I have been remiss. I have watched and responded to your lovely blogs but just couldn't find the energy to blog about my own life. Actually my quiet winter here in this village seems so un-interesting, especially after the years of RV travelling and exploring new sites to write about. That is strange for me. I started a walking programme with my bum leg today. I plan to do 2 blocks around and back to home, and then each day go another block. Maybe I will be able to do the hills by March.
Last Sunday we were invited up the mountain to visit with Andrea and to have dinner. Above is my favourite calico cat that they have. I don't want the bother of looking after pets anymore but do like my friends' pets. Andrea made a special Shepherd's Pie that I will try baking one day soon.
I just tried to talk to my grand son for his eighth birthday but after two calls we gave up...at least he knows I tried to phone him.
We had our favorite Auntie here this week. Donna is Old Man's older sister. She is 81 and qualified for the Alberta Seniors' Winter Olympic Games for bowling. So she was here for 5 days on her way back from a holiday in the heat of Phoenix Arizona, and then had to get back to Alberta to settle in and drive an hour over to Lethbridge, Alberta, where the games are happening. We took her to the airport an hour away in Kamloops, and stopped for lunch with one of her grandchildren's other grandmas at a fish and chip shop. We had a good time with Priscilla and she took Donna to the airport so we could get home before dark. We don't like the halos on the headlights in the dark anymore.
Our oldest son and family live in Ontario. They cope with winter well, and find ways to make it fun.
On our western side of the country it has been so mild, I am starting to want to see daffodils.
