Saturday, February 2, 2013


Once again, it is February 2 and time for our little groundhog to forecast whether we will have an early spring.  He has a mixed review for Canada  but I'm hoping that he is right about spring being around the corner!

We have another sign that spring is here................we have a bear cub and mom and poppa bears, too!!!
Our neighbour has seen them but we haven't yet, although they knocked down our compost bin, which is not a small thing to do.  They pushed down the fence to get into our yard and carried away our locked bin for collecting compost from the house.  I love animals so I hope that they don't get too aggressive because I would hate to have them moved or, even worse, put down!!!  We have lived here for 15 years and heard about sightings but not a glimpse have we seen.  I guess when you live near a forest that is one of the perks.

I am walking perfectly normal now and I am enjoying it immensely.  Soon, I plan to volunteer at a SPCA so that I can take care of my dog addiction!!  I would love to get a small dog but Doug and the cats say no, so I am outnumbered.

I have finally cleaned out my studio so that I can seriously start this is my one main resolution for 2013.  I will send some photos of my latest petitpoint in the next post.................... today is my birthday so I am relaxing and enjoying it, starting with breakfast in bed!!!

Many hugs to all my loyal followers and to my new followers...I really appreciate your support!!!

Happy Birthday Sandi!!!

I am so very happy to hear that you out of pain and walking. That is just the best birthday present ever I am sure.

As for the bears... We had black bears at our cabin in the north woods. They never bothered us but they were very good at getting onto anything that was left outside that smelled tasty.

I look forward to seeing your next post. XXXXXXXXXX

Watch out for the Bears... if you have bird feeders, stop filling them! The bears will take them and keep coming back for more! I look forward to seeing your newest petit point!
