Iรขย€ย™ve had the wonderful honor of being nominated by AllWrite? Facebook Group Owner Debbie Jinks for the oh-so-coveted Sunshine Blogger Award!

I first want to say Thank You to “Have You Ever Noticed Blog” for nominating me for the Sunshine Blogger Award.ย  I am very touched and humbled to be thought of for the following.ย  Please check outย her site at –ย  (https://haveyouevernoticedblog.wordpress.com/)

  • Nominate 5-11 bloggers you want to give the award to.
  • Ask the following bloggers that you selected 11 questions of your own.

Questions:

  1. What is the one dishย you like to cook?ย ย That’s hard to narrow down, but I do love cooking anything Italian.
  2. How would you describe your favorite pair of shoes?ย  The slip-on sneakers that I have in several colors are like wearing slippers.ย  I love them!
  3. What was the best thing you did last week?ย  Meeting up with a group of friends for our personal anxiety group in the park.ย  Beautiful atmosphere, and great conversation to work on our anxieties.
  4. If you could have lunch with one author (living or dead) who would it be and why?ย ย Harlan Coban.ย  He writes mysteries that take place in the state of New Jersey, (Where I reside).ย  His stories are so fast-paced and exciting, I can usually blast through one of his books in a matter of 2 days.ย  I would love to ask him about his inspirations, and how involved he gets with the forensics and police departments within the region.

  3. As promised, here are the answers to the questions you posed:

    1. Are you a morning or evening person, and why do you prefer one of the other? In later years, this has changed for me. I was once a night owl but these days I prefer the early (pre-sunrise mornings) because I love watching the sun pulling itself up out of night’s slumber. I also love the quiet of early mornings.

    2. Do you like cooking in the kitchen or do you prefer Barbequeing? I prefer cooking in the kitchen, though I do like to barbecue from time to time. I am hands on when it comes to food prep and sometimes find it boring to simply flip meat and veggies on the bbq.

    3. If you were to make a meal for dear friends, what would you serve them? My friends love seafood so I would serve an appetizer of crab dip and veggies, a main of fresh mussels, lobster, cod and salmon (with salads) and perhaps a berry topped cheesecake for dessert.

    4.What is your favorite childhood memory? I have so many but my favourites include playing with dinky cars outside and sailing toy boats in the cove.

    5. Who is your favorite band or solo artist, and why? Canadian folk artist, Stan Rogers (who passed away in the 1980s) is my all time favourite artist/singer/songwriter because he wrote about common folk doing common things. He also had a great voice and his songs are great poetry.

    6. What is your favorite activity/hobby you enjoy doing that relaxes you? Playing an instrument is at the top of this list but I also enjoy reading, writing and watching my favorite tv shows or movies.

    7. What are you most grateful for? Being born in a large family in a small village where I was raised by wonderful parents who demonstrated how to love one another and how to enjoy life. They also taught us to give of ourselves to those who have less or to those who are suffering. That is something I will always be grateful for.

    8. Do you sing while taking a shower? If so, what do you usually sing? All the time. whatever is in my head at the moment!

    9. When you were in school, what was your favorite subject and why? It’s a tie between Social Studies and English Lit. I love to read and learn things about the past, including the impact the movements of peoples have had on our world. I also love how literature can also teach us about people, places and times.

    10. If you had the choice to go anywhere in the world, where would you go and why? I would go to France to try and find that part of my family’s lineage.

    11. If you could meet any actor/actress, who would it be, and what would you want to ask them? Meg Ryan from the late 80s and early 90s and I would ask her if she’d like to have coffee ๐Ÿ™‚
