Another Purchase

Last night was the second night that we got to sleep with the windows open and our Fantastik Fan on.

This morning was warm and partly sunny with a nice breeze for our walk. I say ‘our’ because Jean from next door accompanied me. The walk went very quickly as we were chatting the whole way.

This morning our UPS Backup system appeared to have crapped out on us so since we have three computers relying on it, we drove into Ottawa to get another one. The prices on these units have come down substantially since we bought ours when Gordon had his office in the house. I also looked in to replacing the battery in my laptop. It seems to last a little over a year and then its toast so in order to use it I have to keep it plugged in all the time. The guy at Cyber Computer in Bells Corners is calling me back with a price tomorrow. The last one I replaced was on warranty, this one isn’t.

We didn’t stay long in Ottawa as the skies were looking very dark rather like a thunderstorm was imminent. The weather forecaster on TV last night said that there was a 40% chance of rain this afternoon due to a cold front coming in. Since the thermometer in the truck registered 32C (90F), a cold front to lower the temperature a bit would be nice. Seems like just a few days ago I was complaining that it was too cold! We did have some thunder but nothing else materialized although it did cool down and the wind picked up a bit. Gordon had put the awning up when we got back from Ottawa.

The lilacs are really coming into bloom here!
