We had a lovely visit with our Uncle Harold the other day. Uncle Harold is my mother's youngest sister Freda's husband. We all love Uncle Harold very much and it was so nice to get to see him and spend time with him and his wife Barb. Aunt Freda has been gone many years now. She passed on their wedding anniversary when she was only 64 from lung cancer. Anyways, Uncle Harold was so surprised to see us all and I think very pleased that we had taken the time to go up there. He lives up the North Mountain in a house overlooking the bay. It really was a nice visit, and it was so nice to be able to do it together, the three of us.
We are very much enjoying having our baby brother around. Who knows how many more times we will have this opportunity. We are all getting up there in years now and each day given to us is a bonus and a blessing. I find myself wishing he lived closer, but he has been in Ottawa since he was a very young man, and all of his children are there (as well as his wife and her family!) so that is where his home is and quite rightly so. As we get older though, the ability and desire to travel becomes less and less . . .
So, in any case, we are enjoying these few days together. Yesterday we went to dad's and gave him a bath while David sorted out some things on his computer. Our father has just discovered Pinterest. He keeps calling it "Printerest." He had wanted our brother to get his printer working so he could print some things from "Printerest."
On Wednesday night we all went to supper with dad to the Big Scoop. Dad and I broke from tradition and did not have fish and chips. David, Cindy and I are planning on going to Jonny's, tomorrow I think, and I am saving my fish and chips for then! I think tonight will be pizza night with pizza from our cousin Hal's pizza place in town.
I have also managed to get all the legal stuff done for my will, etc. this week. The timing worked out perfectly so that I could do it while my brother was here as he and my sister are both co-executor's of my will. Not that I have much of an inheritance to leave, but at least I have the peace of knowing that what I do have is in good hands.
Each day now brings big changes around us. The leaves are really turning and changing color now and falling to the ground. It was only 5 degrees when I got up this morning and it was quite misty out. We do get those misty mornings in the autumn here in the valley. The other day our skies were covered in a haze of smoke from the fires in Labrador and Quebec. It was hanging right over us. You could see the sun, but it was like a gold ball in this pewter colored sky. Very odd.
