Its Looking A Lot Like Christmas .


With our out door Christmas lights and our indoor little bits here and there with our Charlie brown Christmas tree it is looking like Christmas at Woods Country Cove  all though I prefer to have a little snow for our outside Christmas light photos .

                    The two little wood Christmas trees on either side are what Papa made years ago in his wood shop ,

I just love this street lamp light it looks so nice in our kitchen by our woodstove and makes it feel like an old fashioned Christmas in there every year .

I did the little bits here and there about the house today and Papa did all the outside a few days ago . All though it looks pretty I think snow would help a bit more .

Papa loves his new kaleidoscope's he got that glitter and flicker coloured lights on the house as well as the traditional Christmas lights ,  the out side is all decked out now so all we need is some snow , not a lot just enough to cover the grass. The past few Christmas’s it has been green and we haven't had snow till January . The weather people keep saying we will be getting a typical Canadian winter soon well if that were true we would be buried in it long before now lol ! Oh well I guess parts of our Ontario especially the southwestern part  you cant say is the great white north anymore  just the true northern part of our Ontario that still is as they get more snow and earlier then we do down here  . It has been a mix of sun and cloud mostly cloud and windy and chilly  here with the odd rain fall . Papa and I went to a nice restaurant in town Sunday morning for brunch  , we go with his parents as they live up the street and a few neighbors in our valley village  that have become good friends over the years .  We try to go to different places or at least keep to the best ones  . This year we went to a place in town called Mills Tales . It was a lovely place  , a converted old saw mill with all the original big beautiful wood beams in the ceiling's  and  lovely  wood walls with old wagon wheels done up as over head  chandler's  and as you enter in , there is a room that has all kinds of old vintage things in it like hand made quilts and the history of the area and the mill   it was lovely and the food was YUMMY and lots of it a buffet of everything  , I like buffets lol  service was good to and friendly folk   and a good price  to  , definitely going back to this place in the near future . Then we went to Papa’s parents for a little Christmas get together with family ,  all in all it was a good weekend .

  Well that's about it for me. I just checked the weather and see we might get some snow later this week  , other then that not much going on here , birdies and critters are feasting and eating us out of house and home but that's ok we love having them around . Miggs and Harley are .. well being Miggs and Harley and Papa is coming along well with his crocheting his afghan .

                                                                                    Until next time .

Last Days Of November


WOW ! where do the months and days go . The weather has been mild here and still no snow on the ground for us  . The only moisture we have had is rain  and today was a lovely mild 13C or 55F  sunny with cloud and the winds are gently blowing , a perfect day for being outside and that is exactly where I was  , enjoying this late fall with all of its colour and our birdies feasting and playing in the cedar hedges  and at the feeders . 

I find the fields this time of year to quite pretty with all of its golds off whites , browns , silvers , greys and the odd pop of red from berries .

     I find each season has its wonders and its own  eye candy to capture ! The land is never really boring looking if you look hard enough .

The birdies were playing hide and go seek with me today as they  peeked out at me with my camera from the safety of  the  cedars . It was fun to watch and capture them all though they are fast little things and flap here and there and bob and weave to try and confuse me lol !

We had a fun time playing peekaboo . Then I went out the front and took photos of Papa’s Christmas creations he put up over the weekend ! He has the new kaleidoscopes on the front lawn that shine like a disco ball they remind me of with red , green , blue and white  Christmas colours on the front of the house to . Now there will be a challenge for me taking night shots of it all light up  .
