Where are we now?



Monday June 19, 2015


A few days back, we drove through a construction zone and the wheels of the MH got really dirty.
Robbyn has a pressure washer and I am using it to clean the wheels of the MH.  J.R. gave me some stuff to clean the wheels quickly and easily.  I spray the wheels.
 

I pressure wash the wheels and most, if not all the mud is off the wheels.
 

Why not pressure wash the car too!


The propane tank too got cleaned.


After so much work, it is time to relax and watch someone else cook supper.
Robbyn and Michele are playing "picture me picture you"!
 

Of course, we got a little rain too, but just for a few minutes.
The reward is a nice rainbow.


A good day and evening with Robbyn and her friends.



Tuesday June 20, 2017


Robbyn and her brother and sister are not using the land, so they rent it to other farmers.
Close to the house, some of the tenants.


Robbyn has a few errand to do in the little town close by.


We had to stop on the tracks to take a picture of a snake.
 

Next, we went to visit the "camp" in the bush.  I forgot to take any photos!

When we got back home, I could not resist and I took a power nap.
This is what you have to do when the couch is too short!


Her three cats had their litter a week apart.  It is funny to watch them as they get more confident.
 

Another good meal and even a fireworks from Robbyn.


Tomorrow we are leaving Robbyn.  We say our goodbyes to Loyd and J.R.  They will be gone by the time we get up in the morning.



Wednesday June 21, 2017


Departure time!
We go in the house to say our goodbyes to Robbyn.  She is not awake yet.  We leave a little note on the table.
Thank you Robbyn for your hospitality.  Say "Hi" to Loyd and J.R. from us.


Four kilometers after we left the farm, we are back on the Trans-Canada Highway going west.


Shortly after we drove by Brandon, the rain hit us hard, but not for long.


We were supposed to dump our black and gray water in Brandon, but I must have been asleep at the wheel because I forgot!
At Elkhorn, we saw a sign that said they have a dump station.
 

They even have a small, but well maintained campground.
We dumped for $10, not bad at all.


This is the first time we see a polar bear as a lawn ornament!


One hour and half after we left Robbyn's place, we cross into Saskatchewan.


The sky clears, but the wind turns and we now have it in our face.
The wind is blowing between 30 and 50 km/h with wind gusts of 65 km/h.
Not easy to drive a MH in those conditions.


Another first, a burnt-out tractor next to a field.


Moose Jaw, here we come.  What a view!  The town dump behind the welcome sign!


We are settled in when Jeremy comes back from work.
 

We spend the rest of the day talking.
We made it to our destination after driving more that 2,900 km.




Thursday and Friday June 22 and 23, 2017


Thursday morning, Jeremy is back to work and we continue to get settled in.
Thursday evening, we met Jeremy's girlfriend, Kristin.  Shoot!  No photo.

Friday, after work, Jeremy is putting up his tent to make sure everything is OK with it.
Next Thursday we are going camping at Wakamow for Canada Day.  Jeremy, Kristin and Gabriel will be with us.
 



Kristin is back after work.  She works in Regina where she is a "Respiratory Therapist".
Tomorrow morning, Jeremy and Kristin will be going to Medicine Hat to pick up Gabriel.

We had very strong wind Thursday and Friday.  To top it all off, it was only +18°C both days.



Saturday June 24, 2017


Michele and I are grocery shopping this morning.  I also bought oil filters for the MH, the car and the generator.
The first oil change is on the car.
 

I did not change the oil on the MH because where the plug to drain the oil is located, it would make a mess on the driveway pavement.
I guess I will be doing it at Patrice and Manon's place.  I did not do the one for the generator either because the oil filter will be here only on Tuesday.

Gabriel made us laugh a lot!
 

And a new lego!


We are very happy to be with Jeremy and Gabriel.



Sunday June 25, 2017


I am checking the water level in our house batteries.
All of them are a little low, but it is normal.


Our loved one!


Time for a bike ride.
 

I finally washed the MH.  It really needed it.
 

Gabriel is back from his bike ride.


We bought a portable soccer net for Gabriel.
He is very good with the soccer ball.
 



Spider woman attacking the villain!
 

After a very busy day and a good bath, life is good.
 

A little TV before bedtime for Gabriel...
 

A good day.

Until next time.

Life is good...
