Back To Reality

Good Morning, it is a crisp damp fall day this morning.(great morning for bird hunting) I awoke to a chill in the house this morning, HB got up at the same time and put a nice crackling fire on so the weeones would be warm when they awoke.
I made oatmeal in the slow cooker last evening and added a little honey to it for breakfast this morning. I made toast and heated up the left over biscuits from last nights supper.
It has been awhile since I have been around blogging and there is a couple of reasons why. First being that since Wednesday morning we have had no phone lines here, so this means no internet as well. They were only fixed at noon on Saturday. The wiring had burnt coming up the lane and they had to rewire the whole thing.
It was so funny to reach for the phone or to try to get on the computer and and say "oh ya I forgot no phone,or no internet" (and I did that more then once) hehe!
The second reason is I was away to my annual Women's retreat this past weekend. I left on Friday afternoon and arrived back home on Sunday late afternoon. It is a weekend of learning new and neat things to do with spinning. I always love going and the food is super and the women are too. I plan on a post this week on my trip.
The weeones stayed next door at my Dad's for the weekend as HB had to work day shift. They all had a ball and my Dad enjoyed having them.
Mom had a good weekend and had a nighbour visit her over the weekend in the hospital so it gave my Dad a break as well.
I always find it so busy the first couple days after going away to get back into the routine around here. I spent the day yesterday washing,cleaning cooking, sweeping and unpacking. Got bread made and biscuits to go with the baked spaghetti for supper.
Today I just wanted to pop in and update anyone who was wondering where I have been and why I have not been commenting on any of the blogs I follow.
Tonight's supper is sort of still up in the air, as I totally forgot to take out a ham and will instead have it tomorrow night. I might take out some tomato soup that I made earlier this fall and froze and have a pizza board, and homemade crackers with it tonight. (It is just that kind of cold weather here for soup)
The weeones have a short week this week with Thursday and Friday off of school for teacher's meetings. HB only goes back in on Friday night, so it will be a nice break this week. We are invited out to supper with our friends on Thursday night as he will be coming home from working away on Wednesday. (We always try to get together when our friend comes home for the week)
I guess that is about it new around here.
Till tomorrow have a great Fall day everyone!!!


  1. I am glad your internet is back up and running. The Women's retreat sounds like so much fun. I think I would have enjoyed that!

  2. I was missing your posts and hope that all was going well with you after your eye surgery.

    Have a wonderful evening with your family.


  3. I was wondering where you were :)Glad you had a great time at your retreat! I remember you talking about it last year. I bet the kids had lots of fun with their grandpa as well. Hope you have a great day.
