Another sleep in day!
Met my friend Tam❤ at the Early Bird in Thorold. It's become our usual meet up spot when I come home! The server must have asked us 3 times if we were ready to order, a little too much yackin happening! LOL:) 4th time we were ready!
We ended up outside a Timmies, sitting on a wall enjoying the sunshine! Three and half hours later we said our goodbyes. Great catch up!
Love you girl!
Helped Hailey with more homework!
Tyler received his diploma today. He went to the school and picked it up. NOT a normal way to receive ones diploma but it is a 2020 graduation! The commencement speech was in print for all Graduates to read. So different!
Took Dad some leftover Turkey and a couple Lindt chocolates. He didn't want to eat the turkey right away but he ate the chocolate right away! :)
Dinner with the fam❤

Day 18

Day 18

sunny 18 °C

3:40 am woke up to a chirp or a beep, wasn't sure what it was! Discovered it was the fire alarm, batteries needed to be changed. Took it off the wall, took the battery out and went back to sleep:) ahhhh sleep:):) lol
Gym by 8:30.
First stop was to see my Cousin Dawn ❤at her work. I know I can usually find her there. Chatted for a few minutes and let her get back to work.
Headed off to Welland to see 2 of my Aunts on my Mom's side. First was my Aunt Linda ( Mom's sister) and Uncle Ron❤ ( pic attached) I only stopped at the house long enough to snap their photo and I was off to see my Aunt Yvette❤( My Uncle Mickey❤ who passed away, his Wife and my Mom's sister in law) I found Aunt Yvette outside in her garden. We had a nice visit, she told me how her grandchildren were all doing and told me a couple stories about Uncle Mickey. When Uncle Mickey needed his medications, which was every 3 hours, he would pat Aunt Yvette's head and twirl her hair. So, Aunt Yvette wondered what he would do if she had a toque on her head, he patted it still but then instead of twirling her hair because he couldn't he knocked on her head:) This brought a smile to my Aunts face which was nice to see! I'm so glad I went to see Aunt Yvette❤
I then met my Aunt Linda at the Timmies, we sat outside and had a nice visit also. Caught up on how my cousins were doing and found out how my Aunt is playing bingo through covid. They play in their cars, kind of like going to a drive in, sit in your car in a parking lot , turn on the radio station and hear the caller and if you win , you honk your horn:) Funny eh?
I stopped at the cemetery to visit my Mothers grave.❤My Aunt Diane ❤and Uncle Lou❤ are both buried at the same cemetery . I shared the bouquet of flowers between the two spots.
Drove to Merriton to see my Uncle Jim( Dad's Brother) ❤and Aunt Faye ❤and Cousin Cory❤. Sorry I didn't get to see you Sue, maybe next time❤ Great visit! ( pic)
Headed to Thorold to see Uncle Cliff ( Dad's Brother) and Aunt Linda❤ Cousin Dawn's parents. Sorry I didn't get to see you Sherry, maybe next time❤
Great visit! ( pic)
Dad initially was up for a visit and 10 minutes later he changed his mind. No visit today:(
Leftover turkey at my Brother and Sisters. mmmmmm delicious!
Thoroughly enjoyed all the family time today❤

Day 17

semi-overcast 14 °C

Slept in until 8:30, ok..... didn't really sleep the entire time but layed in bed until 8:30! :)
Was at my brother's by 11 to go for a walk. Headed down to the lake. ( Lake Ontario). I'm hoping that we have another clear day coming, so I can get a picture of the skyline of Toronto. I could see it today but it wasn't showing in the pics I took.
Went to see Dad , he asked about the music again:) I was able to get video this time. My brother played the music on his phone and I caught the video! Dad was thrilled to see all of us but I think a little more thrilled with the lindor chocolates and the pumpkin pie!
My sister put together an incredible Turkey dinner tonight! Pics attached. Thank you Laurie❤ Everything was delicious! This is the first time I've been home for Thanksgiving dinner. We all said what we were grateful and thankful for. It was an awesome way to finish the holiday weekend!
We all helped Hailey with homework after dinner where we all were active participants! It took us a bit to get it done but eventually we got there. A few interruptions and more than a few laughs in the process!
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone❤
