August 26th – On a Roll!

There are weeks when nothing seems to work out regardless of how hard I try.ย  ๐Ÿฅบ Then the are weeks that work out fairly well, but there are just enough snafus to be rather annoying.ย ๐Ÿคจ And then, there are weeks like this week! ๐Ÿ˜

Yesterday, I sent a quick message to myย  niece Teenie (Jeanne Christine) I had not spoken to her for few months.ย  She messaged back and we had a nice chat.ย  This morning, my sister Lorraine sent a message, and we chatted for a bit.ย  My family is scattered across western Canada and the US.ย  We don’t connect often, so when we do it is always special. ๐Ÿ’ž

After my chat with Lorraine, I went outside to feed the squirrels and birds. I stopped to check the garden and found a few more cucumbers ready for picking. We already have more cucumbers than we can use so I decided to make relish. Since I haven’t done any canning or pickling for a couple of decades, I needed to make a run to Walmart to pick up some canning jars and a few other things.

That is when I really started to roll! I don’t care to drive at the best of times but today things went better than usual. The drive itself was fine. ๐Ÿ™‚

The parking went better! I love that backup camera. ๐Ÿ‘
I got everything I needed – and it fit into the top basket of the cart, where I could reach it at the checkout. ๐Ÿ‘
I got home and again the parking went darn near perfect. ๐Ÿคฉ
And… The canning rack I bought fit into my canning pot – perfectly. ๐Ÿฅณ

Finally, my surgeon’s office called to book my hernia surgery! It turned out we couldn’t book it yet because the lab hasn’t set up my catscan and bloodwork but the woman I talked to is going to call them to get me in there ASAP!! So, it is progress. ๐Ÿ˜Š

There are special days when great things happen. Those days are amazing. But the regular days when special things happen, or regular things just work great – those days are just GOLD! ๐Ÿค—

I hope your day is going well. Take care and see you tomorrow! ๐Ÿ’ž

  1. Love it when my weeks are great! Keeps that contented feeling deep inside. Hope your surgery gets scheduled soon. Is your Jeep black or navy? I drive a 2018 Navy Jeep Cherokeeโ€ฆ

  2. Ours is Black. I think it is a 2017 but was virtually new when we got it. We have had it for three years this November and I learned how to use the backup camera for parking this week. ๐Ÿ™„


  3. I am so happy for you having a nice week, getting to chat with loved ones is such a special time. Good job on your parking and driving. Hoping progress keeps being made in getting your surgery scheduled and done. Enjoy this day!


  4. Oh you had me smiling Annemarie!! ๐Ÿ˜€What a great day! Everything went smoothly, and to top it off you got that important phone call to get that surgery soon!! YAY! What a great post, so positive and fun. I felt like I went with you on your adventures on this day. Did the relish or canning turn out good? Sounds yummy!! ๐Ÿ’œ

  5. Thank you, Diana. It would have been so fun to have you on my adventure for real. ๐Ÿ˜. We could have stopped at one of my favourite lunch places to top things off. The relish seems ok. I didn’t taste it but Dan said it smelled good. The lids sealed so that was cool. ๐Ÿ‘
