What’s Happening in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada on Sept 24/2022

It’s another cool morning here in Port Loring. The temperature waking up was sitting at 3.1 C | 37.58 F. It will warm up later on. The sun is shinning though, which should make it a real nice day. Highway 522 was quite busy yesterday. I did notice a lot of campers going up and down the highway. So there are a few still wanting to enjoy the north. Can’t say I blame then either as it is a pretty time of year with all the leaves on the trees changing colors.

On another note my wife and I did manage to get our vegetable garden cleaned out and ready to rototiller up yesterday. We also got the the grass cut and the weed-eating done. Sure looks nice around our home now. Every window you look out of, looks like a park. Actually better than a park.

Today I will see if I can get my old tiller running and if so will do up the garden. I enjoy looking at the soil when all worked up. I guess it brings me back to my days on the farm. I do miss them days.

With that I am off for a bowl of cereal that my lovely wife is making for me and will then see what I can get done. Have a great day.

What’s Happening On Sept 23/2022 In Port Loring, Ontario, Canada

Starting things off, our temperature sure dropped through the night. Waking up it was sitting at 1.3 C | 34.34 F. We also had our second frost. It will warm up a wee bit as the day moves forward. The good news is we will see some sunshine today. Sunshine always makes the day just that much better. The gloomy days seem to make human minds wonder a bit. Highway 522 is picking up a bit traffic wise, with a few tourists not wanting to believe that winter is heading our way. I can’t say I blame them either. I know I’m not ready. I am however getting some of our outside work caught up which makes me smile. Today I will clean up the weeds in our vegetable gardens, and mow some grass that needs to be cut. For the past few days my wife and I have been working on our lean-to that we keep our wood in. It was leaning a bit too much, so we tied a rope and a winch to a tree and pulled it straight. Took some doing. Once we had that looked after we got busy and braced it a lot better than it was. Should be good now for another few years. I hope. The way I was health wise I didn’t think I would get it done. But a little at a time works.

My wife picked the last of our tomatoes, peppers, squash and cucumbers late in the day yesterday. As they were calling for a heavy frost. We didn’t want to loose them as it will be awhile before we get any more good tasting produce. Although my wife did put a lot of tomatoes in the freezer this year. Which will sure be tasty later on this winter. The ones in the stores have no taste what’s so ever. If you didn’t see the tomato before you ate it, you wouldn’t even know they were tomatoes. Like a lot of other veggies too these days. People today go by looks not taste or smells. With that I am off for a bowl of cereal that my lovely wife is making for me and will then see if that grass is dry enough to cut. Stay Safe.

What’s Happening In Port Loring, Ontario, Canada on Sept. 22/2022

It’s another cloudy wet morning here in Port Loring, We are having some light rain at the moment. In saying that the rain should ease off in a bit and if lucky we could see some sunshine. I hope so as I do have some things that need to be attended too outside. I have been doing a few things lately but have to take things easy. Least that is what my lovely wife keeps tellin’ me. Ha ha. Highway 522 is a wee busy these days, with a few people moving around. I see the price of gas has gone down a wee bit, which will let folks travel a bit more. But the cost of things doesn’t help that’s for sure. Groceries are taking the biggest toll on people these days.

The temperature waking up was a bit cool with it sitting at 8.4 C | 47.12 F.

With that I am off for a bowl of cereal and will then see what the day has in store. Stay safe.

Its another cloudy morning here in Port Loring. But in saying that, we should see some sunshine later on. However … tomorrow things will start to cool down a lot. Sign of what’s to come. Highway 522 is quiet which is a norm for this time of year. The temperature getting out of bed was sitting at 15.9 C | 60.62 F.

On another note my wife and I had to go to Sundridge yesterday for an appointment. The trip there and back was pretty good. We noticed that the leaves on the trees were changing a lot, and I suspect we will be in the middle of our fall leaves in another week or so. Especially if things cools down. While there we picked up a few groceries, had our lunch in our car at a small park. You could call it going on a picnic. We usually buy some nice meat at a deli along with some old cheddar cheese, and a few kaiser buns. The wife then puts things together and we enjoy our surroundings with lots of chatting thrown in for good measure. We enjoy doing things like that, more so than going into a restaurant. A lot cheaper too.

After an hour or so we headed on home enjoying a cup of fresh perked coffee that my lovely wife made before we left. Great day for sure. But then again any day we are together is a great day.

With that I am off for a bowl of cereal and will then see if I can get a few things done outside before the cold weather enters into the picture. Stay safe.

It’s another cloudy morning here in Port Loring. However we should see a bit of sunshine as the day moves forward. The temperatures aren’t all that bad with it sitting at 13.8 C | 56.84 F. It will warm up a bit later on. The good thing is we didn’t need to turn on our oil furnace. I do think though that the oil prices have dropped a wee bit. Which is a good thing, with winter edging into the picture. Highway 522 is still quiet these days. Hunters will be moving in shortly. One class of people moves out … another moves in. This kind of country is always changing. Something like our leaves are doing now.

Yesterday being that it rained off and on for most of the day, I worked on a Thanksgiving Podcast. It will be live in a few days. It will be my 101th episode. I am hoping for the winter I will be able to another every week or so. We will see how that turns out.

With that I am off for a bowl of cereal that my lovely wife is making for me, and will then see what the day has in store. Stay safe.
