Good morning to everyone - I hope that you are all having a wonderful start to the day. I really enjoy when a new month, October, starts at the beginning of the week, Sunday. It ticked several aspects of being "that type" of person. All good.
It's good to be back after a blog break, not that I intended it to be so long, but boy did life get right up in my face.
The welcome memo to the new front desk receptionist was sent & she starts today at 2pm. I think she will be a good fit, she's local only wants part time & not that this had anything to do with swinging things her in favour, but she scrapbooks! Finally I have someone to talk scrapping with although she did not know about December Daily. Tea breaks will look after introducing her to that!
We have not as yet secured a new physio therapist, but in this circus that is not a monkey I have to worry about!
In our province our health care is taken seriously & they send reminders to you about check ups for certain types of cancers. Since all the tests are free, it is just a simple job of making the appointment. In the mail last week, I received two notices for certain tests, appointments booked & I give thanks for health care.
I attended another card making (mostly stamping) workshop - oh the fun that I (me) had.
In the shopping basket this week, my latest discovery; Cauliflower & Broccoli tots - oh my goodness they were delicious! Mr Man did not know he was eating vegetables, he thought they were "tater tots". These item are back on the grocery list.
Our church is having a new type of fund raiser; "Time, Talent & Treasures". They are asking people to either donate an item (treasure) or a talent (teaching someone to do something you are good at) or time (doing something for someone). I am sorting through things I haven't used but thought at the time they were much needed items ... I'll say no more about that folly of shopping!
Reading: My Last Lament. It was a random choice, just saw it displayed at the library & the jacket review made it sound a good read. I'm half way through. Very interesting in that it's the story of a last lamenter in Greece & her tale of how she began during World War II. Never read anything on that perspective - interesting with a few historical facts worn into the story.
I am also reading the latest issue of the Creative Scrapbooker (formerly known as Canadian Scrapbooker).
Last week in the midst of work chaos was the sale closing of the farm that I ride at (now I have to change that to rode at) so I had to take a really quick tour of the farm to take lots of photos. I must admit it was not only tears that were shed but I had several sobbing moments. All the horses have been moved to other stables, a couple of the horses are moving just up the road from me (yeah) & the lady that did mucking, feeding & turn out, is also moving to work at the stable up the road (yeah). The man that has bought the property decided in the end he didn't want boarders, won't live there immediately & he is gutting the barn, the arena, the house & the stable help apartment! He paid 2.6 million (Canadian dollars) for this beautiful property & he wants to gut it! More money than .... I'll say no more.
So that's my long winded catch up.
