Earning our ‘keep’

September 17-26, 2015

The time here in Keremeos goes by very quickly..

IMG_0737

almost two  weeks have passed and I don’t even know what we have really done in that time..

IMG_0739

Sure there were chores and such..just normal stuff..

We made a few trips to Penticton to do some shopping ..and one trip  to Osoyoos to visit our ‘winter home’..

IMG_0736

just to check things out…more on that at a later date…

We  went to Haynes Point Provincial Park..so ‘you know who’ could go for a swim..they have a great dog beach there!

We have been here before but Tucker was much younger..

IMG_0729

..not too sure if he remembers that far back but he is not one to care about if he had been here before?

IMG_0743IMG_0740

..the only bad thing about him going swimming is that it turns into a ‘make work’ project in the name of laundry..

IMG_0746IMG_0751

..stinky dog blankets washed at the ‘good ole Laundromat’..yes we have been here before too!

so as ‘farm life’ continues..

the ‘poop’ gets picked up..

IMG_0752

 ..and hauled away on the tractor..

IMG_0756

..and there is ‘yet another’ supervisor?…

We even had time to venture into the town of Omak..

This is the small border crossing called ‘Knight Hawk’..

IMG_0758

..it was a quick trip for the usual ‘American items’ that us Canadians usually purchase..milk, cheese..and gas..

With the exchange on the US $ some things are cheaper but not all items..sure there is the  fact that wine and beer is less money but just doing a day trip we cannot purchase any of those items..

IMG_0759 ..so as our days are winding down in Keremeos, today was filled with ‘Pink and Blue’ chores..

Defrosting the fridge..

IMG_0762IMG_0761

..one load of laundry..and some housework…and a few rows of knitting..

IMG_0763

a roast in the crockpot..

IMG_0771

..and the ‘blue’ chores were never ending today..

moving sprinklers..

horse poop pick up

washing and waxing the trailer..

IMG_0770IMG_0766

..check the air in the tires, lubricate the slide..

..there was time for  a ‘chin-wag session’..

IMG_0776

..a run in the orchard..

IMG_0774IMG_0772

..a nap outside..such a tough life..

IMG_0767

..and there you have it..a recap of the last nine days..only  two  more days  and the wheels will be turning again..

..just a foot note..we purchased a wifi booster antenna from amazon..so this has sure made life much easier…

IMG_0780

..we have gone from one little ‘bar’ to five ‘bars’IMG_0778…$39.95 well spent!!

  1. Sounds like you have been enjoying your time there and not having to rush about for anything, which is always nice.

    I remember going to Hayes Point Park when we were in Osoyoos back in November 2007. It is such a nice area there. Glad that Tucker got to go for a nice swim.

    When I defrost our freezer, I use a hairdryer. I find it works really well and also much quicker.
