  1. I’ve been stuck on the same blog post for days now, and was wondering how you write blog posts so fast? It takes me forever to write mine. Then again, I don’t write every day…. 🤷‍♀️

    Congrats on the award! And congrats on completing the award. That’s the hardest part – writing it! LOL

    • Hi Hilary and thanks for reading! I think it takes me longer to write an award post than any other post!
      I am constantly writing so I usually have posts done ahead. And I would likely have more time to write than you have, especially these days.
      Sometimes though I seem to hit a brick wall and just can’t write, so I have some posts reserved for times like that. But still, most posts are done at the time, like Muffin’s posts,😸 and most others. But my adventures with my dad are usually done ahead.😀
      Hope you have a wonderful day! Dress warm when you’re in that library!😃😺🌞

  2. Well well Steve and Muffin, I really enjoyed and had a good laugh reading this 🙂
    First of all congratulations to both of you!
    And yes, very strange place you’ve choose to live since you love warm places 🙂
    I love warm places too and I’ve chosen Singapore for now where are almost all the time around 29 degrees C and sometimes I’m still cold 😄😄😄

    • Thank you so much for reading Ribana! Glad you enjoyed a laugh with it.😄😸
      It is a strange place to live for sure!
      Nice to know someone else likes warm places too and those temps sound just perfect! One of these days perhaps. But for now, here I am.😂😹I hope you have a wonderful day!😁😸🌞🌴


  3. Congrats Steve! That is quite an accomplishment! #15! Love the quote from Spurgeon! And the fact about you living in a cold place and loving warm places is always interesting…I can’t see you leaving all your cool nature friends and beautiful nature walks there. You can still think warm thoughts in cold places though. 🙂 I wish you and Muffin a cozy and warm winter. 😸
