A Little Sunshine

We could all do with a little sunshine! And thanks to the lovely Siv Maria over at Been there, Done that, I've got a little extra to spread around :)

Here are the questions that go along with the award...

Favourite Number: don't really have one, but my son wore 10 in hockey so let's go with that
Favourite Colour: to wear? Blue. To have around me? Green. To enjoy? Red & purple.
Favourite animal: wolf or gorilla
Favourite non-alcoholic drink: chai tea
Facebook or Twitter: Twitter - I haven't joined FB yet :)
My passions are: my family, teaching, reading, writing, music, sports
Getting or giving presents: giving!
Favourite pattern: 1, 4, 9, 16, 25... (square numbers) (sorry, couldn't resist - plus I don't wear patterns)
Favourite Day of the Week: Saturday
Favourite Flower: Daisy

Thanks as well to the wonderful Kela McClelland over at Teardrops on My Book. Kela awarded me the Versatile Blogger award. I'm supposed to tell you 7 random things, but I've already shared enough for today. :) I hope you'll pop on over and visit Kela though!

I'm not going to follow the pass-along rules (shock, I know!), but I'd like anyone who wants to, to snag either of these awards. If you visit here, you definitely bring me some sunshine!

Choose one of the questions and give me your answer!

  2. Congratulations on the award!

    I haven't joined Facebook, either, and have no desire to. :P

    I love your answer to the patterns question--you're the first person who used numbers!

  4. Golden Eagle - I wasn't sure about that one - didn't know if people would think I was nuts ... or more nuts! :)

    Old Kitty - thanks! Chai Tea is like drinking Christmas - best flavour in the world. I like the Tim Horton's and Tetley's versions best :)

    ReplyDelete
  5. I'm a reluctant facebook user - more of a reader than a sharer, liker, etc. Haven't touched twitter, though it may be more useful in some ways....

    ReplyDelete
  6. Jeff - I like the brief connections on twitter, the chats, and the fact that I can ignore it when I need to and it's absolutely fine! :)

    Yvonne.

    Dezzy - and where do you think I got my favourite colours from??? :)

  10. Congrats on your award!

    I have a FB writer page. None of the social stuff goes with it. I love it.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Oh, I'm on Facebook but not Twitter. Oy! Hey Jemi, it's fun learning these different things about you. Chai Tea is my have as well.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  17. Congrats on the award. I need to join Twitter.

    ReplyDelete

  19. Susan - good to hear! I've never been one to follow the regular path! :)

    Natalie - twittter is more fun than I thought. I found it intimidating at first, but not any more.

    Teresa - that's why I haven't joined FB - it's hard enough to keep up with the social media I've already got going. :)

  20. I could use some sunshine today! Let's see - favorite flower is the calla lily! I love them so much, I named my dog after them!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Jennie - sunshine is ALWAYS good! The calla lilies are so pretty - but I can't breathe anywhere near them! I'll let you enjoy them close up! :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Hey, Jemi,

    THanks for spreading the sunshine.

    Congrats. Very surprising answers, especially about your favorite animal.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Michael - Farley Mowat influenced me there -- Never Cry Wolf & Virunaga. Both true stories - and both incredible!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I know this probably won't surprise you... but I love daisies too! (And blue and chai tea--have you had a chai tea latte? The local independent coffee shop makes the best ever!)

    ReplyDelete
  25. Jean - not surprised in the LEAST! File it under coincidence! :) The Chai tea lattes are wicked!! I've only had a couple - but they are good :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Great to know you a little better! I like giraffes. Love the square number pattern. Some people like prime numbers. Me, I like them both. And Facebook for me, thank you very much.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Stephen - I do love my prime numbers too. I almost went there - or with triangular numbers, but I like my squares :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Count me in with a cupa Chai! Yummers!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Lol, I'm also quite fond of that pattern ;-) And the Fibonacci one!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Rachel - Fibonacci is a good one! My students always get a kick out of that one when I show them :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Ha! I'm a non-pattern wearing person as well! Congrats on your award.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Lynda - yay! Most people think I'm nuts! :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Congrats on the award!

    Favorite flower? Roses!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Nas - roses are so pretty! And they smell divine. Great choice! :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. Now I'm craving chai tea.

    Favorite animal is a tiger. I know, it should be a wolf, shouldn't it?

    ReplyDelete
  36. Diane - it really should!!! :)

    Chai tea is always available here - you're welcome to join me any time!!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Chai tea - yum!

    I'm on both Twitter and Facebook but don't use them a lot. Hard to keep up on the postings!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Susanne - It's really hard to keep up with it all. I haven't even looked into FB or Pinterest or any other sites. Too much at this point. So, let's sit back with our Chai tea and relax :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. Hey Jemi,
    I know, you've been waiting for one of my um 'must read' comments. Okay, you might have to wait a bit longer:)
    Delighted you have received the "Sunshine Award". Fits perfectly with your sunny disposition.
    What? You haven't joined 'Farcebook', everyone's favourite social 'notworking' site? Good grief, I joined Farcebook so that all my um Farcebook 'friends' could be thrilled to pieces with my vital profile updates such as, 'I just went to the kitchen to make a cup of coffee and now I have finished my coffee and will go back to the kitchen to make another cup of coffee and proceed to do a run on sentence due to all the caffeine from the cups of coffee....'

    ReplyDelete
  40. Gary - of course I've been waiting!!! :)

    If I ever have a book to sell, I'll join Facebook and add in my similar updates - just have to substitute the tea for coffee! :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. I love your different reasons for picking different colors.

    Oh and I adore chai tea :0)

    ReplyDelete
  42. Elisabeth - yay! Another Chai tea fan!! :) I pretty much love all colours - so I had to give more than one favourite :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. Do Canadians spell *favourite* that way? I know the British do. But my spell check and I think you could do without the *u.*

    Favourite Number: Hmmm ... can't think of one though they certainly are not all equal (lol). I suppose 1.

    Favourite Colour: depends on where the color resides. Clothing - black and fuschia (hot pink), accent wall in dining room - Roasted Red Pepper (haven't done that yet), nails - vary with the season, etc.

    Favourite animal: puppies and kittens

    Favourite non-alcoholic drink: Ice Water or REAL Lemonade

    Facebook or Twitter: Facebook though I tweet once in a while

    My passions are: faith, family, friends, writing

    Getting or giving presents: giving!

    Favourite pattern: not much of a pattern girl but I like lace or polka dots

    Favourite Day of the Week: Saturday

    Favourite Flower: Daisy or Shasta Daisy

    ReplyDelete
  44. Beth - we have a lot the same!! Daisies are so joyful! We Canadians do spell a lot of words with a 'u' - favourite, colour, neighbour...

    ReplyDelete
  45. My oldest son wore #10 throughout his little league / high school baseball career! :)

    ReplyDelete
  46. flower - lilacs
    passion - swimming, dogs, hiking, snowshoeing, kayaking

    love reading your answers.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Terry - I like lilacs, but I can't breathe around them! I wish I could :)

    ReplyDelete
  48. Congrats on the award Jemi.

    p/s: it's daisies for me too :-)))

    ReplyDelete
  49. Agnes - daisies really are the best! :)
