We had a pretty relaxing morning, puttering around and working on getting a blog posted. After lunch, Steve went out for a power walk...we are going over to Chris and Angela's this afternoon and I didn't want to get all hot and sweaty before we go...LOL.
We headed out just before 2:00 for the half hour drive to Chris and Angela's place in Coquitlam...where we spent a lovely afternoon out on their deck. Isaac was a little leery of us, playing shy and cranky at first, but he soon warmed up and had a great time playing with Grampa (seems Gramma isn't as much fun, LOL!)...
Tuesday (May 19) was basically the last nice day before clouds and rain were supposed to roll in. So we decided to drive back to Blackie's Spit and instead of walking the park, we'd walk along Crescent Beach. This was also the first day of phase 2 in BC where we are allowed to expand our bubble a little and many businesses are allowed to open, so with many people going back to work it wasn't very busy on the trail...
Wednesday and Thursday were our "run of the mill" days...cloudy for the most part...out for our usual walks, puttering around, watching TV and reading.
Friday (May 22) started cloudy with the threat of rain...thank goodness it stayed dry out though, it was our errand running day. We started with our usual grocery pick up and after dropping it off at home, we headed back out. I had an order to pick up at Hudson Bay in Langley. We also tried to find a recycling depot but had no luck...one was very busy and there was no way we were going to get our truck into and the other didn't take anything but batteries. Ok then...that will just have to wait!
Late afternoon, our neighbours, Roland and Carol joined us for happy hour...helping us celebrate our 38th wedding anniversary. After that, Steve grilled steaks for our anniversary dinner...unfortunately, they were a let down, quite tough for a NY strip loin!
After dinner, Steve had a great idea...lets watch the Eagles DVD! Good plan, but we had to find a device that would play it. For some reason the DVD player in our home theatre doesn't work anymore, nor did the player in our newer laptop...our final try was on our old laptop, with success!
Saturday (May 23) morning was another cloudy start. We had our fingers crossed that it would clear by this afternoon, as per the forecast...Chris, Angela and Isaac are coming out this afternoon for a barbecue.
I also found out this week that my cataract surgery has been rescheduled for June 3, so along with a pre-op, I require an ECG. I was a little concerned with the lack of time I had to get these done, but no problem, I managed to get an appointment for the ECG this morning and a virtual appointment with my doctor next Monday.
Chris, Angela and Isaac arrived at about 2:30 and just as the forecast had said, it did brighten up a lot with patches of blue sky poking through. We had another wonderful visit with them.
Grampa reading Issac a book...
Sunday was a pretty quiet day...we woke to clouds and also had some rain. So it was pretty much an inside day. Nothing really exciting to report!
