A Quiet Christmas, Suiting Up & Winters Canvas

 Hello all 

Hope everyone had a good Christmas , It was a quiet one but good , Summer and Harley enjoyed the treats and toys they got from Santa Paws . 

               Papa and I had a lovely Christmas dinner of a big ham with all the trimmings  and now we have lots of ham leftovers and I can make quick suppers for the rest of the week plus we still have a turkey to cook so lots of leftovers 😀

  Papa and I have been Suiting up to play in the snow with Summer , she is so much fun .

         Winter is so much more fun when you can get out in it stay warm  play and take photos of winters canvas .

Its been snowing on and off since Christmas eve which before it was raining and we didn't think we were going to get a white Christmas . The snow may not last long now either as we are to get a big warm up and lots of rain next week so its going to be a mucky mess in the yard and our puppers Summer will end up  being a mud monkey when she goes outside  lol .

                  Well this is about it for us here in our little neck of the Woods  lol !

          Hope all have a great week and a safe and Happy New Year , lets hope this year is better  and life can get back to some what normal  .  

                                                                    Until next time :

It Will Be A Quiet Christmas This Year

 I hope all are well and ready for Christmas . 

I know this year wont be the same for all of us as families cant get together this year but we can all just do our best and thanks to social media  we can all at least have face time and get creative with our family Christmas this year through that which can be fun.

We here at Woods Country Cove  are almost ready for our quiet Christmas , we have our indoor and outdoor decorations up and it looks very pretty and festive . Summer and Harley have their stockings up and ready for Santa paws .

 We have a total of three trees this year , two outside on the screened porch and one inside  , I  felt the need to do a little extra this year .

                                              Our snow has gone and it has been raining . 

 Above is our indoor tree and our Summer (aka) Summy is very interested in what this is all about as it is her first Christmas .

                                       And she is doing great at her Santa hat training 😃

I cant believe she is 7 months already and full of energy and spunk and keeps me on my toes lol . 

 It maybe a quiet Christmas for us with out family physically being here  but face time should be interesting and I will be cooking Papa and I a small turkey and ham this year with all the trimmings and have plenty of leftovers which Papa wont mind one bit for sandwiches and for me to make soups and stews   lol. We are lucky that  Papa  has been able to still go to work during these times and it will be nice to have him home over the holidays for two weeks as his company shuts down for the Christmas holidays . I am sure I can find plenty for him to do about the house lol .

                      Well that's about it for now for us , if I don't get a post out before Christmas  

                       We here at Woods Country Cove would like to wish you all 

                                                   a safe and Merry Christmas

                                                        Until next time .

Our Winter Wonderland

 Well hi there , hope all are well .

Welcome December 

Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow

We have had quite the wacky weather the past few days  as a storm rolled over us filled with all sorts ,first it was warm and rainy foggy and then temps dropped and sleet and snow then we had a clap or two of thunder then it settled for a bit then we woke up to our first real snow fall  and it is soo pretty , I do love the first good snow fall each time .

              I love taking photos of fresh fallen snow as it cradles every shape it falls on.

When Summy and I went out for her to do her business she was soo excited her being Husky she wanted to stay out and play in it and so did I but she is still recovering from her spaying so she has to be on leash and cant run about like a crazy dog in it just yet but soo she will be able to  probably by weeks end 😀

We finished our outside lights a few days before this storm hit as it was sunny and warm then , 

                         We toned down the lights at the front this year and it still looks pretty.

We decided to decorate our  newly build screened porch that  we built in the summer , it looks pretty and I love seeing the lights and trees light up at night  every time I look out our sliding door off of the kitchen .

I will be setting our indoor tree and decorations sometime this week. I cant wait to see the Christmas lights all lite up  with all the snow on them 😀.

Well that's about it for me . I hope all are well and staying safe .

                                                                 Until next time :

Having Fun With Our Summer

 Well hello there ! It seems it has been about a month since I posted last  😐 Papa , myself and Summer are all doing well . Summer is growing like a weed and keeps us very active and entertained lol . 

