Once again, the days have turned into weeks and I haven’t taken the time to write my blog. Still, it is nice not to have to feel quite as committed to it as I did from Africa when I wrote every Sunday for three years.
The weather in Saskatchewan is the big ‘talk’ as it continues to be mild with no snow. It has been a nice way to adjust to winter after three years in the Zambian sunshine and warmth. We leave on Friday Jan 20th for a few days in Ontario with Ryan, Sally, and Evan before flying to Costa Rica for 5 weeks. That should also help with the adjustment phase.
We are still quite busy with our move to Hanley. With the nice weather, I’ve been trimming trees and doing yard work and Marilyn has started painting rooms in the house. We have a lot of painting to do. Christmas also took a big bite out of our schedule but was a blast.
We also took a day to drive with no particular destination in mind. The landscape in Saskatchewan still fascinates me and everywhere we go, everything is a picture.
If you didn’t catch this news item on CTV about Zambia, then check it out. QUITE SHOCKING
This blog is short if you don’t count the fact that each picture is worth a thousand words. Enjoy.
It is so common to see many abandoned homesteads when driving around Saskatchewan.
I’ve bought the 1985 Chrysler Newport that is sitting in our garage (conditional on mechanical inspection this Wednesday)
