24 Oct 2023: Condolences to Cousins
Sat: staying less active after the effects to both the flu&PPSV23 shots. Certainly feel that age takes its toll, the mind says that I can, but the body shows&tells otherwise – time to really listen attentively to the body now. Do enjoy catching up with audio books and especially after the PEI-Hike, Anne Of Green Gables – by LucyMaudMontgomery, can relate more now after having been there.
Mon21Aug2023: GreenGablesHeritage – a 19th century farm and literary landmark in Cavendish and served as the setting for the Anne of GreenGables novels by LucyMaudMontgomery who put PEI on the map. She found great comfort, peace, and inspiration in PEI’s natural beauty. Her journals and novels are filled with detailed, loving descriptions of the Island’s forests and shores. When world events or personal challenges troubled her, a walk in the woods and fields around Cavendish restored her spirits. Her sense of belonging to the land of her Island home endured after she moved to Ontario. She visited PEI as often as she could, reveling in the Island’s uplifting beauty.
This evening I went for a walk -all alone but not a lonely one. I am sometimes lonely in the house or when walking with uncongenial company but I have never known a moment’s loneliness in the woods and fields. I have rich, rare, good company there.
Sun: welcome Annie&Andrew back here and tkx to nieces,nephew&grandnephews for dinner@18Seafood食霸海鲜UniqueZiCharDishes/SerangoonCoffeeshop,2LorongLewLian,#01-56. Unfortunately, not a good experience to be there in the weekend as the service was so appalling giving a bias mood for the food.
RoastedChicken with GlutinousRice糯米雞is the only dish I might consider returning for,but never on the weekends. OK HarCheongGai
Mon: at the airport for a cuppa to catch up with Kat who is here for a couple of days for her mom’s surgery and now off again. For me it is a shorter distance to get to the airport than to the central of town – bus36 takes~20mins practically from door-door. Taking the same bus opp direction to head towards town to Rochalie takes~nearly an hour+10mins walk to the house.
Or you can smile because she has lived
You can close your eyes and pray that she will come back
Or you can open your eyes and see all that she has left
Your heart can be empty because you can’t see her
Or you can be full of the love that you shared – David Harkins
