Education Week vs. Holidays

I was describing my mis-adventures with the email “sending” feature to my friend Kathy on the phone. I mentioned that I was chalking off these last two weeks as holidays, since I wasn’t getting much work done, just studying and
researching and trying to solve that problem. Originally I was only going to take off the time when my niece and her daughter were here as holidays.

Water in the Potato Pit

Remember our purple potatoes? Well, we had a heavy-duty rain on the weekend,
and when Dad checked his pit in the floor of the storage room on Monday
morning, he found a couple of inches of water!

Purple Potatoes

Dad’s brought in our purple potato crop. It took him two days last week, and yesterday.
He is feeling quite pleased with this year’s potatoes. Last year he only got one 5-gallon pail full,. . .

Just in Time for Joyce

We got back on Sunday evening from a wonderful weekend away to Alberta. (You’ll find my photo story of Kevin and Jena’s wedding in the Ruthes Roses section). I’d meant to drop off my films as we came through Saskatoon, but the Superstore was closed already, so we made another trip into the city (just […]

Off to a Wedding

We’re gearing up for another weekend away. This is the holiday I’ve been waiting for – for months now! My Uncle Henry and Aunt Frieda Kroeker, in Alberta, have raised five fine sons. I feel closer to them than most of my cousins because in our childhood years, they always came back here to our […]

Dad as a Craftsman

Last week we had bought a case of peaches. I’ve just had to clean up a bunch and get them into plastic containers for the freezer, as they were beginning to turn bad. I’m running out of those plastic containers, so I may have to go back to using glass jars again if this keeps […]

A Birthday Party of Sorts

Dad does not remember birthdays, nor does he know how to plan surprises, or even to shop for gifts. I’ve long ago come to terms with that, and it no longer bothers me. It’s not necessarily that he wouldn’t want to, he just doesn’t know how. Past experiences have taught me that if I want […]

It’s Berry Season Around Here!

Well, I bought that Costco membership card yesterday. Even got a $10 cash card to spend right away, courtesy of the young man who answered my questions last week. But had a bit of a let down as we went looking for my list of grocery items, and I saw that many of the items […]

Snitched Half-days

We got back home last Wednesday at 6:15pm, to find the garden grown about a foot taller! In just 5 days?! Dad began picking raspberries yesterday, and we’ll have to keep that up daily for a few weeks now. I’ve made calls to the strawberry U-pick farm, but been put off until Monday. I can […]

Come Look at our Flowers!

As you will recall, we left for Winnipeg on Saturday and have just got home now, Wednesday evening. More about our adventures next week. For now, I just want to show you some pictures of the flowers I was raving about on the 6th. The daisies, columbine and peonies on the eastt side of our […]
