Taking It All One Day At Time

 My, my Its been a while , I didn't realize my last post was back in February  but then nothing has been going on really to blog about  either  thanks to this pandemic which I know we are all fed up with and have had enough of it all  . Just hope we all can get back to life soon .

Papa and I have been doing little odd jobs around the house as we can on the weekends as thankfully he still has been able to go to work  . 

Summer and I have been enjoying our walks and playtime/ training in the yard , she is growing so fast and is a remarkable girl, so smart , loyal, gentle  and very loving and she will be a year old  already next month . Summer loves to supervise Papa and I when we are out in the yard and she also loves to heard us when we are on the tractors lol she is full of energy and has quite the goofy character .

                                                                 Summer supervising  Papa


                                                    Summer loves to heard the tractor .

                                She also loves to sit by the camp fire and have quiet time .

Harley and Summer have become best friends now and follow each other around the house . Poor old Harley will be 14 soon .

Summers goofy side is rolling and then running about like a crazy dog and she loves to play fetch . She is mostly a quiet dog and doesn't bark unless you tell or ask her to but she can be very sassy and talkative .

 
Summer is our little jekyll and hyde with her ears and her two coloured eyes lol.

 

                                She really makes our days fun and keeps us active and busy .

All our spring flowers are have all bloomed  the trees and bushes are close to bursting , the weather is up and down all though we did have some summer like weather for over a week which was wonderful , all our spring birds have returned which is wonderful and we are keeping in touch with our kids via messaging , phone calls and video chats . Our eldest son and daughter in law David and Cindee are expecting their first child and our first grandchild in August and they have shared all they can with us through technology , it has been different but wonderful  they are having a boy and his name is Colton we are all soo excited and cant wait to meet him also we are hoping our daughter Leila who is marring her  dairy farmer Dan will be able to have their wedding in August as well  we are all hoping to be  vaccinated  by then fingers crossed and all get back to life but we are thankful for every second we can get  now  through modern technology.

         Well that's it for now from us here At Woods Country Cove  , we hope all are well and stay safe and hope we can all get back to being with and hugging  our families .

                                                                    Until till next time

Some Of This & That , Pets and Birds

 
Hello, I hope all are well .

 Welcome February   . The days have been getting longer which I like and the days and weeks are getting closer to spring which I really like lol  😃.

Papa , Summer and I have just been chugging along and taking each day as it comes  . We have kept in touch with our kids via messaging , face time or the odd long phone call . Things are going well with them all we just all miss seeing everyone and having them over for the weekends , hopefully we will be getting back to normal soon . This coming  August for us is going to busy what with the birth of our son and daughter in laws  first child and our  first grand baby and our daughters wedding plus anniversary's to  , exciting times to look froward to  .

In the mean time I have just been taking lots of photos and we have been enjoying our puppers Summer  (AKA) Summy and playing a lot out side and going for our daily walks  as we haven't had much of a winter here this year, very little snow but we have had many cold days  . Summy and her neighbour and  BF Tucker have a daily play date every late afternoon and they just have a blast together , its good for her to socialize and learn from her own kind as well as from us.

                     We got a big rope for them to play tug with and they just love it lol !


 Summy and our old  Harley are getting along well and actually hang out together from time to time . It took Harley a while to come to terms with this young bouncy whipper snapper and it took Summy time to realize that Harley isn't her personal chase play toy , but they figured it all out now and have become good friends . 

 As for our birdies the feeders have been super busy and that was a challenge for Summy not to chase the birds but she gets it now and can thankfully  sit out there and watch them with the odd reminder from Papa and I to leave them alone.  We being in a valley and on the migration path we get so many wonderful seasonal birds through out the year .

This time of year we get Juncos, 4 species of Sparrows , 3 species of Finch, Northern Cardinals , 3 species of Woodpeckers , 2 species of Nuthatch , Chickadees , Blue Jays, Northern Flickers, and Morning Doves and it gets noisy but I love it .

                                   We have hundreds of these little Juncos above this year .

  I can sit and watch them and take photos of them all for hours.

Each year we get more  male and female Northern Cardinals to I counted 7 males and 5 females and the males are starting to sing their spring mating songs already . 

Yup , Spring is in the air here  and I am counting it down and am looking forward to the arrival of our spring birds  , Robins , Song Sparrows , Red winged blackbirds and more and the change in lands appearance .

                                                       Until next time
