I guess that I got myself a bit run down with not going to bed early enough and getting up early, not getting enough sleep, never mind my beauty sleep...  I  was feeling a bit of a tickle in my throat and right away I took a double dose of Echinacea and vitamin C and now I'm drinking a cup of Echinacea tea. I usually nip the cold in the bud before it develops into misery.

It's been  really windy and rainy today, and the road is covered with fallen leaves. I've been too preoccupied to take any photos today.

I brought my car to the repair shop not far from here where I usually go,  for the 1:30 appointment my husband made for me, and waited for my husband to come right behind to pick me up with the truck.  I waited in this shop's parking lot and waited in the pouring rain. Then I called him on his cell and asked "where are you?"" I'm at Coast Tire" he says. "Well you never told me and I really can't read minds you know" So I'm backing on the road and can hardly see through all the rain in the rear window. I got there safely and dropped the car off to have a new ball joint put in. They were pretty quick and now the clunk is gone.

When I got my car back, not a minute too soon, I went to town to pay my road assistance insurance CAA and came back home.   The power went out for a while and at the same time my cell phone battery died out so I couldn't charge it. It a new phone and to extend the battery charge, I'm supposed to let the battery fully uncharged and charge three times to set the battery memory for longer charge.

I was late for work of course and when I finally got home I washed up and asked my husband if he wanted to go to Julia's Pub for fish & Chips. So we has a tasty meal of HighLiner Haddock in Batter and PEI Cavendish Oven fries and each a bottle of Alexander Keith beer.The nice thing about, I didn't had to go back in the rain or take my wallet out but had to wash the dishes . Sorry, it never dawned on me to take a photo. I was too hungry. lol

I'm off to bed earlier tonight.   Thanks for dropping by.

I almost forgot to mention that Mrs MOUSE never showed up. I think that it was her husband coming in to check up the joint.   JB
