Camping... I Love Camping!

Kaila and I brought Jenn, Karl and Brent camping for 2 nights at little Qualicum Falls. We walked all the way around the falls, went mini golfing, to butterfly world, to coombs, to parksville park and of course made a quick stop at our favorite farm!

2 more weeks

I can't believe how fast the summer has flown by, September is only 1 1/2 weeks away. This means back to Sask and work... I am currently contemplating whether to change jobs or if I should stay with the one I have. It has been a great job for me however I'm unsure that I want to have it as a full time job. Right now I'm looking at other options and I'll see if that goes anywhere. If you think of it you can pray that God shows me what he wants me to do.
But before I get back to work I have lots that needs to be done here... I'm going to be finishing up david's room and touching up the paint in the Kitchen. Then I'm hoping to paint Brent, Karl and Aidens room. Monday- Wednesday Kaila and I are bringing Jenn, Karl and Brent Camping. I also have youth group, a hockey game and a few friends I need to hang out with. Then I have the normal stuff like packing and helping mom out. This all needs to be done before September first as on the first heather and I are leaving Port at 8am to start our trip back to Sask. This trip will take us 6 days and is going to include going to Washington, Idaho and Montana, then up to visit Krista, Ani, Tj, Mavrick, and Phoenix, after a day or 2 with them then it's off to Caronport our plan is to make it back early enough on the 6th that we can get to church... we'll see.

I can do it all!

This past week while my family is gone I have been redoing David's bedroom. It was nice before just a little girly and not too practical for David. So I ripped out all the carpet so that I can put down linolium, and I've repainted the whole room and am going to put baseboards in as there were'nt any around the floor before. Here's what I started with:
And here is where it is at now... it's all this color so I didn't take pics of every wall!

Home on the farm... NOT

For the past 4 days I have been house sitting for some friends. This has proved to be a much more eventful time then I was anticipating. Did I mention they have a hobby farm?
Arrive at 7pm time to let the little turkey chicks out for a run and feed the animals. It was also time to put the big white turkey away all went well no issues... Yaaa!!!
I went out when I got up and fed the horse, goats, and turkeys. The big white turkey tried to eat me... but no problem I made it into the house without being injured. About 20 min. after getting in the house my eyes started to get itchy... this is normal I'm allergic to hay and or horses not too sure which I just know I get puffy eyes around barns... within an hour my eye was all red and puffy, by 12 I couldn't see clearly out of it and decided I needed to do something about it. I called the pharmacy because it was a holiday and I didn't think that this was important enough for emerg. He old me I needed to get allergy medication so that meant a trip out. Unfortunately I couldn't find my sun glasses so I couldn't hide my hideously puffy eye. I got my allergy medication but not without scaring a few children... they didn't think my eye looked so hot. After my arrival back at their house I chilled out for a bit then I decided that I was going to go pick myself some fresh veggies. on my way out I decided to grab the broom just incase killer turkey decided that he/she needed it show me who was boss again. I got into the garden with no mishaps however by the time I got my veggies there it was ready to eat me. All I could think was good thing I brought that broom or I would be here for a long long time. And boy did that broom come in handy when it was time to get out of there. since the broom served me so well I decided that it would work great to get mr. turkey back into his pen for the night.... it saved my life or at least my legs! Heather then came to help me feed the other animals so I could spare myself the puffy eye. Just a side note my eye did depuff after a while but it was still very red when I went to bed.
Back to work! so I had to feed the turkeys early and then I was off, heather came and feed the other animals for me and let out the turkey... not sure how it was for her. I came home and all was good until I looked out the window and big turkey decided that it would be fun to chase a poor lady and her dog down the road. WHAT WAS I GOING TO DO??? I really hate this turkey and it hates me so I went out with my broom and fortunately it decided I would be better to chase them dog walking lady.... needless to say that was mr.killers last chance he is staying in his pen until his family gets back! Then there were still the little turkeys to take care of and one of them isn't doing so hot... not too cure what's wrong something with it's leg/foot I would guess because it was limping/falling over.... poor guy.... but buddy really please stay alive until they get back I don't want to have to tell them I killed their cute turkey.
I'm back on feeding duty as of last night because it turns out heather is highly allergic to the hay/horse too... I guess our dreams of marrying farmers will never work out now:( Anyways I got up and first thing I went out and did my feeding tasks before I showered... little turkey still wasn't looking so swell... :(... feeding went great... I put killers food on the poop scooper and put it under the fence so he couldn't eat me... I'm too smart! Then it was time to shower. When I was in the shower I started to hear a mans voice... crap what's happening??? so I finished my shower still hearing it from time to time... AHHHHH I was going go to be killed!!! So after I showered I got brave and went out to see who was in my house and then I heard the voice again it said "your batteries are low" and then it said it again I'm thinking in French... well it was nice to know I wasn't going to die just needed to change the batteries on the smoke detector.... who knew they made talking ones? I just realized I took the batteries out but I never did replace them... I guess I should go and do that. Well that's all for now from the farm... stay tuned for more!
