Driving Miss Donna - what does this mean? Whenever I want to go somewhere, if Don is home he will usually drive. He always says he is driving miss Donna! This blog is for our travels, usually with our truck and fifth wheel trailer, but sometimes in our other wheels. When we are not vacationing check in for updates, although less frequent, about our life at home and our wonderful family:)

There's Just No Excuse

It's actually embarrassing to see that I haven't posted for a month!  I hope you can appreciate that it only means we've been enjoying the quiet side of being home. 

Although Don has not been flat out busy he has had a steady influx of work, field and office. I've been in the same position as well. My work with the Co-op Board has been heavy, but enjoyable. 

Facilitating for Volunteer Alberta has also increased, and I have a new client with a longer term need, that should take me through the winter. So all is well:)

Our first order of business when we arrived home at the end of September was a family photo shoot. 

I think it's fair to say that this is my favourite!

We had a great Thanksgiving, a day with the family and a beautiful fall drive to see Ivan for a visit before he heads south. Days are spent doing some work, some play and some exercise. 

We've both been fighting some sort of cold/flu, and it has really set me back. I'm struggling with my yoga and weight training as my ears are blocked and I can't seem to move my head around too much without pain or nausea. Hopefully soon I'll be back on track. 

Blake is back into hockey full swing, Emerson and Reese have started playing Ringette, Connor is taking swimming lessons (although I haven't made it to see yet), and Mason moves around the house like a pro!

Don also celebrated a birthday in there and the cake was enjoyed by all. 

Fall is the company's annual safety audit time and I have just started the process. Good thing I like paperwork!

So the days go by and life is great. I will try to touch base a bit more often but sometimes no news is good news!
