It’s a cool, wet morning here, waking up. We did have a lot of heavy rain yesterday and through the night. However, in saying that things will be gin to clear, and tomorrow we should see some sunshine which will be nice. We need the rain with the trees and plants heading into winter, but we also need some sunshine, which strengthens them, along with us humans.
Highway 522: It has been relatively quiet the past few days with a lot of campers, tourists and cottagers heading back to the cities, leaving us here in cottage country for another year to fend for ourselves, which we always manage to do as most of us are self-reliant.
On another note, my lovely wife and I decided to take a trip to North Bay yesterday to pick up some groceries and things. I have to tell you, it was challenging getting in and out of the stores with the heavy rain. And of all days, I forgot my damn hat. Ha ha. But we made do and managed to get most everything we went for. Things are sure expensive these days. Once we picked up our items, we had lunch in our car while people watching and then poured ourselves a cup of coffee and headed on home, taking in what nature had to offer along our way. All in all, it was a good day, other than spending money and the rain.
Today ... I am not sure what we will be doing with it being so wet and all. I might bring up an old boat trailer I have had for a while. It needs a lot of work and if the axles are good I will fix them and then convert it into a trailer that I can haul things around on. If that don’t work out, I will take it apart and use the steel for other things. You can never have enough old rusty steel lying around to fix or make things out of. At any rate, here again we will see how that works out. I do however, still have to clean up our vegetable gardens, but we still have some tomatoes, cucumbers and things left. Folks are still wanting them that I put on our trailer out front of our home. My wife and I have been enjoying them daily as it won’t be long before you can’t get them anymore, or at least the ones that look, tastes and smells like a tomato. But we do have lots in our freezer and done up in jars, which will sure be nice this winter. Along with a lot of other things.
So … with that I am off for an Egg McMuffin, with cheese, crispy bacon, portabella mushrooms, tomato and lettuce, that my little woman is putting together for me. She is one great cook, that woman of mine. It’s better than any you can buy at a restaurant, that’s for sure. And along with that, it gives a feller the protein he needs to get through a day. It’s almost … healthy, too. Ha ha. Now where did I put that damn hat of mine?
Have a good day, make it a good day! GW
