Happy Birthday Dad!

I’ve been spending a lot of time over at my parents since Nova Scotia let up a bit on restrictions and allowed you to join up with another household within your immediate family. I missed them so much and so did Edward. He’s been over twice. It’s a little harder for him to get over there because he’s still working. It’s so nice though to be able to spend time with them.

My Dad’s birthday is today and since Edward works tonight we went over last night and had supper with them and cake. Tonight I am going back over after I take Edward to work at 4 and Mom and I are going to play around a bit more with the Cricut Explore Air 2 that we bought last weekend.

Mom and I spent a few hours yesterday making my dad a t-shirt, hat, and mug with it. I wish I had pictures of them but I don’t. We are still getting used to the machine but what you can do with it is pretty amazing! We’ve made glasses, mugs, bags, hats, t-shirts, decals, and all kinds of things so far. I will start taking pictures of things we make as we get a little bit better at it.

We’ve been having some beautiful summer-like weather the last few days during the day, but at night we still have frost! The days have been reaching the low 20’s and humid and at night down to 2 or 3. I got sunburned a little bit the other day, nothing major though. It’s been nice though to be able to get out around the yard here and on their property and down at their beach area. My dad’s putting in a 20ft rectangle above ground pool that is I think about 4 or 4 1/2 feet deep in their back yard and we are putting up a smaller round easy set 3-foot deep one here when they are done that one.

Other than that I have been mostly working on my websites, I re-did the theme for this one after accidentally deleting it. I am going to soon be working on our craft store website and Etsy store that we are eventually going to set up. I start school a week from tomorrow. The school has been paid their portion of the loan and I should be getting my portion soon.

I am going to start tomorrow by reading the first chapters in my textbooks. I can’t submit anything until June 1st but I want to get a head start and get that first assignment in each of the 3 courses I am taking this semester maybe done this coming week so they are ready to submit. It’ll give me some time as well to go over the course material more. I have already done that to a point but I want to do it again just to ensure I understand everything so I can get any questions out of the way as soon as I can.

I’m getting more and more excited!

  1. That’s nice that you’ve been able to see your parents, I haven’t seen my partner in about 60 days now, although it’s more of an issue for my partner than me. They’re really struggling without the physical contact. Good luck with your assignment

    1. Thanks, that sucks that you haven’t been able to see your partner for that long. Hopefully soon this will settle down and you will be able to see them.

  2. I like the new look. It is great that you are able to go visit some family now. I would have gone insane if I couldn’t do that. My town never gave such strong restrictions, but I did only stick to family and not go visit friends and stuff. Haha. Our weather has been hell, except the last day, we finally got cooler weather. However, it is going to be one hot summer. Cries.

    1. Thanks Ashley! We are still under some pretty strong restrictions and are only allowed to visit one household but it’s nice for us because both my brother and parents live together. Edwards family is 2 1/2 hours away so it’s more practical for us to visit mine as we are asked not to drive very far to protect our first responders by keeping people off the roads as much as possible and reduce the number of accidents they have to respond too. I am so hoping for a hot summer. I want to go in a pool and the local one is closed so we are putting one up.
