Last week—all the way from Melbourne, Australia—my WANA friend Ellen Gregory gave me a Sunshine Award.
- Include the award’s logo in a post on your blog.
- Link to the person who nominated you.
- Answer the 10 questions below.
- Pass the award on to a bunch of “Sunshine inspiring” bloggers. The rules say 10 people, but choose however many you like.
And here are the questions: (note: We are talking about Favourites, and that will be Favorites to some of you. See my post on being bilingual.)
Pink, because it’s a bright, alive, happy colour. I love my pink ski jacket and I do some of my best writing when I’m wearing pink socks.
That would be Makita, a Labradoodle, a cross between a Labrador Retriever and a Standard Poodle.
13, because there are 13 letters in my name.
Ellen likes a large skinny flat white – which I just discovered is slightly different from a latte. It has a higher ratio of coffee to milk and is more “velvety” in consistency.
My favourite is a grande decaf latte, sometimes skinny, sometimes not. And sometimes I go all out and have a grande caramel Frappuccino.
Currently, a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc called Saint Clair, Family Estate, Pioneer Block 18.
We had this for Mother’s Day when we were at Notable’s.
Writing, of course.
Definitely giving. Sometimes I even give myself presents. That way I always get what I want 🙂
Calgary, Alberta, Canada
Even with the short summers, the Chinooks, and the hail in July, it is still a beautiful city. And I love that it’s close to Banff National Park.
At the moment, Elementary.
And those are my 10 answers. Thank you, Ellen!
You can find Ellen at her blog, to beyond and back.
Here are my nominations for the Sunshine Award:
Want to share your own answers here?
Wow, Suzanne, thanks! Loved reading your answers – Elementary is way up there for me too. Now I have to put my thinking cap on.
Yay Jennifer! Another Elementary fan. I love a good mystery.
Did you both catch the last episode of Elementary? Awesome!!!!!I’ve just finished 3535 words for my current WIP so now I’ll get to work trying to post the sunshine award on my website…. 😉
Calgary is my favorite city, too, Suzanne. Years ago, I tried to talk my DH into moving there so we could be close to the mountains, but at least I have 2 sisters in Calgary and CaRWA as an excuse to come down. 🙂
Thank you for the Sunshine award, you’re so sweet!
Brenda – WTG on the word count. You’ll have another book out in no time!
Sheila – I used to live in Your city, years ago, for a short time. It’s also very pretty, but I do like being so close to the mountains.
Very clever answer to giving or getting presents. Love it. I also enjoy a tasty Sauvignon Blanc. It’s my go-to summer wine. 🙂
Love your answers Suzanne, and thank you for the nomination. Yes Sauvignon Blanc has long been a favourite of mine as well.
Great answers, Suzanne! I love your labradoodle. I reckon most poodle crosses are awesome. (I knew the most adorable “cavoodle” once – poodle crossed with a King Charles Cavalier Spaniel!)
I haven’t been to Calgary, but I did love Banff the time I went! The mountains are so beautiful and inspiring.
Margaret & Tami – I’m not a wine connoisseur but I really love the taste of that Sauvignon Blanc. I think I’ll “gift” myself a bottle…
Ellen – I’ve never heard of a Cavoodle. But then I’d never heard of a Labradoodle until Makita. It sounds much like the whole kit and caboodle 🙂
