Summer is flying by it has been busy but oh so good. So many projects started and finished, a little drama with the cougar, raccoon and such. The animals are all okay now a lot of grass for them. The new sheep are fitting in.
The kids are all well, a positive summer that is for sure.
School in less than a week and only two kids attending but two kids attending college!!
The gardens have done well in spite of the cool start. However in my herb garden sunflowers sure took over I think I will have to learn to pull some of those out next year. With so much building this summer my gardens did not get 100% attention.
Oh the lavender did though.
The Lavender business is going really good. People are starting to find us, the plants grew wonderfully.

Only 3 degrees here this morning that is way too close to freezing.
That is our typical crazy Canadian weather. It could just down right depress me thinking of snow, shoveling snow, cold, driving on ice, arenas... I had better get outside and enjoy the last few weeks.
I hope you all have a wonderful, amazing day today.
 What will you do?
 Squeeze something awesome into your day.
 Take Care

Good day there is fall in the air.
A sweater was needed last night and this morning.
 I do love fall but I am so not ready to give up my summer. I realize I write a lot about the jobs and the work that is being done and needs to be done. On a farm, yes there is a great deal of work, never ending, same over and over.
And, yet it is so satisfying.
 Nothing better than being out in Nature every day, hands dirty good ole hard work to keep you grounded
. As it is work ~ it is relaxing, it is pretty and it is home.
This cold air has made me think decorating with Pumpkins :)
Oh the Inspiration is everywhere

Good Morning.
Another hot sunny day ahh love summer.
Today I am off to support "A chance at change in 1 day" soccer game at CMS.
There will be hot dogs/water for a $1.00 all going to Ethiopia. Wonderful cause some very special children won over my daughter. If you’re local come on by.
 It will be fun and a very hot day!
The day turned out wonderful they raised over $500.00.
It was hot, extremely hot.
 The soccer players seemed to have fun.

An amazing Good Morning!
 I am off again this morning this time to the fire base to pick up my truck. I have been most of the summer truckles...I think she will need a wash and polish to make her sparkle!
 We sure can feel fall in the air here ugg how does it happen so fast you know fall means school and hockey. Two worst things ever, however on that note I hope your day today is full of love, magic, Inspiration and Lavender.

Yesterday the kids and I took my Mom to the airport.
 Ahh I had to drive from the airport through Kelowna-to the mall- through Kelowna some more-to a fast food restaurant-over the Coqu.
For some you would say so what for me my husband has drove for the last 25 years.
I have so lost my confidence it makes me want to throw up.
 No I won't try it in the winter but I did it and I know where the mall is now :)

Warm, sunny days here. The sheep seem content in this photo, they have settled down a bit now. The cougar was caught a few days ago. The goats are still spooked. They were getting better then yesterday there was a bad dog fight over at our neighbors and now they are scared again.
It has seen a change in the weather even though it is still very hot in the day it drops quite cool at night and early morning. I am not ready to let summer go yet. Enjoy the last few weeks of school holidays

We have been having some wild thunder storms here. Crazy!
I hope your summer is going well mine is going way to fast. Quite sad really darn school is really, really really close. My fire fighter has been kept quite busy which is great for him the fires have not been too big, so not too much damage. (I don't think anyways).
We are having trouble with a Cougar it has killed one lamb two goats and way too close for comfort. It was right next to our front yard, right up above our house and right in the barn yard. I heard it was stalking one of our neighbors last night. stressful
Well on the that note have a wonderful day

There is not one flower I do not like they are all beautiful.
 I have favorites.
 I would like one of each please.
 But, do you know I really think hens and chicks are quite amazing~they are very forgiving, they don't care if they get stepped on, they don't care if they do not get watered, they land feet down and start new roots no protesting, they will grow in a tiny flower pot, they will grow in a ring around a tree. They will produce offspring without any hassle.
As simple as they are and quite over-looked I really like them.
Perfect for a nice display but short on water.

Good Morning it is hard to believe it is August 1st.
Wow July flew by that would be because of my amazing projects. Now for August I hope to slow it down, enjoy more quiet time.
 I am not very good at all at doing nothing! So it may be a challenge. I will let you know how that works out.
 We must finish up with this last garden so that is on the agenda today.
 I hope you have an amazing day take a moment to check out the Olympics those athletes are unreal. The dedication is amazing
This is our Olympics
Happy Summer
