Man, has it been one busy summer!
Nathan’s tutoring is over and he is back in school, and taking Karate! Miranda started yesterday; her last year of University, WOW seems like yesterday she was just moving to Montreal and starting at Concordia. Tomorrow, I start back with a 3-hour lecture in Canadian Historical Art, and then Friday, Studies in Aboriginal Literature, and American Literature up until 1835. I think it is going to be an interesting semester.
A friend of mine asked me last week to come over and take a picture of a field she had planted, just birdseed, which are mostly Sunflower seeds. Up grew this amazing field of sunflowers! She was looking for a natural way to keep the geese out of the hayfields that come through, land in her fields, and destroy the grass in the fall. She is not sure that this is going to work but I think it is a great idea try. Plus she can look out her window and see this cheerful mass of yellow. I will let you know how it turns out. It is right along highway 148, just outside of Thurso heading to Montreal. People just have to stop! To take pictures because it is just a huge mass of yellow! It is very beautiful.
My friend, Barb, is a huge supporter of the Relay for Life. She has a team and participates every year. And so she put up a sign that says, “Pick your own sunflowers and just leave a good will donation in the box for my Relay for life team” And you know what? People are! They stop, pick, and take pictures and leave a donation. Talk about a wonderful idea!
Now isn't this a great idea and a great way to end the summer?
