Nearly forgot to post.....

Wednesday was a super busy day in the garden.  Got a lot of grass cut including the field and Kamikaze Hill.  Ds popped by and helped me move a limb off a tree that had half fallen off.  Had a bonfire.  Dug up some potatoes, still a million more plants to dig up.

Talked to my neighbour above us, who is trying to sell their house; it's a bungalow with 39 acres; was $699,000, now $649,000.  They haven't had much luck, not helped by a real estate agent who is useless!!! 

Made a couple of Egg Pie's for supper.  I didn't take a photo sorry, but all it is, is hard boiled eggs topped with cheese sauce and mashed potatoes on the top of it.  Super simple and I made two one for supper and one for the freezer.

Thursday will be another busy day for me, as ds is popping by again to do some whipper snipping for me.  I have all the nail holes in the trim to fill in, and hopefully I may get the first coat of paint on the trim in the closet.  I also have laundry to do, plus I had hoped to get some more potatoes dug up.

After lunch I have to go to the "big" city to run some errands, and then up to my dad's as he is picking my brother up from the airport.  He's visiting from Britain for a couple of weeks, so looking forward to seeing him.  It's been a couple of years since I last saw him, although we do talk on a regular basis.  So busy, busy again on Thursday!!

Ah yes, useless real estate agents...my grandparents have been through two of those with their home in Florida so far and one with their propert in South Carolina. It's so hard to sell a home when you're not around. At least when they sold their home here in Montreal, my mom and uncle were around to keep after the agent!

Enjoy the time with your brother!

You asked about Parry Sound: Yes, I enjoyed the town and would like to go again. If you go, be sure to take your camera. :)

I bet it is great to see your brother...just something about seeing them in person. I too wonder what whipper-snipping is--do you mean using a weedeater?
