Hey CK!

I just saw a trailer for this movie. It is so up my alley. Have you heard of it? What do you think of the trailer and the concept?

If this link doesn't work, look up the movie: Cloud Atlas;_ylt=AnB_PSFdTCZ6.oXSIg9TzePAtYd4;_ylu=X3oDMTM5NGlhNDE2BG1pdANFbnRpdHkgVHJhaWxlciBJbiBQYWdlIFZpZGVvIFBsYXllciB3aXRob3V0IEhlYWRlcgRwa2cDaWQtMzAxMzM1OTQEcG9zAzYEc2VjA01lZGlhQ2Fyb3VzZWxJblBhZ2UEdmVyAw--;_ylg=X3oDMTE2Z2ppM3RwBGludGwDdXMEbGFuZwNlbi11cwRwc3RhaWQDBHBzdGNhdAMEcHQD;_ylv=3

A good day's work

I am slowly getting posts together on Estonia and Finland. They will be up soon, but in the mean time, chores still have to be done.

Last week M and our neighbor, Paul, rented a splitter and spent about 4-5 hours splitting wood at his house and ours. We had those giant logs from the Holly trees we had taken down a couple months back.

So once the wood was split, we had nowhere to put it until I could find time to clean out the woodshed. They stacked it against our fence.

So today I cleaned all the old wood, hay and trash out of the shed to make way for the new wood. Halfway through getting the new wood stacked in the shed, we got an hour long soaking rain that was desperately needed. So the new wood is in and tomorrow I will re-stack the old wood in front of it.

Bring on winter, we have plenty of firewood!

I have been busy with teaching, painting around the house and family things so I've gotten behind in my posts. One other thing that has captured my attention is the litter of puppies my sister's Shepherd had 4 weeks ago. My sister lives in Ohio, so I'm enjoying the puppies through photos. I will drive to Ohio at the beginning of September to pick up a boy puppy from the litter for my very own. In the mean time, here are some pix of the puppies.

Oops, I just checked my post and saw a painting picture got in there. I hadn't intended that but since it's there, I'm painting over the burnt orange in the living room and painting the room gray. Thanks to my neighbor, Michele, for the paint color.

Happy Canada Day!

Thank you to our neighbors, Paul and Michele for hosting a lovely Canada Day party. Hours later we are still so full!

Last full day in Europe

Ahh, all good things must come to an end.  Our European vacation is drawing to a close.  We leave Nice this morning to drive back to Barcelo...
