Thousand Islands Cottage Trip: Day 3 (Wolfe-Island)

It was another relaxing morning. I naturally woke up at 6:30 am and noticed it was sunrise time. I walked out to the sunroom attached to the bedroom and there it was! I don’t remember the last time I was able to see the sunrise. I have been up at this hour (or earlier) but… Continue reading Thousand Islands Cottage Trip: Day 3 (Wolfe-Island)

Thousand Islands Cottage Trip: Day 2 (Wolfe Island-Gananoque)

We had a relaxing, lazy morning at the cottage as the weather continues to be wet. We had lovely American breakfast with scrambled eggs, sausages, bagels, croissants and fruits.

Location/Ambience Carlington Coffee House is located in an interesting part of Merivale where it is mostly residential buildings.

PC Express Review: A Contact-Less Grocery Alternative

Given the current recommendations to avoid any non-essential trips in the community, we haven’t step foot into a grocery store for over 4 weeks now by alternating meal kit delivery services with online grocery pick-up services. Ideally, we were going to use direct-to-home grocery delivery services like Instacart but there have not been any available… Continue reading PC Express Review: A Contact-Less Grocery Alternative
