Sunshine Award – Can you be sunny? Enter to win!

A big thank you to Dana at MomsLifePonderings for nominating me for the Sunshine award!

Hop on over to Dana’s site.  It’s a nice read that I can totally relate to as a mom.

Well, here are the rules for this award.  Pretty standard.  (Actually a few of these I could photocopy and just change the names of the awards, but that’s okay.)

1) Thank the person who gave you this award and link back to them in your post. CHECK

2) Tell us some things about yourself.   SEE BELOW

3) Nominate 10 bloggers.   I’ll Get to that

4) Contact these bloggers and let them know they have received this award.  Ummm… They usually find out before I get to that.

A few things about myself that I haven’t told you already:

1) My oldest fish just died.  Three pounds of black and white spotted butterfly koi wonder.  RIP Oreo.

2) I have to shave my dog.  I can’t get the matts out of her hair.  (Sorry Chloe)

3) My husband just dyed his hair blonde.  Yeah, I don’t get it either.

4) I need to lose ten pounds.  All in my thighs (the writer’s curse)

5) No matter how much I try, I just cannot use Brought or Bought correctly.

So, I guess I have to find some Bloggers that bring some sunshine into my life.  So, Who’s sunny?  What does it actually mean to be sunny anyway?

Let’s try something new.  Anyone want a blog award?

Post 100 words or less (Flash Fiction) in the comments below.  The only rule is you have to use the word Sunshine.  If you just want to describe sunshine in a really beautiful way, that’s fine, too.   The ten best win.

Oh!  This sounds like fun!

I’ll announce the winners next week, but if less than ten people respond, everyone wins.  Yay!  Have fun!

  1. Hi Jennifer,

    Congratulations on this cheerful award and if I haven’t thanked you already, I’m thanking you now for following me! I’m following you, too, but I tend to be behind nowadays on reading blogs, so I wanted to make sure I did thank you! See you soon, Lauren 🙂

    Crap. Typo. 😉

    The late August sunshine filtered through the leaves, playing patterns over her face. Sweat glistened on her forehead and pasted the grey tank-top to her back. Wiping her eyes with the back of her hand, she peered into the viewfinder of her Nikon. It was worth it to brave the southern summer heat for this. She adjusted the focus on the zoom lens until the object of her attention came into sharp focus. She smiled.

    Okie dokie. Here’s my Sunshine Flash! Great idea, by the way…

  6. I’ve been blog-stalking without commenting for a little while now, but I couldn’t resist a writing challenge that involved the word “sunshine.” 😀 I had a lot of trouble smooshing it down to 100 words, but that’s what a writing challenge is all about, yeah? Please accept this humble offering:

    He’d been following her since daybreak.
    It was not for a full mile past the ribbon stall that she laughed aloud, tickled as a little boy chased his sister with a bug-eyed fish. He hastened to snatch the vial from his threadbare cloak and collect the threads of shimmering yellow that danced before his eyes, invisible to all but him.
    Once it was a third full he stopped it up with the cork and stored it in his pouch.
    The Master would be pleased. At long last, he had succeeded in his final test.
    He had bottled sunshine.

  7. I’m sorry about Oreo.

    Congrats on the award. I received this beautiful sunny award awhile back. It’s lovely.

    Have a wonderful week.

  8. Am I the only one even trying out for this? That’s ok. I don’t mind being a sure thing. 😛

    Huddled behind a jetting outcrop, she pressed her knees to her chest so hard that her muscles ached. Shoulders hunched against the frigid cold of the moonlit desert, she put her hands up to her ears in the hopes to stop the cold wind from entering her head. The sand under her bottom was bitter cold and hard as ice, a far cry from it’s daylight properties.

    Facing Eastward, she watched as the orange ball slowly appeared over the horizon. Nikki had never been happier to see the sun shine and feel the heat of its rays.

  9. I will definitely do this since I live in the Sunshine State. Hmm..

  10. Just in case you haven’t yet received the memo:

    “By yer” is, insider lingo for “me yet.”

    You’re welcome.

  11. SNORT! Jennifer, I scrolled down to comments. By this time of day you typically have a plethora of comments.

    Such loyal fans! Is it because your followers think, “EEK! If I comment, I’ll be tagged.”

    I’ve already been tagged for the Sunshine Award, so I think I’m immune.

    Worse, I have some catching up to do. I owe the awesome JKellerFord a ping-back and huge thanks for two awards she sent my way.

    I may also owe you another one. I know you aren’t shy. Why haven’t you prodded by yer?

    Is it, by chance the Seven by Seven? If yes, I have a very good semi-acceptable excuse for my delay. I had so few posts at the time you bestowed the honor on me, I couldn’t find posts that filled the requirements. Stay tuned.

    Off now to check out Jen’s new site.

  12. I have to work today, but I’ll be back tonight to enter this. 🙂
