What’s Happening In Cottage Country on June 8. 2023

Good Morning!

It’s a cloudy morning here waking up, and the temperature has dropped a lot with it sitting at 13.4 C | 56.12 F. We could see a wee bit of sunshine, but for most parts the clouds will remain with us pretty well all day. Along with that, we will be in the midst of some smoke caused from the forest fires all around us. So far, the smoke hasn’t been all that bad where we live here in Port Loring Ontario. Kind of depends on which way the wind is blowing. At any rate, there isn’t much we can do about that, other than wear a mask or stay inside if it gets too bad. A good mask that is … like an N 95 made here in Canada, I wouldn’t trust the ones made offshore. But as I say so far it hasn’t been all that bad, and if we get the rain that is closing in on us, things will improve a lot, so lets hope. We could or should see some rain starting on the weekend and on into Monday. I hope so, as our vegetable gardens sure needs a good drink, as does the trees and other plants.

Highway 522 is busy with a lot of campers moving into our area. And it will remain that way throughout the next three months, unless them forest fires keep them at home. We will have to see how that pans out.

Bug Report: Actually the Black Flies, and Mosquitoes haven’t been all that bad for the past few days. Yesterday I sat outside, once again, for most of the day without hardly seeing a one. We will see how it is today, I will let you know after we mow our grass here this morning, Not that there is all that much to mow at the moment, but if we can and able, we like to keep it looking nice around our home.

With that, I am off for another bagel and cheese that my lovely wife is preparing for me, and will then see what my body is capable of doing. Take care and have a great day, make it a great day. My wife and I try hard every day to accomplish that. It’s not been easy for the past few weeks, but we make the best of it. We found you have to keep the mind thinking positive. There are ways of doing that that works quite well. GW
