Busy Week

Last Thursday morning we had a church budget meeting and then I worked late.  Saturday I worked on the church books and the Carolyn picked me up and we went to the Winter Wine Fest to volunteer from 4 pm to 7 pm.  We were in a tent selling tokens.  It was cold and very busy, so busy we ended up working until 8:30.  Then we walked around and had some wine and ani dwindled cream filled donut and a butter tart and then went home.  My feet were frozen!

On Sunday I went to church, and after lunch Hubby and I visited Mom, the I met Dianne at the movie theatre and we saw “The Basis of sex”.  It was good, then we went to Kelsey’s for supper. Watched the new Queen Victoria series on TV.  

Yesterday we stayed late for a staff meeting and had antipastos for supper.  Tonight we went out with the suction gang toLinguinis pasta bar.  I am so full!  I work late tomorrow night and have an auction at the church Friday night, then I work Saturday and then we go to see the girls do Scottish dancing at the Robbie Burns dinner.  Sunday I have parish council.  By next Monday I will be dead tired!

First week

last Wednesday we went to the funeral home for a lady at church and then I went to play euchre at the church.  Saturday I worked.  Sunday I went to church and then went to see mom.  Came home and took down the Christmas tree and vacuumed etc.  We had a leg of lamb for supper.  Monday I had off, I went shopping and did church books, then Win dyed my hair and I went to the dentist for a cleaning after supper.  I was tired and grumpy today and very busy at work.  Tomorrow night I’m going to the photo club meeting. Bro is supposed to go too.

New Years Eve and Polar Bear Dip

On Sunday I went to church then came home and read my book for a while,  about 3:30 I decided to go for a skate at the M centre.  I drove around and around looking for a parking spot finally found one.  I thought it was a free skate but turns out you had to pay.  Skated for a while but the ice was rough and I fell, so left.  Worked on Monday.  We were very short staffed and it was busy.  We didn’t do anything for New Year’s Eve, just sat by the fire, watched TV and read.

Today, January 1st, Bro and I decided to do the Polar Besr Dip in Lake Ontario.  We drove to Bros house and went together.  We paid $25 to register and got a T-shirt.   Everyone ran into the water at the same time at 2 p,m.  The temperature was +4C but the wind was very cold and the lake was brown and wavy.  The beach was all large stones.  Even with our water shoes on it was hard to walk on them, they were slippery and it was steep going into the water.  But we did it!!  We went in and got back out.  It was freezing but we had a robe and towels and out our coat back on.  We rushed back to the car and took our water shoes off.  Our feet and hands were freezing.  Hubby started the car and got the heater going.  By the time we got back to Bros we were warm.  We took some pictures and got changed.  Bros wife made a beef stew, potatoes, green beans and Yorkshire puddings for supper with chocolate cheesecake for dessert.
