The Ridge - Home Sweet Home
We woke around 7 on Thursday, Apr. 9th and the ground was white. We didn’t like the looks of that but we knew enough from the news last night that it was expected. Why is the weather forecaster always right when it is ‘not’ what we want to hear? LOL Bill got downstairs earlier and turned the heat up while making his coffee. I joined him within 20 minutes after making the bed. I made my tea and we sat and caught up on our friends’ blogs.
But Good morning regardless
|At 7:30 we saw this|
We heard a comment on our SiriusXM radio this morning that made us laugh. “Can we delete and reinstall 2020? This one has a virus”. Now, wouldn’t that be nice? After his coffee, Bill bundled and went outside to empty our black and gray tanks. Not a fun temperature for him to be doing that, it is below freezing. When he finished, he emptied the last 19 gallons of water from the water bladder still in the truck into our fresh water tank. Without even realizing that we are doing it, we seem to be rationing water.
|By 9, it was green again|
We took a drive into Durham to return Rob’s grass raker ‘thingy’ and their soup dish. We hung around and chatted with them from a distance for a while. It was nice to catch up a bit about our winter and theirs. Come to think of it, it was mostly ours, geesh sorry buddies. Still, it was very nice to see them again. The wind outside today is really nasty, with gusts between 20 – 28 mph. The sun is an invisible force in the sky today so I plan on staying indoors.
On the way back home, we stopped so I could run in to the post office and buy a book of stamps. It is nicely laid out, with directions to follow on the floor and the cashier is behind a counter and plexiglass. Before I left, I thanked her for being in at work for us. I think she appreciated that and probably doesn’t hear it enough. Life is trying to go on and this essential Government service is another important way to reach our loved ones.

Back home, I made us bacon and eggs with a tangerine and we had the last two biscuits from last night. Bill went down to the Hangar, saying it was warmer in there than it is outside. I’m not surprised but it still isn’t warm. He bundled and said he was fine. If he wasn’t, he’d be back in. 😊 I’m going to have my little puzzle done soon so will have to get the second one going too. I worked away until I finished it and then turned to my book.
For supper, I’d planned on fish and chips so when Bill came in at 4:30, he brought the little Fry Daddy. Together we watched some NCIS until it was time to start. At 6, we turned the CTV news on and even though it is very disturbing to hear about the fall out from Covid-19, it is something we need to be on top of. Once the oil was hot enough for the chips, Bill started those. I heated oil and cooked the Alaskan Pollock filets in a fry pan on the stove.

Supper was good. The fries were perfect and we are really enjoying the nice pieces of fish we bought this time. After dishes, we settled in for the night. It isn’t a good tv night so you know I’ll be getting into my book.

I’ll put the puzzle away and probably get the other one out tomorrow. This has been a nasty cold day and I didn’t even get out for a walk or to check the mail. I do believe we’re spoiled. I hope you managed to keep warm and had a good one!
