Good Morning!

It looks as if we are in for another really nice day here in Cottage Country. The days are pleasant and evenings are nice for sleeping with the windows open. Waking up, the temperature was sitting at 14.8 C | 58.64 F. It will warm up as the day progresses, and we will be having some sunshine today.

Highway 522 is still quite slow for this time of year as a lot of tourists have been forced to stay home these days, being taxed to death so to speak. But the price of some things are slowly starting to fall, being that if they don’t drop their prices … they will soon be out of business. And I suspect some will be out of business even if they do start dropping their prices, as they waited to long.

Bug Report: Working a lot outside these days, I haven’t hardly seen any of them blood sucking parasites, other than a few mosquitoes in certain areas.

On another note, by the time I got breakfast out of the way yesterday, the sun came out and I manged to get our grass cut. It sure looks nice when all said and done. Makes me want to sit outside and take in what Mother Nature has to offer, which is a lot if a person takes the time to enjoy it. Today I will take it easy as I am not feeling up to par, not sure what happened, but having a bit of trouble walking again. I was doing great. I guess I moved or twisted the wrong way yesterday somehow. At any rate I am still moving which is something.

With that I am off for a piece of toast this morning and will then see what the day has in store, or better yet, what I am able to do. My lovely wife is still doing up preserves, yesterday it was Red Pepper Jelly which is superb on crackers with cheese, or some good Polish Sausage, which actually we bought at a Polish store in St Catharines, while visiting our son last weekend, they have the best there is. Today she is going to be making some more cucumber relish, and after that she is going to freeze up some zucchini as she uses it in soups, stews and lasagna’s. Sure is tasty. She has already done up some zucchini relish.

Have a great day! GW
