Gravel, Synod, Cough

On Friday we went to Flower St and raked and shovelled gravel in the rain.  It was just spitting but I already caught a cold and cough from Moms nursing home!  But we wanted to get the heap spread out.  We worked for 2 hours and got about half done.  Went home for a rest and then we went to the auction at the church.  There was a stainless BBQ for sale but I didn’t get it.  Got home about 9:30.  My cough is bad.

Saturday Pam picked me up at 7:30 am and we drove to Synod in Hammertown.  We got home about 4:30.  Win’s basement had water in it so we had called for a service call thinking it was the hot water tank leaking but when we went over to wait for the guy, Hubby decided that wasnt it, it was a crack in the wall.  So we cancelled the service call and went home.  

On Sunday, I didn’t feel good so I didnt got to church.  Hubby went over and put hydraulic cement in the crack.  He just got home, when they called from the nursing home saying mom wanted to talk to me.  Very strange as she never does this and can’t hear but they put her on.  She was upset, she said she didn’t know how she was going to get home.   I said you are home.  She said, no I’m at the credit union and i cant get home.  So because i have a bad cough, Hubby volunteered to go and see her before supper.  He said she was talking a lot and couldnt hear because her hearing aid was broken so he gave her his…and left it there!  I freaked because I didn’t want him to lose his good hearing aid!  I called Bro and he was going down after supper so I arranged to meet him in the parking lot and he would bring me the hearing aid.  He said she was in good spirits and talking a lot too.  

Today, Monday, Hubby is feeling rotten and has a bad cough now.  Ugh!  And of course it is raining again!  So can’t do much.  We went to Flower St to check the basement and then to Shoppers.  I made a beef stew and some apple muffins.  I dug up the yams and the gladiolus from the garden.  Then we went to Rona and bought the baseboard for Flower St.
