She uses the ramp like it was always there. So cool!
Ben came over on Friday to see if he could clean my chimney. He had no experience with my kind of stove, and couldn't get the cap disconnected. We tried to get the chimney pipe disconnected to do it from the inside, but that didn't work neither. So I have to ask the handyman who put the stove in how to do things. Ben also removed all the old barb wire that laid in the northern woods. Now I can let my horses in there without worries once I have fenced it off.
Sunday I went with Carol and Melva to a training to learn how to work during voting on the 19th of October. Unfortunately I can't do the job that day because I'm landed immigrant and not Canadian citizen (yet). Too bad. But the training was very educational anyway. I learned how it goes behind the screens and about certain rules during the voting day.
It was also a nice opportunity to catch up with my dear friends.
Sunday evening and night there was a big wind storm going on. All Saskatchewan had trouble with strong winds, and I can say it was scary. The extreme gusts made the cabin vibrating and outside it sounded sometimes a train came by on full speed for minutes at the time.
Next day I could clean up some stuff in the yard that was blown around.
I checked the fence in the woods, and trees were fallen over. One laid on the fence wire, so I pulled it off. Very heavy, even though it wasn't not a big tree. Lots of insulators were ripped off too.
Monday was thanksgiving in Canada. In the morning I cooked all the vegetables and made a salad for supper.
I went to Sheri for a visit around noon. It was nice to chat with a coffee and cookies.
Paul came over later in the afternoon and we had a wonderful meal together. Not the traditional thanksgiving meal as I had no turkey. I served mashed potato with parsnips , covered with old cheese, broccoli, carrots in honey and a salmon pasta salad. Paul brought apple fritters which was really tasty after our meal.
After supper we had a walk with dog and cats. I had to put the horses back in the pasture.
It was great to have Paul over and we talked a lot and had lots of fun.
Yesterday Sheri went to Yorkton to shop for tiles and invited me to go with her. Before I went, I fixed the fence in the woods first. It didn't take too long and I was done long before she came to pick me up.
I did some chores so that when I came back later I didn't have to do anything.
Shopping in Yorkton was lots of fun. I found some great cheap floor tiles, peel and stick back splash, and a piece of lino that looks like laminate, for my bedroom. I got some groceries and also got myself a warm long robe. It's lovely and really nice to put it on when it's cool in the morning.
Sheri and I went to Tims of course. I love my iced cappucino surpreme and a chicken wrap.
While looking around I got many new ideas for my cabin. Sheri and I both love to wander around in Do it yourself stores and smell the scent of wood.
It was lots of fun. On our way back in the early evening there were northern lights. So beautiful!
I'm so happy with my great deals!
