We purchased the new trimming for the shower and I varnished it, no
I do have photos of the installations of the new carpet.
Here is the entrance before..
I make a template before I cut the carpet. I am not known as a
good person for measuring and cutting ;-)
Time to cut, I hope I did the template right!
It fits, we inserted the carpet under the dashboard and under the trim
for the step.
Pretty darn good!
We completed many projects this week.
The forecast for the next few days are for cooler temperature, high of
+14 C with a low of 0 C for the night.
Before we start this part of the blog, I have to inform you about some
changes taking place within our web site.
Informally, the updates were done from Wednesday to Tuesday of
the following week. I am changing this to Monday to Sunday
starting with the update of October 7th. Why? Just to make
it easier for me.
I am correcting/cleaning our pages from 2006,2007,2009 and 2010.
I am also changing the format of those pages. So if you are
trying to access some of them and it does not let you, it is because I
am in the process of changing/fixing them. 2006, 2007 and 2009 are done.
Alright, let's carry on with the next update.
Wednesday October 2 to Sunday October 6, 2013
This is our second night with frost. It went down to -7 C.
We are off to visit the Legislative Building of Saskatchewan. It was
built between October 1904 and October 1912 at a cost of 1,8
million. Imagine what it would cost today!
Saskatchewan was created in 1905 from the North-West Territories.
A firm from Montreal was chosen to design and built the legislative
building. It contains 34 different types of marble from Canada
and the world.
Here we can see the builder of the legislative building, Peter Lyall
looking at the plans and the building.
The view from the top of the stairs towards the park and the lake.
Michèle with a beautiful bird. It was done by an artist from
The tour was really good.
"Before The White Man Came" from John Leman painted in 1933. Over
the years a black deposit covered the painting.
In 2005, a restoration took place and the best cleaning agent to remove
the black grime was human spit!
This painting is from Roger Jerome and is from 2005. It
"Northern Tradition And Transition".
It was unveiled by Her Majesty Queen Elisabeth II for Saskatchewan's

Monday October 7, 2013
The sun is just getting out of bed!
It is 7:30. I noticed that we still have quite a few campers in
We are just waiting for Jérémy to come. He is coming to do some
paperwork and other this related to his transfer and his military house.
His aircraft is arriving in Regina at 6:35 pm.
We are on our way to the airport as the sun is going to bed!
The big arrival area!
And our oldest favorite son is here!
Back at the motorhome, we are catching up on all the news about
Danielle and Gabriel and his transfer.
Jérémy goes to Moose Jaw for the night because he has a room there.
We will go to Moose Jaw tomorrow morning.
Tuesday October 8, 2013
The scenery on our way to Moose Jaw and meet Jérémy.
Harvest is about 80% done in Saskatchewan and it is a very good year
for the farmers.
Jérémy got the key of the house he will get when he gets here.
The upgrades were not finisher, but it gives him an idea and a chance
to take photos for Danielle.
What a nice big backyard they will have. It is all fenced and
they have a garage. WOW!
Jérémy's place is the one on the right. Here is his rental car,
it was the only one they had! Talk about bad luck!
Mother and son at the playground!
Jérémy comes back with us in Regina for diner and the evening. He
is going back to Moose Jaw for the night.
It was a very productive day for Jérémy.
Wednesday October 9, 2013
After Jérémy completed some more stuff in Moose Jaw, he is back with us
in Regina. We do some furniture shopping. Jérémy and
Danielle are thinking about possibly getting a new couch in a few
Just before diner we went out for a walk in the campground.
They have those big rubber ball kids can push around the playground.
Dad and his son!
And we spend some more time talking.
Thursday October 10, 2013
Jérémy is spending the day in Moose Jaw, we are staying in
Regina. He still has a few things to do before he leaves for
Friday October 11, 2013
Jérémy is with us first thing in the morning. He is going back to
Comox and his family today.
Jérémy treats us to a good breakfast.
We have to say our goodbyes, but we will see him, Danielle and Gabriel
on November 4th.
Saturday October 12, 2013
The campground is rapidly emptying out. The snowbirds are taking
flight south. We only have a few snowbirds left and workers.
We did some shopping, reading and TV for the rest of the day.
Sunday October 13, 2013
Brrr! Last night was some cold, -7 C. A +9 C as a high
today, Darn it is cold in October in Saskatchewan.
No photos for today because we did not do anything out of the
ordinary. I dumped the black and gray water. I filled the
fresh water tank. The reason I fill the fresh water tanks is that
the campground shuts the water off and drain the pipes in the evening
to prevent freezing. They turn it back on by 10 am the following
day. This allows us to have water a little later in
October. So, we fill our fresh water tank so we can have water
after 9 pm. If it does not get below - 8 C at night
and a high of +5 during the day, we should have water for a while
If they shut the water permanently, we will be looking for a room or
apartment for rent by the week until Jérémy and his family gets
here. But we are not at that point yet.
Tuesday October 14 and 15, 2013
Monday and Tuesday were just easy days. The nights were cold and
the maximum daytime high were only +8 C.
