Saturday in the city

You know, if you need a vacation, create one.  Even in your own hometown.  We took Granny & Jed on a mini-adventure around Freddytown.  I enjoyed it -- I hope they did...
Here's what we did:

1.  had a tour of the new YMCA
2. Grant Harvey centre -- Dad & Doug watched hockey while Mom and I walked around the walking track quite a few times and talked
3.  Tried to go to the Regent mall but it was too busy
4.  Sat in traffic
5.  Went to DQ and I stood in line forever and treated mom & dad to ice cream
6.  Northside Market, where Mom bought a huge bird feeder.  I bought apples.  Doug had to take apart the bird feeder to get it home, part of it sticking out the window

Not much of a vacation, but a little outing, I guess.  But you know?  Just getting out of the house on a drab spring-like day is often enough to lift your spirits.  Try it you'll like it.  It then continued on for us:
 7. Doug was on the phone to Aliant once again for about 45 minutes, this time about his Mother's phone line, which no one can call in.  We have now spent DAYS this past year talking to Aliant.  Every month there is something we have to call Aliant about.  Why is the phone company so difficult to talk to???  (PUN intended)
8. Worked on my paperwork in my office -- yay...Doug on his computer.  (reminds me of Mama in her kerchief and I in my cap or something like that)
9.  To Wendy's for a bite to eat and met up with a couple of friends...
10.  To Canadian Tire.  Bought snowshoes for Doug and a thermarest for Sally (Deb), for our trip to Blaine Maine, and 35th anniversary trip in May to canoe the Restigouche River (gotta plan ahead)...
11.  Home to work in the office again and prepare for Sunday.   Doug on computer once again.  He is working, by the way...not on social media...
12. Watched a movie rented from Aliant -- I'm sure we'll have to call them next month when this appears on the bill.  My father was a telephone man for 40 years.  I doubt he experienced difficulty with the phone like we do today.  Doug's mother still has no phone connection

All in all, a mini-vacation/work Saturday.  Relaxing nonetheless.  Looking forward to this week, as I am really going to try and go on vacation.  Looking forward to an A-Frame in Blaine Maine.  (On the plains and I hope it doesn't rain).
