This picture was taken two years ago on my last day of work....we all gathered together for cake and coffee. There were many tears that day as these were not only work mates but they were my friends.....They gave me a beautiful necklace, earrings and bracelet as well as the most gorgeous crystal bowl, either they were glad to see me go or they were going to miss me. I know I miss them but I am happy to say I still keep in touch with all of them....some more than others as some became life long friends. It was time for me to retire and a year and a half later this GE office closed due to the economy. All of them moved on to some wonderful jobs but we all remember the great times we had working together. Most in this picture were at a BBQ we had this summer. I am so proud of them especially the young people.
I had a much better day today, one of my blogger friends called me this morning and we chatted for at least an hour. I loved hearing her voice as I am able to put a voice to her words. Don't you just love blogging, I know I do. I have made so many wonderful friends from countries all over the world. I don't know why it took me so long to begin blogging but I know why I continue ...... just being connected to others, enjoying their photo's, poems, hearing about their days and their families. I really, really love it.
Tonight I met two of the nurses/friends I do hospice work with for dinner in St. Albert. It was wonderful to see them as we don't see each other through the summer.
I had lasagna, garlic bread and a glass of wine for dinner. I didn't have room for dessert but I did have a French Vanilla Capachunio (sp) and thought of Eileen as I drank it. It was delicious as was my meal. I loved the food, the wine, my friends and the conversation. It's good to be going back to my volunteer work the end of September.
They are calling for a heat wave in Alberta over the next few days, amazing really but I'll take it as I want to bring my wicker furniture on my deck inside and a put it down in the basement.....I don't have a lot left to do outside. I hope everything will fit through my new garden doors.... which by the way I still haven't received my quote for my curtains. I did call today to check and Christine who was here last week is out with the flu and since it's her project they didn't have any info for me. They did say she will e-mail me tomorrow.....let's hope so. I would like it done before I move back to NB in three years. LOL
All in all a good day, as I hope all you had.
Am off to read my favorite blogs and comments....Good Night and God Bless and as always .....many, many hugs.......:-)
