Finally our spring/summer wreath at our front door is finished!  Nicholas and I kept Mama company over a four day stretch as she hand-wired each bloom in place!  What a tedious job!!!  Nicholas wasn’t much of a help as he kept bugging her to play ball and kept running through the flowers she had set out on the patio in colour-coordinated groups.  That’s our Nicholas, we didn’t nick-name him Dennis the Menace for nothing!  Even though decorating the wreath is painstakingly slow, it sure is pretty when it’s done!  All who visit our house just love it!  At eight feet in diameter it really makes a statement.  Mama says, “Anything worth doing is worth doing well” and I say, “Go big or go home!”

  Our summer wreath is done!!!

Even though it’s a challenge selling real estate amid Covid-19 Mama, Charlie, Nicholas and I are still working hard!  Our listing at 1 Malabeam Lane, Rothesay closed yesterday.  Offered at $548,000 MLS#NB028280.  Nicholas and I stopped by to check out this waterfront dream.  Here you see us sitting on the new sea wall/berm which is working well!

1Malabeam Lane, Rothesay is SOLD!

We are also excited to bring the buyer to 138 Anchorage Ave MLS#NB032655 offered at $524,900.  Congratulations to our buyers, wishing you many years of happy memories in your new home!  So nice to work with you!

We brought the buyers to 138 Anchorage Ave.

So it’s been a busy week and now we’re hoping to catch some rays as the weather warms and we can see we’re heading towards summer.  The Covid-19 restrictions are starting to get slacker but please keep vigilant and take it a step at a time.  New Brunswick has done so very well and we do want to back-slide!!!  Have a great weekend and we hope to see you soon!

How blessed are we to live in New Brunswick during Covid-19?  When we see the news and look around the world at how cities and countries are suffering with huge outbreaks and death tolls.  It’s beyond scary.  New Brunswick and Canada as a whole have been following the regulations closely and doing our best to flatten the curve.  Nicholas and I have been practicing our self-isolation and social distancing just going out once a day for our daily walk.  We rarely see anyone on the trails these days and when we have come across anyone especially with a dog, Mama and Papa hold us by the collar at a distance until they pass because we can’t be chummy right now with our four-legged friends either.  We sure will be happy when this is all over!!!  Better days have to be coming.  We got some nice pictures yesterday.  Here’s one Mama took of me and of Nicholas.  She says we’re the prettiest boys in Rothesay but she could be prejudice!

I have to add that we are getting very sick of TV (especially CNN which Papa watches) and if we see one more movie we’re going to scream!  Mama and Papa have lots of good movies but enough is enough.  The only thing keeping us sane is our walks in the fresh air with the birds singing as we stroll though the woodland trails.

Mama and Charlie are both working from home.  TG for computers and smart phones.  They are shocked at the number of inquiries from out of town buyers!  I guess word is out that New Brunswick is THE place to live to be safe during the outbreak.  With our low case numbers, zero deaths and our population really paying close attention and following all the rules, we’re close to having this cracked!  We won’t be surprised if New Brunswick isn’t one of the first places to reopen safely.

Have a good weekend and be sure to Stay In and Stay Safe!  As I say to Nicholas we’ve come this far, it won’t be too much longer!

As we continue on with social distancing and self-isolation it proves to be an Easter for the history books.  Easter is such a special time of year when we’re all used to being with family celebrating over a beautiful Easter feast.  (let me tell you as a Newfoundland dog I really look forward to the feast!).  It’s when Spring is in the air, days are getting warmer with the promise of summer is just around the corner and its puts some extra spring in our steps.  But not this year.   We all have to stay focused with our social distancing even during Easter.  Nicholas and I have been very careful through this Covid-19 to not only keep away from other people but other furry friends as well.  Mama says that if someone pets us they can leave germs on our fur that could rub off with the next rub.  So as we’re out walking and meet up with furry friends we cross the street to keep at least a 2m 6 ft distance or more.  Mama and Papa, speak, smile, wave and keep moving.  It’s soooo important right now as we push through to flatten the curve.  Even when we’re at the grocery store we can’t let people come over to the truck to rub us and say hello as they use to.  I keep explaining to Nicholas who is so very social that this won’t last forever and he’s got to stay strong and stick to the rules.  The good news is that CBC News says the Easter Bunny is immune to the virus!!!  We saw it on the TV ourselves and are so happy about it.  We’ve tried to be good boys all year (for the most part) and hope to find and Easter basket Easter morning.  Nicholas wants to hope he gets up early because if he doesn’t I can’t promise what will be left!  Mama says I need to learn better to share with my brother.  Bend an ear Easter Bunny, I’m working on it.

Remember social distancing, 6 ft apart!

It’s a challenge for Mama and Charlie right now selling real estate.  They have several closings in April they are dealing with and have had plenty of interest from buyers from out of province who feel that New Brunswick is a very desirable place to live now more than ever.  These people plan to visit our province to view homes just as soon as the travel ban and border closures are lifted.  No one knows when that will be but one thing we know for sure; when it comes to a world-wide crisis, New Brunswick is THE place to live!  We are very proud of how our premier and prime minister have been looking after the best interests of the people during these unprecedented times.  We’re also proud of fellow New Brunswicker’s who are respecting the safety procedures in place which is keeping us ahead of the curve.  Special thanks to all the front line workers from medical personal, to delivery, groceries, police, firemen, paramedics, etc.  God bless you all and all that you do every day to help us keep some semblance of normal life and keep us safe.  To those across Canada and around the world who have lost loved ones we send our sincere condolences for your loss.  Our hearts are with you.

We wish you a peaceful Easter weekend during these challenging times and remember stay in and stay safe!  It’s your life, it’s the life of your family and friends, it’s important!

Talk soon,
