The weather was supposed to be decent this morning so Mike and I could go for a flight. We arrived at the airport after 10:00, as we first had to wait for the fog to burn off. We chatted with my friends at the Club and then we climbed aboard Vyctor. I phoned the tower as the clouds were really getting close and low. We determined it would be good enough to at least do some circuits. We climbed up to 1500′ and realized that it would not be a long flight. Total time: 9 minutes. Bummer but at least we got to fly.
And we got to see our new house from the air:
Yup, it’s somewhere down there. We’ve flown over it a couple times before but I never saw it. There were other planes in the vicinity so I had to keep my eyes on the sky. As no one else was flying today, I had a better chance to look.
Since we can no longer fly anywhere for breakfast, we hit Timmies on the way home. Not quite the same but still yummy and really hit the spot. Once home, we greeted our furless felines:
I decided to add some Irish cream to our coffees. I opened it up and the entire bottle was a gelatinous blob of spoiled gooey grossness. Bummer.
I ended up spending the afternoon gardening and Mike did some organizing and installations. Very productive day for both of us! I could never understand how my mother spent hours and hours gardening, but now I see how addictive it is. I’m absolutely loving it and find it fun and relaxing.
I made another friend today. This is Svendalyn. I always loved finding toads as a kid and I see nothing has changed. I cleaned out the window well and placed him back down. Then I made him some of Peanut’s (gecko) noms:
The reaction from my little mother wasn’t surprising:
After all of the work we did today, we decided to treat ourselves with a store-bought pizza. We’re trying out different ones around the area. Good pizza and a nice paw warmer for Mya:
I’m looking forward to tomorrow. I’ve been pulling up bamboo from my back yard and we are going to plant it along the back at Jan’s tomorrow. Hopefully everyone is feeling good and the weather is decent.
Today’s symptoms: It was a better than normal day for me energy-wise, which was greatly appreciated. I’m on day three of very bad crushing pains in my hands. It’s weird in that it seems to be quite steady in intensity but actually using my hands only makes it a bit worse. So I’m glad it’s not limiting me in that sense. I’ll be content with a similar day tomorrow, although I certainly won’t complain if the pain decides to fly the coop.
