As per normal for me, I was at the YMCA/YWCA (Y) when it opened Friday, at 6:30 a.m.
After the pool being shut for close to two (2) months, it has taken me quite a while to work back up to my full capacity of pool exercise. Even though it has been a trial physically, I have finally managed to do it! Thank You, Lord!
Arriving home, I had some work to do and quickly got it done. Then, it was off to helping out our pool committee, here in my apartment building.
Okay, you may be confused. After all, I did say I attend the Y, regularly. Yet, I mentioned I was helping our pool committee.
Just to clarify, yes we have a pool. However, it is an outdoor pool and is only open, seasonally. Usually sometime in May, through mid September.
So, in order to continue with my pool exercise I must work out in another pool. Hence, the pool at the Y!
In any case, I'm glad that Friday was a light day for me, because I had volunteered to sell 50/50 draw tickets in the late afternoon, in the lobby where I live. Profits were to go to our pool fund.
Within a minute or two (2) of arriving back in my apartment, my buzzer rang.
It was the plumber I had called. When I realized I needed someone to do some work for me, I posted on Facebook (FB) on the GM Windsor Retirees page, asking if anyone knew of someone to do plumbing.
After all, when the plant closed, there were many people who were too young to collect retirement benefits. And, since Gordon had worked there, before he retired early due to his health problems, I thought I would support someone from his workplace.
In the past, Gordon always did plumbing and/or electrical work for us. After he died, I had changed washers in my bathroom taps and done some other minor plumbing. However, what I needed done, was more than I could physically handle.
Since I needed a new set of taps installed, I thought I may as well have this man install a new fluidmaster into my toilet. It didn't take long before he left me a happy customer! Praise God!
It never ceases to amaze me how God always seems to provide just what I need, just when I need it. But then, He knows my needs even before I do. Thank You, Father!
Until next time...
