busy summer

It's so nice that things are slowing down a bit, now that the rain has been here for a few days. Also, the trees are looking a little greener, and I bet the farmers are happy to see all this moisture!

Rain usually spurs a few gutter cleaning jobs as well, and now that Bill is between jobs again, every penny will help.

Today we have to buy a bus ticket for Emily, who is attending an Anime convention this weekend in Edmonton with Jamie, and Jamie's boyfriend Kyle. However, she has to be back on Sunday at noon so that she can pack for her second summer camp beginning at four p.m. that same day.

Em has been so busy this summer! She just returned from a camping trip to Crowsnest Pass and still has to get all her clothes and bedding washed. After she gets back from camp, she has a two day trip with Bill's sister, then the only thing left to do is back to school shopping. Hard to believe it's all going by so fast.

Anyway, today Bill and I are going out to drop off more resumes and hopefully we get some kind of meaningful work out of it. This past six months has been brutal in the job market!

Happy Wednesday!


  1. I am impressed that bus travel in Canada is still safe. I would not ride a bus in the states. Apart from the safety issues, there is the stench, so I'm told.

    Hope the resumes bring something good your way.

  2. just stopping by to say hi.... {hugs} and good luck on the resumés

  3. I can't believe I am jealous of your rain.

    Kate I sending all sorts of great vibes your way - the great job you both deserve will arrive soon - it just has too!!!

  4. Such busy kids.
    Every day is a new opportunity. Good luck.

  5. Wow awesome summer for Em. Best of luck with some more work for you both.

  6. Fun summer for the kids so far. Hope those resumes spark just the "right" interest :)

  7. I love the positive attitude you are able to access through all your ups and downs. You are an inspiration!

  8. I seriously hope that you guys do wonders with those resumes. Times are so tough and I just wish everyone well.
