Hot new farm hand.

And if I didn't know any better, I'd say he's thoroughly enjoying himself.


Manitoba Bound!

One half arived on Monday, the other half will fly on Friday.

We can hardly believe we are at this stage of 'the plan'!!!

Amazing! Emotional. Anxiety. Exciting! Life changes yet again.

The plan is to spend the next few weeks living here in Manitoba, not just visiting. For once we get to unpack, help out (with harvest!!), have un-rushed visits with friends and family, and get to see those we haven't been able to in previous visits due to brevity.

I love harvest. Brings back a flood of memories, and unfolds into some of the most picturesque scenery the prairies have to offer.



We sadly yet excitedly moved the last of our stuff out of our home. Before the weekend we sent out an e-mail plea for moving help, and a crew of people showed up! One word: Wow.

Although now homeless, we are far from lacking a place to stay. People are so generous! Not only with a room to crash, but with dinner on the table! Never before have we had so many dinner invites that we could actually accept! This whole 'no (absolutely obligatory, grades depend on it) university work' is great! Although I am lacking motivation to keep working on my project to try and mold it for publication. It just seems so daunting! And I'm soooo not up for another daunting task right now.

But, in a nutshell, last week as a huge week for us. Finished the degree, moved out of our apartment. This Tuesday is so drastically different than last Tuesday. And this will probably be the case for a few Tuesdays to come.
