Yesterday was nice but cooled off in the afternoon so we built a fire in the furnace. This time of the year I find the house is cold, then of course with a wood fire it gets too hot. Wood is not easy to regulate, but come the miserable days of winter and I love it. Managed to get 2 more rooms done, some laundry etc. That brings my total rooms completed to 10, I'm half way there! Rah!
I thought a very good friend could use some memories from Grandmother's Journal today:
Sunday 5th November 1972
Overcast and spitting snow or rain. Miserable day. I wasn't outside all day. Bob and two boys went out to traps in woods buggy. Nothing. Bobbie, Bettie and Kim came up. B & B up river, nothing again, water too high. Worrying about Ruth, Mum and Anne taking Jimmie back. Hope roads are ok. Kids stayed to supper. Kids talking whose coming this week.
Monday 6th November 1972
Beautiful day. Not even to cold. Lovely late afternoon an evening. To town and washed, did a bit of shopping. Back home around 3. Saw 2 partridges by gate. Walked down to the dogs one flew out of apple tree down there. Someone still at cozy camp. Not many robins.
Tuesday 7th November 1972
Home all day. Not to fine. Bob went to beaver traps out old road. No beaver. I baked bread and 2 pumpkin pies. Mother came up just before dark. Listened to Nixon's victory for a while. Part of the road has been scrapped up to Brier Hill Road.
The rest of the family will soon be up, time to put the kettle back on. Enjoy your day!
