These have seemed like crazy days. Back to regular work routine. Back to school routine. Lots to be done these fall days. Of course, such an enjoyable part of the garden season (especially when bringing in potatoes and squash and such that don't require hours of my work. It's been fun to see Neve's excitement in it all. She is so fun this girl, learning like crazy, saying new words everyday, and brings us so much joy.
And the new fireplace has arrived. Love it so much already! We spent the first night around it, kind of enjoying it, but too distracted making the plans for how to finish it. Ian's planning to start collecting rocks and doing it all himself.
inherited. Back to the car with our purchase and on our way out of town. Yes, I think, we only lost half the morning! But, there's a good looking garage sale. We stop, of course. There's a toaster oven, a nice one, almost new and I've been wanting one. So back across the street to the car to run to the bank. A friend pops out of her house who had been away so we visit for a bit. Would we like some cucumbers? Yes, so Nell stays to pick some, while Neve and I run. Into the bank and I run into Constable Muirhead (who we go to church with), who says, oh, I heard you had a bad morning. Oh, for goodness sake, I think, this small town stuff is too much sometimes! But, its good and we laugh and visit for a bit. Back to pick up Nells and we meet my friends daughter in law who has been on a 2 month cross Canada honeymoon trip and we have fun visiting. Get that toaster oven and run into a friend, saying some of us are going to park...Sheesh, I may never get home. Nell wants to go, I don't talk her out of it, but we see another garage sale while I drive and try to convince her to go home. We stop and run into a couple more friends to visit with. Still wants to go the park. So we do, and its wonderful. Make new friends, play with loved friends and catch up. Finally on our way home and I laugh when I look at the clock. We'll have a late lunch when we get home. Quesedillas in the new toaster oven enjoyed with some freshly thrown together garden salsa and I think that morning just had a mind of its own, but its all okay :) Oh, these crazy days! I'm not the only one with crazy, mind-of-their-own kinda days, am I?
