Baked a raisin loaf for Nat this morning. Surprised I could function, as the teenager behind us was out on her trampoline again at 4:00 AM. We’re thinking her mother is away this weekend, as she and a boyfriend were out there at 3:15 AM the other day, then at 7:00 AM on Sunday morning and now 4:00 AM this morning. Jumping, giggling, chit chatting and so on. As the past couple of days have been cooler, we’ve been sleeping with our windows open. As a result, we could hear all the goings on – even heard a couple of “choice” words from the boyfriend, but nothing we haven’t heard before. We have no objection to jumping on a trampoline and getting some good exercise, but let’s face it that early in the morning is a bit much, don’t you think? They came close to having a visit by the police this morning, but they settled down after about 5 minutes. 

The other night it was so bad our neighbour had to yell out his window at them. Thank God for that, as I was about to put the hose on them!!!

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.
