I was awake off and on from 5 to 6:50 when I finally got up. I was both surprised and pleased that I kept dozing off. I got dressed quietly and slipped out the door at 7 and by the time I got to the clubhouse, I saw Donna coming. We planned that well! It was 53F/13C and no wind at all so a perfect morning to walk. We met only one other walker and he had his coat all done up and gloves on. We Canadians are pretty hardy, I think.

Donna stayed at their unit and put together lasagna for tonight’s supper. I’m still trying to get deep enough into the story of The Runaway Jury so I can pick up easily each time after I put it down. If that makes sense.
The hour I sat reading in complete silence helped,
now I’m hooked enough to want to carry on. Donna said that she has seen the
movie and that it was good. At 10:30 Clemson and I walked over to see Donna and
she was just finishing up inside and had the pan in the oven.

I resumed reading outside and Bill inside while we waited for them to finish and come join us for lunch. I cut bacon, onions, celery, mushrooms and tomatoes in a pan and added eggs for a western when they arrived. Donna looked after the toasted buns for the guys while we opted to have ours in a tortilla wrap. Yum, yum, yum, yum, yum!

|Yum - cheap booze|

At 5 pm I had finished another couple of chapters and curled up behind Bill upstairs. His movie was 10 minutes away from being over so we watched it together and I knew I could probably have a doze myself. When the awnings started flapping in the wind, Bill got up and I replaced him with a pillow and dropped off for 20 minutes. Obviously, I needed it.

It was fun and I’m sad to say that the guys beat the girls 5 to 3. It was certainly a close match of skills, back and forth until the end. We packed up the game and as much as we could of the items they had as we could into Black Beauty. Clemson was so good, once he realized we were there for the evening. He curled up on the couch on my sweater while we played our game.