 Summer is a social butterfly to and just loves people and other doggies as lots of our neighbors and family  have dogs and they all get along well , our next door neighbors have a Doodle mix  named Tucker and he and Summer just love to play in the yard as Tucker sits at the gate between our properties and then asks his daddy to bring him over to play with Summer and they have a blast . 

We had our first real snow fall yesterday and  Summer being of  Husky she just loved it. Papa, myself and Summer were outside having fun in the snow.


       Her full name is Summer Time Little Wolf    , her nick names are Summy , Wolfy or Sum Sum and she responds well to all .

                   Papa built a snow man as Summer supervised and they also had fun with that,

Summer was watching the snowman's stick arms very carefully as she loves sticks and was biding her time when she could ...

                                                                        Steel them 😀

Summer  turned 6 months old  two weeks ago and is fully trained now and is a very smart and loyal girl . Summer is going in for her spaying tomorrow so we will have to make sure she takes it easy for a few days after , we have special pj's for her to wear  to keep her from getting to her incision and to keep it clean whilst it heals the cone of shame I think wont be good for her as she is rambunctiousness and it will  cause more of a problem as she will take out anything in her path lol  shes like a like a bull in a china shop with out it lol   , she will be going in early in the morning and home the same day late afternoon , its going to be a challenge to keep her  on a low active regime till its healed but these days the incisions are tiny and heal faster then they used to be . 

This will be Summers first Christmas and we are looking forward to it all and she like the our other pets past and present will be getting her own stocking for Santa Paws to fill with toys and treats .  We will putting up the decorations the first week of December  which I cant believe is just around the corner . 

Papa and I have been only going out for essentials and he still going to work other then that we have been enjoying our little home relaxing or doing some projects about the place and of course enjoying our face time with part of the  our family once a week who are not with in our social circle . I am so  grateful for our family , friends and the wonderful yard and outdoors with all our critters and birdies in these crazy times of 2020.

Well that's about it for me for now as Christmas closes in I hope to post again soon .

                               We hope all are well and stay safe .

Seems Like Blogging Has Taken A Backseat .

 Hello , hope all are well and enjoying this pretty fall season . 

Papa , myself and our new puppers Summer or Summy as we call her  have been busy and my blog has taken a back seat for now lol . Also this covid has kept us pretty much at bay from a lot of places and people even though we are pretty much homebodies . When we go grocery shoping Papa gets the list on his phone from me as we share it through our grocery app and when we go in to town  Summy and I go with him just for the trip to have a change of scenery  and stay in the car whilst he goes in and shops or get out and walk about the grass area  or sometimes Summy and I go into her fave pet store for a quick visit. Papa had a bad cough for about 4 weeks and he went to see our Dr and got covid tested  as well and thankfully he was negative , it turned out to be a bad yet common chest cold , he is now all better .

 This photo above is what our valley behind our house looks like this time of year , its so pretty and it gets very noisy with the sounds of all the migrating birds landing in the trees and field and our yard as we are on the migration path , its amazing to see and hear .


                         Talking about birds , all our fall and winter birds have returned now to .


                                                        Our Cardinals are with us all year .

The season has been up and down weather wise with lots of windy rainy days and the odd chilly days to but the past few days have been quite warm sunny and humid but I think we will be getting into the colder weather soon .

We have been cleaning up leaves at least twice a week now  and the trees are almost bare already .

Summy has been doing wonderful with her training and we have fun every day , and enjoy our long walks every morning . She is growing like a weed and is such a character .

She also shows a lot of  Border collie in her character and her training, movements  and ability to herd things ,   I have trained many breeds over the years  for myself and clients and I figure that she is Siberian  Husky ,  Border Collie cross , she is a love muffin and loves to cuddle and is very loyal to both Papa and myself  and for only 5 1/2 months old she is soo smart and listens well and aims to please 😊 . 

 Last post we were still building and finishing our patio screened porch ,well its all completed now and we love it .   Summy and I get to enjoy it during the day but when Papa gets home from work on the odd evening we have sat out in it and enjoyed it very much . The weekends have been quiet for us now as the kids have been staying in their own towns for now but thanks to modern technology we have been able to face time , video chat and so on with them . We do miss having them here though on the weekends .

Well that's about it for us for now  . Papa, Summy and I hope all stay safe and well .

                                                               Until next time
