What’s Happening on April 14/2023

Good Morning!

And a fine morning it is. The sun is shinning, and it’s beginning to warm up nicely. We will be having three more days of summer weather before it starts to cool back down. So if you have things that need attending outside, today and the weekend is the time to be doing them. Pretty well all of our snow has left us, but there is a wee bit on the north side of things.

Yesterday, as the day before, my lovely wife and I have been steadily working outside trimming a few trees along with doing some raking. Today we will do the same. My wife loves her gardens. We did however take some time to relax in the sun and will do so once again today. We try and take advantage of any nice weather that is sent our way.

The grass is also starting to turn green, which is nice to see, and the Finches have returned for another year. We did buy a bag of Finch food while in town the other day. But I am not sure if it is any good, as the birds don’t seem to like it. Could be that it is too old. Par for the course these days, as everything you buy is far from being what it was like years ago. My wife and I do get a lot of enjoyment watching them throughout the year.

On another note, we have also noticed the buds starting on top of the Maple trees, so it won’t be long before we start to see the spring colours. They are as nice as the fall if you take the time to notice.

Other than that, not much going on in and around our small town. It’s not as it used to be, where everyone knew everyone. Now when you go to the store, nobody even says hello to you, other than from a few old timers. Progress is what they refer it to. Ha ha. But to be fair, there are a lot of newcomers to the area who don’t really know anyone, and coming from a city life, haven’t had much time to adjust to the rural way of life. Let’s hope they do, but I fear the majority won’t, given how much Canada has changed from its former self. Not entirely for the better, either, in my opinion.

With that, I am off for a bowl of cereal and will then see what the day has in store. Life is always a mystery.

Have a great day and stay safe. GW
