Got an email from the property management office. Do you know I sigh when I see one of these in my inbox now, as I wonder what on earth is happening now. Part of this one said:
THE WATERING POLICY IS AS FOLLOWS:
May 1st to September 30th
- Even numbered houses may water on even numbered days and odd numbered houses on odd numbered days
- The hours for watering are from
8:00 pm to 10:00 pm ONLY
NO MORNING/ AFTERNOON WATERING
I sent them an email back saying this:
"Well that's silly those times. Why can't we water early morning? We are early to bed and very early risers. "
Now we don't go to bed at 8 pm, but by that time of night, we are settled in, probably sitting in our P.J's watching tv. I do not want to be outside watering my gardens. It will be interesting to see if they allow morning watering's which is what I do and what I will continue to do regardless of the policy.
Went to Barrie on Wednesday morning to spend some gift cards and called in at McDonald's for a cup of coffee and a muffin. $1.75 for a small coffee and muffin, plus you get a sticker to put on your card, so every 8th coffee is free. Can't beat that deal.
It was a fresh fruit salad type of day on Wednesday, as I had a lot of leftover fruit laying around.
Still have a large piece of watermelon as well in the fridge. Nothing says summer weather like watermelon.
Speaking of the weather, the annuals have had to be covered the past couple of nights due to the risk of frost. Dh has had to scrape the frost of the windows of his truck in a morning.
Talking of windows.........the window cleaners are here to do their twice yearly cleaning of our windows. Fat lot of good it will do as these trucks are still wandering back and forward, stirring up all the dust.
Finally, got the window guys back again to see about repairing our basement windows. Would you believe we have been in this house nearly a year? I will do another post about our year end report that we have to submit to the builder.......as I have a "few" things to say!!!
