Hello everyone on this very beautiful, sunny morning here at Steve’s Country. Today is Canada Day here! That means it’s Canada’s birthday and our country is 152 years old today! We are a young country compared to most countries of the world. Maybe I will do a post about this later. And of course today is Monday! So Happy Monday to everyone! I know, you don’t like Monday, but why is that? Monday is just a day, it can’t be good or bad in itself. It’s what we make it. So why do we choose to make it a bad day? Why not make it a good day instead? It’s just as easy to choose and say today will be a good day. And good days are so much more fun and enjoyable.
And if we make Monday a good day, then it will help to make the whole week a good week. Make the choice friends and choose a good day. Go into the day with a good and bright attitude. Put a smile on your face and help to make it a good day for the people around you as well. Spread some sunshine friends, make someone’s day bright! It really doesn’t take much to do that and it costs nothing. It’s been a while since we had one of our coffee times so come on over and relax for a while. We have coffee, tea and hot chocolate available for everyone and plenty to go around. And today we will head off to another park in the area.
This one is called Memorial Park and is not too far from where I live actually. But it is quite nice there and in the morning like this there is usually no one else around. There are lots of picnic tables to sit at here as well. It is a beautiful and peaceful little spot. This morning there are many birds around singing loudly. Mostly it is the little warblers. They are very small and colorful birds, for the most part, and most of them sing quite loudly. There is the oven bird singing now. It says Teacher, Teacher, Teacher, getting louder each time. Amazing that such a small bird can be so loud.
There are others of course, such as the Cape May warbler, Chestnut-sided warbler, black and white warbler. Plus there is a robin in that maple tree singing so nicely. Over in that shrub is a black throated green warbler. These birds are amazing to see up close with those brilliant colors.
Even here in this little park some wild flowers can be found. Smaller ones that no one pays attention to, otherwise they would have been picked until none existed, like so many wild flowers that used to be common here and are now rare. Don’t pick wild flowers folks. It will kill them and soon there will be no more to enjoy. Better to enjoy them where they are. And if you have a camera, take a picture of them. That way you leave the flowers for others to enjoy as well. A much better way to do things.
Well, guess that is all for today, I hope you enjoyed your coffee time and that you will join me again next week for our next coffee post. However, I will be posting throughout the week too so feel free to join me anytime right here. I hope you have a great week and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
