Good Evening everyone..
So glad to have you stop by and visit for a bit..
Did you have a good weekend?
Just thought I would post a few pics of our doings here on a Spring weekend in New Brunswick..
We had glorious weather ..
Cool but sunny with a bit of brisk winds..
Terry and I woke up on Saturday with a desire to have ourselves another farm day..
We had had a busy week and it just seemed like it was calling our names..
We find it a very relaxing thing to do..
Our old place is located between two hills and the wind breezes through there.. Usually, there are a herd of cows out beyond the barn.. (They belong to someone else..smile)
And there is never very much traffic and so quiet..
Relaxing if you know what I mean..
You would think to hear me talk that we live such busy stressful lives instead of two old mostly retired ones.. grin..
Anyway, we headed out that way and stopped for our traditional coffees to drink along the way.. It only takes us a half hour but we enjoy our Tim Horton's .. (Canadian coffee)
Well.. when we arrived in a wee town that we need to go through to get there we realized that it was the annual River Run...
There were trucks galore with ATVs on trailers everywhere you looked. There were folks on bikes and walking..
Cars parked along the road for miles..
We need to go over the river to get to the farm so it was kind of fun to see what was going on..
To be honest we generally try to stay away from the event as it is quite a party.. smile..
The public were warned that the police would be out in healthy numbers and they were..
Well, we ended up at the farm in one piece..
We met quite a bit more traffic then usual.. Two cars every mile or so .. I told Terry that Prosser Brook had bumper to bumper traffic..
I thought I was hilarious but you know he takes that place seriously and did not get my joke.. LOL..
Gotta love him..
When we got the place warmed up a bit I decided to make bread and put on a ham to cook.
Terry worked away at cleaning up the yard.
I wanted to do some switching furniture around and we did that for a few minutes..
We had bought the old hutch you see in the pic at the auction..
Twenty dollars, I think..
It looks a bit better then the enamel top table that was there.
It just needs to be painted especially the mended drawer..
Things need to be arranged better after it gets it's paint job..
We had lunch/supper and then decided to take a drive up to the windmills..
There was still snow up there and the maple syrup pipes were everywhere..
They must have got a pile of syrup this year..
The windmills are awesome and there are so many of them..
They are located up in the Kent Hills ...
Well, when we came back down there were a bunch of young fellows mud-bogging up the snow mobile trail..
Oh my word....
What they do to those vehicles is unbelievable!!!
Covered in mud and gears grinding.. !!
And grinning their heads off..
I don't get it..
On our way home we saw one lonely boater under the bridge but most of the activity was over although there were still lots of traffic..
We were almost out to the highway when we pulled up beside this poor lad..
We heard them say that had hoped that when they got on the road that the air would cool down the motor but instead it blew up
He was not a happy looking camper..
I guess it was fun for a bit..
To be honest..
I guess I am an old woman but I tried to get Terry to explain to me what the sense in this is..
You take a decent truck or whatever and put it through all the mud you can and perhaps ruin it..
He said most of these guys probably work in garages and fix them each week and then head out again on the weekends...
I guess if that is a priority for them then it must be worth all of the hard work to pay for it..
Then on Sunday we attended church in the morning and evening..
Wonderful lovely presence of the Lord..
Our grandsons were there and we were talking about the farm..
I told them I wanted a donkey and some sheep..
Today when we got home I had a tweet from one of them telling me I could buy a donkey for $600.00 and they found me 2 sheep for free but I had to give the owners the wool for the first year..
Isn't that precious!!
I am trying to talk Terry into it..
How do you think I will make out???
Have a good night dear hearts and thanks so much for all of your sweet comments..
I love them..
Until next time..
Wow.. this is a long post..
Hope I didn't bore you to death..
Don't read it.. just look at the pics.. grin..
