Holiday Weekend

I decided to semi-retire this year. I now work only 30 hours a week. six and a half from Monday to Thurday and four hours on Friday. Medically I need a little more time off. I have to see a heart specialist as I am short of breath and my doctor wants it checked out. I keep telling people I am getting old but none of them seem to believe me. I believe I will fully retire in 2014 when the hospital I am working on is completed but you never know, I could decide to go earlier. 

Because of my working hours I get Thursday afternoon off this week plus Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Thursday afternoon I plan to help Frances get her photos from the iPod to the computer. We took loads of pictures in the last couple of weeks of the Orchid Show in London and Clara Boogerd's Birthday. Frances is Clara's Greatgrandmother. Friday morning we are going out to Sweaburg for pancakes and sausage at the annual 4H Maple syrup breakfast. I was quite surprised to see that Jakeman's maple products are sold in US Airports. I am hoping that the trilliums are blooming as there is a small Trillium Provincial Park across the road from Jakeman's. If things work out on Saturday I am going to a Mosque in London for an International Food and Shopping fair. I hope that Frances can come. I love to take a look at other cultures and this should be interesting.

I sent cards to the Ukraine, Estonia and Malaysia this week - I won't show you them until they either arrive or expire.
Cards that arrived at their destination this week were a whale , a bicycle and a very large train.

A couple of cards expired this week. Too bad I liked them both and would like them on my wall.

I will let you know how the weekend goes and if I got any Easter eggs.  I did buy Hot Cross Buns --- they are a must in my family for celebrating Easter weekend.
