Day 273 - Wednesday, September 30, 2009

Matt was sick in the night - he was fine in the morning but thought he should stay home for the day just in case. We had a great day together. It makes me want to keep him home some days! He helped me add some fall decorations throughout the house.

Day 272 - Tuesday, September 29, 2009


Our first fall leaf bouquet on the way home from school. I'm sure there will be many more.

Day 269 - Saturday, September 26, 2009

The card I made for Melanie's shower (her first - and she is the mom-to-be!) She received a bride's bag of essentials too.

Day 268 - Friday, September 25, 2009

She is confident to go in by herself. You go girl!

Day 267 - Thursday, September 24, 2009

Extra people in my bad, does not a good sleep make. Marlee was there but disappeared before I could get the picture.

Day 260 - Thursday, September 17, 2009



The U2 concert rocked - seriously amazing, other then the man in front of us smoking up - I'd somehow forgotten it wouldn't quite be like the MW Smith concert I'd last seen. More info to come here.

Day 259 - Wednesday, September 16, 2009


So sad for us. I will miss her articles in CK magazine - they were pretty much my favourite. I would have to say her style and organization have been very inspirational to me. But yey to her for putting her family first. We can learn from her.

Day 258 - Tuesday, September 15, 2009

Great shot of Nick and C working on changing the water line for the new irrigation system. This boy loves boy stuff!

Day 257 - Monday, September 14, 2009


Another loss. It seems to be a big year for losses this year, and they continue to sadden me more then ever. He handled his struggle with cancer with such dignity.

Day 256 - Sunday, September 13, 2009

We participated in the annual Terry Fox run before church


and headed to Fall kick-off at church where we had a reverse day (adults went out to "Sunday School" and kids stayed in) and introduced the new children's groups.

Day 255 - Saturday, September 12, 2009


Matt started ball hockey for the season and we've been making Country Style a pit stop for their sprinkle or coconut country bits (the only ones in town).

Day 254 - Friday, September 11, 2009


Garbage day was pushed back this week because of Labour Day - this is all the recycling we brought back from TBay. For all that I complain about how little we do - we do more here, and this seems like the least we can do.

Day 253 - Thursday, September 10, 2009


The soap dispenser got broken today. I think a new plastic one is in order.

Wednesday, September 9, 2009

Day 252 - Wednesday, September 9, 2009

Happy 09/09/2009! I took advantage of a great deal today and stayed up til midnight filling my online order with Walmart for 99 photos for $9.99. I actually ordered 281 photos before I ran out of time. I'm sure they'll keep me busy anyway.

Happy birthday to my 2 cousins as well - one of whom is actually 9 today! Too cool!

And Marlee was sort of ready for Senior Kindergarten today!

Day 251 - Tuesday, September 8, 2009


Matt is all ready for grade two today!

Monday, September 7, 2009

Day 250 - Monday, September 7, 2009


Sure to be one of our last days of swimming and outdoor snacks. The nights are cool so the pool is cool.

Day 249 - Sunday, September 6, 2009


Close up time at the cottage. Sad to see it go and blessings for a safe return next year.


We stopped at Agawa Trading Post for a pit stop and Marlee wanted pictures with all of the "creatures" and "people" around the place. Matt and Cierra soon caught on and wanted photos of them all as well.

Day 248 - Saturday, September 5, 2009


The new shelving (finally up for me this year apparently) has made a real difference. It is so nice not to have to go down into the dining area for all of the dishes!

Friday, September 4, 2009

Day 247 - Friday, September 4, 2009


We woke up today to fog across the water. Beautiful.



Later in the day the neighbours came out so the kids got reacquainted with them and their toys.

Day 246 - Thursday, September 3, 2009

My feet need some work - aka some pampering.

Wednesday, September 2, 2009

Day 245 - Wednesday, September 2, 2009

Another day spent working on the wood around the cottage. I think we have done more work this year then we have since the kids were born! It feels and looks great!

Day 244 - Tuesday, September 1, 2009


Marlee and I spent the day shopping for her birthday gifts and doing some errands. Nothing better then some 1:1 time - making it her "bestest day ever"! We strolled through the mall - checking out the displays, trying things on...
