MY DAYS IN RETIREMENT

Little Buggers and Broken Glass

Well, Nat had a good round of golf yesterday. Won some money so he says, but not sure how much yet. His foursome almost won the tournament, except for one blunder. Too bad, I was so looking forward to displaying another golf trophy!!! Oh well, there’s always the tournament next month!!

Been bothered with some buggy bugs at our back windows during these past few days. Don’t know where they’re coming from yet and they’re driving me nuts!!!! Can’t open the windows to let that gorgeous breeze in – those bloody little pests can get through the screens. They’re everywhere – they’re everywhere!!! Waiting for a good rain to hopefully drown the little buggers.

Got the usual chores done this morning. Nat was up early to go across the River to get gas and so I got up a little earlier than usual. You can get a lot done getting up early, eh!!

Almost forgot to mention the nice time Bonnie and I had at the Thorold Craft Show yesterday. She managed to buy a really cute hat – funky and yet stylish!! We then ventured on to Swiss Chalet and did the lunch thing, and then over to HomeSense where I managed to drop a buck or two!!! Found a good deal on drinking glasses, so I grabbed 10 of them at $2.00 each. Alas, however, while trying to get those bloody price tags off, and getting them washed, someone I love dearly managed to break one!! And then there were 9!! Bonnie then joined us for a delicious fish and chip supper. All in all a nice day!!

Born and raised in a small town in Ontario, Canada, with 5 sisters and a brother. Now retired, my husband and I travel, play golf and am slowly renovating our new (old) home. After my kidney transplant in 1999, we've learned to enjoy life to the fullest. Nat and I have driven across Canada, taken an Alaskan cruise and drove home via the Northern United States. We've also been to Mexico, the Caribbean, the East Coast of Canada and Cape Breton. We've done the "Snowbird" thing, having lived in Destin, Florida for a couple of months of the year. In 2007 we changed our travel plans in order to move into and renovate our new "old" home, but hope to someday get back on the road again. We also love returning to Scotland (Nat's origin of birth) to visit his family and tour the Highlands and surrounding Isles.
