Autumn

It is that time of year when summer is all tuckered out and fall wants to be let in.  The goats are missing all of the summer visitors, especially the grain treats.  Soon the cold days will be here and the goats will be spending time in the barn, waiting for spring once again.

The nights are getting cooler and the days shorter but there is still enough daylight for a paddle after supper with my kayaking buddy.

Amazing Race Canada

IMG_5362

What a beautiful day for the beginning of May!  As you know May can be dicey weather wise.  We could still get a miserable beating down cold rain that chills you to your core.  But not today,  it is race day.  Not just any race but the AMAZING RACE CANADA.   After a week of cleaning pens, spreading fresh straw and raking gravel the day is finally here.  The goats are brushed, and goatees trimmed, The goats are wondering what is going on. Milking stands in front of the shop? Strange people with cameras? Soap displays in the driveway?

Now the wait.  The teams are on the Island one of the film crew announced.  Next announcement the first team is leaving Charlottetown.    The first three teams have left the Table and went to plant potatoes and word came the rest followed.  All the people for CTV left when that announcement was made.

What a surreal feeling.  All the excitement and anticipation vanished.  Here we stood with the milking stands and all the goats waiting to be milked.  So, on to the immediate task, milking goats and then getting caught up on all the responsibilities we put on hold for the past week.

The busy summer started and the race day became a distant memory until last week it aired.  Prince Edward Island looked stunning.  The greens and reds were vibrant, the ocean a beautiful blue.  The people friendly, helpful and funny.  The show captured the beauty and the amazing people that live here.  What more could you ask for.

We are proud to be chosen for one of the stops.  It is too bad no one choose us but things have a way of working out.  We leant a lot and had fun.  Katie will give you your next clue will be apart of our family forever.

Canning

canningI feel this year more people are canning.   What I notice is the canning supplies in the store are sold out or almost sold out and people are talking about canning.  A lady came into the store and said she canned pickles all week.  She has not canned in years. We got started late but so far we made apple sauce, salsa and spaghetti sauce.

Are you canning this year?
