It's about time.

Cold Front

Our Location Today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

The Weather Channel prediction for today was supposed to be the same as yesterday. So after two days of no rain the thought of returning to our daughter's to continue  making progress on the firepit patio was examined. The temperature and the wind speed were the same so the plan was to go over after lunch.

Heading to the truck in the parking lot the chill from the wind felt worse than yesterday so after starting the truck for Kathy to remain warm I returned to the apartment for a warmer work coat. The other day when Kathy had helped me with the leveling device the wind gave her an ear infection so today she was just going to visit.
With the blowing wind at my back even wearing the heavier work jacket I still needed to pull the hood from my hoody up because my head was freezing. After chipping away at the clay for nearly four hours by myself out in the wind the project was showing advancement it was time to call it a day. I was exhausted and needed to come home for supper and a rest.

Supper was very satisfying but as we sat watching the news afterwards my eyes shut causing me to lose an hour of daylight. Even Kathy had slipped into a state of relaxation that she needed as well. Neither of us seemed to have any energy to carry on any further tasks for the day. We are sure that both of us will still sleep well tonight due to the fresh cold northern air that we were exposed to. Tomorrow's weather prediction is for more of the same so we'll be waiting until Tuesday when the temperature is to be moderately warmer.

Kathy and I would like to welcome new blog follower Jessica Foster who has a blog call Breathings. She is a student and writer and from the different types of blogs that she is following is using them for inspiration. Much of what I read of her writings is very informative and inspirational as well.

Thank goodness the outlook for next week's weather will be a great improvement. Especially since we are only 59 days from Summer. That only leaves me 42 days to complete all my projects before Kathy and I are back on the road. Be Safe and Enjoy!
It's about time.

Re-Leaf' Stress with Plants
A Washington State University study measured the effects
 of indoor plants on students performing a slightly stressful
computer-based task in a university computer lab.
 When researchers decorated the lab with indoor plants,
 they found that their subject's reactions were 12 percent quicker
 on the task, and their systolic blood pressure fell.

  3. Yes we hoping for a warmup too, our coach is warm but not to nice to play outside for sure!
