Saturday Souvenirs: Sunshine Blogger Award - 2013

Happy Saturday Souvenirs! I received the Sunshine Award this week from a fellow flashfiction author Sheilagh Lee. It's an honor to be included in her list and I'm happy to share it with all of you.

As per the rules listed below, here are my answers for the Q & A questions…

Favorite Color: Burgundy - the color of sunsets, dragonfyre, and dried blood ;)

Favorite Animal: Coyote

Favorite Number: "5" - its lucky in that it matches my fingers and toes. :D

Favorite Non-alcoholic Drink: Coffee - hands down. No question.

Facebook or Twitter: Facebook for me. I like the ease of interaction and photo sharing.

Your Passion: Hmm, other than writing? That would have to be paleontology. I dig up dead things and identify them down to species by studying teeth left in the fossil record.

Giving or getting presents: Giving, unless it’s books, chocolate…or coffee.

Favorite Day: Autumn Equinox - when the days are still warm, but the nights are cool and the world smells like "October" even though it's still September. BTW "October" smells like leaves baking in the sun, pumpkin spices, and crisp mornings. ;)

Favorite Flowers: Geraniums for color, gardenias for scent.

Now to spread the wealth. All of the bloggers I've chosen are supportive, talented, and friendly bloggers, writers, and authors who are worth following/friending and getting to know.

  1. Burgundy, you had me at sunsets and then you had to mention dried blood, lol. Coffee, it's my addiction. Love your descriptors for October and it totally explains why it's my favorite time of year. Thanks for including me in your list. Very cool. :D

  2. Your description of October is beautiful, Siobhan! That IS what October smells like. :-) In my neck of the woods, I might include the smell of overripe apples lying on the ground in an old orchard. :-)

    Coyotes? The tricksters. :-)

    I wanted to get to this sooner, but I'm running hopelessly behind. I'm starting to see the light. Thanks for including me! I'll get to this in the next week.

    Have a great weekend! And thank you again. :-)
