On Wednesday, Apr. 8th we were lazy and when I saw the fog outside, decided there was no urgency to getting up – again. So, we slept in until 7:30. It was a warmer night, the thermometer was the telltale at 5C/42F. We had our coffee and tea together and I spent time on Facebook before getting into our blogs. Bill was enjoying his plane building so had his coat on at 9 and headed down to the Hangar.
|Yeuch, too foggy to walk all morning|
I’m so glad that he is relaxing more and doesn’t have the push on right now to always to be working. It is a mixed blessing, isn’t it? Here we are, many of us are off work at the same time and yet we can’t spend time with our loved ones outside the home. I’m feeling quite relaxed but it is funny how hard it is to settle things down inside myself. Do you know what I mean? Working on the laptop, I’m still thinking “I’d better finish this so I can ………hmmm, I guess I don’t HAVE to do anything”. LOL

While it was foggy and I couldn’t walk yet, it was the perfect time to get the dusting done. I turned all the overhead lights on in here (the better to see it with) and set to work. It took me an hour to cover all of the woodwork upstairs and down and that included cleaning out 2 cupboards over the sofa. One is our games-type cupboard and the other is our memory cupboard, where we keep personal collections and things we can’t and don't want to get rid of.
|This was a cold walk|
I found 2 of the 500-pc. puzzles (borrowed from Pilot Knob) that I tucked away for just this type of day. As you know, there is one in the Bunky that I work on but it is just too darn cold today to go out there. Checking the size of these puzzles, I was thrilled to see that they’ll fit perfectly on our coffee table. I cleared it off and got all the pieces flipped over and sorted before making Bill and I some poached eggs on toast for lunch. After dishes, he went back out and I sat on the couch to play at the puzzle.

Sound familiar, Maxx Trails?
Back inside, I worked on my post before sitting in my chair with my book. At 3, I made a nice hot cream cup of Earl Gray. It was just before my sister, Wendy, and I chatted back and forth on FB messenger that the sun made an appearance. Finally. There were still clouds but I noticed a rise in temperature. When my tea was finished, I took another short walk out to check on the turtles. I stopped in to see Bill before rejoining my recliner indoors.
|I have the perfect little setup|
|Because the table lifts up so I don't need to bend over|
When Bill came in at 5, I already had NCIS on. We watched reruns until I started baking more tea biscuits to go with our leftover stew and rice. These are so easy to make and while they baked, I made us each a salad using up the last of the head lettuce in the fridge. I’ll have to add that to the grocery list. Supper was done and cleaned up from by 7 pm. Everything tasted great and we are both very full.
|Lots to eat for supper and it was delicious|
This has been a good day with a few more little things taken care of. During the evening, I plan to work on my puzzle and my book. Bill will probably watch his movies. 😊 I hope you’ve had an enjoyable day.
|Good night everyone!|
Thank you for popping in!
