Where are we?

Monday September 2, 2019

Our new home for the next few weeks.

Officially, this had been our last travel day before we got home.
One big 9.4 km of travel!

We are very happy to see Jannie, Patricia and Jan.
We slowly are getting settled.

Lake Ontario's water level has dropped over the summer, but it is still very high for this time of year.
Here are some photos from the month of May and from now.

And last May.

Today and last May.

Today and last May.

On Thursday, I will give a hand to Jan to remove the last of the gravel that was shoring up the sand bags.

We did go to town to get some groceries, get the instruction sheet for the preparation for my medical appointment, pick up our mail from the UPS Store.  I also washed the car, boy it was dirty.

I am at the Belleville hospital for my Myocardial Perfusion Test (Dipyridamole).
I will be at the hospital from 8.45 am until 1 pm. It is not a hard test.

It turned out they modified my test by switching from a drug induced work out to a thread mill work out. It is not as hard on the heart. The cardiologist and the nurses were wondering why I was getting this test. I do not know!!!
I will be seeing my cardiologist on September 17 for the results.

The weekend warriors are not in yet, so we can see the water.

Jan's new excavator was delivered this morning. The old one was getting tired.

Jan hard at work.

Michele is helping this morning. Jan fills the Kubotas with the gravel. I am the one who bring the Kubotas for Jan to fill. Michele takes the Kubotas from me and drives them to the back of the campground to dumps the gravel.
We started at around 1 pm and stopped at 4.30 pm. We did a lot of work this afternoon.
Michele loved driving the Kubotas and dumping the gravel.

This is the result of our afternoon of work. Jan will do some landscaping later on.

The lighter gravel you see is what Michele brought from the front of the campground.

There are only 15 to 20 feet of gravel left to remove. We will do it tomorrow morning.

We had a very good day.

I was back at work this morning. This time we did not need Michele.
Jan again hard at work.

Me and my Kubota for the morning. We were done by lunch time.

As you probably remember, we want to change our sofa in the MH.
We are sofa shopped all afternoon at all the big furniture stores in the area.

The one in The Brick caught our eye. We will think about it over the next little while.

Some of the photo Michele took today. The monarchs are all over the front lawn of the office. And so are the frogs.

Jannie does a very nice job for the landscaping of the campground.

I basically spent the morning talking to people in the campground.

When I got back to the MH, Michele and I talked about the couch.
It is decided, we will get the couch from The Brick.

Shaw Direct has made some changes to their satellites and our automatic satellite antenna no longer finds them! I called the installer of our automatic antenna for a fix. I was told I would need to buy a new comptroller for $800 for the antenna to find the right satellite.
But! When the current comptroller finds the right satellite and it does not stop, all I have to do is stop the search mode on the comptroller and we have TV. The neighbors across the street have the same problem, but did not know about the easy solution. So I helped them get the satellite.

Michele got up early (for her) this morning. She wants to go to a yard sale with lots of baby stuff.
Here she is with her loot. All that for only $5.

I went out for a walk while she sorts out the clothing.

This is what I found when I got back...

I put the old sofa on line as a free sofa. At lunch time a lady from the campground texted me about it and took it.
We will give the chair and ottoman to Benoit when we get to Quebec in a few weeks.

We also learned a campers daughter was expecting a baby soon. So Michele goes through the clothing and what she does not choose, goes to this lady.

We are invited at Jannie and Jan's place for supper. Jannie has prepared some salmon for supper. Patricia was with us for the meal. As usual, the meal was great, the company was also great. Thanks Jannie and Jan.

Until next time.

Life is good...
