What A Busy Week


WOW ! busy is right for us here at the Cove . Papa worked Monday and Tuesday and he was swamped those two days  , he has been off on a mini vacation since and all we have been doing is cutting wood stacking branches in the wagon and taking them to the back 40 . I did a lot of moving big logs  and stacking them up along the hedge then I made a sign to put at the bottom of the drive way  that said  FREE WOOD  with in an hour we had one neighbor  stop and claim his batch of wood and will pick it up in a day or so  then the next day we had another  neighbor stop by and say he will take the rest of it so all the wood that we moved to the cedars has been claimed and will be hauled off soon  , I have already stashed my wood in the drying wood sheds behind our tool and potting sheds  lol .

Ok so now we are both sore and tired from all that work with the tree lol  and Papa has also been helping his parents move from next door to up the street as I dog sit their dog Shadow here and there .

Papa took a short break from the tree and re built his shop stoop with better wood and stained it to protect it better from the weather , then he got his paints and painted the back garden picket fence bird houses , I will be doing the ones around the big old tree that we have been dealing with for the past week lol !

Papa had his Lathe on kijiji for sale and sold it  as he doesn't use it for any of his wood projects and gave it a test run yesterday to make sure all is working well and then that evening the people came to pick it up .

This weekend is a long weekend for us here in Canada , it is our Canada Day July 1st long weekend and all celebrate our beautiful country this weekend with all kinds of festivities like  Fireworks, parades, barbecues, concerts, carnivals, fairs and picnics or just chilling in the yard over a BBQ with family and friends .

Canada Day  is the national day of Canada, a federal statutory holiday celebrating the anniversary of the July 1, 1867, enactment of the Constitution Act, 1867 (then called the British North America Act, 1867), which united three colonies into a single country called Canada.

                                          So we here at Woods Country Cove wish all our fellow Canadians  a safe and


It was raining here this morning which is much needed and  has now cleared up and  is to be sunny for rest of the day . Papa and I are taking a break and puttering about today .

                                                                                            Until next time .

Such a LOT of hard work, Elaine, and hope you both can take some time off to relax on your long Canada Day weekend. It's also a long holiday weekend here in the U.S.

Good to hear all the wood is cleared up. Hope had a lovely long weekend. We've been working at getting a lot of brush and branches chipped up.
