It was already raining on Saturday, Apr. 14th when we woke up just before 7 and quite windy. Oh goody, making out to be a wonderful day! Ha ha. You gotta laugh about it and just make the best of it. Bill had planned to drive to White Oaks Mall to the RC (radio controlled) Static Display of RC planes. Many members of Bill’s flying club, The Forest City Flyers, would be in attendance with their models.
I was going to stay home but this morning I woke up with the decision that I would go along if he wasn’t going to be all day. After a tea and reading some comments, I showered and we left together around 9. It was already nasty out there but I didn’t want to wear a heavy winter coat to wear while I was wondering around. I opted for my winter attire, a layered hoody with my wind breaker and a light scarf.
|This is the kind of day it was|
Bill caught Clemson in a deep snooze on top of my blanket
How can this be comfortable?
We met up with Jack and Mary, Gary, Tom, Bob (and Judy later) and then I left the boys to their stuff. I had a few places I wanted to stop at and once stores opened at 9:30 I popped into a few. I picked up a new washable cotton mat for the Suite, just something with colour to spruce things up a bit. I also picked up a spring/summer cotton garden hat with netting that comes down over my head. I’ve wanted one since encountering the black flies and skitters last May.
We needed to pick up a birthday card for a special someone so I found a card shop for that and then into Walmart for printer paper and a couple of food items. By this time, I was carting around 2 heavyish bags and the heat in the mall was getting to me. After 2 ½ hours, I headed back to where Bill was and he was ready to head out too. Unfortunately, he had the camera and never took any pictures so I have nothing to show for the morning.

The mats in our Suite are more for Clemson than for us
He does not like walking on hard floors
We drove back to the Suite and I had some of my soup for lunch while Bill made a toasted cheese and p.b. sandwich. On our trip here from Ohio, the container I had in the fridge with beer margarita in it was too full to travel. Apparently. So, I had a sticky mess to clean up and removed the main shelf to give it a good washing.
Once we get home, the whole fridge will get emptied and it will get a ‘spring’ cleaning. I would dread this project when we had our smaller fridge in the house but things just don’t sit in this fridge for very long and it is an easy process. Plus, being higher up off the ground (freezer below) makes it a much easier task than having to be on my hands and knees to do it.
|Supper was delicious! I coated the boneless chops and baked them|
in the convection oven for 30 minutes.
They were perfect and I actually really enjoyed it
After dishes, Clemson was begging for someone to sit with him so Bill accepted the challenge and promptly fell asleep. The wind is whipping around like crazy and the only reason I will venture out in it is to take Clem out. We’ll take turns. I poured myself another cup of tea and set about adding some more stitches to my project.
