Seems like as good a time as any to ramble on for awhile. 2020 is coming to an end so it’s time to recap. My summer was great - golfing, golfing and more golfing. For over 20 years I’ve played regularly with the same women and every year we’ve taken a photo. This year’s is a bit different-
I also worked a bit at Sask Hospital and the end of August I bought a cabin on Maymont Beach which is on Murray Lake. It’s the most heavenly spot! I’ve been looking for a place for a few years. Living in a condo, I don’t have a yard to look after - my garden box on my deck doesn’t keep me busy, nor does the small garden plot I’ve enjoyed for the past four or so years. I would follow the real estate ads, drive along beaches looking for ‘for sale’ signs and even stop and poke around the odd place but nothing ever felt perfect until this year. I needed a pretty special place - one on pavement all the way to town so I could ride my motorcycle, a place on a nice beach - not a hill hanger and preferably sand, a cabin cabin - not a house that I have to worry about in the winter - wondering if the heat is still on or if the pipes are frozen, not a fancy place - I want to do some renovations and make it my own and nothing too big or too terribly expensive! Ha! Well, while visiting friends/family at Cochin one morning, I learned of this place being for sale. Jane and I went immediately to have a look and wow! Walking down the path to the cabin -
Lots of work needs to be done but I am looking very forward to this coming summer as are Jane and family-
Since golf ended mid October, I’ve been subbing a lot. It’s something to do and I really enjoy the little kids. I’ve been to four different schools and each one runs differently because of COVID. Some schools have normal physed classes in the gym, others are only outside unless it’s -27 or colder. Some gather outside with their cohorts until the bell rings to start classes, others come in and go directly to their class room. Some have specific times when students can use the bathrooms while others are allowed to go when they like. One school division wants subs to not only wear a mask but also a visor! If you think it’s hard wearing a mask, throw on a visor and see what that’s like!
I decided that if I was spending the winter at home, I would work as much as possible. It gives me something to do and the pay is pretty awesome!
Of course, the main reason I stayed home was because of the angels. Nico is 4.5, Andi 2.5 and Hayes 8 months-
Andi refused to go anywhere near Santa so this year it’s just the boys-
