Looking for Spring

I went out for a walk along the Seine River (well, the still frozen Seine River), to see if I could find any signs of spring. There are lots of Canada Geese back here in Winnipeg, but I kind of suspect that they have teamed up with Mother Nature in this April Fools joke on… Continue reading Looking for Spring

A Walk with the Deer

I am back house/dog sitting with my big buddy Toby. It was time to go for a morning walk and we were greeted by some White-tailed Deer just outside the yard. They gracefully trotted away and we continued on to the river and walked along the edge.   A pair of Canada Geese were on the… Continue reading A Walk with the Deer

With… Continue reading Winter Trip to Riding Mountain National Park – Part 2

One day while reading the posts on the RMNP Facebook group, I noticed someone posting that she had a room in her house for rent.  Her home is located just outside the park and she has horses (both hers and horses that are being boarded).  I had recently received my lease renewal and was facing… Continue reading A Trip to Riding Mountain National Park in the Winter

Adventures in House/Dog Sitting

Time is just flying by too fast and I haven’t had time to sit down and write anything here in much too long.  This should have been posted about 3 weeks ago – but here it is.  🙂 Toby and I both managed to survive a few days together again when his family went away… Continue reading Adventures in House/Dog Sitting
