Mr. Postman Please

Today brought "catch up" time.  I had thought I was going to have to cover one of our Drivers today, but it turns out tomorrow worked out better for me to cover.  In the meantime I had cancelled another appointment, but that is one which can easily be rescheduled for another time.

Once I knew I was staying at home ... hooray !  I got a load of laundry in.  Our Company packed up to leave back for their home by 10 am, so we had a brief good-bye before they headed South down the road.

With laundry hung out, and Aussies all content, I got going on ripping the dining room apart.  A bit of organizing done first, dusting and vacuuming completed, I then got going on washing a "grid" in the dining room area.

The "pull apart" stage, then the finished areas.  My helper , Bandit, was not too much help to me this day, but he is good about spreading his hair about and giving me *smiles* of encouragement from time to time.

I never did get the area around the wood stove done, or in front of the patio doors and side window.  Tomorrow ... so much to do and not ever enough time to do it all most days.  Each and every room needs cleaned.  Hopefully tomorrow I can get the front entrance way done, then those other areas done before I even think about the living room area, bathroom, and bedrooms.  *Sigh* no rest for the wicked, and this girl really must be some wicked.

I made some hard-boiled eggs today so I would have them to make Rob his favourite Devilled Eggs tomorrow .. ssh it is a surprise.  This evening's Dinner was leftover Ribs for Rob and Chicken for me, along with Beets and Stuffed Zucchini for both of us, and Beet Greens for me, and sliced tomatoes for Rob.  The Stuffed Zucchini before they were placed on the BBQ.

Just a bit of SHOUT OUT for the Wiarton District Optimist Club that had been "shared" on Wiarton's Facebook Page:

SHOUT OUT WIARTON!!!! The Wiarton District Optimist Club will be having their annual yard sale this Saturday August 31st 2013. They would appreciate your help with contributions again this year.

If you are cleaning up and clearing out please contact lynn.wright65@yahoo.ca or 519-270-4670 (evenings only) and arrangements will be made for drop off or pick up of your donation items. 

Baking is also welcome, as there will be another Baking Table set up as well this year. As always , the proceeds go to Local Wiarton Youth projects and Activities.

I donated baked Quick Breads and Cookies last Year, and hoping to make some time to do a bit of baking for them again before the end of the week.  

The YARD SALE will be August 31st. (Saturday) beside St. John's United Church on Berford St., Wiarton from 8 am -3 pm.

I was thinking today, as I do more then my share of this, that how *sad* it is with all the communication being done on the Internet now that the "Art of Writing" has been lost.  I used to enjoy writing letters always before the Internet came along, from a very young age.  I remember the pride I always took in my writing skills, and often think of my Grade School Teacher, Mrs. Pearson.

I am challenging anyone who reads this blog post to writing "one" letter to someone within the next Month, whether it be to a friend, family member, or otherwise.  Please confirm you have done so by leaving a comment on my blog, or by email at justnorthofwiarton@live.ca 

I do not know about anyone else but I sure know I really enjoy getting mail in my mailbox that isn't in the form of advertisement or a bill.  What about you?  Should anyone ever like to drop me a line via "snail mail", I would LOVE that !  at 245 Hwy. 6, South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario  N0H 2T0

I must wrap up this post, as I have a DATE with the love of my life, who would not be Bandit, but with my less hairy husband, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".


  1. I have to write a letter to our next door neighbours in England before we go away, so I will be completing the challenge.

  2. Can I complete the challenge retroactive. I wrote a letter to my Mom while we were in Ottawa? Or do I have to write another one now?

    1. Ha ! nice try Alice, get writing. *smile*

    2. Okay, I promise I will. I have an I'm thinking of you occassion so I will write that letter. Thinking I could also write a letter to my grandchildren. Okay, I'm on it. Alice

  3. I just wrote four letters to my pen friends in New Zealand, England, Poland and Finland. I posted them on Monday. I have one more to write to my longest pen friend Ivana from the Czech Repbulic! Paula

  4. Hmmm, when's the last time I mailed anything that didn't involve a bill?

    I can't recall....

  5. Hi Cindy~ I'd write you a letter but I don't have your address*smile* Lynn @ Turnips 2 Tangerines


How nice of you to drop around to have a wee visit with me to see what I have been up to from time to time. I look forward to your comments as they add much brightness to my each and every day to know there are such wonderful people out there.
