Visiting Carol and Rick

Morning-47F (8C)
Afternoon-57F (14C)

It rained most of the night but it sure didn't keep me from sleeping. We were both very tired last night. The rain stopped this morning long enough for me to walk. I was glad because I hadn't been out in 2 days and was missing my exercise. Sometimes we see deer at this park in the mornings but it was not to be today. I guess they were hiding from the rain.

We just sat around and relaxed this morning. I coloured my hair and am now dark blonde. This looks more like my natural colour. I had planned to do laundry but was too tired and the back seat of the truck is full of satellite dishes so no room for dirty clothes!

This afternoon we were invited to have dinner with Carol and Rick (Gordon's sister and husband) so we spent most of the afternoon with them. Carol fed us a great dinner of corn, mashed potatoes, fruit salad and roast pork and had even made a gluten free carrot cake for Gordon. Their house is on a small lake and I took some photos of their bird feeders and ducks. Thanks Carol and Rick!

We arrived home around 8:30 p.m. only to find out that our small electric heater had crapped out. Gordon took it apart and sort of got it going but we went out to Walmart to see if we could buy a new one. The response we got was 'It's a seasonal item and we don't have any'. From there we went to Home Depot and basically got the same answer. So right now our heater is running but it will only run facing up so tomorrow we'll have to go out and try to find one maybe at the local hardware store.

We had a few breaks of watery sun today but mostly it rained!

With all our running around, my blog is late tonight!

  1. We had the same thing happen to us on our heater. The next time I found one I bought two of them at $15.00 each. I have a back up all the time and each year I buy a new one to replace the old one.
