The second award in this bouquet – The Sunshine Blogger Award – has been given to Otrazhenie by Donna.  This award is passed on by bloggers to fellow bloggers who “positively and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere. Very pleased, Donna, that you found my blog inspiring.

Rules of the award…Each person who gets an award is asked to answer this series of questions. In this way, others may know a little more about the blogger.

  1. Where would you most like to travel to?  Anywhere where there are interesting people.
  2. Do you have a sweet tooth?  No, not really. Love berries and fruit more than sweets.
  3. What motivates you to keep you blogging?  Interesting conversations with other bloggers, my visitors and followers.
  4. Who is your favorite comedian?  My children.
  5. What is your favorite outdoor activity?  Long walks with interesting people.
  6. Who was your favorite teacher and why?  Hm, can’t name one. I had lots of ‘teachers’ in life, including my best friends, favourite writers and poets, some of my followers and visitors – I learn a lot from their comments to my posts.
  7. Do you own any pets? Not any more. 😦 May be, one day will get another one.
  8. Most embarrassing moment in your life? (That you are willing to share.) Way too many to be shared, which is not surprising taking into consideration my usual daydreaming. 🙂
  9. Where are you from? I don’t like associating myself with a particular place. My soul belongs to New Zealand, with regard to my physical body,physical location does not matter much for me.
  10. How much wood could a wood chuck chuck if a wood chuck could chuck wood? Can’t tell anymore, as my tongue got all twisted in knots 🙂

My nominees (for one of these awards – the choice is yours 🙂 ):

Enjoy!!! 🙂
