Hello everyone and welcome back to our coffee time series! I hope everyone is enjoying their Monday, and, we have something exciting to add to our Monday! It’s International Springcat Day today! I decided it needed a name, so that’s it. This follows the time worn tradition of Groundhog Day, but as I mentioned earlier, Muffin said she can forecast better than a rodent. So we’ll see if she’s right or not. So at precisely 9 am (we don’t get any sunshine before that), Muffin checked whether she could see her shadow or not.
We were hoping for 10 cheers but Muffin didn’t quite make it, but that’s okay, the fun went on anyway. If she sees her shadow it means 6 more weeks of winter, no shadow means an early spring. So what was it? She didn’t see her shadow! An early spring is on the way! To be quite honest, for us up here in the north, either way it works good for us. An early spring means around the end of March, so seeing her shadow would have been better as that would be mid March. But it’s still great! If she’s right. We’ll see.
Muffin and I are so happy to see everyone show up for coffee today, it’s always a bright spot in our week. And we do have more than just coffee, there’s tea, herbal tea and hot chocolate too. Even milk tea is available. Hi Renee, I see you showed up first today, and there’s Lydia right behind you. Hi Keziah, nice to see you here as well. Just grab and chair while I get you something to drink. I see Ribana has just arrived too, how are you today? Coffee is ready for everyone. Hi Pene, good to see you again. Hi Ross, nice that you could come today. Hi Tiffany, nice to see you back again too.
I thought I would just kind of give everyone a general look around my apartment today and next time we will take a look at some specific items again. I see Muffin is making the rounds and saying hello to everyone. I thought so, she’s back up on Renee’s lap today.
The first thing you will likely see coming into my place, a collection of old woodenware and a pic of someone’s relative from the 1870s.
A couple cabinets holding a mixed up batch of old things. The blue cabinet had 8 layers of paint on it which I stripped off and repainted. The original color was blue, though a lighter blue than what I chose. Anyone for more coffee? Hmm, I see Muffin has switched and is now with Tiffany. Guess she wants to split up her time with everyone.
Shelves of various old stuff on my desk. Time always seems to go by so fast doesn’t it? But I certainly enjoyed our coffee time again today, I hope you did as well! Thank you all so much for stopping by today. Until next time, have a great week and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
