Baking bread today as the humidity finally broke and turning the oven on won’t counter-act the air-conditioning. Been anxious to get some bread made and need to top up the cookie supply, too. Hopefully will get some done on Sunday. 

So Nat’s gone to the driving range while I’m baking. His game is failing him lately and he’s anxious to get his handicap down. Also downloaded a pretty good handicap program yesterday that he can use to keep track and calculate what his handicap is from time to time. Hope it works for him.

Nat and I took a drive to Welland yesterday. Saw a possible house for sale and as we’re not familiar with Welland thought we would take a drive and have a look. The neighbourhood wasn’t too bad, but the house itself looked like it needed a bit more updating than we’re willing to tackle. Nat’s getting anxious now to really move from this area. We can hardly get out of our driveway now, especially when neighbours and others park beneath our tree. So close, but no cigar!!!

Time to go do a little kneading – as we all ‘need’ to be ‘needed’ once in awhile !!!

Born and raised in a small town in Ontario, Canada, with 5 sisters and a brother. Now retired, my husband and I travel, play golf and am slowly renovating our new (old) home. After my kidney transplant in 1999, we've learned to enjoy life to the fullest. Nat and I have driven across Canada, taken an Alaskan cruise and drove home via the Northern United States. We've also been to Mexico, the Caribbean, the East Coast of Canada and Cape Breton. We've done the "Snowbird" thing, having lived in Destin, Florida for a couple of months of the year. In 2007 we changed our travel plans in order to move into and renovate our new "old" home, but hope to someday get back on the road again. We also love returning to Scotland (Nat's origin of birth) to visit his family and tour the Highlands and surrounding Isles.
