I woke up Friday morning to rain hitting the windows. We had been planning all week to spend the day with my Mum down in Bomanville. We didn't want to disappoint her to we continued on with our plans.
The sky was very dark for most of the day. As you can see in the photo above it was bright on the other side of Lake Ontario.
The wind was very strong! The Canadian flag behind the tree is standing straight out.
I think The Big Apple has a new paint job! It always makes me smile when I see it.
We had a lovely visit with my Mum. She has been having some health issues lately that have been worrying all of us but she is as bright as ever. We ran a few errands for her and then settled down for a long chat. She wanted me to go through her photos and take any I wanted. So you know where some will end up! There were so many I haven't seen in years and some I had forgotten about.
It started to clear up later in the day. It was a good day. We stopped at one of my favourite thrift stores and I found 10 books by an author I enjoy very much. All ten books for $6.00! The books are sold by the pound so they are always inexpensive.
All the outside work here is now completed so our home is ready for the winter.
We are concentrating on more painting. As I type this Chuck is painting our bedroom ceiling so no sleeping in there for a few nights. The ceiling paint is horribly smelly!
Does anyone else love Carol Burnett? For Christmas a few years ago I received a large set of her show but this DVD set was recently released. It contains shows that couldn't be released with the large set for legal reasons??????? anyway that's what she states in the booklet that comes with the DVD. We have watched one episode so far and it was very funny. I am looking forward to watching the rest of them.
We had another lovely road trip yesterday to visit Kim. The weather was perfect and we enjoyed spending time with her and the boys. More on that trip next time!
Another sunny day here today so I must get out and enjoy it. Who knows how many more we will have now that it is mid-November.
