It’s Time To Play…

First I would like to say a special thank you to my good friend Ilona for nominating me for today’s “Behind the blogger book tag”! Ilona is a very kind, honest person who is always willing to be a help to others and she has been a real encouragement and help to me in my blogging journey. She is always positive, willing to give a wonderful smile to brighten up everyone’s day, and she has a true heart of gold.  You can find her blog at;

If you want some good motivation to start your day, that is the place to go.  Now, on to the tough part!



• Thank the person who nominated you

• Answer all the questions down below

• Pingback to the creator: Ellyn @ Allonsythornraxx

• Nominate 5+ bloggers you’d like to know more about, to do this tag.



Here are the questions with my answers:

1. Why did you start blogging & why have you kept blogging?

I enjoyed writing, mostly in a comical way, and someone suggested I should start a blog and share my writing that way. I admit, I was a bit nervous about the idea since I never really thought people would enjoy what I write. But it turned out that many like my little stories, which are all true stories from my life.  And I really enjoyed blogging, so here I remain.

2. What is your favorite type of blog post to write?

Mostly anything comical about myself, but I also enjoy writing about my experiences in nature, with my animal friends.

3. What are your top 3 favorite blog posts?

Any of the ones under Muffin’s Mewsings, but really, I don’t have any personal favorites, that’s up to my readers, everyone likes something different!

4. What are some of your favorite things to do to relax?

Getting tougher all the time with these questions! And I don’t have Muffin to help me this time. Some favorite things to relax, dreaming of being in a warm place, being by a lake enjoying the quiet, dreaming of being in a warm place, enjoying a nice cup of coffee with friends, dreaming of being in a warm place, reading with Muffin curled up on my lap purring, writing and dreaming of being in a warm place.  That’s a few things anyway.

5. What are 3 of your favorite things?

Actually, it’s kind of hard to pick just 3 things, but here goes; family, good friends, cats, chipmunks and dreaming of being in a warm place. It’s cold here again today, can you tell?

6. What are your proudest blogging moments?

I agree with Ilona on this and change that from proudest to happiest. That would be when I passed my goal of reaching 200 followers, which I must admit, I didn’t really think I would make it to that. Ilona really encouraged me and helped me a lot in reaching that goal. Now my new goal is 500! Let’s go!!

7. What are your hobbies outside of blogging?

Good, an easy one, I think. Writing poems, feeding birds, collecting, collecting and more collecting. Mostly that would be antiques, but also rocks and minerals and fossils. My newest hobby of photography ( I still have a lot to learn on that one, but it’s fun), also walking. Probably more things too!

8. Describe your personality in 3 words:

This is real easy, I am crazy!😜🙃😂 But I’m fun too. Let’s see, that’s crazy, fun, honest and serious when I need to be. Plus I can’t count.😂

9. What are your top 3 pet peeves?

I will have to copy Ilona on this one, cheating, lying, dishonesty.  I could do more, but notice I have learned to count now.

10. What’s something your followers don’t know about you?

This one is tough. Hmm. I guess I’m what would be called an introvert.  It’s takes a special kind of person to pull me out and get me talking.

Whew, that’s it I guess.  Now my nominees are;

That’s it for today folks, I hope you will join me again tomorrow for more fun and adventures.  Until then, enjoy your day and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

    • Thanks so much Ilona for taking the time to come over and read, I truly appreciate that! I don’t know about getting any pictures tonight, unless that bear shows up early, supposed to get snow again tonight and tomorrow. I sure hope that forecast is wrong though. My fingers are doing better, one is still swollen a bit though. Sleep well!😃😴

  5. I so enjoy reading your posts Steve. Somehow you always put a smile on my face. I knew you could count you just needed practice 😂. I have no doubt brother you will hit the 500 follower milestone before I do and I’ve been doing this going on seven years now.

    Are you still dreaming about that warmer place? Right now I’m dreaming of one without any rainfall.

    Have a great weekend brother!

    • Hi Stu, thanks for the nice comment and taking the time to read! I never thought I would make my first goal of 200, now I’m past that, quite amazing! Yes, I am still dreaming of a warmer place for sure! And I’m working on making that a reality, at least for a vacation. Have a great day Stu!😃
