Where has the last week gone?
Everyday there was good intentions to get that ‘honey do’ list done but we have had many distractions..good ones albeit..
There are those morning walks..
the leisurely morning coffee/tea sessions..
..the morning security patrol..
oh sure..we make time to do the normal household chores..cooking cleaning, vacuuming..(trailer is rather furry now with those ‘eight paws’ residing with us)..
We have frequented the local neighbourhood pub a few times this past week..
On Saturday afternoon we met with Doug’s former co-worker…Gary and his wife, Gail..they are in the planning stages of hitting the road in the fall..counting down the days till retirement..39 more for them..
..and my sister and her ‘husband’ came for a visit on Monday..
another visit to the pub..
..they treated us to lunch and also gave us a gift card for White spot!..so very generous of them…
It was great to catch up with the two of them..it had been far too long..we managed to appease their curiosity with our ‘new retirement plans’
After they left on Monday afternoon..we had one chore that needed to be done..
The dreaded removal of the ‘most uncomfortable couch’..
..well I thought it was uncomfortable..the ‘dog’ liked it?..but sometimes it’s not about the animals..
Tuesday afternoon we returned with our ‘second’ new recliner..
..easy to get into the trailer since Lazy Boy’s come in two pieces..
..nice new ‘living room’ seating just for two..
Wednesday morning the temperature was a balmy –5..one frozen water hose..at least we are smart enough to disconnect it before we go to bed at night..with some defrosting and patience within a few hours we soon had water running again..
Wednesday afternoon..we had more visitors..
Our friends Steve and Melanie came for a late lunch/early dinner..or ‘lupper’ as Melanie called it..
..same booth..different smiling faces..
..so there you have our recap of our past few days..time is going by very quickly but we are slowing adjusting to the new ‘life’.
Stay tuned from Fort Langley..we still have more time, thank goodness..the ‘honey do list’ still needs doing!
