It had indeed been a breezy night, the whirling and gusting making for a slightly restless sleep…
or so I was told 😜
All others who occupy the house were away, so ”twas a day of self reflection 😏😜
Not actually, I just did odds and ends and had to decide what to make for supper.
Peanut chicken with zucchini noodles was the poison of choice as we had zucchini, which isn’t always the case, and the sister had tried the recipe and recommended it 💁🏻
A colorful variety of veggies came together and a delicious sauce began to blend.

Sunday Sept 3rd –
We stayed home and listened to a sermon that morning.
Father had to depart back to work that afternoon, so time was spent together.
A breakfast of kodiak pancakes, eggs and fruit filled our bellies and then the bro and his tribe came over to hang out as well.
It was a weekend of much caffeination
I had a custom order to wrap up so the old thinker was dusted off and it worked on finding a suitable form of packaging.
I admit to being proud of what the thinker came up with 😉💕
The Pops said his ‘see you later’s’ and it would indeed be later, as hubster and I soon leave on a trip to the states.
I had more cement pieces to create and some things to sort out pre-trip and then the mom and I went for a walk.
Mike didn’t want to walk with us, but he did want to do something outside.
So he and I tossed the baseball around for a while, before he decided to tackle me and I had to try to use my newly gained strength to remove a human who is truly double my size. Continue reading “Savoured And Devoured…All At Once “

Mike and I headed to town so he could again, try to figure out what was wrong with the car and after that try to sell some Cookies.
Which he did both 😏
An all wheel balance cured the car of its major shakes and Family Foods in Prince Albert now stocks stroopwafels! 😄👌🏻
I cleaned and a tip was given and goodness that’s a good feeling 😎
Especially since my last job cashiering offered no tips, ever…and even if it had been offered, we employees ‘were not allowed to accept’ 🙄
After getting back home, I had to figure out a supper plan so I went to the 21 day fix Pinterest board 👍🏻📚
Broccoli and cabbage were stir fried with a marinade and toasted peanuts 👌🏻
Mike grilled the chicken and I made a kind of tomato ish/soya sauce which was less pleasing but alright 😜
I really liked the peanuts added in with the veggies and though I have eaten things like that before in restaurants, it somehow had never occurred to me to add them in on my own.
Thursday Aug 31st –
Another morning of cleaning and then town errands.
Mike required a lock chop (hair cut) before we head to the states, so we searched out a salon for him to try.
While I waited for the deed to be done, I ate my packed, quinoa salad for lunch.
Right beside Dominos Pizza…🙄 Continue reading “I’ve Got This Feeling”
Monday Aug 14th –
Our last morning at the cabin.
We and the father were shipping out and the bro’s wife and tots were taking our places.
Packing up our belongings and sweeping out the little cabin were the minimal tasks we had to complete and then a few hours of the usual cabin goings on remained until we said our fair-wells and were taken to mainland by the bro.
Before leaving though, Uncle Mike had to help Alaina make a water bottle boat to help entertain her until the cousins arrived😉
A quick stop in town look for a belt for an event coming up for me and picking up a PALLET of cookies for the husband 😝
It’s official, he’s the cookie man 😏😋🇳🇱🍪 Continue reading “Selling Cookies And Living Off The Land”
