Slow Sunday Workout.

 Our Location today is Windsor, Ontario.

When I woke at 5:00 I figured that getting to the Gym early would be a good idea. I sat on the edge of the bed shut the Alarm, shut my CPAP Machine and blinked. The Clock suddenly was reading 6:12. So much for getting an early start.

There were less then a dozen people exercising when I walked into Planet Fitness. Due to the continued Congestion issues it was Four Days since my last workout. I managed after my Cardio Routine to complete Two Sets of my Free Weight Routine as well as a Cool Down before heading for the shower. My Hip was only giving me a twinge but not the Stabbing Pain that I’ve recently been experiencing.

What the sky looked like all day.

When I came out to the Car I was surprised to see that it had Rained while I was working out. It was just past 9:00 when I walked into the Apartment to find Kathy already at her Computer. Since she’d already finished her chores and had breakfast so I simply grabbed a snack before joining her.

When it came time for lunch we made Wraps using the Leftover Stir-Fry that I made the other day. We dressed them up slightly by adding Shredded Cheese which took them to an entirely different level. We also had Grapes and a Yogurt Cup for dessert.

Neither of us took anything for our Congestion the entire day but as it wore on we were both starting with that tell-tale Cough. We settled on a Halls to tide us over until this evening.

Looking outside the sky was filled with Clouds the entire day which really surprised me when I saw the Icon on The Weather Network.

Not feeling too hungry we had Meat Balls with Gravy on Egg Noodles for supper with Apple Sauce for dessert.

The 6 o’clock Local News reported on the Provincial Election and the Monkey Pox.

The Weather Network showed we reached a high of 63 F (17 C). It will be cooler tomorrow before we start seeing Seasonal Temperatures.

We are having a Night-Time Neo Citran before going to bed in an attempt to get rid of this Congestion. What we don’t want is to have a relapse back to the worst of this.

To all our Canadian Readers enjoy your Victoria Day Holiday.

Severe Rain, Monkey Pox and Doctored Pizza.

 Our Location today is Windsor, Ontario.

Even though I only felt slightly Congested when I woke at 5:00 this morning I had no energy to even get out of bed. Three Hours later when we finally got up I still lacked the energy I needed to go to the Gym.

This morning.

We kept breakfast lite with a Blueberry Muffin before heading to the Computers we could see the Sun slowly being hidden behind a wall of Clouds. Checking The Weather Network the Red Warning Sign was flashing a Risk Of Severe Thunderstorms. Checking the Radar there was the line of Storms heading directly for us. As if on cue there was a single clap of Thunder before the Rain started. Within a Half Hour the Rain stopped but the Clouds remained until noon. We would see the same thing happen in the early afternoon but the majority of the Rain would hit the west side of the city leaving us dry.

This morning's storm at 10:40.

For lunch we shared the Leftover Summer Spiral Pasta Salad along with Fresh Strawberries for dessert.

There were even less Job Ads to check out today and the closest one in my trade group was out in British Columbia. With all our Family residing in this area that is something not even worth considering.

Our 2:00 storm.

After 5:00 I doctored a Store Bought Medium Thin Crust Bacon Pizza by adding Chopped Onion, Chopped Mushroom and Grated Cheese. It tasted great but made it so filling we had to waddle around the room for a while.

The 6 o’clock Local News reported on the upcoming Provincial Election, the Monkey Pox and the Invasion of Ukraine.

This evening.

The Weather Network showed we reached a high of 75 F (24 C) early this morning and the temperature slowly decreased throughout the day thanks in part to all the Rain in he surrounding area.

Hoping things improve tomorrow.

Made Our Calls.

 Our Location today is Windsor, Ontario.

Even though I had Planned on going to the Gym this morning my stuffed up head had me staying in bed longer. When I finally got up at 8:05 I was barely in the Kitchen at 8:07 when Kathy came storming out of the Bedroom thinking she’d slept late.

We had a Muffin for breakfast but took our Hot Drinks for Congestion to the Computers. It seems that these Allergens just don’t want us to have any relief. The entire day there would be no Job Ads issued for my line of work.

I finally was able to get Kathy’s Three Week Follow Up Appointment made at Hearing Life and to get some advice as to why she was getting an echoing effect with her new Hearing Aides. They’ll make further adjustments when she sees them again.

Our Truck pictured from our Apartment.

Next I finally called our Insurance Company about the Truck Break-In but could only leave a voice message. With this Congestion problem I just could not deal with it before. It was 12:30 when we started getting things ready for lunch. Ten Minutes later things were just about warm enough to serve when the Insurance Company called back. They needed to get all the information before telling me I needed to call a different department for the Auto Damage but she would submit my Claim for the stolen Tools. I got the other number and called back later.

Kathy kept lunch under control. The hot Chicken Noodle Soup helped ease our stuffiness.

When I finally spoke to Cindy in the Auto Claims Department. She had me repeat so much of the information that I was reciting our policy number without having to look at it. When she was satisfied that she had everything she then informed me I had Thirty Minutes to get to the Dealership for the Appraisal. Kathy stayed home while I took the Truck in.

The Appraiser said that was stupid telling me to be there that quickly during Rush-Hour since he was on until 5:00. After he took pictures and asked where we purchased the Tonneau Cover. He’ll call back in a week.

I checked our Mail Box at Guardian Storage before driving by the Trailer to be certain everything was good. We now have a Cargo Trailer parked Five Feet from our door.

Since the Fuel Prices were down today I went to the Pioneer gas station to top off on Diesel for $2.086/Litre ($7.895/US Gallon) which was a savings from yesterday’s prices of Fourteen Cents a Litre or Fifty Three Cents a US Gallon.

Surprisingly my parking spot was still available when I got back home.

For supper we had Banana Pancakes with an Apple Sauce Cup for dessert.

The 6 o’clock Local News reported on the upcoming Provincial Election and about the Fuel Prices that are expected to go back up tomorrow.

The Weather Network showed we reached a high of 82 F (28 C) though the Humidex felt like 99F (37 C). Good thing it’s still May.

As soon as the Dishes were cleaned we both took the Car to the Pioneer gas station and topped it off for $1.916/Litre ($7.252/US Gallon).

Again we were surprised to find our parking spot waiting when we got home.
