Hello my friends. I am home and back to a bit of a routine. I cannot tell you just how much I am enjoying sleeping in my own bed.
We have had horrible cold, windy and wet weather - that is until today. It was absolutely gorgeous outside today. I even managed to walk for almost an hour this afternoon and my face is sunburned. I had to go downtown for a medical test. I was given an injection and then had to wait almost two hours before the test was to be done so I went for my cup of coffee and then my walk to pass the time. It was glorious and I could see it on the people's faces as I met them. Something happens to peoples spirits when it is a sunny crisp day.
I arrived home around four, and strange as this sounds my young cleaning lady had been in and the house was so clean and smelled so fresh. Now what is strange about it is I had spent 8 days at my nephews and cleaned through his house several times, his house is four times bigger than mine and I don't always do my own cleaning. My nephew's house is up for sale so every time there was to be a showing I would dust, vacuum, polish and clean. I want the house to sell for him so badly, he is having such a rough time. I know it will happen eventually, and all will work out. It always does.
I am going back for another week in October. Greg has to go away with his work and Fallon and I will spend more time together. She is so sweet, she cracks me up with her expressions and I love listening to her laugh and sing, now her dancing is another story......she is a great kid. Expensive but great......I know God has put this precious child in my life for a reason. She won't like being called a child, she is 13 and in her mind, all grown up. She is very mature for her age but to me she is still a child who needs tons of love, understanding and patience. She does very well in school and is madly in love with Justin Bieber. In fact her dad made it home on Sunday in time to take her and her best friend to his concert. She text me when she got home.......had a wonderful time and she was in love!
Driving home Sunday it was pouring down rain, after 45 minutes it turned to a wet slushy snow......I just couldn't believe we were receiving snow so early. None of it stayed on the ground. My house was freezing when I came in as the heat was off while I was away and we had such a cold week. I lit a fire and also turned the fire on. I went to 5 o'clock Mass so the house was warm when I got home, I was only gone 45 minutes. I ate a sub sandwich and went to bed early and slept almost 14 hours. I know, it's hard to believe but I was exhausted so I think you could say I crashed.
Monday I was up early and out the door to do some grocery shopping. Madi arrived around 3. Madi is my friend Pat's granddaughter (I bought my condo from Pat over 11 years ago) Sometimes she comes over after school for a couple of hours until her Dad picks her up. She only comes here when her Gramma is busy with something. I don't mind at all, she is another special little person in my life. I am so blessed as I love children and I have so many wonderful children in my life.
Tuesday was doctors appointment and today was test. So far so good, all is well. I know this for sure as I feel much better, in fact I would feel great if I weren't so tired but thankfully not nearly as tired as I was. Everything is going to be fine. I am hoping to play Bridge with the girls each Wednesday and spare in mixed Curling on Friday nights. We need a certain amount of people before we can have the ice or even a table........keeping my fingers crossed.
Okay I think I have filled in all the blanks, and I am sure you are all bored to death by now. All is well in Alberta. Many people collect many things, now me I just keep on collecting friends. Life is good my friends.
