A Beautiful Day in Retirement Land

This morning I woke up to the announcement that we had no hot water!  The shower in hubby’s bathroom broke and he had to turn the hot water off.  Well, I’ve brushed my teeth with cold water before so no problem.

The nearby hardware store doesn’t open until 9 a.m. so walked to the Mall where I did some mall-walking.  I belong to the Sneakers mall-walking  group and am attempting to virtually walk across Canada.  I started in St. John’s, Newfoundland on the east coast of Canada, and am making my way west.  But at the rate I’m going it’ll be a long time before I get to British Columbia! 

From there we walked to Canadian Tire, a hardware and auto parts store.  There were no parts that would fit our ancient shower.  But I did see some beautiful pumpkins.  They were for sale for $3.99 each.

We took a different route home that brought us to the Farmer’s Market that is held each Friday in our mall parking lot.  I meant to take a photo but got so caught up in buying fresh veggies that I forgot.

Walking up a street near ours we passed by a  house that has its entire front lawn as a flower garden.  Every season of the year it is a treat to walk by that house.  It is just small but they obviously take great pride in their garden.

John had to go out on his bike to try to get the part.  He tried Lowe’s, but they didn’t have the part either.  They recommended another shop in the next town to ours so John is pedalling his way over there.  The only problem is that rain is predicted to start soon and John could get a little wet!

He got back about two minutes before the skies opened up.  The shower has been repaired already.

I spent the rest of the day, which turned out rainy and windy, working on this computer trying to download a couple of photos but to no avail.  I don’t know if it is a problem with our ISP or of it is something else all together. 

Even my resident techie is stumped.  So, sorry, no photos today.  As you can tell, I am updating with a couple of photos.  My techie found a round-about way to upload the pics.

Has anyone else had trouble uploading photos?  What did you do about it?
