This morning, it was 7:40am!! Unbelievable!
This is the Canada Day long weekend up here in the great white north. Not so white at this time of year of course, in fact it's been kind of grey the last few weeks. Lots of rain in the month of June, but so far the weather forecast for the long weekend is looking pretty good.
We had a few campers arrive yesterday in advance of the crowds, but we will be sold out by tonight. It's going to be pretty much non stop for us the next three days. But we're ready. Managed to get the landscaping looking pretty good (grass cutting, weed eating, trimming etc) despite trying to do it in between rain storms. The wood shed is full and ready for the campers. We're set.
Oh, speaking of the wood shed and the rain...
I was backing the truck up in the mud in front of the woodshed when the front end dropped like a rock. It was almost like quicksand! Yes, it's a 4x4, and yes, I almost couldn't get out! But I did...I just have to be very careful in that spot from now on! There's a real soft spot because there's some kind of underground stream running in that area, and the water level on the lake keeps coming up which is just on the other side of the wood shed. I'll show you more of that tomorrow maybe!
The nice folks in Namibia asked for our travel dates yesterday. Looks like we'll be leaving New York City on November 6th, and returning March 6th. So, 4 months in Africa. We have to fly back to New York, so we'll somehow have to make our way from New York to Mexico...but that's a long way off so we'll figure something out.
Okay...off to work...have a great day all!
