Saturday Morning and so far all is well?

Well can you believe it? 6 years ago today I retired from Superior Lumber. Feb.28 was my last day in 2003. Wow how time does fly. It was 7 years ago today that I gave them my notice that I was going to retire in one year.
Ok enough about that I guess. Today I am home alone AGAIN. Wendy is in Medicine Hat with 3 other girls from Lethbridge taking a course for the Lethbridge Police department on dispatching. She will be home Sunday evening sometime.
It is about (-7 ) outside and the sun is out. Hope it melts some of our snow and ice. My front step is one patch of ice. I just went out in my garage and started the heaters. I have a few things that I want to do there today.
Yesterday I didn't do much. Never went out of the house. Sat here on this stupid computer and looked at garden tractors, keyboards and drum machines. Practice my harmonicas a bit and checked my e-mails and that was my day except for cooking a few things to eat.
Today there is lots of things that I could be doing but not sure how much will get done. So far I have checked my e-mail, checked face book, watched a short video of Josiah that Mandy posted and called my brother in Florida. Oh I did call my wife at 7:30 this morning to tell her I love her. I haven't checked the TV yet today but I'm guessing that there is a race on for sure. I do enjoy the car races. Well if I don't get off this old computer I won't get the few little things I want to do done and I won't get to watch the TV. I think I'll eat out today but not sure Lunch or Supper. I hate eating out by myself. Oh well the grand kids have a birthday party at the church maybe I'll stop in there about 3:30 this afternoon. I hear they are having cup cakes and Erie said I could come and have one. She was making them last night. She is such a cutie.
Well that is it for today. I pray that you will all have a great day and God Bless you all..

Tuesday and it's still snowing.

Yes it is still snowing and they say we are going to get about 15c. or more. Not sure we need it but looks like we are going to get it anyway.
Well today the roads are not the greatest but guess I'll head into Lethbridge and do a little something at the church. Guess I might be good for something today. Not much to do around here. It is one of them days when you just don't feel like doing much. Having a few of them days lately. Getting old sucks big time. Don't feel like typing but here I am. Oh well here I set and complaining. Better get my dead end out of this silly old chair and get going. I sure hope everyone don't feel like me today. Have a great day and who knows what tomorrow will bring?

Monday Morning Feb.9,2009

Well I am up and feel great. That's a good start anyway. Today Mandy, Jorge and little Josiah are going to head home. Pray for them as it is a long time for a little one to be on a plane. About 11 hours I think. It been a long 2 months for us and miss them very much. Wendy just got home from a 12 hour night shift and is off to bed so I can't make a lot of noise. I had planned to start making some drawer for our cabinets but I'm afraid that it might be to loud and wake her up. She needs her sleep as she works tonight also. I think I can find some things to do like get some breakfast and then go to Eddies for coffee with the guys. Then later this afternoon I'll start on the drawers. No big rush on them anyway.
Well I am back and it is real nice outside. Feels like spring. After coffee I walked to the post office and then stopped and got a new license tag for our dog. I didn't have to pay because of my age not the dogs. ha ha. Dog licenses are free to seniors. I think this afternoon I will clean out the back of my pickup and load the change table in that I built for the church.
Tomorrow morning there is a seniors breakfast at the seniors club at 8am. I have to help move all the tables afterward then I will deliver the table to the church. If I feel as good as I do now maybe I'll do a little work around the church. I'm sure there is lots of things that need doing.
I have lots of e-mails that I should write and send to people. I have been a little laxed in doing that lately. Well can't think of much else to write about so guess I end it here and try to blog again tomorrow sometime. Have a great day and may God bless you all.

Friday evening and all is well

Hi guess it is about time I wrote on here again. Well after we got back from our holidays I really wasn't feeling great and went to the doctors on Friday and they did some blood work and got my prescriptions filled and a spray bottle of nitro. On Monday he called me in and he said that I had a rise in white cells in my blood and he was a bit concerned because that usually shows up when there is and infection of some sort. Then he had me do another blood test on Tuesday and then I went back on Thursday and found that the infection seems to be going away. The white cell count was better but still showing a bit. However I have been feeling a lot better in the past few days and almost feel like my old self. Yesterday Wendy and I went to Lethbridge because she had an interview for a dispatch job that she thought she wanted at her work. Then we went to Home depot and bought 3 new light fixtures for our house. I have them all installed with Wendys help and a new dimmer switch in the dining room.Today Wendy had to go back to work so I went for coffee and then went and bought a few things at the store that we needed. When I got home I had lunch and then went into the shop and put a coat of Urathane on the change table I built for the church. Tomorrow I will put a second coat on it and then deliver it when it is dry, probably on Tuesday as I usually go in and fix some things at the church.
Wendy called today from work all excited that she got the job. I am excited for her.With all the job cut that are happening it probably won't be easy for me to pick up a part time job for the summer but you just never know what God has in store for us eh? Maybe I can fine some odd jobs here in Picture Butte.Maybe I should do a bit of advertising and let people know that I am a bit handy and have a nice garage(shop). I guess you can tell that I am feeling better because here I am talking about a summer job already.haha. This afternoon I even came downstairs and practiced on my harmonica's for about and hour and enjoyed it. The lady at our church asked me to play with the worship team on Sunday the 15th. That should be fun and I am really looking forward to it. Tomorrow I am going to start building some drawers for our kitchen cabinets. We bought the hardware the other day.That will make Wendy happy and it will be easier to reach things in our cabinets too.
Well I guess thats my story and I'm sticking to it. Have a great day and may God bless you all.
