A little update

Another week without my camera. Bummer. It was in getting cleaned up a couple of weeks ago, and we took it back in on Monday. There are some stubborn spots that just won't go away. Of course, without a camera it always seems like there are scenes that should be captured. But, we'll just have to remember them instead.

Like on Remembrance Day. After we attended the service in a local town and returned home, John and G headed out in their hard hats and work boots and gloves with their chain saws to do some more work around the property. It turned out to be a great family day, with DIL and Miss M and me lugging wood while John and G cut. (well, Miss M didn't lug any wood...she just enjoyed herself as 7 year olds do) We cooped up the guineas, so the 3 dogs got the run of our 20 acres. And they loved every minute of it.

Four weeks and we'll see this guy...Mr J and his mom (John's daughter) and her boyfriend will be visiting us for a few days. It will be the first time we meet A's man, and should be a fun long weekend. The same day the three of them head back to Ontario, we will pick up this guy from the airport...
This will be Cody's first visit to our new Nova Scotia home. He'll be staying for 2 weeks. I asked him what he'd like to do while he's here. "Relax" is big on his list. To tell you the truth, I think he's looking forward to having someone do his cooking and cleaning for him...he has been out on his own for the past 3 years and I think he misses being looked after sometimes. He's busy in Toronto trying to break into acting. He had his first successful audition a few weeks ago, which landed him a role in a film. Yay! It's a non speaking role. And a non paying role. But still, it's a start. All dreams have to start somewhere, right?
