We were ‘lazzzy’ Sunday, Sept. 27th and didn’t crawl out of bed until 7:30ish. It was/is the only day when neither of us had to get up early for something. Our only time frame was a 10 am departure. I could have gone for my walk but even though warm and it would have been enjoyable, I decided to have a tea instead. My blog was late so I wanted to finish it and have a shower too. Maybe later today.
|There were obviously classic car shows or drives today|
This 57 Chevy was only one of the classics we saw on our drive
It was disappointing to me and my own fault that I lost my pictures that I took yesterday but duh, don’t we kick ourselves! I scrambled and retook some, as you saw, and downloaded others. My post is dull enough let alone having no pictures. Hope you got a kick out of my purchases at least! So, for today, I’ll try not to lose any that I take. It was a quiet morning. I showered and Bill got washed up and had a bowl of cereal.
At 10 am we hopped in Ptooties and drove the hour to Paisley. We were scheduled to meet with Wes and Susan (our winter hosts) for another walk through the house and to decide on what to bring. We got things figured out and we were happy to be told that they were purchasing an upright fridge for us. That is the one thing I have been stressed about, what to do with the partial jars, condiments etc. etc. in our fridge. We are both very relieved and it also a relief for Susan too. She doesn’t have to share her fridge either.
They had planned on us staying for lunch and it was very nice to have a first meal with them. It was 2 hours later when we said goodbye. I guess you could say that we get along very well.

Bill drove home and in Durham we stopped at Rob and Pat’s to deliver something Bill picked up for them at CanAm. Then one more stop at IDA Pharmacy and home. We both felt tired and I know that my excuse is not having a great sleep last night. My fault, I’d taken a mug of tea to the fire.
We rested in our chairs and then half hour later we both went out and started packing some things away. Bill managed to get the free lawn mower he got from a customer started. Bonus! I worked on the garden stuff and Bill worked in the shed, organizing things for winter storage. We got quite a bit done in the couple of hours we worked, leaving less to do over the next couple of weeks. It isn’t that far away and time will go quickly.
Inside, I put together a hamburger stew with dumplings, cooked on the stove and it was delicious. We got caught up in a couple of 80’s movies, Uncle Buck and Bodyguard but managed to get dishes done somewhere in there. The evening was quiet and I didn’t stay up too late. I have two jobs in the morning so will want to get a good sleep. This would be our last ‘warm’ night before temperatures drop off for another week.
Thank you for stopping by!
