Our driver, Carolyn, had to bring the other vehicle to Wiarton to our mechanics as well, since both her and Rob's vehicle's were having issues with the brakes. When you are in business you do not mess around with or overlook mechanical issues with your vehicles, or we don't that is for sure.
They left one vehicle with the mechanic, then came back to the house. I whipped us up all a breakfast of Scrambled Eggs, Bacon, Home Fries and Toast with Jam. Those poor two were not only full when I was done with them, but probably "extra" tired after they ate.
I left them each to relax on a easy chair to do up the dishes, make the bed, look after all the Aussie "gang" and head on downtown as I was off to see my Mom later this morning.
First off I stopped at the Sears pick-up outlet downtown Wiarton. I had first called Sears to inquire where my order was since I hadn't heard it was in yet, having ordered it well over a week and a half ago. Apparently nobody calls you to tell you when it gets in, that you are suppose to find out yourself within 3 to 5 business days, or so this is what I was told when speaking to the Sears Customer Service gal on the other end of the phone this morning. What kind of Customer Service is that when you shop from their Sears Catalogue? Not the best in my books I am thinking.
Regardless I went to collect the package of nighties I had ordered for my Mom, then headed on over to Gateway Haven to deliver. I had also made an Easter Tin of Pucker-Up Squares for her too. Between the packages, my purse and camera I had no room to carry up an armful of Kleenexes I had gotten for her.
After all that when I got there, the first thing Mom asked me, "did you get me Kleenex??" Oh man the things you want people not to remember are the first things they remember !!! I took Mom along with me to retrieve them. Since she had herself a bit of a fall saying her one leg was sore, the Nursing Home Staff had ordered her a wheelchair. Off we went .....
We had ourselves almost a good hour's visit before I wheeled her down to the diningroom as it had been lunch time by that time. I will be going back up next week, as I have to try to find her a pair of new sandals since her old ones had been giving her blisters as they were too worn. That will be a challenge at this time of year. But sandals she wants, so sandals I will look for downtown at Gilbert's Shoe store where hopefully they will have stock from last Year and in a small size 5 !
Oh yes, before I left Mom's floor I couldn't believe it ...
After I had been back home for a bit, Rob dropped back home with the 2nd "Crabby Cabbie" vehicle after it had been fixed and before he had head out to work for the rest of the day. Our wonderful employee, Carolyn, had done some decorating yesterday in keeping with some of the Easter Traditions.
Ha! this is the "Crabby Cabbie" vehicle Carolyn drives and Rob had to drive it to return it to her, as she had his. My poor "Crabby Cabbie" Bunny Rob.
Little "Checkerboard Aussies" Lunette is not due to be going to her new Forever Home for 2 more weeks yet.
Psst.... Semah is reportedly very settled in with his family in his new Forever Home. Just *click* HERE to see for yourself.
Unfortunately this weekend did not work out for Paul and the boys to come for Easter Dinner, so it will be Rob, I and our "Aussies". We are both looking forward to a Ham, Scalloped Potatoes with side veggies of turnip and corn. As a "special" treat I might also make up a batch of Cottage Cheese Biscuits. Shh, I might make Rob his favourite Lemon Meringue Pie.
I feel like my story is getting "old" but I am tired with hopes my "gang" will settle in for an early night around here, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".
