Wow! Where has the time gone? I can't believe it has been two months since I have posted anything on my blog. I must say I have been very busy. I work Monday, Wednesday and Friday at the preschool and for the last 2 months have been babysitting all day Tuesday and Thursday for Tricia. Wynn and I have been driving the grandchildren to piano lessons (Tyler) and ballet lessons (Tava). As well I prepare family meals on Tuesday and Thursday. Is it no wonder that I have not been on my blog.
Anyway, retirement is coming up very soon for me, the end of June. Wynn called it quits the end of April. He has been doing a lot of work around the yard. He put in 4 fruit trees, only to have one snapped off by a stray dog yesterday. We have 1 apple, 1 plum and 1 (used to be 2) pear tree. He has also planted a full garden; plus we have our raspberry and blueberry bushes and a grape vine. I'm still trying to figure out where to put a strawberry patch. Wynn power washed the fence around our yard and I have been busy staining it. He is also painting our front door a deep burgundy colour. When the door is finished, he is going to put tile at the entrance. We also have plans to put a cement pathway to our sheds in the back yard.
We are looking forward to this summer; it should be very interesting. To begin with, we bought a double seated kayak and plan to see more of the beauty of Vancouver Island this way. As well, Wynn plans to go fishing in it. We also bought a side car for the motorcycle to haul the kayak around, all 14 feet of it.
Our plans include coming to Ontario for the month of August on the motorcyle with kayak in tow. The last time we rode across the country on our motorcycle, we tented and we plan to do the same this time. The only difference will be that we will be able to bring a little more, like a lawn chair. How I missed not having a chair to sit on at the campsites.
