Hello everyone on this very beautiful Friday! And welcome back to another coffee time! Of course everyone is welcome to come and join us for a nice cup of coffee, tea, pink lemonade, or iced tea. We have a nice little park to meet at again today which is right on the shore of Rabbit Lake. It’s the opposite end of the lake from the park we were at earlier this summer. We did come here last year in the fall but it looks so different now in the summer. There are plenty of benches to sit on plus lots of grass if you like to sit on the grass instead. There is also plenty of shade and sunny areas for whichever you like best.
There is no beach at this little park but we do get plenty of wonderful scenery to enjoy. I see Sheree has brought lots of goodies for us to eat today and I brought along some blueberry cupcakes made with freshly picked wild blueberries. The berries are starting to get ripe now but it will be a while yet before it’s really good picking. There is a nice gazebo here for us to use as well and you can look out over the lake beautifully from there. Hi Ribana, so nice that you can join us today, and there is Rossana as well and Chrissy, thank you for coming out today! Hi Tiffany, nice to see you. Hi Buddy, Jim, Dusty and Simon, so nice to see all of you. Hi Jeanne and Correne! Did Teddy come along with you today?
Hi Eugenia, so glad you could come today. I see Muffin is here looking to see if you brought Callie with you. Thanks for coming out Nina and Mr. Cat. Now Muffin is having her own little coffee time with her friends. Plus I see they are all making the rounds and getting to know everyone. There isn’t a lot of flowers here, there is quite a bit of sumac however, plus a couple other flowers that I’m not familiar with. I see there is some yellow avens over here, a nice bright wildflower. And there is some nice “northern bush-honeysuckles” over here as well. Aww, too bad, that robin over there flew off before I had a chance to get a picture.
There’s a song sparrow in the sumac by the lake singing so beautifully. Anyone ready for more coffee? Just help yourself to the delicious baking that Sheree brought today. I see my blueberry cupcakes are gone already, but I didn’t have many available today, there’s just not enough blueberries that are ripe yet. This is actually a nice little park to just relax for an afternoon and enjoy the surroundings. I see Muffin is having a hard time, she wants to visit with everyone, but especially with her cat friends today. I see they are having a lot of fun playing fuzz ball over under the trees!
And it’s nice to see that there are absolutely no bugs here today, that’s a real plus for an enjoyable afternoon with friends. Plus the sky is staying a brilliant blue, there is just a light breeze and it is pleasantly warm today, perfect for spending some time outdoors. Speaking of time, I guess it is time to say good bye once more, until next week when we will visit…some place around here, not quite sure where just yet, so it will be a surprise for us. Until then, I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
