Sunshine Blogger Award #18.

Hello everyone on this nice, sunny and fairly mild Saturday!  Officially this is the first day of winter.  Right.  Not this far north.  We have had winter for 2 months already, and likely 4 more to go.  However, I’m hoping for an early spring.  Our last early spring was 5 years ago.  But anyway, that’s why today is a great day for the Sunshine Blogger award!! Betul gave me this award and I would like to thank her very much for doing so!!  The Sunshine award is so much fun.  Betul is from Turkey but presently at university in California.  Please check out her blog!

    • Thanks so much Sophie! And thanks for answering all my questions too! I think it’s a good thing to have a bucket list, gives us something to always work towards, even if it takes a while to get these things done.😁
      I’m glad I kept a journal of the times with my dad which I can now write about. A lot of the details I would have forgotten otherwise.😀✍
      You would stay calm with such a big spider? When it happened to me that’s what I did too because I wanted to kill it before it ran away. Those big spiders can move fast and can be dangerous for small animals like Muffin.🙀😬
      I hope you have a very wonderful week ahead Sophie! Please keep in touch!😁😸⛄🎄

      • Maybe I could not face it so calmly… I don’t know really because I’ve never faced it. (:
        Last time when I got a creepy stingy insect on my finger, I tried to quietly shove it away, so I guessed I could remain calm 🙂 ❤
        Thank goodness, Muffin was safe!
        And I'd really, really love to stay in touch! ❤

      • Those spiders have quite a strong venom, enough to make small animals quite sick, and sometimes even kill them. It can even make some people very sick.
        Hope your Monday was a nice one Sophie, always great to talk with you! Meow! Muffin agrees.😃😺😻⛄🎄

      • Hey Simon! Unfortunately by the time I was old enough to remember anything my older siblings had left home already.😳🤪😜 Maybe that’s why my dad and I spent so much time together, there was only me around!😂😹

      • Hi Simon, I’m getting to this late, even though it’s early, but it’s still late while being early. I think.🤔🙄 Now I’m confused.😵
        That’s it, use whatever time you can to make good memories with your family. It’s worth it!😃😃😺😺
        Late for you now, hope you had a great day!😁😸⛄🎄

  4. Congratulations!!! 🤸‍♀️
    LOL your last question is amazing; I love it. If I weren’t so busy, I’d take this and do it myself. 😉
    Anyways, if that were to happen to me, I’d either (1). Make sure it wasn’t poisonous, and if it weren’t, then try to pick it up. Or (2). Grab my camera and take ton of photos of it. I love spiders, so….😜
