Beautiful Morning

It was a beautiful morning yesterday and I had absolutely nothing written in my calendar.  So, I headed over to Fort Whyte Alive to go for a walk. I walked for about 2 hours, putting about 8,000 steps on my FitBit along with 6 flights of stairs (some stairs and some hills).  I took some… Continue reading Beautiful Morning

Some Progress & Some Trip Planning

It seems like I have been waiting forever to receive the proceeds from the sale of my house.  Well – I’m still waiting, but the mortgage, line of credit and personal loan have all been paid off!  🙂  They were all paid by my lawyer a few days ago though, and I am still waiting… Continue reading Some Progress & Some Trip Planning

St. Vital Park

I have lived fairly close to St. Vital Park for about 1/2 my life, but it is not a place that I ever go unless someone has scheduled an activity there (which doesn’t often happen).  I think I was at a toboggan party there many years ago and a picnic put on by one of… Continue reading St. Vital Park

The original waiting time from the exchange of possession date of the house was to be 2-4 weeks before I receive the money.  We are now at the end of week 1, so that leaves 1-3 weeks left to wait. As you may have guessed, I am very impatiently waiting for these funds in order… Continue reading Still Waiting

Third Walk – Third Deer

Yesterday morning, I decided to walk along the country road near my apartment again.  The first 2 times, I saw a deer each time and was wondering if there was any chance it would be 3 for 3. I just brought a little camera with me that doesn’t have much zoom, so I was hoping… Continue reading Third Walk – Third Deer

Life Goes On

Well, I am officially no longer a homeowner.  🙂 But, it will still be 2-4 weeks before I have been paid for the house that I no longer own. In the meantime, the water & hydro bills have to be processed, so the lawyer can pay the water bill and the loan on the hydro… Continue reading Life Goes On
