Thanks to all of my FaceBook peeps who wished me kind birthday wishes! That really made my day!
My mother gave me a slipper. The left foot only. She said I get the other one for Christmas! Tee hee. What a dork. We got together for a visit today. I noticed in the Canadian Tire Flyer that the Roomba vacuum this is half price for $250. I’ve wanted one since they first came out, but could never get through the guilt of spending money on something I really don’t need. While at Walmart, we went over to their vacuum section and noticed a tag for the Shark version of the Roomba. It was half price as well, for $200. I managed to break through the guilt and purchase one (ordered online as they were out of stock). I still feel guilty when I see the receipt, but I think I’m going to be quite happy with the purchase. Hopefully it doesn’t scare the kitties! I feel kinda bad that Dysie, my Dyson vacuum, won’t be used as much. I actually find vacuuming a little therapeutic, and Dysie has been great with this over the last seven years.
My little mother reminded me to make sure I have a snow scraper in my car. Good reminder and I’m passing it on! I’ll have to go check if I have one in Lola Corolla.
I went for a nice solo flight last weekend. I headed over the FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre (white roof on the right). I’ll be heading there for a concert soon, which I’ll report on in an upcoming blog.
The one on the left is the Meridian Centre. I’m lucky they are walk-able from my place.
This is heading back into St. Catharines, with the Burgoyne Bridge at the bottom:
It was a really nice flight. I couldn’t do any aerobatics because of a fairly low ceiling, which progressively dropped.
I was off today and after my awesome visit with Lil Jan, I did a bunch of cleaning with the critters. Peanut had his tank cleaned, Zim as well, plus his sand changed. The crickets were cleaned and their egg medium was put in the other tank. I asked them all to pose for a pic in their new, clean home (not that I ever let it get that dirty!) and show how good it feels. Little Peanut stepped up to the challenge:
He actually had a little rest on his sister, Pinky, while having his tank cleaned:
None of them having any issues with their two gecko brothers, but Pinky is the most docile with them.
Abby just chilled on the heater:
Today’s Symptoms: It’s been a great week so far. I’ve felt average consistently over the last few days. I’m just experiencing more and more nerve pain in my hands. Feels like I’m being stabbed to the bone with an ice pick. Sure makes me know I’m alive! Yikes!
