Morning Coffee At Steve’s Country #1.

Good morning to everyone! Time to grab a coffee, sit back and relax for a few minutes! As I mentioned yesterday, my Daily Pics has been replaced and the new name reflects better what this daily post is all about. Just a time to relax and talk a bit about our day. The pics will still be here each day too and we will meet all our outdoor friends as well. Today I just want to introduce some other changes coming up, or maybe it would be better to say, ‘new additions’ to our daily life here at Steve’s Country. Muffin will be back with her “Mewsings” which will be starting today, but I will let her talk about that later. “Art In Nature” will be here once more, though it was called Nature’s Art previously. This will be a weekly feature for the winter months and I may even keep it going year round this time.

A new feature will be “Our Outdoor Friends” where I will introduce, in slightly greater detail, the various critters that visit us around here. This one may only be twice a month, I’m not quite sure yet. Basically I will be having 2 posts each day, at least for the winter months. Normally I would begin new changes in January, but I decided to start them in December this year. There will be another post where we will look at antiques and collectables as well. I’m not sure what to call that post yet, but in the first couple we will look at old board games. Since Christmas is coming up, old games and toys just fit in quite nicely.

Our last mystery story of the year will be starting tomorrow and will continue to be on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I’m not quite sure if I will continue with these stories next year or not. What do you think? Feel free to let me know in the comments. “Steve’s Country Cabin Journal” will remain with us as a weekly feature. Well, for our pics today we have two of our winter visitors, a nice red male purple finch and the female purple finch. Thank you for joining me this morning, I hope you all have a wonderful day and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

      Yes indeed, Muffin and Mr. Cat are definitely the main characters and it was meant to be that way.😸😸 And they will continue to bring more fun to the stories!😹😹
