A Bit Of This & That


I don't really have all that much to post about , as we move along through this month so far . Saturday  afternoon Miggs went to the groomer and got the pampered works , now she is all clean and trimmed up instead of stinky and shaggy like she was in this photo  but I am sure she will smell like a dog again soon enough lol !

Whilst Miggs was at the groomers  in town  , Papa and I went to do some shopping at Costco in the city 40 min away  to stock up again on things . We don't go shopping this late in the day especially on a Saturday afternoon , it was nuts , lots of shoppers but it all went smoothly and now we are all stocked up again for another few months  .

Then Sunday Papa spent the morning cleaning up the rest of the leaves and  had a campfire going , love the smell of a camp fire in the fall air . Our trees are now bare and so is our lawn thank goodness  as we thought the leaves falling and cleaning them up seemed like it would never end lol ! Our property is surrounded by a cedar hedge like a fence if you will and so it helps to keep other leaves from the forest  , the field  or anyone else's property  blowing into our yard so once they are all gone that is that till next fall . 

  I spotted this spider web hanging from  our patio porch this evening as the sun was setting   , no spider was to be seen  though , maybe he is in cognito waiting  , we still have bugs about as it hasn't been cold enough .

The weekend weather was nice and sunny and not to bad temp wise either , the sky's were clear and blue and the sun shining .  The weather this week is to be nice and mild  with lots of sunshine and the odd rainy day  defiantly not our typical November weather that's for sure but I will take it  .The night sky last night was clear  all though the winds picked up and it was chilly . I saw the moon was bright in the night sky  as I looked out the window after supper   and took a photo or two of the moon, my it gets dark so early now .

This moon is  called a super moon . But on  (Nov. 14) that's tonight  at 6:15 pm. EST, the moon will arrive at its closest point to the Earth  a distance of 221,524 miles (356,508 kilometers) away. This distance, which is measured from the center of the Earth to the center of the moon, is within 85 miles (137 km) of the moon's closest possible approach to Earth it will be the closest it has been since Jan. 26, 1948 . Fascinating isn't it ?!   I do love the moon ! Hope the sky's are clear tonight for us mooners lol !

                                                                                            Until next time .

Hi Elaine. Wasn't the moon gorgeous last night? Its another sunny mild day here too. Wednesday it's supposed to rain at 15C which is really nice. I keep wondering when we'll get snow but I'm rather enjoying this weather. Have a lovely week.

I was out in my pj's this morning taking photos of the moon. Hope it is just as clear tonight. The last time it was this close was just before the date I was born :)

I bet it was fun picking Miggs up from the groomer, all sweet smelling and handsome. I'm hoping to see the moon tonight too. We had rain coming in last night and barely could see the moon through the trees

Miggs is looking quite stoic. We had clear skies last night. I'll have to have a peek out to see what it's like now.

I saw the moon last night too ... so brilliant! Tonight I just stepped out to see it again at 7:50 but it's not quite as clear as last night. Looks very mysterious tonight with the hazy clouds around it :)
