Today may be the first day of spring and the sun is shining with bright blue sky but it sure doesn’t feel like it with cold northern winds whistling through my fur. You know I love the cold but this cutting wind lately has been keeping me indoors more than usual. I’m usually out in the mornings for at least two hours with Mama calling and calling me to come in but she doesn’t need to coax me lately. Twenty minutes tops and I’m back in the door!
We had our entrance all decked up for St. Patrick’s Day this past week with extra bright green roping through the wreath, big green bow and a huge shamrock in the center. Mama has Irish on both sides with Delaney on her mother’s side and Regan on her fathers. Nicholas and I donned our green scarves and he hung his shamrock flag at the end of the walkway. “May your kilt be short enough to dance a jig and long enough to cover your lucky charms!”. If it warms up this weekend we’ll help Mama get the ladder out and start transforming the big wreath for spring but we know she won’t tempt it in this cold. Papa always chips in as well, passing up the flowers as Mama wires them in, placing them just so.
Congratulation to our sweet little friend Winnie Luck on the sale of her gorgeous home at 55 Shornecliff Drive, Quispamsis. I was looking forward to trying out that great swimming pool this summer, promising to throw Winnie a few swimming lessons but that wouldn’t happen now with the sale pending. Lucky Winnie Luck is moving on to a waterfront home! Nicholas and I will be stopping by to visit your new beach Winnie and have a dip in the river. We supervised Mama as she posted your SOLD sign earlier this week.
Congratulations as well to Mama and Papa’s dear friends, Ed and Becky Betts whose lovely ranch-style home at 49 Farrell Lane closed this past Monday at North Lake, NB to out of province buyers. Nicholas and I had a great visit to this property this past summer and a refreshing swim in the crystal clear lake. Becky and Ed are on to their new home in Fredericton and we wish them well.
Newer homes in subdivisions, one to three years old are hotter than hot lately with the market nothing short of a feeding frenzy! Mamas had three bidding wars in the last week working through offers until the wee hours. Very exciting with the adrenaline running high! Nothing Mama enjoys more than a challanging bidding war!
Tip of the week; Have you seen the new Hartz Dura Play Balls in no other than BACON scented? Nicholas got a bright pink one and I got the blue. They are recommended for smaller dogs than us but we just love them. They are not only extra squishy but they also squeak!!! I highly recommend them for hours of fun!!!
Hope you’re adjusting to the time change by now and that you have a good week. TG we’re back in the yellow phase!!! Remember to stay vigilant, wear your mask and continue to social distance! Together we’re going to beat this thing!
