At the end of March I discovered that April was the National Poetry Writers Month (NaPoWriMo) where people were challenged to write one piece of poetry per day. Prompts (purely optional) were given for each day. Never having publicly written poetry before I followed the prompts and put my poetry in this new blog. I watched my chart on wordpress.com and , lo and behold, people started reading it and I wasn’t getting hate comments! Then some comments came in saying that they actually liked some of it!
Now, be still my beating heart, I’ve been nominated twice for the “Sunshine award”. The first one, I assumed was a joke but after receiving the second one I decided to look it up.
The rules for the award are as follows:
A. Post the Sunshine Award logo.
B. Accept the nomination and link back to the nominator.
I certainly accept the nomination and am highly honored that you both not only read my poems but that you liked them! I’m also mega honored that two people that are actual poets nominated me. Thank you, thank you and thank you to:
who sent me encouragement and liked my titles. LOL! And to
who also sent me encouragement and when she found out I’ve always wanted to visit India but am afraid of crowds, invited me to stay with her! (I’ve been warned about people like that, LOL)
C. Answer the questions.
The Questions and Answers:
My favorite color: Pink and Green (or was that cheating?)
My favorite animal: Dog (Australian Terrier in particular)
My favorite number: 7
My favorite non-alcoholic beverage: Iced tea (un-sweet/no lemon)
My favorite alcoholic beverage: Jim Beam on the rocks

My passions: Dogs, antiques, glitter, money and the Adirondack Mountains in New York state (and no, this is not a part of New York City)
Giving or receiving gifts: Giving. But, why is it so hard to get people to accept a gift for what it is and not think of it as an obligation?
Favorite city: San Francisco, CA
Favorite TV shows: Sorry, I don’t have a television
D. Nominate ten other blogs and inform them of the nomination.
Ha! I get to nominate 20 because I was nominated twice!
