Suffice to say that for today anyway we will begin with a thorough airing out and a good scrub and see if we feel inspired after that.

Happy Canada Day!
I was going to post a pic of our flag which I have flying over our garage....but because of the thunder storms last night it is hanging like a limp noodle this morning. Instead I perused the internet and have borrowed these wonderful images for your viewing pleasure.
In his speech at the national flag inauguration ceremony, Prime Minister Lester Pearson said:
"Under this Flag may our youth find new inspiration for loyalty to Canada; for a patriotism based not on any mean or narrow nationalism, but on the deep and equal pride that all Canadians will feel for every part of this good land."
For more fun this Canada Day take the Canada Day Quiz...I'm not going to tell you my score...but it was darn near perfect.... ;)

The robins have returned to Eastern Ontario, the sap is running and the Canada Geese are overhead in huge noisey flocks. These harbingers of Spring are a welcome sight to these sore eyes. Earlier in the week our old pellet stove started acting up and although the weather is much warmer now we still need to keep a fire on. This necessitated a trip to the stove store in Spencerville and along the way we stopped to take a few photos. I wonder how many sap buckets this knarly maple has seen over the years?
Find the joy in the simple things....Jackie

PLEASE keep checking in as we will be posting interesting pics and tidbits from the auction all winter long! We will be trying to get out on snowshoes whenever possible with "The Hounds" and we hope to share the adventures of Terry and Feu pulling the sleigh.
In the meanwhile keep warm!!
Cheers from The Door
