a quiet monday morning on Prince Edward Island

Wow, we live in PEI, how cool is that! Love it being here. sometimes I miss Ontario, but not TOO much. I liked being closer to family of course, but also MBC, Algonquin national park, cottage country in general up there and all the memories of family vacations and outings up there. Those were good times. Its when its quiet that I think more about how it used to be, days gone by that will never come around again, thats just how it is. I always think I need to enjoy the moment but I don’t know if I know how to do that. I mean I enjoy it but how do you make it last any longer? You can’t really, you just try to enjoy it for the brief time its there and move on. This summer has been crazy, as I said before, likely one of the most significant years ever in my life, top 5 at minimum, likely higher unless other bigger events transpire. One thing I miss is doing our little drives, go get a Tims, drive somewhere, discover something new, and not be in a rush or be tired or be on some timeline.  I also have reno work to be completed which is delaying the mortgage payments – don’t start paying mortgage until we’ve borrowed all the money we requested for renos.

Oh and church, we’ve been so tired, busy with family – a whole pile of excuses, and we haven’t been out to a sunday evening service in a while. Sunday feels a bit incomplete without sunday evening service, of course with Arden it complicates it. If it was right on an hour, it would be easier, but the service can stretch up to 2 hours or more sometimes – maybe we just need to purpose to leave at a set time :/ More than an hour with a baby means you need to get up in the middle some time for feeding, or changing or something…

Back to my quiet monday morning – its not quiet in my brain! I have my cup of coffee, sitting in my man chair as my laptop fries my legs with radiation 😛  . And its not so quiet anymore, got some construction guys scraping the pavement with shovels. Its a nice sunny day out, blue skies, a little breezy as is usual here on the Island. I’ve grown to appreciate wind and breezes, I used to hate them in Ontario because they would always make what could have been a nice toasty day, a cool one. Now though, it provides cooling at night, keeps our flag flying high, carries dust from our vacuum away and helps to dry our clothes and firewood! Also keeps bugs at bay a bit. Provides fresh air in the house all day long.

Speaking of wind, here is a view of North Cape where we were saturday night:

70 Mile Yard Sale

Looking for a yard sale? how about a 70 mile one! We were up near North Cape and stopped to look at (and purchase) an antique dresser. As I was talking to Meryl (?) a mechanic, I told him I was looking for a lawntractor snow plow as he had a few tractors sitting in his yard and some tractor implements. I figured since he was a mechanic, he might just have one I can buy 😉  . He didn’t have one buy told me of the 70 mile yard sale down by Wood Islands.

Funny thing was this was a guy over near North Cape telling us about something over near Wood Islands, one side of the island to another. Must be a famous yardsale. He warned not to take a trailer cause you’ll end up loading it up with stuff to bring home 🙂

Join the Fun! Don’t Miss It!

I think it will be a great experience even if we don’t buy anything,… and I’m sure not buying anything won’t happen anyways.. we’ll see SOMETHING there we can’t resist! Should be fun!

Life can be busy if we let it be that way

I’m home now, yeah! Really don’t like going on trips, if I could teleport back home each night and do what I want, then trips would be bearable. Otherwise, I might as well be at the office 24/7 and working while I’m on site with a customer.  There aren’t really any perks for me to be travelling at all – have to watch what I say in this day and age on the Internet 😉  Anyways, glad I’m home and I can ‘have a life’ again.

I’ve finished my coffee, now I need to go out and fix the signal wires for my trailer 🙁 I spent big bucks on a nice integrated trailer lighting kit and now somethings not working. Missing a ground, or something is shorting. Boo-urns… This aft we may be picking up a used bedroom set, which is kinda cool actually but my trailer lights don’t work so unless I want a ticket, I need to fix that.

Possibly when I get home I’m going to work on the porch out front. Have some tear out to do there of rotten wood, then I need to get the original post back in place and finish that job so we can get our money from the bank on that. Technically we don’t start paying for our house until all the renovation money has been delivered and since I haven’t had a lot of time to finish reno jobs, we can’t get the money from the bank for those 🙁  … oh, so back to the title, I have a million things to do, I’m trying not to let it be too busy but on the other hand we’ve had so many people over that i really need to stop eating out and start getting some more house work done… and weekends are the only real time to get into a job.

On a totally different subject, I’ve been watching and reading all the iPad 2 rumours, multiple sizes, retina display, camera addition. Love it all, I’m saving my money up for it. I won’t get an ipad without a camera in it, thats a huge piece for me, the rest is icing on the cake. I’m hoping they do a fall release of a new ipad (which is a bit unlikely) to coincide with the iOS4 update that all the ipods will be getting (and which the iPhone already has).  I’m always looking forward to the release of something and this is it this time around 🙂 Its fun waiting and watching and being excited about these things. I find it fun anyways.

Ok, I’m off to get some work done….
