Chuck and I went to my mother’s house for Thanksgiving dinner on Saturday. As usual, her meal was perfect. It was the usual turkey dinner fare, with a new squash and apple dish which was also perfect. Man, I haven’t eaten that much in a long time. She topped off our meal with a pumpkin-mousse pie. Holy cow! Moooo! It was so good! Thanks again, Lil’ Jan!
As Chuck and I were getting ready to leave, I discovered that I was totally coordinated with the large hazard pylon thing out in front of her house:
Talk about a stripe-fest!
On Sunday, Jan came up to St. Catharines and we hit a couple malls and Costco. It’s funny how you go into Costco for just two or three things and you come out with a buggy full.
I’m glad the weather was somewhat decent on Monday. It was the last day the Niagara District Airport was going to be open for at least a week. They are repaving all three runways (as far as I know). Chuck and I went for a local flight just after noon. He snapped a few photos during the flight. You can see that runway 01 has been partially repaved:
I thought they were going to rename runway 06/24 due to the magnetic variation, as they did in Tillsonburg and Toronto. It looks like I was el’wrong-o!
Here we are just after lifting off:
We hit a touch of rain while flying around Niagara. Chuck phoned my mother when we arrived in her area and she came out to wave. What a dedicated and devoted little mother I have, willing to stand out in the rain to wave at her cute and loving daughter.
It was sad when we were coming back in to land, since I knew it would be my last flight for a least a week:
Nothing too exciting is planned for this week. I’ll be sure to tell y’all about it if anything happens.
Today’s symptoms: Much more tired and weak than usual. Quite a nasty headache too. I’ll try to get a good sleep tonight so I can feel sassy and joyous tomorrow.
