We went from a hole in the hill in May to a house built in September.
Bernie also built a fantastic entry way and is now building us a green house so we can start growing as soon as we get back to Saskatchewan.
Meanwhile we are living in the little shack cabin and I have to tell you that it is COLD in here!! I have a heater going, am wrapped up in a blanket and the temperature right now is about 14c. Usually we have a fire going and if I didn't have to go outside to get the wood, it's 0c out there, I would build one. We usually have wood inside, but I guess Bernie was chilly last night after I went to bed because it's all gone.
This blog is supposed to be about my art and even though I have not been writing about it I have still been creating art. Maybe nothing really interesting to show you but I have kept my creative juices flowing by making ATC's (Art Trading Cards) and trading with other, usually Zentangle, artists. I will quite a big stack of ATC's, will count them and show you some of the really amazing ones real soon.
I took a Cob oven building class this summer. Cob is an old English word for Lump! And a cob oven is made from sand, clay and straw all mixed together - with your feet! Then the cob lumps are built into a round igloo shaped dome that makes the most amazing pizza or bread oven. One day I hope to build one of my own but not until I have figured out where I want to put it in the yard.

I also have my first teaching job here in our new town! Just a Saturday afternoon drawing class but I am really excited to meet some other local artists and creative people. The class is next weekend and I'm so excited that I have had the lesson planned and everything prepared of over a week now.
It's been a really busy summer, just flew by. We had lots of company, all the kids came a couple of times each, our closest neighbor was around quite a bit building his cabin and we have made some great new Nipawin friends.
