Preparations

money, money, money...

money, money, money...

Picked up my Canadian Dollars today. Very pretty money, especially when it’s brand new, crisp and clean. Also got some mossie repellant and a bite pen as I’ll be spending time by a lake near Ottawa. Wouldn’t have thought of it but a good friend of mine who lived in Canada for a few years was invited to a BBQ by a lake near Ottawa around this time of year and apparently everyone stayed indoors because of the mossies while the poor cook ran in and out flipping burgers as quickly as he could. Maybe I won’t need the spray and pen but better to be safe than sorry. Just need to clean my harps and launder what I’m taking (not very rock’n’roll I know) and I’m pretty much done. So for the next few days there will be a growing pile of stuff in the bedroom – as usually happens before a trip – which will get flung in a suitcase the night before the flight.

    Mark, mosquitos shouldn’t be a problem next week, but it doesn’t hurt to be prepared! Just be happy you weren’t here this past week with this heat wave we’ve had (30s – 40s)… Things start cooling off Saturday, and back to normal temps. By the time you arrive Monday, the weather will be perfect with daytime highs 20C…
