still

I think today is the last of a 2 week string of wonderful weather - at least that's what the forecast is saying. From our first day out we have had unseasonably warm, no, make that hot, weather. It has been fantastic.

We spent our last day here at the Falls doing some running around: Picards Peanuts, return empties to beer store, groceries. That left the afternoon free for some r&r. Carm did some light reading, if the Economist could be considered light. I wasn't able to settle into reading but managed to pass the time anyway. At 5pm it was time to pack up the outside stuff that we didn't need anymore to prep for leaving tomorrow morning. Dru suggested leaving by 9 or 9:30 to avoid the Toronto cottage rush. Sounds like good advice.

I was proud of Carm today - we were talking with Brenda from Alabama and he didn't bite when she made a few political comments against Obama. We can guess a Southerner's attitudes about him just from his colour, although it would be wrong to assume. But Carm stayed quiet (it must have nearly killed him…)!

Grace was happy to spend some time outside, especially when Brenda stopped by. She has a lovely Southern accent that seemed to mesmorize Grace. While Grace loves being outside, she's happy to be inside as well. Her corner location gives her plenty to look at. She's inside now, gobbling a huge bowl of food - she can't seem to get enough to eat these days - she's eating like a horse!

We are having leftover Green Acres for supper again tonight - wowzers what a meal.
