I guess I missed doing a posting yesterday, probably because there isn’t really anything exciting to write about.

Yesterday was cleaning day and I am happy to say we are now nice and clean for a couple more days but it doesn’t take long before it needs to be done again.

John went out and did some running around looking for bits and pieces but I opted not to go – Lowe’s, Home Depot etc. aren’t high on my shopping places!

Today I did three loads of laundry so that is caught up again for a bit, I want to try to get on a Thursday as laundry day routine so hopefully that will work out. The laundromat has put in a lot of new machines so hopefully when it is busy machines will still be available. After the laundry we stopped at Fry’s and picked up a few groceries then it was home again.

This morning before we went out to do laundry we noticed our friend Diane was across the road at Betty’s so we went over to say hi. During the conversation we mentioned that we were surprised the couple from Gravenhurst weren’t here yet as they left about the same time we did. Later, when we got back, Betty came over to tell John that she had just heard that Marvin had had medical problems when they were in Laughlin and they had to go home, not a nice thing to hear. Hopefully he will be okay but don’t know if they will be able to return this winter.

The fellow whose shed John had stored his bike in last spring hasn’t arrived yet either, but fortunately he gave John a key to the shed so John got his bike out this afternoon and it is now ready to get some use. John has missed his bike rides since leaving Kincardine and is looking forward to getting in the groove again. I hope to start water aerobics next week, have to find some water bar bells first so hopefully I can get them on Monday.

This afternoon I did the same as yesterday after I finished cleaning – I sat outside with a good book and enjoyed the sun and warm temperatures.

As you can see it has been a couple of quiet days, just the way we like.

Our daughter Kelly and her husband and daughter were going to Ottawa today to see our grandson who is going to University of Ottawa. Looking at the weather they could be in for a bit of snow so hope they have a safe trip. Our granddaughter is hoping to go to the U of O next fall so they were going down so her brother could giver her a tour of the university.

And so ends another two great gifts of days and we look forward to another good tomorrow.
