Where does the time go? Already, it's been almost a week since I posted.
Mum and Dad went home on Sunday, we had a good visit and they will be back soon. My Mums second cousin and her husband are coming up from the States for American Thanksgiving. I call them Aunty and Uncle. So we will have another nice family get together then. I havent had so much company since I cant remember when.
Sunday was the Remeberance Day Holiday. All my family went to the cenotaph for the observace. They were all in the parade. Keith's brother mike was there too as part of the RCMP contingent. He looks so good in his red surge police jacket. Of course his wife and family were all there too. I didn't go this year as I was having my daughters girls group over for lunch after the ceremony. My dad took some pictures for us which I will post later. I find it difficult to keep a dry eye when I see all the old soldiers out to remember their fallen commrads. I am glad my kids still feel an obligation to attend this very solomn ceremony.
After lunch I went to work at 3pm only to discover that I had been double booked. I was sent home. I was a bit annoyed because I was going to be paid extra because it was a holiday. Today by boss phoned and said it was her mistake that I was double booked and that I would be paid for the whole day! She is in a bit of hot water over it but at least I am not out a days pay!
Today Keiths back was finally feeling better. He has been resting his back all week. So today we finally got the tool room all tidied out. We still need to get the dry wall up and the tiles layed. Then it will be all ready for the waher and dryer to move in. I am in no rush, we don't want him to restrain his back, so slow and steady for the course.
Today I also raked up the rest of the leaves from the back yard. A couple of nights ago we had a HUGE wind storm. I think it blew off any leaves that were still on the trees. All except for the willow, it always lasts longer than the rest of them. The morning after the storm, I headed down the street to go to work and one of the neighbours trees had fallen over. It lay right across the road, ending up on the doorstep of the house across the street. I turned around and went the other way to work. When I called home later, on my coffee break, Keith said all the neighbours had been out there with chain saws and had chopped it all up and stacked it off the road. It was a huge mature cedar tree. He said he went out to see the tree and they had already cleared it away. Amazing what several men with chainsaws can do. Now it sure would be nice if these guys would like to come and do my drywall and tiles! But I dont think anything has the same aytraction as chopping things up to bits with big old noisy chainsaws. I am sure when it was all done they were looking around saying "That was fun! What else can we chop up?"
That was about all the excitement around here lately.
Oh my youngest son got a job, he starts tommorrow after school. Congratulations David. Just part time, but its a few bucks of his own for his pocket!
Thats it for me. Take care!
