Homemade & Good !

Last night seems like a very long time ago now.  I think it was well after midnight when I broke down to take something to sleep, something I resist doing more often then naught.

After my usual morning duties I headed on downtown to the Wiarton Tourism Information Centre in the Old Train Station in the beautiful Bluewater Park.

Thanks to Holly Morrow, who works full-time at the Centre for folding all the Canada Day Pamphlets on behalf of the Wiarton District Chamber of Commerce.  Need a Canada Day schedule of events?  drop in to see Holly please.  When arriving back home the amount of Pollen on the outside swing caught my eye.  Yesterday we could barely see our car as it had been so covered with yellow pollen .... just nasty for allergy sufferers.

Canada Day in Wiarton's Bluewater Park on Tuesday July 1st, 2014.  Sponsored by the WDCC & hosted by the Wiarton District Optimist Club.

This afternoon I had another Dentist appointment in Lion's Head at 3 pm.  I had contacted my Cousin Paula, who is on vacation at their Cottage further North to see if she would like to meet up for coffee and a walk.

Paula & I met at Marydale's Restaurant in Lion's Head, however it had poured rained so instead of getting for a walk and visit we had more coffee and a visit.  At 3 pm I was off to see Dr. Pat (Pasquale) Duronio.

My throat is still raw with white specs still on it.  Dr. Pat not only prescribed me antibiotics, he also adjusted my partial for me.  I go back to follow up with him again next week.

I had taken Hamburger out to make something for our Dinner tonight, trying a different "new to me" Homemade Cheesy Hamburger Helper Recipe on the Diva's Can Cook Too website.  It was better then the very first made from scratch hamburger helper recipe I had tried.  Both Rob & I loved this one.  You can not beat Homemade & Good !


Once Dinner was over with my neighbour, Bandit and I did a 4.42 km walk.  Two nights in a row !  I feel a momentum happening here !!!

Before Dinner I had received a call from Dr. Shelig's secretary.  Dr. Shelig is the Heart Specialist who performed the Stress Tests I had back on April 30th.  He had told me if I didn't hear back from him within 10 days or so everything was fine.  His secretary said all the tests had came back in and he would like to follow-up with me on the 8th of July.  I just wonder if there is nothing to follow-up on why would he want to see me?  I found Dr. Shelig very direct and to the point.  I liked him and felt confident going to him.
 *Big Breath* and try not to worry until I have seen him on the 8th of July.

By the way it has been over 2 months since my Rob has quit smoking cigarettes.  I can not begin to express how happy I am for him ... it is such a horrible difficult habit to quit, and I know this first had as I was a total "B" lots of times when I first quit 5 years ago ... either bitchy or in tears.  Good for you Rob !  Love you even more for accomplishing this great feat !!! xoxoxo

With a big walk under my belt two nights in a row, I sure hope I sleep better this evening then last night, Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard.


  1. That's going to be a busy July 1st. Hopefully all with the doctor will sort itself out.

  2. I hate getting those follow up calls from the Dr long after the fact too. Well, it can't be TOO SERIOUS or they wouldn't have waited so long, right?
    I am having my colonoscopy tomorrow. The fun and games start in about fifteen minutes.
    Is Rob smoking the odd cigar like Mike is? At least they don't stink as bad!

  3. I hope it's nothing serious and your doctor just wants to give you some general support!

    And good for Rob!! Him quitting smoking is going to benefit both of you now and in the long run!


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.
