On Saturday, Apr. 18th we woke and got up around 7:30. Looking outside, there was an abundance of fog around the area so I knew I would not be walking this morning. Darn! I was hoping to get two days in a row as it is warmer than it was Friday. Maybe later. We had our drinks in our recliners today and caught up on our friends’ news. Bill went outside after 9 to putter and eventually ended up down at the Hangar.
|Finally around 10, the fog lifted|
Not only is the day foggy but our minds are foggy with all the options, choices, decisions, positives, negatives and ‘what-ifs’ running through them. I’ve got to shake my head and get busy at something so I’m not letting it get me down in the dumps. It is the weekend so we have children phone calls to make and that will perk us up. We had our breakfast for lunch and then Bill went out again to the Hangar.
With all the stuff we’re trying to put on the back burner, I texted Suzie and she called so we could chat. It was very nice to hear her voice too. She gave me some info that we were curious about. My sister, Gayle, and her husband texted and asked if we were up for a visit, socially distanced of course. We haven’t seen them since Pilot Knob so we were happy to see them. They arrived around 3:30 so we had tea together and chatted across the span of the living room about the upsets of last winter and the possible ones ahead.

It was a cold wind outside even though the sun made appearances during the day. At one point, I slipped my newly crocheted sweater on over my hoody and went out to help Bill measure a couple of things. The Suite, for one, and the frame for our ‘car’ shelter. We need a new cover for it so wanted to have it set where he wants it and measured properly. I was happy to get back indoors. My sweater is warm but not quite warm enough in this weather.
|Leftover spaghetti - yum|
I worked at a new puzzle for a lot of the day. For supper, I had an easy job. I warmed up our last container of chili on the stove and the leftover spaghetti in the microwave. Bill had the former and I had the latter. Yum, both were delicious and very filling. Shouldn’t need dessert tonight, maybe a peanut butter macaroon cookie. 😊
|The sky is pretty clear tonight|
After dishes, we rode over to the Acreage so Bill could turn a tap back on. It isn’t going to be as cold tonight but better to be safe than sorry.

Tonight, Bill slowed down so I could
It was probably warmer out at 7:30 than it has been all day. 9C/48F. We called Bridgette and Chris to see if they were up for a visit tomorrow. It isn’t going to be a very nice day but they have a big house and we can remain distant. The drive will do us good and there won’t be any touching or hugging once we arrive. Oh, how I long for the day to be able to do that again.

This was a lazy day but it was nice to see family. I hope you’ve enjoyed your day. Before saying good night, it is time to wish our grandson a special day. Connor turns 15 today and that is exciting!!
|Happy 15th Birthday, Connor|
Thank you for stopping by.
