On Sunday, Feb. 18th I was, once again, awake earlier than my normal but remained in a comatose state for another 30 minutes. When I looked at the digital clock on the dresser, it was black. Hmm, that’s weird, maybe something is on top of it covering the face. My Fitbit said 5:56 am. Bill got up soon after and lit our heater.
As he crawled back in bed, he told me that it was 54F in the Suite, 48F outside and the power was out in the park. Double hmm. He turned the inverter on and when I looked at the clock again it read 6:30. I knew I would drop off again and he said the same thing. I got up and went for a walk around the park and left my boys in bed. The day started out with mostly clear skies but by the time I returned at 7:30, clouds were back.
As I walked around, I found a few campers in the park trying to figure out if they'd blown fuses or if their electric boxes had died. I told them ours was out at the front, not to worry and by the time I got back to the Suite, power was restored. We were fine regardless.
|And there is the sun, rising along with everyone else|
Bill was up making coffee and my tea and the little lazy bones was still tucked under the covers. We read our friend’s posts and comments and got on with our day. If the sun came out this afternoon we were going to go and visit Deb and Dj. With Dj dealing with a sinus infection and possible cold, we didn’t want to sit indoors at their trailer.
|And the bunnies were out in droves|
I think they're making plans for Easter already
I cut our grapefruit and cooked bacon and scrambled eggs for breakfast. I am trying hard to get us back on track with the paleo/keto habits. It seems to be working, especially for Bill, his weight is dropping slow but sure. Me, up and down, but I’m hopeful to lose this belly before the year is out. We have a wedding to go to!
|Interesting old bus|
What kind of a camper would this make?
Speaking of which, today we heard from the bride-to-be with more details about flights, the resort and what is expected of us. We never thought we would enjoy the idea of a Destination Wedding but we are warming up to the idea. Jess is ‘our’ youngest and if this is her dream, we want to be there for it. Also, the idea of a week-long stay at an all-inclusive resort in Cancun is quite appealing. We’ve never had that kind of vacation.
|Jim, isn't she purty?|
|Sparkling clean probably from the rain :)|
We talked to our brother-in-law, Gerry, back home too about their plans and preparations for a new cottage on their summer property. We discussed it a fair bit with them before and after we left Ontario. We are pleased that things are coming together with that project.
|That is not an apple, it is a cardinal, I think|
|The mountains are so pretty and in the morning, even prettier|
Bill and I took Clemson for a walk around the park around 2 pm and let him run free at the dog park, where he was by himself. Did I say ‘run free’? He moved all of about 3’ sniffing every inch of that area. This dog only runs free at home on The Ridge unlike other dogs who drag their Masters to the Dog Park. “can we go, can we go, huh huh?”

But the birds think it's for them
|making a friend|
Clemson didn't even mind this one
Back home I sat outside for all of 10 minutes watching the sky. I could see the sun coming and when it broke through as we were walking, it was so hot! Finally, for another 10 minutes, I turned my face to the sun and I could feel my body welcoming it…….finally after 5 days! It didn’t last and I returned inside with my sweetie.
|The sun was so hot when it was out|
Breakfast felt like hours ago and I guess it was, so we had a snack of cheese and crackers. Triple hmm, is this why we’re fighting the belly fat? Anyway, it satisfied the craving and it is another 3 hours until supper. Today, I wrote out a few post cards and dropped them in the mailbox for tomorrow. That is an easy inside thing to do.
The day is definitely moving along, slow and quiet. A lot of chapters got read today in both books. I think there might have been a couple of snoozes too while in our recliners. Deb and Riley, be prepared. Recliners are addictive! 😊
For supper tonight we’d decided on pork sausage, dressing, spinach for me and mixed veggies for Bill. Everything turned out great and we were all cleaned up from eating and dishes around 6:45.
|My sunflower goes with us everywhere we go with the Suite|
Bill has gotten original at standing it up for me when the ground is too hard.
Looks like I need to paint it this summer
|another hearty meal|
Bill found a couple of the old Beverly Hills Cop movies with Axel Foley so we watched those tonight. They are funny and good for a laugh. This has been a good day with a bit of sun and a lot of clouds again but the temperatures hovered around 60f, meaning not too bad at all.
Thank you for dropping by. I love to read your comments!
