My First Time

I'm new to the blog world. But I decided that since I'm not writing regular emails anymore, this may be the best way to keep in touch. Let's see how well I do at this!

This week was a crazy week for us. Monday, we had the fumigators come to get our house and yard ready for summer. Last year, we had a problem with snails and wasps in our yard so we wanted to try to avoid them again. Last summer, we found two scorpions in our house (!) and I don't want to come across any more this year. It was a lot of work getting things put away and covered before they came. After they had finished, they laundry began. Even though we had done lots to get ready for them, there still was a ton of washing to do. I was at it until Friday!! Wednesday, they came back and cleaned the carpets on the main level of the house. There were some horrible stains in the dining room - why anyone puts carpet in a dining room is beyond me! - and it was time to get rid of them.

Then Friday, my mom arrived from Avonlea. She had been travelling for a long time and her plane was delayed by an hour and a half due to engine troubles. She was so relieved when she came through those doors at the airport. It took Kirsi a few minutes to warm up to Grandma but then it's been all good since then.

We're having great weather now. It gets pretty hot in the day but in the shade and in the house, it's beautiful. The mornings and evenings are still cool, which is fantastic. Simba is enjoying the warm weather. He is definitely a Sri Lankan dog! :)

It's Derwin's birthday today. We're enjoying a relaxing, chilled out day. This morning, Kirsi and I made him a birthday cake. Then we put up our Christmas tree and decorations. Mom is going to take us out for a birthday supper later on. Once Derwin's birthday is here, we can start celebrating for Christmas. It still seems funny to be preparing for Christmas in warm weather. I don't know if I'll ever get used to it!

I'm staying up-to-date with Kirsi's pictures so you can have a look if you'd like. If you don't remember the password, email me and I'll send it to you. Happy Sunday!!
