I wound up the day with a Randonneurs Ontario conference call that lasted less than an hour. Hooray ! However, I ended up with "to do's" from the meeting - reprinting brochures and business cards in advance of the Toronto Bike Show. I use Vistaprint for that.
16 quarts later ... yeah ... I changed the oil and filter in both cars. The X5 was giving me warnings that I only had 340 miles left (and counting down) before needing an oil change ... right. The M5 had tripped its counter long ago, but that's because I had not reset it last year. Now they're both "in the green". Now I've got used oil to take to Advance ...
Sandy did a stir-fry with the leftovers from the pork chops the night before ... always good.
Jason, Lorraine & Kim leave the GWN today heading for Florida. We'll see them tomorrow.
Sandy had Jessica over, exercising in our "upstairs gym". Noah, Jessica's son, loves the change in scenery. The next baby is due mid-March ... hopefully he (yes, gender confirmed) will be as good a baby !
Cold and windy prevailed, so I didn't go out on the bike. Today I will go.
I'd submitted my OAS application in September, figuring that would be plenty of time as my birthday was in December and I wouldn't be paid anything until end of January. Wrong. I hadn't seen anything or heard anything, so I called. Yup, they have my application. 32 weeks minimum and 15 months max to process, if "international ops" has to get involved.I guess that we'll have to eat some of Cassie's food while we're waiting ...
