It’s another sunny morning here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. However, the heat has left us, which made it nice for sleeping through the night. I am not a real lover of that hot stuff. Highway 522 is slowly getting busier these days with more campers, trucks with 4 Wheelers and boats … and cars moving up and down the highway. But it is much slower than other years. We have been seeing new people drop by our store the past few days, but I am thinking people are hanging onto their money more than other years. I can’t say I blame them as before their trip up to our area was the least of the problem, today with the gas prices the way they are, now it’s a priority. What used to cost fifty or sixty dollars for a tank of gas is now well over a hundred, which adds up when going on a long trip. And on top of all that, the price of furnace oil and propane is sure going to hurt a lot of people this winter. If it gets too bad, I am not sure how some are going to make out, including us. Seniors these days has it hard enough with all this going on.
On another note, my wife and I did manage to get our grass cut yesterday. We both had to take a lot of breaks to get it done. I am thinking we will have to cut back on what we have been cutting and trimming in the coming months with the way things are going health wise. We will see. Today we will take it easy once again.
The bugs haven’t been all that bad these days, which is nice. My vegetable garden is growing leaps and bounds, with fresh lettuce of all kinds on the table come supper time. Sure is tasty. We do need a rain, however, as things are really dry. My pumpkins, zucchini, potatoes and tomatoes are showing off these days, so it won’t be long before we start enjoying them. My cucumbers and squash were slow staring off, but they are coming along now. With that I am off to see if I can eat something and will then see what the day has in store … other than what I have planned. Life is a mystery, for sure … you just never know.
In Closing, I Would Like To Wish You well.
