I thought I would show you first my peonies that have finally bloomed, then get on to the nitty gritty of what's been happening here at Camp and cottage Living these past few days.
First, we (my grand daughter and I) are on bear watch this morning. We have noticed the last few days that this bear is cutting through our back yard to go for his morning, and sometimes evening, explorations through town.
I know this is a lousy photo, but that's what happens when your camera is in the other room and the bear is moving fast!
These garbage cans are the reason for our concern.
Today is trash pick-up day.
But I am prepared with my fog horn handy and ready to blow!
Realistically, I can't just sit here watching out the window all day.
I have things to do, places to go, and people to see......
Today Starlet, Nana and I plan to go down to the park and walk the path along the lake, then go to get an ice cream cone. Next I am forcing Star to go shopping with me. She strongly dislikes shopping, but it has to be done. Then I expect we will either go fishing or swimming, depending on how warm it gets here. I prefer fishing.
Yesterday Tim and I canned thirty five quarts of various meats.
We put up bacon for the first time. It is easy to do.
We just followed a youtube video and all went well.
I wanted to share this much better photo of the bear we spotted on our way home from White Lake Provincial Park last weekend when Tim's sisters were here visiting. As you can see he was right next to the very busy (to us) Hwy 17 and it didn't bother him at all. He just kept grazing about on the grasses.
I'm hoping ,now that I have my camera handy and ready to go, to get a better shot of the bear that is using my backyard as his thoroughfare.
Wish me luck on that!
