On Thursday morning the day before I left London, I took photos of our old Victoria Hospital as it is to be demolished this summer & I had 2 out 4 of my babies in that hospital back in the 1970's.
Look at the day before I left...I will need this in the memory bank for tomorrow!
Bill, Mitch, & Nick arrive late Thursday night.
Friday everything is loaded into the 53 foot trailer, truck, & SUV packed. Lunches are made & coolers loaded, we only stop for gas when needed.
We were on the new 30 highway in Quebec when Mitch radioed us to say he blew out a tire in the trailer! We all pulled over to view the damage, oh my!
Mitchell, pull those pants up!
This is the trailer open - with another trailer inside holding more building supplies & stuff!
Bill & Mitch... assessing the sitution
Well the guys had that tire changed in 20 minutes & we were back on that beautiful new toll highway 30. Thanks for all the highway information Winnie, it was a great not to have to go through Montreal with all the stop lights & with all the weight of the trailer, stop & go is so hard on the gas mileage.
We arrived in Baie-Sainte-Anne at 9:15 pm. Not too bad of a day with a 3am start!
We arrived to find that the water pump had frozen & split, amazing what ice will do to metal. I was upset as it was a brand new one last year. They took the one out of the cottage in Hardwicke & had water running at the wee cottage by 1am. Everyone just dropped into bed after that as the hot water tank would not have hot water till morning.
Yes Annie was right, the sun will come up tomorrow! And it did, what a beautiful day to begin all the tasks of the week...
Mitchell begins framing in the 10 x 12ft deck & clothes line pole. What a sunny day & the water is so sparkly in the sun.
And the clothes lines is sooooooo long. The large equipment in the photo are my next door neighbours.
Now a job for me, to paint the pantry. The green colour was not working for me. lol
A 2nd story view of the clothes line as it crosses over the well (cement pad)
Wow that large 350 diesel truck looks small next to the trailer!
I moved all the bookcases to a dry area & babysat that room all day/night until the leaking stopped.
Sometimes we're really tested to see what we're made of!
And the view out that window is always going to be there too.
Thank you Bill, Mitchell, Nicholas, & Donald for all your help loading & unloading me into the new place. I know you all love me very much to tolerant what I put you all through, to know me is to love me. Thank you my guys. XO
I look forward to your visits this summer!
And everyone else do stop by for a visit on the blog...you all come back now, ya hear!
