Am Off to New Brunswick

Hello everyone, wasn't it great to hear from MIA Marcy. I have to tell you, it made my day to know she is happy and healthy.

I had a really busy day today, I had a dentist appointment at 8:30 and from there went to Curves. I then met a friend for lunch before I came home to finish up getting ready for going home. It was sunny and warm today and again another windy day.

This afternoon I cleaned my jewelry. I have a little machine I plug in, add a little solution and set my rings etc. in a little basket and close it, 3 minutes later everything is sparkling. I love it, I should do it more often really but seem to only pull it out when I am planning on going someplace special.

I have everything packed, my clothes laid out and will only need to put my toilet items in the suitcase and I'm on my way.

Here is the plan, my plane leaves early Wednesday morning and I live over 2 hours from the airport, so I am staying at the Airport Hotel tomorrow night. I am leaving here early afternoon tomorrow so that I miss the heavy traffic going through Edmonton. My girlfriend is meeting me at the Dining Room at the hotel for supper, and she is bringing my camera. It will be nice to see her again. I am able to leave my car at the hotel parkade while I am gone. They have a shuttle to and from the airport. I have to be at the airport by 6 am, so it is easier for me to stay at the hotel. I just can't see me getting up at 3 am, rush around to get ready then make that long drive.....no somehow I don't think I would make it on time.

I want you all to have a wonderful two weeks, stay happy and healthy and I will check in when I get home.....will miss you all my friends......and as always I wish you a Good Night and God Bless.....:-) Hugs

Wanda said...

Good morning Bernie...Is the excitement of your trip building...were you able to sleep?
Shediac is certainly on the beach...I didn't realize how close to Maine you would be...That is such a beautiful area.
Wishing you again...a safe and wonderful trip.
Enjoy...
Wanda

I swear to you, God as my witness...the verification word right now is " stedac "...how odd is that...almost Shediac.

Eileen said...

ENJOY!!
Good idea to stay at the hotel the night before. I hate that feeling of being rushed or fear of being late!

I know you'll have a great time visiting with family and friends, and I look forward to hearing all about it when you get back!

Take care, Bernie!
Love,
Eileen

Rebecca said...

Sounds like you've thought of EVERYTHING! I'm glad you will reconnect with your camera, too. You will be greatly missed. My keyboard finds its own way to your blog every morning! Whatever will it DO?

Blessings each day said...

Oh Good, it looks as if I can still send blessings your way today. Bernie, I wish you God's speed, His blessings and grace on all you do and say on your sweet vacation...may nothing but happiness, laughter and learning abound!

many blessings and gobs of hugs,

marcy

Diana said...

Good Morning Bernie, I don't know if you will see this before you leave but I wanted to let you know that I have been fine. My doctor seems to think that it was nerves or I may have had an infection whatever it was I am feeling fine now so I won't worry anymore. I hope your trip is filled with fun days and that you don't come home too tired! I wish you a safe and happy trip!
Love you Bernie!

Hi Bernie,
You are on your way! Have a wonderful time. Thank you for your comment on my blog, and for your prayers. I actually did get the job at Walmart, part time, plus a full time job Merchandising for Proctor @ Gamble...Hey, I am ok and I am on my way too! Have fun! Take lots and lots of photo's!

Jackie said...

Bernie....I don't know if my comment just went into cyberspace or not. I can't remember if you have to approve your comments...so if you do, this is the second one and you don't have to post it up if the first one is awaiting your approval....but I did want to let you know that I wish you a safe and restful trip with your family...and that I will miss you and am thinking of you. Please, take the best care of you...
Smiles,
Jackie

Bernie said...

Thank you Terri, I will take lots of pictures for sure.
I hope you let our blogging friends know about you now having a couple of jobs as I know they all care about you and are a bit worried for you. They will be very happy that all is working out.
See you in two weeks my friend.
...:-) Hugs

Wanda said...

HI BERNIE...My mornings are not the same...1 1/2 weeks to go till all is back to normal for my morning routine...Selfish of me I know...I will muddle through though...I truly hope it doesn't go by too fast for you...Just wanted you to know you are totally being missed...I know you are having a wonderful time...:)
Take care,
Wanda

Wanda said...

Bernie...just letting you know along with everyone else, even though you are away.......
the computer my photos are on...is down for maintenance...soooo...I've been house cleaning, rearanging furniture, freezing "black and blue" berries, making zuchinni bread, pasta salad, filling bird feeders, working outside because it feels like "fall", doing laundry, and baking a cake today for Herhusband's birthday tomorrow.
That's my EXCUSE for not posting...hope Herhusband finishes the computer today...I Need to work on a post before the Village forgets me.
Wanda :(

Jackie said...

Sunday night....
Hi Bernie...I'm headed out Monday morning, myself...and I wanted to stop by and say hello. I can't wait to hear about your trip....time with your family..!!
Smiles,
Jackie

Blessings each day said...

Just stopping by to say Hi and hope you are having such a wonderful time! Guess you can tell that you are missed.

blessings and hugs,

p.s. Try not to listen to Jackie TOO much...she's kind of, um, you know...a little trouble maker. Just kidding, mostly.

Wanda said...

Bernie is not here; she is away.
Leave your comment for a later day.
Visiting relatives, for a while,
Just can't help, missing her smile.

Thought I'd leave you a little poem Miss Bernie!
Enjoy your week,
Wanda

Eileen said...

Just making my rounds to you, Teresa, and Diana. I told Teresa I know you all have other things going on in your life right now, but it feels good to stop by anyway!

And can you believe Wanda and Diana thinking anyone could forget them?!
Holy Cow! That's impossible!

Sometimes I have to stop myself from visiting them for fear they'll think I'm stalking them and sic Marcy (aka blogger police) on me!

Missing you, Bernie!
Hope you are having a wonderful time with your family and friends!
Enjoy!
Love,
Eileen

Wanda said...

It's 6:35AM and still a little dark out...just trying to break in to see what I can find, while you are away...but, you have everything locked up tight here at your Village place...5 more days, but who's counting.....ME, that's who!!!

Wanda

Jackie said...

Hellooooo Bernie....I'm still lurking around here at your site...knowing that you will be back soon...and wanting to hear all about the great times...and to let you know that I miss you.
Smiles and hugs from Jackie

Wanda said...

Thanks for the message Bernie...I delivered it to everyone! See you soon!
Wanda

Jackie said...

Just another li'l post from me (making sure that you don't forget the donkey of the village...(that would be me!!)...and letting you know that you are missed!!!!
Another smile,
Jackie

Wanda said...
