I had a great visit with an old bud last week. I had to go to a meeting at the airport and ran into this adorable dude:
I sorta, accidentally mentioned to everyone while we were passing him that he is kinda the cutest plane ever. They were all, “Duh!”
I mentioned in my last post that I surprised Mike with a trip to St. Jacobs for his birthday earlier this week. I knew, as usual, that I was totally going to miss my kitties. It appears three out of four of them wanted to join me:
I asked Boo why she didn’t want to go (as she never climbed in my suitcase) and this was her response:
Anyway, Mike and I both took Friday off and headed “out West” around 9:30 Friday morning. We actually planned on leaving at 9:00 but my little Pinky decided to be sick in my linen closet – all over everything – at about 8:58. I had to text Mike and tell him to “stand at ease” while I cleaned up the mess. Fortunately, it didn’t take too long and we were on our way to our destination (plus a stop at Tim Hortons two minutes into the trip). The drive was only about an hour and a half, which was quite tolerable an a very sunny and fairly warm day.
We toured around the town of St. Jacobs on Friday, stopping at the Stone Crock restaurant for dinner. We were kinda excited to be in this room:
My youngest sphynx kitty Abby often has her name shortened to EB, thus the perfect room name at the restaurant.
After dinner, we headed to our hotel which was right near the market. It was a really nice hotel, so I don’t want to put it down at all. However, there was one minor issue. What’s wrong with this picture:
If you were any shorter than me, you would literally have to be standing in the shower to turn it on. Yeah, that’s fun during the first minute while the water is warming up. Ugh! Not sure who was the designer of such a disfunctional shower. On a bright note, they did put the floor numbers at eye height for my mother, if she were to ever stay there:
We spent a few hours on Saturday at the market. It’s going to be much better once the new vendor barn is open. The old one burned down last year. Overall, a great trip!
Back home, Pinky greeted me with this lovely pose. If she could talk, she would clearly say “rub it!”
Today’s symptoms: After an awesome but busier than normal weekend, I was pretty spent today. Very drained, especially after not sleeping much last night. Still dealing with insomnia. When I don’t sleep well, my MS symptoms always seem to be worse, such as more aches and pains and headaches. Totally worth it though!
