I slept well, having gone to bed at 10 about 40 minutes after Bill. I knew he was tired as he kept dropping his book. You can’t read through your eyelids! So, he was up early, 2 hours before me and I got up at, what seems to be my new normal, 7 am on Sunday, May 5th. It doesn’t seem like a Sunday. Maybe that is because he has been away for part of the weekend. I was anxious to get out for a walk and that anxiety lasted all of about 5 minutes while I was getting dressed.
|It was a tad foggy looking down the laneway
|And over the pond
Yup, nope. The fog was thick as pea soup (Daddy’s favourite fog theory) and you truly couldn’t see through it. Hence, his second favourite, fog is black. He always made us laugh and I love the memories of his silliness. Bill was standing at the Keurig with his finger on the button “Are you ready for your tea?” Ha ha, that would be a yes. 😊 He knew I would be disappointed not to get out right away but the bonus was to sit with my hubby over our morning java for the first time in 4 days.
|And behind us to the east
He had pretty much caught up on blogs, answered an email and done some banking before I got up so as I read what our friends are up to, he went out to the Hangar. Today, being the better of the available two (Sunday and Monday) to do our clothes, is laundry day. The fog is discouraging and delayed my drive to Durham to start the wash. I can’t hang them until the promised sun makes an appearance and pushes the fog out. I’m being positive in saying ‘when’ not ‘if’.
|And there it comes
I sorted the clothes on the bed covers under which Clemson is still dreaming in peaceful blissfulness. He doesn’t move. I loaded the basket into Ptooties and took care of doing the wash in 2 machines. I’m not happy with the new owners’ idea of ‘looking after a laundromat’ and I’ll be making a call either later today or tomorrow. What laundromat that you know of doesn’t have Contact information in case something goes wrong? This one.
|Look at that sky now and those shadows!
Back home, Bill carried the basket up the hill to my clothesline and I hung clothes in full sunshine. It was wonderful!! It won’t take them long to dry, I’m sure. I came in long enough to make a coffee and took it outside where I could sit and enjoy the day.
already warming up nicely at 55F/12C and it wasn’t 11 o’clock yet. I had texted Rob and Pat just before leaving
Durham and invited them out to Happy Hour today. They accepted.
|While sitting there I added some twine to the bird feeders
we made at Tres Rios
|Apparently, someone else wanted to socialize with us
but then, maybe not
|Well, hello Mr. Snapper
|And our little trees are budding
|I enjoyed the finches today
|My favourite picture of the day
|When a redwinged blackbird swooped in to the feeder
she dropped and clung to another pole, waiting
|And then returned, waiting for her friends to have their turn
|And they shared
|Supper was great
|I did some spring cleaning in our cupboards
and feel good about getting rid of some unnecessary
|And over the fridge, it is obvious I need more wine
but it is clean and ready for it now
|And another beautiful sunset
|Good night from the Ridge
