Nineteen Years Plus

Yesterday marked 19 years from the day when Rob & I married.  It has been nineteen years plus, as we have been also been together 21 years now.  Wowsers ! time flies does it not?  The best wishes we had received on Facebook were overwhelming and very thoughtful from all who took us a moment to congratulate us on our day.

Happy Anniversary to the Best Friend I have been married to for the past 19 years, and loved for 21 years, and you know friends do have their up, downs & disagreements, do you not?

We have been going to the Mandarin Restaurant usually ever year in Barrie for our Anniversary.  We were fortunate enough to be able to go again yesterday.

We usually leave mid-morning so we can take our time and stop here and there along the way.  We stopped at the Home Furniture Centre in Collingwood, then at at Fernwood Farm & Market just before Staynor.

We always have a bit of fun wherever we stop.

The Farm had these very very scary pumpkins .... ewwww.

Once we arrived in Barrie we stopped into PetSmart, as we had Portia along with us, headed over to Costco, and ended up where we always go to Dinner at the Mandarin.

This was not all of ours, as we had picked up a few things for a couple of friends at Costco as well.  Good thing we have a van.  

Prime Rib Beef with all the trimmings? yes this was at the Mandarin, and yes Rob had some Chinese food after he finished off his Canadian plate of food.

By the time we arrived home we were both all in but for our shirt tails, so much so I can't remember watching the end of my favourite show, The Voice.  We were tired ! Rob more so as he had been called out in the middle of the night the night before.

Today? it was back to work for Rob, and I headed over to an appointment with the Nerve Specialist, Dr. Meikle, in Owen Sound.  Results? my nerves are not damaged in my hands, legs and feet.  His comment was, "fibromyalgia is a nuisance".  Yes if I could only "plug in" to some people to really show them exactly how much of a nuisance it is.  These tests just eliminated, once again, what I do not have.

I might have bad nerves at time, however they are not the ones inside my hands, legs and feet, only my brain.  *sigh*

I was really happy this afternoon, as my old walking partner, Sharon & I, reconnected and got out for a really nice walk.  I love walking with Sharon as we always have something to chat about and the walking goes fairly quickly.  She is pretty flexible so that really suits my at time hectic or "down days" just perfectly.  I am one happy camper we have reconnected !

Rob had to get up on our barn roof to repair some metal this afternoon before our metal roof blows off this winter.  Needless to say he is hurting from that excursion.  At least we now won't loose the roof from high winds, and yes we get pretty high winds out in the open where we are.

We are to get the backlash of Hurricane Patricia tomorrow and Thursday with high winds and rain. Sometimes these warnings are short lived if the storm has blown itself out by the time it reaches this far North.  We can always hope for this to happen.

Tonight is another episode of The "Voice", and I am hoping I do not miss one bit of the hour it is on, Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard.


  1. Congratulations!

    I'm hoping what's left of Patricia stays away, but I know it's not likely.

  2. Love those Sugar wart pumpkins!
    They are the best and sweetest and I only grow them.
    They are french heirloom and I am really shocked any grows them at a roadside stand.

    1. Thanks for shedding light on their name, Barb. Warts we thought !

  3. We are currently experiencing the "big storm", Patricia, blowing through but it's not nearly as bad as they predicted. It's been raining constantly, though lightly, and the wind isn't too bad at all. Congrats on 21 years - you two are so cute together!

  4. Happy Anniversary to you both. Love the pyramid pumpkins, but those others, are 'creepy looking'. Guess they fit right in for Halloween. Hope all is pretty well with your health. Bess


How nice of you to drop around to have a wee visit with me to see what I have been up to from time to time. I look forward to your comments as they add much brightness to my each and every day to know there are such wonderful people out there.
