More Errands in Ottawa

Not much happened this morning, went for my walk, did my exercises, yadayadayada. This photo is from my walk.

After an early lunch we went in to Ottawa. I had to drop something off at the lab for the doctor, then we went to the Arboretum to see if the trees were changing but not much happening there so stopped at the Ornamental Gardens. There are still a lot of flowers in bloom which is amazing considering we've had frost already but some of them are looking a little worse for wear. Here are some photos.

We stopped to get a few groceries then went to Best Buy to put in some time as we were going to my sister's when she got home from work at 3:30 .m. We sat for a while and watched one of their big flat screen TV's. It made Gordon start thinking of where we could hang one in the RV. NOT!

By the time we arrived at my sister's she was home so we chatted a bit, picked up the mail (including my voter registration card), filled our water jugs and Gordon gave John (brother-in-law) a ride to the garage to pick up his car then we were on our way. We ran into a bit of rush hour traffic but as soon as we got out of the city we moved right along. We did take some back roads to get home though rather than taking the highway.

Today was cloudy and chilly reaching a high of 13C (57F). This week is supposed to be cloudy and rainy. Oh joy!


  1. Great photos!! I love the one with the fly. Now you know why Jim doesn't want to give up his big screen TV. We've had it for 2 yrs, he's going to miss it.

  2. Loved the pics. They are beautiful! Such bright colors still.
