Chilly damp day

 M had to work today to catch up from the rain days this past week.

I got out my trusty new weed trimmer and got to yard work. M got out his chain saw and cut down the ancient lilac bushes. The wind had done an awful trip on them. I dragged the branches to the burn pile. At that point it started to drizzle so I came indoors.

Later I walked out to bring in the garbage cans. The darn raccoons made an awful mess! When M came home we went out to Rankin to buy a steel barrel. It has a lid with clamps.

We are trying to plan our vacation. The tentative plan is to go to James Bay. We would drive to Cochrane and get on a train called The Polar Bear Express. That would take us to the remote community  of Moosonee. From there we would take a boat.


  1. Getting things cleaned up is easier than cleaning up after Racoons.
    That sounds like a wonderful trip to take.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  2. That sounds like a good trip to me.

  3. Yard work, aided by a retinue of biting bugs? JG was washing cars and came in chewed. Makes me almost glad I am tied to the house these days.

  4. What a wonderful trip that would be! The grass is sure growing with all this rain.
