Up early,had a tough night last night, didn’t get a lot of sleep. Chest pains are coming more often. It has been that chest pain came after too much physical activity causing me to gradually lessen such activity. Now it has reached the point where the pain can come on even while I am completely at rest, even asleep. Thank goodness we have air conditioning in the house. I can’t deal with hot weather espcially if there is humidity thrown in, it affects my breathing.
I read something interesting in the newspaper.Here in Canada the first Monday in August is a holiday. It gives everyone a long weekend from work in the summer which is nice.. Here in Manitoba we call it just a civic holiday. I understand some of the other provinces have a different name for it. irregardless of the name we all enjoy a nice weekend break in the middle of the summer. I had never given it much thought as to the origins of this holiday, why we got the day off.
The newspaper article explained it. It was a holiday originally started in Ontario.Now I even checked this on Wikipedia. The day has historical ties to the abolition of slavery. It is in fact a very special day. I don’t think even most Canadians know that, I didn’t. We have to some how figure out how to appropriately celebrate the day instead of just gladly taking it as a day off work.
