The smell of an old book that's new to me
I am days late with this, but better late than never?
On Sunday my wife and I got out to see our local Canadian Football League (CFL) team win their semi-final match against Hamilton.
Although it was cool (a bit below freezing) it was a bright and sunny day, so just being outside that much was nice, on top of enjoying the game. At half time we dashed out to a chocolate store in the complex beside the stadium and had some top notch hot chocolate (and split a panini). All in all it was just a great afternoon for a couple of very casual fans.
Ottawa was in control pretty much all game, but I didn't appreciate at the time what a masterful game their quarterback, Trevir Harris had. Six touchdown passes, no interceptions, only three incomplete passes, and passed to ten different players over the course of the game. It was cool to have seen such a exceptional game!
Awesome that you were there Tad! I decided not to drive back for the game since it would have been a long day, but I'm psyched to watch the big game on Sunday.
I also officially told my rep at TD Place I wasn't renewing my season tickets since I moved out of town. Worst. Breakup. Ever.
Whatever this is.
I have been needing to feel something besides heart ache, pain, and grief
Very recently reconnected with a friend whom I first met when I was only 15. Our lives took different paths and we hadn't seen each other or talked face to face since the summer of '82. He makes me smile and laugh just like he did all those years ago.
Happy for you! It definitely sounds like a much needed change from what you've been experiencing. I sincerely hope it leads to beiger and better things
I'm happy today because my favorite coffee shop had my favorite blend available as part of the daily coffee selection.
I have recently reconnected with my best friend from over 25years ago.
We now live in opposite ends of the country but with my job as a truck driver we are able to get together every other month.
I texted my friend and asked if i could come over. He said no. His small 2 bedroom apartment has 4 people living there that includes his new girlfriend.
That is what I am so happy about! My friend has been through alot. To include being homeless, the death of a step father that he was very close to, physically abused as a child by his real father, roommates that stole from him and a near death experience from severe alcoholism.
He is now 100% sober, has a good job and now a new love.
A few months from now he said that I am welcome any time after he and his girlfriend get a new place.
Playing with my new kitchen scale. One serving of cheese is SMALL!
Eat one carrot stick for every serving of cheese and the carrot cancels the cheese out! Just like broken cookies have no calories!
That my sister won’t be unmarked for much longer having at last located the unmarked plot where she was buried 67 years ago after being run over at 2 years old.
I'm very happy that today is almost over. I have had a bad backing day (trucker with a 53' trailer) and I haven't had one of those in months. I couldn't hit the docks or parking spaces today even if I had all the room in the world. Sigh
I love my kitchen scale. It is isn't it! Everything is super tiny when you measure it. Lol
That is beautiful
I'm happy today because I've been on the road for almost 3 straight weeks and I haven't done that in a long time. The light at the end of the tunnel is near. Heading home hopefully Wednesdsy or Thursday to enjoy the weekend. Supposed to be in the 80s so I will enjoy it a lot!
I am happy today because my shoes fit. Lost water weight in feet and ankles and reduced size so I fit nice shoes I used to wear to hospital appts in my 40s.
Today I am happy that a few folks took a look at my story and liked it. I am encouraged to write more.
I know how you feel. I am also a otr truck driver. Sometimes the simplest backing maneuver can be a bitch. And the next day you have a blind side that goes in in one shot.
I am happy for you Killexia. I stay out 6 weeks or so on average.
My first job as a rookie was minimum 5 weeks out. F THAT. I work for a laid back redneck company where I don't earn time off. I just take it. I'm usually out 2 weeks or less and home for 3 or 4 days.
I'm happy today because I was able to take a much needed nap. I love naps. Lol
