Now the broken fan has been replaced in the Freezer yesterday by Rob, I thought today would be a great day to sort and transfer everything back in there. It never happened.
The phone rang before 8 am. My brother wondered if I could pick our Mother up to take to the Hairdressers for her hair colour, and he would pick her up. I got myself dressed, took care of everyone, then was out the door just after 9 am, as her appointment was at 10.
I made a stop on my way at the Sears outlet to pick up a Spring catalogue, as I want to get some new nighties ordered for Mom, then I headed over to Gateway to collect her. I had her dropped off and settled in at the Hairdresser right on time.
I thought I would take a little stroll downtown to see what my friend, Gayle, was up to as she had asked me over a week ago if I would take some photos of the store she manages, since they had just recently set up a Facebook Page for it.
Yes Gayle had been there, and yes, I took some photos for their Facebook Page ...
The Wiarton Sally Ann does an Auction that is Theme based, I believe every month or so. This Month's Theme is everything that has to do with "Music". There is a book you can place your bid on each individual item(s). The highest bidder on each individual item(s) is then contacted at the end of the Auction. It really is fun, with myself having participated a few times.
Lots of pretty neat items are available for this Music themed auction:
You can keep up with future Auctions and special at the Wiarton Salvation Army Thrift Store by going into your Facebook Account and giving their Page a really big LIKE, just a *click* away HERE.
Now do not forget it is a very new Facebook page, and new to everyone, even to its administrator, so be patient as it will be looking "top notch" before you know it, so just give it a bit of time. In the meantime drop on in at the Wiarton Salvation Army Thrift Store on Bedford Street (Main Street) and get your bids placed in the book for some of the neat musical things they have now displayed in their window.
I was tickled pink though as I did splurge a bit on myself by buying "me" a couple of Vintage items today.
By the time I had returned home it was about the lunch hour. My plans never were accomplished today, but this is okay as I really wasn't feeling up to doing anything much anyhow as yesterday first thing in the morning my feet had went out from under me on the ice and I landed straight down on my backside. My back has been killing me all day, never mind that I am feeling a little "under the once a month" weather to top it all of ! Tomorrow is another new day ....
What I did get done was to arrange some advertising and PR for my "Crabby Cabbie" and set up some other things for him. Really this was a bit time consuming so it wasn't like I never accomplished anything, I just never got the freezer put back together this day, nor any much needed housework done either.
I am really pleased that the "Crabby Cabbie" Facebook page is growing with 86 people giving it a great big LIKE by following him, as well as our "Checkerboard Aussie" Facebook page having already climbed up to 78 followers.
We would appreciate any and all support from Saugeen Shores, Southampton, Port Elgin and area, for the "Crabby Cabbie". Also support shown for the love of the Australian Shepherd Dog towards our "Checkerboard Aussies". Thank you to all, and anytime I can show support on your Facebook page or otherwise, please drop me a line to let me know.
It never fails how badly I might feel in a day, there is always one or another of my "Checkerboard Aussies" to put a smile on my face.
This is an earlier post then usual. I am going to take out all the "gang", then hopefully soak my back in a hot tub (once the Hydro Rates go down at 7 pm). Relax a bit before taking the "gang" out and about for one more last time, then call it an early night for myself, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".
