We’re getting there. Madame Padre and I have been in the house for a few weeks now. 90% of the boxes are unpacked. Some of the paintings and family photos are hung. Some new furniture arrives on Friday. Madame Padre has her favourite bench swing set up in the backyard and appears to be enjoying it.
Luigi has been helping unpack boxes.
The wargames room had one wall that was an odd shade of lime green, like a sickly sherbet. I had some tan paint left over from an upstairs room, just enough to cover it. I guess you could say this is my first hobby painting in the new house.
Tonight I found the fun paints. Looking forward to using them again.
I’ve had a week to get used to my new job. The view out of my window is nice. I’m in the old base high school that has been repurposed for several units, including the Canadian Forces Chaplain School. My position requires me to be bilingual (French and English) so I have some time to brush up my rusty French before les etudiants arrive.
Most importantly, Madame Padre and I had our first meeting with her oncologist today. We liked him a lot. As he put it, the surgery got out all the visible “junk”, and now the task is to get rid of all the microscopic junk. To do that, Mdme. will be starting chemotherapy in a week and she is planning to tackle it head on, as she does everything. I’m very proud of her. Thanks for all your kind wishes and support, they’re much appreciated.
Onwards ad upwards.
Cheers and blessings,
