Demolitian Car

The driver airbag is done

working on the passenger one

not easy to get airbags out
but a "must" in Derby cars
Look at how the fire extinguisher is placed

Missing the Kitchen

Our old kitchen went to the re-store from Habitat for Humanity

Now we are eating out more often
we tried all new dishes, mine was best "chicken mango".
the music was on repeat and we heard the same song over 20x
we started laughing every time it started again
I don't think we'll go back soon eventhough the people were nice

Taking pictures for the directory

some where already gone

but these ladies are very faithful on Thursday mornings
the quilts go to MCC
for people that are in need 
and we pray that they may be a blessing for them

For 2 Sundays we've been taking pictures for the new directory

Nice Barnboard background

Men's Life Teviotdale

taking pictures for the church directory

 Friday mornings in the depth of winter for 7 weeks

a group of men come together to have breakfast

and study the bible

this year it is Philippians

all ages together, love it!

The kitchen is out

In the evening the kitchen still looks nice

So it makes sense that the new kitchen is coming in the same spot

Habitat for Humanity will uses this kitchen again
volunteers came to carry it out of the house

Lunch was fun, we knew some of the other participants

Cross Country

Went with Annette to the river

On our skies

It was quite icy but so nice to be outside

We're looking for the word for this stacked ice

in the Netherlands they call it "kruiend ijs"

just getting some meals half done
so it will be easier when we are without our kitchen

The classifier came today

the cows were very relaxed

Edward O'Connor

we have a new Excellent cow

He was fast and fair
A few we had hoped for more points, and he did like them
just not enough to raise them

all info right away uploaded to Holstein Canada

No print out this time 
his printer froze a while back and is giving him problems now

Snow and Rain

after a few centimeters of snow we got
Rain and lots of wind

makes for icy roads

Yesterday we had a visit from our field man

we passed inspection with flying colours

Thursday, January 5, 2017


Almost time for the fieldman to come by

he will find our place clean

snow dump off the roof

lots of snow has melted

huge pile came off the roof

looks much more dramatic from inside

now high winds

won't be fun to drive in
