I woke up at a few minutes before 7 on Wednesday, Apr. 18th. It seemed bright out there but alas, just the white clouds in the sky were creating the illumination this morning. At least it was dry, nothing falling from them. 60% chance today of flurries here in London before it moves to the northeast tomorrow. We talk so much about this weather, that for the first time in a long time, I woke up with a positive vibe about spring.
|A walk around the lot again|
Yes, we are still in London
|things are drying up nicely|
Hope it lasts!
|Such a dull day, the clouds never budged here|
Special mention today to our grandson, Connor. He is a teenager today and that is worth celebrating! It is one of those milestone ages and I remember how exciting it was for me to become 13. Happy Birthday, Connor! I'm so glad our birthday card arrived exactly on time!
|Such a cutie........er, handsome young teen!|
I woke up also with the thought that I should finally try and get in and see my doctor. Typical, we, Bill and I, wait so long before doing that. It isn’t anything serious but something that has been nagging at me for a week now. My home ‘cure’ attempts suggested by the Pharmacist on Saturday seemed to be working but…. anyway, if I can get a quick appointment, great. Just long enough to write me a script at least. Fingers crossed, his hours are crazy.
Bill went from doing one orientation on a Momentum Toy Hauler this morning to doing two units today. Since we are here, if they need help, it is nice that they can keep him busy. I wonder if they need help filing? 😊

|20 minutes from The Ridge in Durham|
We’ve been in close contact with my sister, Donna, in Hanover (20 min. west of the Ridge) regarding weather. She sent me pictures yesterday of their front yard. This morning our good friends, Rob and Pat, sent pictures of what they got yesterday. No idea how bad the Ridge is but we’ll touch base Thursday night or Friday morning. Jello plans may jiggle.

I made myself another tea and had a banana with some yogourt while listening to my tunes and waiting for the dr. office to open. I’m not expecting miracles today, he is only there for an hour and at the hospital the rest of the day. Clemson can’t decide where he wants to settle today. Perhaps he has that restless, let’s move, feeling too. He has been up on the bed 5 times and our chairs just as many. We always think that he is looking for clothes on the bed OR sunshine.
I spent the rest of my day with some reading, some walks with Clemson and a walk into the CanAm office/store with some chocolate macaroons. It was just around lunch time so my cookies were appreciated for dessert. I wanted to tell Bill that my doctor’s office called back and he is such a nice guy that he is calling in a brand new prescription for me without even seeing me! Awesome! That is one of the reasons we want to keep our home physician for now.
With a long afternoon ahead of me, Clemson and I chose a movie to watch again. One that I’ve never seen before yet was inclined to buy it at a garage sale. If you get the chance to see Charlie Wilson’s War with Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts (and numerous others we like), I recommend it. It is based on a true story. So, when that finished, Clemson had fallen asleep on my lap and I watched the time slip past my tea time aka Happy Hour.
Bill returned from his day’s work at 4:30 and that was when the pooch jumped off my chair. I got up and made a tea after taking him out for another quick jaunt. We are trying to decide if we ‘like’ the new program called “Harry”. Harry Connick Jr. is following in the footsteps of Oprah and Ellen and many I can’t think of right now. We enjoy some of the guests but it is too premature to decide whether I can stick with watching it. I don’t like the bands that they have, to me they aren’t necessary.
|Supper was good and I might even have room for some ice cream later|
At 6, I cut up a potato for fries and coated 2 pollock fillets. Today was the day to try deep frying the fish in our fryer instead of a fry pan. Actually, supper turned out quite well and we will do that again. Other than 3 or 4 fries, I stuck to my salad as my side dish. We cleaned up the dishes and Bill will finish off the last of the rice pudding tonight. This has been another quiet day but I’ve enjoyed the movie and music time I’ve had. I hope yours has been a good one too.
Thank you for stopping by today! I love to hear from you and will respond to every post in time.
