Closing Cottage For Winter

 IMG_3060

Mom & dad are getting ready to close the cottage for winter and as you can see, we do not have any  Royal Teak Furniture | Home and Patio Decor  for our outdoor furniture, we have to bring everything into the cottage for the winter.  So last week, we cleaned up the outdoor furniture , wipe them down from the summer use and all the dirt and grass as well as bugs that got stuck onto them and brought them all into the cottage for storage.

Mom had wanted to invest in teak furniture as they are supposed to be good for all kind of weather and you don’t have to worry about rain or the sun ray that might damage the outdoor furniture.  Mom said teak furniture are very expensive but you pay for what you get because teak furniture are made from the best kind of wood and they last up to 70 years.  When mom was a teenager, she said that only the very rich people can afford teak furniture and they have it at their pool as lounge furniture for suntanning and benches for picnics.  But now, one can get them as dining set and even Adirondacks like the ones we have above but made of teak wood.   The ones that we bought were handmade as well and they are made out of cedar wood but mom said she didn’t think that cedar wood are as good as teak.  Cedar wood is not rot resistant mom said but one can use water repellent like we did with ours but teak wood is much better.

So for next year, mom is going to invest in some Royal Teak Furniture, and mom said  the cottage will be mine when I grow up, I can always use them and so will mom’s grandchildren and great grandchildren.  I think this will be money wisely spent, like mom has taught me all my life.

Shopping At Frenchy’s

IMG_3117

Daddy and I had been doing our bear shopping at the Frenchy’s.  I figured instead of spending tons of money at Build A Bear for my bear’s clothes, I should get some baby’s clothes at Frenchy’s, washed them and dress up my bears.  Now isn’t that smart of me and really good with my money.  Mom and Dad are so proud of me that I came up with this idea.

I looked for my bear’s clothes on my own as you can see here because mom just don’t know how to go through the bins.  I think she just doesn’t like it but Dad searched for my Halloween costume because I want to be a minion but we didn’t have any luck with it.

I managed to find 3 pieces of clothing for my bear and it’s not even $10 – I think I only paid $7 and mom made dad give me back $5  – hahahah! I have the best mom !   I loved Frenchy’s shopping and I’m sure dad is willing to drive me to Frenchy’s whenever I want.

Thank you Auntie Sam for the balloons that you got Ian to get for me when I am sick , I really appreciate it and love it but you didn’t have to spend money on me.  I will get better really soon, I don’t like to be sick but I get to spend time with mom alone and at home, we didn’t go to work today !  I feel absolutely blessed with so many aunties from all over the world caring for me and sending me gifts.

Thank You For The Postcards

Thank you for the postcards , Auntie Alice.  You are so kind to think of me always , whether you are on vacation or for a business trips.  You send me gifts and postcards, I loved the postcards so much because I loved seeing the stamps and collecting them.  I can’t wait to frame up the postcards and put them at our cottage to show friends and family.

The top one is from Washington and the second on was when you had a layover and was in Russia.  Love it so much.  Thank you very much !  I am grateful for an Aunt like you.

Meet ButterScotch

2

This is butterscotch my pet bunny.  He is a male and he is half dwarf and half normal bunny because his father is a dwarf bunny and his mom is a normal size bunny.  We bought Butter scotch like 3 weeks ago and he is the best bunny ever.  He never poops all over the house but only in his cage and in the morning, he is outside in his bunny run and hutch that daddy build for him.

At night, he comes back into the house and sleeps inside because I don’t want him to freeze in the cold nor die because some bigger animal may scare him.  I did ask for a bunny but I didn’t think that mom and dad would get me one , so I was very excited when we found one in town.  We are currently looking for a real dwarf bunny to keep Butterscotch company.  Come meet my bunny if you are in town.

Bonding Time With Mummy

021

Mom and I went to a nail shop to get our nails done while waiting for daddy to chat with his business acquaintance in the city.  I don’t usually get my nails done because mummy said that children shouldn’t be painting their nails as our nails need the sunlight plus she didn’t want me to grow up too fast.  She said that making myself pretty can come later after school.

022

But once in a while, mom will treat me and surprise me but seriously, I don’t think wearing nail colors is such an ideal thing when one is young and in school.  But it was definitely loads of fun doing our nails together.

MineCraft Gift From Mummy’s Advertiser

001

Yup ! my mom gets all kind of freebies from her advertisers.  One of them knew that I was into Lego and Minecraft, so during a recent meeting in the city, they bought this for me.  Woohoo!  I’m so in love with it  Very happy indeed. !  Lucky for me, my mom’s advertisers love her so much , I get all kinds of freebies ! i’m the luckiest kid !

The Day I Had Double Desserts

023

Mum said , it’s lucky that I’m cute, else I wouldn’t be getting away with having 2 desserts.  We had gone to Rudders by the waterfront for supper (well , mom and her friends)  , I already had supper at home, coz’ supper was late for them.   So I get to order dessert , which was a chocolate mousse cake.

008

It was awesome but a lot of mousse for my liking , so I didn’t finish it but I wanted another dessert.

018

So mom ordered this moon mist ice cream for me and I finished it all.

Mom and her Japanese friend, who just got back from Japan.

My Mom Lets Me Try Everything At Least Once

005

As you all know my mom is very adventurous when it comes to food, so she lets me try everything at least once and if I liked it , I can have some more but everything in moderation.

006

So when Tim Hortons came out with this new summer chocolatey drink, mom went to get it for me during the weekend.  I loved it but as usual it was too much and too creamy for me to finish it.  Daddy helped me finish it.  I’m never deprived of anything from food to candies or drinks.  Mom said I’m a really lucky kid !

Father’s Day Present

Mother’s day is over and now to plan for Father’s day.  I gave mom hand-made bowl and a hand made wooden tag thing that she hangs on her bed now.  But for daddy, I have to think of something different because I can’t afford to buy electronic things for him , plus we do own kind of a electronic store of such.  So mummy suggested some speaker’s cover like the this  peavey impulse 1015 , not too expensive and definitely useable for my daddy’s music equipments such as his big speakers at the cottage. I can pay for it with my own money too , like I paid for my own ipod 4th generation ! woohoo!
