why the long time?

it seems as if my living in ontario blog needs some updates. I am so sorry i haven't updated  lately, its either because im busy or not busy and i havent had alot of time or have forgotten.

Whats new you ask? not much. Im keeping busy and enjoying the end of the year,  as we inch ckoser to the last day of the year. This year isnt gonna be the best for me, i lost my mother 9 months ago. Sure my days are better and happier but any thoughts or her or when i think of times when mom was there i cry.

What i just said isnt new or big, that happens to everyone whos lost someone, wether through an accident or a heart attack etc. Its all matters of the heart that when someone dies, sure you will cry and sure you will have good days after and the thing is youull never stop thinking of him/her in a sense like you and someone else over a loved one dying.

There are times though that catch me off guard, when i see a pic on a computer screen that shows mom and i doing something like hearing the news that i was gonna graduate, a few years ago, still makes me cry, thats not new, we all do. We just dont cry whole heartedly like we did the moment i heard the news.

So that in conclusion is whats going on here in ontario, theres no snow here yet and i dont know when it will come, last year it was 12 degrees and warm and we bbqd from the front deck as we listened to christmas songs, still then mom was with us that time!!

anyways theres an update for this blog

sorry no updates...

i've been busy on other thugs and totally forgot about the blog and thought id update you all on whats been going on!!

After my mom passed (i hope you have all heard that my mom passed away by now) and its been hard but not that hard.. i just had one of those days where it hits you again. I was on dads computer beacause i was flying on my computer...and while chatting on my tablet to someone i looked up and saw a photo of mom on some beach and i teared up...i still beilive that any day after someone dies its very sad but nearly 2 months into  it, ive moved on but still have here in my thoughts once and a while...they'll never go away, but that's a good thing!!

Doing lots of grass cutting here and there, there are areas i cant get to because of mud and the old deck sitting there since last september or so... but i start now with the sold soccer field then move to the orchard and i then go do front yard and then i move to gangway and then im pretty well done. im noticing how the new cutter  has such a wide berth to it compared to the orange and white mower we had. Those cutters were small and took a loger cutting time but this one is huge i inly need like 3 or 4 swaths to cut the soccerfiled etc!! (except for the orchard)

As of this moment im flying for delta in A319 from MTPP to KATL #FS2004

i havent updated where i have been on my flightsim blog so im going to that one shortly..
