Spring Cleaning (Including my lungs and heart!)

Well, it's been a long winter here in south/central Ontario.  Today I begin cleaning out the garage, getting ready for my semi-annual trip to Barrie's landfill site (or as I call it, "the dump").  Due to our household just getting over some kind of nasty cold/flu thing, I thought I'd wait for the day to warm up a bit before heading outside.  I decided I'd use that time wisely and do a few chores in my office and then I heard the nagging voice of our exercise bike calling me.

"Jamie - when you broke your ankle and had to sit around for six weeks, did I bother you about exercise?  Come on now - it's time... Get over here!"  So, I turned on my Apple Watch exercise app and set to it.  I'll admit it wasn't a very long ride (just over 11 minutes), but I did burn a few calories.

Whatever the cold/flu was, it defied the annual flu shot - has even hit our household for a second round (so far, I am not getting this second round *touching wood as I type*).

It has left me with a bit of a nasal sound that comes and goes and lungs that just haven't quite cleared up yet either.  So, I'm hoping that by starting to exercise today, I can clear myself up - and not just our garage.

Now to tackle that garage - after a short rest... *wink*

Thankful to Anne Penman Laser Therapy

I can't tell you the feeling I get when, not only does a client pay me - and on time, but when they praise the quality of my work.  I had one such case this past week, when I was hired by the Toronto office of Anne Penman Laser Therapy.  They wanted their telephone auto-attendant updated.  It was a straight-forward read - completed within minutes of me sitting down in my studio.

Within minutes of sending my finished work to them (on the understanding they could ask for a 2nd read at no extra cost), I was told how happy they were with it - and that I could call a certain number to check the finished work over the phone - allowing me to hear how I'll sound to their clients.

Hopefully, they will refer me to others who might want this same service performed.  ...Similarly, if you need laser therapy for weight loss, quitting smoking, stress therapy, or other.. Please Google the Toronto office of Anne Penman Laser Therapy.  Though I haven't had to use their services, the communication I've had with their office has been polite, professional, quick to respond and thankful.  I'm thankful too...  Thanks, Simon!
