Well folks, it did the unthinkable. It snowed yesterday. Started out a mix of rain and wet snow but by early evening it had started to accumulate. Now we have about an inch or two of wet snow on the ground with the electricity flickering in and out. And I just looked out the window to discover it is snowing again. I tell you this is just wrong! It was only the 25th of September. Last year the first snow was September 27th and it lasted until April 29th. Chris is a little perturbed as he was going to go out and cut wood. I guess the guys will still go cut wood because we still don’t know if we will be here another winter or not. In a case of the not, there is no need for more wood…
A praise! The repair work to house has been completed and Ian’s room is now water and weather tight again. The contractor finished it on Thursday! I am so thankful he did not have to drive down here hauling supplies for the job as the road will be so treacherous for the next few weeks. I am so thankful the Lord allowed us to do our errands up in town and get back home before the snows came! Still no washing machine but we do have a laundry mat in our little village so there won’t be the need to drive 60 miles one way to wash our clothes.
The garden is now done…. We still have carrots to be pulled and beets. A wet job but they should still be fine as they were planted in a raised bed. There were still raspberries ripening but it looks like those will be left to the gray jays and sparrows. As much as I love them (the berries) I really enjoy watching the birds flitting about as well.
By the way Rebecca has a great challenge going on over at her blog which I would love to link to but haven't figured it out.... Last weeks challenge was "Wind" which we had photos for but can't get them to load. Next week is "Black and White." As creative as I would like to get I just don't know. However I do have one assistant (unwilling as he may be) who loves to dress in those colors so he gets to be a "fashion" model!
P.S. There are no photos at this time as I can not get them to upload no matter what I try. Dial-up is running slow today and everything keeps timing out. So I guess I'll just do an update later and post the photos then!
