Had a few weeks off but back on the blog now! We have had a great early September, probably the best run of sun of the whole summer. We did have a sharp reminder that winter is just around the corner yesterday with a drop in the temperature but its promised to be back up to late summer highs today!!!
The geese are getting ready to fly south at the drop of the first snow with swoops over our house and formation flying in front of our bedroom window on almost a daily basis. Because of the wet summer we have had a permanent lake in the field behind us so this year the geese numbers during the day are the highest we have seen. I think this will make their departure at the start of winter all the more of a wrench!
You may be getting the impression that I am not looking forward to winter this year. Well you would be right! After last years winter I am dreading it, but, we are promised a milder winter this year by the weather guys - Yeh right! We will see :-).
Of course with winter comes ice hockey and this year will see Maisie in her debut year as a TimBit hockey player! So, starting this weekend the morning hockey sessions start for both Wills and Maisie - bring it on!!!
We saw one of our favourite bands Keane just one week ago in Winnipeg and we took Wills as part of his birthday present - it was great. The theatre is one of the older venues but it does have great acoustics and there is not a bad seat in the house. Wills picked up a T-shirt and thoroughly enjoyed himself as did Cat and I.
Phew, that was a marathon!!! Promise to keep up more regular entries in future.
