Saturday May 22, 2010

Friday was a beautiful sunny, warm day so Gordon got busy and put together the patio set. Only the swing left to go! He also went to Canadian Tire and picked up a ladder that was on sale. When he got back I showed him a weedeater on sale at TSC so he went and got that too.

In the afternoon we decided to go and do something fun so we went to the Lilac Capital of Ontario, a hamlet called Franktown which is between Smiths Falls and Carleton Place. Unfortunately due to the early spring, the lilacs were just about done but they have a place called Lilac Lane where the lilacs line the lane. You can walk it or drive it but it's pretty narrow!

There's an interesting little church in Franktown called Beckwith Rectory

Since we were nearly at Carleton Place we stopped by the RV and picked up the propane tank. I also cleaned out our clothes closets and got some cleaning products. Getting it cleaned out slowly!

This was Friday night's sunset from our front porch

While there we noticed that the grass around the rig where the riding mower can't reach really needs to be cut. We'll take the weedeater over and get that done very soon.

Today I woke up to cloud and showers however after breakfast and piddling around for a while we began to see some hints of sun so off we went to some garage sales. We got a trouble light, a cooler and a cream & sugar set. Gordon is concerned that the one I have for sugar doesn't have a top on it and he's afraid of ants so for $1.00 I got a whole set. We looked at a few others but didn't see anything.

We dropped the stuff off, had lunch and went out again but no luck till we happened by the local Flea Market. Gordon saw that there were some bikes there so we went in and got two bikes for $20 as well as a bunch of picture frames both small and large. Now we have to pick from Gordon's photos to get enlarged to put in them.

It was warm and a bit humid today and we had a thunderstorm and quite a bit of rain around dinnertime but this week is going to be quite hot and sunny.


  1. Great bargains to equip your new abode.
    Some sound like w*rk, though!

  2. Y'all better be careful now or else you'll stuff your home to the gills! :-) Sounds like you're having fun getting settled in and making a great transition from wheels to sticks and bricks. We're glad for you.
