You could say that today’s activity went straight down hill but the engineer would argue that we also went up hill.
For today’s activity was to enjoy an outdoor activity. So we bundled up because at -21 (-29 windchill) that was necessary but it’s a lot of work with a little one!
Grampa got the GT slider out and sat on it with her. Instant tears that didn’t stop until the end. So then I took her for a shorter ride with the same results. She declined a third ride in favour of going to see the kitties.
A lovely little visit with the cats where Little A made appropriate sounds and tried to hug them. Then we decided we would do a quick walk to at least feel like all the clothes were worth the effort.She heard the cows but they were too far away to see. We played on the big rock for a few seconds and then we tromped back inside. It wasn’t a stellar win but we got some fresh air.
I’m know that once Little A is back home there will be a walk or a snow shoe around the big pond and around the trees and fences. The sunshine, blue skies and remaining frost make it so enticing that the temp doesn’t matter much to me.
Ps I wrote this while the wee one vehicle napped and we waited for momma. We had a fabulous time Christmas shopping, she’s a model little tyke who doesn’t complain and stands still when asked. It helped me be a better shopper and not be so impatient!

It has seemed like a bit of a stretch. For the past 15 or so months I’ve had a Continue reading “Darn Tough Again”
Now with a title like that you would think that this story about fishing. If you are regular blog follower you will know that going fishing isn’t really in my wheelhouse. In fact the last time I went fishing my children were little and it was right after my Cautionary tale.
But I digress and you must be wondering what “got away” on me. Continue reading “The one that got away”
About a kazillion years ago we said “I do” along with the words “for better or worse, in sickness and in health”. When you are 22 those words don’t have the same connotation that they carry as we age. Of course that is a generalization because many young couples face some tough times and ill health.
The odds though increase as we age. We have Continue reading “For Better or Worse”
This post started out a lot differently than it is going to end.
On Wednesday, or Tuesday perhaps as holidays distort the days of the week, I awoke to a Continue reading “The “Sign””
So here’s the thing. What do you do when you blow a commitment? Try and pick up the pieces or just like walk away? I had thought tonight was the night to catch up but it’s not. Other stuff called – time sensitive things like Continue reading “Here’s the Thing”
Construction season leaves little time for blogging or Canada Day and we didn’t really get a rain delay like I’d hoped. After yesterday’s marathon 14 hours we could have used a break. So, armed with new work gloves, a jacket and a swig of Continue reading “Canada Day 151”
