Stormy weather suited me just fine, but by 3 in the morning, the house was shaking and the babe was screaming. I have no idea how the power didn't go out, but luckily we were spared. We did lose a tree, as you can see from the photo above. It completely fell down within an hour of taking the photo. Our ocean view is enhanced by a tree's width. Stormy could also describe things with my brother, as you well know. But he called on Friday, and even though his tone was curt, he made the call. There is a small crack, an opening from which we will try to make things well again.

Mr. C and my older son went hiking and doing outdoorsy things in the 100 km/h winds, while the babe and I went shopping (yes! the Gods listened and Nova Scotia now has Sunday shopping). We sauntered through the bookstore and I bought Malika Oufkir's second book, and loaded up on books for the boys (including comics for the oldest). When we got home, I finished off my sons's new bedroom. It feels like I have been working on it forever, but it now means that he and the babe will each have their own room.


And, since Halloween is only two days away, we figured we had better start carving some pumpkins. So...Ta-Da again....And now, although it is only 8:30, it feels like 9:30 because of the g-d time change. Don't even get me started on that topic.

Here's to a good week ahead, friends.

    We started daylight savings time on Sunday morning ... bit confusing initially, but you get used to it. I like having the extra light in the evening, allows us all to do more stuff together outdoors.
    Your stormy weather is a bit frightening, although the view without that tree is spectacular.
    Hope you have a wonderful week.
    Take care, Meow

    So glad that stormy weather just bothered the tree. The older I get. the more frightened I am of storms. I guess as you grow older you don't feel invincable any more.

    That room is a dream. How lucky is your little one to have such a talented mom.

    I am happy your brother contacted you. He loves you cause he is taking those steps to keep in touch...

    I like the daylight savings in the spring, but it is the fall one that gets me; it is dark by nearly 5pm!

    Usually, I love a good storm, but this one has lasted for going on three days now! Enough with the wind! I hope your weather is warm and sunny.

    You were right; he did call....I e-mailed you.
    I realized after I posted the photo of the bedroom, that there are some small details that are unfinished. I will post more again later this week perhaps. My son loves it; he is like a little prince in his own kingdom!

    We had some of that Friday! Did get a bit "breezy". Great on the phone call, it's definitely a start. Cool room!! Hate time change!! The essence of bureaucratic stupidity!!

    I really like the decorations in the bedroom Cathy. You've done a great job.

    And your brother called which is a start I guess.

    That wasn't a storm Cathy. That was the wind resistance created by my ex mother in law flying past on her broom preparing for Haloween
