Thankful Thursday: Awards


From Bethany and Clar
From Clar
I want to thank Bethany Telles at Perched in a Tree and Clar at Clarbojahn's Blog for giving me a couple of awards this week.

Most of you know these ladies. Bethany was a finalist in the MeeGenius Author Challenge with her fun story Waiting for James in a Sea of Pink. Bethany has changed up her blog a bit in recent weeks with her I Ponder ... Wednesdays. Recent posts have included Would you write better without social media?,  Can you write, bravely? and Are your characters about YOU?

Clar has been busy getting her Annie's Special Day published. She's been sharing her  journey along with posts like Your given Name vs Your Pen Name, My BLOGAVERSARY. Why I Started Blogging and Why I keep On and Brand Yourself.

I haven't answered questions for a blog award in awhile, so I thought I would share my answers to the Sunshine Award.

  1. Favorite Color: Black. It seems easy at first, but there are different shades (including faded). It really attracts other colors, er, lint and dog hair. 
  2. Favorite Animal: Zebra. I love them.
  3. Favorite Number: 3. I wish I had thought up the 1+1=3! Brilliant. 
  4. Favorite Drink: Water. I randomly will drink a Sprite. No tea or Coca Cola for this Georgia girl. 
  5. Facebook or Twitter: Twitter. I love the instant, brief communication. I've spent more time recently on Facebook, but I like Twitter best.
  6. Passion: Story telling — fiction and non-fiction. 
  7. Giving or receiving presents: Giving. I seriously do not need anything. I like to surprise people with a unique or fun gift. 
  8. Favorite Day: I'm with Clar on this one — Saturday. It's a day by itself. Friday ends the week and Sunday begins the week for me. Saturday is a fun day. 
  9. Favorite Flower: Any flower in bloom on cactus. I used to live near a Texas visitor center with a cactus garden. Cactus flowers often end up on my personal notecards when I get crafty. 

Technically, I'm supposed to pass it around to others, but I think everyone under the sun has received these awards. If you haven't, well grab one. It's been one of those weeks (not in a bad way). Enjoy the sun and please visit Bethany and Clar, if you haven't this week.

How's the weather in your corner of the world this week? I'm feeling a bit of spring in Colorado.

  1. Congratulations on your blog awards, Stacy!

    I can't believe you live in Georgia and don't like sweet tea. I thought it was a staple in the South. I learned about sweet tea from my mom, who was raised in Texas. Her sweet tea was so sweet it was like drinking syrup. I don't make mine quite that sweet. =)

    It is getting a bit spring-like here, thank goodness. Hitting the 60s most days over the last week. Yeah!

    1. Karen, We've had spring too. A neighbor mentioned snow next week. I don't dare look at the forecast. Of course, last year we had snow on Easter Sunday.

  5. Congrats it is well-deserved and they are so pretty too. I like your choice of flower, the cactus flowers are so pretty, and the cactus always reminds me of a funny cactus story. Enjoy your week!

  8. Congrats on your awards Stacy! You're the first one I know to like Twitter over Facebook. You know, I never had a two way conversation on twitter. Still figuring things out.

    1. Jennifer, With the notification buttons now, it's easy to see if someone mentions you and easy to respond. Like I said I've been on FB more recently, but I heart Twitter.

    1. Pat, My mother got on Facebook before me. I fell in love with Twitter. I always joke that FB saved me $1000, because I caught up with old high school friends there and didn't attend my 20-year reunion.

    1. Jennifer - I think we could begin a Saturday club. Oh wait, we don't want to ruin Saturdays with organization. Never mind. :)

  16. Congratulations, Stacy! Enjoyed reading your answers. Water and black...doesn't quite match up to your bright personality. But love the originality of cactus flowers and zebra. Don't hear that too often.

    1. Romelle, As a Georgia native, I never understood cactus until I lived in Texas. I probably still don't, but I love them in bloom.

  18. Congrats! First day of Spring here in Vancouver and it's decidedly winter-like with near record snowfall on the local mountains. I'm enjoying my tulips and daffodils indoors - in vases!
