Some Sunshine after a long time

Ebar of a Girl with binoculars has very kindly nominated me for a Sunshine Blogger Award

My heartfelt thanks to Ebar for this nomination and these ver interesting questions. Please check out her blog where she writes about a variety of topics.

My questions:

1. How are you, really?

I am good. Contented with my life and at peace. There are always things that aren’t perfect in life but that is part of life. So, yes, I am good. Alhamdolillah ( Thank God)

2. What was the best age of your life?

Now is the best age of my life. As I believe in living in the moment, I feel what is now, the present, it’s the best time of our lives. Besides getting older, ( I’m almost 60 now) has a lot of advantages. You can dress as you like, act as you please, and say outrageous things because people will just shrug and say that she has grown old!

3. What is your best method of relaxation?

I like walking with music, and then the second best is blogging after I’m done for the day. It relaxes me and amuses me.

4. If you have a favourite movie, which one would it be?

There are so many movies I love that I cannot just pick out one. I would go and watch any of the Marvel movies, or a James Bond movie, or a good animated movie at the drop of a hat.

5. How about a book? Which one would you choose?

My most loved book is the Holy Quran. I read it daily and it gives me everything. Guidance, peace, and understanding of life.

6. What do you think of psychology and the way it can help people?

I think everyone should have a basic understanding of psychology. It helps in all walks and roles of life. If we all had a working knowledge of it, we wouldn’t be having so many issues with our relationships.

7. What’s your favourite food?

I am basically a vegetarian. I love well-cooked daal, veggies. The best vegetarian food I ate was from a restaurant in Seattle, veggie grill. They had such scrumptious veggie burgers there that like of such that I haven’t tasted since!

8. What’s your favourite social media platform?

Without a doubt, WordPress. If you call a blogging platform, social media!

9. Do you like hot or cold weather, and why?

I like cooler weather better than hot weather. I feel hot most of the time so cold weather works better for me. Spring and fall are great too because the temperatures are moderate.

10. What’s your idea of an perfect day?

A happy day, free from undue stress, with my family around me.

11. Finally, if you could change something in the past, what would it be?

I don’t want to change anything in the past as that is simply a recipe for disaster. Change the present or the future, don’t mess with what’s done and gone.


The RULES are simple:

•Thank the blogger who nominated you and link back to their blog.

•Answer the 11 questions sent by the person who nominated you.

•Nominate 11 new bloggers to receive the award and write them 11 new questions.

•List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or your blog

I have answered the question and followed the first two rules. But unfortunately, I feel that nominating people for blogging awards is not easy. Most people have now a award free blog and are not keen to play this game.

So I am taking the easy way out. If anyone wants to answer the questions put to me by Ebar, please consider yourself nominated. Thanks for reading.

Many thanks to Ebar for nominating me for this award.

  1. Loved your answers. Congrats on the nomination!
    I liked how you took the easy way out 😅 Nomination is the hardest part of awards.

    Also, “you can say outrageous things when you are old and people would excuse you”- 🤭 I say outrageous things now and I’m never excused. Can’t wait to get old! 👵🏼

    1. Thank you Sam. Nomination is not hard if everyone wanted to accept. Now most blogs are award free so it seems a waste of effort to nominate someone only to be told that to hey don’t do awards. It’s better to invite anyone who wants to participate.
