Another Assistance Day and An Early Night

Wednesday, May 31st came and went in a flurry. The fact that I tired myself out two days in a row is my explanation for two posts in one. I was in bed by 10:30 Tuesday night but when 7 o’clock rolled around and then 7:30 I still didn’t feel I was ready to get up. That is what a good day of ‘work’ does to me when I’m not used to it.

Bill was still snuggled under the covers at 8:30 am when I kissed him goodbye and left for Durham. I wanted to get to Tim Horton’s before arriving at Rob and Pat’s. An inside joke but it was also Camp Day and buying a couple of coffees supported a good cause. I arrived before 9 with drinks and muffins in hand, buttering up the boss.
Cloudy start up today as I head into town
I know Bill wanted to replace the part on his riding mower to stop the oil leak and he wouldn’t be needing my help. I didn’t feel it was necessary to stick around. I had a good day again with our friends. I wish I could do more for them, I can see clearing this house out is taking its toll on Pat. Shortly after noon Bill arrived to help and we made great strides today.

The two men worked in the garage and storage areas while Pat and I emptied more cupboards and closets. So much stuff and so little place to put it in. We had a nice lunch after Bill came and worked steady until 3 o’clock. We were all winding down so it was a good time to call it a day.

Not surprisingly we both came home, hit the soft contours of a recliner and a sofa and dozed. I hope Rob and Pat did the same thing. I had hamburger out for supper without any clue what to make with it. The nice thing about hamburger, I can always come up with something edible in a pinch.
As I was preparing supper, this beautiful horse trotted down the road
I made a casserole. Not fancy, I just added onions, mushrooms, beans and tomato soup to the cooked meat and topped it off with a biscuit topping before baking it in the convection oven. Tasty and hit the spot.

That’s it, it was an early night for me and Bill wasn’t too far behind. We were heading into London Thursday morning by 8:30. The weather today was pretty good, although cooler than Tuesday. I think it only got to 17C and not full sun.


I hope your day was a good one. Thanks for reading, sorry for the lack of pictures today.

  2. Sounds like another productive day, cleaning out an estate is endless work, We have done 2 parents places in the last few years and seems like it will never end. I wish them luck and so nice that you can be around to give them a hand. Enjoy the drive to London and visit today.

    1. Thankyou. I'm not much for their strong coffee or donuts but enjoy steeped tea with cream, carrot cake muffins (Oh my!) And their breakfast wraps.
