Got up at 4am, too
wide awake to stay in bed, even Millie got up at 6:10.
Our new diet helps.
Garbage day, even
though we had taken a van load to the dump yesterday
($2). The van is loaded again for the next trip. Ian
called to say he was on his way north for Debbie's
As usual we worked on
the shed, almost finished, cleaned up a little, moved
lots of wood around. Made another shelf. I have to get a
new battery for the lawn mower, its useless without it
and I can't even sell it without one. I meant to cut the
grass before next door beats me to it, but it looks like
I can tomorrow. Millie has given me tomorrow off to do
laundry, and go to Costco for my favourite pickled
On our second big pot
of cabbage soup, so different from the first which
didn't have any tomatoes in it. (Picked 5 or 6 of our
tomatoes, and meant to put them in the pot, but they
were nice just the way they were) Weight down 4 lbs,
slow but I would take a pound a day for 6 months.
A couple of website
cheques came in, Ernie brought his over and wants me to
add a couple of more services to
. He says the business is doing well, his wife
quit her job to do the office part full time, I'll have
to put my prices up next year.
My depression over
the last few months seems to have lifted, I think the
direction you are traveling is far more important than
where you are in this life. Millie reminds me I have
nothing to be depressed over, but I don't think its
based on whether you are eligible or not, its just a
overnight, the long downhill slide into Winter.
I want to go to night
school this fall, probably on financial planning,
although I will have to learn to not argue over it.
Great day on the
markets if you bet on the banks, I didn't, I bet on them
falling due to profit taking, instead they soared. I of
course bet on 700 shares of Agrium, which fell, but they
will come back, if not tomorrow, Monday.
Must remember to
renew our passports which expire in Nov / Dec
Was reading about a
long term kidnapping in California, still amazed you can
go to the address in Google, see the property from
above, then see the property from the street in
Streetview. Its like looking at the crime scene before
anyone knew it was a crime scene.
I had better do
Ernie's website or it will take days otherwise.
Or maybe back to bed
for an hour or 2
