Well, I am learning the process of writing posts on my blog. It isn’t difficult but there are many things to remember. Yesterday a friend helped me navigate the site necessary for posting on my blog page. This is my first attempt at going solo. Hope all goes well.
I finished my first flower bed last week and am now working on my other flower bed. Boy, what a job. I am very sore from bending over and clearing out all the roots of weeds, grasses, etc. I also dug out flowers that are not producing, dead plants, etc. What a job it has become! The final product will be beautiful and frame the house well but… I will finish the rest of the gardens when we return from holidays.
This evening is the fourth installment of the newest event to hit town – the weekly Port Colborne Downtown Cruiser’s Association Car Show! And what a hit it has been! Last week alone there were more than 130 vintage and muscle cars and everything in between! If you know anyone that has a nice car to show off, share the association’s Facebook page with them and invite them to come! It’s every Thursday night until September with the cars displayed along Clarence Street from West to Elizabeth Streets. Drivers that register their cars on arrival (in front of Eataly) will recieve a voucher for FREE food and be eligible for prizes at the end of the summer! If you are coming to the show, remember that the city closes the Clarence Street show area from 5p – 9p. Thanks to the organizers and sponsors that have worked so hard to make this successful. I will be looking for my friends on the street this evening. See you there and every Thursday night this summer!
Tomorrow and Saturday are reserved for getting things ready for our trip and holiday to our trailer in the Gatineau mountains. We will be leaving early (5:30 am) Sunday morning and hope to be by mid afternoon and for 3 weeks. It’s a shorter than usual summer getaway because of fall election. My son Luc will still be home since he has to work.
Got to go. I need to play with this software to make certain I am touching the correct buttons to get the effects that I want. I am certain my friend will find something to correct or redirect. He is the pro and I am the student. I’m not used to role reversals 😉
P.S. – Check out the new Calendar on my website. It was activated a few hours ago and is included to give you an idea of the activities and meetings that will be going on in the months to come. There are also listings of events in and around Port Colborne! New pages and features will come online over the next few months that may help you know who I am and why I love getting involved with my community. See you soon.
