June 3 to June 9 2012

June 3, 2012
Grandpa cooked us a wonderful brunch and before Sharon, Meghan, TJ & Paul had to leave we got some more chores done. The kitchen fan got cleaned, the heavy unit from Grandpa's office got moved out to the east porch and now I have a potting bench. We had to empty it all over the office so we might not find Grandpa for awhile! Beds were changed and they hit the road around 12:30. John burned a lot of old papers and I worked on organizing the potting area. We had a surprise visit from Dorothy Fraser who stayed for a cup of tea. We went out and stopped at Jack & Nancy's to look at the progress on their new workshop and then had coffee with battered mushrooms and onion rings at BH. It poured rain between 4 and 5 pm. We had cold meat for supper. Found a couple of new shows starting the summer season on A & E and watched them in the evening. Full moon tonight.

Still dull and cool. Worked on the computer most of the day. Went for coffee at BH and Carole T. joined us. Got some supplies at Foodland so I could make Turkey Tetrazzini for supper.

Back to work today and it is a beautiful day. Sun and cloud and not cold or warm. Just right. Had coffee at BH and Fr. joined us. Did some potting and am working on getting the east porch back to order again. James & Denise were here tonight to see John and say hello.

A good busy day at work. Went shopping afterwards and bought more pink foliage plants and Fr. gave me more of his cuttings so I spent some time repotting things. It was a beautiful day till 4 pm and then a thunderstorm threatened but so far we have just had light rain. I set the newly potted plants out to soak up some rain water. It didn't rain all that much. Sausages in a bun for supper. Went to bed and my book at 8:30 and finished Cross by James Patterson. Turned the light out at 9:30.

Puttered around with jewellery this morning and put clothes away. Hung out 2 more loads. Had no Kraft dinner so went to Burger Hut for lunch. John wouldn't buy more because it wasn't on sale. Male logic. Had to water the plants I put outside as we didn't get much rain. It is warm and muggy today. Another thunderstorm in the late afternoon. I brushed off the blue metal plant stand and filled it with my pots of plants. John off to the golf course for steak dinner but he made me a bacon sandwich before he left. He also hung the little shelf on the kitchen wall. Just the Varithane to go. Will check out some TV tonight.

I spent most of the morning sorting at my jewellery table. We went to lunch at BH and it was crowded. Almost everyone was Catholic! Back to the jewellery for a couple of more hours. I now have a container of projects with the beads etc. that they need to complete them. Bernie W. was here to check the hall light. He put in a temp light till he can fix it. He will come back and get rid of the knob and tube. That will be a big job but we can't sell the house till it is done. Kraft Dinner was 12cents off so we had it with hot dogs for supper! Warm nice day with the usual thunder storm in the afternoon?

June 9, 2012
A rather dull day, a bit humid. light rain on and off. Spent most of the day at my computer. John did one coat of varatheane on the cupboards. Went to Mass at 5 and invited Harry and Carole for supper. We had spaghetti, garlic bread, red wine, coleslaw and lemon cake for dessert. Went outside to say good bye and got 2 mosquito bites in no time. I hate them!
