|Me and Joshua, Montreal, March, 2013|
With what seems like ages since we returned from Montreal to celebrate with Phil his 28th birthday on the 11th of March I can announce the completion of the mezzanine ceiling. Overcoming our fear of heights was the biggest challenge here as both Marie and I had to work overhead with the thought of plunging down to the cement floor on the main level always foremost in our mind. We ended up installing three Pyle 6 inch 200 w speakers, a Kidde direct wire smoke and CO alarm, an EnGenius repeater, two Bazz LED pot lights over the shower area, an outlet over the bed for a suspended light and one over the bathtub.
As well we are both still under the weather, so much so that we finally broke down last Thursday and spent the morning at the hospital in Lac Megantic getting chest xrays and being prescribed some antibiotics for bronchitis. I have been feeling lousy for over a month now and still not 100%. I think what we need is some sunshine so have booked a flight to Florida in the middle of May.

On the home-front Lara and little Joshua are both doing well and it was a real pleasure to see them again when we were in the city, dropping off a MamaRoo for Joshua. It is a nifty bouncer that moves up and down and side to side, just like a real mother. Programmed into the seat are 5 movement modes - car ride, kangaroo, tree swing, rocka bye and ocean. Plus it comes with built in nature sounds or it can be hooked up to an MP3 player. Doris had come up for a few weeks to stay with Lara and it was nice to see her again after so many years. She hadn't changed much and still has that real Nova Scotia accent. Amy stated walking when we were there and is still as darling as ever!

We will be going back to Montreal for Easter and later in April I will be going out to see Richard for a few days in Georgetown. But in the meantime we have to continue our work here - Marie running wiring and me staining, cutting and nailing the rest of the pine paneling for the remainder of the ceilings. And before I forget - happy SPRING! gws
