A Bit Of This & That & Our Happy 10th Blogversary


Hope all are doing well in these crazy times . Hope all mums had a wonderful Mothers day yesterday as well even though some of us who have adult children that live away from us and  couldn't hug our kids or  even see them in person I hope they called / texted or faced time with you .
 Our eldest son and his  fiancé made the two hour trip down on Saturday to sit out in the driveway and drop off a bouquet of lovely flowers for me and we were able to have a 2meter or 6 foot chat that was lovely and quit the surprise as we had no idea they were coming down and our youngest son called me that evening and we also had a lovely chat , also Papa bought me a lovely Mums yellow daisy plant  so that was an awesome mothers day for me .

 Papa and I are doing well here , he has been back to work now for over a week so that part of our weekly routine is normal ,our weather has been less than desirable for this time of year that's for sure , it is May right?! seems more like March these few days . We have had snow flying but thankfully haven't had any accumulation but the winds and air have been usually cold .  Our poor spring/summer birds that have returned have the look of heading back down south and saying the heck with this crud  , I thinking I'm with you on that guys lol .

So strange to see the snow fly this time of year  and hearing our neighbors cutting their grass at the same time lol !
Little bits of snow flakes falling in this quick pic but after I took it the snow fell harder and faster but again thankfully it never accumulated just melted on contact FEW! My spring flowers have taken a beating with this weather but some remain vigilant and bloom on .

We are very much missing our Miggy , and are  beginning to come to terms with the fact that she has crossed the rainbow bridge and are able to look back  at the thousands of photos we have of her and  remember all the good times we had , she will forever be loved and remembered and will forever be in our hearts .

Yesterday was Woods Country Cove 10th  blogversary  , yup 10 years ago I sat down at my computer and figured out how and what to do for a blog and it has been a wonderful 10 years and thousands of photos and posts later  thanks to all of you who have followed and  or commented , there has been lots of friends made through blogging over the years, lots of ups and downs to and tons of support  and fun seeing and enjoying others neck of the woods and learning different things from one another .  I will try to keep going in blog land as much as I can but I am finding Facebook and Instagram are taking over the blogging world more now as it is all accessible and easier from other devises . I do have a Facebook page and am on it these days more than here and can use my smart phone to do posts and pics  on my Facebook page , I don't have this blog linked to Facebook like others do or use Instagram  as I like to keep this blog  separate from those platforms .

Well I think I have babbled on long enough here lol , I am looking forward to getting back out into the yard and gardens and get going again with my daily walks  by mid week as the weather gets back to how it is supposed to be from then on  , thank goodness..
                                              Until next time, Stay safe , We will get through this !

Happy 10th Blogversary! Like you, I find it hard to get a post together these days. I too am on facebook and also instagram where my daughter posts many pictures and videos of the grandchildren. Oh how we miss having them over and hugging and snuggling them. I hope and pray this will all be over soon! This cold weather gets to me. Sounds like you had a very nice Mother's Day. Take care and stay well.

HAPPY 10TH BLOG ANNIVERSARY Well done for keeping it going for so long. Sorry to hear your weather is very mixed. Since lockdown our weather in N.Ireland has been very good and unusually sunny so I am not complaining, Lovely flowers. Stay safe and have a good week.

Hello Elaine...
Yes...blogging taking a back seat for sure...but I still manage to get a few out!
Missing my grandkids a LOT...and my kids🖤... we have done the social distancing visits as well...but hugs are better!
Do you think you will get another dog?
We are not allowed to go to our cottage...😢... still haven’t recovered from all the storm damage this past 6 months...
Take care...
Linda :o)

Hello Elaine, It's been quite awhile since my last blog visit and Happy 10th Blogversary to you!
My condolences on Miggs recent passing, which I was saddened to read about.

Not sure how it happened but our blog has been going a long time as well. Every time I consider starting a new one, I manage to put that though aside. Maybe one day just a photo blog is possible.

Glad to know you are doing well despite the current world situation, as we are here in Nashua, NH. Your gardens are looking nice. Sometimes we miss our yard and former home but not the work projects so much.

Glad you had a nice Mother's Day visit with family.
