**Sunshine Blogger Award**

I’m beyond grateful that I became part of a blogging community that welcomed and supported me and sometimes lectured me where I needed it 😉. Until a couple weeks ago I didn’t even know this community excisted and here I go already with my 3rd nomination. Not only is it pretty cool when fellow bloggers stop by and take time to read- but it’s touching to find out they considered you worthy for an award. Recently while I was sleeping a fellow blogger on the other side of the world nominated me for the Sunshine Blogger Award. Waking up to those news made my entire day!

Nash, thank you for nominating me- it means the world to me! You have been following and supporting me from the start and your thoughtful, humorous comments always leave me either smiling, laughing out loud or with a boost to my self-esteem.

Please do check out his blog. He’s writing about interesting topics, psychology included and also touching subjects others would be shy to talk about- very courageous! My absolute favorite are his bedtime stories, though.


The Sunshine Blogger award is given by bloggers to bloggers who inspire positivety and creativity in the blogging community.


1. Thank the blogger who nominated you in your blog post and link back to the blog.

2. Answering 11 questions that the Blogger asked you.

3. Nominate 11 new bloggers to receive the awards and write them 11 questions.

4. List the rules and display the Sunshine blogger award logo in your post on your blog.


1.Dog or cat ? Hmm, that’s a hard one. I have both and love them all. But… since I’m not on good terms with my cat (she jumped up on a new tarp roof and scratched and tore it to pieces just recently) I will answer with: dog. (You might get a different answer if you ask me again another time😉)

2.Moon or Mars ? Moon

3.Health or money ? Definitely health over money!!
4.Favorite car ? Dreaming big it would be a BMW cabriolet. But since I’m living off grid, remote, have to pass creeks and jungle roads.. I need something sturdy: so I will answer with Toyota- Tacoma pickup truck , double cab and four wheel drive.
5.Favorite virtue for every person is ? Honesty and Loyalty.

6.What should i change on my blog ?

I don’t want you to change your blog, because I really like it how it is.However you could start writing your stories with sequels, end where the story is filled with suspense and leave the reader hanging, trying to figure out what would happen next..

7.Best blogger from your choice is ? I don’t like to answer this kind of question with just one blog name. There’s a few I really like (yours included)

8.Your favorite color ? BLUE- and all shades of it.
9.You are having a bad nightmare what would you do to stop it ? I rarely ever do.. and if, I somehow manage to wake up before things are getting too bad.
10.Are you in love ? With my family, yes! And always all over again when there’s new babies born on my homestead😍
11.Ask me something ? When was the last time you climbed a tree?

    1. Haha, I just didn’t know what else I could ask .. and I’m still climbing trees (fruit trees usually) sometimes with help of the ladder (does that count😉?)

    1. Aww thank you and I’m so happy to hear that. Here’s the story behind the story : I got Zoe from the Rescue about a year ago. My first mistake was naming her Zoe (meaning life) but it fit her so much better than the name she got there! She recently started to make noise at night, so it was decided she has to stay outside for the nights. Nope, not with her. She found an opening to come back in (we live in a tropical climate and until our house is finished are staying in a sub-standard building😉) ok opening got closed up with wire-Mash and Zoe had to come up with another idea: didn’t take her long to figure out she could climb the tarp-roof tent beside the house and from there jump through the gap between metal roof and wall. With her jumping attempts she completely ruined the tarp roof (my sun and rain protection for doing laundry 😬)
      Ahh and guess who won the fight about staying inside or outside 😅

  2. Congrats and thank you so much for the nomination (my very first 🙂 ). Great answers! I’ll get on with replying as soon as my computer is back in business (hopefully just a power cable replacement)…i can type but not do anything complicated like copying and pasting on my phone!

    1. Phew, good 😉 I agree with you on the subject of cats – ours can be so infuriating when they want but really laid back at all other times. I love your tree question (as I gather do most other commenters) and I’ve been trying to remember when it was that i last climbed one myself. I honestly can’t remember…so it’s about time I took care of it. Thanks for the reminder 😉

    1. At first I got confused with the names (there’s another name appearing connected to your blog) but I fixed it this morning ☺and I absolutely mean it because in the short time you follow me you left so much sunshine on my blog already. Thank you and I’m looking forward to your response☺
