On Saturday, Oct. 24th Bill and I took full advantage of a day off. We slept in and didn’t get up until almost 8 o’clock! We were both awake around 6 and then kept dropping back off again. Still dark outside, no rush to move. Once I woke up for good, Bill had dropped off again with his arm on mine so I didn’t want to wake him. I reached my phone and read blogs. 😊
Once we were up and dressed, he made a coffee and had some toast downstairs with Wes and Susan. I got bundled up for the 2C/37F morning and went for a walk. I’ll regret it if I don’t go and let me tell you, after walking near 2 miles, I truly would have been sad to have missed it. I found a new trail along the Saugeen River and followed it as far as I could. Thanks to a young couple walking their dog.
I like this walk but it wasn't long before it veered left to the
Up ahead (see my arrow?) it continued but on the other
side of an arm of the river
That side said "Private Property" so I didn't chance it today
Back home, I was warmed up and made myself a cup of tea. Wes had little ‘home’ jobs to do and Susan as well. We stayed out of each other’s way, which in the big house isn’t hard to do without really trying. Bill cleaned the water tank on our Keurig and I busied myself upstairs emptying boxes. Boy, we had a lot of ‘liquid-type’ stuff from the bathroom! I’m going to work at emptying the half-filled tubes etc. this winter. It is kind of ridiculous. That’s what I get for selling Avon, I guess.
We all met downstairs around noon hour, they were finishing up their lunch while I started cooking bacon and eggs at 12. Then we came upstairs and I set about getting some paperwork done for Mom’s estate. Things are coming together and I’m feeling confident that I won’t be too long getting things settled. At 3, Bill stretched out on the bed and I started my blog post before taking my crossword and book downstairs.
This was a relatively easy day, just hanging around here but at the same time, I got a lot of smaller stuff taken care of. Starting the day off with a nice walk was a bonus. We’ve got some cold nights and cool days coming in the next week and then it will probably stick around. We’re very glad to be somewhere warm without having to pay the propane costs. 😊
Thank you for your visit today!
