|(ps. I did this to the tractor at one point... that's the wheel back there)|
A friend visited from Toronto and we attended the annual folk music festival in Ear Falls (north of home) called Trout Forest Music Fest. This was the second year Kyle flew all the way from Toronto to attend the small festival (but it's fair to say he's hooked!) and the boyfriends first time ever to attend (he seems pretty hooked too!).
Here's a few photos to get you up to speed!
|I attended a Volkswagen Festival in southern Manitoba with the boyfriend and a couple of his friends.|
|Mum had a pretty good first year in her new gardens at the new house.|
|I harvested some honey from my hives!! (I didn't get much but I learned a lot and am ready for next season!!)|
|I lost some chickens :( (I started with 13, and was down to 8... but I bought some more and am back up to 13!)... here's the old gang before the fox struck|
... no worries though, the foxes made a dent in my chicken population, so I made a dent in the fox population.
(no, I won't show you what I did to him next...)
My birthday happened!!
|And I taught myself how to crochet! (blanket in the making! I'll share the super simple granny square pattern that I've been using and show how things go and when I attach them to become an actual blanket!)|
So now you're basically caught up with me!
Coming up will be winter preparations, moving, a trip to Hawaii and hopefully me not failing at this blog updating thing!
