Tuesday, June 9th we were up and at ‘em at 6:30. We both had work today. Bill showered and got his usual stuff ready, having packed his lunch last night, and then I washed and headed into Durham to clean the Mat. I arrived by 7:30.
|I had to grab my dust mop as soon as I walked in|
It's like someone had a party in here!
|What I found in the small washroom on the floor|
An extra good reason why I wear gloves
|The recycle bins are often overflowing with some garbage|
but clothes, make up bags, makeup etc. filled this one today
Then I set about the rest of my cleaning, which wasn’t bad at all. Lastly, finishing up with another dust mop and then wet mop. I feel good that it is left in great condition when I head out no matter how it looked when I arrived. I had to take pictures today because Bill wouldn’t believe it. Hmm, yes, he would, he cleaned schools. It was a hot day already and I drove to Foodland for milk, to Esso for fuel and then to Home Hardware to pick up something Bill ordered.
|I meant to show you the 'ditch' I edged around the fire pit|

|I hope they take off and spread out|
There was a slight breeze out there, but very little of it so I will find myself a comfy spot in the shade and be lazy. I feel for Bill and their crew today as it will be very humid for them working. Maybe they’ll stop early, Mike, the boss, is very cognizant of weather working conditions for his staff when they are outside. I hope it is a shorter day for them but we’ll see.
I went outside with my book, but there isn’t a lot of shade in the middle of the day so I soon gave up and came inside. I’d put the a/c on in here to get it cool for Bill and us this evening and can already notice a nice difference. Something the Suite couldn’t offer right now! There wasn’t much I could do so basked in the luxury of ‘nothing’ for today. Inside I found an old channel and watched Highway to Heaven for an hour before walking down the lane to the mailbox.
|The wind was almost non-existent today|
when we needed it

They dedicate so much time and then walk away
I realized that Bill was making a whole day of working so they must be doing alright. I heard him coming up the lane around 4:45 so they worked 7 ½ hours. They are braver than I am! I was sitting outside waiting for him under the awning shade and then we came inside to the cooler air. We watched some NCIS as neither of us were ready to eat yet.
Even at 6, “are you hungry?”, “Nope, are you?” So, it was 6:30 when we toasted some bread and made tomato, cheese and lettuce sandwiches. I’d taken a roast out of the freezer this morning, thinking an Instant Pot meal but if you’re not hungry for a big meal, it would be pointless. We’ll have it tomorrow or Thursday. While slouching before supper, CarStar called with the delightful news that our Suite should be ready tomorrow. She’ll call in the morning to arrange pick up. Yay!

|Knock, knock, who's there?|
No, Chippy, you can't come in and I don't have any peanuts
Before saying goodnight, I need to wish Charlotte a great birthday!
|Happy Birthday pretty lady!|
Thank you for stopping by!
