I was awake at 6 am on Friday, Oct. 4th and heard the Keurig turn on. I also noticed something different, I had a warm snuggle bug beside me again! It was obvious that Bill was awake too when our hands found each other’s and held on. We dozed until closer to 7 and got up. Bill got washed up and drove to Hanover for his last bloodwork before we leave. Just follow-ups. I made my tea and sat reading blog posts for half hour.

Around 8 I bundled and went for my walk. The air was certainly chilly, only 43F, feeling like 39! Good grief! Part way down Baptist Church Road I noticed that there was no wind and that made a whole difference. The fresh air alone was refreshing and I warmed up by stepping at a regular comfortable pace. As I reached Turbine Lane, up over the hill, a car wasn’t moving over to the other lane so I stepped off into the grass a bit. Then it seemed to be coming right at me! Bugger! It was Bill returning from Hanover.

After he left, Bill hopped in Ptooties and drove to Owen Sound. Princess Auto is one of his favourite stores in Canada and I tease that the little P.A. catalogue is his toy catalogue. He cashes in on deals and things we and he needs for rv’ing or his hobbies. I’m all for a sale so trust his judgement on what he buys. Down south, as you men all know, its replacement is Harbor Freight. I will have to get out to the storage shed today and dig out my old sheets for covering the garden veggies. It will be close to freezing tonight and don’t want to lose my last growers.

it was wonderful to be sheltered.

We had our Blue Flame heater on low overnight and up a bit more all day. My toes were cold and so to keep the heat downstairs, we closed the bedroom door. We all know heat rises so it was toasty up there. What a difference that makes! Bill and I chatted about this winter’s travels and missing our buddies, texted to invite ourselves in to their place for a bit of a Happy Hour. We are sad that they are not able to join us for the beginning of our journey.

So, I warmed up the leftover spaghetti, toasted a bun for Bill and I had some salad with mine. It was fast and still delicious. We had a dish of custard for dessert and then as I wrote my post, we started watching The Good Doctor as recorded on our PVR and then moved on to NCIS and New Amsterdam.
I cuddled up in my chair with my wool wrap. This was a cold fall day. The sun came out as we left Rob and Pat’s making way for a very cold night. That is the first we’ve seen it for a few days, almost didn’t recognize it! I’m glad we are home together and have a few days together. I hope things are well in your world too.
