Whilst The Rain Was At Rest !


We had major down pores yesterday , so much that a small river was forming on the road flowing fast down the little hill of the road and deep puddles forming in the yard and fields !There was also high gusts of wind and boy it was cold as well !

Miggy was soo board and antsy as she always gets when its a rainy day and she cant go out much.

So as there was a small break in the rain this is what Miggy got up to !


                                                 Miggy  found a big stick !


                               By the time I saw her she had already had most of it chewed !


                                          Just need to get a better grip here !


                                                  She had claimed the stick with the paw !DSC_0014  Then I called out to her cause she had no idea I was watching and taking photos.

She laid down fast and tried to hide and gave me the   wasn't me ! look  .

She does this when she has been busted , the kind of thing where they are trying to look innocent but know they are guilty in doing something lol ! I don't mind her chewing sticks its just the sap or juices  that's in the birch tree sticks can make her sick  if she chews it to much ! 

        So I tell her ,  its ok Miggy good girl , time to come in now its starting to rain again !

                DSC_0016                       She's like I will just nap here Mum ok!  Guard my stick !   

        She did come in and it started to rain hard again for the rest of the day

   Today it has got that icy cold feeling in the air and it is  drizzling  wet snow, rain mix ! YUCKY !!! I don't depend on the weather man much anymore they are mostly wrong lol I use my farmers intuitions that my dad taught me ! The temp is below freezing and the air has that arctic smell and feel to it today .

  I think a day like today calls for a home made Shepherds Pie for supper  YUMMY !

                                                             Until next time Smile

A Little Bit Of Colour On A Cold day


It is windy and cold out today with the temp at 5°C  or 41°F  and the wind makes it feel like  minus 3 , the sun keeps popping in and out but the clouds are taking over , snow clouds that is , I have seen the odd snow flake here and there so it is on its way soon.

I had posted a few photos of my reddish Cactus  that blooms like crazy this time of year . Now I just realised that my white Cactus is now blooming. The flowers are soo dainty .

This is about all the colour we have left around here now as all is brown and bare .


                                         Click to enlarge if you please !



This young plant that I had separated and started from a basket mixed with other plants is doing well , it has lots of buds on it just waiting to burst !

                                            Until next time, hope your day is colourful and warm !

Vanilla Blueberry Cove Cake


Yesterday was an ikky  raining day and we even had a thunderstorm in the after noon . In the morning it held off long enough for Miggy and I to take our daily walk but then just after we made it in time before it poured. Today it is to be sunny and warm I think the weather people are on some wacky tobaccy as it is foggy and rainy right now this weather is soo out of whack every where.

Any who on to Papas sweets . I am not much of a baker but on the occasion I like to whip up something mainly for Papa as he has a sweet tooth and to be honest I don't need it , only goes to the hips and butt with me , don't get me wrong I wont deprive myself of the sweets just wont feast on them as he does lol
