I am trying not to let this cold I have slow me down. Yesterday I did some weeding. I weeded half the garden 'til the bees told me that I better not be pulling out more of their favorite flowers... They didn't quite put it in those words but I got the message.
My next task was to mow the lawn. I found the mower, then I was looking for the extention cord... Could not find one. In fact the mower had no cord. Duh! I have never used a power mower before. I did not even know how to start it. I asked the kids and they did not know how to start it either. I was not going to let a silly mower that I knew had to work somehow, stop me. A red button on the side was my first clue. Too bad I had not found it before I pulled the rip cord 100 times... Push the red button 3 times then pull the cord. Got it! One more task down.
Next little thing was to drive M to his soccer finals. I was not sure that there would be parking so I dropped him off with no promise to watch the game, but I found parking and witnessed the final match. Good job M! It's not easy being goal keeper. His mother , my sister soon joined me in watching the match. She had been off on a wine tasting tour of Niagara all day. I am happy she had the chance to do that.
Today on my agenda... Take M bowling then go visit my grandparents grave in Newmarket... Sounds like fun eh?
Update: I not only found Newmarket (after almost taking a few wrong turns) I found my grandparents headstone right where my father said it would be. I had a nice conversation with them, then I took the long way back and enjoyed the scenic route along Bayview.
