It is amazing how fast this year has flown by. It was just like a week ago when these trees were the same and I was in amazement. Oh my goodness where is time going. I am not sure I like how fast it is going by.
I have my computer back and I am not too sure I am happy with it. However at least now I can see what I am typing and I can put up pictures again. I do have to deal with my 26,512 photos though. I guess when I by some Cd's I will start moving them over again. Then after Christmas I will start printing some out. I do have a lot of them printed but I find it is a lot of money to do too many at once.
I am winning with my Christmas shopping and that makes me happy. I may even start to decorate soon in my house. I can on Wednesday it will the first of December !!! And, for the kids that means Chocolate calenders. I also think I should by some hot chocolate and more eggnog.

Still waiting for our main computer. Tomorrow we will pick it up. I miss being able to put up pictures. Today we went to do a bit of Christmas shopping and I realized money goes NO where!! Quite depressing really.
We also had to get my son's skates fixed his blade broke right in half which was also kind of crazy and expensive.
My boys are outside skating on our rink. It is -10 out cool but great for our ice rink.
When we were in the Mall we saw SANTA CLAUSE very exciting, he is looking well again this year.
Tomorrow is another hockey game and another trip out of town.
So soon I will be able to post some more pictures. Have a wonderful night

Cold morning -18 and our back pellet stove has decided to quit working!! Now what.
WONDERFUL weather for an ice rink though. I have been working on one since last week. Very chilly job. I cheated yesterday and put a sprinkler on :) So as soon as I check the animals and have coffee with Mom and Dad I will go work on it.
We finally caught the wandering Llama he has been out since the night of all the bears. It belongs to an older lady down the road. We were trying to ignore it but the day before I felt so sorry for it and yesterday he was looking for water. That was when we decided we would get it in and take it home for her. The last time we took it home she ignored my boys, offered to let us get rid of it etc... Soo lets hope he is not back in my hay stack.
I still do not have my computer back yet well over a week now. I am so not happy.
Well I should run just thought I should check in and make sure you are all okay.

I will only make a quick post as I am on my lap top. My main computer is in being serviced and I find this one very hard to work with.
It has rained all day here and snow all around us.
The trees behind our barn on the next land have been all taken down today. I am very happy they are gone but it is so sad to see all the trees dying. I was looking today and we have six more around the barn area and pens that will have to come down.
I have decided not to take my son to his morning practice if the rain turns to snow. And, I don't think it went over too well with the coach....
We had report cards come home today they were okay but how does one fail foods... That didn't go over well here. I am 100% behind any of the kids if they struggle and the marks are low but missing assignment's does not cut it. I am on top of the kids every night so there is no need for home work not done.

Today was quite a nice day for weather. It was hard to believe they were reporting bad roads up higher. Me personally, I would not know I have stayed home for a full week. It is quite good but I know soon I will have to head in and buy groceries. There is really no need for me to go to town with everyone else going. Soon there will be snow and I will have to do the driving again.
Well I am off to my bed. I can not fall asleep for a little while I still have kids who will be checking in. I do hope you all have a wonderful sleep.

Not a whole lot to say trying to find out what I am suppose to do. The days just coast into one another light the fire, chores, more chores, hockey, school, fire wood and more chores. Then it starts all over the next day.
I am thinking I should unclutter my house but the only problem is I love my stuff all of it. I think I will just close my eyes and through things out.
Have a wonderful day. I hope you figure out your days. Remember to Remember

Take time to Remember all the Soldiers in the wars.
Both sides
They all belong to someone.
They all have a Mom.
I am very grateful that my children have not taken that path. Because I will not stand quietly and I will not hand over one of my children without a fight.
All you Mom's who have or have had one of their children at war my heart goes out to each and every one of you.
You are amazing, strong and incredible role models.
Please know I pray for each of our children's safety.

Please pray for Peace and for love.

Another very busy day. Firewood lots of Firewood the kids and I brought in two bucket loads. The last load I will have to unload in the morning. I used the tractor quite a bit moved hay, plus wood and tree trimmings. I have decided to leave my Ram in until the fifteenth. That will still give me time to get the lambing done before I leave with my mom to visit my sister.
It is amazing how much work there is to do outside. A person could spend a whole day outside for the whole year and I am not sure if they would win.
It is not until after lunch time that the hoses can be used.
I am battling out with a Squirrel everyday he fills my water trough full of pine cones, and everyday I empty it. Then we start the battle again the next day. I am sure the strong pine water is not good for my Alpaca.
It is snowing tonight a stress I so do not want to deal with.

This is the view from the very top corner of our property. If you look straight through this valley it is heading towards our town.

Today started out a little chilly. I think I need to do some farming. It is amazing how being away for the weekend can set you back. So soon I will head out and start by counting sheep, then feeding a bad bull. Then I will move on to by Dads chickens where I am so stealing all the eggs while he is away for the next week and half. Then I need to move hay, bring in fire wood and prepare a place for my ram and billy goat.
Then this afternoon I hope to rake the spot where I would like to build the ice rink.
There is a chill in the air but according to the Internet no rain seems to be for - casted.
I made up a lovely basket of my Lavender products to be auctioned off at a fundraiser. I am quite pleased how much of the products I have.
Another thing on my list this week is to start my Christmas lists. I need to think about gifts we would like to buy. See what gifts I have already bought. On and on my list grows...
Go and enjoy a very busy Monday, accomplish lots

A very, very long weekend. We were away in Salmon Arm then after Sam's tournament we went to Kamloops to watch Dalton's game. It is amazing how fast the days go by. I am having so much trouble keeping my kids quiet tonight. They have been apart all weekend and I think they missed each other.

It has been an amazing busy week and this weekend is no different. We are in Salmon Arm with our youngest son for another hockey tournament.The weather is quite nice over here. Tonight I am listening to the Internet for my oldest sons hockey game.
For the last week for all we have done we really have nothing to say that we did. Just run from one thing to another.
I have made a few Christmas gifts and I do have to get serious with some ideas.
I am going to leave now have a wonderful night.

What a very, very crazy weekend. Actually all last week was crazy up every morning as early as four am. Hockey so much hockey. And the thing is we get to start it all again this week.
I have been handing a lot of the hockey duty to my daughter. I my as well take advantage of it until it snows. Today was a full day of rain. My husband could not work today as the logging truck need to see Kal tire again. So he ended up coming home early and he managed to fix our pellet stove which is very cool. Now we do not have to buy a new one.
I am off to work on a birthday present so have a wonderful night.
