OCT. 6, Monday,
It was sunny today but cool again. We went into town to get propane and some food, picked up a water bottle at the corner store and came home.
I moved the sewer hose container under the rig so that it was easier to reach then I built a shelf for the front locker. Re-organized a couple of containers and re-sealed the shower stall. (I noticed a leak this morning)
Called the kids in the evening but missed most of them as they had gone out to watch Vanessa play however Hayley was home so we chatted with her for a good while. She has started dancing lessons and likes it a lot. Talking to her made me miss them even more but it was great chatting with Hayley all the same.
OCT. 7, Tuesday
A very chilly night…-1*C (31*F). BRRRRRRR!! It is a sunny day and it’s supposed to go up to 11*C
I fixed the bed frame so that the corners are now rounded and it fits the mattress. Also put the small TV away in its place and picked the leafs outside.
Made a few calls to Insurance office for Insurance into the States and Mexico; Fleetwood (still trying to get an answer on the landing gear motor)…they are ignoring me now that the warranty is over; and our storage at home.
We called the kids again tonight and caught up with Rochelle and Graeme. We wished Graeme a very happy Birthday….he’s 19 now! WOW! He said he was going out with a few friends to the pub as he is now legal. Told him to have fun but DO NOT DRIVE! Actually, he’s fairly responsible so I don’t think he would. Anyway, we spoke at length with Rochelle also but unfortunately, Kevin and Vanessa weren’t home. They sure lead a busy life these kids!
A good day overall.
OCT. 8, Wednesday
It went down to -2*C overnight but it’s supposed to warm up quickly and go to 12*C. Another sunny day and the temperature did go up to 17*C; pretty warm. We went grocery shopping then came home and fixed the satellite reception on our dish, too many trees around.
Got our mail today so catching up to all the magazines I received.
Oct. 9, Thursday
It rained overnight and in the morning but did clear up in the afternoon. It was 11*C first thing this morning and went up 18*C; what a crazy weather but no one is complaining!
My sister Therese came over and spent the afternoon and night with us. Val cooked a stir fry for dinner and we had it with Lise and Anthony. Gilles came home around 7:30 p.m. and he had a small plate that we had saved for him. It did rain in the evening again and over night.
OCT. 10, Friday
Sunny again today. I cooked breakfast then we just sat around and visited with my sister and Gilles’ family. We had dinner together and Therese went home around 7:30 p.m. and we went to bed early today.
OCT. 11, Saturday
Cold night,,,,2*C! But sunny this morning with a few clouds. My brother Johnny and his girlfriend, Ginette, came out from Longueuil and spent the week-end with us. We worked on the rig replacing the fireplace for a storage cupboard, putting the satellite receiver up and out so that we could access it easier, making a hole in the wall in the bathroom for easier access to the shut-off valves for the washer/dryer and a few other odds and ends.
Afterwards we sat around the fire and visited and had a few laughs
