So, it happened during the wee hours of Saturday, Apr. 25th. While we were still sleeping. The temperature rose to an almost balmy 2C/39F by 7:30, when we got up. Spring is here! What made it even better is that the sky is solid (SOLID) blue and Mother Earth has blessed us with beautiful, warm sun to start our day. Pinch me, on second thought, please don't.

It was an awesome walk and I texted Bill not to worry, that I would be longer than normal. I truly didn’t want it to end. Only 2 vehicles were on the road the whole time I was. It seems weird, it is Saturday after all. I’m glad I had the bag with me as by the time I passed Turbine Lane, it was almost full of beer cans, bottles and a whiskey bottle. It is obvious that this should be called ‘Joy ride’ road instead of Baptist church road. LOL I didn't find one Bible or hymnal.

My walk was an hour today and almost 3 miles. That felt great. The cool air in my face when I turned east on North Line was refreshing. Again, what a change. 😊 I stopped to show Bill the bag full of '$' and after showing me his plans for the cargo trailer, he walked up with me to show me where he’d like to put the free cupboards we picked up. I opened up the doors to the Bunky, even the inside one, letting sun get in there before going into the Suite.

They'll go nicely on the corral hill we are trying to fill with plants

T-shirt weather has arrived!

The neighbour's cat is often over here
|I love our birdhouse (not resided in, ever)|
We got it from Bill's Dad when they sold their duplex in Goderich
about 4 or 5 years ago.

I'm sure of it
|And you know who was out sunning|
I spread a thick layer of mulch over the dirt and around the hostas, rose of Sharon and tiger lilies. Hopefully, they will take off now and not be choked out by weeds. Donna and Gerry had arrived at the Acreage around 11:30 and we said we’d pop over later. At 2, it was later, so we took a diet soda over and sat outside their Landmark 5th wheel and visited for a couple of hours. I think we’re all going a bit stir crazy and this felt really nice and safe, sitting at a distance in the warm sun.

Those babies should be born soon
