Really, it was before dawn!! Was up at 4:30 AM to get my daughter to the airport for her 8AM flight. She’s off for a few days to visit a friend in Alberta…..her bestie since high school. Nowadays thanks to facebook, facetime, texting and live messenger they’ve had no problem keeping in touch on a regular basis. Both have visited each other many times over the years….although a little more difficult for her friend to get away now that she has FOUR kids!! They have such a good time together…..and like Bev and me….can and do talk about everything and anything….good, bad and/or ugly!
I’m off to my brothers for another marathon picture day. I hope I don’t fall asleep…that’s how exciting my pictures really are! We’re starting even earlier today because I really don’t think I’ll make it much past dinner time tonight….I’m already tired and I haven’t even got started yet. He’s making brunch…..eggs bennie so I can’t wait to get over there and enjoy it.
Still have not heard from my kitchen guy….hopefully today. Although I’m not looking forward to emptying that shelving and all my drawers. I could have gotten started on it yesterday but I don’t particularly want all this stuff hanging around on my table, or wherever else I can find to put it all, for days if its not necessary. Also have not gotten my quote from the granite people….she did say Tuesday or Wednesday but I will follow up if I don’t get an email by the end of today…..I may have to go back into search mode…..
Yesterday we went for a nice 5 km walk along one of the dykes. The weather was perfect, not too hot with even a teeny bit of cloud cover. It was great…we seen osprey in their nests with babies, eagles, ducks, herons, swans…birders, kayakers, boaters and even a bear!! We stopped for lunch (2+ hours….) at a golf coarse that is nestled up against the mountain and a fantastic view across the valley to more mountains….will definitely try to get a game in there one of these days.
I left the house at 10AM and got home at 3PM….needless to say I was not into doing much of anything at that point. I poured myself a nice glass of rose and spent the rest of the afternoon on the deck with my monster Sudoku puzzle. I was still recovering from being busy all weekend! Usually those long walks give me more energy…not so yesterday. We did talk a little more about trip planning for next year and about all we decided was that we need to get together and pick a location and then go from there.
Tomorrow I have to get back to some of my outside jobs. That walkway is my priority……
