Carrie & Rhythm

Here is a picture of our friend Carrie and her horse Rhythm dropping by for a visit. She didn’t arrive in a car. Years ago I used to have a horse much like Carrie’s, just a touch smaller. Brings back memories for sure.

Morning Report

Well another really nice day here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. The sun is shinning and temperatures waking up were sitting at 11.4 C | 52.52 F. Pretty nice for this time of year. The winds are light coming in from the North West. Yesterday my wife and I did manage to get the lawn cut, install a new chimney top, and clean up the inside pipes and chimney. So we should be good to go when the cold temperatures ease their way into our area. Not that I am looking forward to the colder weather, seems every year it takes a toll on this old body of mine. But there is a remedy for that, and that is go where it is warmer. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee and will see what the day has in store for me. One just never knows.

Today fishing won’t be the greatest with the winds coming in from the North West. If they change fishing will get better. Today I give it a 2-Star Rating out of 5 for catching a few. Good Luck and Stay Safe!

Old Well Pump

Here is a picture of the old well pump that was at my school 69 years ago. Still works as my wife and I dropped by for a drink travelling through the area last year. Good water too still nice, cold and sweet.

Supper Time

Here is a picture of our supper for tonight that my lovely wife made. Two meat pies with leftover roast mixed with all kinds of vegetables. Sure tasty. Also, some fresh broccoli from our garden, with a dip which just makes you want to eat more.

Turtle Picture

Here is a turtle we seen awhile back asking for some help to cross the road. So we stopped and helped him out. For our help I figured we deserved a picture. On another note, take into account that the highway we stopped on was 522, and not busy, so we didn’t cause any accidents with stopping along the highway. On a busy highway I wouldn’t have bothered. Not that I wouldn’t have wanted too.

Morning Report For Port Loring Ontario Canada

What can I say? It’s a beauty of a day here in Port Loring. Sun is shinning with some cooler temperatures. At the time of this post it was sitting at 11C/51F. It will warm up a few degrees but not as warm as yesterday. I think this is perfect weather. We didn’t get the rain they expected yesterday or through the night. I was hoping we would have as things sure need a good watering. Today I will do a bit of mowing where it needs it then, maybe clean my chimney and eve-troughs for winter. The summer is almost over. Man time sure flies. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee and will see what mischief I can get into.

On another note I should mention here I am not on Facebook anymore, or should say for a while, as I have too many things on the go these days. But I will be here on my Blog when I can. GW

Morning Report

So another really nice day here waking up. Temperatures at the moment are sitting 25.8 C | 78.44 F. We could see a bit of rain later on today. Vegetable garden is doing pretty good but it is dry and things are deteriorating a lot. I will however replant some lettuce which will then last till the fall. Bugs are not too bad this time of year. With that I am off for a cup of coffee with my lovely wife and will let the day unfold around me. It sure is a nice day.

Morning report

It’s kind of foggy here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada this morning. It cooled down overnight which I like. Later it will warm up and once the sun does it job the sky will clear. Actually, it is looking like it’s going to be a fantastic week. Today I have some story writing to do for my columns, which will probably keep me busy most the day. But once that is done, it is back working on my Flutes. I was hoping to get them finished before the snow flies. I also have to clean up my vegetable garden a touch and plant some more lettuce. One thing my wife and I enjoy is fresh lettuce for the table all summer long. We have been eating some broccoli lately. It sure is tasty. Deep greenish blue ting, nothing like the store bought stuff. Loaded with enzymes. What could be better. I would say there isn’t any vegetable as healthy to eat as broccoli. With that bit of info, I am off for my morning cup of coffee with my lovely wife, and will let the day unfold around me.

Morning Report

Cloudy morning here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. It looks as if we might get some rain early this morning. We could use some for sure which would save me watering my tomatoes. Temperatures cooled down nicely through the night which made things nice for sleeping. My wife and I did manage to go for a walk this morning which keeps us both fit. Or if nothing else a quiet time away. You have to go early though, or there is an onslaught of trucks and things heading to work. Today I will work away around the house here, I have some cleaning to do in the basement getting things ready for the winters wood. Man time sure goes by fast, here we are now coming into September. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee. Have a good day.

Morning Report

Another great looking day here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. The sun is shinning and temperatures are right where they should be at this time of year. Waking up they were sitting at 11.7 C | 53.06 F. It will warm up some as the day moves forward. My wife and I did go for a walk this morning which should help the old body. Few folks fishing out on the lake. Hardly a ripple in the water. Nice to see. This morning I will do some work in the shop cleaning up a few orders, then maybe if time, I will get back to my Flute making. Then this afternoon will take it a bit easy. Hard life for sure, but … you know? Someone has to do it. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee and a bite to eat and will let the day do as it wishes. Have a great day.
