Hello everyone on this nice, for us at least, late autumn day. I didn’t think it would be possible but since we have this nice sunny day I thought we could have one more outdoor coffee time. I completely forgot about this nice little memorial park on the shore of Rabbit Lake. I actually took these pictures a couple weeks ago when the autumn colors were still so nice. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to walk around much that day, but I got some nice pictures anyway.
There is a nice little boardwalk through the park, leading to the gazebo and back again. There is a couple benches to use, plus a picnic table. But the best place to sit is in the gazebo itself which is right on the shore of the lake. There is a couple benches to use in here as well. A beautiful sunny spot to sit and enjoy our coffee while looking out at all the wonderful scenery around us.
So, how many of you would like coffee this morning? There is cream and sugar here for you as well. Plus I have regular tea, mint tea, milk tea and hot chocolate available for those who don’t like coffee. I also brought some blueberry cupcakes that I made fresh for today. And I know Sheree will also bring something along. She always brings some delicious baking with her to share with all of us.
The view of the lake is just fabulous from here. Just look at the yellows and golds among the green of the pine and spruce. There isn’t much bird life around now, but I do see a couple of juncos digging away among the leaves looking for any seeds they can find, or even little insects. And I see a couple daisies still blooming and some bright little dandelions.
Anyone ready for some more coffee? There you go, lots for everyone. And some blueberry cupcakes? Maybe I should have made some more. But here’s Sheree with some more goodies for us. Just on time too, thanks so much Sheree! Her baking is much better than mine, that’s for sure. And yes, Sheree, I remembered, you like your coffee strong and black. Simon is enjoying his coffee I see, he’s waving, must want some more. Lots of milk tea also for some of you. See Jessica? I actually remembered. My dad always enjoyed it as well. Not me, I want coffee!
Just sitting, chatting, out here by the lake, is so nice. That lovely fresh autumn air and the wonderful autumn scent provided by the leaves that have fallen to the ground. Just beautiful indeed. Our coffee times will now be a bit different as we move indoors and talk about different things. I will open my apartment for coffee and show everyone my various collections. I did a bit of that in early spring, but there is much more to see. A long winter ahead talking about very little wildlife, and lots of snow! So we need to do other things as well, I don’t want to lose all of you over the winter.
Well, thank you for joining me again today, I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
