What an amazing spring Day !

Where are we today ?
     Well hey,  gotta love the weather and the forecast for the next ten days !
     Much warmer and some sunshine, even a bit of rain, no problem as long as its warm. April showers bring May flowers etc...
      This morning we just puttered along, mostly just cleaning and wiping stuff down. Two of the 3  bathrooms cleaned, both kitchens the cupboards, washed out, some walls washed and baseboards too. No need to wait until the last minute. 
      After a light lunch Suzie and her Dad headed in to visit her mom and I got to take off and enjoy a wonderful walkabout town. Perfect weather for it, sunshine and no wind, much better and more fun than the indoor track. It is a small town and can walk most of it in about and hour and half. At least a circle tour. Took a slightly different route this time and enjoyed more nice old and interesting houses along the way.
6.1 kms (3.8 miles) 
heading on out
       Just enjoying the fresh air , sunshine and exercise. Losta new sights to see.
      Turn down a side street and one block I am in the country.
      Another 2 blocks and one on the many Churches in town.
         Have to go over the Nith river, the water fall always intrigues me, so peaceful.
Sobey's Grocery store
Huge Mennonite population here so of course
the Mennonite Credit Union
nice mural on the side of the firehall
big bird is fishing
another church , notice the solar panels?

love this house and garage
very different design
under the expressway, beside the river
huge house on a couple acres , very mice 
then they have new homes here too
        Back home the flowers are beginning to bloom, so fragrant had to bring a clipping inside for Suzie.
daffodils are always a welcome site
         I even had some time to enjoy my e -reader in the sun on the back deck for a while. T-shirt and shorts = awesome. Actually very hot, love it!
         As Suzie heads home I begin whipping up supper. Tonight, something we rarely do anymore. I picked up a couple Rib-eye steaks on sale a while ago and thought with this great weather time for a good BBQ. We don't eat much beef anymore but do enjoy it (will suffer afterwards) but at least we don't do it too often. So went all out steak, baked potato, fresh mushrooms and onions, and a fresh garlic parmesan bun from the bakery at Sobeys.
add the salad and we had a feast for sure
        Now that was an amazing day and the weather is getting better now, can't wait to move back into our house one week today.
         Hope your day was as wonderful as ours and would like to thank y'al, for stopping by again.
Check out the interactive map below to see where we have been this past Winter.


  1. Love those old neighborhoods.

    You are having better weather than we are. Darn the bad luck.

  2. Another great walk around...most houses seem to be 2 or 3 stories high. Around here no one likes stairs and keep them low...must be preparing for old bones...LOL

    1. We prefer no stairs too, but a two story house is cheaper to build and easier to heat.

  3. A great day! And the count down is on! Soon you will be back on the road. Dinner looks great!

    1. At least we will be back in our house, not going too far for a while.

  4. I love all those old big houses. I don't want to own one but I sure do like looking at them. It's going to be HOT here this week. Seems to be about right on schedule for our first 100 degree day.

    1. Of my 11 homes, 4 were very old and they have so much warmth and character to them, compared to a new house.
      It will be quite a while yet before we get to 100 degrees.

  5. Much prefer the older homes to the cookie cutter ones stuck side by side.

  6. A nice walk followed up with a steak sounds like a pretty fine day.


We love it when you take the time to drop us a line.
