Hello everyone! Well, here we are once again with another coffee time. It’s been a while since it has just been too cold to have our usual coffee time’s outside. So today we will be at my favorite coffee shop, Tim Horton’s. Though people around here just usually call it Tim’s. They have great coffee, from regular to iced. Plus they have good tea, herbal tea and hot chocolate. Plus various juices to choose from. And…donuts of all kinds, cookies, muffins and a full range of food choices for meals too. My favorite is the Canadian maple donut. They are soooooo good! Filled with maple cream, topped with maple. Fantastic. Except I can’t eat it anymore. Because of this crazy diet I need to be on now. Sigh.
Took me a few tries to get pics without many people so you can see the coffee shop better. And around here people often don’t like getting their picture taken by strangers. And they don’t come much stranger than me! Oh well. They have nice friendly staff working here too which always makes any place brighter. They even have complimentary newspapers for people to read. Hard to believe they even make those things anymore. I mean, why? Oh well.
But it’s a nice place to sit and chat when the weather is not good. And that’s the way it will be for the next few months. Over the next few weeks I will be giving your a tour of our town and decided to start right here. Plus this coffee shop is close to where I live, which is also nice. But I will be showing some of the sights around town so you can see what it’s like around here, both summer and winter. A little different than showing the nature side of things all the time.
I was sitting thinking the other day. Yes, I do think. Not often though. Gives me a headache. Anyway, back to thinking…now what was it? Oh right, winter. I was thinking about winter. Which is easy to do this time of year. Mostly I try to forget it. But I thought, there are good points about winter that we shouldn’t forget. So I thought about it. There must be some good points, I said to myself. Just couldn’t think of any. But there must be. After all, people live up here where winter occupies half the year. There must be reasons for that.
To be quite honest, I just can’t figure why people would want to live here. I mean, there are people who move here from warm parts of the world. Why? Leave a nice warm climate and move to one of the coldest places on earth? That makes sense? Maybe it’s just me. Like I said, I’m strange. I mean, going outside when the temp is -40 and the wind is blowing so that any exposed skin can freeze in less than 30 seconds, just doesn’t sound like fun to me. Oh well.
Yes, kind of different today. Happens. But I’ll do better next time. Happy Monday to everyone and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
