Fall coming on...crafty

September means-new pics on out wall of fame in the kitchen!

Finn and Wren hard at work on their fall picture...

one of the little super hero ladies painted while at the cabin. I am calling them the "Super Domestics" for now..any other suggestions??

A few wishing wands to sell at the Farmer's market...

We have had such great days in this early fall...found a few community apple trees to harvest, had a number of great friends help get all our winter wood, made stew and pies, taking walks in the bluest brightest skies.
Where does all the Autumn energy to create come from???
Not sure..but...
Definately my very favourite season.

oh Hello!

Thought I should maybe write a few lines seeing as a VERY VERY exciting bit of events took place here not so long ago.
While on an overnight visit to Kootenay Lake: my Son Finn (at the ripe old age of "four and a quarter" as he says) Learned to ride his two wheeler!

We his parents are ridiculously proud. Really, its almost unbearable!

Visitors, swingsets and bucket heads

We have inherited a pretty amazing Play structure from our neighbours (2 doors east).
Every small child that come through the gate is quite delighted. AS are we!
Here we document the journey-we enlisted a few other neighbours to help out in the process...

And also-we have had a little fetish with putting large things on our heads...

Opa and Omi came out for a visit for 4 days and we had a great time hanging out together. Many good story times, and of course the "meal out"...One at a restaurant, and one down by the river..

And then Mike and I went out on a Mother's Day'/ 30th Birthday Night Out..and I got to get all dressed up...and so i had found a new violet dress for the occasion..seen here below..sorta.
