This is a farm I pass on the way to the camper. It is a gorgeous scene at all times, but especially so when the fields are aglow with dandelions. I know dandelions are the bane of many people's existence, but frankly I love them! So bright and sunny (well not so much when they go to seed, but then they are fun, fluffy balls, so they are still ok in my books!
Valerie and I spent a wonderful day touring around the Valley. We stopped into the Just Us fair trade coffee museum, and the Grand Pre winery (where I am standing in the photo.) Also had a fantastic lunch at Rosie's in Wolfville (chicken quesadilla and salad, greek for me, spinach for Val, both were yummy!!) We wound up back at the camper for a night of conversation and laughter around the bonfire.
Biggest moment of the month: being received as a Candidate for (ordained) Ministry in the United Church of Canada - whoooohooo!!!(Valerie accepted a call to another church beginning in Sept. Will be odd not to worship together every Sunday. Of course, we wouldn't be sharing worship much longer anyway since I'll soon have a student field placement. We'll continue to share our lives, of course, just not our church!)
And those were some of the highlights of my June - along with the engagement of my beautiful Sara (which news I shared a couple entries ago) and my darling Moira's most excellent final marks (such as 94 on her final math exam, my kid is a brainiac!!)
July will bring my last day at work, as I leave behind a 20 odd year accounting career that has begun to suck the life out of my soul. (To be honest, my heart and mind have already left the building, just waiting for my body to exit as well!) Shortly thereafter I head off to bella Italia with my mom, a perfect break between the old life and my new beginning!!
