Miggy’s First Visit

 

To the doggie spa lol . Today we had to go in to the city to take Miggy for a day at the spa. We took her to Pet Smart . It was her very first time going to the spa as we usually gave her a bath , trimmed her fur ,clipped her claws and groomed her but this time she needed it done properly. Pet Smart is her favourite store she gets to see other dogs and sniff everything in the store and see all kinds of people she just loves that. She got the full treatment, Fur trimmed, nails trimmed and filed,teeth cleaned and bathed with an Oatmeal shampoo  to keep her fur shiny and her skin moisturized.  She was soo happy to go in the back with her beautician, then Papa and I went and did some shopping in the city as it took about 3 hours for her at the doggie spa being a pampered pooch.  Well they all just loved her she did really well sat good for them and never made a fuss except when they trimmed her fur around her face , that's cause she is soo nosey and she wants to see and sniff everything they are using also cause they are blocking her view from seeing stuff lol like other dogs and what not.

When we  picked her up  she was pumped sooo excited to see us and she looked great all cleaned up no more tats and raggedy scruffy dog and she smells wonderful and feels soo soft like she did when she was a pup , she had a ball there.

       She looks like a different dog and of course she had to roll  on the grass as soon as she got out of the van when we got home but at least now she doesn't drag all kinds of leaves and things in on her fur not like she did when she was all shaggy and scruffy ! She will always be our pretty girl shaggy or not !

                                        Until next time hope you all have great day !

Autumn

  work.2012523.13.flat,550x550,075,f.country-road                                                                         

They're coming down in showers,

The leaves all gold and red;

They're covering the little flowers,

And tucking them in bed.

They've spread a fairy carpet

All up and down the street;

And when we skip along to school,

They rustle beneath our feet.

Burning Bush & Burning Wood

 

The weather has been cold rainy and down right YUK !   I thought it was going to be a nice day yesterday as the morning looked promising all sunny and fresh. Miggy and I were able to get our walk in but after that it all fell a part , Rainy and gloomy . I decided to take photos of Papa’s Burning Bush the colour is soo pretty they call it a Burning Bush cause it is green all summer then come fall it changes to this vibrant red and almost looks like its on fire hence the name Burning Bush .

DSC_1116

                                                     It hasn't fully changed yet !

DSC_1121

DSC_1123

                                                           Such a vibrant red !

        It started to rain harder and harder as I was out taking these photos so I had to come in and it was chilly and damp so I decided to make a fire and take photos with my Macro lens of the flames dancing.

DSC_1101

      I set my camera on to continues shots , the flames actually dance around in each of these shots ! Each flame became different as it performed.

DSC_1102

                                        Click the pics to enlarge if you please !

DSC_1103

                                                 Each shot is slightly different !

DSC_1107

Have you ever just sat and watched the flames of a fire dance and change, its almost like they are performing in a Ballet.

                                              Until next time  hope you all have a great day.

A Bit Of A Tuff Day Yesterday

 

Yesterdays weather was rainy, windy and cold. Papa and I had to go to the Doctor's for our yearly check-up  not a thrill that lol. I had a tuff time sleeping Wed night and was up from 1am all day till about 10:30 last night for the life of me my body wouldn't go to sleep. I  don't sleep much some weeks and it is frustrating cause lack of sleep is not good makes your body and immune system week and  susceptible to all kinds of illness been there done that live with IBS and Chronic pain. I have tried every type of prescribed sleeping pills  even tranquilizers  in the past and none kept me asleep but this time I think we hit the nail on the head ! Got a brand new type that's better and has no side affects other then a yucky taste in the mouth in the morn.

So I spent most of yesterday wandering around like a zombie lol But today I am some what rested and  have  a bit more energy  !

                                        Some photos from the other day !

DSC_0922

             I was soo happy to get a photo of this pretty little bird a first for me !DSC_0921  Our fall birds are back and I am even seeing some new ones. I love photographing birds they have such funny characters and antics.

             Todays weather is gloomy with rain on and off but the weekends weather is to be sunny so I will continue with my gardens cleaning them out and Papa well he will be in his wood work shop finishing up some touches to projects.

                                Until next time , hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
