THE END OF A QUIET DAY AT BAYFIELD'S DEER PARK LODGE
Half an hour after I posted yesterday's blog, sunlight broke through the clouds, filtered through our living room window, & gently lifted me & my gloomy spirits up out of the recliner & headed us back out the door into the fresh air again.
OUR FRONT YARD FUJI CHERRY IS BLOOMING
Drove into Bayfield, picked up a 6" Tuna sub at Subway & drove over to Pioneer Park which overlooks Lake Huron. While eating the sub I noticed how dead calm the lake was which I thought maybe was the first time I had ever seen the water looking like glass with no waves visible. Next thought was....camera!!
IT IS NOT OFTEN THESE WATERS ARE SO CALM
We live only a few minutes from the shores of Lake Huron so it didn't take me long to slip home & grab a couple cameras. Headed for Deer Park Lodge where Kelly works because at this time of year I knew there would probably be no one there. Deer Park sits high atop the scenic cliffs overlooking the lake & is always a great vantage point for Lake Huron sunsets. Had myself a nice walk on the beach as the setting sun replenished my depleted motivation banks.
AN ANCIENT SEA MONSTER ON THE SHORES OF DEER PARK
Today turned out to be beautiful with temps reaching 80F. Thought about taking the bike for a run but opted to do a little more work in the yard. Kelly was on her way home & I wanted to be here when she rolled in the driveway. She usually has a lot of stuff & needs help carrying everything in, & true to form Kelly pulled in about 1 o'clock with lots of stuff including a new 20" computer monitor & a wireless mouse.
PRETTY BLUE EYE RING ON THIS MOURNING DOVE
I had a Doctor's appointment in Goderich at 2 but was able to help carry in all the loot. Nice to have Kelly home & see the smiling doggy guys jumping up & down with lots of happy tail wagging going on. Since Kelly & I met back in the summer of 1993 this past 10 days is the longest we have ever been apart. I'm sure it was a very nice break for her. Man oh man that girl has stamina!!
A WATERWAY WENDS IT'S WAY TO THE LAKE
My Doctor's appointment went OK & it looks like I have a few sinus issues for which my nurse practitioner prescribed some nasal spray stuff. I have to give myself a couple shots in each nostril every day for the next month & see if the problem clears up. Shot myself up when I got home & immediately felt sick so there must be some powerful juice in that spray.
Hooked up the new monitor & 'wow' what a difference. Gone was that yellow/green cast on the much smaller monitor. I can now upload all my photos into the desk top computer again which means I can comfortably spend my after supper nights back in the sun room again surrounded by my favorite music while putting the blog together.
SUN REFLECTION ON THE WATER
Seemed kinda weird eating something for supper tonight that either wasn't made out of peanut butter & honey, corn flakes, or oatmeal.
Friday morning we are off to visit my Uncle Harry in Woodstock, Ontario. Weather is due to sharply change with possible snow showers late Friday afternoon & we're going to end up with a cold Saturday. Yuk!!
OLD SOL DIPS INTO THE COOLING WATERS OF LAKE HURON
And thanks to everyone's comments & concerns. Happy to say I am over the doldrums hump for another day. I'm sure there are more gray days ahead, as there is for everybody, but until then it's........blogging as usual:))
