More Snow Pictures...

Are you sick of these yet? I am getting pretty close. If my kids didn't like to play in the snow so much, I would be really over winter already. We had another 25 cm of snow yesterday and some high winds again. It is rather interesting to see how the drifts form because the wind seems to be from a different direction each time.
I liked the look of this drift behind the BBQ.
 The tractor and snowblower have certainly been getting a workout this last while.


Reina was surprised by the height of this drift. All of our cars in the building by this drift.
 Wilbert's parents are currently in Uganda visiting Jander and Tiffany. We have been checking on their house every day and I thought I better include some picture of what their house looks like.


 The road is pretty one lane right now, as there was still a lot of blowing and drifting today. We are pretty impressed with our plow drivers though. I still have no reason to go to town. Though I may need to head in tomorrow to pick up some parts that Wilbert needs.

We also have a small flock of mallard ducks that have been hanging around our farm. They found the corn silage and decided that it was a great source of food. While Wilbert now covers up the end of the bag better, they still hang out too sneak a bite while he is loading up the silage to feed. But they were struggling to find shelter yesterday in the storm. Here they are hiding out near a tree.
Well today as nice and tomorrow is supposed to be nice too. Saturday we have a little system coming they say. It could bring snow and rain, so that will be rather interesting. Tomorrows big job is get the snow out of the valley on the barn roof. Time to move it before the snow gets heavier.

Planning for 2018

So about this time of the year last year, I was feeling a bit overwhelmed and finally came to the conclusion that I was not keeping very good track of things and my life. So, I bought and planner and I love it. But, in my search for a planner, I kept thinking there has to be something that can not only help me plan well, but also help and encourage me spiritually. Then, last year Jamie Ivey highlighted Anchored Press in her 2016 Gift Giving Guide. And I knew I was going to be getting a planner from Anchored Press for 2018.
And it has arrived! And I love it!


I am so excited to start using this planner in the new year. I hope that it will help encourage me in all areas of my life.

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…
