Sea Soil

Yesterday turned out to be the perfect day for......hauling loads of the loveliest sea soil around.  I decided to sweet talk my Dad ( aka Papa) into being my driver.  I have a love/hate relationship with his utility trailer !  He lovingly agreed and off we went.  We're lucky to be only a short distance from the best sea soil place around.  For the locals that are willing to make the drive it's a great bargin. $40 buck a yard.  If I was to purchase this same amount bagged from the garden store it would have been more like $ 100.

It's crazy how delighted I am about this beautiful pile of dirt !  I was so delight with life that we did a second run for my pal Cori.  We're both dream of our gardens and all the glorious food we're going to grow!

Thanks again Dad !!!

" I'm glad it was nice out, Mom ! "

  Our winter sure has been long, wet and dark......However, I think maybe it's starting to be " Spring".  Last night, well actually all week has be community " pitch in".  Anthony & the Rangers were cleaning up along the shore Monday evening ( It was dark & drizzly).  Tuesday Keisha & the Guides were clean up the local hiking trail ( It was side ways pelting rain & wind !!.....poor Keish) and much to the surprise of everyone...Ana & the Brownies were treated to a beautiful evening to work around the ball diamond !

Wednesday Homeschooling group - Ms. Maren's

We had our first visit at Maren, Eva & Max's home today.  I now understand why the others speaks so highly of the home they have set up for their family.  They have the loveliest sunroom for the kids to play.  We chatted, picked herbs, played, stomped through the bush and soaked up the sun.  A very peasant way to spend a few hours......
