 so we hit the bridge right at 4 PM and as you can see we were locked out while she swung. 

 

I was remembering the bridge no longer swung.  Did they fix it?

 Not sure what the story is but apparently it worked today else we would still be on the other side of it.

 Not the most exciting meal but when you’ve been driving since 8 AM almost anything is good.   Rotisserie chicken, coleslaw and potato wedges.  We will aim higher.

I fixed the nice clean counters - also the nice clean floor with a torn milk bag.

Furniture is looking familiar - they moved all the furniture from the old place to here - I was looking forward to sleeping on a brand new bed - appears it's not to be.

Nice kitchen. Do you get a lockup/closet for future visits? 

So “they” are maintaining a place for you, and other rotating docs. If I remember correctly, it seemed “they” were not going be providing that amenity going forward?

Sadly no - this is a year to year unit. When the owners sell their property out at Freer Point they will move into town and we will be back where we started. So it's everything back into boxes 6 weeks from now.

One of the first boxes I opened contained the CSO and 6 silicone ice cube trays - production is underway!

Woke early (5:30) to a misty morning. It is 16°C with a forecast high of 22° and sunshine all day.

Kerry is still sleeping and Kira spent the night with her favourite caregiver. 

 

Kerry has to be at work by 8 am and should get off by 6pm. This is a new emergency shift this year. In previous years all emergency room shifts were 24 hours. On the bright side — more cocktail time for Kerry. 

 

Might be a boring day for posting as we slowly unpack and make the kitchen useable. But stay tuned. You just never know.

This new apartment looks awesome!

I would spend all my time on that rocking chair. I always say I need to buy one, but then I remember it would be my ruin.

If it belonged to either one of us we would happily ship it to you in exchange for a  recliner  (the one from the old unit seems to have disappeared) or if you’re really desperate Kerry said she’d accept a dough sheeter in exchange.😂

Kerry’s finest  impersonation of? I want to assure all of you she does not yet need the walker  although after unpacking the van yesterday she came very close.  

 

 A nice surprise for me. Among the cheeses that Kerry found that warranted 250% duty was this lovely smoky blue.

Bread choices are limited at the moment but I had a little of it on a slice of toasted 12 grain. 2FF38471-E839-47A0-BF2B-3ECF2E5DB1A1.thumb.jpeg.e31dc8f714ab2bb450fd363ab524e8b6.jpegIt may look as if I am being parsimonious with the cheese but it is so flavourful that you don’t need much.  It was delicious.

What you lose on the swings you gain on the roundabouts. At least that’s the way that Kerry seems to look at it. She has never before been stopped when bringing groceries across the border and she’s done it for many, many years.  So duty free cheese for years and years.

I've had that smoked blue cheese and agree with you Anna, it is quite delicious. Will have to pick some up when I finish my current bits of blue cheese.

First grocery shopping.  Sorry I took the photograph into the light. What you might not recognize there are tiny potatoes and scallions.

 Bad photograph but that is enough all purpose flour to make a few bits and pieces.

 Kerry was reading my mind because I really really wanted some Lays sour cream and onion potato chips wasn’t going to ask for them. Think you can see everything else in this photograph.
