10 weeks to go...

Okay, I promise to try not to blog too much about wedding preparations. Luckily, there's only 10 weeks until the wedding, so soon you won't be reading about all the nitty gritty little details.

Life's been very busy these days. Soon things will be getting busier though. As soon as the first boat sails, the island will be infested with tourists. Hmm...perhaps infested isn't the best word. Yes, the island will be filled with tourists.

Right now, I just enjoy spending as much quality time alone with John before the mad rush begins. Lately, I've been either beautifying our home (yes, it does look fab! I just love our cute little house in the country!) or helping John with his work. My hubby-to-be's got me helping him out in the bush. Yes, me... City Girl! I've been taught how to swing an axe, split fire wood, pile fire wood, clean logs with an axe to make cedar rail fences...whoooo yeah. Then there's helping out with chores. By chores I mean working in the barn. The cows are all due to deliver now and so far we've got 9 very beautiful little calves. Among them are my favorites: a very pretty little white one and a gorgeous chocolate colored one.

A year or two ago and I don't think you'd catch me enjoying being so close to smelly barns, but for some reason I really love being close to the land and close to nature. Life is so beautiful. Funny how life tosses you some curve balls. It's interesting to see the way our story unfolds. I sometimes laugh to myself, thinking how funny it is that City Girl is now as far away from the city as I could possibly be :)

Of course, when John gets in from all his work (firefighting, First Response, the farm, the saw mill, the Co-Op), I have his meals ready for him. That slow cooker I got at my bridal shower has done wonders. Easy, delicious, healthy meals and a very happy hubby-to-be!
