On Friday, May 17th, I woke around 4:30 when Clemson moved to go out for a piddle. Hmm, Daddy is home. Well, it wasn’t 2 am at least. We went back to sleep, all of us, and it was 7 when I got up, half hour after Bill. He was downstairs with his coffee at the table catching up on some banking from the last couple of days.
|A quiet country drive|
My back was aching again and that was frustrating me. I’m kicking myself for that 3 hours of raking on the hill, 3 weeks ago! It comes and goes. It wasn’t raining outside but I didn’t feel like getting out for a walk anyway. I took some Advil and sat with my tea. Sometimes, I wonder if it is from our mattress or my recliner. I was in that chair for a fair bit yesterday and that may have aggravated it. Only myself to blame there.
|And a foggy one in areas|
(there is some blur at work here too)
I had an appointment at the Bank of Montreal for 9:30 in Owen Sound so Bill and I had to move a bit quicker than usual this morning . I started frying up some peameal bacon and warming us a piece of quiche each. We ate but didn’t have time to clean up the dishes before heading out at 8:30. Clemson was still in bed and when I brought him downstairs to go out, he wanted no part of it and went back upstairs.
|This is our closest big city|
It was foggy and cloudy this morning and as we turned onto the county road off Baptist Church Road, Bill watched the road while I watched for deer. This is the type of morning that they’ll be prancing across the road in front of you. I saw one but it was in the field near the forest edge. I love these roads, curvy and hilly but we both agreed ‘not in winter’ and ‘not with the Suite’. We arrived at the new location for the BoM on 16th Street E with time to spare.
|Moved from the busy downtown core, they have a really nice building out here|
|The drive home took us by this maple syrup farm|
|We didn't even realize they tapped here|
|Bill and I both enjoyed the sugar-free, carb-free custard|
|And out in the middle of nowhere, this beautiful golf course|

The water isn't down too much yet
|coming in the lane, we were so excited to see that|

7 new babies!
|Ma and Pa guided them into the pond after waddling ahead of the car|

Lots of dandelions this year
|A few things that I hang every year|
the little shelf needs some new adornment so I'll be watching this winter for
some southwest trinkets
|Same here - I love the racking that i got from Brenda in London years ago|
but need some new decor
We were finished in an hour so there is no way I could do all that by myself in that amount of time. I’m glad we did this tonight so we don’t have to get up early in the morning. Bill was able to get my new key to work in the back door so any time that I want to go in and override the usual ‘Open’ time, I can do that. It is much nicer without customers to work around. Tonight was a bit of a challenge so I’m glad I had help. We had also taken our bedding in to get it washed so Bill loaded that in the car while I filled out my chart and locked up.
|Hi dear! he's happy on the mower|
|Another little corner with my black-eyed susans and chives coming|
I need to visit H.H. and pick up some potting plants while they are on sale
|And I don't know if you can see my frogs but they are sitting throughout|
the garden with ElScott
|Nice to barbecue again|
|Gorgeous sunset tonight|
|Bill finishes up the cutting for the night just as the sun dips below|
|Good night from our land of enchantment|
