The first snow came last night.  I woke up to a blanket of snow that covered up all the leaves and weeds I still hadn’t finished gardening.  I went out for a short walk about to see what else I forgot in my fall cleanup.  There were small animal tracks all over the yard.   I wondered if they were dog, cat or fox.  When I got inside, I saw my buddy in the garden hunting for mice.

Fox hunting in the snow

I love all animals, so I did not know who to cheer for.  Every time his snout went into the snow I was hoping he would not come out with a mouse.  On the other hand, I am not to fond of having the mice move into my house for the winter.  I have heard that on PEI, the mice have been particularly bothersome this fall.

I love the first snow.  The kids get excited and want to build snowmen.  Everything looks so pretty with that little wet snow clinging to the branches.  I have heard the first snow ploughs going down the road, but I have yet to hear the first snowmobiles running on the trail beside the house.  That will come soon enough and it will really be winter.

Some people complain on long cold winters. I look at them as a time to relax from a busy summer.  We also take some time to make our business plans for next year.  We make a few changes to our Bed and Breakfast, make a few renovations, and look for ways to make our guests stay more enjoyable.

Also in the winter I have more time to blog.  So check back soon to see what I have been up to.

cheers

I can finally say I think Spring has sprung.  Late but it has arrived and we haven’t put a fire on in about 9 days now.

I’ve been buzzing around like I were looking for a favourite flower, from one thing to another.

I was roasting coffee –  then put it aside

rooster_tin

found a rooster and put him to roost.

corner_shelf_rooster

found a corner to finally put my shelf in that I built when in grade seven. Can’t believe my brother hung onto that and drove it all the way to Prince Edward Island to give it back to me, there it hangs with a few little items.

rooster_bell

This is my favourite, people ring the bell on the way out of the shop if they liked what they saw.

and this old coffee can sits on the window.  I purchased a few antique rusty old coffee cans but they are a save for later also, lol.

Lets see what else have I been up to…..

Ana would like to introduce her new baby brodder, she calls him Rory.

spinach_salad

I’ve been on a spinach salad kick lately.

Besides coming down with strep throat I’ve been pretty good

watching my peas and ques and getting busier as the days go on.

How about you? Has your spring sprung? Are you planting any spinach?

lol,

take care,

Cindy
