Reservations for our busy season continue to dribble in. Busy season for us essentially lasts from June 27th (the day after the kids get out of school) until August 9th. About 6 weeks.
I was comparing to last year, and we're definitely taking more reservations for the week before the July long weekend, and the week after the August long weekend. And August long weekend will again be sold out this year, in fact there are only six full hookup sites still available.
Our washroom renovation is coming along...slowly. The construction guys said they were stuck and they needed to wait for the electrician to do his thing, but he's pretty much finished now. So I expected them in yesterday, but they never showed. Hopefully today. So long as the project is completely finished by June 25th, it doesn't really matter. But time has a way of flying by, and before you know it they'll be scrambling to finish. I guess we'll see.
The water level in the lake is about a foot lower than it was last year at this time. It was May 28th last year when it started to rise, and I expect it will be the same this year, however they had very little snow out west so hopefully it will come up to a point where it's usable by the recreational boating crowd.
I changed the front brake pads on the little blue car yesterday. Easy job, and well worth doing it myself instead of paying somebody else $95 in labor to do it. So the brake job cost $42 instead of the $162 that Canadian Tire wanted. The car now has 200,000 kms (120,000 miles) on it, and they were the original brake pads. Not bad! But most of that was highway mileage and I drive pretty gently. In a couple of days, the little blue car will be 9 years old!
Supposed to go up to 28C (83F) today, but still no rain.

Oh, and a great deal at Lonely Planet. Their guidebooks (e-version) are on sale through Friday May 29th for $9.99 each. Pretty much half price, so it's a great deal. Use promo code EBOOKSALE. Check the "new edition" date though...I wanted the one for Colombia, but the new edition comes out in August so I'll wait for then. http://shop.lonelyplanet.com/ebooks
