A ray of sunshine

I’m thrilled and honored that Saving My Life: Breaking the Yo-Yo has nominated me for a Sunshine Award. It’s so lovely to know that someone out there appreciates what you have to say – isn’t that why we write? I’ve been admiring this attractive Sunshine Award graphic on other blogs for a long time…and now I get to add it to Mom Goes On!


Sunshine Award Rules:

  • Use the logo above in the post
  • Link to whoever nominated you
  • Write ten pieces of information about yourself
  • Nominate ten fellow bloggers
  • Leave a comment on the nominees’ blogs to tell them of the award

Here goes:

Ten Pieces of Info About Me

1. Anyone who knows me now finds this hard to believe (I now have neither the physique nor the temperament), but I was a cheerleader in both junior high and high school. I loved wearing that adorable uniform!

2. I have a sister who is 18 years younger than I am.

3. I’ve lived in the same house for 25 years now. I love that sense of permanence.

4. I hate getting my hair cut. I’ll put it off for months rather than sit in that chair and try to make conversation with someone I don’t know.

5. I studied German for eight years in school. Mainly chose German because everyone else chose Spanish or French.

6. Also took piano lessons for eight years. I’ve lost most of that ability, but who knows…maybe I’ll take it up again one day.

7. I love to read cozy mysteries. Totally an escape from real life.

8. I can make a whistle sound like a dove by blowing through cupped hands. Learned this vital skill while in junior high.

9. It’s a dream of mine to one day live in Europe.

10. I love a good thunderstorm.

  1. Congratulations and thank for the nomination!! ❤
    I love thunderstorms too! Who is your favorite mystery author? I like Carol Higgins Clark. 😀 Haha, I put off haircuts as well. :/ Twice a year is my average… lol


    • I had to stop reading Carol Higgins Clark and her mom – just too creepy for me to relax while reading! I love tons of cozy authors – here are a few: Hazel Holt, Donna Andrews, Susan Witting Albert, Elizabeth Duncan, Carola Dunn, Alexander McCall Smith…I think I might get my hair cut today. 😦 But it will be good to have it over with.


      • I only attempted one of Mary H Clark’s books – MUCH more intense than her daughter’s books! O_O Thanks for the recommendations!
        And enjoy getting it over with! 😉


  2. Thank-you!!! and I love to read all of your blog posts too 🙂 I am sure if we ever met in person, we would be great friends…. but being blog friends is pretty good too.
