rainy, mild, temps 13
Busy day...doing laundry, changing sheets, Gary came to sand and varnish the screen porch screen (well, the wood surrounds) but it was so rainy he had to actually take them off. then Pat and Tony arrived.
the place is abuzz with news of neighbors being arrested in the US on major drug busts. Grass is a huge crop around here. We'll see, though, how much of the rumor is true.
Recorded the pronunciation guide...might need to re-do it someday. REalized halfway through I should have organized it into catagories...food, greetings, character names. Lise, God bless her (HUGE amount of work) did it alphabetically...and that works, but I should have spent time organzing myself. Did start off each guide (one for each book) simply giving the main character names.
then home to make the baked beans, and boil up some potatoes...and discover that Michael has a bad tooth! I tell you, his whole head needs a tune up. I'm getting out the dish gloves and the spatula.
the only appointment we could get with the dentist in Montreal is 9:30 tomorrow morning...so we're going to hop in the car and head out to the city tonight. Called Pat and Tony and they'll come over.
Oh, the big drama today was that at 9am the phones went dead. We called Bell Canada. And they sent a tech who explained woodpeckers had eaten the lines! Apparently this is happening more and more. The internet cables give off a slight buzz which - to a woodpecker - sounds like bugs. So off they go...pecking away.
Not sure if the Bell guy - or the peckers - have been sampling that special crop. But by 4pm the phones were back on.
Must rush off...brother and sister in law arriving in Mtl tomorrow...will drive them out tomorrow night. Not sure when I can blog again. Will try though.
Have decided, did I mention, to go with a MacBook - but will wait and see if a new version comes out.
