Hard to fathom that we have been actually living here for 19 days already..
My last post ended on the Wednesday last week..
The socializing and entertaining has continued..
Our friends Brenda and Ken drove from Nelson to visit his parents just east of Mission..
Thursday morning we made the trek to the land of no cell service or internet to visit everyone at Ken’s parents home..
A lovely home settled on 7 acres..so quiet and peaceful..a perfect house nestled in the country!
Friday was a day filled with a few household chores..
there was the security ‘cat’..
breakfast!!..eggs and toast..Doug wanted bacon..fooled him!!
another walk along the trail..
a lemon pie was made..
..time for some knitting..
We even had time for a campfire..
Bob and Gerda, our favorite campers from last summer.. came for lunch on Saturday..
Monday was grocery shopping, waxing the trailer and dinner with our next door neighbours..chili in the crockpot!
Tuesday the visiting began again..
Tasha from work came by for a coffee in the morning bringing with her some baked goods and some yellow tulips!
..another pub lunch with our ‘condo neighbour’, Shannon..
we are getting to be regulars at the Fort Pub..another delicious meal!
and then an afternoon visit from another work friend..Leslie..
she came with fresh farm eggs..two dozen!! enough to share!
the visiting continued into the evening with Doug’s buddy Tyrone and his girlfriend coming by for an after dinner visit..
That brings us to today, Wednesday..
A day back into the big city..
We had an appointment at the insurance office..Breakfast at IHOP..dentist appointments..a visit to my place of work to drop off a card and a token of appreciation for the great ‘sendoff’..
I also received my retirement gift from the union..
..and a union pin ..
if you have made it to the end of this post without your eyes ‘glazing over’..kudos to you..
We look at each other and wonder where the time has gone..
Soon it will be time to hook up and head on out!!
