High wind

A storm came up quickly. First dust and then a very strong wind
The screens blew out of our veranda

The power was out for 27 hours

It sure looked like Tornado weather and I used the word for a game of hang-man but Marc didn't guess it.

Our Neighbours had their shed blow off the foundation, over the house. The shed used to be where the big hay bales are.

The hydro crews were busy lots of new poles got up quickly

Balancing act

All Ontario Coffee Break Rally Drama: How to keep our "plates" in balance. The plates were: Husband, work, child, volunteer work, sports / Gym, help sibling, help aging parents.
We talked about the plates that we try to juggle ourselves and the plate(s) that we would like to eliminate from our lives.
I'm OK at the moment
Later a real time juggler did a plate balancing act.

All songs and speakers were interpreted for the deaf.
See also the beautiful plants at the stage. I saw some well know last names by the greenhouse donations.

Cows on the loose

When I picked up Marc from drum lessons I met these young cows. At the same time 4 of our own cows had departed the barn as well. Luckily they walked back in the barn by themselves.
