Liebster Award! Times 2.

Hello once again everyone on what started to be a nice sunny day and then turned into a big thunderstorm, which mostly missed us fortunately, but it still gave us rain so everything is wet once more.  That rain kind of dampened any possibility of getting some pictures today, so I thought, since I am indoors anyway, it’s a good time for another award post.  I still need to catch up on my awards or people will stop nominating me, that would be no good.  Today it is two in one, since the questions on both are the same.  Therefore my answers will…meow!  Oops, I mean, our answers would be the same.  So it just makes sense to do them both together.

I received these nominations from my good friend Ilona at and Simon over at and both have great blogs for you to check out full of inspiration and great thoughts on a number of different topics.  Thank you Ilona and Simon for thinking of me for this award, it is much appreciated by me! Meow!  Oh, Muffin also appreciates it!  I wonder where I put my shoes?


  1. Say ‘Thank you’ to the Blogger who nominated you.
  2. Share 11 facts about yourself.
  3. Answer the questions the blogger asked you.
  4. Nominate 11 lucky bloggers and make them happy.
  5. Ask 11 questions to your nominees.
  6. Notify your 11 nominees.

Random facts about myself;

  1. I don’t smoke.
  2. I can’t cook.
  3. I love baking.
  4. I have to be on a gluten free diet.
  5. I am an outdoor person.
  6. I am owned by a 10 lb cat named Muffin.
  7. I enjoy hiking.
  8. I like collecting antiques.
  9. I’m taller than some people and shorter than others.
  10. I have written over 400 poems.
  11. I don’t drink alcohol.


  1. Is blogging your hobby or Job? Just a hobby.
  2. How do you choose your content? I usually don’t, I just sit down at my computer and start to write.  Sometimes I will pick something specific, usually because someone has suggested it to me or just an idea I had.  Right now I am planning some posts for the winter.😲
  3. Who is your blogger inspiration, one person true from heart? Hmm, someone else trying to get me in trouble, actually 2 people! I can actually get inspiration from several different bloggers, but if I can only pick one then it would be Ilona.👱‍♀️
  4. Did you ever liked blindly? Yes, I have done so in the past, but not now. When I like now it’s because I read the post and actually did like it.😀
  5. Do you simply comment, Or you read and comment as you mean it? I only comment if I have actually read the post, sometimes short comments, sometimes longer comments, just depends on the post and how tired I am. However, not commenting does not mean I didn’t read the post.😀🙄
  6. Do you workout, What else you do to keep healthy? No, I don’t workout. I do go walking each day and I have been changing my eating habits to eat more healthy foods.😃🥗
  7. Ever felt anxious about what others will say? Depends on who is saying it and why.
  8. Will you unfollow me if i give you an honest feedback on one of your worst blog? No, I wouldn’t, providing you did it in a respectful way, but if you are just trying to be nasty then probably yes. MEOW!! Oh, and Muffin says she will bite your foot if you’re nasty.😼😸
  9. Which one is your favourite post? Meow, meow, meow.  Um, Muffin says any where she has a major part!😹
  10. Which one is your worst post?  Meow! Meow! Meow!! Muffin says any where she is not mentioned!😼
  11. Who did you hate in your followers list, List them all? Don’t have such a list.

Well, that’s it for that part, now the nominees;

And now, the questions, this part is getting as hard as answering the questions😂:

  1. When did you start blogging?
  2. How often do you post?
  3. Do you enjoy hiking/running/walking?
  4. Do you enjoy swimming?
  5. Do you go on vacations every year?
  6. Do you like gardening?
  7. What is your favorite color for a kitchen?
  8. Do you prefer modern vs antique?
  9. Do you like a lot of clutter or a minimalist look?
  10. Outdoor or indoor person?
  11. What is your favorite season? And why?

Okay everyone, there we have it once more for your entertainment today.  I hope you enjoyed my, oh, and Muffin’s, answers.  Enjoy your week and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

  3. I know you love the bright sunlight but pretty nature pictures can be taken while raining too, but then you’d have to face the cold hahaha 😀 Yeah, I’m feeling a bit evil right now 😁

    Me too! I can’t cook ( I mean used to be) but I love baking ❤

    400 poems?! Wow that… uh, thank you for nominating me. I'm typing comment in a notepad while scrolling down and I just saw my blog haha 😀

    And I don't agree. Answering questions is way easier than coming up with one. 😦 But never had this award yet so thanks Steve.

    • Yes, pictures can be taken in rain, but not with my camera. I have tried, but the colors are just not good, everything looks a bit washed out!😂Really, it does though. I like writing poems, they are not all good, but I like it anyway! You’re welcome, have fun with it! Well, depends on the question I guess, some people get too hard with their questions! I hope you have a great day!!😃🌞😺

    • I always like being specific in my answers!😂Lots of poems, not all good though, but I still enjoy writing them. Well, I am on the gluten free diet now, though sometimes it does get hard to stay on it all the time. But I do feel better being on the diet anyway.😀No rush on the award, I’m never fast myself although I’m trying hard to get caught up this time!😂😹Maybe I need to let Muffin do more of them.😸😽 Enjoy the remainder of your day Huguette and thanks for reading this!!😃🌞😺

  6. Aw you and Ilona are super cute! That is where I first met you.
    Interesting—“blindly liking”. Seems to be a thing? What is the point? Glad you don’t anymore.
    Thank you for thinking of me, Steve. I’ve so enjoyed our many conversations—always you brighten my day! I gladly accept your nomination. I need to tell 11 things about myself and answers your questions? You are making me work! Haha! Ok…I’m going to have some with this. 😊🙃😊🙃

    • Well, I can understand calling Ilona super cute, but…, yes, I remember first seeing you there.
      I didn’t know much about blogging when I first started, but you’re right, what’s the point? At the start I was following people just because they followed me, not because I was interested in their blog. I’ve changed that idea now. Yes, I enjoy our conversations as well, most people don’t like to talk much it seems. I hope you have fun with it for sure! Enjoy your day Nina and thanks for reading!!😄🌞😸


      • Haha! Live and learn…right?
        Yes, I am have having fun with this. Many unexpected surprises. Like you said—I didn’t know much either. Just went in head first! And I see how in the beginning people followed me—liked me, blah blah blah only so I would follow and like back. That’s ok. Live and learn. I simply can’t follow everyone! Nothing personal…
        I’m glad to know you, Steve and Muffin! (thanks Ilona and Huguette!)
        You enjoy your day as well. Today we’ve been splitting and stacking wood for winter. Always working…
