Still married to my desk

Almost done Europe but there is always more computer work to do.  I still have a lot of paper work to get through but I am no longer stressing about it.  I am just taking what I think is the next most important task ( right now that is our trip ) and working on that.  I will get to the rest when I do.  Poor Colin has been out in the car everyday this week.  Even today he did me a huge favour.  I was out this morning as I had an appointment and on the way back I picked up some fish.  It wasn’t until I was back here at the computer that I realized that it was Easter weekend and that tomorrow was a holiday.  In fact most places are closed until Tuesday.  So Colin very graciously offered to go pick up my library books ( I am optimistic that I will get some free time over the next few days ) so that I could continue my research.  Lucky me.

Yesterday was a fun day.  We had some unexpected overhead visitors.  You can read about that here. First we heard them and then we saw them.  The first group did a special formation flypast before coming in to land.  We just watched with interest.  The noise is so loud that we can’t help but get up to see what is going on.

At least an hour later while Colin was in Vernon, I heard them again and grabbed my camera.  Can you see the plane in the tree branches?

I got this guy coming in. Considering how far away each plane was, I think my new camera did a great job.

Yesterday was mostly a windy, very windy day. Had I gone for a walk in the sunshine, my hat would not have stayed on.  I wonder if this is where I should mention that I have not had a true walk since we left the Isla.  Soon, soon.  My body is not happy with me.

So glad that we decided to have two levels of kitchen counter. The top level is full of my trip paperwork and all the frypans that I usually store in the oven.  Dinner last night was pizza again, just like last Wednesday.

I always make my pizza but if we happen to be in Vernon where there is a Papa Murphys we will pick one up.  Great price for a cook at home pizza that is very tasty.  Likely we won’t have another until July.  I still can’t believe that I forgot it was an extra long weekend.  Weekends aren’t important to us as we make our own special times off.  Hopefully our weather will clear up and we can get out and do some walks.

    Nice to get those things taken care of, now to have a relaxing long weekend.

    Stressing about things only makes one feel more stressed and more pressured. It doesn’t get anything accomplished any faster, so I applaud your new approach. Happy Easter.

      Thanks Deb. It was good knowing that I had the time to just go wit the flow and to remind myself that it will take as long as it takes. I just don’t like spending so much time at my desk.

  3. You must have seen the Snowbirds who were on their way here – they train in Comox every single Spring! Fun to watch…usually I am in the yard in my robe and they fly over. We are privileged to get to see them every April!
