Life On and Off an Acreage

In-sights into moving from an Acreage back to Town, plus a few things I find of interest.

Two things that horses are scared about:

1. Things that move
2. Things that don't move

September 21, 2013


The hope that Elaine would be home this weekend kind of diminished. It turns out that she is reacting badly to the Parkinson's medication , Cinnamex. This leaves her very nauseous. To compound it, her thyroid count was way off. She is staying under house arrest in the hospital for another two weeks.

The weather here has turned back to rain and cool, more like the typical fall days, with a high of 14C (57F) and a low around +2C (36F).

Either Brooklyn has realized that she can't catch ducks or the water is getting too cold. After all, she grew up as a city gal. Anyway, this is possibly the last swimming picture of the year.

I have been reading blogs, but not commenting very much and not posting as much as I would like, but there seems to be a shortage of time in the day.

Sorry to hear she is back in the hospital. Irritating that the cure is sometimes worse than the ailment, no wonder there are 3 pages of disclaimers on every drug ad. Take care, season is really changing. Hope she is home soon.

oh Ian, another 2 weeks. Hopefully everything gets sorted out. Sending my thoughts and prayers to you both.

Sending prayers your way. It is hard when a loved one is in the hospital.

Ohhh dear Ian, I'm so so sorry to hear about Elaine tell her I'm sending out beautiful warm prayers for her and you.

Keep her under house arrest until she really is better and can come home to you. You both need that.

In the mean time, keep up the garden, figure out how to bake a nice cake, practice over and over again until it's perfect and you'll have a nice warm welcome for her when the days comes she's back where she belongs.

For now my friend. Wonderful hugs and thanks for still believing in me and adding comments on my blog.

Wonderful blessed hugs from my heart to yours.

Must be so different with just you at home, more work to do, more worries, and time spent away. I've been praying for Elaine and also you. I was really hoping she'd be able to come home, but I am glad they are taking care of her and not just sending her on her way before she is ready. Lots of hugs from us in Ontario. Thinking of you guys!
