Hello everyone and welcome to Steve’s Country! You will find this blog to be a bit different than most blogs out there. Steve’s Country is meant to be 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 weekly coffee chat, perhaps come along with me while I walk along the river path or through the forest. Come 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 is 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. Muffin also has her own page called Muffin’s Mewsings which you can find on my home page. She would be very happy to have you visit her page and read through her various posts. Unfortunately she doesn’t add to her page very often, but she also will write some posts on my blog to make up for it.
There are also many different birds that visit us here. I do 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 up to 7 months of the year. Plus we get a lot of snow and very cold weather. We also have short summers, but summer is a beautiful time of year here.
Though it sometimes sounds like we live in the country, we actually live in a town called Kenora which has a population of 15,000 people. However, this is a tourist destination so our summer population actually reaches around 40,000. Kenora is located on the north shore of beautiful Lake of the Woods 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. We really hope you will want to hang around here for awhile.
We hope that you have a wonderful day and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
