      Cooled down overnight and at 5 am was 37F (2.7C)  But when the sun came up things quickly warmed up and no wind yet , So I headed on down the road and back for a wonderful 2 mile walk, This is more like it!
at the end of the laneway this
 Rhinoceros tree met me
I had a nice walkabout down this road an back
2 miles a good start to my day
lotsa huge Turkey barns here
        Then shortly after 8 am I took the back roads into The Home Hardware in Plattsville to fill our 5 gallon water jug with RO water for drinking. $2.99 here. And of course Kim is there with her smiling face to greet me again, gotta love small town business. Then while here I ran into people I have not seen for a while, Shane, Scott and Connie I have known for over 35 years always nice to catch up with people again. We chatted for a bit then I was back home to putter around a bit then whip up a tasty light lunch.
Beef cattle here
this is the sugar bushes from yesterdays posting
a dairy farm lots in this area
         Then back home
         Then after lunch at 12:30 we headed to Ayr Ontario to watch Grandson #4 play hockey Yeah!!!! They are playing 4 on 4 a fast paced game that keeps these guys moving. Non stop skating for 50 minutes, every 90 seconds they change players on the go, the clock never stops. These guys sure have fun and a good workout.

         After the game we went to see their new house a huge home 3 bedrooms 2 baths, awesome kitchen living room and family room.
it was just finished last fall
     Then we went outside to play for a bit enjoying the nice weather.
she loves climbing
love this huge kitchen, always a busy one
        They were going to have pizza for an early supper and asked us to join them. Wow that would be awesome, so we enjoyed a wonderful tasty pizza, remember there is 6 of them and two angry teenagers, we got to spend the afternoon hanging g out with these guys.
A very tasty treat for supper , thanks guys
Now she is going to make desert and play us a tune
ok back outside fresh air racing their car around the dirt

       They also make there own Maple syrup, tapping the trees with buckets and make enough for themselves.

     Then we took a nice long walk back the acreage, work off lunch and enjoy the sunshine, cool breeze though.
