Over the week, I managed to catch up with my chores somewhat. I trimmed my mother's hedges. I broke down dead branches in her backyard and placed them in large paper pages.
At home, I did work on our back lawn by putting top soil, fertilizer and grass seed on the burnt areas. I also weeded our garden, ironed shirts and drove my step son to work everyday. My wife, Irene, usually does this but I gave her a break so she could sleep in a few extra hours before going to work.
I still have two and a half weeks of vacation left. I spread it out over the year.
Irene and I plan to go the Canadian National Exhibition tomorrow as well as the Chinese Lantern Festival at Ontario Place. There's always lots to do in Toronto. Check it out:
