We had a wonderful Christmas. I am happy to say I am all better now no more cold and back in the saddle as the saying goes lol.

                             Photos of   our goofy kids lol




 Kids xmas 2010

Our kids  David, Leila  and James . We finally got a nice photo of them after they finished being the goofy funny kids that they are lol.

Everyone did well in the gift department and were all happy and surprised, I especially , Papa got me the lap top I wanted to get so that I can do my blogging outside in the summer on the patio .



This is Papa's gift from me. We are having this workshop built for him, for his woodworking  , he is going to be making some  changes to the style to the way Papa wants it to look.



                      All in all it was a great Christmas !

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. I was feeling up and down with the rotten cold but am feeling much better now, it lasted almost two weeks, regardless of the cold I had a great Christmas. I would like to thank all of you for your wonderful comments of getting better.

I will be posting more of our Christmas in a day or so once I have organized photos and what not for posting. We had our kids down for Christmas it was great fun, they are goofy funny characters  , always making us laugh. Any who I will post our Christmas soon.

Sorry I haven't posted the final chapter to my Christmas decorations.  We finished our Christmas shopping and Papa was not feeling well last week, he had a nasty sinus cold and now that he is much better I have been feeling yucky now, the start of a sore  throat achy body and have had a tuff time sleeping , just feeling yuk ! I am going to take a bit of a break  from Country Cove  to rest, get plenty of  fluids, soups, cups of tea and cuddle up with my blanket and see if I can get rid of this before Christmas day !  Hope you all have a warm  and happy week, if I am not back here before Christmas day,

                                   WE WISH YOU ALL

                                            A MERRY

As if we didn't get enough from the first storm that went from Sunday to Tuesday.The past two days the weather has been sunny and the temperature has been cold but bearable. Today it's back to snowing and windy, cloudy , gloomy , cold and just plain YUK !  A day to stay in with the fire place going, reading my book, blogging and just puttering around. The weekend weather isn't to be any better either, maybe I will finish our Christmas decorating this weekend and get the cards done and sent out or do some Christmas shopping who knows, all I know is Papa will be home with me as it is the weekend and that just makes it all the better!

                              Have a warm and wonderful weekend !

When I went out to fill the bird feeders this morning and put up the suet feeders I found it to be a  rather pleasant temperature  ,the sun was shining and there was no wind, it was rather calm and peaceful,  So after I did the feeders I decided to take photos of the birds as they play and get their food.

The sun is shining which its nice to see and it's melting some of the snow. For us in our town and village the snow falling has finally stopped, as for the city an hour away and the towns around us its still snowing , accidents galore and they are at a stand still , they have been for days ,over the past 4 days they have been hit pretty hard with the storm and have accumulated a total of 147 centimetres  of snow, that's 58 inches or 4.8 feet, WOW !  that's only one inch less then I am lol I would be buried in it lol I would defiantly need my flag to be seen lol and its all  heavy snow  . We got about 2 1/2 to 3 feet in 3 days. The wind is soo cold, with out the wind chill its minus 4 degrees ,with the wind chill  it makes it minus 8 degrees below Zero that is,that's  really, really cold lol  if not dressed properly frost bite in 3 minuets would develop ! So needless to say Miggy and I are in doors today where its nice and warm.

                                To all our blogger friends

                            Have a happy,safe and warm day !

Well people ! it's still snowing here in South Western Ontario. I guess this is were the saying watch what ya wish for comes in to play lol I wished for snow and  BOY OH BOY !! we are gettin it . It has been snowing since Sunday and it is to keep snowing on and off till the end of the week !  There are some roads closed and schools, all school buses in the area have been cancelled  again for the second day, bet the kids are lovin that lol  and we are having to dig our way out once again just to get out the door. Papa left early again for work, made it safely thank goodness and Miggy and I are just relaxing and enjoying the pretty winter scenery and watching the birds hoard on the seed in their feeders in the back yard, every now and then giving them selves a little shake to get the snow off  of their little backs, I can almost hear them saying BRRRR  as they shake them selves off. Harley is freaking out at the birds flying all around, she goes into a strange almost crying  fit at the sight of them as she sits high on her scratch post watching from the dry and warmth of the indoors . I don't let her go out side as to many cats around here become, well lets just say it ROAD KILL ! I would hate for that to happen. So everyone is just puttering around today . If the snow lets up a bit Miggy and I may go play in the snow !  Until next time, for those of you who are in the same snowy predicament as we are , have a safe and warm day !

We have just been pummelled with snow and winds now. It has been snowing since yesterday, its a winter wonderland,  so pretty as it sticks to everything and takes shape of each object . Papa had to leave earlier then usual this morning due to country roads aren't  ploughed right away, he made it safely , called me from work to put me at ease. 

I may go out later if it settles down and take more photos, that's if I can find a winter coat that fits , I am a little ok but a lot upset about it cause I have put on more weight then I ever thought I would, I have always had a weight problem and 4 years ago finally got it all under control and for the first time in my life felt good about myself . I was finally thin after most of my life  battling the bulge , then menopause hit , retiring came about due to really bad  IBS  and now I am right back to were I started with the struggle and depression all over again. I have gained 40 pounds in a year and a half , it wouldn't be so bad if I was taller but because I am short and what I call compact  its worse to me and the stupid thing is I cant eat a lot of foods, especially fast foods, junk foods , spicy foods, carbonated drinks or fruit juices due to my IBS , I dont understand it at all  , I have had my thyroids checked and all is good, had all other tests done and all came back good so why am I having this weight problem, yes I did used to be more active but then it was to the extreme before I moved back to the country. I try to take Miggy for a hour walk every day  and keep moving but it doesn't seem to help any more ! Just feeling sorry for myself today after I realized a coat that hung off of me is now to tight and yes I cried ! Well that's enough with the wowies  me bit now. I had my vent publically  and in print, embarrassed about it but hey no ones perfect !  Until next time. I will post some more winter wonderland photos  here but most will be on our K & E Photography blog.
