Project 365 : Week 9

We're still awaiting the grand entrance of baby Bam-Bam *sigh*, so I have lots of time to be uploading pictures! I have to admit, that with just Byron and I (and we lead what a lot of people would consider a fairly laid-back life), its hard to come up with a photo for everyday of the week, but while it stretches my creativity, I don't view that as a bad thing :)

1. Yes, this is the extent of our excitement some days :) My cats stalk the sheep. The woolly creatures have provided us with loads of entertainment, but I am glad that Keegan took them home again. They wouldn't stay penned and had developed a taste for garbage ....

2. I love this car, end of story. The fact that's its only one of two in Canada kind of adds to its attraction, I must admit. I can't remember what its called, but you can't miss it if you are visiting the Reynolds-Alberta museum, its sort of the exhibits pride and joy.

3. I love this man, end of story. Actually not quite,I think there is a happily-ever-after in there somewhere :) We're so enjoying our little piece of earth, even though we share it with about a million mosquito's. Although there is a ton of work to do, we're enjoying being able to do it together. Even if that means sometimes I just follow him when he does all the work ...

4. It struck me as funny the other day when we were at the "big house" how the little kids are all grown up now. These boys all used to be shorter than me, and I can remember it too! Its sure neat to watch them grow from little boys, to young men and watch as God works in their lives.

5. A scrapbook page in progress. I've been doing a lot of that these days. It helps to pass the time, there are moments when I just feel like I'm 'hanging' and waiting for the next stage in life. Have to keep reminding myself that I shouldn't be to anxious for these last few days to be over. We get to create just a few more memories as the two of us.

6. Joshua Shonwise drove up from Olds to fix all of our plumbing problems, included was replacing my electric stove with a gas range. It was rather an exciting day for me :)

7. I finally finished re-doing the antique crib for our little one, and in a few months, Jordan, since its actually hers. I started the process well before we moved from Duffield, but because of all the spindles, and the fact that I am a procrastinator, it took me way to long. But its done now and I figure that's all the baby was waiting for, a place to sleep. Hopefully this means Bam-Bam will come now :)

Project 365 : Week 8

After about a one year sabbatical, and before another probably of the same length, I've decided that while I wait for baby to arrive (due date is Monday), I might as well try to be a little productive and instead of lying about on the couch feeling like a pumpkin, I am sitting at the computer still looking like a pumpkin, but at least doing something.

Back to Project X, oops, I mean Project 365 :) 

1 . Byron and I drove down to Wetaskawin today to drop of supplies for his current job and while driving encountered come pretty gorgeous clouds. These were the friendly ones. We saw a couple of funnel clouds as well, but they weren't showing up in the pictures.

2 . Byron and his partially dismantled dually. Its all put back together again and running like a top. I can't believe the things he can pull apart and put back together again ... properly. He's rather a wizard with vehicles.

3 . We had a baby robin just sitting on the fence post one afternoon. It let me get within a foot or so and though I was tempted, I resisted the urge to pick it up and adopt it, especially as the Mother bird was watching rather warily from the tree above.

4 . This is me, 8.5 months pregnant. 

5 . With moving, baby .... I didn't get the garden I was wanting, but have been able to move my little tomato plants along with us through everything. We have a total of 22 tomatoes on 18 plants, 4 of which have ripened this week. Yummy!

6 . I drove down one afternoon to see where the boys were working and snapped this photo of their job site. If I wasn't already in love with the place we are in, I might be tempted to wish to live here.

7 . Just my kittens. Poor things, they are going to be shocked when the baby arrives because currently they think they are the greatest things ever.
