Forgot the camera!

There was a little bit of blue sky and sunshine yesterday morning, so we figured we had better get out and take advantage of it because it was not supposed to last into the afternoon.

We figured we would walk down to the washed out section of road to see if the water had gone down enough to make our way across it.

Seemed kind of odd not to have the camera with me... I had forgotten it at our daughter's house! But that's okay... the phone takes a decent picture when we have to.

Well, we made it over this part!

But that's as far as we're going.

The water on the (Canadian) Mississippi River has gone down about two feet from where it was, but it's still too high for them to be able to fix the road.

Meanwhile, the Ottawa River is surpassing the highs that flooded in the spring of 2017. It's supposed to peak on Wednesday. Maybe we'll take a drive down to Morris Island today and see how it's doing.

But, spring is in the air.

Looking forward to having some visitors today... one of the couples that was on our Mexico trip are coming to say hello! Bob and Denise with their dog Scarlett should be here after lunch! Fun!

Big price drop on the Instant Pot Duo Mini 3 Qt 7-in-1. If you ever wanted to try the small two person version of the popular Instant Pot, now is your chance.

And in Canada...


  1. Have fun with Bob and Denise!! Have one for us!! Home today.

    1. Welcome home Sue and Roy! How does it feel to be back?

  2. Even the southern part of Ontario has had more then its share of high waters and rain this spring.
    Be Safe and Enjoy our visit with Bob and Denise.

    It's about time.

    1. Yep, we are sure that they have but unfortunately people along the Ottawa River are really having a bad time of it.

  3. True spring time weather. You will have trouble figuring out what season is what this year. You will go from spring to winter??? lol

    1. So true, and then after that we will go straight to summer, sometimes all in the same day!

  4. Enjoy the Couillards’ visit....hello Bob and Denise! Should be a sweet mini-reunion. Hugs to all.

    1. We passed on the greetings to them! We are all having a lovely time together. :-)
