Bill and I woke up between 6:30 and 7 and I got up first to get in the shower. When I finished, he got up and had his. Today is Thursday, Apr. 30th and two people who are close to us are celebrating a birthday today. Our friend, Keith, and our brother-in-law, Gerry. There are about 9 or10 years between them. Happy Birthday guys!
|Happy Birthday, Keith!|
|Happy Birthday, Gerry!|
It was a rainy, warm morning, already 10C/50F when we got up and the winds were calmer, at last. We had our tea and coffee and around 9:30 I started making something for breakfast. Toasted egg sandwiches today. After dishes, we hopped in Ptooties and took a drive. Bill had a delivery to make and we had a visit scheduled.
|I looked up and saw this through our sun roof|
|The sky today changed many times|
and the temperature rose to 14C/56F
We drove through light rain, gray clouds, white clouds and even some blue sky poking through.
|A socially distanced visit|
Ken and Kim are even distanced!
|Their home is full of surprises in their redecorating|
and antique haven
We arrived at Ken and Kim’s home in Ingersoll. Ken is working on building a remote-control airplane and Bill had some things for him to aid in the process. We knew they had a large home although we’d not seen it yet, so when they invited us inside for a visit, we accepted. It was so great to see them after spending a lot of the winter months with them in the southwest. We’ve missed the Happy Hours.
We visited safely, keeping the distance across their living room, and got caught up on things since we said goodbye on Mar. 20th. We said our goodbyes before 5 and on the way through Woodstock, stopped for a fast food fix at Wendy’s.
|There are some very old and picturesque buildings|
|A private home|
|this one may have apartments because of the vehicle parking|
It would be 7 before we reached Durham and that would be late to order take out. This was better and a change. I haven’t had a night off from cooking for over a month so it was quite acceptable.
|The clouds were busy all day keeping cover|
It was 7:30 when we were settled in at home. The Suite was warm but felt a bit damp so Bill turned the b.f. heater up a bit and we relaxed in front of the tv. This is going to be one of my shortest posts. When it’s been a great day, sometimes there isn’t anything else to say. We enjoyed the drive and loved the visit. I hope you enjoyed the random pictures taken from our drive today.
|Downtown Durham is looking quiet|
We are looking forward to a more pleasant weather day tomorrow and some sunshine would be great!
|At the Ridge, I was happy to see this little chickadee having supper|
Good night everyone
