Wednesday June 10, 2009

I was up at 6 a.m. Today was the day we took the 5er into Vos Trailers, our dealer, to get our water pump either fixed or replaced.

Again no walk as I spent that time packing up the RV. We left the campground about 8:20 a.m. and were in lots of time for our 9 a.m. appointment. We got our workorder done and then retired to the showroom where we found a wifi signal so we were happy campers!

The bad news is we needed a new water pump. Since we rarely use it we went for the $100 cheapie rather than the $300 that would have been like our original. Other than that they checked our shackle and it was in great shape. Our batteries were checked as well as one is original and the other is 4 years old and both checked out perfectly. After about 1 1/4 hours we were on our way back to Tranquil Acres and set up by about 11:15 a.m.

After lunch I headed in to Carleton Place to do some grocery shopping. I've been putting it off for days! I think I hit every grocery store in the town!

My back was killing me when I got home. I've got to get back to my morning walk tomorrow. Hopefully that will help.

I took some photos of the new irises that just came out in the last few days here in the campground. They are s pretty. My garden at our house was full of irises as they were my Dad's favourite flower and he had given me all different transplants of them. Sadly they stayed with the house when it was sold.

That's about it for today!


  1. Sorry to hear about your back, Sandra.
    I do a lot of walking around here in the mornings, when we are working. It seems to depend on how many times I go up and down steps, or in and out of vehicles, as to the degree of backache. But I have found out that certain shoes make it worse.

    The irises are really lovely.
    I loved the hollyhocks that were in my grandparents garden.

    I should have taken a picture of my irises. They are purple and white. My neighbor Jill gave them to me a year and a half ago. They really multiplied this year. They were really pretty, too. They make me think of you. :)
