🌞🤗 🌻 Thanks Steve at Steve’s Country for nominating me for this award! I am truly humbled.

Most of you already know how wonderful his blog is. Among His loves are capturing breathtaking photos, going on curious adventures, near-mishaps, (well, not actually a love😂) taming God’s wild creatures, coffee, nature and Muffin…If you haven’t checked his blog out already, don’t just take my word for it, go check it out! 😸 Muffin is shaking her head yes!

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 fruit?

I love a “good” watermelon!🍉🍉🍉 Even though I live in the South, it’s hard to find a perfectly sweet one without too much sodium added. But am a fan of all fruit, actually. 🍌 🍓 🍏 🍎 A fruit salad is the bomb! 😋

2. What one place in the world would you like to visit, outside your own country? I’ve answered this one before, my answer is still the same–Ireland.

3. Do you like pets? NO!I lovvvve ❤️ them! 😂😸🐶

4. Do you like beetles? A few maybe…Or were you referring to the music group, The Beatles?!😂 🤷‍♀️ Sorry…back to the question…

The Ladybug is my favorite.🐞 I didn’t know it was considered a beetle till today! And the Eastern Hercules Beetle. As kids, my little brother and I were fascinated with the ones we found crawling in our yard.

5. Do you enjoy flower gardening? 🤷‍♀️ My mother had a green thumb. My sisters have a green thumb. All I can say is I inherited half of my mother’s green thumb, or maybe even zilch! 😂 I like simple things that I can’t kill lol…not much of a green thumb here…

6. Do you enjoy yard work? I love mowing our grass, and we have lots of it. I love to rake leaves. I hate cleaning up the limbs that constantly fall with all these trees though😝! All that bending is a killer on the ole back!

7. Do you like winter? NO!!! I hate being cold. I do enjoy an occasional snow here and there though.

8. Do you enjoy traveling? YES! Too bad I couldn’t do this more often..😢

9. Do you enjoy moving? Nada!!! Non. Nope.

10. Do you prefer sunrise or sunset? (Notice the word prefer, means pick only one.) Now, Steve, no fair! You WOULD have to go and make me choose!!!…I guess it would have to be a sunset then.

11. How many hours of sleep do you prefer to have? I would “prefer” 8, but I’m lucky to get 6.


Now, for my QUESTIONS:

1. What is your favorite holiday?

2. If you had to choose between traveling by train, ship or plane, which would you choose, if any of these?

3. Would you sleep in a treehouse?

4. Would you sell your house, downsize and move into a cottage?

4. Would you eat something you consider yucky (like a spider) for a million dollars?

5. Do you prefer dressing up or casual, comfy clothes?

7. What was your worst childhood injury? (Broken toe, etc)

8. If given a choice, would you ski or scuba dive with the sharks?

9. What’s your favorite/dream vehicle?

10. If you could change the world, how would you do it?

11. Which do you prefer, moonlight or sunshine?

  2. Great answers Renee!! Watermelon is good but strawberries and wild blueberries are the best!!! And thanks too for the nomination, you have tough questions, especially number 4, although I see there are 2 of them so does that mean I get to pick which one to answer?😂

    • This is too funny Steve! 😹😹I didn’t catch this…Sometimes when I copy and paste, it will double number something. I don’t know if anyone else has trouble with this. It’s probably only me—cause if it’s gonna happen to someone, it would be ME! 😜 Answer either or both? We will say it’s optional!—My aunt has blueberry trees, so we got to pick some this year. I’ve never had wild strawberries, just wild blackberries and huckleberries. 😋

  5. Congratulations Renee! Well deserved as you do bring sunshine into our lives with each post you write, each like on everyone’s blog and your comments 🙂

    I can’t stand picking up sticks either. I prefer racking everything into a big huge pile and have a 🔥. Yeah shame on Steve more you choose and then you did the same to your nominees 😂😂

    Speaking of nominees, thank you so much. I love the questions. This will be fun 🙂
