Summer is going by faster than I like. The kids have just over 3 weeks left before they have to go back to school, and I know those weeks will go by just as quickly as the first 5 have. Way too quick. We’ve been enjoying the time off from routine, staying in our […]
Let me tell you, Manitoba has had a beautiful summer so far. Many days in a row we’ve hit 30°C (which is about 85°F), the humidity hasn’t been too bad, and since we re-finished our deck last month, we’ve spent many, many hours outside. Eating all of our meals out there, reading, and just […]
Today I have a guest blogger sharing a simple, refreshing recipe with you. I’d like to introduce you to Sue from Ivy Hill Farm.
