"The best thing about this place is all the work!"

That title is a direct quote from Denver about his Gramma and Grampa Johnston's farm.

The first two photos are from October 13th when Dad and Denver cleaned the rest of the straw out of Jenny's old doghouse. Denver wanted to drive the lawnmower! Later Mum told him he could come back in the summer and there would be lots of grass for him to mow. He is so proud because he has already driven a golf cart, a bobcat and a lawn mower. Megan hasn't driven anything and she is past 15 already!

These next few photos are Denver and Dad cutting all the Hops plants off the side of the trailer. There were a LOT of them! These and all the rest are from October 14th.

"Miss Bob," I call her "Bobby" sat on the doorstep, oblivious to all the work going on around the corner. Pretty girl, too bad she froze her ears and did something to her tail!

These were some of the Hops already on the ground. I really like this photo. Lots of color and textures in it.

My Hoya has Finally Bloomed!!!!!

I have had this plant for YEARS and it barely grew at all. It grew a little in Taber, but has really taken off this year. I guess it likes the large North facing kitchen window. There are two bunches of flowers and another set of buds on it right now. These are photos of the largest bunch. I LOVE the smell. It reminds me of Gramma's house. Too bad I can't have "Scratch and Sniff" computer screens for you!

Fall Family Photos

This is a few of the family photos that we took in the park near our home on Thanksgiving Day. Monday, October 8th, 2007. I think they turned out quite well. Just need a little work on posing the kids! Enjoy!

Weird potato!

Has anyone else ever seen a potato like this? We got out the potatoes for Denver to make supper one night and they were all normal except this one in the bottom of the bag! I've never seen anything like it. One of the girls I babysit said "Maybe the potato was lonely!"
