Will it ever get back to this?

More than 3 years is a long time to be away from regular maintenance to your home! We had a beautiful lawn when we left. One of the nicest on our street, actually. Do you suppose it will ever get back to this? I don’t know…all our neighbours have been having lawn issues the last couple years and it’s really hard to grow nice green grass BUT we’re gonna try!

Stocked up on lime…

Lots of yard work to do!

At the same time we’ve also been busy cleaning out the house and shed and garage and getting ready for a yard sale.

We need trees cut down in the backyard…these mature ones HAVE to go unfortunately.

Lots to do when you’ve been a way awhile. But it’s getting there! It’s surprising what can be accomplished in a little over a week. It also helps with dealing with jet lag and missing China to be EXTREMELY busy from early morning until bedtime 😛

And David is quite happy…


He’s back to mowing lawn 🙂

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.
