Some may not like Friday the 13th but around here we love it! This was always Mama’s father’s lucky day contrary to what most believe. All good things happened to him on this day and it seems to follow suit with Mama too. She looks forward to Friday the 13th and today was no exception. This morning she listed a beautiful waterfront home on Belleisle Bay with main floor master, large open concept kitchen/great room, stunning gardens and sandy beach on a half acre lot. Stay posted for more details as it hits the MLS this coming week!
Well we had buttoned down the hatches for the big storm last weekend and we sure were glad we had prepared. Nicholas and I helped Mama and Papa put away everything off our back deck and stone patio out front. It was really scary!!! The wind was coming straight at our front door with that norwester and let me tell you we were not one bit impressed going out in that storm after supper Saturday to do our business. Mama felt sorry for us as we wandered down across the lawn with our fur practically backwards with the high wind pushing against it. Wasn’t too long and we were back in the shelter of our cosy house. We had all just finished our supper which Mama made early just in case we lost power and POW the power goes out at 6:45 pm. It’s getting dark so much earlier now that it was completely black out by eight o’clock. Sure did seem strange to us but Mama and Papa reassured us that everything was okay. We were well prepared for the storm with food in the house that needed no cooking and lots of fresh water. Our Uncle Tom (Mama’s brother) who lives close by in Quispamsis keeps a close eye on us when the power goes out. Mama said we were the first ones out so we’d probably be the first ones on and she was right. Our power came back on at 9:30 Sunday morning! Just in time for breakfast! We all went for a drive in my red truck and were heartbroken to see the big century trees down in King Square! Nicholas and I just couldn’t believe it. We were hanging out the back window and I’m sure our jaws were dropping! Mama was sooooo upset. She said it takes a hundred years or more to grow trees like that! At our place we have one big beach tree leaning over. We don’t want to cut it down as we’d lose some privacy in our yard so our friend Ben Scholten came by to have a look and he’s going to stand it up with anchors and pulleys so we won’t have to cut it! Always great to know an expert in the business!!! If you need help with any real estate needs call Mama or Charlie, the local experts in the real estate business. They’re always available with a smile and some helpful advice ready for the offering!
Well on to clean up this weekend around the yard, probably what you’re doing too. Have a good one and we’ll talk soon.
