What a day we had the other day. This morning it is -4˚ C. and a bit chilly. We have had some mild weather, but this might be it! It was a good day. I redid the outdoor lights. JB bought me some more white ones. It was a bit sparse. Plus I reconfigured the backyard ones. The tag on it really should come off. Maybe I'll read it first!
The problem with outdoor lights is that none of them have any standards for connection. It's like VHS and Beta. Poor JB and a clerk were trying to find a new string, I adapted it with an extension cord.
It was a good day's work. I cleaned one side of the eavestrough on the garage, the maple is done. I'll do the other side once the catalpa loses all of its leaves! Laundry, and vacuuming were done. I did some more gardening, more leaf mulching. I like my lawn tractor!
This morning, at 4 a.m., there was an interesting Ideas show on the discovery of the Erebus and Terror. It was too good to sleep through. It was fascinating that Inuit had the knowledge of survival, but Franklin's men didn't know how to hunt or fish in the Arctic. Inuit found a cairn, with a note regarding the date of his death, and their knowledge led to the discovery.
The next show was about civil wars in Sri Lanka. I thought I might as well get up. We've been so wrapped up in research on this gun club proposal that I haven't had the energy to visit all of you. I shall remedy that. Also, I had to go to Carleton Place to have a teeth cleaning. On the way, I spotted a crew cleaning up the ditches. Good to see. I did ours in the spring.
I just love the red roof, don't you?
Along the highway, a crow carrying its Tim Horton's takeout.
Some bush hog action!
I like Carleton Place. These are condos. What a clever way to repurpose a church. At least I think it was a church! (Do you know, AC?)
This lad was a bit of a mystery. Barefoot, and carrying a skateboard.
During my appointment, JB kindly went to Boulton House to grab me some takeaway. He wanted to show me the restaurant that had the fire in September. There is still debris. There were tenants living upstairs, similarly displaced.
On a happier note, sumacs are on their last hurrah! They are beautiful!
