The time here in Keremeos goes by very quickly..
almost two weeks have passed and I don’t even know what we have really done in that time..
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’..
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..
..not too sure if he remembers that far back but he is not one to care about if he had been here before?
..the only bad thing about him going swimming is that it turns into a ‘make work’ project in the name of laundry..
..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..
..and hauled away on the tractor..
..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’..
..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..
Defrosting the fridge..
..one load of laundry..and some housework…and a few rows of knitting..
a roast in the crockpot..
..and the ‘blue’ chores were never ending today..
horse poop pick up
washing and waxing the trailer..
..check the air in the tires, lubricate the slide..
..there was time for a ‘chin-wag session’..
..a run in the orchard..
..a nap outside..such a tough life..
..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…
