On Friday, June 9th I woke up shortly after 6 to see brightness peeking through the living room blinds. Yay! I don’t know why but I enjoy waking up (period) but mostly after a what seems like ‘long’ evening without Bill. It means this is the day he comes home.
|Clemson found the sunny spot|
I did my morning chores, Clemson’s nature call and fresh water, making the bed, turning the portable panel towards the sun before I contacted Bill to tell him we were up. We usually turn the panel at night and I had done that already.

How ever did I miss him?
At 9 I headed into Durham to lend a hand once more at Aunt Mary’s house. With the sale tomorrow, there are a few things I might be able to help get ready and there are signs to be hung. I think I’ll work this morning and into the early afternoon but plan to be back home around 3 if possible.
When I left, I stopped along the way home on Hwy 4 and hung 4 signs just inside the town limits. Pat and Rob will hang more tonight to catch people from the other directions. The clouds moved in early afternoon, while Pat and I were sorting through Christmas decorations. I’ve never seen so many and it obviously distracted me from the sky.
I’m thinking he was going to drive to Stratford and stop in to see his Dad since we missed them the last time we were through. That gives me a good idea when to expect him depending on how long a visit. I’ve asked my sister, Donna, to pick up a couple of loaves of bread at The Bread Depot in Hanover. Since they will be at the Acreage, it is closer to get it from her. 5 minutes versus 20 minutes makes sense.

|Wasn't afraid of me at least|
They were just finishing supper and Mike hadn’t arrived yet. The bugs are still crazy over there, they seem to like me. Either I smell good or bad, hmmm. Donna started a fire up at the front area of their property and we sat for a few minutes. Within minutes of me leaving, Mike drove in.

I was home by 8:15. Sure enough, another ‘yert’ was digging a hole along the lane. As I slowed to snap a picture, out from under the truck came another one, scampering across! How did I miss him? LOL you wouldn’t want to know me if I ran over one. That would break me.
First things first, our little hairy pooch needed a bum bath. I’m sorry, but that is exactly the nature of it. Sometimes he has difficulty in that area and let’s just say the view from the cheap seats isn’t pleasant. Not his fault, and he sure feels better after a tubby tub in the sink.
|How does your garden grow?|
After he was cleaned up, we took a walk down the lane to the mailbox. I knew the flyers would be there but have a feeling they were there as early as Wednesday. She doesn’t always put the flag up when it is just flyers so you never know! It is a lovely evening u here on The Ridge. I don’t have the bugs and right now there isn’t a titch of a breeze. 19C and only going down to 14C I think tonight.
Just watching my little Corolla turn into the driveway now and it is 8:48. Happy Face! So that is it for me. I hope you have had a nice day today and a little more sun than we did. Better still tomorrow.
|Pretty sky tonight again|
|And we say goodnight from The Ridge|
