A Sunshine Award!

My lovely friend, Mae Clair, nominated me for the Sunshine Award!  This is a fun award that bloggers give to other bloggers "who positively and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere."  So, thank you, Mae, for including me!  What an honour!

Mae Clair wrote a great time travel werewolf romance called Weathering Rock.  Now, I'm eagerly awaiting the release of her next book, Twelfth Sun, which is coming out in August. She has also has a regular blog post "Mythical Monday," where I always learn something new!

The rules of the Sunshine Award are as follows:
  1. Thank the person who gave you the award in your blog post - Thank you, Mae!
  2. Answer the questions below
  3. Pass the award to a bunch of deserving and inspiring bloggers, inform them and link to their blogs (The rules actually say 10-12 people, but I chose 6)
So, here are the questions:

Favorite Color: I like primary colors... so I guess I'll choose three!  Blue and red for clothing and yellow for my walls! 

Favorite Animal: Cats.  I live with two.  That said, I would also like a dog, but so far that idea keeps getting nixed by my "other half."

Favorite Number: 4

Favorite Non-Alcoholic Drink: Club Soda with Lime.

Facebook or Twitter: Facebook for mostly close friends and family interactions, and Twitter for fun and learning.

Your Passion: Writing! 

Giving or Getting Presents: Giving!  Absolutely.  I love trying to find something the person will enjoy.  And, I hate surprises, which might explain why I also like to read the ends of books before I finish them.  That is the only thing that bugs me about eReaders - how difficult it is to read the end before you get to it.

Favorite Flower: The flowers on the Mayday tree, which is a type of cherry tree.  It is the first happy sign of spring for me. 

And now, I'd like to pass this award on to:

Thank you for the sunshine on your blogs!

Right now we have one cat and someday soon we'll have a dog. My hubs just says soon. So, I'm not much farther on that one than you are, lol. Spring flowers are the best. I know the Mayday tree, so pretty. Thanks for including me. I can't wait to share a bit about you on my blog :)

Thanks for the lovely words about my blog and books, Lorraine.That was so very sweet of you! I loved seeing your Sunshine Award today.

I am a "cat person" too but also love dogs. When I read print books, I used to read the closing lines of the book first. You're right, it's definitely harder on an eReader! Fortunately, I broke myself of the habit when I started reading mysteries (even in print). Hope you had fun with the Sunshine Award!
