JAN 17, Saturday; Work for a couple hours
I was up early as I had to go to work to make the delivery we loaded yesterday to Cultus Lake. I was back at the office by 10:30 am and home by 11:30 am but first I stopped at COTTONWOOD RV to check on the MH; all was good there. Val went to town to pick up groceries. We went to OJ for snacks and a beer, only Vanessa was working so we had a short visit with her as it was busy. We then tried to see “SNIPER” at the Movie but it was sold out so we bought a ticket for tomorrow evening. We stopped at our favorite pub and that place was also packed but we did manage to get a seat for a beer then came home and watched “VIKINGS”.
JAN 18, Sunday; Football play-offs
I woke up during the night feeling very dizzy and ended up barfing in the toilet!?? That whole episode lasted about 10-15 minutes then I was able to go back to bed and sleep. WOW!!!! I think I got food poisoning!?? This morning it is raining and we have a strong wind from the East. Val did laundry and I wash the dishes after a good breakfast.
JAN 19, Monday; back to work
We had rain and sunshine throughout the day but we were inside for all of it! Today, we had a new employee starting, Bob, cousin of Rochelle, and him and I and Graeme and Kevin worked on a job in Chilliwack while the other three went to Langley to work on that project. I got a new experience as we installed glass walls for an office. It was interesting to see how it is all put together. We were done by 3:30 pm and I was home by 4:20 pm. A good day! For dinner, Val made meat balls and potatoes and gravy…one of my favorites. She also had a good day at work albeit only 4 hours.
JAN 20, Tuesday;
Val worked today and I went to Langley to pick up a manual lift for the truck then got to use it when I picked up 4 palettes of doors. I ended up at our project in Langley helping the guys. We all got back to the office by 3:30 pm and I emptied the truck and placed the palettes in storage then loaded the old aluminum from the job site into the bin which is now full. Val made a shrimp dinner then we watched the tube for a while. She was in bed by 9 pm as she got a call to show at 6 tomorrow morning.
JAN 21, Wednesday;
Val was gone by the time I got at 6 am. I had more pick-ups and deliveries to make today and I also worked in the shop for a while cutting and drilling metal channels for the job in Langley. It was a decent day with some sunshine peeking through the clouds at times. Home, dinner, some TV and to bed early
JAN 22, Thursday; busy day driving
First thing today, I had to deliver a window to a private house then back to the shop and onwards to ACCURATE DOORS in Burnaby. I loaded the biggest load I ever had. The truck was full with pallets and door frames with the last palette being delivered nearby at a job site we have a contract with. Then it was back to Chwk to unload the balance of the load then reload some frames and doors and delivered these at a job site in Abbottsford. So…it was a very busy day. Back at the shop, I loaded more door frame for another job here in Chwk which I will take to the “home shop” tomorrow. Val didn’t work today. It was somewhat warm (9*C) and rained most of the day especially in the afternoon.
