sails, humidity and perspiration (aka sweat!)

We spent Friday afternoon looking out at this beautiful view.

This is near the mouth of the mighty Miramichi River in New Brunswick.  The river is famous for it's salmon fishing and ship building in the 17 and 1800's as well as it's amazing beauty.

What were these people looking at?

I'll share that with you in my next post but I'll give you a hint.

It has something to do with sails.

No, not "sales".

Today is so hot and humid - 28C or 88F.  I was out helping Dad and Lad (hubby and son) clean up the 4 huge pine trees that were cut down 2 weeks ago.  What a mess!  Anyway.  I was merely picking up brush and raking it a bit and tossing a few pieces of wood but the sweat was dripping into my eyes, I'm drenched with sweat and my hair is a fuzzy ball so I gave up after 40 minutes.  I shouldn't be doing this work at all due to the issues with my back and shoulders.  I love to do it and it kind of tears at my pride a bit a lot to not help.  However, this pain in the back is costing us a lot of money to repair so I must refrain.  Besides, it's too hot!

The men have left to dump another load of wood and brush so I'm going to make some lunch and fruit smoothies to boost their energy.  Then I'm going to do some flower planting.

What are you doing this weekend?  

I'll be back tomorrow with a post about the Miramichi Tall Ships Festival.  It was a beautiful sight.

Have a blessed weekend.  Stay cool!



  1. on my toes, i am ... you are keeping us so curious. have a fun weekend. ( :

  2. Ooooh, I can't wait to see those sails!

  3. That's right, Pam, don't you be out there doing that work! Murray will have to run you off. (You remind me of my mother who went into a full-blown RA flare after loading eight cords of wood. Who does that knowing she has RA?!)

    Those sails are going to be beautiful...I can already tell from that itsy-bitsy pic. Don't worry now, this heat will just be a memory in a few days. Stay cool!

  4. Can't wait to see the sails! You sound like me. Completely wet from sweat after just a little work.

  5. Oh I can't wait to see your photos of the tall ships! They must be the same ones that are sailing through the Great Lakes. I am going to see them in Duluth the end of July. I am so excited!
    You sound like me Pam. I sweat so bad after just a little work, plus I have a bad shoulder.

  6. Hi Pamela, Oh what beauty to behold-love water of any kind. Sounds like you are having typical weather; ours is more like early April than June-so windy and cold.
    I say your name the other day on the SUM site, and smiled; feel to free to email me any prayer needs you have.
    Have a great weekend.

  7. A perfect way to spend a hot and humid day .. by the river watching the tall ships.

  8. Tall ships! How grand! I'd be lining up there on the fence too. And I hope your muscle soreness gets better soon.

  9. New Brunswicks looks beautiful. I am used to 88 degrees but, not used the humidity. I am glad you did not do too much. It hard to hold back when you'd like do more, but can't because of an injury. Look forward to seeing the ships!

  10. Wow - hot so soon. I'm glad our temperatures rise slowly - and not too high - I think that they will only get up to the low 70s this week - perfect in my book.

  11. Hi Pamela! Oh, it's hot at your house, isn't it? It's hot here too and out humidity is so high! Oh, I love seeing tall ships. We have one here and it's called the Elissa! I know it travels somewhere every now and then but I don't think it goes to Canada! I'll be looking forward to seeing them.
    be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  12. Your weather sounds a lot more inviting than the 'stuff' being thrown at us over here! Now, I do love a sail (sales too) so I can't wait to see your next post. You take care of your back Pamela! Chel x

  13. Enjoy the tall ships and the cool breezes that are starting to waft into New Brunswick for the evening.

  14. Cool capture of the tall ships, they look beautiful! I also love your pretty header! Lovely images, happy weekend to you!

  15. Oh my, we love it when the Tall Ships come into our harbors . . . so beautuful to see, watch them sail away off ino Lake Michigan. I look forward to your phoos . . .

    Take care with your back . . . did you have some surgery?

  16. We're you able to decipher . . .

  17. So lovely to see.. We did not get your humidity I don't think, Pam.. It was hot but we are having so much rain and thunder storms..
    God bless.

  18. Tall ships are beautiful!!

    We have had the humidity here but I don't think it's going to last!

  19. Oh the tall ships...they came to Steveston one year and the lineups were miles long to see them.

    Hope you get a break in the heat soon.


  20. The tall ships must be quite a sight to see! Beautiful. I hope you get a break from the heat. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  21. Take care of yourself, Pamela. I'm sorry to hear the pain has been bothering you.

  22. Amazing the change in your weather from a few weeks ago! The humidity has hit here! Maybe you all are watching some sailboat races?

  23. We had the hot and humid yesterday too! Amazing how one can just be sitting and dripping.
    I'd by at that fence too and look forward to the photos and will definitely share the post with hubby.

  24. Oh, I Love to see the big sails! My family is from Old Mystic, CT.
    They have some wonderful ships there.

  25. I loved seeling the tall ships through your blog. It was extra yard waste over the past number of weeks,we I know at what you mean about all that brush. This weekend we attended Victoria's Wedding shower and then got on the road for another road trip. This time beachcombing in Nova Scotia, then onto Ottawa for a shot visit. Driving through Fredericton I notice a lot of floading, oh and not to mention the road repairs.
