Thursday a good day

Thursday, November 17, 2011

Well didn't blog for a bit, was busy and not on puter a lot or for long enough times at once.
Yesterday was the 37th anniversary of our first date. Murray always remembers I never do.. so he told dd we are busy can't do whatever it was cos we are going out on a date. lol had a good time, ate a great asian chicken salad and talked about house plans. Hubby still drawing up stuff daily. He loves doing that. I love to dream decorate.
Today we took the best of mums clothes to a 2nd hand consigment shop where she said she didnt want them. they were too old, the clientelle she has, want new styles -okay it is a used clothing store?? whatever fine by me, won't be by dad but he can try to sell the 2 coats he is concerned about.
Then we went to visit Thomas and Eva, she was asleep, but he was busy as can be. Is starting to talk more. says hi there, T - THomas and makes his hands in shape of T ( from patty cake patty cake..) he also says TADA and claps for himself HA what a ham.
So now this eve I am going to go back to the sewing machine and get the 2nd dog coat done for dd dog. She bought it all and I am sewing them. Then also started a scarf for mil and sil for xmas. only took 2 days to make one so not bad. Still want to make Eva a stocking for Xmas but can't find a nice one. They have the same ones as last year and I got the only cute one for Thomas.
NOt much more new, been doing pretty good eating, and yoga. My knees were sore yesterday and some today super bad headache all day yesterday but after i ate last eve went away.
HOpe all are well, I am fine just busy sewing, knitting or drivign around looking at houses. argh!!! we still go back to the one in the woods as we call it. we thought it was $$ for the size and what we are getting but now that we look at others it isn't. Probably we will go with that but not closing the door on something that is closer but has to be awesome and a view! LOL
Okay dd is stopping over to try the one coat on the dog. when we got the material it was cold so made the winter one first. now it is raining and could use th erain coat one.- that won't take long.
HUGS all !!!

    Happy 1st date anniversary. How romantic of hubby to remember. My husband & I tend to celebrate our anniversary as the day we met & not the day we got married (7 years later). I'm thinking of making a coat for Dog. She's got long fur for warmth, but I think the snow is going to matt up in it fast. She'll be like a walking snowball! lol

Senior Love

Senior Love

I was in my back yard trying to launch a kite.
I threw the kite up in the air, the wind would catch it for a few
Seconds, then it would come crashing back down to earth.
I tried this a few more times with no success.

All the while, my wife Linda is watching from the kitchen window,
Muttering to herself how men need to be told how to do everything.

She opens the window and yelled to me,
'You need a piece of tail.'

I turned with a confused look on my face and yelled back,
'Make up your mind. Last night, you told me to go fly a kite.'

LOL when I read this to dh, he said and you wonder why men get confused! LOL

What a day!

Friday, November 11, 2011

Well we have torential rain and wind on us this am, Despite that I am very proud to say a lot of people turned out at the remembrance day ceremonies. They did cut the service a bit short but was long enough for us to get totally soaked, I wore a heavy top, a windbreaker, and my motorcycle rain jacket and was still completely soaked. But as I said else where, NO bombs, no trenches, no mud just a coolish not even cold rain. I can handle that, Both my kids are sick with colds so they didn't come. Dad thank heavens opted to stay home.
The past 2 or 3 days I have been so reflective, a lot has to do with remembrance day and all that it entails. I am so thankful for my dad, sad that the war made him bitter but still can see his smile often. I feel as if I miss mum more cos I am loving dad more. I wish she was here today.
Baby Eva and all her family have colds. Thomas is getting better so thats good as he would be the one passing on his germs. DD also is sick, she called in sick today so has a longer than normal weekend off till tues. Hubby and I go get our flu shots tomorrow am, I don't want one but let the dr and hubby convince me.
So this reflective bit is making me melancholy and so contemplative. I am off here in a bit to go make some homemade soup, Have supper made as was going to take it to the legion but we didnt go.
Off to make this special day count! cya later hugs sparkers

    It is a day to reflect on the sacrifices made to give us the freedoms we enjoy Cinders, and yet history repeats itself and we still send young men off to fight on distant lands.

Try not to get too low hun emoticon

My War Hero

Friday, November 11, 2011

This is my dad when he first joined the navy, to go to WWII. He lied about his age so he could go. I can't imagine doing that ever. I can't imagine wanting to join the military ever so wow.

He was one of the lucky ones that made it back. He was a changed man, mum said many terrible dreams, drinking ect. He is still very quiet and reserved- he doesn't share much. When asked by my dd when she was in high school if she could interview him for a project about the war, he told her NO. but I will write somethign for you. He would do anything for her, so to tell her no shows how deeply it still affects him. I do know one of his close buddies was in a trench beside him and was blown up right in front of him. How do you go on living the same life? you probably don't.
SO even though I moan and groan about my dad, I am still thankful that he is here with us, and today am thankful that he isn't being stubborn about going to the cenotaph as it is a terrible wind and rain storm, flooding ect.

Here is my hero now:

So remember these brave men and women and honour a vet today.

    War has to change a person. How they deal with that in turns affects those closet to them.

    A debt of gratitude is owed to all the brave, men and women, who serve their Nations, especially in time of war. The impact these conflicts take upon their lives is one that few of us, outside of the military, can understand.

Thank you, to your dad, and a big thanks to you for sharing his story!

Well slept poorly, awake for over an hr and hubby was too. Slept till phone woke us. It was the guy with the land as had left him an email saying we want lot #48 what do you need to save it till our house sells?
So we got up, Mur called him back and he wants 1,000 dollars down. We can back out till end of year and get it back after that we should have a more concrete idea and won't get the $ back if we change our minds. We were fine with that so STEP 1!!!! OMG the woods! eeek yes omg all kinds of emotions.

It is another warm fall day and awesome out. I walked over to the library as I forgot to return a book last eve. Now am going to take dog for a walk, while hubby watches Regis and Kelly. Home and either help him with the last board on the deck, or pot up some of my house plants that need some care.
