And Even More Snow

Now we really can't see out of the window. And Joash did not have school on Thursday either, so the poor guy is a bit out of sorts. And it has been too stormy and col for him to really enjoy being outside. This has been a really crazy week.

Last week Saturday, we had 700 pigs move into our pig barn. Another farmer on the Island had a roof cave in on one of his barns, so they needed a place for these pigs. We are grateful to help, but it does make for extra work. More animals that need to be fed since the automatic feeding system no longer works. More area to snow blow since we now have to have access to all of the barns. Overall it is good, but I have one tired and hardworking husband (and father-in-law.)

And while I always say I don't mind winter when I can watch it from inside my cozy house, I will admit I am going a little stir crazy. I am hoping to venture into the town tomorrow to stock up on groceries and I am looking forward to church on Sunday. I didn't get to church last week because Joash had a stomach bug.

Winter is here to stay for a while. There is no doubt about that.

L.M Montgomery's Beginning and End

My birthday present to myself this year was to join the Modern Mrs. Darcy Book Club. It is an online book club and I am so excited to be a part of it. I haven't been in book club in a long time, mostly because all of the invitations I get usually end with, "and at our meetings, we usually don't talk about the book very much, so it doesn't matter if you read it or not." What is the point of a book club if you are not actually going to talk about the book? So, anyway, I am excited to be a part of a community of people who read as much as I do and like to talk about what they read.
I was even more excited when I learned that the pick for November was going to be Emily of New Moon. And since I have lived on PEI for almost 7 years and had yet to visit L. M. Montgomery's Birthplace, I figured it was high time. So the kids and I hopped in the van this afternoon and drove through some lovely countryside to New London, PEI.

Coming Home from Michigan

Following the Truck Parade, we spent a bit of time at a park near Nick and Dawn's house. And then off to airport. 
We were nicely on time. Check-in went fine, but a little longer because of Gideon not being connected to our family. Security was a breeze and we were soon on our way and in Detroit. We easily found our gate in Detroit, had a 10 minute delay for boarding, but soon enough we were on the plane.
And that it when the bottom fell out. 
While on the plane, the pilots revived notice that Toronto was shut down due to weather. We waited about 20-30 minutes on the plane. They gave us snacks. Then they had us get off the plane and wait in the terminal. Every 30 minutes or so we would be updated that we were still delayed. And we were watching dark clouds and lightening roll into the area surround Detroit, too. Soon, the Detroit airport was shut down too. They brought out snacks and drinks a few different times, but finally around 10 pm (so over 5 hours of being delayed in the a…

A Farm Boy Already

I don't fully understand how this happens, but Gideon already loves the tractor. If he is in the kitchen or the living room and he hears the sound of the tractor, he crawls to the closest window and has a look outside. When he sees it, he often starts drumming on the window sill, so excited. He repeats a little "T" sound, like he is trying to say tractor. He hasn't actually gone for a ride in the tractor, yet. But I think he will be pretty excited to that some day soon.
