Long Weekend

It's a long weekend but Rose is working everyday so I'm not planning on doing anything but veg a bit. Rose needs me for transportation, so I couldn't go very far anyway. Bram's supposed to bring a bike down for her when he comes the end of June and then we'll both have a little more flexibility.

My goal for today is to pay bills and order my texts for my course. I've felt all week that I've just been rushing from one thing to another, but I think that's primarily because I was busy all last weekend so didn't get my down time. I need down time.

I already practiced a little piano this morning - I stayed in bed until 7:30 (didn't actually sleep in as I woke up at 5). Rose got up to tell me that she wasn't planning on waking up until 8:30. I really can't feel that repentent though. She slept most of yesterday when she had the day off, so couldn't go to sleep until really late last night.

DeVon (my nephew, Jennifer's son) mowed the lawn for me Thursday. That's wonderful. It had been looking so bad, and I just couldn't find the time. I tried suggesting to Rose that it could be her responsibility, but although she's not working full time she is working 30 hours a week, and that's pretty close to full-time. In addition, she finds the warmer weather a real challenge - it takes awhile to adjust to the climate. DeVon then went and mowed Ruth's lawn yesterday, and he's scheduled to mow another teacher's lawn this afternoon. He's happy to be making the money, and we're all delighted to get the lawns mowed.

Lewvan Drive has been closed to one lane while they work on the roads. There's no access to Lewvan from 4th. This makes life interesting for anyone wanting to get to either my house or to Western. You have to know how to make the detours.

If you've checked Western's website recently, they now have a new letter up stating that things are going ahead for the next year. The official announcement to staff was Thursday and it went up on the website that evening. That's good news for all of us. You can read the letter for yourself - I've tried to include the link three times, (and I've done this before without any difficulty) but it doesn't seem to want to let me this time. It's on Western's website - the left bar near the top says "announcements" and it's the first one.
