I was up and out the door at a few minutes past 6 on Thursday, Aug. 8th. The laundromat called me to duty. However, when I arrived, both doors were locked (as they should be) and my key only works in the back door. Usually. Someone (with nothing better to do) stuck some wood in the keyhole to gain entry and now my key won’t fit in. I did what I could to clean it out but to no avail so I turned around and drove home.
|And I thought this would make a lovely|
I was right
When I’d finished my morning tea, I drove back in at 7:30 knowing that the automatic unlocking would have happened. One couple was doing their laundry so I cleaned around them, everything but damp mopping. The floors didn’t need it today. I fiddled with the lock again but without the door locked, I couldn’t really test it. Alas, I left it and would contact Jamie later. I stopped at Foodland for a few groceries and then Home Hardware to pick up cleaning supplies on Jamie’s tab and some fly strips.
|After I was back home, this is what we dealt with for a couple of hours|
this morning but really hardly any rain
Home again home again jiggity jig, I missed seeing ‘Elvis’s’ vehicle so drove on by. We owe him for the screen tent we brought home yesterday. I’ll go back today. He had appointments so will be sure to catch him at one point. It won’t be a day to put the tent up, with rain off and on and winds gusting up to 20 mph so we’ll do it tomorrow. I made Bill bacon and eggs and fried up my leftover egg quesadilla. Gosh, I love these and I drank my b.p. coffee with it.
|Threatening looking but the bark was worse than the bite|
Finally, I was able to get to my blog post from yesterday. Sorry, I’m so bad!! Patrick indicated that their Avon order arrived at their house yesterday so I made a note to pay Avon. He’d already sent me the $. Then, I went outside and filled the suet feeder as well as the other two on the property. I need to buy a new feeder to replace a damaged one that I’ve had for years. Now time to work on the puzzle.
|After happy hour, the chairs were all that was left|
while supper took place
With the rain off and on, I watched George, Suzie and Kim move in and out of their units. Comical really from my view inside the Bunky. Finally, there was more sun than clouds and when Pat and Rob arrived to join us at 1:30, we settled into two groups and chatted the afternoon away. Bill joined the boys and Suzie and then at 3 he announced Happy Hour! Before sitting with the group, Bill and I drove over to Elvis’s place to pay him for the screen tent from yesterday and then joined the rest.
|My garden is thriving!|
|The covered plant is my watermelon and they are growing well|

One happy family
|Gravel trucks were busy on our roads this afternoon|
|And a pond picture for you|
The sky was clear blue and the sun glorious. The wind seems to have died so my walk extended to the end of the lane and down to see Don cutting his grass. My front garden along the fence was overgrown with weeds so I had to stop and pull as many as I could without gloves. George walked down too and we walked back up together. I’m afraid of falling asleep if I sit for too long. These two early mornings of go-go are hitting me.
|And Don cutting his front lawn|
It is so good to look out and see all of our friends here. Well, not ALL of them, but many of our Rock Glen group are here for the next few days.
|And that tiny figure back there by our mailbox is George|
