Half Way Bucket List Update

Mum and I are half way through our Nova Scotia visit. So far we've been filling everyday with so many visits and activities it feels like we've been here a month. Next week is going to be just as busy, an while we've been adding downtime and lazy moments, I fear this next week is going to fly and before we know it we will be driving back to Ontario.

Before we left we made a list of all the different places we wanted to go, food we wanted to eat, and things we wanted to do. The list grew from 10 items to a final 36. We've been diligently striking items off the to do list everyday. Here's where we're at with 8 days left in Nova Scotia:
  •  22 items completed

Thought I had missed you.
Are you going to make it to the Wolfville Farmers' Market on Wednesday? For the community supper between 4 pm and 7 pm. Seems to me that is where I met your mother for the first time. (Hi, Mom.)
I have not been well - but staying up too late doesn't help, I'm afraid. And at the moment, we are house-sitting a dog. So my excuse is that it's just "life" getting in the way of doing anything outside the regular stream of things.
Just found out today (although the word has been out for several days) that we do not have an ML for nanowrimo.
Hint, hint. You could come back? ... just for a month?

Take care if I don't get to see you, (And even if I do.)

Best chance to find us will be tonight (Tuesday) at TAN for Donna's Open Mic

Missed Tuesday night at TAN.
Looks like I will not see you - on this trip anyway.
As I wrote somewhere (a PM on FB), I ran into Donna H. Wednesday evening - so I have vicariously met with you.

Sounds like you are having a good time.
(Even if you will need a rest after you get back to Ontario.)
