bits and bobs: A random assortment of things; small remaining pieces and things
Well, the good news is, the doggie life jacket works! The bad news is, Lucy has a new favorite thing… diving for buoys.
Have you ever seen the movie The Englishman Who Went Up a Hill But Came Down a Mountain?
I’m thinking about doing a documentary about The Kayaker That Didn’t Want Her Island To Wash Away So She Shored It Up. I just need to find a few extras to help transport large rocks.
The seals are back! Yesterday we spotted 4 seals, and a porpoise! We invited them all to pie and ice cream but we didn’t have any takers.
After scrolling through photos I need to delete on my phone, I found this gem.
A few houses ago I told the HH I could hear a mouse scurrying around upstairs. He brushed it off saying I was imagining things. The next morning I noticed there were teeny tiny bites taken out of the Mary Jane’s I had set out in a little bowl on the side table.
But clearly, I was right.
Side note: Do they even still make Mary Janes?
In other candy news… What’s up with Red Vines lately? This is the third package I’ve opened this year that’s looked like this. This time around there was only ONE undamaged Red Vine.
My new favorite listing in Port Issac. I LOVE the kitchen. Especially the grooves in the countertops and the farmhouse sink. And check out that little cookbook shelf! And the AGA stove. And the plate rack and… and… and.
Tuesday, let’s do this!
Have a good one,
In all your spare time 😉 I think you should write a letter to RedVines letting them know about their product! You never know…maybe they’ll mail you some free stuff!
Nancy Sadewater says
Yes, Mavis! You should send them a letter or an email about their quality control. You never know you may receive a package of them in return.
I would move into that house tomorrow! I love the whole thing!

Lucy, Lucy, Lucy! What a character! She cracks me up. The look on that dogs face. Wish I knew what she was thinking. Thank goodness she had on a life jacket.
Yes that kitchen is awesome. I might add it to my future kitchen remodel file. A girl can dream!
Have a great Tuesday )
Lucy looks very determined in that picture! I think a book about her adventures would be wonderful!
Offers in excess of $2.2M. Well, it is nice!
Mavis Butterfield says
I love the phrase offers in excess of it has a very hopeful aspect to it. 🙂
It’s a lovely kitchen, but I need a sink with a window.
Julie P says
My sink is off to the side so that we could have big doors where the kitchen sink used to be on to our patio area. I don’t spend that much time at the sink. So I’m glad we had the doors. But the only snag we have hit is that occasionally someone head butts the cupboard over the sink which is very slim but people aren’t spacially aware of it so clunk!
Not liking that house $4 million (US) worth. I do like the bathrooms and I already did an English kitchen at my house (green cabinets, cherry countertops, lots of vintage cream and green enamel, etc.). The weather is Port Issac is pretty nasty in the winter.

You can still get Mary Janes at the old fashioned type candy stores.
At least your mouse had good taste!
Our dogs always went out on the boat with us, but we had a hard time keeping one of them from chasing Canada Geese. The darned geese would go to the middle of the lake and keep swimming. The dog would have drowned once he got too tired. I think that was the goose’s intent. I went out in the boat and fished him out before that happened
Yes, they still make Mary Jane candies. We love them! Our adorable local candy shop carries them. https://www.littlepopcornstore.com/
Similarly, if you can find Squirrel Nut Zippers (yes, the real name!) they are also yummy!
Lucy is a true “Salty Dog” LoL!!
Julie P says
I love the house but the kitchen isn’t over big for that type of house and if I won the lottery it would be on my wish list the price is probably about right for a property of that type where it is situated. The winter weather would probably be exciting rather than nasty. There is little frost and snow along the coasts of Cornwall and Devon and the summers can be idyllic sadly the tourists turn up in droves so the autumn, winter and spring months are the best for beach walking and town visiting.
I wanted the grooves/dish drain when I remodeled our kitchen. Cost prohibitive…no one around here had the tools to do it.
