Fall Has Arrived in Saskatchewan

The crops they are a-turnin' colour. Soon everything will be golden.

I'm on the run these days, and tired when I'm not. So you find me in bed by 9:30 most nights, and not wanting very much to get up at 6 a.m.

It's all I can do to find time to water and deadhead the flowers that are in pots. Or to find energy to go for a walk.

I thought time only flew when you're having fun! I'm not having any. But life is good anyway.

Everett hit the rhubarb yesterday morning as he drove into town to work, with me in the passenger's seat. He's only got his learner's licence and I should've made him drive slower. For a few moments there, I was sure the car was going to roll. The boy stayed calm though, and good for him.

Anyway, gotta go as soon as Scott is off the phone. Another day in the sun and wind. The leaves have started falling from the maple trees.


  1. Jeez Louise! Any damage to car? Where, how, why?? Poor Everett probably really hates to drive now!

    1. Yeah, when I picked him up after work that afternoon he tried to wangle out of it ("My ankle is sore, been running all day") but I made him drive anyway. It was an important lesson about speed that could've had a very different outcome; I'm glad he has learned it the easy way. We were on grid road north of GGFarm with too much loose gravel and he probably overcorrected (10 times) when it grabbed the wheels; there was a lot of fishtailing and eventually he just drove into the ditch and came to a stop. No fenceposts, no water, no approach to hit, no damage to car. We were lucky. And now he is driving nice and slow, and so am I. Put a good scare into us both.
