The Sunshine Award

Bccmee nominated me for a Sunshine Award :) It was quite a while back - sorry it has taken me so long to publish and say THANK YOU, bccmee!

One of the requirements for the award is to answer these ten questions, so here goes:

What is a favorite childhood memory? I remember one lovely spring afternoon, lying on a lush, grassy hillside with a few friends just watching the clouds float by, imagining them to be bunnies, castles, and ships. It was an idyllic few hours.

What is a real fear you have? I sometimes fear my children will come to harm and I will not be able to do anything to prevent it.

How would you describe yourself? I'm an introvert and a day-dreamer, but I'm also practical. I don't like it when things don't make sense.

What countries have you lived in? I've only ever lived in the USA, though I've lived in six different states.

What is your style? This question is too general, LOL. For clothing I like things that fit me well and aren't too busy. As for home decorating, a magazine would probably label my style country-eclectic, if they were being nice. It's quite the mix and looks very lived-in. There are books in every room.

What is your favorite breakfast food? It changes with the seasons, but I'm very fond of boxed cereals at all times of day. In cold weather I enjoy steel cut oats.

What are some of your hobbies? I'm game for anything from watercolor painting to origami. I enjoy knitting and crochet, sewing, reading, gardening, arts and crafts. I also love to play my ukulele and sing, though I'm pretty dismal. I used to like to act, but I was only in a few shows and haven't been on a stage for (gasp) 20 yrs now.

If you could tell people anything, what would be the most important thing to say? Use your brains, people. Don't blindly take whatever lines are being handed to you; search for truth.

What is one of your passions? I really like the writings of G.K. Chesterton. I'm even in the American Chesterton Society.

What is the one truth you have learned? Most people are good at heart. Don't be afraid to trust. If you trust someone and they abuse that trust, well, it says more about what kind of a person they are than what kind of a person you are. Of course, see above and use your head.

Now, I would be remiss if I didn't nominate my Richard Armitage Watch partner in crime Fanny,  and Heidi who helped get the ball rolling! These gals have brought a little more sunshine into my world than was there BRA (heehee - Before Richard Armitage).
