Hello everyone and welcome to Coffee With Steve and Muffin, a slight variation of our coffee series which you probably noticed we haven’t been doing lately. I have been waiting for warmer weather to arrive so we could once again go outside and enjoy our coffee so much better. I just love having coffee outdoors, don’t you? It takes on a whole different flavor and adds to the enjoyment! And having a nice park by a lake makes it even better. But, best of all is having our coffee time with all of you, so please join us in this new series each week, Muffin and I would love to have you here with us.
Normally this will be on Tuesdays, but I’m a bit behind in things this week so we’re here today instead. And we are here on a beautiful sunny day at a nice park on Rabbit Lake. We were here last year as well, but we have some new pics to share this year, though a couple might overlap pics we saw last year, I hope you won’t mind that. There are many picnic tables for us to use here, plus a nice large grass area if you don’t mind sitting down on a blanket with your coffee and enjoy the beautiful scenery here at this little lake just on the edge of town. Muffin is here to join us, or rather, join you and I’m sure she will get around to as many of you as possible and join in with your conversations.
She really does like to talk a lot and she loves attention from you ladies. She really doesn’t like guys a lot so you might not want to try touching her, good way to get scratched. Seriously. I have lots of coffee, tea, and hot chocolate for everyone, plus decaf coffee and tea as well. And surprisingly I baked some cookies for us today, both chocolate chip and butterscotch chip (which is actually a favorite of mine). And I think Sheree is planning on bringing some of her delicious baking for us as well. Anyone else that would like to bring something along to eat, please do, we usually have a good turnout for our coffee times.
Hi Renee, I see Muffin has already welcomed you. And here is Jeanne, so nice of you to join us today. Hi Eugenia and Virginia, grab some coffee and get yourself a nice place to sit. Hi Rossana and Alessia, good to see you both. Hi Jim and Richard, how’s things in your part of the world? Not only is this a nice park, but it’s also the location for our local rowing club. This is a great rowing lake, it’s long and narrow and the waves are never much of a problem here. I see a pair of crows are out looking for food to feed their young ones. Plus a robin is over there closer to the lake. And there’s a grackle on some rocks along that little drainage ditch, which only has water in it when we happen to get a lot of rain.
And look there in the lake right near the shore, there is a pair of mallard ducks. It seems every small lake or pond around here will have mallards on them. I don’t see many wildflowers here, unless we count the dandelions, there is certainly a lot of them. Time seems to go so fast with our coffee times, already it is time to say good bye. I hope you have had a good time today and don’t forget to join us again next week. Have a wonderful week and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
