It's about time.

Weather Related Delays

Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

It was pleasant listening to the rain tapping on the roof as we slept through the night but this morning when we got up the continued rain and the wind that was shaking the trees around us brought with it a cold dampness inside that eventually forced us to turn on some heat.
With the continuing rain and the almost winter like cold the decision was made to wait until it cleared before resuming our outdoor project. Later while sitting at the computers we received a phone call from the McGregor Home Hardware telling us our food storage containers had arrived. Since I also needed to exchange a masonry bit and Tapcon screws that I’d purchased yesterday we’d certainly be going there this afternoon.
For lunch Kathy made a wonderful salad that she topped with the leftover chicken that I grilled on the Weber yesterday. Watching outside we also enjoyed the antics of the birds that are presently making their nests. The way they get some of the materials is hilarious and shows their commitment to getting the job done. We were also amazed at where some of the nests were being built. We’ve had some built in our Pinbox in the past. In the crook of the tree behind where we are installing our shed that was only about seven feet from the ground. Today I watched as a couple of robins that were making their nest on top of the waste outlet on a trailer that is presently unoccupied.

Shortly after eating we were on our way to the McGregor Home Hardware store where I had no problem exchanging the remainder of yesterday’s purchase and picking up Kathy’s food storage containers. Due to the unseasonable weather after looking around if there were any other treasures we might get we were on our way to Amherstburg. Kathy wanted to try to get some household items that she knew Walmart carried and that was the closest location. By the time we left there we had what she had set out to get and more. Like the birds she likes to give her surroundings a personal appeal.

We stopped at our son Kevin’s to drop off some containers that we’ve replaced from the trailer and for me to borrow a builder’s square. When we arrived nobody was home and everything was locked up so that errand will have to wait until the next time we are in town.

Getting back Home there was still a light rainfall that caused us to turn the heat on again to get the chilly dampness out of the air. With a dryer warmer day forecasted for tomorrow I’m looking forward to getting things finished outside and better organized. Kathy is still fine tuning the inside of our Home. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
