It’s a cloudy, wet morning here in Port Loring. The rain just started, and it sure looks gloomy out there. On days like this, I like to turn on our lights, along with my computer, turn up the heat a notch and enjoy what our home has to offer. TV is fine, but we only watch it in the evening hours. The temperature waking up was sitting at 9.8 C | 49.64 F. It won’t warm up much more than it is now. And with that said … the rain will stay with us for the next 4 days or so, and it is possible that some light snow might enter into the picture off and on. Highway 522 is wet this morning and the traffic has settled down to just a few locals moving around.
On another note, my wife and I decided to head into North Bay yesterday to pick up some groceries and things. It’s the closest for us and have more than we need. Actually, it turned out to be a real nice day, with the sun coming out for most of our trip in and back home. There are still some leaves on the trees, but they are falling fast, and I suspect after the weekend we won’t see them again till next year. Sad to see them go, but the trees do need a rest. While in town, we decided to try out the new Popeye’s Chicken place on Lake shore road for lunch. I have to admit, it was pretty tasty. We had the Crispy Chicken sandwich with some fries as show in the picture above. The only thing I recommend is don’t order large fries if you’re not a big eater, as they give you a lot. So many we had to take over half home. I guess that is okay for some. But for us, it is too much and if you have to warm them back up, they don’t taste all that good. A bit pricey, with our lunch costing us $29.00 for the two of us. Not the healthiest meal either, but we don’t eat out all that much, but once in a while we enjoy trying something new.
While in town, we also picked up some Northern Spy Apples at the Garden centre on Lake shore near Highway 11. They sure are tasty this time of year, and if you’re wanting to make pies, there are no better apples to do it with than the Northern Spy.
After we had lunch, we headed on home, enjoying a perked coffee that my lovely wife prepared for us before we left home. All in all, it was a great day. An expensive day after buying groceries and a few other things, but not much you can do about that. We are lucky to be able to do what we do.
With that I am off for a bowl of oatmeal which will make up for the not so good food we ate yesterday ha ha. Have a great day, make it a great day. GW
In Closing I Would Like To Wish You Well
