Work, work, work!

Hello Bloggy Friends

I can’t believe how long it’s been since my last post. I started my new new job on June 2nd and it’ been hectic ever since.  I have quite a long commute, so by the time I get home, it’s already after 6:00 pm. This has drastically changed our lives. Tori has had to assume cooking duty, and let me tell you, in the first week it was not a pretty sight! After a week of overcooked fish and dry rice dishes, we went to Costco and bought a week’s worth of their home-made meals – shrimp pasta,  smoked pulled pork, roast beef that you can cut with a butter knife – things were better the 2nd week. By the third week, we were eating really good home-cooked meals complete with salads! 

On the home front, things are moving very slowly. Tori hurt his back about a month ago and it’s healing slowly, but yard work has been kept to a minimum. We’ve been mowing the front and the part of the back that we use and just tidying up the rest. It’s not too bad and quite pretty with the buttercups forming a sea of yellow.

At the Farmer’s Market this past weekend, we bought a honeysuckle vine

which I will be planting today, and a lovely hanging basket. I was going to get an outdoor rug for the new patio set up, but my budget didn’t allow.

We had a few decisions to make this past week. My job is just under an hour’s drive in a little town called Mission. Our short-term goals are to update our vehicles and for Tori to come off the road and get a day job, so to speak. There is plenty of work in and around Mission and even a few positions where I work. So we decided that we would move in the Fall. Mission is a pretty little town with friendly people

I can see this as being a place we could spend a long time in.

Summer has officially arrived and it’s a beautiful day – so into my garden I go.

Until next time

Jane
