Family Weekend

Well after long thought, prayer, mulling, hemming and hawing I'm done with the farmer's market. I've decided to put family first. Which is something I should have done a long time ago.  I now have Saturdays off and it's lovely.  I'm just so unstressed it's incredible.  Well less stressed anyway.  I'm not thinking of getting rid of the animals anymore.  I just had too much on my plate.  Maybe when I retire I'll go back.  Maybe....

I couldn't resist putting in a cute puppy picture to begin this post.

A few months ago I went to Ontario on a business trip. Of course you get loads and loads of samples. This was one of them.  I thought I'd give it a try. The instructions said that you could use it in a front loading washing machine and to use only half the bottle for a load.  So I only used a third.

This is what happened!!

I'm glad I only used a third and not half. It was supposed to be low sudsing since it's HE. Thank goodness!

Saturday we went to Digby and stopped at my least favourite place to eat.  MacDonalds.  Yuck.  But it's semi-cheap and it's quick.  Well let me rephrase that....most MacDonalds are quick, but the one in Digby is the slowest and the one most likely to screw up your order.  I'm not slandering them.  Slandering would mean that what I said isn't true.  This is true and anyone that has gone there can vouch for that.

Anyway....I digress.  I wasn't very hungry so I just ordered a Happy Meal.  When it came back we were all amazed at the size of the Happy Meal fries!  Look at the following picture...the container on the left is a large.  The one on the right is what you now get in a HAPPY MEAL!!!  I just couldn't believe it!  When 
they first gave the order to Dave it had 4 I repeat FOUR fries in it.  He sent it back and said fill
it up!  So it came back with 6 fries.

Their excuse....you now get a yogurt with a happy meal.  Well guess what chick pea...I'm lactose intolerant so what good is a tiny yogurt going to do!?  

It will be a long time before I go back to MacDonalds again!  But to do them a bit of justice the thing is just so darn cute.  It looks like toy food.

We went to Digby for a fire truck rally. It's their first one and it wasn't too bad.  They had a firetruck parade and a local TV personality was the parade Marshall.  Heidi Petracek.  So we all got our photo taken with her.  She's very nice and she's a cat person so of course she's wonderful!

We got to go up in the bucket of a ladder truck.  It was so cool!  I took pics of the town of Digby.

We just got home from Digby at 4pm when Dave thought to ask our hay dude when he was going to bale the hay.  He said now.  We were like...huh?  Now... it's 4pm.  So we ran home got changed and came back to load 142 bales of hay.  
Dave can't lift anything heavy now...so guess who loaded the hay. Me, J. and Tomas.  Dave supervised.
It was kinda funny because Tomas comes to me after a dozen bales or so all in a panic, "Look, look Lisa! I'm allergic to hay!" Showing me his arms.
I said, "No Tomas, don't panic, everyone is allergic to hay. So back to work." 

Have a Blessed Evening


  1. Nice hay! Yes I do think everyone is allergic to hay! Sure is hard work putting hay up.

    That is the sweetest looking pup too. Glad you don't have to get rid of the animals either. We've just got to decide where our priorities are.

  2. Good on you! Sometimes it's just so hard to decide what activities to cut out. Though the family card makes it easier. Digby sounds like it was fun. Just two words for Thomas - long sleeves.


We love hearing from everyone! Please leave a comment even if it's just to say hello!
