Monday, Nov 11 Snow Storm
On Sunday I took the boys to church and Win and girls went too. #1 son and wife ran their flea market booth. Then In the afternoon, the girls helped me make applesauce from a bushel of apples from our tree and they made supper for everyone.
On Monday we had a big snow storm Hubby spent the day shovelling and working at #2 sons. I did the church books, cleaned and sat by the fire all day. I made a pot of soup. On Tuesday I pulled a muscle in my leg. It was so sore I could hardly walk. We had a fire again all day.
Sunday, Nov 17/19- Dog Attack
Wednesday night I went to photo club. The assignment was street photography. Thursday morning I finished #1 Sons sign for his flea market stall. It looks pretty good.
Win had an incident Wed. night after Hubby left when she took Pete, her new rescue dog out for a walk to pee, a dog came charging at them from behind that house with the husky, but it was a different dog. Pete was terrified, as was She, she yelled at the dog’s owner to keep him tied up and he should know better (only in angry words). There was no biting, but she got knocked off her feet, twisted her ankle, its sore today. And Pete was flailing around trying to bolt, it was really scary. She knelt down and held Pete until he was calm again. She was a mess however. She cried all the way home and then some more when She got home. The woman from the same house came over to calm them down, that was nice. But she wont be walking him up that st anymore. I went over after work on
Friday night to see them. Pete is very timid, would sniff my hand but not let me pat him.
Yesterday we had a fire all day again. I went to see mom. Today I have to give a report at church about synod and then we have parish council so Maddy is watching the boys. #1 Son is on his own as his wife has gone to BC to visit her sister and took Art with her.
Tues. Nov 5 -Inspection
I did a load of wash, hung it outside, leaned the bathroom, vacuumed, did the dishes, made a shepherds pie for supper, raked up apples and when Hubby came home from waiting for the inspector, we cleaned off the driveway and took a load to the scrap yard. Whew! Got a lot done! #2 Son can start installing the drywall now!
Fri and Sat. Nov. 9 – Synod, Accident
As our church’s lay delegate to Synod. I attended with Pam. It was held at the Linc. Alex. Centre this year. It was inspiring. I sat with Fr Antonio as Pam was a secretary taking minutes. He gave a speech with slides about the migrant worker program. My name was up on the screen the second day for seconding a motion for the audit committee. The guest speaker was excellent. On the Friday #2 Son and wife went to a memorial service at St. Alfreds for Dominick and on the way home B got into an accident. They weren’t hurt and the car is still drivable.
Sun. Nov 3 – babysitting & Flea Market
B and M went to church with me and boys. Arthur was good. He liked the music. He is finally asleep now. Ham, mashed pots, squash in oven, coleslaw made ready to feed everybody when they come home. Hubby went to funeral reception for our old boss.
Monday, Nov 4 – Boats Moved
Hubby and I spent the day moving the boats around and jacking the old one up. We also cut down a small tree and he took it to the dump. I did laundry and all the dishes from yesterday.
Mon. Oct 28 – jazz and lazy day
Beautiful and sunny today. Having a lazy day today, sitting in the sun drinking coffee with Win. I went to the park and took some photos of the colours.
Yesterday I went to church and then in the afternoon I made a spaghetti squash casserole, then went to the jazz vesper service at church.
Tues, oct 29 – Move In and Exploding Eggs
I cleaned out the fridge and made cauliflower and cheese for supper. I left some eggs on the stove to boil and forgot about them. I heard something sizzling and went in to see the pot smoking. I took it off the burner and shut the stove off and a few seconds later, the eggs all exploded! Bits of burnt egg and shells all over the stove, the counters the floor, and under the range hood ugh! What a mess. I cleaned it all up, and kept going, cleaned out the fridge, then went outside a picked apples and We cut the grass hopefully for the last time this year.
Little B moved into the spare room today as he had no place to go. He is so tall his head touches the head board and his feet touch the footboard of the twin bed.
Sat. Nov 2 – lost job
I went to .costco which was a nightmare because half the parking lot was closed off. I picked up apples because the big wind and rain the last 2 days knocked them all to the ground. Then I went to see Mom, had some tea in the cafe. Win found out yesterday that the shop where she works is closing Dec 22 right before Christmas so she will be out of a job. I think she is more angry than anything, she told them so many things they could do to increase business but they didn’t listen. I am babysitting the boys all day tomorrow as D and T got a table at the flea market. They are excited
