  1. Hi Sunny. I love your answers but something intrigues me no end - what on earth do you mean by "floating"? Please tell a bear with little brain.

    Many hugs

  2. Love your answers Sunny, read this on your other blog.

  3. Congratulations on the award, Sunny! I don't know who Liebster is either, but I got the award a couple of years ago.

    I love Candy Crush too, but I'm stuck at level 90. I refuse to pay extra to win. Have you tried Dreamworld? Click on the blue sleeping owl when you start up Candy Crush to get there.


  4. You seriously make me want to be retired! That sounds awesome. Bagels, lox and capers (and tomatoes) is one of our dinner stand-bys when mama is too overwhelmed to cook. In fact, I may go fix one now.

  5. Congratulations Sunny Girl! It's always fun to learn more about each other - I really enjoyed your answers, even though it's a bit challenging to come up with them all.

  6. I loved your answers and the facts about you. This was great. Congrats on winning!


Thanks for stopping by. Make it a Great Day
