It's so hard to post on a blog when you've forgotten your user name and password. That's why I have friends like Carolyn, my webmaster. She worked and searched and found the details we needed in an old email. Says she doesn't delete anything. What a woman. She said she needs to start a business being a troubleshooter. I think she's right! A person could have her on retainer. So, if you're having trouble with your computer or website, let me know and I'll send her your way -- for a fee, of course...LOL I'm in the midst of teaching, waiting for a student to come from cross country races. Tis the season for cross country running. Wish I was doing that again. Running through the woods, against your friends, stumbling over tree roots, feeling the cool fall air. Oh those were the days. Well, I guess I could put it out there -- anyone want to go cross country with me? You're never too old to run, are you?

In case you want to email me, take note of my new address: firstname.lastname@example.org. We had to change our provider after the big move. Went to Grand Manan last week for a few days. Spoke at Harvest House and did some singing, too. Thanks for all who attended and provided for us while there -- you know who you are! Our home away from home.

My shoulders ache. My neck aches. Do you suppose the weight of the summer is upon them? Advil, Tylenol and a heated 'magic bag' do not help. I need a good shoulder massage. Oh well, perhaps sleep will help. We are now giving tours of the new property, not official tours, but tours nonetheless, so come along and see "Heartland Fredericton." This morning I led worship at church and spoke as well -- "Heavenly Minded." Can we be heavenly minded while being on the earth and doing earthly things? Yes -- it IS possible. We have been raised up with Christ Jesus. Colossians 3:1-4 -- check it out.... I hope I have a heavenly sleep.

Wow, time flies when you're having fun and building a house, playing with grandchildren, home renos, camping trips, hikes, family, family, family. Everyone is settled back to where they should be -- Granny & Jed in their new home, which is attached to ours with a beautiful Doug-built sundeck; Natalie, Aiden and Sarah are almost in The Pas, the Southshore Sister finally made it back to the southshore, and Doug and I are trying to adjust to the new normal. It was a wonderful, chaotic, family-filled, renovation summer. Now to try and get ready to work. I cleaned the downstairs level today like a workhorse, so I can try and focus on the tasks ahead of me this fall. You know how that is? When you're house is not in order, it's hard to get your brain in order. I'm a tad weary. But Jed & Granny are settled and happy.
