This morning I had a couple of errands to do downtown. It really screws up a day when you have to leave first thing in the morning, does it not?
I had barely arrived back home when I got a phone call from the Owen Sound Hospital. I had been booked on the 18th of December for an MRI on my knee I had surgery on 2 x coming up 3 years ago now. It has been giving me grief lately with almost going out on me when going down stairs. X-rays never show anything hence the MRI.
I had called scheduling and asked to be put on the "cancellation" list for the MRI once I had received an appointment a couple of weeks ago. Today was the day I got the appointment since there had been a cancellation. They called me at 10:30 and the appointment was 12:15 pm. Lots of notice.
I left here at 11:15 to give myself LOTS of extra time "just encase", you know traffic incidents, weather, deer running across my path ... those everyday kind of life things.
I was at Central Registration by 12:05, then down to the MRI waiting room where I sat until 12:45 pm. The attendant asked why I hadn't checked into Central Registration, and I relayed I had indeed and had been sitting there for over 1/2 hour. Not sure what happened but they had taken someone else ahead of me, hence longer the wait. I finally got out of there sometime just after 1 pm.
I was grateful I was able to get an earlier appointment cause goodness knows what the weather will be like by the 18th of December !!! never mind tomorrow. I love there is Cancellation Lists !
When I got back into Wiarton I stopped in at the Wiarton Home Building Centre to pickup Christmas lights for the tree we are putting up in the Berford Street Parkette for the Santa Claus Parade, then one more stop at the Chamber Office to put in my receipt.
Home at 4 pm to get our dinner of Sausages, Brown Rice and Acorn Squash cooked.
Right after dinner Rob had to go out, and I sat myself to do my daily journal here early, as The "Voice" is on again tonight and I would hate to miss something I enjoy watching.
Tomorrow is WHITE WEDNESDAY in Wiarton. I am hoping it is a great success for our Town's Small Businesses ...
All the WHITE WEDNESDAY "specials" are not listed above, however all can be found by *clicking* HERE. Happy shopping if you are going out to the Wiarton WHITE WEDNESDAY sales !

I am signing off now to get the Dinner dishes done up, and maybe a couple of more rows knitted on that long time project I have had on the "go", Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard.
