Sunshine Award!

I'm so thrilled ... I got another blog award!  I've been savouring it for a few days, just enjoying the sweet kindness of Dawna over at Hiccups in Time for granting it to me.

I particularly love that its called the "sunshine award" because who doesn't need a little bit of extra sunshine in their lives?  Living in Canada, I particularly love sunshine because, let's face it, there are many long months of grey stormy skies and wet slushy snow that seem to last way tooooooooooo long.  Sunshine is life to me!

As an aside, I've recently started taking Vitamin D supplements and I really recommend them.  After about a month of taking them, I am feeling a tremendous boost in my energy levels.

This award has given a little boost too - a little boost of encouragement!  So thank-you Dawna for thinking of me and passing along this sweet award.

The rules of acceptance are:

1. Put the logo on your blog.
                 No problem there, I adore gerbera daisies almost as much as I love sunshine!

2.  Pass the award on to 12 bloggers.
                 Hmmmmm .... let me give that some thought.

3.  Let the bloggers know that you have given them an award.
                 Definitely will do that once I narrow the list down to 12.  Really, you people all have such WONDERFUL blogs, how am I supposed to choose?

4.  Share the love by linking back to the person who gave the award.
               Already did that but here she is once again!  Dawna at Hiccups in Time  Thank-you Dawna!

So, now on to choosing the 12 bloggers I'm going to pass this award on to.  I wish I could choose you all, because honestly, I have so enjoyed getting to "know" each one of you, benefiting from your creativity, insightful writing, lovely photography, and growing friendships.  You are all such special people and having a little glimpse into your lives is something I treasure.

However, since I do have to narrow it down to 12, here are 12 of the many special bloggers I enjoy.  Some I've known for a little while (little because I've only been blogging for 2 months) and others I've just recently "met", but all of them are proving to be special!  Hope you enjoy visiting their lovely blogs.


  1. Hi,thankyou soooo much for the 'sunshine' award. This is my second blog award in a just a few weeks of each other.
    I am so pleased people get pleasure from reading my little blog! x

  2. Congratulations on your award!

  3. Congratulations on the Sunshine Award Ro, you deserve it. This is a sun shining blog if there ever was one! The heads up on using the Vitamin D supplement is a good example of your wanting to spread the sunshine. That's good to know.


  4. Your blog definitely deserved some sunshine. Congratulations! And thank you for thinking of me!!!!

  5. Thank you for your input about the problems I was having with my toolbar this morning. It must have been some Blogger glitch, as it appears that everything is fine now. The toolbar is back up...and I didn't do anything to accomplish that...except wait a couple hours.

    Congratulations on your award. I agree with you on the sunshine thing. Our family made a geographical move a few years that we hate. We left Florida, where it's always warm, sunny, and green, and we now live where we experience winter....we hate the cold and the long, gray winters and are hoping to move back.

    LOVE LOVE LOVE Sunshine.

    Blessings on your day,

  6. Hello Ro happy sunshine award to you, and thank you for spreading a little sunshine joy my way.

    Thank you so for thinking of me but due to time restrictions I had to make my blog award free but I do appreciate the thought!

    Take care,

  10. Hi Ro,
    Congratulations on your award! So exciting and you deserve it with your thoughtful and interesting blog. I want to thank you for thinking of me and I am very appreciative; so very sweet of you! But because of time issues, I no longer accept awards or tags. I would ask that you pass mine on to someone else. Hope you are having a wonderful day.


  11. Congratulations to you on your Award, Ro! And thank you so much for thinking of me - I appreciate you!
