Back to school and fall weather setting in.

Where are we today ? 
        Well today is the first day of school for lots children here in Ontario. (Do you remember your first day of school after the summer holidays?) Our Host Lea is back into the swing of things driving her school bus for her kids. Think she has been doing this area for over 12 years now and she loves it.
       She does the school run from 8 till 9 am then heads into work at the Home Depot and back here for the afternoon run, bring kids back home. Then somedays she goes back to the Home Depot for another shift, Sure is a busy lady.
Lea's School Bus
      Now at 7:30 am I head on out to Straftord to a Lab for an ultra sound of my heart (doc, doing a follow up). I made it back home so must not be too serious, results go back to Doc and I will get a call.
       Back home  to "Camp Awesome"just to say Hi to Suzie, she heading to New Hamburg to meet up with her mom, and come back here for a quick soup and sandwich lunch.
       They off to Stratford Hospital to visit her Dad (no new changes yet) and I ran a few errands. Then  returned to get a couple things ready for supper whenever Suzie and her mom get back from visiting. But I did manage to get a bit of reading done in the meantime.
reading in the afternoon shade is wonderful
         They got back here about 5 o'clock justin time for an early supper and I am ready. BBQ'd pork chops, creamy whipped potatoes and cooked carrots.
sure hit the spot
         A nice light supper then a snibble (tiny piece) of elderberry pie for desert.
thats a snibble ( I took a tiny bite first)
         Another very busy day again and will see how the rest go, looks like we could be busy here for a while.
          Thanks for stopping on by for  a visit, hope your first day back at school was  good for you too.

  2. Thanks for showing us what a snibble looks like. I like the word. Sort of rolls right off the tongue. I also like the looks of that elderberry pie.

    1. Suzie's mom uses that word a lot kind like a small nibble.

  3. Well, I enjoy the first day of school. It means all the kids are gone and campgrounds are empty except for the wildlife! Yep, it's certainly good here.

  6. It's always a good thing to be able to leave the hospital after any heart test!

    I could go for a few 'snibbles' of that Eldeberry Pie.
