A Couple Of Much Needed Rainy Days But Today The Sun Came Back

After three postings with fire I will happily return to more pleasant daily and local reports. After all you can read everything about Alberta in the news. We had a couple of much needed wet days. Unfortunately the rain brought also a lot lower temperatures again. Seems like the real spring weather is still a few days out there. It was drizzling and windy yesterday and we spent most of the day inside. Again I am so thankful for our wood stove which keeps the house warm and cozy.  It was still drizzling this morning but the sun came out during afternoon hours.

I had a little project today as well, as I am acting volunteer for repair of wall shingles on the Head Harbour Lightstation. Every year winter storms are causing damage on the shingles, ripping them right out of the wall. Other volunteers had brought a bag of cedar shingles and a can of bright red paint and so I laid out the shingles and dipped the paintbrush into the red paint.

Didn’t take me long at all to get my fingers smeared red, but since it is water-based it was easy to wash off.
Bea had made a great potato salad which destined to be taken to a church potluck supper at 5pm. So after our coffee break we went to the supper and met a lot of community members. What a great way to meet up with everybody. I must say we are thriving more and more in this community and we cannot imagine to live anywhere else.
