We went to the pancake supper on Tuesday. I worked today and a guy saw my post on the bulletin board with an IPhone 7 for sale for $600. I really wanted the 7 Plus as the camera is better and it Turns out it only has 32 fb storage not 128, so I don’t know. He lives in Markham, so I could go visit Min and pick it up.
The new minister is being inducted tomorrow at 4 pm so will go to that and there is a dinner after. Trying to talk Hubby into going. Moms name came up to the top of the The Manor list so will probably move her there. Once they notify us for sure we have 24 hours to decide. It would probably be half the cost of where she is now.
Win is having Ps birthday party tomorrow at the YMCA. I am babysitting the boys. Will have everyone here for the birthday on Monday.
-#1 Son and wife were all set to put an offer in on the house with the turquoise bathtub (it had good bones but was decorated from the 70s and 80s) when another one. Are on the market, they looked at it right away and both loved it so put an offer in of the asking price $350 and someone else put a same offer in after them so they took their financing condition off and they got it! The house inspection is Thursday. It’s very nice and needs no work.
Saturday was snowy and blizzardly so I worked on church books and stuff most of the day, Hubby shovelled driveways. Watched the olympics all day.
My back is sore today from tobogganing yesterday after church. Don’t think I should go tobogganing anymore. LoL
D and T put an offer in on a dead guys’ house. At first they heard it was suspicious and then that he got beat up and died at home but now found out he committed suicide, but the offer came back too high. #1 Son wants to make another offer but T thinks it is bad luck. They are looking at another one today that is less money but is decorated from the 70s or 80s so will need a lot of wallpaper stripped off and painting. It has a turquoise bathtub LOL. They were looking at one yesterday and Mason fell on his face and cut his chin open. They had to go to the hospital and they glued it shut. That is why they didn’t come tobogganing.
Cold but clear today. I advertised moms piano at work and I have guys coming to pick it up this morning so that is good. We are meeting R and D for supper at the cats caboose and then going to see a movie. They wanted to see jumanji (blah) and since Hubby is going I guess that’s what we will see.
The full moon hit yesterday, just crazy people and problems. One lady came in and said she deposited 50k in 2005 and hadn’t taken any out so it should still be there and it wasn’t lol surprise surprise. Our records only go back to 2008. I said you’ve received a statement every month for the last 10 years and never asked before now? Just crazy!
i went to Moms for a short visit and set up preauthorized for her care. They said she had fallen out of her chair but not hurt herself. They think her chair is too high, Bro and I think it is too low. He thinks his sis in law has one. We will go his house tomorrow to take the bookcase etc.
Sat. Jan 27, 2018 ~ We had an auction in the church hall last night but I didn’t buy anything. I worked today and then met Hubby at Moms condo and we got a few more things and then went to visit her for a while.
Sun. Jan 28 ~ We had our Vestry meeting and it was over in less than an hour. I volunteered to be the Delegate to Synod because I wanted to vote for the new bishop. I didnt realize it was a 2 year stint though!
Monday Jan 29 ~ On Thursday morning, #2 Son, Hubby and I went to Moms condo and we cleaned all the rest of the furniture and stuff out. We just bunged everything into boxes. We filled my car, Hubbys truck and #2s truck. We only left the piano and a file cabinet. We dumped everything into our dining room. So today I started going through it all and sorting into boxes to go to auction, value village and the dump. Win came over and sorted out her CRA problem. She discovered she didnt owe them any money after all which was good.
After supper #1 Son and wife asked Hubby and I to go and look at a house they want to buy. We actually looked at 2. THey put an offer in on one but quite a bit lower than asking price as it had a bad leak in the basement.
Tuesday, Jan 30 ~ After supper I met Rev Pam at St. Toms for the meet and greet the candidates for bishop. They each gave a 5 minute or so speech. And then there was time to ask them questions. It was quite interesting. I had had 2 in mind that I would vote for but after the speeches, I changed my mind on one.
