Mine was "Sunday Morning Coming Down". A Legend indeed was the "Man in Black", as was my Dad, "Fritz", to me. I still, after 31 Years this June miss my Dad.
I have been feeling pretty overwhelmed and somewhat melancholy today. It took me the longest time to get motivated, but finally I somehow managed.
At some point this morning a Purolater truck pulled in our lane way. The box I had retrieved contained a brand new Panasonic set of phones to replace the Vtech set, not very old, that had been giving me grief by not charging properly on the main base, nor picking up phone messages properly. We have a Phone & Wire Care Plan with Bell Canada, so the phone was sent to us by Bell "NO CHARGE", but really I pay for the "extra" every month, so in reality not really being "FREE" after all.
I got going on the "Crabby Cabbie" books finally by the time late morning had come around, while Rob headed outside to get the soggy heavy snow cleaned up from our drive way.
We have been forecasted a storm coming our way, so Rob wanted to get it cleaned up before another "dump" of snow goes on top of it. I spoke to a friend who lives just outside of the Kitchener area who had told me they were getting freezing rain there already. I DO NOT like freezing rain whatsoever !
This afternoon I had my appointment to have my neck x-ray done, so downtown Wiarton I headed to the Wiarton Grey Bruce Health Center for my 2 pm appointment.
The girl got me set up in front of the machine holding a 10 lb weight in each hand to weight my arms down. I had a dizzy spell take over, along with numbness in each arm. I had to take a seat for a bit before we carried on with the remainder of the x-rays. The whole time I was thinking if anything was going to happen I couldn't have been in a better place for it to do so then at a Hospital. Ha !
Once I was done at that appointment Rob took me around to Gateway Haven to drop off Mother's OHIP card to them. I also went up to see Mom to take her Kleenex she had wanted in the full size boxes, rather then the little ones the home provides. I also took the new Sear's Spring Catalogue so Mom could go through to pick out what colours she would like the new nighties I am going to order for her to be.
Off we headed downtown again as we had a 3:30 pm appointment with our Bank.
With a bit of time to put in before the appointment I went to the Pharmacy to get my new pain medications, then popped into a couple of stores to browse for a bit. I was so happy to find the lady spoke to us ... thanks for doing so Linda ! It was really nice to meet a lady who is a member of Cindy's Recipe Exchange on Facebook, and who also reads my blog every day. I can't wait until the knitting group Linda is hostess to in her Wiarton home starts up again, as I am looking forward to "check" it out when it does.
By the time our appointment was finished up with at the Bank, we never arrived back home until going on until 5 pm. No thought put much into Dinner today, I fell back on something I always can rely on when "stuck" for what to have.
Do you think with puppies around I would not have my daily fill of "puppy love" and "puppy smells" ? of course not. Check out Cuteness on the Move, HERE.
Okay I am tired, but warm being snug as a bug inside our home away from the North Easterly Winds outside our doors, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".
