What’s Happening On May 9/2022

Don’t Kill The Dandelions, They are Here to Help Us!

And it is a good morning. The sun is shinning down upon us, hardly no wind to speak of, and things are warming up nicely. And on top of all that, all the mothers, had a great Mother’s Day. At least weather wise. What can be better than that. Not much in my eyes. Highway 522 is busy these days and getting busier every day. It is nice travelling weather, if you can afford the gas.

On another note, I managed to almost finish off our road-side stand yesterday. I just have to do some painting on the old wheels and then will see if we can roll it out front. It will be nice to have a spot that we can sell some veggies and things this summer on. And with the new steel roof it should keep the sun off things too.

Today I will finish it up and see about rototilling up my vegetable gardens. So with them things in mind, they should keep me busy for most of the day. Have a great day and stay safe. GW

This Single Tulip has been showing its beauty every spring now for 18 years. All by itself, close to the house. Click on Picture to Enlarge!

It’s another sunny morning here in Port Loring, Ontario. It has warmed up since yesterday morning, with the temperature sitting at 9.4 C | 48.92 F. It will warm up a lot more as the day progresses. Which will make it the best day so far this year weather wise. But in saying that, I am sure there will be a lot more down the road away’s. I am looking forward to getting out in our boat with my fishing buddy Barry this year. I haven’t been out for two years with this virus. My wife and I did try last fall, but had some boat and trailer problems which stopped us. They are fixed now so should be good to go, once I uncover it and get it ready.

No Black Flies or Mosquitoes as yet.

Highway 522 was very busy yesterday with all kinds of vehicles going and coming. Most I haven’t seen before. The LCBO was the busiest store in town. Ha ha. On another note, the grass is sure greening up. I suspect by the way it is growing we will be mowing it next week. I still haven’t seen if our mowers are working as yet, as I have been too busy working on this road-side stand. I have it almost ready, and I am thinking I might finish it today. I have to put the roof on yet, along with finishing up a few small things. I will be happy to see the end of it. Ha Ha.

Other than people are still getting sick from this virus here in town, not much else happening. Stay safe and have a great day. GW

Well … Starting things off this morning, we are in the midst of lots of sunshine. Which makes me smile. The temperature waking up was sitting at 4.8 C | 40.64 F. A bit cool, but it will warm up as the morning moves forward. And on top of all that, it will get even warmer starting tomorrow. The not so good news is the Black Flies aren’t that far off. None so far. Highway 522 is picking up traffic wise and I suspect it will get a lot busier now for the rest of the summer with folks wanting to get out of the cities. It seems Nature is what they are in need of. At least in the summer months. Winter is for locals, a few snowmobiles and hunters.

On another note, I got lots done on this trailer roadside-stand I have been working on for the past few days. Today I will be installing the roof-rafters and steel roofing. Should look nice when all said and done.

Once that is finished up I will get to work rototilling up our vegetable gardens and see if my lawn mowers will run. You never know about equipment after sitting all winter.

With that I am off for a boiled egg and a piece of toast my lovely wife is making for me, and will then get to work. It’s still a touch cool out there at the moment. Have a great weekend and stay safe. There is still a lot of sickness in our area.

What’s Happening April 30/2022

Good Morning! It’s another sunny morning here in Port Loring, Ontario. It is a touch cool though, with the temperature getting out of bed sitting at 5.3 C | 41.54 F. But we still have a bit of ice on top of my rain barrel, so it did get down to below freezing through the night. Highway 522 is bare and dry this morning, which will make travelling good today. The blackflies aren’t annoying anyone as yet, but once it stays warm, that will change.

On another note, I worked all day in my woodworking shop yesterday. Today, however, my wife and I will be working in our gardens, moving some plants and things. And I am sure we will be taking some time to do some front porch sittin’. Yesterday we had our morning coffee sitting in the sunshine, which was nice. We both enjoy the outside and taking in what nature has to offer, when things warm up.

With that, I am off for a bowl of cereal this morning and will then see what the day has in store, other than what we have planned. I am leaning towards opening our small cottage today too. Take care and stay safe. More and more people are getting sick with this virus, here in town every day. GW

Where It All comes together

Some have asked where do I write my stories and if I would share my set-up. Well, truth be told, it isn’t anything special. It also should be noted that it isn’t always this clean, as usually I have notes and things all over the place.
