While this day is set aside historically for the recognition of labour and the workers that have built our country, it more accurately represents the end of slumber like days of summer where shorts, t-shirts and sandals often replace the more formal wear of everyday work. Our time at the trailer is now mostly done – next week is marked on my calendar as clean up and close the trailer. I will even winterize it.
I’m surprised how many people pay someone to come do this for them – perhaps as we don’t have the cash to throw away I tend to be a bit more frugal in this regard. It’s just not that hard.
End of summer also signals that our calendar will be filling up. Later in the autumn, I have a trip to Alberta and I am really looking forward to a chance to see Amanda, Philip and the three kids! It’s been too long since we’ve been out there. While it’s been great to have Jason and his three kids closer, it still means that we don’t see the western Waters as I refer to them, that often.
My eye continues to heal and while the retinal surgeon says my eye pressure is still a bit high, that the healing progresses well. They can see that I have a wrinkle on the retina and have told me that they can do some “smoothing’ if needed. I’m not sure I want to know how that is done!
This is, by the way, one of my favourite cartoons!
