When I woke up at 6:30 on Wednesday, Oct. 3rd, it was because Clemson needed out and Bill was getting up to take care of him. Another dull looking day out there confirmed when Bill crawled back on top of the covers to wait for the Suite to warm up downstairs. The heater had been on through the night but very low so he cranked it up a notch. Clemson is no dummy and jumped up right after Bill lay down and curled up behind him. He wanted to wait for downstairs heat too.

due to construction
The Richards family got up 30 minutes later and made tea and coffee to get engines started. We read a few blogs and then I hopped in the shower while Bill drained the gray water tank. When I was finished in the bathroom, he did the same.
We left the Suite about 9:15 and
drove into Owen Sound to meet with Shannon (yay, Shannon!) regarding Mom’s
investments. No better feeling, after what I’ve dealt with, than to walk in to
her office with Mom’s paperwork sitting on her desk.

|Yes! Let's get this done!|
|Been a while since we've been to one|

|Holy cow, that is sunshine!|
Clemson drove Bill crazy for his supper at 4 so we put him off until 4:30 and then fed him. My goodness, you’d think he hadn’t eaten for days the way he was pestering. After he ate and went out, I went for a walk down the lane. I’m glad I did because the 55F felt quite nice with an adequate jacket on. The wind was strong and I had to fight with it to hang the two ‘garden’ sheets on the line. I won the battle and they will blow dry until I need them again.
At 5 we got ready for dinner. We were
meeting my sisters, Gayle and Donna and their hubbies at the Clubhouse
Restaurant, south on Hwy 6. This is to celebrate our birthdays which were last
It is what the 6 of us do together and usually a nice evening out. We were all very prompt
and arrived literally within 5 minutes of each other at 5:55. It is a
restaurant connected with the Golf Course and the front seating area consisted
of about 9 tables so we found one for 6. There was also another room in the back for more diners.
|I think I'll need these sheets for the garden again so want them dry to begin with|
|so much rain that the west pond actually has water in it again|
|And most of the summer, this stream to our neighbours has been dried up|
|No turtles on the tree branch today but a week or so ago, there was no|
pond water here either
The menu had many choices and we easily chose our meals. The prices were also pleasing. Bill ordered Fish (cod) and fries and I ordered a Chicken quesadilla with a side Caesar salad. The quesadilla was the most stuffed one I’ve ever had and it was yummy.
We had an enjoyable
time together and topped our dinner off with Cheesecake. We would definitely go
back another time. We said our goodbyes around 7:30 and it was a mild 14C/58F.
Back home we watched some tv and at
10 I crawled into bed with Clemson. We got a few things taken care of today and
went to bed hoping for some drier weather in the days to come to complete
more outside jobs.
I hope you’ve enjoyed your day. Thank you for stopping by!
