Our newest editions to the family are almost ready for new homes! I wanna keep the grey tabby, he is so sweet..oh heck, they all are! If I could keep them all I would but since we currently have 9 felines in the house, some of them have to go, lol.
Wow! I forgot how long it's been since I last posted! Summer is halfway over with and it's been a busy one around here. I have had a hard time getting on my computer with the kids home, every time I go on it, they get bickering or fighting or just plain want me for something,lol. No rest for the wicked... Wish I could say we have been on vacation but we haven't :( We want to take the kids camping or something since it's been six yrs since we have been anywhere, it's just hard with hubby working long hours and on the weekend too. This past Saturday, we got our oldest daughter to babysit for the night and hubby and I got a hotel room in a nearby town, had dinner and enjoyed some much needed quality time for ourselves. It was so nice!
Anyhow, my oldest son graduated from gr.8 in June and is on his way to high school in the fall, I can't believe the time has gone so fast, he was just not quite 2 when we moved out here. My oldest daughter is going into gr. 12, she still doesn't live at home, but is doing very well, working hard and amazed me by making up 8 credits that she missed over the years, all in one semester! She is now on track for graduating next year, I am so proud of her!! Rhys is going into gr6,Brynn is going into gr4 and Kaedyn, my baby, is entering gr1. I will now have every day to myself, whatever will I do?? lol.
So, we have been busy with our huge veggie garden, despite having little rain, things are growing not too badly, but we really do need the rain, not just a sprinkle but at least a day or 2 of good solid rain! We are actually supposed to get a storm today, who knows what it will bring, hopefully no tornadoes but with the heat and humidity anything is possible.
On the July 1 rst Canada weekend, hubby and I went on a road trip , the kids were camping with grandma and grandpa :) It was a nice drive and we stopped in at various antique shops and yard sales. Of course I have been to a few auctions as well ( hubby is cursing me for bringing home more things than we have room for lol) Anyhow, the one yardsale we went to, I spied a lovely antique wood tub stand with the wringer and gavalnized steel tubs and a wood handled washer thingy, forgot what it's called. To my surprise, my wonderful hubby bought it for me! He spied some old gas cans ( I think I finally got him smitten with antiques so these are what he is starting to collect). I also found another antique tub stand on kijiji for a really good price so I had to have it! along with various crocks ,whipple trees,washboards etc. My porch is getting filled lol.
Tomorrow I am planning on making cucumber bread with some of the overflowing cucumbers our garden has provided. I have never made it before so wish me luck.
Hope all of my followers are having a fantastic summer! Stay cool if you can :)
I am a stay at home mom of 5 children and I am married to my wonderful husband James for almost 9 years. We live on a 75 acre farm in the rolling hills of Kendal, Ontario which has been in my husband's family since the mid 1880's. Our house is over 150 yrs old and I love it! We have 3 dogs, 3 cats, 1 horse,1 hamster, and numerous chickens and ducks. Life is never dull around here to say the least. I love antiques and the simpler way of life and I have a interest in Prim Decor which is slowly but surely taking over my home. I also dabble in candle making. soap making and prim crafts but I have alot to learn.
My motto is ;
I BELIEVE, MIRACLES DO HAPPEN!, since our 9 yr old son was born with a rare genetic disorder called Hurlers Syndrome/ MPS1 in which he received a bone marrow transplant at the age of 11 months old to slow down the progression of his disease... during this time he was so ill that he was not expected to recover and come home with us... BUT HE DID!! And against all odds, he is still with us today :) So Believe That Miracles Can Happen!!
