November 13 to 19, 2014; Vanessa birthday and shopping for winter clothes

NOV  13, Thursday; To Hope
It was blooming cold this morning, only 2*C at 9 am.  It felt much colder in Hope where we worked today, since the sun didn’t come out from behind the mountain until 1 pm.  We had to install new windows in an ad-on at a business here and were completed by 3:30 pm and back at the shop by 4:15.  Still learning a lot and that’s good!  A quiet evening catching up to more recordings on the PVR.


NOV  14, Friday; transport and a short day!  Vanessa Birthday.
I spent my day driving to Langley and Aldergrove dropping off and picking up.  I made a stop in Abbotsford where I dropped off a door and some capping then came back to the shop.  I unloaded a door, cleaned up the truck and signed out.  I was home by 3 pm.  Val is out shopping for groceries and whatever else so I am catching up to the blog and some finances.


NOV  15, Saturday; Shopping for winter clothes
After a relaxing and lazy morning, we went to town to MARKS where I bought a pair of wool gloves/mitts for work then we went to the MH where I got my toque, leather gloves and cowboy hat and Val got some of her warmer clothes too.  We went to our favorite local pub and had a beer and appies then came home.  More relaxing and watching the tube


NOV  16, Sunday;
Watched football; Seattle vs Kansas City.  Seattle lost!  We drove to Abbotsford after the game to Costco and bought buns and feta cheese.  Coming home, we took a different route via Yarrow and came out in Vedder Crossing then up the hill to our place.  Val made a stew for dinner and we ate early as we had to go to Rochelle & Kevin’s house for birthday cake and ice cream; it was Vanessa birthday this past Friday.


NOV  17 to 19; More work!
The last three days were busy and I got to work on some different projects, one being getting a skyline over a pool ready to have windows installed.  I also did some deliveries.  Today was spent on Abbotsford’s project.  It’s been sunny but cold and today was the warmest of them all at 7*C and no winds; a pleasant day.  At home, I spent an hour on the phone with Verizon and never resolved the problem.  I also had to call VIRGIN as they over-billed me.  What a way to spend an evening!!!
