Day 249 - 5th September 2012 - Fog on the Lake, fine on the Harbour, Memories

Wednesday, my day off and rain in the forecast - lots by the sound of things. Now somewhere I had a list of things to do on a rainy day...where did I put that.
The first day of school. The little ones will be going off on the bus this morning, some for the first time. Most of the kids going to Uni left Sunday or Monday to get settled in. I'm in to the 9th month of the blog; can't believe the year is racing by so quickly.

Yesterday was another nice day, got lots of things finished up at work, and had a few researchers in. September is the month for retired folks to travel. I see on the news Halifax is getting lots of Cruise Ships, too bad we couldn't get a few here.
From Grandmother's Journal:

Labour Day Holiday
A small hurricane not to much wind and rain all night. Came out fine early afternoon. I made some zucchini pickles. Worked all day at one thing and another. Muriel and Russ McKay dropped in in the afternoon late. Glad to see them. Bob worked outside doing odd jobs in the workshop, etc. Canadians won hockey last night.

Lovely day, fallish tonight. To town early with Tomatoes (ripe) and cukes. $8.10 [She sold them to one of the stores]. Annie went with us. Bill went home [her grandson] to school (Wednesday). She has gone to stay now. Didn't get home until 4:30, washed and did some shopping. Took all Kim's stuff home. Picked a cup of ripe strawberries, some good. No blueberries this year. Fran was in town from Barrington getting car serviced at Hipson's. Bob drove her around.

The lake had thick fog rolling up from it this morning.
It has the haunted movie look!
By the time I got to town there was no fog in the harbour. Looking across at one of the picnic table in the park.
The boats were quiet yesterday morning.
Time to move on, the rest of the house will soon be up and quiet time will be over. Enjoy your day!



  1. Enjoy your day off...why not curl up with a good book and hot cup of tea :) Grandmother's journal another interesting comparison "the weather" lol

  2. It was a good day, even though it rained!
