  Plus, all that color!
  3. Your favourite non-alcoholic drink:Tea (brewed hot or iced)
  4. Facebook or Twitter? Facebook
  5. Your favourite pattern: Uneven plaid
  6. Do you prefer getting or giving presents? Giving anonymously
  7. Your favourite number: Irrational (Pi anyone)
  8. Your favourite day of the week: Monday is filled with such potential
  9. Your favourite flower: Wild flowers, especially the thistle (but not in my backyard, those things are impossible to contain. Hmmm…)
  10. What is your passion? Family
