Once again, here in Port Loring Ontario Canada we are starting another beautiful day. Sun is shinning, hardly a cloud in the sky, what could be better. Temperatures were quite nice for sleeping, and they were sitting at 13.1 C | 55.58 F waking up. It will warm up some as the day progresses. Great weather to do just about anything. Today I will do a bit of mowing and then maybe get back to my Flute making. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee with my lovely wife, and a bite to eat, and then, will enjoy the day for what it is. Have a great day.

Today should be a great day for fishing, I give it a 5 Star Rating out of 5 for catching a few. Don’t forget to stop off at Gohm’s Bait & Tackle, 18B Davis Dr. Port Loring, Ontario. 705-757-2620, for your bait. He also has a lot of other items to offer. I hear he has educated worms. LOL. Good luck and stay safe.

What can I say? Other than it is another beautiful day here in Port Loring Ontario Canada. There is no reason not to do your vacationing here. We have some great Resorts, and Camps to stay in and the fishing is fantastic. Hardly any bugs to annoy you, so hey, what could be better. I don’t think there is any place in Ontario as nice as Port Loring, when it comes to being surrounded by Nature. Temperatures today will stay in the low 70sF/ 21 C. What more can a person ask for? Today I am going to be working in the woodworking shop once again. Yesterday I managed to finish fixing my roof on my Lean-to that covers my firewood. Glad that is done up. Bothers me when things aren’t as they are supposed to be. With that I am off for some bacon and eggs this morning, and then I will enjoy a cup of coffee on the front porch with my lovely wife and take in what Nature has to offer. One thing about our property, it is beautifully laid out surrounded by huge pines. My wife says there isn’t a window you can look out that doesn’t have a picture perfect scene. I agree. Have a great day.

Morning Report

Another really nice day here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. Nothing is nicer than to wake up to pleasant sunny days. Humidity is low and not too much wind. Can’t get much better than that. Cottage country is at its best right now. If you are thinking of taking a summer vacation this is the time to do it. I should say for those that lives in the big cities. For us, it is a daily event. Come winter though it is a different story. LOL Today I am going to finish working on my lean-too that I store my wood in. Fixing the roof is not an easy chore as I am finding out. But I am half-way finished. My vegetable garden is in full swing now with fresh vegetables for the table daily. I will pick a couple of my tomatoes today for lunch and supper. That I am looking forward to. Nothing nicer than tomato sandwiches. Well other than Bologna sandwiches. I am kind of partial to them. I know, it isn’t the best to eat, but I am thinking there is a lot worse. So with that I am off for my morning coffee with my lovely wife, and will see what the day has in store for me. One just never knows. Have a great day.

Morning Report

Another really nice day here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. The sun is shinning and not too hot. Can’t get much better than this. The rest of the week is looking good too. On another note I am thinking I will pick one of my first tomatoes today and have it for lunch. A few more are almost ready as well. So taking today’s date in comparison to last year for picking tomatoes, we are exactly two weeks later. On the good side of things that means we will be eating them for a longer time in the fall. Which, is fine with me. Today I have some work to do on my lean-to where I put in my firewood. It needs a bit of attending. Like anything else time takes its toll on things and a few repairs are needed. Same goes for our bodies. Then when that is finished up I might get back to my Flute making for a bit, then maybe take in some front porch sittin’. The summer is going by fast, and I am thinking we should be taking a bit more advantage of the nice weather. So with that I am off for my morning cup of coffee with my lovely wife, and let the day unfold around me. You never know what might occur in one day. Life sometimes throws a twist in amongst things now and then. Have a great day.

Another really nice day here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. The sun is shinning and temperatures are sitting at15.8 C | 60.44 F. By the looks of things we are going to have a great week weather wise. This morning my wife and I had a nice long walk, taking in what is going on around us. It’s nice to see so many folks fixing up their homes and grounds. Sure wasn’t like that 16 years ago when we moved here. But that is the way things go. With new folks entering into the picture new ideas are formed. Some for the good and some not so good. Such is life. Yesterday we took a drive to North Bay to visit our son and get some of my computer issues looked after. Had a really nice lunch out, picked up some groceries and came on home. Great day for a drive. This morning I will take things easy a bit, relax on the front porch with a coffee or two, maybe do some computer work now I have it working to its fullest potential, thanks to my son. Then this afternoon will let things happen on their own. Why is that? Just Because I Can. Have a great day!

