What’s Happening In Cottage Country on August 15/2023

Good Morning!

Looking towards the east, we have a red sky this morning, with the sun easing its way out of bed. It should remain with us throughout the day, with a few clouds blocking it off and on. We could also see or smell some smoke today if the winds come in from the east. At the time of this post, it was coming in from the North East. Caused by the smoldering forest fires in Quebec and some parts of Northern Ontario. So, we will have to see how that pans out. For most parts this year, we here in Port Loring have been lucky without hardly any smoke. Which is fine with us.

Bug Report: Everything is good other than a few mosquitoes.

Highway 522 is still quiet these days.

On another note, I did manage to wash, clean, vacuum and wax our vehicle yesterday. It actually took me all morning and part of the afternoon to complete. But I didn’t mind, as it was a nice day, and I am happy I am able to do these things. But in saying that, my old body last night told me about it. We also had a steady stream of customers dropping by our gift shop on the weekend and yesterday, picking up a few things that struck their interest. We do have a unique selection of things, things that you can’t buy in most gift shops. Things that are created and made right here at our home by my lovely wife and I. None of that offshore stuff that you find in pretty well all the gift shops these days. And that is why they come to us, wanting to meet the people that makes these things and purchase a one of a kind piece from the creators themselves. Which is my wife and I.

With that, I am off for a piece of toast and will then get to work cleaning up my old woodworking shop.

Have a great day! GW
