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.
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.
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.
