So it's been a bit, but I just thought I would let you guys in on what's happening out here in Sask. First of all, last weekend Henri came to visit on his way home to Ontario. It was really great to catch up and "show off" the city I'm calling home for these 8 months. It was also really great to just discuss some of the challenges of being away from home, and esp since Henri will be headed overseas on assignment in the late fall to just hang out. Spending time with a familiar face was definitely nice!
The last few weeks on the farm have been relatively quiet since our anniversary fields day. There are some notes to do, recording heights and days to maturation, so lots of days outside, which is great. I've still be riding my bike every day -- a good indicator of how nice the weather has been lately!! Finally some mid to high 20 weather. Love it! There is still the odd thunderstorm and downpour, but we are definitely getting more sun then rain which is fabulous!
Other than that... not much to report (that I can think of at the moment) - life is quiet and relaxing now, which is nice. I'm sure once harvest starts the pace will pick up quite a bit so I'm just enjoying my free time right now (something I don't have a ton of usually in Ontario either!)
I'm getting close to the half-way point of my time out here.... which is neither good nor bad. I love my job and the people out here but I also do hate missing out on family and friend events back home.
