Christmas, Boxing Day, Hockey

Tuesday, Dec 25 – Christmas 2018 – I worked until 3 pm yesterday. I was busy at work.  Came home and had BLTs for supper then Hubby and I went to church at 7. Bro came alone as his wife hurt her back.  Win and kids were in Buffalo at Ms until late Last night then came home so they were home this morning.  We got up about 7:30 and it is starting to snow!! Yea!  Win and kids came over about 11.  A picked them up at noon.  We all opened presents and then had dinner about 4.  A nice Christmas.  

Boxing Day we got and did all the dishes, cleaned up, vacuumed and made meatballs and veggie and cheese trays to take to get together at #1 Sons.  Rose was sick so didn’t come and oldest nephew and wife weren’t there either but everyone else was.  A good time.

Saturday, Dec 29 – I met Bro and wife at the nursing home. We took mom down to listen to a pianist playing Christmas songs.  Bro and I decided to enter the Polar Bear dip on Nee Years day.  It is on both our bucket lists. Then I went home and had lunch and read until it was time to leave for the Goobers hockey game.

Wow what a hockey game. In the first 6 seconds Goober got smashed into the boards like a bug on a windshield!  He was down for a long time but he’s okay.  Later he got a goal to tie it up 3/3 but they scored and won 4/3.  Several times there were 3 players from both teams In the penalty box at the same time.  And after the game a couple of the parents were in Each other’s face. Geez!

Came home, had supper and read by the fire.  

Hurt Back and Dancing

Friday night we had an auction at the church.  I did t buy anything.  When I got home Hubby wasn’t feeling good.  His back hurt and it hurt when he breathed.  Saturday morning I had to go to work but I called and got him in the see the doctor who sent him for xrays and thinks he has a broken rib.  I didn’t go for a skate.

Today, I went to church, then had parish council afterwards, then Win and I went to the girls Scottish dance recital for 3 pm.  After supper I went to the Lessons and carol service at the church. Hubby was going to go but he was too sore. Bro and wife came.  Tomorrow I told Win I would help her clean her house if she would help me buy my Xmas gifts.  I haven’t bought one yet! Yikes!

Advent, Fall, Birthday

Sunday, Dec 2 – I started posting a photo-a-day for Advent.  I went to church.  It was so warm and sunny out! I cut evergreens for my urn a d then I did my Christmas cards.  

Saturday Dec 8 – I had an auction outside at a house today.  It was cold but I was dressed warmly enough. Hubby drove by As house today because I bought a bbq at the auction And there was a uhaul trailer in his driveway.  Maybe his girlfriend is moving in.  Hubby took the bbq out of his truck at home and fell on his back.  He almost passed out.  Now he is really sore. Geez he will never wait for me to help him!

On Wednesday I went to euchre.  Win showed up to decorate for the concert on Sunday.  We took the girls for a pedicure and manicure today. I paid for Sugarplum, That was her birthday gift.  I went had supper and then went for a skate at the arena. I had to wait for the Brock U girls to finish their hockey game, it was tied but they lost, good hockey though.  

Sunday, Dec 9 – Win and girls went to church.  I brought Puddin home after and we iced Sugarplums cake while Win and her got groceries.  Then we all went to the concert at the church with a wine and cheese reception afterward.  Then we went home and everyone came over for supper.  I made 2 lasagnas and spinach mandarin orange salad. 

Monday, Dec 10 – I had the day off so did all the dishes from yesterday and vacuumed and cleaned up.  Then Hubby and I went to visit Mom and happened to meet Bro in the parking lot so we all went in and took her down to the cafeteria. There was a bake sale going on so we bought some butter tarts and had coffee and talked for an hour or so.  In the afternoon I did church books.

Ramsey, Party’s, Show

Sunday, Nov. 18 – I put up the rest of the Christmas lights outside and then went to church.  I read the recap of the Synod but I was so hot and nervous, the sweat was dripping down my face. Geez!  We had parish council after.  Then I watched part of the eastern final CFL game between Ticats and red blacks.  Ticats lost so went out and picked up brush etc and loaded trailer.  

Tues we had a stewardship meeting at the harbour restaurant and Wednesday we had a Staff meeting after work.  Thurs I worked late, I put the Christmas tree up and will let the girls decorate it on Sunday.  Friday, I had the day off so I vacuumed and we put the outdoor carpet away then we cleaned up the workshop.  You couldn’t even move in there but you can now.   We are both exhausted.  We went to Walmart and got a new heating pad.  Saturday I am going to make 2 quiches and a ham and scalloped potatoes for Sunday when everyone comes for Wins birthday.  Then we are going to the Copacabana for our work Christmas party.

Hubby didn’t go to the Copa, he stayed home.  So I had to drive. I picked up carol who wasn’t ready so we got away late.  I drove to the restaurant and as we pulled up out front, a shuttle was pulling out from behind it. I told Carol to roll her window down and ask where they came from.  He said follow me. So we let him in and followed him.  He took us to a big private gate that Carol thought looked like a cemetery!  Anyway we left the car and he took us to the restaurant and gave us a phone # to call when ready to go home.  After he left, Carol said, I hope he comes when we call I don’t know where your car is! And I said me either!  But it was fine, we had dinner and called and he came and got us.  

Sunday, Nov 25 – I went to church, and we had stewardship Meeting afterward,  it was over about 1:30.  I went home and had a rest before everyone came for dinner for Wins birthday.  The girls decorated our Christmas tree.

Monday, Nov 26 – After work, I went to the dentist and had a permanent crown put on, then I went to #2 sons to say goodbye to his dog, a beautiful Rottweiler Ramsey, who was cancer and has to be put down on Tuesday.  #2 Son and I went to the Goobers hockey game.

Saturday, Dec 1st – on Wednesday I went to a seminar about astrophotography.  It was interesting but too complicated for me.  Friday, I had the day off.  I took Sophie to the vet for her shots.  She will be 4 in a couple of weeks and weighs 96 lbs.  I did some washing and the dishes, then we took a load to the scrap yard.  We had 500 lbs so got $50.  I worked an auction at the church at night.  Today I went to work, then visited Mom, then we went out to dinner at Swiss Chalet and then saw Bohemian Rhapsody at the show.  It was good.
