Normally, I don't put a lot of personal photos on my blog, but will make an exception this time. You see, my in-laws in Quebec have discovered my blog. So this post is for them and is photo heavy. It helps that there is a translate button on my blog that they can click onto and have my English post translated into French. Mind you, the translation is not the best, but it will let them have an idea of what I'm talking about.
We stayed most of our visit in St. Adalbert which is located south of the St. Lawrence River and very close to the Maine border of the U.S.A.
The only place we could use our cell phone was at the top of the hill by the church. It was quite the walk up the hill, but the weather was gorgeous and after being wined and dined by family, it was good to take a walk up that hill and burn off some calories and carbs.
Sick or not, my family celebrated my birthday. This little lady was the official candle blower as I didn't want to spread my germs to everyone else. Yes, that is the big 65 that I celebrated. I'm officially a senior citizen.
Our visits to Quebec City and Ottawa were sad visits. Between problems with diabetes, cancer and dementia, ageing sure sucks.
Then back home by Oct. 1. Yeah, I WILL have time now to relax. Nope.
Since DH and I have been away, time at the cottage to do repairs was lost. So, Monday morning after coming back from Ottawa, DH says that he would like us to go out to the cottage and on our way there, stop in Sturgeon Falls to place an order for wood to be delivered the following day. This is something that I really didn't want to do, but the weather was perfect, so off we went. This time, we took Ashes the Cat with us. She was alone for our Quebec visit and my BIL told us that she was letting out some very moanful meows when he went to feed her. She really missed us. So, she came with us this time. It was her first time at the cottage, and by the second day she was feeling more comfortable.
DH and my brother got to work on a deck. It was rotten and starting to fall apart. They are quite proud of this deck and it sure does look good.
To all of my Canadian readers, Happy Thanksgiving!
Have a great day!
