On Thursday, Oct. 17th, I was up at 7. After turning the fireplace on to warm up the 57F air in the Suite, I waited for a bit of daylight before I drove into town. It was 7:45 by the time I arrived. Brrr, what a cold morning. I could hear and feel the winds rocking our home again in the mid-morning hours of 4 and 5. 27 mph isn’t very fast when you’re driving but when you’re sitting 200’ up on the Ridge, it is substantial enough.
|Took 8 bags of frozen apple slices to Rob and Pat's for the winter|
I gave them permission to use a couple for a pie. :)
It was just after 9 when I was leaving Durham. I’d stopped at Foodland to pick up some of my yogourt, on sale (yay!) and some of the snack bars we like for our road travel. We have some left from last year but haven’t been able to find them in bulk here in Canada. I bought a box of 12 to get us through the first couple of weeks or more. Back home, I had my tea and felt on edge. When I have a day filled with time-sensitive things and travel things, it is hard to settle down.
|I hated to disturb her peaceful sleep|
but she was glad I did!
|She was saying "Ooh, you're hands are cold!"|
|So, we took a second one|
|And just a few pics of my drive|
Varney first, a small town south of Durham
Playground in bottom left corner looks like fun!
|It's too bad they didn't spoil Higgins|
Look at this position of sleep!
|Yup, it's going to be a fun winter|
|Isn't he adorable?|
|Sorry for the blur, I moved too quickly|
this is where G & S are temporarily set up
|It was great to see our good friends for a visit|
Hope you had a great evening!
Back at the house in Tavi we all sat and enjoyed the evening together watching the Mission Impossible movie Fall Out. Higgins gave me some puppy love during the course of the evening, just being plain adorable. We were in bed by 10:30 and had a good sleep in our ‘private’ bedroom downstairs. They have a nice set up down there and we feel very comfortable. This was a busy day and I was sure ready for the sleep. I hope you’ve enjoyed your day as well!
Thank you for the visit today!
