Good morning, MMC! How is everyone today? What do you have planned for the weekend?

It has been pouring down rain for at least five hours now. I don't mind a little bit of rain here or there, but I don't like when it doesn't stop all day long! I have a routine with my mom where we take a nice long walk every evening. If it doesn't stop raining then we are not going to be able to go. Since it's raining, it's just going to be a cozy day inside. I have to write two poems for my Creative Writing class and then do a free writing exercise. If I can get that done early enough I am going to help my mom with dinner. She is making homemade spaghetti and meatballs which is one of my favorites. My family is going to get the new Brad Pitt movie tonight from Redbox. I usually like his movies so hopefully it's a good one.

Tomorrow the weather is supposed to clear up, although it is going to be pretty chilly. My mom, brother, and myself have plans to go and buy some fall decorations. My mom and I picked up gourds at the supermarket yesterday but we are waiting to put them out until we get some pumpkins, hay, and mums. I always love to decorate for the fall because it is just a reminder that Christmas is literally right around the corner. I also have plans to watch QVC's Joy of Christmas tonight and tomorrow - woo hoo! It is tonight from 11 PM - midnight and tomorrow from midnight - 1 AM, 2 - 5 AM, 8 - 9 AM, and 6 - 8 PM. I think I will mostly be watching tonight for an hour and then tomorrow in the evening. I don't think I will be able to stay awake for the 2 - 5 AM window!

My dad just let me know that he made some lunch so I am going to go eat and then try to get these poems done. I am so not a poem person. I would much rather write a short story!

Have a good afternoon!

Hope it stops raining for you soon!!! Good Luck with the homework and enjoy your weekend!!!!

The final day of the International Plowing Match in Mitchell has been cancelled. Officials say due to torrential rain the site is closed and no one will be permitted entry for at least 24 hours. They add the decision was made for the safety of visitors, exhibitors, and volunteers. There’s been no word on whether any events will go forward tomorrow instead. Environment Canada has issued a rainfall warning for the area, with about 15 to 25 mm of rain expected today.


In total we got about 160 mm (6 1/2 inches) of rain from 7pm last night to 11am this morning. Thankfully it has finally stopped. Maybe they can continue with the events. I know that Savor Stratford and the fall fair have started up again and people are showing up for them.

Wow!!!! With that much rain, I'm surprised you don't need a boat to get around!!!!

Okay, now that I'm done at the orchard, I need to find the energy to go the grocery store. Hmm, better put a pot of coffee on.

Good afternoon everyone!

Stopping in for a quick hello. No news on the home front as of yet. I visited a nice place yesterday. It had everything we wanted except location. We would be willing to move a couple blocks outside our desired radius, however, this home was a few doors down from drug houses, which happen to be across the street of each other. Too bad, really.

In other news, I received an email yesterday that pretty much made my day! About a month ago, I had an interview in Brockville, ON for a position on the Supply Teacher list at the Upper Canada District School Board, which covers a lot of the outskirts of Ottawa and as far away as about an 1 1/2 hour drive. Anyway, I received an email yesterday saying that they are proud to offer me a spot on the Secondary Supply List! It is my first official teaching position since graduating in 2011. It only took just over two years... Wow. Needless to say, I am very excited for this opportunity. I do not know how many calls I will receive, but it will be great to be in the classroom again...even on a substitute basis. Aside from having to drive a bit to substitute, the only real downfall is that I will now need to find a flexible job.

In terms of today, there isn't much happening. It's been raining for much of the day. We had a very wet practice this morning. It was a little rough, but we certainly needed it to prepare for regionals next weekend in Boston. A nice way to end our weekend practices for the year and a nice way to send off the last day of Summer. Apparently, it's a late Fall this year as it isn't scheduled to begin until tomorrow. As always, no complaints here! I am ready for a new season and I am sure we're all looking for to the Season!

Kim and I visited Wal-Mart yesterday. Their seasonal section let me a little disappointed. I can recall a few years ago stumbling across Christmas items around Labour Day weekend. Not so much this year. The usual Halloween stuff was out in full swing and the final aisle, which sometimes has Christmas stuff creep in a little early, was still filled with on-sale barbecues. Soon enough, I guess! Soon enough.

Well, I think I should figure out some plans for the rest of the day. It would be nice to get out of the house, but the rain seems to be putting a damper on some options.

Have a great Saturday, everyone! The weekend is here! Tomorrow, a new season will be here. A season that brings in the beginning of our favourite Season! So much lies ahead.

Big Congrats on the teaching position, and making the Secondary Supply list, brent!! So happy for you! I bet the rest will fall into place, and you'll find a great job willing to work with your schedule.



Hope you find the perfect place soon, one with all that you & Kim want, and in a primary location too.
I will keep you guys in my prayers!

Well it looks like that last day of summer 2013 will be spent watching Home alone 1 and 2! It may as well be fall to me because leaves are starting to fall and its chilly I guess Fall officially comes in tomorrow,I will drag out my décor next weekend and go buy some more during the first full week of October. I also meant to tell yall that some folks on my street have their Halloween stuff already out and that has me excited. October is almost here and when it arrives things really start moving fast and we have to savor every minute!!! Have a good day everyone!
