By the Lake

Howdy everyone!  We are slowly getting the house to a state of "done" but it's going slowly.  One day at a time.  We still have the odd box to unpack.

Today Todd is working on getting the house wired for Ethernet and other media connections.  He spent a lot of time up in the attic yesterday feeding wires to all the rooms of the house.

Last night Spencer and I enjoyed the backyard and took some pictures outside.

Looking South over the lake...

On the dock...

Watching "Muck the Muskrat" paddling out in the lake...

Having fun on the row boat...

One of my favourite photos of the evening...

My other fav photo of the evening...

Dick and Judy are due to arrive tomorrow.  It will be good to see them as we missed seeing them in July/August when we were home for Dad's illness and funeral.  We're all looking forward to seeing them!

Settling In

We are slowly but surely settling in to our new home.  We still have lots of stuff to organize and figure out where it will all go but soon each room will look complete and tidy.

Spencer is settling in to school life again. He now takes the school bus to and from school.  This is him waiting for the bus yesterday for the first time.  Makes for much earlier mornings than in Elkford!!

This was the amazing view I had from bed the first morning I woke up here.  Teaco has been enjoying all the wide window sills and the amazing views too!  Marlee just doesn't care :)

Just today I was looking out the dining room window at all the ducks we have visit us each morning and I spied this little fella... having his breakfast too!  I'd always seen the large white shapes across the lake but thought they were swans... not pelicans!!!

We're already anticipating our visits from Dick & Judy in a few weeks and Mom in November sometime.

On a side note, I got a job.  YUP!  Didn't really expect to get one so soon but.. oh well!  I put in an application and got a phone call for a job interview within 24 hours.  I'm now working at the local McDonalds on days when Spencer is in school.  I figured if I wanted some new, nicer furniture that I better save up my own pennies so I got the job to aide my "new furniture" fund! LOL!

Off to work!  Hope everyone is well!
