Sunny Day Is Perfect For…


I was nominated for this award by Priya over at and if you have never checked out her blog then you should. She has a wonderful blog and good sense of humor (she must, she comes around hereπŸ˜‚).

What Is The Sunshine Blogger Award?

The Sunshine Blogger AwardΒ is peers recognition award for bloggers who inspire readers by promoting positivity and bringing joy.



  • Thank the person who nominated you and provide a link back to their blog so others can find them.
  • Answer the 11 questions asked by the blogger who nominated you.
  • Nominate 11 other bloggers and ask them 11 new questions.
  • Notify the nominees about it by commenting on one of their blog posts.
  • List the rules and display a Sunshine Blogger Award logo on your post and/or your blog site.

Okay, now it’s question time!

My Questions:

What are your hobbies and how did you get into them?

Hey, we would be here all day if I listed all my hobbies.Β  Okay, let’s start with insulator collecting. Those are the glass and porcelain things that hold wires to telephone, hydro and originally, telegraph poles. My Dad liked them and finally after a long time managed to convince me to collect as well.Β  Next, mineral samples.Β  This started as collecting rocks as a kid and gradually refined to collecting minerals from around the world. Now I try to stay with smaller samples. I will stop there.

What was your favorite age growing up?

I have to grow up? Nobody ever tells me these things. To be quite honest, I can’t think of a favorite age. MEOW! Oh, Muffin says when she was a year and a half, that’s when I adopted her, so that was her favorite age.

Was the last thing you read digital or in print?

Well, I’m doing this right now, so guess that would be digital. If you are referring to a book, then print.

What makes you feel most accomplished?

After I have accomplished a goal. I have a goal for this year, well, more than one, but one main goal, and I will definitely feel very accomplished after that goal is achieved.Β  Sorry, it’s a secret.

What do you regret not doing in the last year?

That’s a good question. I like good questions. Meow, meow, meow. Muffin says, not catching a chipmunk.Β  Hey, Muffin likes to join in too.😹

If you got to name a new country, how would you decide what to call it?

If I was single at the time, I would call it Steve’s Country, and if I was married I would call it after my wife’s name.Β  That was too easy.

What do you value the most in friendship?

Friends.Β  Gets easier all the time. Okay, I will add, trust, honesty, love, sharing, caring, giving. Could probably make a longer list, but I’ll stop there.

On what topic or topics, you would never make jokes?

Religion, sex.

How do you deal with negative emotions?

Does banging my head against the wall count?πŸ˜‚That was just a joke, to clarify. Meow. Muffin would like to share how she deals with it.Β  Chomp!Β  AAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!! My foot! Bandages!😲😹

Your ideal vacation?

Sorry, another secret.

When was the last time you cried? Why?

When my last cat died.

My 11 new questions for my nominees are;

  1. Which do you prefer, oceanside, prairie, forest, or mountains?
  2. Do you enjoy being alone and why?
  3. Your favorite thing to do on a rainy day?
  4. Do you like spiders? Why or why not?
  5. Your favorite cookie?
  6. Steak dinner or salad?
  7. Are stats on your blog important to you?
  8. Do you find it easier to communicate with people online or in real life?
  9. Do you like to travel?
  10. What are the top 3 countries you would like to visit?
  11. Your 3 favorite fruits?

And now I will nominate the following, however, I’m not contacting anyone, you will have to read to find out! I know. I’m terrible. I also have some more questions given me by another blogger which I will be answering later in another post.


Okay, I know it’s supposed to be 11, but, as I mentioned before, I can’t count!!πŸ˜‚ So much for rules, right?Β  Oh well, more for next time.Β  I hope you have enjoyed my answers and your time here at Steve’s Country, please come back again next time for more…of something. I hope you all have a great day and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

    • Thanks so much Huguette! I just don’t pay much attention to counting unless it’s something that really counts!πŸ˜‚ Yes, sometimes dreams and goals are best kept secret until they arrive, wheehee! Okay, I’m a bit crazy today, it’s been a great day! I will be showing more of my collections soon as well, it’s amazing how much is in this little place. The clouds have come and the temp is dropping fast. Sometimes I wonder if these trees will get leaves this year!πŸŒ³πŸ˜‚

  4. I had a very good friend who collected insulators. We had great fun going on junking trips to find them (and other treasures!). I love to read these award posts and your answers, they are always both fun and make me laugh but also are so inspiring to me. Your answer to ‘the things you would never make jokes about’ struck me very powerfully. Part of the abuse I escaped was having adults making inappropriate jokes about both to me, as a small child. I am so glad to know there are many out there with integrity and who wouldn’t dare ‘go there’. Thank you for that. I love your blog as well as your integrity, your heart, and the way you pick up on the good, Godly things of wonder in this world. ❀️ Keep up the great work and tell Muffin hello from an admirer!!
