So, Friday, May 31st (end of the month already?) Bill was awake and up at 6:30. I rolled over for another half hour, not having to get up until I was really ready. When I opened my blind, I smiled. Sunshine. It just does something to me, seeing the sun after such a long absence. I don’t think I’m alone with these feelings and although we shouldn’t let our ‘moods’ be governed by the weather, it does affect most of us.

|The sun started hazy like this and remained this way all day|
`My weed eater is a light weight but today I found it a difficult/tiring chore so didn’t do as much as I’d hoped before putting it away. I don’t trust myself around my newly planted flowers so left it at that. Seems everywhere I went, Chippy #1 or #2 was there. He is so adorable and just sits and looks at me. I came inside and motioned to Bill, who had moved back to this area, that I was starting breakfast. It was 9:30 and I knew he’d be soon gnawing his arm off.
|This is the only primrose that looked half decent today|
|I walked past Bill cutting the front|
|Blurry but you get the 'picture'|
These were pink and white

|These are too far from me to be bothered - good!|
|And these bigger guys show no fear either|
With 5 ingredients and 3 minutes, I had a slice of bread. It looks like bread, smells like bread but I held off tasting it until I was ready. It is suggested that if you want a grilled cheese sandwich, this is how you can have one on the keto diet/lifestyle. So, I buttered the halved slices and loaded shredded cheese on top. I will fry it up and let you know. Just not now, I had a handful of walnuts instead.

It was around 2 when Bill texted me to bring him a cold Zero Coke. So, I poured that into a glass of ice, cut him a couple of slices of cheese and took them down. I’ve said before that no grass grows under his feet. He already had a few of the bottom pieces of drywall installed! What a guy! When I returned to the Suite, I poured myself a Diet 7Up and called out the door to him that I was available if he needed me to hold up the top pieces.
Sitting here, I can feel the muscles I
used with my weed eater this morning. At least I didn’t overdo it and all
should be well in the morning. Tomorrow is going to be a fun day. The girls, Pat,
Donna, Gayle and I are heading into London to our friend’s clothing exchange. A
time to reunite with our London friends. We are all looking forward to it and
will take the 4 huge bags from the last one here in Hanover. They didn’t come
to that one.

Jamie suggested every 2 weeks and we’d not done them for 3 simply because it isn’t something I will do on my own. No way could I do those plus everything else in a reasonable amount of time. The place was busy but we worked around everyone as best we could before putting things away and heading out. It was an hour and half with both of us so I’m glad Bill was able to help me out. We topped up Ptooties and made a withdrawal at the RBC before hi-tailing it for home.
I had bought Chapman’s Black Cherry
ice cream and that sounded good to both of us. First, I hopped in the shower
and then dished some up as a treat. We hadn’t had ice cream for a very long
time. I finished my blog post and then sat for a while with Bill and Clemson
before calling it a night.
We have had a busy but enjoyable day. It was perfect
weather reaching 68F/20C and we didn’t once have a complete sun. It always had
a bit of cloud or haze blocking the view but that was just fine. I hope you had
a great day too.
|From our back corner window, I can see my vegetable garden now|
|And the hazy sun was with us as we left Durham|
|And it wouldn't be fitting ending with anyone other than Chippy|
Good night all!
