I went to visit a friend and her husband on Wednesday morning as it was pouring down and I had to run a couple of errands in town. She had been strawberry picking the day before and was kind enough to give me a container of strawberries. There is nothing better than local picked strawberries. They smell so much better than the imported strawberries. I can't wait to eat them.
While I was in town I had to get the recipe book order forms photocopied. It cost 59 cents per copy for a colour copy. Can you believe that, I was shocked. I didn't have to pay for it, the church has an account, but due to the high cost I only got 50 copies, as that was was over $25 for those.
In the afternoon between the showers I managed to plant the 10 emerald cedars. Which is another big job crossed off my list. Must say though I was pooped after I had done that.
One of the big news stories in our area is the G8 and G20 summits that are being held in Huntsville and Toronto It is costing the taxpayers of Canada millions and millions of dollars, disrupting businesses and people alike. Downtown Toronto will be coming to a virtual standstill while the G20 is on. It has cost us taxpayers $1.9 million to build a "fake lake" in the middle of the Convention Centre, to give the summit goers an idea of what Muskoka looks like????? I am sure you could take them all on a day trip on a bus and show them what it all looks like for a lot less!!! Oh and the latest security threat, they're uprooting trees downtown as they could be used as weapons!!! For more crazy stories about these summits check out this link
