Hello everyone and welcome to Steve’s Country! This is a place to come, sit back and relax for awhile. We have, perhaps, a slower pace here, like living in the country. No need to rush, worry, or feel like you have to leave right away. Just stop by, grab a cup of coffee and enjoy our daily coffee post, or any of the other posts throughout the week. Perhaps you would enjoy coming along with me while I walk along the river path or through the forest. Or stop by and meet all my different ‘wild’ friends, from little chipmunks and squirrels all the way up to deer and black bears.
This is also a place to enjoy some good old fashioned chuckles and humor. As my sub-title says, “for a smile as wide as a country sunrise”. We like to give you that smile to start your day or end your day, or any time in between. There are posts here that will bring that smile and sometimes a good hearty laugh too I hope. All designed to help relieve a little of that stress we all tend to experience from time to time.
The “we” referred to are my cat Muffin and myself. Muffin has a big role to play in Steve’s Country as you will find out after reading for a while. She is a major part of my mystery series which comes out 3 times a week and also writes her own posts each week as well. She likes to add the humor part to my blog.There are also many different birds that visit us here. I feed the birds which helps to attract them and they do help brighten up our very long, cold winters. We live up in northern Canada where winter can actually last for 6 to 7 months of the year. Plus we usually get a lot of snow and very cold weather most winters. We also have short summers, but summer is so beautiful it helps us forget those long winter days.
Though it sometimes sounds like we live in the country, we actually live in a town which has a population of 15,000 people. However, this is a tourist destination so our summer population actually reaches around 40,000. Our town is located on the shore of a lake which is more than 4,300 sq km in size and has over 14,500 islands.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read all about “us”. I hope you will enjoy your time here at Steve’s Country and that you would consider “following” us as well if you have not already done so. And hopefully you will want to hang around here for awhile, we would love to have you join us.
We hope that you have a wonderful day and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
