It was a day of ‘lasts’.. Friday, February 13, 2015..my final day of actual work..
The last ‘coffee break’..the last ‘lunch break’..
and the ‘final send-off’….no real speeches..no tears..just the way I wanted it to be..
flowers, balloons, cake, cards a book filled with warm wishes, that .. and a very ‘generous monetary gift’..
I was feeling very blessed to be a part of such a ‘great work family’..so nice to be appreciated..
..a final ‘party’ that evening at a local Greek/Italian Restaurant..
a fun, few hours filled with good food, wine and some great work-peeps!!!!
..With all the festivities over..the weekend dawned early and we were off for a day of ‘firsts’..
Trailer out of the storage compound..hooked up and ready to go to it’s first ‘home’ as we embark on our new adventure..
..Transition time has begun..the truck was loaded..and within an hour we had the trailer backed into it’s first campsite of 2015..
Brae Island Regional Park in Fort Langley will be where we will decompress and begin the arduous process of transitioning from our rental condo to life in a ‘house on wheels’..
..It was a busy process as we unloaded and put the contents of the bins away..
..the fog was ever present for most of the weekend..
We both managed to stay focused enough to get the ‘first load’ of items dealt with..
There was a couple of ‘small repairs’ that needed to be fixed..but before long we were settled in for the night..
Since it was Valentine’s Day and our grocery supplies were very minimal to say the least.. we headed into Fort Langley and enjoyed a ‘celebratory dinner’ at a local pub..
…as the weekend draws to a close..we have a busy week filled with doctor’s appointments..eye exams..
….there is more packing to do and lots of cleaning this week..no ‘rest’ for this ‘retired gal’…
..phone calls to make to cancel all the ‘utilities’..and a few change of addresses need to be sent..
..the ‘to do’ list keeps growing..…better get busy again..
stay tuned for more once we are ‘settled’..
