All Day Long

The couch has been my friend all day long  I have been sleeping on and off the whole of the day.

This will also be all she wrote this day, Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard.

Down For The Count

Yes it has finally caught up with me and I am now down for the count.  My throat is burning and raw, my glands are swollen, and my head is ready to explode with a runny stuffy nose to boot.

I am sick, and nothing at the moment is taking that from me.  And
sleep? whatever might that be she asks.

This is all she wrote this day, but not all she has done this day, Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard.

Our whirlwind of children have left the building, but not first until they had visited Great-Grandma.

What a happy bunch, are they all not?

Not only were our children a whirlwind passing through, so had the weather been, and still is.\

Heavy rains, hail and threats of tornadoes all day.  The rains are still coming down steady.

Vicki & I had gone up to the Market at the Handcraft House up Hwy. 6 today.  Nothing too adventurous but to put some time in and nose around.  This evening we all went out to the new Asian Buffet in Owen Sound, which had previously been the King's Buffet.  I have to admit it had been quite good

After all the whirlwinds this past weekend had brought, both Rob and I are all in but for our shirttails, Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard.

All my teaspoons of energy have been over spent.  It has been a busy day but still nice to have the kids here, all seven of them, and our BFF, Doug & Vicki.

Vicki & I hit the roads this morning to do some Garage Saling.  Prior to that I had been awake from midnight, and out for a walk with Buddy at 5 am.  Yes I am tired .... but here are a couple of photos:

More Photographs to follow tomorrow, as this girl is heading to bed soon, Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard.

Way too ....

..... tired to blog much tonight.  I am done like dinner and all in but for my shirttail, and it isn't fun at all being this tired.

I helped my girlfriend, Shannon, this morning, our company arrived mid-afternoon, and tomorrow morning the kids all arrive, all seven of them.  I am tired thinking about all that.

Tomorrow the Wiarton Rotary Fair will be going full force at the Bluewater Park in Wiarton.  Don't miss out on the fun !!!  Sunday is "kids day" for one price bracelet..

Beat Beat Beat

 Yes I sure am beat beat beat, as is my girlfriend, Shannon  Today we were sorting boxes of things prior to her Mother's moving day of tomorrow.  The pressure is on to meet the deadline prior to the movers arriving.

I sure don't feel after walking over 6 miles today I have lost any weight, but maybe gained as muscles weigh more then fat (so they tell me).  I walked over the amount of steps shown, as I didn't always have my Cell phone on me all day.

Back home before 9 am, I watered plants and took a moment to admire this arrangement out on our deck.

Too tired for more.  That is all she wrote, Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard.

Morning Has Broken

Yesterday morning I had left the house with Portia at 6:30 am before the heat came with the rising of the Sun.  We had walked down by Colpoy's Bay and the Wiarton Marina, with the sun on the rise and as you can tell below, morning has broken.

Which is your favourite of the three photos? I do love the Marina photo, but really do love all of them as they are "feeling good" photos, yes?

What made me laugh was the following sight; what made me want to cry is I only had my iphone deciding at the last moment not to carry my camera along (I regretted that decision).

I had the enjoyment of watching 5 otters scamper across the boardwalk along the front of where the boats were moored..  It was hilarious watching their antics.

Today had been a scorcher, however we found ways to try and cool down..

This evening I picked myself some "make me feel good" lilies from my unkempt gardens.

Two photos of things I love.  The clock I had purchased for $10. at a garage sale a couple of weeks ago, and the Boston Ferns hanging in our Gazebo out on the deck..

Other then getting our bedding washed, along with a load of darks afterwards, not too much other was accomplished this day.  Yikes ! I still have to make up our bed fresh, Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard.
