Only in Saskatchewan do I get time to paint my own toenails (for the first time since August, mind you), and not only that, but Rachel gets her toenails painted for the first time ever!
Only in Saskatchewan do Sam and Rachel get to ride in the big tractor with Opa and clear snow off the driveway.
Only in Saskatchewan do we get to look at all the calendars we've made for Oma and Opa through the years, including the calendar for 2014 which only arrived on the last day we were there. Whew.
Only in Saskatchewan do Sam and Opa grind kamut to make flour and then use that flour to make fresh pasta for supper.
Only in Saskatchewan do we read an article about Canadian cold weather jackets becoming fashion statements in Japan (Unfortunately I can't find the link to the article. Dad, if you're reading, can you help me out???) and then my dad pulls his out of the closet to demonstrate how ridiculously warm, and unfashionable, these things are. They are survival jackets people. They ask for your blood type as basic information.
But most importantly, it's only in Saskatchewan (and Ontario sometimes!), where we get to spend so much time with Oma and Opa. And we can't wait until we can do it again!
