Saturday evening to Monday - July 10-12, 2010

Saturday evening

After I posted, we noticed that the sky was looking quite interesting so we decided to go out with our cameras. We headed southwest and stopped first at Otter Lake, then on to two locations in Portland. The first was the yard of the Tourist Bureau and then the Portland Conservation Authority.


It was already 26C (79F) when I got up so I decided not to walk this morning. After breakfast and doing some cleaning we drove out to the Wolford Chapel to see if it was still in use on a Sunday morning. It appears that it is not. We then drove around a lot of back roads between Smiths Falls and Merrickville and took some photos.

Doughnut cloud

Lots of water lilies

There was enough breeze this afternoon and it was cool enough under the big tree that I was able to sit outside on the swing for a while.


It was cooler this morning with a nice breeze so I got to go for my walk again. On my return it was getting rather humid. I did notice that there were some roofers out roofing a neighbour's garage this morning. We haven't seen our contractor lately so I expect it's because he hasn't been able to get a building permit yet.

I called the Better Business Bureau on Bath Fitter and they've had one resolved complaint in the past three years so we're going ahead with the tub and tub wall and an appointment has been made for next week to get 'er done!

Today I went through all my Yahoo Groups and deleted my membership in those that I no longer look at or those with no activity. Quite a job as each one has to be done individually!

This afternoon I went to pick up prescriptions then came back and we went to Rona (Hardware store). It's the only place we haven't gone to price a new sink and vanity in this area. We'll have to wait till Thursday for a price but I think they'll be too expensive. We then stopped at a printing place. We're looking for someone to print out Gordon's photos so he can frame them and put them in the Spotlight on the Rideau (consignment). They printed off a sample and he wasn't happy with it but they did tell us of a place in Perth that has a wide format printer so we went there but they closed at 3 p.m. and it was about 3:30 at that point. We hit a couple of grocery stores that we don't have here in Smiths Falls then returned home.

It was hot again today - 32C (90F).

  1. What lovely sunsets and views you have there.
    Gordon, and you, can take some gorgeous pictures.
    I can see why you settled in such a pretty area.
