I’m having a little issue with my high voltage light coming on in my plane. My mechanic asked me to head up for a flight after making some adjustments to Vyctor. I was greeted at the airport with this lovely new windsock:
I went up for a fairly brief flight, until the light came back on. Bummer. I landed and fortunately, my aviation mechanic and his son (also an aviation mechanic) came out to check on things. His son was trying to figure out if there was an increased load on the electrical system. He asked me “What do you have on when you fly?” I said usually a shirt, hoodie, jeans…. Apparently he wanted to know what electronics I had on. Ohhhh… Hehehehe! I love being a smart-ass.
After an adjustment, they asked me to head up again to test it out. Unfortunately, the light came on again so we’re going to have to dig a little deeper. I offered to grab them some Timmies, but they were good to go so I made myself a joyous coffee in the Club.
Who holds their coffee like that? Anyway, no more flights until we get some stuff figured out. Vyc is sick until further notice. 😦
I came home to Pinky sitting like an angel in the bathroom with her friend:
And Boo being naughty, sitting on Ralphie’s (the snail) container. Nice.
Later that evening, tiny Mya seemed to get big Pinky in a headlock:
Poor Pinky – she usually just sits and tolerates Mya sitting on her, but I’ve never seen this before.
Speaking of pink, tomorrow is Pink Shirt Day for anti-bullying. For work, I picked up the shirts people from the St. Catharines and Hamilton offices ordered. One Hundred and Thirty-Seven!
I was so relieved when I counted a few times and the order was perfect. More than half of the shirts had to go to Hamilton so I got them all sorted and boxed back up to go. At least I didn’t have to worry about cat hair getting on them.
Over the last few days, I’ve been teaching Mike piano lessons. I got up to grade nine in my lessons, back when I was in public and high school. Also, four or five years of theory classes. I could not believe how much I forgot! I have already spent a few hours trying to relearn stuff plus put lesson plans together. Kinda fun though. Mike seems to be enjoying it so far:
Ah yes, playing the piano and making Sponge Bob Square Pants cakes (over ten years ago for Jan’s birthday). Could I be any more gifted?
Hehe! I hadn’t seen that pic in quite a few years. He actually didn’t turn out too bad!
Today’s symptoms: The insomnia has been back for the last few nights. I’ve been up since before 4:00am today. Ugh. Very drained, especially after three nights of poor sleep. I’ve had a really bad headache all day, likely from the lack of sleep. Lots of MS aches and pains – always worse when I’m super tired. I still can’t believe my body is so dumb that it doesn’t take advantage of my attempts to sleep. I lay there so tired, I don’t have the energy to roll over when I’m uncomfortable, but still can’t sleep. Geesh!