Not to bad of a looking day waking up here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. The sun was shinning and will keep on shinning off and on throughout the day. There is a chance for some early morning showers. Temperatures have cooled down some and it was quite nice throughout the night. I slept with my window open enjoying the fresh air. At the moment temperatures are sitting at 13.8 C | 56.84 F. It will warm up some as the day progresses. But not as warm as yesterday. I would say if I had to pick a time of year I like the most it would be about now. Not many bugs, not to hot and the fishing is good or will get better in a few days. On another note, with this rain we had, the vegetable garden is looking good. I got more colour in my tomato patch and keeping an eye on one that is just about ready for a sandwich or two. Yesterday I got a few stories lined up for the papers and did some computer work. I had a few issues I had to straighten out. Today I will see a bit about mowing around the house here as the rain got the grass to growing once again. So I will get my exercise today, which is a good thing. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee. Have a great day.

I don’t really think fishing will be the greatest today after all the rain we had. I give it a 1 Star Rating out of 5 for catching a few. The winds are light this morning coming in from the North, North West. It might pay to take a rain coat if you’re going to be doing a morning fish. Good Luck and stay safe!

Morning Report

Finally, we are getting some rain here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. I was going to go for a walk but decided against it, which turns out was a good thing. Although my old Dad used to say when it rained and I got wet. “George … you have to learn how to walk between the drops.” I tried, but seems I always got wet for some reason. Maybe I wasn’t doing it right. Anyways it did cool down a touch through the night which made it nice for sleeping. Temperatures waking up were sitting at 18.7 C | 65.66 F. The rain will continue for a while and once it has it out of its system we might see some sunshine. Today I think I will work here on my computer, I have some stories to write up for different papers and magazines. Could say I will take a day off the physical work, and add a day of mental work. It’s actually a good combination to be doing, as keeping the mind active is a good thing. Saves a whole mess of problems down the road away. Not that I am getting old mind ya. LOL. On another note, this rain is making my vegetable garden happy. I thought I seen a grin on a couple of my tomatoes a few minutes ago looking out. Also, I got my rain barrel filled up with some nice soft water for future use. So what some see as a bad day, in reality is a good day. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee with my lovely wife. Have a great day.

Today it won’t be the greatest for fishing with the rain we are having and the wind coming in from the North West. If it eases off it might pick up a bit, but I am thinking it is a good day to stay home. I give it a 2 Star Rating out of 5 for catching a few. Good luck and stay safe. Better yet stay dry.

Morning Report

We all woke up to something different this morning here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada, with fog everywhere. It will be very humid today until the sun comes out, which it should do later on. Tomorrow we hopefully will see a bit of rain as things sure need it. Temperatures waking up were sitting at 16.8 C | 62.24 F. It will warm up as the day progresses. This morning I will hill up my tomatoes a wee bit and put some grass cuttings around them. Then give them a drink. They are a nice size, but still a long way to ripening. Reason being I didn’t get them planted till June 1st this year. Not much you can do about that. I do have a couple that is showing some colour. On the good side of this dry weather, the grass has slowed down a lot which makes me smile, as we don’t have to cut it as often. After I get my garden done I will get back to filling some small orders and then see if I can finish up the Flute I started yesterday. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee and will see what the day has in store for me, other than what I want to do. Have a great day.

No sunshine this morning here in Port Loring. Ontario. Canada. Temperatures waking up were sitting at 19.6 C | 67.28 F. It looks like we are going to get some much-needed rain today and into tonight. I hope so our garden is in need. The trees around our place would also like a drink I suspect. Today I will be working away in the woodworking shop on some small orders then once finished I will get back to my Flutes. I have 25 on the go this time, which will make a nice show for next summer in our store. Our lettuce in our vegetable garden is slowly ending, so once it cools down a wee bit I will plant some more, which then should last till Fall. Zucchini is growing leaps and bounds these days along with the cucumbers, and we been enjoying them daily. Ruth cuts them up, and we use it with other vegetables for dippers in her home made dressings. Tastes pretty good. Tomatoes are just starting to turn a bit yellow as we planted mostly low acid ones this spring. It will be interesting to see how they turn out. Good size I will say that. Can’t wait till they are ready. Nothing like fresh tomato sandwiches. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee with my lovely wife, and will see what the day has in store. Have a great day.

