On Thursday, June 18th things pretty much followed every other day when I don’t work and Bill does. He gets up first with the alarm and I follow slower. After he leaves for work at 7:15, I went for my walk. The thought process on summer days like this is ‘get out there before it gets too hot’. I think we missed that mark. I say ‘we’ as on my return trip, I met another couple that I see occasionally. I’m glad I was finishing as I think they’d just got going. I think he might be the minister of the corner church.

Back home, it was tea time and I decided to have a piece of toasted rye bread with the rhubarb jam that my buddy, Rob, made for me. ♂ Well, maybe he helped Pat make it, but he saved me a jar and presented it to me. It was delicious and although I felt a bit (a teensy bit) guilty for the delectable sugary, carbish pleasure, I still enjoyed it very much.
Since our downstairs a/c isn’t working properly, I closed windows and the door and turned the upstairs a/c on. With the hall door open, it will cool the Suite down nicely. I then went out and got the paints out and positioned the two deck chairs in the shade again.
Just a few minutes after 9 Rob drove in with his son following on a motorcycle. They were here to get the fiver hitch back in the truck and take the Cedar Creek home. I needed a witness signature and he willingly obliged so I could mail the release letter today for Mom. They were on their way by 9:30 after one more thankyou from me for the use of their trailer. Already, the heat was beating down and around us. There was a nice little breeze coming from the north, so on my back as I worked away.

Moonflower is about to bloom
|Carmelita was sitting on my watering can this morning|
Interesting how she has camouflaged to match the colour
|I had no need to disturb her today|
|The chairs and table tops are done|
|My garden irises are so majestic and tall|

|I remembered to get a picture of my supper tonight|
Very good, the beef was so tender

We could barely see his head and little ears

Favourite picture today
Thank you for stopping in.
The chairs look great!ReplyDelete
Your final picture is my favourite as well. I love the large elm in silhouette.ReplyDelete
Woohoo!! Pretty chairs!!! Carmelita fascinates me. I'm surprised she/he sits so far up above the ground. Does she go away at night? You're definitely right about dinner. It looks fabulous!!!ReplyDelete
Carmelita does disappear at night.
Your chairs look very colourful :-)ReplyDelete
Thank you! That was the plan. 😁Delete

I hum Walking In A Winter Wonderland when I walk. It sets a good pace.ReplyDelete
Ha ha! That's funny, Karen! Humming a winter song while walking in the nice summery weather. :) Good for you!Delete
