Coffee With Steve, Muffin And Friends #5.

Hello once again everyone! Welcome back to another fun time together with some coffee, or tea, hot chocolate, iced tea, herbal tea, we have something for everyone! At least I hope we do, and there is lots of baked goodies today as well, including a maple cake made especially for my birthday today by Muffin! Okay, she did have a little help, but she did sample it after it was baked to make sure it was just the way she wanted it to be. And she was very satisfied with the result too. Don’t worry, she didn’t touch the cake, I made a couple of cupcakes also for Muffin and Mr. Cat. Muffin was so amazingly happy that Mr. Cat could join us today as well.

Yes, it is my birthday today, though sometimes I hate to admit it! Generally I figure it’s a good time to run and hide and maybe it will go away. Doesn’t work though, I still get older anyway. Oh well, just one of those things, so why not celebrate a bit then? And a good spot is right here in a small park that we didn’t get a chance to visit last year, so I thought this would be a good time to check it out. It is right on the lake and has a nice small beach, it is really a great spot for kids to enjoy a nice swim. But adults can too, though the water might still be a bit cool, except right close to shore. Please just help yourself to more coffee and all these delicious treats that have been brought along today.

There are picnic tables here for us to use and a number of benches, though some seem to be leaning forward just a bit. And there is a nice grassy area to lie down and enjoy the sun, plus there are some benches over there in the shade to use as well. It is such beautiful scenery as we look out onto the lake. Those are all islands you see out there, of varying sizes. Just a small number of the more than 14,500 islands on this lake. It is really quite beautiful to go on a tour around those islands, and you won’t find many of them up closer this way that don’t have cottages on them.

There is a few lazy type clouds slowly floating about in the sky above us, but mostly the sky is blue and the sun shining so brightly. And over here along the edge of the park, a nice “maiden pink”, I really like these little flowers, they can survive and thrive in some tough areas. Oh, and over here in the shade is a “bunchberry” flower, they generally like more shaded areas but will sometimes grow in sunnier spots as well. And over here is a nice ripe wild strawberry! Looks like Muffin and Mr. Cat want me to have that one for my birthday. Mmm, it is so delicious! Thank you all so very much for coming today on my birthday, it has made this coffee time an extra special event!! I hope you all have a very wonderful day and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

    • Thank you very very much Simon and your wife and family too!! That is so very nice! Yes, it was a great surprise, I had to wake up Muffin this morning though. I fooled her and got up at 4 so she couldn’t bounce on my stomach to wake me up! She was so nice to me today, didn’t bite my foot at all, didn’t laugh at me. Helped me bake, oops, I helped her bake, we both helped eat!! It was a great day, got some nice pics, had a nice time down at the river, it was sunny nearly all day even though it was supposed to rain. I got to see 2 little fawns, about a week old, but didn’t get a pic, they ran off to quickly, but it was still such a thrill to see them! And all the birthday greetings from my WP friends! Thanks again Simon, Nisha and family!πŸ˜πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ΊπŸ˜ΊπŸ˜»πŸŽ‚πŸŽˆπŸŽˆπŸŽˆπŸŽˆπŸŽ‚πŸŽˆπŸŽˆπŸŽˆπŸŽ‚πŸŽˆπŸŽˆπŸŽ‚πŸŽˆπŸŽ‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜Ή

  6. Happy birthday again, Steve! Today, in addition to coffee, I will gladly taste the maple cake. I have never eaten it. I have never eaten even maple syrup, even if now we are starting to glimpse even in these parts…
    Have a great day!

    • Thank you so very much Rossana! Maple cake is so delicious! No maple syrup? Oh my, you really should try it if you can. Warmed up just a bit makes it so perfect on pancakes!
      It was a fabulous day and it turned out to be such a nice sunny day too!πŸ˜πŸ˜ΈπŸ˜»πŸŽˆπŸŽˆπŸŽ‚

        Maybe I’ll try to cook them someday, but not before I have found an excellent maple syrup!πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‹πŸ˜ƒ
