On Monday, Mar. 30th we slept until 8 o’clock!! It just felt right, such lazy bones we are getting to be! I was making my tea and when I disposed of my teabag in our kitchen composter, I thought of the garbage. Today, is pick up day! We don’t have enough recycling to worry about but I handed Bill our last tag and he drove the bag down to the roadside before 8:30. We’ve forgotten what time they come but we didn’t want to miss our first pick up. It only happens once every 2 weeks so don't want to miss it.
our drinks while reading blogs and comments and I chatted back and forth with
Donna while working on the Word search from the paper. I gave up on working on
the Crossword this morning with 80% of it finished. I’d have to cheat to fill
in the rest so moved on. Hunting for scrambled words is good for the mind too
and for hand dexterity! 😊 I looked up at 11:40 and the garbage
truck was just pulling up. Now we know what time they come. Last summer it was much earlier.

Above, I mentioned my kitchen compost bin and that is something I’m happy to get back to. There is a lot of wet garbage that can be disposed of this way and when you pay for your garbage pickups, it makes sense to minimize where you can. There are some questionable things, like eggshells that I don’t put in every time. We have a lot, as you know from our breakfasts, and unless I crush them really fine, they don’t compost very quickly. I use my judgement on how often they go in the bin.

Then at 4:45 I thought I’d better put the sweater down (sleeves almost done!) and start prepping supper. Meatloaf and veggies tonight. After the meat was prepared and in Madame IP for cooking, I went out for a walk down the laneway. I wasn’t sure if the mail lady stopped today. It’s a cool day with a chilly wind and I had my hoody up the whole way. As it turns out, our flag was up but all it was was another card regarding the Covid virus. Stuff we’ve already seen and already know.
On the way back up the hill, I stopped in to see Bill. It was after 5 and he was working on a plane while watching NCIS. He returned to the Suite after he heard that I wasn’t watching anything up here and could turn it on. The temperature for the rest of the day didn’t get above 3C/37F and as you can tell, that has even dropped since first thing this morning. We know it is supposed to warm up a bit but only by a few degrees over the next few days. We’re waiting for double digits!
IP on its NR, I cooked some broccoli on the stove for me and corn for Bill in the microwave.
We were eating shortly after 6 and got dishes out of the way soon after. I’m
really stumped on how to decrease the neckline on my sweater so will be pulling
up little YouTube clips to help me out. I’ve come so far but it needs to be
fixed for sure. I worked on my post to get that out of the way and then went
back at it. We have programs on tv to watch so that will keep me calm. 😊

Good night from the Ridge
