Loving the Land!

We have been busy on land this spring and summer.  Most recently, we are at Little Bow and Bill has a requirement of 2 hours a day of work.  Well…I have easily banked 3 days doing things around here but honestly, it is so great out here, the work is worth it.  Today was a mowing day, using the lawnmower, weedwacker, and tractor. A lot of area to mow!

Another work day included righting the outhouse that had blown over last winter.  It took great minds (thanks Randy for the A-OK) and a good tractor to get her standing again, minus most of the roof.

We always find time at the end of the day, however, to enjoy the lake and wonderful company.

Once again, it was Wild Oats and Notes…the music festival in Tofield, AB and on the farm of a good friend, Brian!  So many people work so hard to make this incredible event a success!

Most of the time, the weather cooperated……

but when it rained, it poured, making it almost impossible for the big RVs to move out.

We enjoyed fabulous music, great friends, and scenic surroundings!

I volunteered this year and got to work backstage, keeping the musicians fed and hydrated.  I enjoyed a totally different perspective and met some very talented people.

Back in Canmore, we have tried to get out and enjoy the gorgeous scenery, when weather permits.

Bill was also busy all spring enlarging and enclosing the front entrance to his house.  What a great improvement!

On my way to Calgary, I detoured to Boston and spent a week with Whitney, Jason, and my darling Kennedy!