Today should be great for catching a few if you get out there before it rains. Winds are coming in from the South West, which when conditions are good makes for some good fishing. Today I give it a 4 Star Rating out of 5 for catching a few. If, you do head on out, make sure you take a rain coat. I am thinking it might be needed. Stay safe and good luck!

Looks like another really nice day shaping up for us here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. The sun is slowly making it’s way up in the East. To me there is nothing nicer than to watch the sun rise each morning. I like it better than the setting sun. Temperatures through the night were sitting around 11.5 C | 52.7 F. Great sleeping weather. Today it will get warm, warmer than yesterday. Then cool off with maybe some rain tomorrow. Today I will carry on with my Flute making and finishing up a few sign orders my wife took in yesterday. Actually we had a busy day yesterday. Seemed it was motorcycle day as we had quite a few bikers drop by for a visit and pick up a few things in our store. I guess that is what motivated me into posting some pictures of motorcycles yesterday. At any rate it was a great day. I also managed to stain the back deck, so one more thing off the list of things to do. With that I am off for my morning walk with my lovely wife, then will have a cup of coffee and see what mischief I can get into.

Today everything points to not being the greatest day for fishing. But I have a sneaking suspicion it might be pretty good. With the winds coming in from the South East, more so from the south could make things interesting. With a chance of rain tomorrow that will help a bit more. So all in all I think there is a pretty good chance of getting some fish in the boat today. I give it a 3 Star Rating out of 5 for catching a few. Good Luck!

Another really nice day here in Port Loring Ontario, Canada. Sun is shinning birds are making a noise and temperatures have cooled down to where it makes a fellow want to do some front porch sittin”. Which I might just do today, later on. Temperatures were sitting at 13 C | 55.4 F. Today I will get busy and stain my back deck as it is good to do while things are dry. Especially on the north side of the house where the sun doesn’t hit it that often. Then I will get back to my shop work as I have numerous small orders to bring together. Then I will work on my Flutes. And here I said awhile back I had all my chores done that needed doing. HMM. With that I am off for a cup of fresh perked coffee with my lovely wife and will see what else the day has in store for me. Sometimes I head in one direction and don’t make it as other things come into play. Such is life. But I like it that way, makes things more interesting.

The sun is shinning once again here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. Temperatures were nice through the evening hours which made it really nice for sleeping. Waking up they were sitting at 57F/13C. It won’t be as hot today. The next few days will remain cooler than what we have been having. Yesterday I did manage to mow our grass which makes things look much nicer. The grass has slowed down some, but I did manage to get two bags of cuttings for my tomatoes. This time of year they are in need of some nourishment, which makes the tomatoes taste that much better. I have some that are the right size but still green. Shouldn’t be long, and we will be having fresh tomato sandwiches for lunch. Today I will stain the back deck. After that my chores for the summer that needed doing are all finished. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee on the front porch. We hate to not take advantage of this nice weather.

Another great looking day here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. Sun is shinning and temperatures were sitting at a comfortable 18.9 C | 66.02 F. Hard to beat that. It will warm up some as the day moves forward. Today I have some shop work to do along with a bit of mowing, so all in all it is enough to keep me busy. Yesterday we went to North Bay for some supplies. Had a great day other than spending money. But what can you do. We also had lunch with our son, chatted for a spell then arrived back home around 4:00 PM. I have to say the stores were swamped with customers. I don’t think anyone works anymore. But it is summer and there is a lot of vacationers blending into the picture. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee. Have a great day.

Another sunny nice day here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. It is nice to have cooler temperatures for sleeping. I actually had to shut some windows through the night being a touch too cool. Not complaining mind ya. Temperatures waking up were sitting at 18.9 C | 66.02 F. It will warm up as the day moves forward but it will be a really nice day. The weekend is looking good too other than a slight chance of a shower on Saturday. Today I have some work to do on my back deck fixing a few boards along with a coat of sealer. Then I will get back to my Flute making. I am starting to make some progress finally. There are so many steps in making them, at first it seems like you are going nowhere. But, such is life. Black flies, mosquitoes in our area are tolerable now. Horse and deer flies are annoying in certain areas. All in all not so bad. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee and then will see what the day has in store for me. I make plans for the day, but the results are another story. Have a great day.
