The Sun Shines Today!

Hello everyone and welcome to another Sunshine Blogger Award!  I received this one from my very good friend Ilona over at and I would like to thank you so very much Ilona for nominating me for this great award! I am sure you are all familiar with her wonderful and very inspirational blog, but if not, check it out and find out for yourself, you won’t be disappointed.  Again, thank you so very much Ilona, I truly appreciate that you would nominate me!  You certainly made my day!


  1. Use the sunshine blogger award logo
  2. Give thanks to the blogger that nominated you
  3. Answer the 11 questions given to you
  4. Nominate 11 other bloggers and ask them 11 questions


  1. What is your favorite health food or snack? I’m glad it says “or”, so I will pick one of each. Strawberries for health food and my all time favorite fruit🍓, and french fries for snack!🍟
  2. What is your favorite place to visit? Remember now, I was asked. But I will change it a little this time just to be different and just say a Nice warm place!😁😁
  3. What is the best thing about van life? There is something good about van life?🤔Let someone else do it, not for me.😂
  4. What was your very first pet? A cat.😺😸
  5. What is your favorite movie? Hmm, that’s a tough one. Meow. No Muffin, it’s about movies. MEOW. No, no, that’s not a movie. MEOW!!! WAIT, okay, Muffin likes 2 episodes of the original TV series “Mission Impossible”, one had an orange cat and the other a little dog and she loves watching those 2. Really, she does. Whew, that was close.
  6. Why did you start blogging? I enjoy writing and some friends suggested I should try blogging. Didn’t know anything about it, still don’t know much, but I have learned a lot along the way and it has been great fun. It has been nice to write things and actually have people read and enjoy what I write, which is quite amazing in itself. But it has also been fantastic getting to meet so many wonderful people from all over the world in this blogging community.
  7. Is family very important to you? Yes indeed, family is first with me.
  8. What do life mean to you? Is this a trick question? I mean, I’m alive or I wouldn’t be answering these questions, right? No? Hmm.🤔Think of a tree full of leaves. One leaf by itself can’t do much. But when all the leaves work together in a meaningful way, they produce a vibrant and flourishing tree.
  9. What is your favorite thing to do when traveling? Taking pictures!😃📷
  10. What do you love the most about blogging? See question 6, the blogging community.
  11. Who is your inspiration? My Dad, always. I love easy questions.  All questions should be easy.😃

Okay, now my questions:

  1. What is your favorite fruit?
  2. What one place in the world would you like to visit, outside your own country?
  3. Do you like pets?
  4. Do you like beetles?
  5. Do you enjoy flower gardening?
  6. Do you enjoy yard work?
  7. Do you like winter? If yes, you obviously don’t live around here. By winter I mean at least 5 months with snow on the ground and temps getting as cold as -30C (-22F).
  8. Do you enjoy traveling?
  9. Do you enjoy moving?
  10. Do you prefer sunrise or sunset? Notice the word prefer, means pick only one.
  11. How many hours of sleep do you prefer to have?

The nominees are:

I hope you all enjoyed it here once again for another award post and I hope to see you all again tomorrow here at Steve’s Country! God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

    • Wow, you like French fries too! Actually, there are a lot of people here who don’t like them, which is amazing. Ever tried them with maple syrup? I might have mentioned that in one award, can’t remember. Oh well. Thanks Huguette for such a great comment and I hope your day is going well, guess you are finished work for the day so enjoy your evening!😃😁🌞😺
