Friday January 29, 2010-Library

It was way too cold to walk this morning -21C (-6F) with a windchill of -36C (-33F) but it was bright and sunny.

I finished my last library book this morning so a trip to the library for restocking was in order. Gordon offered to drive. I wanted to go to the library in Bells Corners which is the one I used to go to when I lived here. I also needed to stop at the bank so that was first on the agenda then off to the library. It was closed. I had to make a stop to pick up some Gaviscon as well then we stopped by the Nepean Sailing Club to see about taking some photos.

We stopped at another couple of spots as well and took some photos of these fishing huts on the Ottawa River. Note the little RV trailer on the ice.

This is Lois Ave. I thought it should be called Lois Lane.

On the way back to Kanata we stopped at another library - not open till 1 p.m. so we went to the Hazeldean Mall and Gordon had a coffee while I picked up a few items, one of which was Smucker's grape jelly so Gordon could have a peanut butter and jelly sandwich with the bread I made yesterday. We put in time there till the library was open and I got restocked. I should be good for a couple more weeks now.

I got an email from Nancy yesterday. She's having a good time and really likes the resort she's staying in. Unfortunately I wasn't online when she was so I couldn't talk to her on Yahoo. She said it cost $10 for 20 minutes to get online.

This afternoon was spent just doing the usual - TV. I've become addicted to The Doctors and Dr. Oz!


  1. Sandra, do people fish out of that RV parked on the ice? I have heard that there is a hole in the fishing shacks to fish out of. We've never lived where it was icy like that. It looks really cold. I hope you get your passport stuff straightened out for next winter.

  2. Ohhh being out on the ice gives me the heebie jeebies! That pic of the travel trailer just makes me shudder! Even with 12-16 inch thick ice around here, I still don't like it. We live on a frozen river and I won't even walk out on there. My family all ice fishes and have shacks and drive their trucks out on the ice. Not me. (big chicken)
