The Sowerby Hall - we beat the rush
What we woke up to on Sunday morning - it hadn't snowed in Sowerby tho.
My Plate - Yum Yum - they were carrot muffins and I poured a lot of maple syrup over my pancake and dipped my sausages in it.

Tomorrow morning we will attend a breakfast at the Sowerby Hall - pancakes, sausage, bacon, maple syrup etc. It's about time I got waited on instead of serving at the hall. The syrup will be from last year as this year's crop is not going too well. The weather hasn't been co-operating. Then Ron and Mary want us to go for a 4 wheeler ride with them back in the bush. Should be an interesting day.
See Ya Bye

I think tomorrow may be the time to get back on the highways for my walks.
Yesterday we were in the Sault bringing back Joanne and Mitch's new toy - an Artic Cat 550 4x4 quad - nice toy. But they know the mileage so I can't really take it out and play with it. Can I? Better not. Ours are still in the other garage but I think it will be about time to get those babies out...
See Ya By

of the driveway that said John and Randy were on strike and to call their union rep, Roger. Randy had put the box there last nite at 1am when they finally finished celebrating the big hockey win. It was a joke but for a moment I thought I didn't have to work. But no such luck. We worked from 10am til 2pm - 4 hours of good hard work. And we got a lot done as well. As you can see from the picture above, John was trying to catch a little cat nap on the logs. Linda says he forgot how much hard work is involved doing your own firewood. Some people up here buy "bunks" of firewood. Whole logs are delivered to their yards and then you cut them to length and split them yourself. That alone is hard work. But when you have to do it from scratch - well that is the fun of it. It certainly keeps you in shape. The top picture is a tall sliver that was left from a tree splitting when it went down. Randy is working on it to take it down. My job again was to burn the brush but I also throw some of the logs into the piles. I'm getting pretty good and my right arm doesn't hurt anymore. I haven't done my exercises in over 2 weeks!!! I get enough cardio and weight work from the wood work.
I woke up today with the cold that has been going around here. I am trying to ignore it but I feel pretty rotten. We are having a day off tomorrow because everyone wants to go fishing and according to John's calendar, it is a great week to fish and the weather couldn't be better - sunny and temps in the pluses. Saturday it is going up to 6 with sun so I know where I will be. Not in the bush...
See ya Bye
