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.
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.
