A Little Bear Stands Patiently (or not) Tapping his Little Bear Foot with Arms Crossed

Hullo bears & not-a-bears!

It's been super long (in little bear days) since I last got to post a blog. Sigh... We arrived back in Canada OK but I was a seriously jet-lagged little bear. I'd be wide awake at 3 am and totally exhausted at 3 pm! Anyhow - there was some more flying, then some driving and now a tonne of unpacking. Boxes, boxes everywhere... Mama says we don't have the weefee hooked up yet... huh?.... oh, apparently I spelled that wrong... the wyfy... anyhow... whatever. The internet thingie is not connected...  so I forced Mama to go to our favourite coffee shop this morning and do this posting.

By the way, going from 40C (104F) (super warm) to 16 C (60C) (temperate) feels like going to the arctic!! I asked Mama where my puffy coat was and my pants and boots and hat... and she just muttered something about - "a box somewhere - go look for it yourself"... Oh yeah... right... a gazillion boxes and I am just one little bear! I will work on talking some sense into her!

  1. Hello Sandy,

    Happy to read that you arrived at home safely!
    Hope you enjoy your new home when all the boxes are empty again, must be strange after so many months to stay at one place:-)!
    We had some very warm days here too, almost 36C, for the Netherlands that is very warm! We didn't do much, we stayed at home most of the time, keeping the little chickens company :-)! One of them,the red one (our favorite one) turned out to be a rooster :-(! He doesn't say kukelekuuuuuu(dutch for the sound he makes) to loud because he is very small so perhaps we can keep him if the neighbours don't start complaining... We hope he can stay, he is sooooo sweet and funny... We would miss him very much if he had to go. The lady that sold him to us told us that we could return him and exchange him for another chicken, but also said he would end up in the chickensoup at her place... After one month enjoying the company of this little fluffy one we can't say goodbye knowing he'd die... So a good tip from us, if you do have chickens, and you don't want a rooster, buy the chickens a little bit older so you are sure they are hens... We would buy older ones if we had to do it all over again, just to be sure we don't have to say goodbye... But we don't regret it, it is a lot of fun, it's ver calming to sit near the chickenrun and watch them do their chicken things :-)!

    1. Thanks Hammie! Wow... good advice on waiting a bit for some chicks! Once you get attached to them.... oh, it would be so hard to know that they would end up as chicken soup!

    1. Yup - all are well and OK! Just misplaced the camera for a bit and not having wifi/weefee is problematic!! Hoping things can get settled fairly quickly!
