Scratchings in the Dirt

December. Already. Somewhere I’ve lost a month or so. If any of you are coming here during the holidays, please don’t inspect the cupboards or the corners!

Well, the hockey didn’t go so well this weekend. Stephen’s team lost to Warman 4 -1 on Friday night. The Warman team was hungry! Adam went to Lucky Lake to play the Outlook team and lost 3 – 1. I didn’t go along because Derek was sick with the stomach flu that has been going through the school. He had a yucky day, and missed his game in town against Biggar. Kerrobert won, though, with some ridiculously high score. Derek didn’t get to church this morning, either, but was miraculously better when we got home. My insides are a bit questionable today, as well, but I did manage to get to church to play the piano. I warned the choir just in case I had to do a dash to the washroom!

The weather is milder today, but a cold wind is causing some ground drifting and a windchill. It’s nice to be home for the rest of the day. Maybe some Christmas preparation can take place!

Lisa called from Russia and left a message. It was good to hear her voice. I think she is still finding it a bit of a challenge, but I’m hoping that as she gets to know the people there she will find it more agreeable. I’m going to use Dad’s handy-dandy calling plan and try to reach her today. Thanks, Dad!

Clem and I took Marj to her doctor’s appointment on Friday. She is experiencing some edema again – nothing new for her – and it seems if she doesn’t deal with it right away she ends up in the hospital. Her arm is still sore but is healing. She can use her right hand a bit now, which makes life easier for her. I think she was glad to get out of the house for a bit – it’s been six weeks since she broke her arm, and has only been out a couple of times for tests at the hospital. She even took us for lunch after her appointment! Thanks, Marj! With this flu going through our house, we didn’t go for our usual Sunday brunch at her place. She likes to see everyone at least once a week, although now Chris has been doing most of the cooking for us. So we’ll miss the visit and the brunch, but Chris will appreciate the break.

Talk to you all later.
