Wow, we live in PEI, how cool is that! Love it being here. sometimes I miss Ontario, but not TOO much. I liked being closer to family of course, but also MBC, Algonquin national park, cottage country in general up there and all the memories of family vacations and outings up there. Those were good times. Its when its quiet that I think more about how it used to be, days gone by that will never come around again, thats just how it is. I always think I need to enjoy the moment but I don’t know if I know how to do that. I mean I enjoy it but how do you make it last any longer? You can’t really, you just try to enjoy it for the brief time its there and move on. This summer has been crazy, as I said before, likely one of the most significant years ever in my life, top 5 at minimum, likely higher unless other bigger events transpire. One thing I miss is doing our little drives, go get a Tims, drive somewhere, discover something new, and not be in a rush or be tired or be on some timeline. I also have reno work to be completed which is delaying the mortgage payments – don’t start paying mortgage until we’ve borrowed all the money we requested for renos.
Oh and church, we’ve been so tired, busy with family – a whole pile of excuses, and we haven’t been out to a sunday evening service in a while. Sunday feels a bit incomplete without sunday evening service, of course with Arden it complicates it. If it was right on an hour, it would be easier, but the service can stretch up to 2 hours or more sometimes – maybe we just need to purpose to leave at a set time :/ More than an hour with a baby means you need to get up in the middle some time for feeding, or changing or something…
Back to my quiet monday morning – its not quiet in my brain! I have my cup of coffee, sitting in my man chair as my laptop fries my legs with radiation 😛 . And its not so quiet anymore, got some construction guys scraping the pavement with shovels. Its a nice sunny day out, blue skies, a little breezy as is usual here on the Island. I’ve grown to appreciate wind and breezes, I used to hate them in Ontario because they would always make what could have been a nice toasty day, a cool one. Now though, it provides cooling at night, keeps our flag flying high, carries dust from our vacuum away and helps to dry our clothes and firewood! Also keeps bugs at bay a bit. Provides fresh air in the house all day long.
Speaking of wind, here is a view of North Cape where we were saturday night:
