I am a few hours into my Newfoundland trip and I already have a brand new, used pair of shoes. I lucked out because our neighbour bought two pairs of sneakers and one was accidentally a size too big for her. I am delighted because she charged me $6 and they fit me perfectly and have only been worn half a minute by her. And, as you all know, and shoes are the yucky-est thing to buy used, so this works very well for me.
I was the first one out in tonight's card game. We gamble a lot as a family. We each put in $5 for the cards, so the pot is $45, but no one was having mercy on me although I just got home, since I just won $800 off them. We had fresh fish (cod + cod tongues) for dinner and did some golfing in the garden. We practiced chipping into a kind of of target basket and I got 2 balls in the basket. I was so thrilled with myself. I haven't golfed in about 18 years, and this is a new family thing for us.
Tomorrow, we'll be hiking the hill, trying out my stepmother's new walk-run routine, and getting some fresh salmon going for dinner. Yay.
