On Monday, July 3rd I was up early and making my tea before 7. The sky was blue at 5:30 when Bill let Clemson out but the sky was overcast and soon low-lying fog skirted the horizon. Big surprise? Not really and although disappointed, it was supposed to improve. It is only 12C again which isn’t too warm for a start up.

It was looking like a beautiful day and I was outside to enjoy it as early as possible. I read my book for a bit sitting on the patio. I was in the throes of the last few chapters and wasn’t moving until I finished.
|We've seen this brown bird around here a fair bit|
some kind of thrush?
|Furry Gnome named this blue flower in his post|
I didn't know what it was called so ran out and took a picture
Blueweed - an easy name for me to remember although it is too pretty
to be a weed!
We both ordered the Country Breakfast Special. What a lot of food you get for $7.99, coffee/tea included. I had 2 eggs, ham, toast and jewels. Bill opted for sausages and coin fries. I brought half my jewels home. We didn’t get out of there until closer to 1 pm.
|It is so hard to trim weeds around some plants with a gas trimmer so I did the job by hand|
Much better results
We drove to Varney to the West Grey Meat Market. It was time to put some meat in our freezer. While I was looking in the freezer Bill noticed a freezer pack with quite a selection of exactly what we were looking at a great price. Steak, hamburgers, sausages and ground beef. Perfect!
|Time to relax and enjoy the sun|
|Not sure what Chippy is chewing on, but it isn't my peanuts|
|New location for the rose bush|
Trying to get into a new story is a bit of a challenge so soon after finishing one. It takes a minute to get the old characters out of your head as you welcome new ones. I succeeded with David Baldacci’s The Collectors and Bill seemed to have success with Tami Hoag’s Guilty Sin.
Rob was hooking up his utility trailer with the big tub of mint and wondered if they could bring it out. What a nice surprise and it was great to see them. Clemson was happy to see them and ran to meet Rob as he exited the truck before running around to greet Pat. Bill and Rob transferred the bin to our little trailer but it slid right out as Bill drove up the hill to where we wanted it.
Hmm, I guess Patsy’s idea of hooking the tub to a tow strap and the back of the riding mower wasn’t a bad one after all. It slid along behind quite nicely and the three of us got it into place. I don’t have to replant them if I don’t want to but if I do, I can easily dig them up and repot. There are tons in here! Holy cow! Thank you, Bill and Sandra, they will keep the area smelling great.
Rob is still feeling rough with this nasty cold that has hit their household. We all know it is from being drained from stress and wish him well. They left after a nice visit for a while and Bill and I had a quick bite to eat. We weren’t too hungry so our dinner isn’t worth mentioning.
|Clemson found his spot|
Notice the paw of control
|Good night Mr. Sunshine, you gave us a wonderful day|
Thank you for reading. If you wish to comment, that would be nice.
