Veranda Gift Shop is closing

Today was the last day the Veranda Gift Shop in Hillside Beach was open.

Paulette and Ian have decided to retire and have sold the premises.

Originally Ian ran the McDonald Tool Rental shop from the property at the corner of Hillside Beach Road and Harry Craig Road.

My roof finally has insulation!

After 35 years our Pan Abode finally has some insulation!
I had a company from Niverville, Peak Exteriors, add an insulation layer. Steve and his team did a really good job there!
I am almost looking forward to winter, so I can find out how much of a difference the new insulation makes.

I used ice to defrost my water line

As usual one of the first things I do, when I get back to my place is to get the water running.
I just don’t feel right starting the day without a proper shower.
Something wasn’t right. When I got inside I knew what it was. The pump hadn’t restarted. My new underground lines were still frozen!
