Scratchings in the Dirt

Another week flies by

No pictures on this post – I haven’t figured that one out yet! Clem is busy hauling 10 truckloads of lentils 25 miles to be cleaned, and hauling the screenings back again. What an ordeal! I guess it’s going OK – we haven’t really seen him for two days!

Adam and a friend are hauling bales for a neighbor today and tomorrow. That should knock some of the piss and vinegar out of him for a while. The Rebels won their football game in Wilkie last night, so he was pretty pleased (although he never saw the field). Wilkie has a strong team and it was a tight game, 40 – 38.

Stephen has a hockey game in Kindersley today against Rosetown. Apparently these teams are quite the rivals, so it should be a good one. We are on the schedule to work the penalty box, and I hope some nice dad takes pity on me and takes my turn. Stephen played two exhibition games in Saskatoon last weekend, and my dad and I went in to watch. It was pretty good hockey – some of those teams have been playing together for a while already. The Klippers tied one and lost one (badly), but all in all it was a good day.

Derek had a buddy out yesterday, and he stayed over. We could hear them talking at 4 a.m., and got up to find them on the computer! Mother was not impressed – they will be going outside to play today.

So that’s about it. I don’t do much except run after kids and sports teams, and cook the odd meal when I have time. I did finally get the windows cleaned, but now I can see all the outside work waiting for me. I’m sort of looking forward to the snow!
