On Sunday, Apr. 19th Bill was up first and in the shower by 7:15. I was awake and waited until he was done and it was my turn. With that out of the way, we met downstairs for our coffee and tea. Unfortunately, it was raining and would be all day so no walking but fortunately it was clear precipitation this time. We can live with that.
|Looking for something different to take pictures of today|
I focused on some beautiful homesteads on our drive
We sat down together and called Marilynne and began our phone calls to the kids. Once that was finished, we set about getting the day underway. I worked on the puzzle for a bit and we each had a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast. After dishes, we left the Suite around 11:30 and took a leisurely drive to Tavistock.
|Some have nice ponds|
We’d told Bridgette to expect us between 1:30 and 2 but we were early so stopped to say hey to Bob and Jo-Anne. We did a door way greeting and chatted for about 15 minutes.
|Others have porches and little barns|
|some have llamas|
At Bridgette’s, we were greeted by Bridgette, had a coffee and moved on into their living room as it is their largest room to be social-distanced. We managed to be at least 6’ apart, more like 10 so it was quite nice.
|We were thrilled when the clouds broke up and the sun came out|
We gave them their gift and also the ones for Taylor and Jake. Chances of us seeing them anytime soon is slim. ☹

Oh, it theirs

The time slipped by and before we knew it, it was almost 4:30. We texted Yvonne next, as they were on the route home, and swung around there for a garage visit.

It was nice to see them and 3 of the boys. We missed you Braeden! We think they also liked their goodies that we chose. It was getting late so we headed out of there around 5:30.

On the way home, we turned towards the Acreage and Bill turned the tap on to a slow flow for the night would be another one below freezing.

We were both getting hungry so as soon as we got back to the Ridge, I started making grilled cheese sandwiches for supper. Bill likes his done in the oven so the best I could do was fry it in our copper pan. He doesn’t like the extra butter that I do so I did them separate. Mine had onion slices in it and they hit the spot for a quick meal. It was almost 8 o’clock when we finished dishes and turned American Idol on.

Thank you for stopping in!
