Planning ahead

Someday, yes someday spring will show up.

We've had a very mild that means a frikken cold spring!!!
Holy shoot.

My Hellebores is growing well despite the snow and freezing temps.

But we're planning ahead. The picture below you might recognize.
 It's where the goats used to graze.
We've brought fill in and soon we will be putting up a greenhouse.
Maybe even two. Not sure yet.
It's a perfect spot for growing plants. 
Not far from water and nice and sunny.

Simonne and Grenouille are doing well. I had to take a picture of them 
to send away for a contest. Hopefully we win!
Simonne is growing older and we think she's also going deaf. 
We do know that she's got cataracts but the last month or so we've noticed that she's
getting hard of hearing.  Oh well I guess it comes with the territory when you get older.
We love her anyway.

Since we're planning ahead that means Jamie is growing older also.
Yet, I seem to stay the same is that? Hmmmmm
He's going to be 17 this month!!!

Ack! He's got a part time job and a car. He's living the teenage dream.
He's also planning on becoming a firefighter after he graduates next year.
He's become a volunteer fire fighter at the local fire hall. We're super proud of him.

Since the paid departments are few and far between, that means he'll have to go 
away to get training and move away to find work.

I'm hoping he won't go further than Halifax.  I could handle that....but Ontario?
Too far!

Since competition is pretty stiff to get into firefighter school, 
he said if he doesn't get into it the first year, he'll either work for a year and reapply or go to plan B 
We'd be really proud but worry a lot.

Oh well that's why we raise our kids, to hopefully 
be happy, healthy productive members of society.

Right? Right?

Have a Blessed Day!

  1. A life of service is an honorable pursuit, but yes I'm right with you and would be worried all the time. He sure is a handsome fella :)


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