I woke up around 7 this morning, Sunday, Sept. 24th feeling refreshed and surprised that Clemson and I were alone in bed. I never heard my sweetie get up at all. Another perfect day is coming our way so I must get up and enjoy it! I sat with my tea and finished my post from yesterday. Once done, Bill and I went for a walk before the heat and humidity became too much.

We wandered across Baptist Church Road so I could show Bill the foundation of the house on North Line. He is always interested in that stuff and can easily describe what openings are for where I am useless. I can’t picture the big picture if you get my drift. I would never be an active participant in the building of a home, not one to be present through every process. The designing, yes, and once the drywall is up then bring me in to help make further choices.
This place looked at first to be a big home but when Bill pointed out the double garage opening, it will be just a nice size at floor level anyway. There was a lot of water in the ‘basement’ level so that will be a deterrent until it dries up but the tresses and dormars are ready and waiting for their turn to be utilized. Bill is always surprised how soon these pieces are dropped off and left sitting before they are actually used.
When we returned from our walk Bill put the water bladder in the back of the truck and went to the Acreage to get more water. Donna and Gerry are there, actually have spent much of the weekend there for the first time in a long time. The weather makes that an easier decision, I’m sure. I killed a few more pesky ‘devils’ inside and then swept through the Suite. Then I closed windows and lowered the a/c temperature. It was already 26C inside.
With the bladder emptying into our tank, we had another cup of coffee and tea. This one was had outside in the shade. There won’t be much sun sitting today. Inside, I had some bananas and raspberries to use up so since we were plugged in anyway, for the a/c, I pulled out my blender. Time for a smoothie! Adding the fruit, milk, cream and ground flax seed I hit the ‘Smoothie’ button. I love these and since I only make them once every two weeks or so, it is like a treat for me.

At noon, I made us each up a stacked pastrami, ham, salami, cheese, lettuce, tomato and mayo sandwich on a bun. It was quite filling and as much as we’re trying to avoid the bread, it hit the spot on a hot day. Hot days for me mean ‘simple meals and as little cooking as possible’. Luckily, my man agrees.

I hope you have enjoyed this day. We can’t do much about the weather and because I complain about the cool and wet, you will NOT hear me complain about the hot and dry. It is what I've been waiting for.
