Sunshine Award

Thanks to Rhetta from On Raspberry Hill, I've received the Sunshine Award!! Thanks, Rhetta!


1) Favorite color?
Sea Blue. I feel in love with it all over again in Hawaii. That inky blue is just amazing.
2) Favorite animal? 
Probably the river otter. They are just so cute and playful. Love to see them when we go to aquariums.
3) Favorite number?
7, it's a nice number, full of perfection. Followed closely by 40 and 12.
4) Favorite Drink?
A nice, hot cafe mocha from just about any coffee shop, with the cold version running a close second
5) Facebook or Twitter?
I like them both for different reasons. I feel like I get more news on Twitter and more drama on Facebook.
6) Good Book or Good Movie?
I love reading a good book and then seeing a well made movie about it. It doesn't happen very often, if ever, but I still love that.
7) My passion?
Learning. I love learning new things. I especially like studying the Bible and seeing what God has to teach me. 
8) Giving or getting gifts? 
I actually love getting more than giving, but I do enjoy giving gifts, especially when it's a good one.
9) Favorite day?
Thursday, it's the last day of Joel's work week, I enjoy being home together in the evening, knowing we have Sabbath the next day.
10) Favorite flower?
Sunflowers and daisies. Sunflowers remind me of our wedding day.

Now the rules for the Sunshine Award are:
1) Thank the person who took time out to give you the award - and link back to them.
2) Answer the 10 questions about yourself.
3) Forward this award on to 10 other bloggers - and let them know you have done so! 
4) Copy and paste the award onto your site. 

I will admit, I haven't been on top of reading blogs lately, but I do think of these ladies when I do!

Our Daily Question from Ink & Willow

Did you ever have a book that you love so much because it's just right? That's Our Daily Question for me. It's a three-year journal to share with your significant other. How does that work? Well, each calendar date has a question and divided space to record your answer three times.  There is a great mix of fun, serious, thought-provoking, and heartfelt questions. Generally, the only ones that we've skipped over have been the ones that talk about all the time. It's been nice to be able to pick it up with morning coffee and have a conversation ready to go. Some we've even used at the dinner table to have family discussions.  It's a wonderful little keepsake, one that will have much more value when you finish with it than when you start. If you're looking for a special gift to give a newly married couple, yourself, or even a pair of love birds that have been married for over 20 years, this is a great choice.  I received a copy of this book from Ink & W

Hospitality for the Rest of Us: Long Distance

People are moving more and more. When I was a youngster, it was a rare instance for a friend to move away. Now it's me that moves away. We've moved a lot, especially when we first got married. It was something like five addresses and three states in the first four years of our marriage. We've slowed down a bit. In the midst of all that moving, we've made some friends along the way. I try to keep an open line in case of times of grief and celebration. One of the best tools I've found for keeping in touch with loved ones far away is Facebook. As much time as I could spend doing other things instead of checking it, it's the best thing I've found. It allows me to communicate with others, without having to call. I know calling is amazing, hearing people's voices, but for introverts, there are no body language clues for us to pick up on that help make our conversations easier. It's also why we prefer to video chat :-) Back to Facebook, some etiquette.

Stories from the Kitchen: Taste and See

I celebrated my birthday last weekend. It was wonderful and the leftovers left me with a question or two. Find out what they are and how I'm currently answering them in this week's podcast.
