An Award? Me? Why Me? It's Because Of Sunshine

Well, I don't really do the awards thingy anymore 
I promised Jann  
that I would.
One of the reasons I decided to do it
is because.... well...
because Jann is SO nice..
and also because it is the 

My old neighbors, Toddy & Carl, always
called me 
(along with various other names when
they were "in the cups" if you know
what I mean)

So -Here it is-
my answers for
The Sunshine Award

1.  Favorite color:  Green & (since I have had granddaughters-Pink)
2.  Favorite number:  8   (using my birthday all those numbers add up to 8)
3.  Favorite animal: Human or otherwise?   Hmmm...I love kitties and miss my own.
4.  Favorite non alcoholic drink: Are you kidding me?  Starbucks sugar-free vanilla latte
5.  Facebook or Twitter:  Neither- I am old school.  If you want to know something- CALL me!
6.  What is my passion:  Being a Nana to my grands, gardening, sewing, BLOGGING..
7.  Favorite day of the week: Monday- I know- crazy, huh?  It's kind of like I get a do-over!
8.  Favorite Pattern:  Simplicity....hahahaha-I know what you want... Florals-I love florals.
9.  Receiving or Giving: Giving- I am a great giver but a poor receiver. I always feel guilty
10:  Favorite Flower:  Lilacs in the Spring followed by roses and peonies...oh-and I
love those sweet little violets.

That's it- That's all she wrote- or all I wrote~

Now, here's the deal...
if any of you newer bloggers would like to do 
this simply copy and paste the questions to 
your own blog and put in your own answers...
unless, of course, you want to use my answers...bwhahahaha
If you take the award
and do your own list, let me know
 and I will do a link
to your post.  

Have a great day everyone and spread
to those around you! 
Got it?  Okay- Start NOW!

And...if you promise not to sneak down
to the kitchen at night and eat the last
brownie in the pan and swear it
was gone BEFORE you went to bed
 well...THEN...I will
show you something special
in kinda in the playhouse-
your photo name

I don't facebook either. But I had to open a twitter so I could Pinterest. Haven't tweeted once though.

Michele Smith said...

My mom used to call me sunshine!
I don't do facebook or twitter either. The closest to social networking I do is blogging!

Gretchen said...

I'm really frightened for you because we have some many things about us that are the same. I do facebook but I only check it to see what my kids and grandkids are doing. I still don't get Twitter.

Tete said...

The guys used to call me Sunshine, too, but it wasn't meant to be nice...
So, brownies come up again...I think there might be some undertone there.
Up early this morning and need to go do something with my hair and dig out some long sleeves. 55 here this morning and its nippy. If those guys hurry, they might get the roof on before the rain comes in at noon.

Patty Patterson said...

I have facebook. I haven't figured twitter out. I would probably get my feathers a little ruffled if I tried to tweet!
But - your answers told me a lot. My fav. color changed to pink after grand daughters, too. And my favorite number is 8 for the same reason. I could never decide on a favorite flower though. I wan a few of all of them!

Nellie said...

It's good to learn more about you, Diana. I'm a bit nervous about the cut and paste, though. Strange things always happen when I try this.:-)
No Facebook or Twitter here, either.
I consider you a ray of sunshine that shines on everybody each day!

I am glad you did the Q & A thing. I kind of miss those from long ago blogging. It was fun to find out weird stuff about how I drive barefoot. :) Anyway....loved your pot post and YOU are not anywhere near going to pot! (I ordered some of that chicken serum that keeps you young forever face cream I saw you mention on some blog post some time ago) And your playhouse is soo soo cute. Did you know my chicken house is a former play house? Future post! And I love your potting bench. I just found one at a yard sale last weekend to go next to my potting shed and am so excited. Another future post! Diana, hope you have a fabulous dream filled weekend. Always enjoy your cute posts. xo

Sandra said...

I tried facebook and am over it. I don't like the environment at all, and I've never used Twitter.

Been blogging since 2006 and wouldn't have it any other way :)

Feel free to come by my blog and say hi anytime :)

Sue (Someones Mom) said...

It is always fun to learn more about blog friends...although I don't really do the award things anymore either. There is only so much time and I always seem behind in blogland anyway! I can certainly see why you got a Sunshine Award!

It seems as if no one calls is all about texting, facebooking and tweeting!

Little Miss Maggie said...
