Morning Chat Jan 10/2021

Good Morning! It’s a cloudy frosty morning here for Port Loring, Ontario Canada. Kind of unusual for this time of year. But it is nice to see with the trees all covered with white frost. Highway 522 is bare and dry, and if we are lucky we could see some sunshine on and off throughout the day. Which will make it nicer. Temperatures are still cool this morning sitting at -16.4 C | 2.48 F. It will warm up a wee bit as the day moves forward. On another note I have been keeping busy in my woodworking shop working away on a new wall cabinet for our cottage to be. It’s coming along and should be finished today, other than staining and painting, which I will get too in a day or so. Other than that not much happening in our small community these days. With that I am off once again for my morning cup of tea with my lovely wife and will then see what the day has in store. Take care and stay safe. It’s getting pretty bad out there virus wise these days.

Morning Chat Jan 9/2021

Good Morning! We are having a touch of sunshine this morning, but it is cold. The temperature getting out of the sack was sitting at -16 C | 3.2 F. It will warm up a bit but not much. This is the kind of weather where your firewood starts to pay for itself. The other alternatives to wood heat, are still too high in price to talk about. LOL Looking out Highway 522 is bare and dry this morning. It also has been quite quiet, not much traffic … as, well, simply put, with the stores being closed down no one has any place to go. Which I believe is a good thing with this virus now well over the 4000 mark a day here in Ontario alone. But as I say there is no one to blame, than the people themselves. The old saying is … give certain folks enough rope they eventually hang themselves. The trouble with that saying in this instance, is that they take a lot of others with them that shouldn’t be taken. Such is that. On another note I have been busy in the woodworking shop these days working on projects for spring. Not for our store mind ya, as opening that would be inviting this virus to our door. The things I am working on is for us and our new cottage. The thing I like about it, is that it keeps my mind focused on what is important in life. With that bit of info under your hat I am off for my morning cup of tea with my lovely wife and a bowl of oatmeal. After that I will see what the day has in store, other than what I have planned. You just never know. Take care, and do what’s right.

Episode 55: Normal Day occurrences ON THE FARM

Episode 55: Hi folks. I hope you all are well. Ruth and I are making out okay so far these days. Not much has really changed … other than maybe not going on a few trips here and there and visiting with our boys. But, we chat on the phone all the time. Today I have another podcast lined up for you relating to a few things that took place on the farm years ago. I hope you enjoy … Normal Day Occurrences on the Farm. Take care and stay safe.

Good Morning! It’s a cold morning here In Port Loring Ontario, Canada. The sun is going to be with us for most of the day, which will make things a bit nicer to be outside. Temperatures getting out of bed were sitting at -16.9 C | 1.58. Highway 522 is bare and dry, and quiet these days with everything being closed down. Yesterday they announced that we will be shut down up here in the north for another two weeks. Which is a good thing. I am hoping they will extend it even further after that. As things are getting pretty bad. They need to keep things closed up tight till the vaccine is made available to everyone. Then things should start to improve. The thing is … we have to give up some things to get out of this mess. No other way. Yesterday I started to work in the shop but got distracted with some things here in the house. Today I think I will be working in the woodworking shop on some things I have in the works. I just put some more wood in the shop stove that I have been keeping going since Christmas. Feels good going into a warm shop. I also lit the wood furnace here in the house which is really nice. There is nothing like the warmth that comes off of wood heat. Especially on cold days like today. With that I am heading for my morning cup of coffee with my lovely wife and will then see what the day has in store. Stay safe and do what’s right for you, family and friends.