#1 Sons offer on the house came back too high and their second offer wasnt even answered. It has a pool and I am just as glad that they didnt get it. I think it would be too much for them.
We went to the Robbie Burns dinner along with Win, M and kids. A and his dad got there before us and sat at a table with the girls and some other people so we got the table next to them In the corner and the girls just bounced back and forth between the 2 tables which was fine as they were off dancing and stuff too. Mikes kids were good. They had a kids menu of Mac and cheese, hotdogs, meatballs etc so that was good. The roast beef was good, the lamb was a bit dry, the mashed pots were really good. The haggis was very peppery and hot, which E told me isn’t normal, usually it is very bland with oatmeal in it. It was too hot for me. The cochileekie soup was really good, like homemade chicken noodle with leeks instead of noodles and lots of stringy chicken. Sticky toffee pudding and apple crisp and shortbread for dessert.
church and then a refugee meeting tomorrow.
On Wednesday night we went out for our auction Christmas dinner at a local Italian restaurant. I ate way too much. I had a raspberry samosa, then a sangria which was really good, then he bought us all a creme de menthe with baileys and chocolate shots. I had a skor cheesecake with whipped cream for dessert. They were awesome! Friday night we had a snow storm with freezing rain. Today was nice and sunny but cold. I went to the rental and finished the grouting on the backsplash. Then I went to see mom in the afternoon. I have parish council after church tomorrow.
I worked yesterday and then visited Mom. I took her Christmas tree down. Went to church today but we were all late. My car wouldn’t start. It’s on the charger. And there was a baptism so we sat upstairs in the balcony. Puddin is so funny. She didn’t want to go up, she is afraid of heights. But then after awhile being up there she was fine. It’s like she has to psych herself up to it. We were going to go skating but didn’t. Took the Xmas tree etc down and vacuumed. Did some church books. Played password. Had a fire. Hubby made a stuffed pork tenderloin, green beans, pots, gravy. Donuts and cookies for dessert(from Norma). It was SO good!
Mon. Jan 1/18- Very very cold today again. We babysat Clive last night and this morning. I took him to the local park and met Win and the girls and her friend P and his son and we all went tobogganing this afternoon. It was sheltered from the wind so wasn’t too bad. Came back and had hot chocolate. I cooked a leg of lamb and turnip and Brussel sprouts from our garden for supper. I gave #1son some to take home for their supper.
Thur. Jan 4/18 – I went and played euchre at the church last night. We had 13 people out, then this morning I went to the dentist just for a cleaning but it took forever as my dentist retired and a new young girl took his place. So they were updating all the records and doing everything very thoroughly, it took forever! I work Fri and Sat. Went to Goobers hockey game after work at a tournament at Jordan arena. It was tied 1/1 but then his team scored I. The last 23 seconds. He is in the semi final tomorrow morning at 10 so I can go as it is my late day. Hubby might even go.
Monday, Dec 25/17 – Christmas Day. Hubby and I had hot cross buns and grapefruit for breakfast by the fire. Everyone came over about 11 or 12. Dinner was ready about 5. We didn’t pick up mom because it is very cold and snowy. We opened gifts before we ate. Because M and his kids and Wins girls weren’t here, we ate in the dining room.
Tuesday, Dec 26- Boxing Day. I made meatballs and coleslaw to take to
Hubbys sisters for our family get together there. We got there about 2:30 and left about 8:30. Kevin brought some feathers from a turkey they shot. Back to work tomorrow and Thursday.
Friday Dec 29/17- I took Sophie to the vet for 8:15 to get a shot. Returned home and had my tea. I was going to do grouting at Flower st but was too tired. I vacuumed and cleaned up instead. Win and M went to the first ever outdoor hockey game between Canada and the USA in Buffalo. It was snowing and freezing cold there. I sat and watched the game on TV.
Today, I did some laundry and then went to Flower St and did some grouting on the backsplash. Then I went to visit mom. Her friend, our old neighbour died this morning. She was 96.
