That First Impression Though

I don't get to do this kind of blog very often; but since we will all be Putting the Heart Back In Down Town Humboldt on August 22 and 23rd! I figured This is a good opportunity to offer my story to you about my first experience in Down Town Humboldt!

It was actually way before Bolt FM was even a possibility to exist serving Humboldt and area; It was before Obama took his chair in the white house. It was summerish of 2008! I was traveling from Yorkton to Saskatoon on highway 16 when I noticed the hwy 20 junction. Feeling adventurous and in no hurry to get to my destination. I took small detour though Humboldt. It was around 9 o'clock at night and sure enough I was stopped at the Main Street railway crossing


The evening had an endless drizzle as I waited for those CN workers to do there thing and listening to a radio station play Rihanna's "Umbrella" for the 8th time since I got off the Yellow Head. The train had passed and I was on my way to drive down Main Street. The Pavment shined a glossy black as i was looking left and right like what most tourists do. from the night rain and the first thing I noticed besides the the lovely refurbished business buildings was a clean wide open streets. Full, clean green trees and parks!

But that night when I first passed through this community I now call home. The beautiful clock tower, in my mind, is the absolute thing that compliments the down town area, it was my "wow" factor and gave me such a great impression on Humboldt. I remember actually muttering the words to my self  "I could see my self living here"

What is your WOW factor in down town Humboldt?

Mutton Busting 101

DaveDave the ram lamb at Nokomos fair a few years ago. I spent all day bathing and blow drying him. We did come 1st though! So who's laughing now huh!

With many events happening throughout the summer, I thought that it would be a good idea to pick through a couple and go into detail about a specific event.

So today's blog all about mutton busting! Which will be happening on August 2nd in Nokomis. Yes it may be a long-ish drive but this is Canada, everywhere is a long-ish drive.

Mutton busting was first introduced sometime in the 1980s. Kids ages 5-7 weighing less than 55lbs could enter. The sheep is held still, the kid is plopped on their woolly sheep and ride it for at least 6 seconds. Mutton Busting as taken the world by storm, with the event having thousands of kids taking part each year.

I highly doubt 55lbs would hurt a sheep, I live on a sheep farm. I have crowd surfed on sheep. Not on purpose of course. I have also had a sheep run between my legs, and with it being woolly I was stuck, backwards on a galloping sheep. Time of my life! It did not collapse, it trotted away, (bah bah bah) to it's friends and ate grass.


I highly recommend checking out Nokomis fair! The people are great every year. I love the horse shows with barrel racing, pole bending, ya'know all that western stuff. LOVE IT.

Gorgeous Grandma Day

granny

Today is a very special day, today is national gorgeous grandma day!

So let's thank our grandma's for having such a positive influence on our lives.

Grandma's teach us so much as we grow up, of course our parents do too, but grandma's always see both sides of the problem. Grandma's are problem solvers.

She tells wonderful stories of her past, her childhood, mistakes and achievements. Which help us to grow into the strong people we are.

Grandma's always have the best treats ever! and on occasion she spoils us.

When we're sick and our parents are working, she looks after us, reads us stories and feeds us delicious soup.

Grandma's want their children and grand children to follow their dreams, she's supportive and if things don't work out the first time, she'll help you see another way.

Grandma's are wonderful and deserve all the riches in the world. Show your gorgeous grandma you care today and so something special. Clean her house, weed her garden or just simply sit down and have a cup of coffee and listen to her stories.

Just an ordinary morning...

Mud Bogging...What?

MudbogWhoa, I underestimated how much mud was involved...

This weekend is Lake Lenore's Annual Heatwave! All the event's going on throughout the day seem pretty normal to me. Flower competition, antique roadshow, slow pitch tournament and old timer baseball. Fairly straight forward fun stuff!


But, there is one event which I had no idea what it was, mud bogging. So I thought I would do a little bit of research.

Thanks to Wikipedia I found "Mud bogging (also known as mud racing, mud running, mud drags, or mudding) is a form of off-road motor sport popular in Canada and the United States in which the goal is to drive a vehicle through a pit of mud or a track of a set length".

Now how long does this go on for? I mean, driving through a pit of mud may take a while....

So If I had to sum up "Mud Bogging" to my Brit friends, I would probably say "Big powerful trucks or ATV's racing in a heck of a lot of mud, and a whale of a time!"

It sounds like a total blast! I heard to snorkels are even put on the vehicle to prevent mud from clogging up the engine, which is genius! I can't wait to check it out.

I also googled the "Benefits of mud" just in case a roommate, husband, wife etc tell you you're staying outside tonight!

Mud has anti-inflammatory properties - soaking in mud and its minerals can help alleviate aches and muscle pains.

Another mud bath advantage is the soothing effect mud and its minerals -- including sodium, magnesium and potassium -- can have on the skin. Soaking in mud baths can even help relieve the symptoms of many conditions such as psoriasis and rosacea Studies show that mud baths can even improve spinal symptoms.

Saskatchewan summer is a gorgeous time of the year, and even with all the flooding we can still find beauty in our wonderful province!


Here are just a few things to appreciate when feeling down!


It may have rained a heck of a lot but, the fields, trees and gardens are a luscious green.

Thunder storms are amazing here, i love the way the sky lights up!

There are plenty of regional parks and lakes to visit. The heat can get unbearable but a trip to the lake is great to visit with friends and family.

When I drive home I find it really peaceful, the roads are huge here!

Walking/driving by a group of deer in the field, jumping around.

Spending time outside, hanging out in the barn with the horses, reading or anything to get some warm air!

Gardening!

Festivals!

Driving with your windows down and playing your favorite radio station!

A relaxing round of golf.

Getting a sun tan.

Putting your kids artwork on the fridge thanks to some awesome summer programs.

Jogging!

Watching a riders game.

When the Gershicorn laughs the room lights up. Smiles widen and the day is just that much better. Yes even Mondays'. The Gershicorn has a big heart, and values her friends. She also LOVES golf, she can play with her hooves.

Every full moon the Gershicorn walks the streets of Humboldt, adding colour to flowers, stocking candy shelves and creating happy dreams for children and puppies.
