Rain, rain, go away Buddy Bacon wants to play! Enough already, I’m sick to death of this rain, day after day. I don’t mind the odd rainy day, great for the trees and flowers but a solid week is way to much! Mama’s been getting us out every day between showers and more than a few times we’ve been caught in another shower. We were happy at first because we knew it would get rid of the last of the ice but our joy soon dissipated when grey day after grey day it just kept coming. It didn’t stop Mama from selling a nice waterfront home though. Last Saturday she was on what she calls a whirlwind tour with out of province buyers showing waterfront across Southern New Brunswick. 11 Morrisdale Beach Road, priced at $499,900 won out and will have a new owner upon closing in May. It’s the perfect house for this young family with five children who can’t wait to moor their large boat right in front of their house on the St. John River. Even in the fog and rain they could easily see the beauty of our province and just can’t wait to move here!
Two more couples from out of province arrive this weekend looking for their dream homes in New Brunswick, one in the $350,000 to $450,000 price range and the other in the $800,000 to $950,000 range. Mama sure is hoping that the sun is going to shine! Nicholas and I have our paws crossed and hoping. If you are thinking of selling your home give Mama or Charlie a call today and they’ll not only help you determine the price but guide you through every step of the way providing marketing for your home second to none! Remember they not only list homes they sell them and have sold thousands of homes in Southern New Brunswick.
Nicholas and I are looking forward to getting out and about this weekend, hopefully with a blue sky and the sun shinning on our backs. Have a great weekend and if you see us, stop over to say hi. We love meeting new people and old friends.
Happy Easter! Hope you’re enjoying quality time this weekend with family and friends. Nicholas and I are laying low with Papa on Saturday while Mama and Charlie are touring Southern NB with lovely out of town clients from Ontario looking for waterfront. There’s nothing they enjoy more than showing out-of-towner’s our beautiful province and the many pluses of living in New Brunswick! Mama says sometimes she feels like she’s working for Tourism New Brunswick! Her and Charlie have lived here all their lives and know well the perks of the NB lifestyle! That’s why Mama calls it ‘Canada’s Best Kept Secret’!
Nicholas and I have our paws crossed hoping that the Easter Bunny finds our house this year. So fare we’ve had good luck and he’s always found us! Nicholas is looking for a new ball (of course) and I want some pigs ears (my very favourite thing!). We’re hoping the Easter Bunny brings Charlie a new puppy! Charlie would love that. He loves dogs so much and is looking for just that one special one!
We’ll be enjoying our Easter dinner on Sunday with our dear Auntie Blue and Uncle Clinton. All the stops are being pulled out with shrimp, baked ham, potato scallop and all the fixin’s. Auntie Blue may be creating a well-loved old recipe of orange cake from our Nanny Wiggins recipe book for desert which Mama hasn’t tasted in 20 years! Nicholas and I are really looking forward to leftovers! Paws crossed and hoping! Our mouths are watering just thinking about it! Papa is looking forward to a chocolate bunny.
No open houses this weekend, it being Easter. Mama and Charlie always respect this special holiday. Hope you have a relaxing Easter filled with peace and love.
Did you know that Coldwell Banker found homes for over 10,000 dogs across Canada and the USA in the past two years! Nicholas and I are so happy to work with a franchise that loves us four-legged friends so much! Through our ‘Homes For Dogs Project’ these lucky rescue dogs found their forever home! (Let me tell ya, I L O V E my forever home!)
Check out our video ‘CB Homes For Dogs 2018’ which was awarded #1 real estate video of 2018. Experience the love of a rescue dog! At Coldwell Banker Mama and Charlie know that it’s more than a house that makes a home; it’s the family and that includes your pet!!! Turn up your volume and click below to view our award winning Home For Dogs Video. We just love Mr. Cooper!!! If this guy and his happy story doesn’t put a smile on your face nothing will!
Everyone is excited to see the snow finally go!!! The days have been so nice and warm with such vivid blue skies. We saw our first crocus today!!! Mama was so excited.
Brace yourselves because it’s supposed to pour on Saturday which should get rid of the last of the ice. If it’s a rain day then Nicholas and I will have to play inside. Mama has some good games for us like ‘Hide the Treat’. It’s a great game; we go in her office and close the door while she hides these little tiny treats all over the first floor of the house. Then we come out and go looking. I do really well at it because I have the much larger nose and it seems better tracking skills but Nicholas is not to be outshone. I’d say we’re about 60/40 for me.
I think we’re in for a quiet weekend. Mama has buyers in on Sunday looking at waterfront homes so she’ll be a busy bee. We’ll stay home with Papa and probably watch some sports on TV. Have a good weekend and hope to see you around really soon.

I know, I know, the cold weather is back and it’s back in a big way. Mama, Papa and Nicholas are freezing. I’d lend them my big fur coat if I could but I can tell you with these temperatures hovering around freezing I’m very comfortable myself. I just get tired of listening to them bellyaching about it. Spring is just around the corner, I promise you.
