~ Sunshine Award ~

I am so honored to be the recipient of The Sunshine Award by Anita at Aunt Nubby's Kitchen.  If you haven't visited Anita's blog, it's a must!  Besides being such a sweet person, she is a fantastic cook and an organizing fool. ;-)  I wish she would come to my house. 

The Sunshine Award is given by bloggers to bloggers.
The recipients of the Sunshine Award are:
"Bloggers who positively and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere."
The way the award works is this:
1. Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them.
2. Answer 10 questions about yourself.
3. Select 10 of your favorite bloggers, link their blogs to your post and let them know they've been awarded the Sunshine Award!
4. Don't forget to copy and paste the award on your blog!

Not sure about your interest in learning about me but here goes!  :-)

1. Yes, I'm sick of the heat!  I should not say anything as it isn't as bad as last year...yet. Last year we had 73 days of triple digits.

2. Today is my gorgeous granddaughter's birthday ~ 15!  Where has the time gone?  She asked for a Red Velvet Cake so that's what I did yesterday.

3. I haven't had a Pepsi in weeks!  Trying so hard to just drink water and iced tea...unsweetened. Of course, everyone in the south seems to love sweet tea.

4. I'm transcribing a friend's memoirs. We went to school together from the 4th grade on and I can relate to so many of the stories. It's such fun to remember our days in high school especially. 

5. I've been thinking of writing mine and now I know I will. I think it's a treasure to leave for your kids.

6. I'm a member of a internet prayer group and 2 of the members and I have elected to share prayer time daily...2p.m. my time. One is in England and the other on the west coast. Really a meaningful experience!

7. I am you know. :-)  I take a lot of showers in hot weather and I cannot stand for my feet to get dirty. After being outside, I always wash my feet and especially before going to bed.

8. I love watermelon! I've been having it for breakfast and as a late afternoon snack.

9. I have an "addiction" for candles and lamps.

10. Haven't been blogging much lately as I've been so depressed about my friends' passing. I'm really working on changing this.

11. An extra!  Another sweet friend gave me an award and I will share that soon.

The 10 blogs that I am awarding the Sunshine Award to in no particular order are:

Diana at Nanadiana Takes A Break
Barbara at Two Birdies & A Bee
Ginger at Small Town, USA
Lisa at Simply....This, That and the Other
Lisa at The Enchanted Oven
Teresa at Our Southern "Country" Home & Farm
Ann at On Sutton Place
Helen at Miz Helen's Country Cottage
Maggie at Just Between Me and You
Suzan at Simply Vintageous

There are many, many more in blog land that bring sunshine to my world and you know who you are!  :-) I know many blogs are award free and that's ok!  


  1. thanks so much Pat for thinking of me -
    hope good memories are starting to take the place of grief just a little teensy bit!!!
    I've received this award twice before already, just haven't posted it yet -
    Guess I should do so this week!
    Hugs and warm wishes -

  2. Thanks, Pat! I actually received one a while ago and have since become "award and tag free". But thanks so much for thinking of me. I have been laying low, trying to stay cool. I really need to do a post soon, it is over a week already. xo

  3. Pat, you are so deserving of the Sunshine Award! I'm so sorry that so much sad has been going on in your life, but I know you continually look for the good too. I think writing your memoirs would be a huge undertaking, but so wonderful for your family, something we all should consider doing. Try to stay cool!!

  4. I loved reading about you. Fun facts!!!
    How very sweet of you to list our family blog amongst your favorites.
    I am so sorry you have been down. It takes a long time to deal with death...and everybody deals with it differently. I'll be praying that God gives you a real peace and that He will restore your joy. Sometimes blight breaks are to you, sweet friend and rest in Jesus.

  5. Congratulations on your award Pat! I am honored that you want to pass this lovely award on to me, I will post it on my Blog Award Page. I think of you often and glad to see you out and about again. Hope you are doing well today and thank you so much for your kindness.
    Miz Helen

  6. Thanks so much, Pat. I will post the award from you on my sidebar, too. You are just such a sweet gal and I loved reading all the things about you....and...ummmm...I have a lamp addiction, too- xo Diana

  7. I love reading about you, Pat! I know what you mean though, I honestly don't know why anyone would want to know anything about me. So sorry to hear about your friend. You will be in my thoughts and prayers. Take care! xoxo

  8. Hi Pat,
    Congtats on your award!
    I love watermelon, too. I'd eat it everyday if I could get my hands on a good one. I think writing your memoir is a wonderful idea- everyone should!
    Hope things are getting better for you.
    xo, Tina

  9. How fun and sweet Pat! That is funny about your feet. Now I am going to start washing mine before bed HA...I am weird too!

  10. congrats on your award hope your having a fabulous week


It makes my Heart happy to hear from you! Thank you so much for taking the time to say hello. I want to respond to each comment, however, if you are a "no reply blogger" I can't. Would love to have an email address to contact you!
