This or That Thursday

Thursday...the day I start my new watercolor art class...I am SO excited!  I would love to be able to do this justice in watercolor...we shall see!

If I understand it correctly, This or That Thursday is just that - a little bit of this, and a little bit of that!  So, today, I get to show off some new blog awards!  (The "This" part...)

My friend, Dianna, over at These Days of Mine, passed along some wonderful awards last week.  I was honored and excited to receive them...I love adding buttons to my sidebar!

The first one was the Sunshine Award.  This requires me to answer some questions about myself.

Favorite color: Red

Favorite animal: I have had dogs and cats throughout my life – love the independence of cats, and the affection of dogs.

Favorite number: Four – the number of children I had

Favorite non-alcoholic drink: Sweet tea

Prefer Facebook or Twitter? Facebook

My passion: My family – with photography right behind!

Prefer getting or giving presents: Giving. I struggle with receiving…

Favorite pattern: I love patchwork – is that a pattern?

Favorite day of the week: I don’t really have one any longer – retirement makes every day a great one!

Favorite flower: Roses!

The next award was the Genuine Blogger Award.  How much better can it get than Genuine!?  That one comes with no requirements - just acceptance.


And finally, the HUG Award.  What a beautiful thought - hope uniting globally!  This one simply requires that I pass it along to one person.  I know some of you aren't into blog awards, so although I would love to pass these along to you, I won't.  I will pass them to the following (the "That" part):

Beth at Elizardbreath Speaks - she is always a breath of fresh air!  Full of life and love - I enjoy reading her honest posts.

Cedar at Cedar's Photography - she is a very busy mom awaiting a new arrival from China very soon.  I love her photographs of her children and always enjoy her posts.

So there you have it - my new "bling" as my friend Sammy over at One Spoiled Cat would say.  Happy Thursday to all of you!

Good luck with the watercolor class, Linda! I'm sure you'll do a great job on that rose.
You're well deserving of the blog awards; aren't they fun?!

Have a great Thursday!

Well done Linda! I hope you will show us your water colour when you've finished. My favorite flower is the rose also.


Boy I ever love retirement time clock, no schedule. In fact this year, I am truly highly considerin' not even turning the clock for daylight savings....why I say? Besides it literally screws up my system.

As for your passion....I have a great suggestion...photograph family that way you've got both passions combined.

Now, for your watercolor this an actual -- paintbrush in hand type class, or something relating to computer graphics? Inquiring minds wanna know.

Oh, and not to forget your new awards....most deserving.
