Reservations for 2022!!

Went to the doctor today.  Unfortunately  my GP is away until mid November so I am having to deal with a locum MD.  Sort of like a substitute teacher, who is just filling in and no extra mental energy required.  I already knew more that what he had to add to my current medical situation.  In fact he told me that he would have to do some research tonight based on what I had told him. He did try to help within his allotted ten minute session. He was already running 40 minutes behind so I knew my time with him would be brief. I had no confidence that he would be of help so my main purpose was to review my last test results ( all normal ) and to get my ears flushed.  I have been having trouble hearing, mostly due to wax build up.  So here I am seven hours later and not able to hear out of my right ear at all.  Too much water flushed in.  It had better sort itself out tonight as we are flying out tomorrow.

Meanwhile back home, Colin was starting to put our yard to bed for the winter.  Turns out that there was a bat in that umbrella and he had to put it back together to get the bat out.  No way did we want to deal with a dead bat next spring.

Kayak loose on the loose from the wind storm yesterday.

Our rain chains needed attention.

We had no idea that they were as clogged as they were.

Quite a bit of debris.  This task has been added to the annual to do list.

The sky last evening.

We are in the process, well actually, we have booked a trip for October 2020.  The fact is that we were forced to make a decision quickly as there were only two spots left.  I will admit to that contributing to my stress level these past two weeks. We finally were able to sort out all the details yesterday including the cancellation insurance.  We have never ever purchased cancellation insurance for a trip but as this is 13 months away we did.  In fact this is the first time we have booked a trip so far out but it is worth it. It seems that this destination is a top vacation location of late.  Will I tell you where we are going?  Of course not, you just have to stick with me.  This is a huge incentive for me to get my body back together.  A wee hint, the cost is more for a 19 day tour than our entire six week recent vacation to Europe 😯

    Nice to get things put away for winter and getting your body back in shape is a good thing. Sounds like you will be enjoying 19 expensive days somewhere next year.

    I would expect that with your medical background and inquiring mind that you would be well aware of whatever your health condition is. Finding a good doctor these days is like finding a good mechanic..difficult. in all the time that Eric was sick during 2015/2016 all his tests were normal…still a mystery.. as is the human body. Putting things away and slashing down my extensive perennial garden here also. Only just over a month till we leave too. I’ll blog our plans before we go…have to go to our daughters to use the internet.

      Thanks for checking Kathy. I thought that you had sorted out that internet situation. Yes the body is mysterious. Looking forward to hearing about your winter plans.

        Do have cell internet but it takes too much to do a post on line. Used to do my drafts on Open live writer. I’m going to try one of the fixes (I think you mentioned it) but I’m not sure if I can figure it out..quite complicated.

          Right, I forgot about that Open lie writer glitch. So sorry that you are having to deal with the and relearn a new system.
