Last of the Hot Days and a Window Project



I believe today was the last of summer's hot days. Tomorrow clouds will move in and bring more moderate temperatures.  Some areas of Canada have already had a taste of what is to come. I saw this on the weather channel:

The first flakes of the season fell across parts of Eastern Canada on Thursday, ending the month of August and the final day of meteorological summer with a dusting of frozen paradise accumulating on roads winding across higher elevations.

We had two windows in the sunroom that needed changing before winter and today was the day to get that done. DH with the help of 2 sons managed to get it done before lunch which I thought was quick.
There was a minor mishap when DH slashed his finger with an X-acto knife and required several band-aids. The reason the windows needed changing was because the seal between the 2 layers of glass (double pane windows)  had broken and water streaks marred our view. 

pondering the next step

In order to feed my menfolk I got the breadmaker going before we went for our walk. We stopped off at the grocery store and still got home before the dough was ready for me to form into buns and set to rise. Meanwhile  I made a dozen Pear Crumble Muffins from a recipe that I've made 3 times in the past weeks. It's actually  a recipe for peach muffins and the first time I made it I had fresh peaches on hand. The next times I've used pears and that has been just as tasty.

Our walk was around Willband Creek.  Two pictures taken there recently by another walker.

I hope you're having a pleasant weekend. Thanks for coming by,  GM
