Where are we?

Monday, May 3, 2021

Every Monday, I kind of make a list of things to do this week. And then it changes.
Jan asked me if I wanted to help build a deck with him and his employee, Rachel. Of course!
The deck will be 14' X 38'. This is where it is going to be located.

Meanwhile, Michele checks out the geese with the babies on the front lawn.

We are hard at work. This is Rachel's first deck.

This deck is my third one. Rachel is paying attention and learning fast.

After being a woodworker all day, I turn into a plumber just before supper. I am flushing the freshwater system on the MH. As for the pink stuff on the ground, it is safe for the environment.

Benoit sent us the photo of him and a friend doing some geocaching in Montreal.

I will continue to work on the deck tomorrow.

I almost forgot Jeremy and Kristin skyped with us after supper. Jeremy has popped the big question to Kristin. She said yes...
No date for the wedding yet. We are very happy for both.

The little babies are still doing good.

Let's go back to the deck. We made a lot of progress today.

Michele continues with her crochet. She is now making table cloths.

We finished the deck just before lunch. We are pretty happy with our work.

Today,  I continue flushing our freshwater system. I used the pink stuff for winterizing. It leaves an after taste once removed. To fix that, I add a little bleach in the freshwater tank and run water in all the lines. It sanitizes. Let it sit for many hours. Then flush again with just fresh  water. Then flush again with some baking soda in the water to remove any after taste. I am all done. The water tastes good now. We also moved some more stuff to the MH.

We made a few more trips with boxes between the house and the MH.
I found those emergency flashing lights on Amazon.ca and bought them. They have 9 different ways to flash and a flashlight on all of them. They are visible from far away. They are going in the trunk of the car.

We have a busy day today.
We are putting all the docks in the water.

This is the equipment we will be using.

In a regular year, the seasonal campers are here to help with the job, not this year due to COVID.
The crew consists of people in the same bubble. This will be a reduced crew.

This is part of the crew.
The tractor drops the docks in the water. The excavator is used to move the gangway in place and we install the pins holding it to the base and the dock.

Even with a smaller crew, things move along pretty good.

The geese do not like us very much. We are disturbing them.

Andrew took out an old tarp from the water and found a few fish in it, like this monster.

We continue with the docks on the pier.

We also disturbed a turtle.

The gangway and the docks are all in the water, ready for the watercraft. We did not put the end platform in the water because the wind was blowing hard and making it difficult to control.

We are happy with the work done today. Jan, Jannie and Patricia very happy that all the docks are in the water. They appreciate the help.

We are having Jannie and Jan over for supper tonight. We will be having a Raclette. I forgot to take some photos.

Jeremy sent us a photo of Natasha. She did not want to smile... They wish a Happy Mother's Day to Michele.

Benoit also sent a message to Michele for Mother's Day.

We slowly continued our move to the MH. We move stuff slowly because we will not be moving out until Wednesday.

Until next time.

Life is good...
