Morning chat May 22/2021

Good Morning! It’s a rainy day here in Port Loring, Ontario. I suspect the showers will remain with us for most of the day. But in saying that … we do need it. Makes me smile as my lovely wife and I just finished planting our vegetable gardens, and they could use a nice drink to get them settled into their new home. Highway 522 is busy these days with folks moving into our area from all over. Kind of makes me wonder with this virus that is among us where some peoples minds are located. On another note, our firewood that we buy every spring arrived yesterday. Even with the heat I managed to pile half of it. Today we will finish it, as we can work under our lean too which should keep us dry for most parts. Once that is done we can get back to building our second lean-too out behind our house. We started building it a few days ago. So lots to do these days. I would also like to build a deck on our new cottage that we fixed up last year. It would be a nice place for our family and guests to sit on them warm summer days. But with the price of lumber these days I will have to give that some thought before I get all gun ho. LOL It’s amazing really two years ago you could buy a 4×8 sheet of 1/2 inch plywood for $22.00. Today it costs me $70.00. I am thinking there is a lot going on that we don’t know with these price increases these days. At any rate, not much we can do other than only buy what is absolutely necessary. So with that bit of information under your hat … I am off for a bowl of oatmeal and will then see what the day has in store. Take care and stay safe. Even with these vaccines that a lot are getting, things aren’t very good at the moment. Some would like you to believe that, but it isn’t. It’s going to take time for things to improve. And just because some have had the vaccine, is no reason to ease up on the safety measures. The virus is still very deadly.
