What the Heck?

What the heck have we been doing? There has not been a single blog post in over 3 months so what have we been doing you ask?
What the heck is what we think! Snow and then more snow and then more snow. We’ve been spending the winter keeping fit with snow removal by shovel. Who needs a gym when you can move snow around for free! Yes – we do understand that a tractor with a blower or a plow would be easier but when did we ever do easier! We are looking for a front mount snow blower for the Kaboda – which should have a garage spot by next fall when all the siding wood is on the house.

AS YOU CAN SEE THE TRACTOR ISN’T EXACTLY ACCESSIBLE – NEITHER IS THE COMPOST BIN

AS YOU CAN SEE WE DID CALL IN THE CALVARY – WELL ACTUALLY SPENCER AND A BOBCAT. BUT THAT WAS JUST ONCE. WE ALSO HAD THE RM COME DO THE FREE RUN UP THE ROAD WITH THEIR SNOW PLOW AND IT LOOKS LIKE WE WILL HAVE TO GET THEM TO COME OUT A SECOND TIME.

OUR STANDARDS OF SHOVELING HAVE DECREASED AS THE WINTER HAS GONE ON – NOW WE JUST SHOVEL WIDE ENOUGH FOR THE VEHICLE AND PRAY FOR NO MORE WIND/SNOW HITS !

AS YOU CAN SEE I TRY TO REMEMBER THAT THERE IS A PRETTY SIDE TO SNOW – SEEN MORE OFTEN WHEN THE SUN IS SHINING AND THE WIND ISN’T BLOWING.
There is a new internet game that loads of people are playing and talking about – 4 pictures that all point towards the same word. You are supplied with the letters (and a few extras I think) and the number of letters in the word and then you need to guess it. I saw one that had A, E, I, O (all made out of weird materials) and the answer was vowels (which I guessed in like 1 second). This entry could obviously be SNOW but perhaps it could also be WORK or WHITE or ENDLESS!

PS I hope to be back sooner than usual with a blog about some actual progress we are trying to make!

    Glad I live in Sask’s hot spot and not your farm!
    Although even Maple Creek is getting quite a dump of snow tonight too.

    Hey Bernie,
    Thanks for the blog update! Somehow I missed the last posting so I just read it now. Crazy about Denise! I am going to call her and see how things are going!
    Sent some pictures of the armoire to Noah, Spence’s son, and he is going to see if he can help us fix it up and make it a little more sturdy. Still have to get together soon. Hockey is just about done and I am looking forward to the end!

    Hi – I am usually ‘exhausted’ by your energy expenditure on the house so this was a different kind of empathy on exhaustion!!! I just don’t know where you guys find the time and energy to do all you do. Work – for money to live, and work – for pleasure, well, on the house, and you also trawl the antique dealers etc. and find time to play. You must live in a different world – it must have more hours in a day, days in a week, weeks in a year, …. where you live. I want some of it! But maybe not – I think it’s a bit too late for us now and definitely too much snow and too much hard work!!!! Pam

    Snow, snow and more snow. Sometimes it seems like it will be here forever. The top of the horse paddock fence is now at their knees. So far no one has thought to venture out. Your road looks nice all cleared. Hope it lasts a while!
