Just keeping at-it!

Good Morning Sparklers!
Another day is beginning---
To-day , husband and I , hope to finish staining the deck--We were overtaken by fumes yesterday---had to quit--- so cut the front lawn--It's like, ""no rest for the wicked here""--Ha Ha----supposed to be 26C to-day--hot!
The leaves are starting to change---the days are shorter--the furnace gets turned on the odd day now.
I heard on our local radio station that a new Uranium mine will open north of us.
There hasn't been Uranium mining in this area for 30 years. Our mining town turned into a ""retirement "" community years ago. I suppose that's why they are up grading the highway we take , to get to town---repaving it----huge equipment all over it and it's a challenge to get to town as they keep their equipment working.
Yesterday, on the way into town, I was stopped , waiting to get the signal to go ahead, and there beside me, was a huge black bear, standing up , looking over the guard rail. It was as if he couldn't figure out what was going on-I felt kinda like we were invading his space--poor guy!
So, I must get the laundry in--(remember-no rest thingy?)--I see my weight is down another half a pound---YEAH!!!! I sure am trying to think before I pop something into the mouth--
Enjoy this day--------remember to write it, if you bite it!

- Just keep dancing--

    Very cool to have seen the bear. Some say the message if a bear appears in our lives is to go within to solve problems and promote healing. With you being so busy, this might be appropriate. LOL!

    Congratulations on the weight loss!

    I do like that, if you bite it write it.
    The Bear part scares me!!!
    I only saw one between Peterborough and Ottawa, cross Highway 7, 1/4 mile ahead of me, and I didn't even want to drive that far ahead in case he was not yet off in the woods.
    Makes me thing twice of ever camping again!

    Gotta love The North! Had that happen to us when we lived in Thunder Bay.. only it was a Bull Moose, near Red Rock.! Glad to hear the mines are coming back to Elliot Lake. emoticon

    A black bear on the bridge. I would probably have "freeked out" - for sure!

    Hope you have a good day. Keep up the great work.

    I love fall - it is my favorite time of year - snuggle weather.

    Love the photo!

    You are one busy Sparkler! BTW, I resemble your blog picture this morning! LOL Up @ 4:30 am with DH (has to go to an early meeting 2 hrs. away so out the door @ 5?30 am).

    so, got started on my exercises a little earlier than usual, and watched a gorgeous sunrise.

    Have a good day and don't work TOO hard. WOOT on the 1/2 lb. loss. Way to go!

    No staining or mowing here, it's been raining for four days now and they just showed three more to come. Have fun.
