I seem to be getting into a routine on what things to post and when. Friday's are my weekly favourite things posts. Monday's seem to be "a what happened this past week," type of post. I am a woman of habit, and I enjoy routines. It's a good thing in my book.
We had the coldest week of the 2022/23 Winter season so far this past week. The heating seemed to be on constantly Thursday though Saturday. I paid January's gas bill on Wednesday and saw quite a jump in the bill this time round, wasn't happy, but the older he gets the more hubby feels the cold, so turning down the heat isn't an option. Me, I am still "hot-flash" Annie, so rarely feel the cold.
Took grandson for his swimming lesson on Friday. That will now be a regular thing in the hopes we get somewhere with his swimming. He is not confident in the water; hates putting his head under water. Which would be fine but they have an inground pool in their back yard, so being able to swim is a priority. It's a life skill everyone should have. Won a new two piece swimsuit at this week's online auction, as I haven't bought one in years.
Popped into Costco earlier in the week, to pick up a couple of things and nearly got mowed down in the store by a woman on one of those motorized wheelchairs. Let me tell you the story..........
I was walking past a food sample location and the lady was giving out samples of Krispy Kreme donuts. Now I haven't had those in years; I find them too sweet, but decided why not try a sample to see if I still felt the same. I politely asked for a sample and stepped back from the area, only to hear "watch out behind you."
A lady on one of those motorized wheelchairs with the shopping cart on the front came zooming up behind me. I stepped out of the way, and was just going to ask her if she would like me to get her a sample, with her being in a wheelchair. When up she popped from the wheelchair, like a woman on a mission.
Now before I could put my filter in my mouth, out pops the word's, "oh you can walk then," from me 😳 She turns round after grabbing her donut and said, "I have just had a heart attack, that's why I need to use the wheelchair."
Both me and the woman giving out the samples just look at her. Hopefully I remembered not to roll my eyes............oh, and yes the donuts are still too sweet for me.
Then this for my fellow Canadians, got my Zoomer magazine this week and there was a really interesting article about Chrystia Freeland. I must say I actually like her. Don't have much time for most politicians but do like her. There was also a lot of interesting articles about vacations. Oh and yes we are going to Charleston, South Carolina this year for our vacation, that's why I picked up that puzzle.
