backhome

 We are back home from our trip to Alberta to visit our daughter, Jennifer and her hubby Matthew and our brand new grandson, Ewan.  We had a wonderful time visiting and helping the new mom with all the chores and diaper changes etc.  We also had a lot of cuddle time with that precious bundle.  He is so adorable!

Isn't he precious?  I can't believe he'll be 4 weeks old tomorrow!


We had beautiful weather while there with sunshine every day and temperatures above normal and some days in the low 20's celsius.  By the end of the second week it was a bit cooler.

 I did get to see the Northern Lights but not from the ground.  As we were flying home on Saturday night (actually Sunday morning about 1 a.m.) I couldn't sleep so was looking out the plane window at the lights dotting the prairies below.  Then I noticed over the wing a pale green glow in the clear sky.  It was all along the northern horizon and some of them were dancing with streaks shooting up.  They weren't as spectacular as they can be and I've seen much the same here at home, but they were mesmerizing all the same.  I just wish the wing wasn't in the way and that I could have taken a photo.

Our flight was long as we left Fort McMurray at 7:30 p.m. landed in Edmonton, then Calgary for a 3 hour layover, then back in the air for over 3 hours before landing in Toronto with just enough time to find our gate and dash to the bathroom before our last leg to Saint John.  Phew!  We landed at 10:00 a.m. Sunday - a long night and I only slept, fitfully, for about 2 hours!

We enjoyed the beautiful fall colours on our drive home as the leaves are still on the trees here in N.B.


Here is our front yard on Sunday with lots of leaves on the
ground and the trees half bare.


We had to mow the lawn yesterday and bagged most of the leaves. However, we will have to do it again when the trees are finally bare.  All my plants in baskets and containers were frost killed so they are
 cleaned up. There is still lots to do to get the flower beds and yard ready for winter.

The backroad with pretty fall colour. (sorry for the picture
quality as it was taken through the car window)

I see there will be some maintenance on blogger tomorrow regarding image uploads.  I have been having a problem uploading pictures from Picassa for a while so I hope it will be better Thursday.  Has anyone else had problems with this?  It is very frustrating isn't it?

Take care and enjoy the beautiful fall weather.

Blessings,

Pamela
