Love what you do and eat pancakes. :)

Darling little Pip
It seems the older I get the more I love what I do. I've been caring for cats while people travel for over 20 years now. Sometimes I am very busy and have many homes in the day to visit and times like today where I can give extra attention to only two kitty-clients. They so appreciate it.

Well, today being St. Patrick's Day and me being half Irish, we decided to head out somewhere special for breakfast. I didn't want anything green, no siree. I've been craving good 'ol Canadian maple syrup so it was off to Temple's Sugar Shack for pancakes this morning. There is nothing like real maple syrup & big, fluffy pancakes.

The grounds were wet and it was too cold for a hike but I did get some photos of the gorgeous building that holds a restaurant and their shop.
Built with timberwood.
It really is spectacular.
Here's the waitress stoking the fire.

It certainly wasn't busy on a Monday morning; only retired folks dining like us. The inside of this restaurant is beautiful with a big roaring fire at one end. The pancakes were enormous and perfectly made with side orders of fresh fruit and home-made beans. Delicious coffee. Oh mamma!

Every table gets their own bottle of real maple syrup. Look at his face. He's like a kid with candy.
And for the meat-lovers there was lots of peameal bacon and home-made sausage.
I brought home a bag of Maple Granola for breakfasts this week. It's amazing.
We left there pretty full so we took Kane for a long walk which he enjoyed.

And this last photo taken in Temple's lovely washroom is for my blogging friend, Shelia from I only take bathroom shots for her.  hahaha!
                                                 "Hi dear Shelia. This one's for you"

hugs, Deb

  6. What a neat looking restaurant! We love pancakes... but that's a bit far to go for us.
    We'll have to enjoy them vicariously through you. ; )

  7. Now THAT looks ilke my kind of restaurant. Breakfast is my favorite meal! Love this! Happy St. Paddy's day a day late!

  8. What a beautiful place! And that food looks so delicious. I am a huge fan of pancakes. Top it off with pure maple syrup and I'm in heaven :)

  9. That looks like some amazing pancakes! I had some real Canadian maple syrup on some biscuits today with Tiger! YUM! Love the bathroom shot...only for our Shelia!

  10. Oh Gosh, I haven't had a delicious pancake in 4 months, at least. But I shan't break my diet despite the yummy looking maple syrup and the happy smile on your hubbys face!

  11. Look at Pip's dear little face. And those gorgeous stripes!
    What a breakfast! All sorts of goodies and the fruit cup looks yummy. The restaurant is beautiful.
    We have nothing like it here in Podunk. Mostly chains and the independents serve mostly supplied frozen foods.

  12. Eating pancakes is one of my fave things.

  13. Pip is such a cutie; lovely photo!

  14. I love pancakes:) I also think it is wonderful that you visit cats for people and give them love while their mom and dads are gone. Lucky kitty's.

  15. What a beautiful building! And the pancakes look great too.

    Love that bathroom shot. You look great!
