Bill was up first on Good Friday, Apr. 10th and hopped into the shower immediately. I stayed under the covers until he was done and then it was my turn. It was close to 8 when we were both downstairs with our morning drinks. When he asked me how I was this morning, I admit that I scowled. With a hand gesture to the window, he knew that I meant the outside weather. The ground was covered in white, this time at least 2” of ‘winter’ covered the land.

The problem in this weather is that I have NO, zero, zilch, nada, zip desire to even go out. Snow is one thing but snow plus gusting winds over 10 mph? Nope. Maybe this afternoon if the sun comes out and stays, I’ll go for a walk. No promises! The rest of the day, I worked on a new puzzle and then when the sun moved away from the back window, I moved to my chair and read my book. Tough life, isn’t it? As it turned out, Gayle had forgotten that it was a holiday and that stores were closed, so no visit today. That's what happens when we're retired and when we're all in isolation.

Bill had taken his camera out this morning and walked down the lane trying to get a picture of our Mother Geese. There are two of them, with their proud watchful mates, but it is difficult to see where they have their nests, especially in the snow. He was braver than me, out there in the cold.
|The snow started to go away by mid afternoon|
|Isn't he pretty?|
It wasn’t until after we’d watched some programs that I started the sausage in Madame IP and opened a can of pork and beans. This will be our Good Friday supper.

It was while they were in the pot that I bundled up and took my own walk down to the end of the lane. The flyers were in there from yesterday so again, not a wasted walk. Plus, that cold bitter fresh air actually felt good. All I could see were the Father Geese so I had no better luck than Bill did earlier finding Mama. Supper was ready before 6:30 and it turned out good. How could it go wrong? It was so simple. We had the last custard for dessert.
|I'm sure it doesn't look too appetizing for an Easter meal|
but it was fine for us
and tasted good

After dishes, I worked on my blog post and then sat at the puzzle for a bit watching some tv with Bill. This was certainly a lazy cold day and it isn’t going to get much better over the next week or so. I hope this finds you in good health and that you all stay that way.
Thanks for the drop in. Your comments are always appreciated.
