Sunny Sunday!

This past week, I had another wonderful surprise, thanks to Wanda of Beauty and the Green!  Her creativity and amazing ideas shared on her blog are truly inspiring so I hope you can find the time to check out her site too!  It’s because of those same qualities that I can understand how she received the Sunshine Blog Award and I am truly honored that she thought of sharing the same award with me!  To be thought of as inspiring and be likened to sunshine on the blogosphere are compliments I take seriously.  I guess being named ‘Joy’ creates some pressure eh? 

So, here are the rules for accepting this award:
1. Thank the person who gave this award and write a post about it.

2. Answer the following questions below.

3. And pass the award to 10~12 fabulous bloggers, link their blogs and let them know you awarded them. 

Here are the questions and my answers ---

Favorite color?  It hasn’t always been this way but at least for the past 5 or 6 years, it’s been sage green.
Favorite animal?  I hope I don’t get crucified for saying this but I’m not really an animal lover.  But if I absolutely had to answer this question, I would have to go with the owl.  I have always been fascinated by them and it doesn’t help that they are elusive creatures.  Dang!  
Favorite number? 10
Favorite drink?  Any kind of drink?...Well, I’d say hot chocolate.  It’s a hug in a mug!
Facebook or Twitter?  Facebook!
Your passion?  Food.  Writing.  Organizing and decorating the home.  I’m sure there are some more undiscovered ones and I will probably spend the rest of my life figuring them out.
Giving or getting presents?  Oooohhh, this is a tough one.  Who doesn’t love getting presents?!  But I must admit giving something and seeing how much it’s appreciated is a feeling like no other!
Favorite day?  At this time that I’m not working outside the home, I would have to choose Tuesday.  It’s when the crazy weekend social events are over and most of the household chores are either done or scheduled for a different day and I’m left to concentrate on my writing or to find inspiration for future material.   
Favorite flowers?  Gerber daisies.  They look friendly, happy and I love how intense their colors are. 

And now to share the love and spread the sunshine!  I’m choosing to pass the award to the following blogs because they inspire me with their positive messages, their creativity, honesty and/or humor!  In other words, they definitely put a dash of added sunshine to my online world!  I wish I could nominate a lot more but for now, I’ll stick to the rules and present you with this list.  Congratulations to all you inspiring thinkers & bloggers!
