The Sunshine Blogger Award – 2018

I was nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award by Jenny Litchfield a Kiwi Blogger, she writes a lot about nature, loves her garden and believes in conservation, a lady after my own heart.

Thank you, Jenny, it is a very muggy damp day today, but you have made the sunshine on me even though I’m inside sitting at my computer and there is no sun shining outside today.

What is the Sunshine Blogger Award?

The sunshine blogger award is given to bloggers by other bloggers who are positive and inspiring while spreading sunshine to the blogging community.

This is the third time I have been nominated for this award but I happily accept it as it always brightens up my day and I hope it does the same for you.

Jenny’s Questions for me

1. Who inspires you and why?

My Family – I’m very proud of them and I love them all.

This photo is four generations, the baby is my twelve great-grandchild, I have had two more great-grandchildren born since this photo was taken.


2. Where is the most relaxing place you have been?

To be quite honest I don’t really relax anywhere except my home, it is my sanctuary, where I can see and see everything that makes my life perfect, my husband, family, and garden where I really relax, usually pulling weeds and pruning plants of dead flowers.

3. What song/music puts you in a good mood? Christian Music

How Great Thou Art with lyrics performed by Chris Rice

4. What kind of weather do you like the most? Sunny, but not too hot.


This is a perfect day for me, this photo was taken in Waitara, my hometown and I love it, in the background, you can see Mount Egmont/Taranaki NZ.

5. Do you have a favorite quote that you like to share?

“Learn to write by doing it. Read widely and wisely. Increase your word power. Find your own individual voice though practicing constantly. Go through the world with your eyes and ears open and learn to express that experience in words.”
