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!

Way to go Wednesday!!!

Wednesday, November 09, 2011

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.

Okay dr apt a 2. want to get some stuff done and then dad coming for supper.
Off I go Planning to make it a repeat day of yesterday or even better. dog is moaning cos she must have read walk on here LOL

Terrific Tuesday

Tuesday, November 08, 2011

Wow what weather!! like September out there it is awesome. Dog and I walked this am, me chanting core, back down, crown every once in awhile. Core hold it in, back - hold shoulders back, down then let them go down and keep crown up. We do that in yoga and another for posture is if you are standing up straight you shouldnt be able to see your shoulders in your peripheral vision. I am practising those as oftten as I remember.
So am in the process of deleting blogs again. I find it so tedious and hard but yet they are almost all repetitive blah. I know there are a few I want to keep but not many.
Been very reflective the past few days after I went off my plan yet again after 2 days. I know I am doing walking, OR eating okay ect but yes the semi perfectionist keeps rearing it's head. Been down on me, mad at me, okay with me the entire realm of emotions. And for once I was not here blabbing about it. I really feel lately that if I can't even do what I said I was for at least 3 days in row then what is the use of saying it.
Anyway will be off here now cos gotta scoot back care yoga is offered now and wed eve so will go today adn see and then if there are times I can't go in day will still go wed eve or both if want to.
HUGS buddies be back later

    I can tell you--the shorter days have really had an affect on me!

Why are you deleting blogs? Just to clean up--start new?

    Sounds like your core is getting a good workout as you walk Cinders, does your back good too.
Like you I've been feeling emotional of late,I'm putting down to the change of season and the ghastly dark days emoticon
Enjoy your day emoticon
