I found my thrill, on Blueberry hill

Ohhh this was so delicious. I used some of the blueberries that I picked last weekend. Kind of hard to loose the 10 lbs I had planned on losing this summer when I keep eating yummy, sweet treats like this. Don't ya think.
Yup it was good. Kristy is at a sleepover tonight. Ashley doesn't like pie. So it is just Hubby, Heather and I. Humm cut a pie in thirds. Ohhhh I like the sounds of that. Because if you really think about it, pie isn't as good the next day, the crust gets soggy.
So Ya I am off to get another piece :) As I watch Gran Torino...Love this movie.

Today I finished off my book work. I just have to envelope and mail the bills. Ohhh it feels so good to balance month end.
I took Kristy to the movie theatre to watch a movie with her boy/friend.
Ashley, Heather and I went to the Mission Marsh Conservation Area, as they wanted to take some photos.

One other thing happened today, it scared me. My dad had a doctor's appointment today in the later afternoon. I got there early as he told me he had a small fall in the bedroom. He got tangled in his oxygen tube.
Well I helped him get ready and we started to head down the hallway. He has been slowing down lately, so this didn't surprise me. Then we get to the stairs and I noticed his breathing was getting loud. I told him to sit on his walker seat to catch his breath. He didn't.
He got about 1/2 way down the stairs and just sat..plunk. I noticed that his lips were purple. Of course I got concerned and told him I was taking him to the hospital instead.
He refused and slowly went back to his apartment.
So I stayed with him for a few hours. Cleaned his apartment and made him some meals and put them in the fridge.
He slept most of the time I was there. But his breathing slowed and his colouring came back.
Boy he is a stubborn ol' man.
I have phoned him a few times and went to see him tonight and its like nothing happened.

Makes you think, I'll tell you.

Take care and I hope you had a good Thursday.
