Hello my friends, how was your day? I had such a busy and full day today just doing what needed to be done.
It was really cool here today, we had rain and high winds which was really cold. The weather man is calling for frost in my area tonight. Can you believe it? July 9th and they are calling for frost....unbelievable!
My brother called me this morning from home, thank heavens they are having beautiful weather. I kept telling myself all day as I was shivering, that next week this time I will be swimming in the Ocean and my feet will be walking on warm sand. Oh yeah, only 5 more sleeps.....
I started my day at Curves....I wonder if they have a Curves near the beach? I will miss my work outs if they don't. From there I was off for a damage assessment on my car. Would you believe its $450. in parts and $2200. for Labour. Honestly, we all should of been body shop workers. How much an hour do these men get paid? Not only that, I was there almost 3 hours as they worked everything out and called around for parts and matching paint colors. I thought I was in the Twilight Zone....you would think they would have quicker contacts and phone numbers being the business they are in. These kind of things make me so thankful the Good Lord blessed me with patience.
Leaving there I headed for my blood test, I had to fast before I could have them so I was really hungry. Again there were many people ahead of me at the Lab so I had another wait. After 45 minutes, lab work completed I headed across the street to Tim Horton's and had a bowl of soup, biscuit and coffee. It tasted as good to me as a freshly cooked turkey dinner with all the trimmings. Food taste so much better when you are really hungry.
I then went to the Bank, filled the car with gas and did some shopping. I needed a couple of outfits to wear home that fit me. My clothes are getting too big and I felt sloppy in them. So I have a couple of cute outfits and couple of more tops that match everything from my jeans to skirts. When I left my favorite store, The Bay, I stopped at Chapters to pick up a couple of novels to read on the plane.
I returned home to a sparkling clean house and was so thankful. After putting everything away I settled down to watch the football game. I had a plate of fruit for supper. Green grapes, strawberries, blueberries and half a banana. So good as the fruit was fresh off the truck from BC. I bought it from a little stand in town. I also picked up a pineapple and some cherries but haven't tasted them yet.
Now tomorrow should be more relaxing as I am having a facial, manicure and pedicure. These "me" days are fun and I think we all should have these kind of days at least twice a year but I try and go every 3 to 4 months especially if I am going away and will be wearing sandals and my jewelry every day.
Well that's my day, not exciting but productive and taking me one step closer to going home......I get this happy feeling every year before I go home. Family to me is everything, they have their own lives but you know they love you, you trust them and they always give us a soft place to land should we ever fall. My family have always been there for me as I always try to be there for them.
Until tomorrow my friends.....Good Night and God Bless......:-) Hugs
