Rains of summer

"What's it like living in Prince Edward County?" That is the question friends and family keep asking. "Wet." That is my standard answer.

One wonderful thing about country... Continue Reading →

Our new playground

Water. Peacefulness. Family. Play. So far this summer those words keep swirling in my head. For the first time, we have a pool and on such a scorcher of a summer, it is being used, a lot. By our children, grandparents, nieces, nephews, friends and critters. Critters? Yes, I have quickly become the champion saviour... Continue Reading →

Friendly Places

Our first few weeks here have been a blur of activity. Unpacking, organizing, people in and out fixing this and that. Re-setting up our life. Finding out how the local cable company and Internet providers work. Getting back to reality with work and deadlines and managing new schedules. At about two weeks in, I threw... Continue Reading →
