Out I go first thing to take everyone for their first out and about, only to walk out the side entrance door into three inches of water pooled there. Yes the shovel had to be used to remove some of the ice around that was not allowing the water to drain away from the house. What a mess ! I am happy to report it did the trick, as it finally had cleared away later in the day.
After everyone was looked after I was thinking a nice relaxing second cup of coffee would be in order. WRONG ! I realized I had made arrangements with a girl who had bought a brand new Slow Cooker from me off the swap was to meet up to get it from my "Crabby Cabbie" today. What was the problem here? of course I hadn't sent the Slow Cooker along with him, resulting with me meeting up with him 1/2 hour one way away to give it to him.
Back through downtown Wiarton I came, first making not one stop, but three in total, before arriving back at our house to let Missy Preggo Lexus out before heading back downtown Wiarton for the VON SMART exercise program.
Timeline for all of this ? it took between the hours of 8 and 9:30 am.
The VON SMART exercise program in Wiarton runs from 10 - 11 am, every Wednesday. Once I had finished up there, off I went on again not just one, but again three more stops in Wiarton before arriving back home after the lunch hour.
In my travels I was happy to have met up with one of Bruce County's Celebrities ....
Back home everyone of course needed in, out and about. The remainder of my afternoon included one various phone call after another. Oh man phone calls really do consume a huge part of a day when things have to be looked after, or inquired about.
The one call I had made was to the Grey-Bruce Public Health Unit in Owen Sound. My brother had informed me about the Shingles Vaccine being a must for someone who has had the Chicken Pox. I had the Chicken Pox, still showing the scars from it.
Should you have had the Chicken Pox and need to know about the Shingle's Vaccination then check out the following links:
Public Heath, Grey-Bruce:
Shingles: Causes, Symptoms & Complications
What I had found out from my call to the Health Unit was this vaccine will be costing $180.00, should you not have a Medical Insurance Plan to cover it. From what I had been told about Shingles, a small price to pay to avoid any chance of the pain and discomfort that goes along with having Shingles. Something we all have to decide whether or not it is worth it to us as an individual.
Last night for Dinner, I made a "new to me" Knorr recipe.
Recipe please? Just a *click* away HERE.
Winter was "back, now gone again" .....
According to the weather forecast we will be back into below freezing temperatures by Friday. Anything goes in Ontario, does it not?
Hahaha ... thanks a couple of my Family Members for sending me this email, as I had not seen it for sometime. Ha, how could I help but NOT share it?
My blogging buddies are up to it again !!! Carla at My 1/2 Dozen Daily is having another Give Away, usually something that is ALWAYS Handmade by her, and Debby at Nanny's Place is having a February Challenge. The Give Away, of course I entered as I am not going to miss out on a chance at winning one of Carla's homemade creations, and Debby's Challenges? of course I had to enter one out of the two she is offering up, as who can resist a challenge?
Even though I rarely read anymore, a pass time I have mentioned before I loved very much at one time, I found the review William Kendall at Speak of the Devil had done on a book caught my attention. Please do have a look see yourself, as it is just a *click* away by going HERE.
I believe I will call it a day here in Blogging land by enjoying some quiet time with my husband, Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard.
