Funeral Quilts, BP, Dentist

 I had a dentist appointment Thursday morning and when the hygienist was almost done and just flossing my teeth, he pulled part of a filling out with floss. Ugh!  We decided to leave it for now as the dentist can’t refill it, it has to come out and it isn’t bothering me.  

On my way home I had stopped at a store when I got a call from The Pencil that her blood pressure was super high and so was her heart rate.  I rushed home and drove her to the doctor who sent her to the hospital.  They hooked her up to machines and she waited all day in the waiting room for results and finally gave up as she was feeling better.  She asked me to pick her up and told them to send results to her doctor.  She took her BP when she got home and it was normal.

Win and I went to the funeral home last night.  Verla, a lady from our church passed away.  She was 91.  She was a nice lady, a beautiful quilter and a wonderful baker.  She used to bake homemade bread and pies etc every year for the church bazaar.  She always had a quilt on the go.  At the funeral home they had an assortment of her quilts displayed over the backs of the pews.  Hubby is going to the funeral today but I have to work.  She will be dearly missed.

Sunday Sledding

After church Win and the girls, me and #2 Sons 2 oldest boys and Paul and Porter went to the park by the lake tobogganing.  The lake was very brown and angry looking.   The wind blowing off it was bitterly cold but they stayed out there for a couple of hours.  I took some pictures and then sat in the van with Pete and read my book.  Afterward we went home and built a fire, had hot chocolate, the kids did crafts and we started a new 500 piece puzzle.  They all stayed for supper.  A nice day!

Cemetery, Doghouse, Mom

I am off today because I work Saturday.  I worked at RSP call night last night.  I got home about 8.  Usually #2 Son is home by 10:30 or 11 pm and if not he always calls to say he has gone to his friends hot tubbing or whatever but tonight The Pencil and I waited until 11:30 and he st we started to worry ill wasn’t home and he wasn’t answering his phone.  The last time he texted was 7:30 ish so as he had been working over at the new house by himself, we started to worry that he had fallen off a ladder or something. We got in the car and drove over there but he wasn’t there.  We drove back and over to his friends house and finally found him, alive and well which was good but ugh! He was in the doghouse!

This morning I got groceries, did laundry, and this afternoon I went to a meeting at the church because they want me to be the treasurer of the cemetery as well as everything else.  I hesitantly said I would do it even though it looks like it’s going to be more work for me and one of the men on the cemetery board is a bit of a pain to deal with.  Our cemetery is one of the prettiest in the region and one of only 5 in all of Canada with a natural burial ground.

Then I went to visit Mom.  She was wide awake, alert, talkative and knew who I was!  So that was nice.  Win and I walked the dogs then she came over for supper as I had cooked a roast chicken, mashed potatoes, sprouts, green beans and gravy.  #2 Son got us some free gravel for the extra driveway yesterday so this morning Hubby borrowed a neighbours tractor and spread it out.  It looks good.

Winter Wine Fest and Work Party

Thursday Jan 2 – went for a walk with Win and the dogs then went into work.  On Saturday I painted trim at #2 Sons and worked on church books.  After church on Sunday I babysat the boys and worked on the church books.  Win and girls came for supper too.  Monday I worked on church books, did the dishes, went to Costco, painted trim at #2 sons.  Tuesday I got my hair cut.

Friday, Jan 10– Wine Festival

Carol and I volunteered at the Winter Wine Festival from 6 until 9.  It was drizzling rain a bit so not too many people were there.  At 9 we were done and had some wine and a butter tart and listened to the band and then went home about 11.

Saturday, Jan 11 – Christmas party

Saturday night we had our work Christmas party at Coppolas but the reservation wasn’t until 7:30 and we didn’t get our dinner until 9:30!  Very late.  Some were going bowling after but I went home as it was almost 11 pm by the time we finished eating.

Monday, Jan. 13 – I worked on church books and year end account, then Win and I went to #2 sons new house and painted some trim until about 3 pm.  Then we took the dogs for a walk by the old canal.  On the way back Sophie pulled the leash that was wrapped around my fingers really hard and now my right index finger hurts and is swollen and turning purple.
