I cannot believe how well I have been feeling this week. My fatigue level has been far more tolerable than normal. I have not experienced full body weakness like I have been on and off for quite a few months. My headache has been less too. I have been able to take advantage of almost every second while feeling this well.
On Monday, I met up with my friend, her husband and six year old son. He loves cars and airplanes, so they came by so he could see the Flying Club planes, and mine.
Perfect photo op, as he sits in the pilot seat:
After seeing Vyctor, they went up on the observation deck as I did some aerobatics above. Here is the link to the post on Facebook .
It was a wonderful morning, to say the least! The next day, the weather remained iffy throughout the morning. I had a charity fly-over at a golf course in Port Colborne. It is a special charity event for me because it is for the MS Society. The annual Fred Legg Golf Tournament was taking place. I was able to do a little show for them, while listening to other aircraft in the area divert from the lightning storm north of me in St. Catharines.
Once done my show, I couldn’t get back to the Niagara District Airport, so I decided to divert to Welland.
The skydivers came down from their jump just as I was landing. My aircraft mechanic was kind enough to let me put Vyctor in their hangar, while waiting out the storm:
I met up with my friends and was able to keep good company with them, while we all waited out the weather.
Péter and I ran out and gathered the flags from the drop zone:
The ironic thing is that I had to be back here – at the Dorothy Rungeling Airport (Welland Airport) for 5:30 that evening for an Recreational Aircraft Association meeting. Sooooo….I just waited there from around 1:15 to later that evening.
My friend Péter, his daughter Enikö and I hung out around the hangar. Mike had to drive in due to the weather, and met up with us around 5:00.
My mechanic has an adorable five year old daughter and he often brings her to these social summer meetings. The last time I saw her was at our last summer meeting (September) and she asked if I could bring my Barbie doll to the next meeting. No problem! For some reason, I decided to keep my Ken doll. I asked my mom to crochet one of my dolls a nice dress. She did. What she didn’t know was that it was for Ken, now Kendra. She brought her Ken, who happened to be naked. Of course, I had my awesome copilot Donkay with me for my flight earlier. His daughter created this lovely tower of awesomeness:
Good times! (tee hee!)
Fortunately, the weather was clear enough for me to fly back to St. Catharines. Péter suggested that his daughter Enikö, could fly back with me. He would drive to the Niagara District Airport to take her back home. I thought it was a great idea, as did Enikö.
She hopped aboard and we flew back toward Lake Ontario, hitting a couple light showers on the way. Free plane wash!
Hehe! I’m afraid it didn’t rain hard enough for that. Vyc was looking pretty dapper anyway, as they take excellent care of Vyctor and I.
We flew over one of her places to go in the area – the Niagara Outlet Mall, close to the airport:
She is really looking forward to going up with me for aerobatics, so was very excited when I did a fairly steep turn:
I was very grateful for my friend, the manager of the Flying Club, to come back to the airport and open the hangar for Vyctor. I slept better knowing my Aerobat was safe for the night.
It was a very long but very good day!
Wednesday was to be another charity golf tournament I fly over every year. Unfortunately, the weather was not in our favour. The clouds were too low to fly, plus there was a risk of a thunderstorm in the area around the time of my fly-over. Next year will be better.
I had the day off today and unsurprisingly, I was quite weary after my previous busy days. I managed to push myself though and had a very nice visit with my mother. We went to the PEN Centre and had some Timmies before slowly wandering around.
While at the mall, I recreated a picture of his daughter, that Péter sent me last night while they were in Sephora. Tee hee:
I got some Christmas shopping done, so that was a nice little bonus! Since being back home from our adventure at the mall, I have just been resting.
Today’s symptoms: I felt quite weary and had a lot of bad nerve pain all over, but my spirits were high! That made it a rather nice day.
