It’s been a rather crazy week and I didn’t get a chance to do a blog until now. On Tuesday, I had my new floor put down. Jan arrived around 7:30 and the floor guys were there at 8:00. There was a little mix-up with the scheduling, so they had to come and do the floor on a day I was a tad busy. At 10:00, I had to be in Welland to give a presentation (the same one I did a couple months ago at the Sexsmith Airport). That left Jan to watch the cats at the apartment. I felt bad they were stuck in the spare bedroom while they did the floor out in the living room and kitchen:
At least my presentation went well – probably a little more excitement than Jan was experiencing. I think there were around 45 people there. The hall at the Legion was quite large. I’m glad they got the mic hooked up for me:
And yes, more folks showed up….
Back home, the kitties were settling down, realizing that scampering around wasn’t going to get them out of the room. I was surprised to see Mya, Pinky and Boo all snuggled up in the new cat bed I bought them. Sorry Abby, no room for you!
Eventually Boo got booted out and only Mya and Pinky were left:
I had to leave again to go have my Tysabri infusion at 1:00.
They finished the floor after 7:30pm. Jan and I were starving! We ordered delivery through Swiss Chalet. Man, food is amazing when you’re famished.
The next day, I got most of my furniture and items back into the apartment from the balcony:
I’ll take some pics of the new floor for my next blog.
Anyway, I felt pretty lousy throughout the rest of the week. Friday, I had one of the worst pain days I’ve had in years. It was unreal. I had constant, bone crushing pain over my whole body, then I would get waves of even more intense pain. Sometimes they were so bad, it caused me to gag! So glad I feel much better today. Pain is still worse than normal, but much more tolerable.
Since the weather was decent in the morning, I decided to go for a flight. Snapped lots of pics. This is the main street in Niagara-On-The-Lake.
There was lots of activity at Fort George. They were doing the Battle of Queenston Heights re-enactment (200 year anniversary):
Here’s everyone at Queenston Heights (Brock Monument):
Passed a helicopter which was heading over to the Niagara Falls scenic circuit:
Lots of traffic on the Queenston-Lewiston Bridge:
The Fall colours are making their way out. This is just downstream from Niagara Falls:
The power plant on the American side:
I headed down toward Fort Erie, then flew along the Lake Erie shoreline.
Windmill just West of Port Colborne:
And I always love flying over this old lighthouse off of the shore:
Then north up through Pelham. Here is a shot of the huge mural at my old high school, E.L. Crossley:
It was a great flight. I think I’ve put in five and a half hours of “normal” flying to break in my two new cylinders. Only four and a half to go before I can do aerobatics again!
Back home, I still had a little energy so I did sixty-five minutes on my exercise bike. I haven’t done any exercises in almost a month, so I really need to get crack-a-lackin again.
Tomorrow, I plan on heading down to Fonthill to visit Jan. We have some shopping to do at the mall, then over to Zehrs for the week’s noms.
Today’s symptoms: A little more pain than normal, but it was constant without the waves of pain I experienced yesterday. Quite tired now but I guess it was a rather long week plus I did lots today.
