Morning Chat July 13/2021

Good Morning! It’s a cloudy day here in Port Loring, Ontario, waking up. We probably will see some rain later on in the day. Highway 522 is very busy these days with folks coming in from all over. My wife and I are staying put, working around our home. For the past week, we have been working on a wrap around deck for our cottage. Which will make it nice for friends and guests when they come to visit. It has been a lot of work as I am using rough lumber, planing it down making my own decking and 2x6s. I figured I saved half of what it would have cost if I was to buy lumber already dressed. With the prices they are charging today for lumber. So things are working out. I hear though that the price has dropped somewhat. I hope it gets back to normal soon. There are a lot of companies taking advantage of us humans. Today I will continue on working away. My lovely wife has been laid up for a few days now with a sore back and leg. All the work we have been doing this year has taken its toll on her. So she is now sitting watching me in a lawn chair under a tree. But she is still moving around a bit making meals and a few light duties. Hard to keep her down. With that, I am off for my morning bowl of cereal and will then get to work. That is, if the rain holds off. I hope so, as one more good day of work should pretty well finish the deck, other than staining it. Take care and stay safe. GW
