On January 2, 2013, our colleague Jay Morris, The Wayward Journey, made my world a brighter place by nominating me for a Sunshine Award.  I was delighted.

As Jay wrote, some people do not accept awards.  In my opinion, one should have a choice in the matter.  If you do not accept awards, please look upon my nominating you as a personal tribute to excellent blogs.  I should think, you can also tell you have been nominated.  In fact, if you know how to do this, I believe you may put the nomination in your sidebar.  This is a process I have yet to master.  I’ve tried, but made a mess.

There are rules.

First, you must link back to me. You may do this by writing a comment when you receive this post.

Second, You must reveal seven facts about yourself.

Third, You must nominate ten other blogs.

This is what I said about myself:

  1. I am respectful of others, whatever their ethnicity, rich or poor, etc.
  2. I had a very loving and generous husband.
  3. Nature gave me an insightful mind and good looks.
  4. Music, the fine arts, books and cats have brought me great pleasure.
  5. I enjoy a “café society.”
  6. I prefer the indoors, but let the outdoors in and the indoors out.
  7. My favourite outing is joining dear friends for a dinner, or just coffee, and good conversation.

My nominees are:

I have been nominated for another award, which means there will be other nominees. I love you all.
