A welcomed day! New plants for spring 2023

And once more I welcomed my new plants, thanks to Nick’s wonderful assistance. All I had to do was to tell him what colours I wanted and he did the rest.

Nick went to the garden centre, chose my plants and then brought them back to my condo.  Finally,  he patiently planted them for me!

This is an annual occurrence.  Nick plants for me and then he and his wonderful wife clean my windows and balconies.

Bless you Nick and your wife Lilee!

One more time! Rearranging my freezer and fridge

Every so often it happens and it is Mom who does the rearranging and repacking.  At the end of the day my fridge and freezer are much neater and all I need to do now is to learn where she has put things.

I have become more used to Mom’s regular events; she just loves to rearrange and repack.  She does it patiently and with gusto while I just look on.

Nothing for me to do but to wait until she is done and then I take time to relearn.

Boy, did I learn so much! Course is over

 


And what a relief!  From April 02 – May 19, 2023, I and 5 other students participated in the Carroll Centre’s SRUTT course and what a wonderful experience it was!

I learned so much, worked alongside some great folks and at the end of it all?  I certainly enhanced my technical knowledge.  

Above all, I had the pleasure to have had Nick Corbett as my head instructor.  This unbelievable young man reminded me of the Energizer Bunny!  He kept going and never seemed to tire out!  He guided, advised, and taught with an unusually strong hand and committed spirit.

Now it’s time to put my training to work and I cannot wait!

A mild surprise! Discovering an extra pair of shoes

I guess that I was not careful enough, eh?  Ah yes, and there it was!  An extra pair or another pair of shoes sitting in my tote on the floor of my closet.  

This means that I had to take all of my shoes out and then to re-identify and rearrange them.  All in a day’s work.

A messy experience! When egg yolk fell on my clothes


 And oh my gosh!  I only realized that it had fallen on my shirt when I felt something warm on my chest. As soon as I had investigated I discovered that the egg yolk from my fried egg had fallen on my shirt.

These are the times when I describe it as a silent fall.  No noise, no indicator, just the warmth of  something on my chest.  Just glad that Mom was there to confirm and to help me clean it up.

Technology once more! Turning up the volume on my phone

 

Looking back at this now I can only smile to myself as I recall.  You see, I had to spend a few trying moments to find the volume button on my land line phone.  All that I wanted to do was to turn up the volume.

There I was, going through all of the buttons on my poor old phone before finding the right one.  And if I had taken the time to be logical about it, things would definitely have gone more smoothly for me.  However, on this particular day my patience seemed to have deserted me.

After a few minutes I did find it and at the end of it all it was not as complicated as I thought it would be.

Plant shopping with Mom: Seeking saucers for my plant pots

For the most part it is Mom who helps me to seek saucers for my plant pots.  She is bound and determined to ensure that water does not spill onto my carpets and as a result she is very meticulous in how she goes about choosing them.

Not only does she take great care to choose the saucers but she also buys sheets of thick plastic to place under the saucers.  This way, the water will not spill onto the carpet and I can tell you that, as a vision-impaired person, it is paramount that this does not happen because it would be very difficult for me to know unless I stepped into the water.

Of course, I could always be extra careful myself each time I water my plants.
