Day 110

Not a bad day today, despite the rain, on and off all day.  Was clear and starting to get sunny by the time Rick and I got home this afternoon.

Dis some work on my GMT work.  Have a bunch of the envelopes almost ready to go.  Just have to pick up some stamps. Had to print off the letters to put in the envelopes. Its a bit of work but I really enjoy it.

Looking forward to seeing what the upcoming year has to bring.

Now just playing on the computer for a little while, and heading off to bed really soon.

All in all, a good day.

Day 109

Good day today.  Went to church this morning.  After the service was over, went for a bit of a drive.  The novelty has not yet worn off the car, hehe.  Then we headed to a spot in Markham for a Lions Club meeting of one of the local clubs.  We have not been to this club before, so was nice to see how they do things.  A campaign speech was done for a person who is running for Region Chair.  The present Region Chair was there for her official visit, while she was there, she did and induction of 2 new members. And Rick and I were there visiting.

Came home, and a bite to eat.  Played on the computers for a while, and will be heading to bed very, very soon.

All in all a pretty good day.

Day 108

We finally got our car yesterday.  Man is she sweet.  And we have her named already.  The car is a 2011 Nissan Altima.  Black in colour.  And her name is Black Betty. We took her for a bit of a drive.  Nice riding car.  Just have to get used to the different spot for the gear shift.  But I do know that the windshield wipers work great.

After taking her for a bit of a drive, went to a friends house to show her off, and ended staying to watch a movie.  We watched
“Walk the Line”.  It was an awesome movie.

Came home, vegged for a bit, and went to bed.

Day 107

Today was an okay day up until I went to pick up Rick.  Just as he was about to get in the van, got a call that the car was not ready for us today.  So needless to say, I was not a happy camper.  Had to call the insurance company back and have them extend our insurance on the van until we get the car tomorrow.  Hoping to get her early but may not get her til the evening.

I was not happy on the way home.  Things were only made worse by darling laughing at how upset I was.  I got over it, but it took a while.

Hopefully tomorrow will be a much better day and will will get the car earlier than expected.

Day 106

Good day today.  Dropped Rick off at work this morning.  Puttered around a bit.  Worked a little bit on some Lions GMT stuff.  Rested for a little while, then started getting ready to head out to do a few errands before picking Rick up at work.

Picked Rick up at work.  Headed towards Oshawa to got the Oshawa Airport Lions Club meeting.  Great group of members.  DG Lion Eleanor also attended this meeting to do an induction of a new member.  Rick and I attended for two reasons.  One was we wanted to attend one of their meetings to see how their meetings go, and two, I had to present a Lion with her New Member award pin for completing the New Member challenge that is mailed out to each new member after they are inducted.

All in all today was a good day.

Day 105

Not a bad day today.  Was kept quite busy with making phone calls trying to get things done for picking up our car on Friday afternoon.  Finally got everything done, and I was able to pick Rick up on time from work.

Came home, cleaned up and got ready to head out to go to our Lions Directors meeting.  Good meeting,.  We were even out of there a little early.

Came home, worked on a little bit more Lions stuff to start getting ready for the Awards night near the end of the Lions year.  Having a good year as president, be it a tad trying at times.  But a good year all the same.

All in all a pretty good day.

Day 104

Another pretty good day.  Made a bunch of phone calls that I needed to get done.  Did some banking I had to do.  Dropped off some stuff we needed to drop off.

Went down to our unit to put some stuff in there.  And cleaned some stuff out of the van.  Now just veggin for a while.

Heading to bed soon though, tired this evening from all the running around had to do today.

Day 103

Good day today.  Had a restless night sleep last night, but such is life.  So came home a took a short nap.  Puttered around the apartment for a bit.  Fed the birds.  Removed an egg from one of the cages that one of the birds laid.  Don’t need anymore baby finches. heheh.

Did a couple of errands.  Picked up a few things. Headed in to pick Rick up at work.

Came home, had a bite to eat, now heading off to bed very, very shortly.

Day 102

Yesterday was a pretty good day.  Went to church in the morning.  Kids program made up the main part of the service.  They did an awesome job.

After leaving church, we headed off to Bowmanville to go watch a bunch of friends have one of their first outdoor practices before the season officially gets underway.  Great turnout.

Then came home and puttered around, mostly on the computers.  Rick, as usual working on the website stuff as well as some pictures from the church service and ball game.  And I was working on some Lions stuff.

All in all a pretty good day.

Day 101

Early rise this morning, but for a good reason.  Rick and I went to a day of training for Lionism.  Training was called “CEP or Club Excellence Process”.  We were doing the basics of learning to be facilitators for this program.  Very interesting program.  Think before I would want to facilitate a program like this, I would want to go through the training at least a couple more times.  But think it would be something that is doable.  Just need to get the confidence level up a little higher, and get a bit better at public speaking.

This of course will come in time, starting next year once I become Zone Chairperson.  Which I am also looking forward too.  Being president this year has given me more confidence, and I have also been learning more about writing speeches and such.  I am kinda proud of myself.

So, all in all, today was a very good day.
