That is how many km. we have travelled since my last post. For those of you not familiar with the metric system that is about 5600 miles. These miles/km were driven in our vehicle on Canadian and American hi-ways. We did 7455 km and came home for 3 days and then went to meet friends and do a tour of the Gaspe which resulted in almost another 2000 km.
On those 3 days in between I had 2 teenage grand daughters with me and they both wanted new purses, so like any other grandmother would do...I made them. One turned out not be suitable so I made another.
The third (and the best in my opinion) purse photo is on my camera and I am missing a cord to load it onto my ipad so I will post later. When we arrived home from our second trip we were blessed to have our company come home and spend a few days with us here at Winterpast. It has been 7 years since they have visited us here, so even though it was just a short visit we were thrilled to have them. Yesterday I was up at 3:45 to get things on the ball and get my grand daughter to the airport for 5:15 am. Home at 7 and coffee and light breakfast for my departing company and then I had to tackle the laundry...7 sets of bedding plus all the towels and personal laundry took a full day...that and an appt. to have a windshield repaired, a visit to the Dr.'s office and then to the hospital for x-rays, back home to finish laundry, pack the car and drive the hour back to the cottage. By 10 last night I was totally pooped.
Mr. O got up this morning and made/packed his own h and coffee etc and snuck out leaving me to sleep...bless his heart!
I really need to try to get back into a routine and get in a walk. It is surprising how quickly we can slip the pounds on and get out of shape with all this traveling.
Needless to say I have not had much time to get to my August Schnibbles and there are only seven days until Parade! Can you guess what I will be doing today after putting away laundry and a quick tidy up?
Mr O. plans to retire early in the new year when the mine closes. He says he would like to travel when he retires...hmmm I wonder what he calls what we have been doing the last four or five months...we travelled from N.B. to Ont. in April, Europe in May, quick 5 day trip to Ont. in June, trip to a family reunion in Northwestern Ont. in July and most of August and then all the Gaspe Penninsula of Quebec in August...
Gee I am looking forward to some "real" travelling after retirement!
