April Fools Right?

"Yes he did "lie" either that or this was a very bad April Fools Joke."
Rob and I had a very blustery drive, with high winds swaying our vehicle, into Owen Sound this morning as we made our way to our Accountants to pickup our Income Tax for ourselves, my Mother, and The "Crabby Cabbie". The winds had been very high since early this morning. It was a very cold outing first thing with the "Checkerboard Aussies" ... brrr.
The trip into Owen Sound had a couple of bonuses as well, one being from my friend, Sharon, who had "just" recently returned from a much warmer Florida State, bringing along some goodies for myself, as well as Burt's Bees Creams for Carla and I. The second was stopping in at the Dollar Store where I "scored" some Easter Goodies at 3/$1.00, finding out it had been a mistake on the signage when I got to the check-out, but which they honoured the price anyway.
"Sharon had not only gotten us the Burt's Bees cream, she had also picked me up some Hershey's Cinnamon Chips that can only be gotten in the US. Remember those yummy Mammoth Apple Cinnamon Muffins I had made? Thanks again, Sharon ! And look at the "score" of Easter goodies Nice bonus to make the Grandson's Easter bags a wee bit fuller, since I will not be seeing them for another week or two (hopefully)."
By the time we had gotten back home it was 11:30, time to make us some lunch, after the "gang" were first taken care of. Lunch dishes done up, bed made, a couple phone calls taken care of and then it was off again to do some errands downtown Wiarton.
Gilbert Shoes, Pinkerton's Carquest, RBC, Bennett's Dollar Store, a quick chat with a lovely lady who not only "likes" The "Checkerboard Aussies" posts on Facebook, but who also follows along here too. Nice to have met you today, Joan, and thank you for the "chat".
After all of that I head over to Gateway Haven for a bit of a visit with my Mother.
"Mom had been enjoying playing Bingo when I found her with a rather large group of Bingo players. It was "fun" to sit with her for the last 15 minutes or so before the afternoon Bingo wrapped up for the day."
I measured Mom up for shoes. Her size hadn't changed, but after discussing what had changed with Marg at Gilbert's Shoes, we both concluded with so much sitting since purchasing her last shoes that she had put on a bit more weight causing her feet to be a little pudgier as well as possible swelling. We are going to try with the stretching of boot shoes she had to see if that will widen them at the toes a bit more for her. We are also waiting to see what comes in with the new Clark sandal shipment before deciding on a new purchase.
I arrived home, for the second time today, well after 3:30 pm. Again it was attend to the "gang", send off some paperwork to the Accountants, address some mail, return a few phone calls that had been left on my machine for me, and before I knew it, it was time to make Dinner. Thank goodness for leftovers !!!
I have had another severe headache again today, which I am contributing to the change in weather as well as my neck. The T2's haven't even put a dent in it, but I am still going to have to try another round of them again before my eyeballs come out of my head with pain.
"Last night it was a cuppa Sleepytime Herbal Tea. I think I will be trying out another cuppa tonight to see if that relaxes me a bit."
YIKES !!! Another friend just called me and told me there is a big Snow Squall Warning in effect for tonight. Oh man, this is not what I wanted to hear, or anyone else I am sure. Fingers, toes and eyes crossed it doesn't happen.
Would it surprise anyone if I said I have tons of plans again tomorrow? Oh my head, hopefully I will get over this headache sooner then later, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".
