Thursday, June 4th when we got up, I couldn’t believe that it was already Thursday! This week is flying by and I guess that relates to how busy we’ve been. I’m supposing that the summer will fly by too which is sad since the nice weather took its time arriving. Today looks gorgeous with a nice sun peeking through a few clouds to the east. It was already 16C/62F.
I had a cup of tea while Bill got washed and ready for his work day. At 7:30 we drove together to Walkerton in Ptooties. It was a nice morning drive, about 40 minutes and I was able to see the house that they are renovating. Mike wasn’t there but I met one of crew and saw Emily, whom I’ve met a couple of times before. I’d noticed on the way through Hanover that Walmart had no lines at 8 so I stopped on the way home.
It was maybe 5 minutes before I was allowed in and right away, I knew it was a good decision as the Zero Coke and Diet Gingerale were on sale. I put 4 cases in my cart and we should be good for a while. I don’t drink it as often as Bill does but it is nice to be stocked up. With a few other groceries and my Calcium pills in the cart, I checked out and headed home.

Enjoying the moments
The drive back was uneventful, the construction near Durham on #4 has moved down a side road so it didn’t slow traffic down. I put things away, read my emails and then decided it was time to make a change. Just ‘because I can’. One of George's favourite things to say. 😊 I’ve been warning Bill for a week now what to expect but who knows what he’ll think when all is said and done. You’ll find out at the end of the post – maybe.

I made myself a coffee before 11 and sat to write a bit on here. The rest of the day is a bit of a blur, I had my lunch, took a couple of walks down the lane and watered the hanging basket down at Bill’s Hangar. I had a nice catchup chat with my London girlfriend and out of work hair stylist, Brenda, and then it was time to pick Bill up at his job. I left at 1:40 and was in Walkerton at 2:20. He was ready and I drove home.
|We ordered supper in from Kettles and sat in a bug free
Gerry, John and Gayle all smiles
He was hot and dirty but didn’t feel like dozing, which I thought he might while I drove. He hopped in the shower and while he did that I slipped into a summer dress and flip flops. Love the ease of hot weather dressing! I again drove to my sister Gayle’s and Bill was able to stretch back and have a snooze on the 30-minute drive. We were the first ones to arrive so made ourselves comfortable on their nice deck under the gazebo, with a full view of their pond, garden and yard area.

He can't blame me for the goofy pictures if he
doesn't look at the camera

You probably have a clue now what I was referring to earlier
When Donna and Gerry arrived we all had some happy hour drinks and enjoyed each other’s company. It was a beautiful day for an outdoor dinner. John took our orders from the Kettles menu and called them in for pick up. Kettles is about 15 minutes down the road towards Owen Sound so the 3 guys went. Eating out of the Styrofoam containers saved some dishes for our hosts and the food was great.
|Bill obliged when us sisters asked him to take a picture
No picture again today of my meal but I had 2 pcs. of tender liver with onions, bacon, baked potato and cole slaw. Delicious! Half the liver and coleslaw came home.

Biill could never see 'me' in the pictures I showed him
when I was younger in brown hair
Now he can
We sat around until close to 8 pm when Bill drove us home. What a great day! I was in bed by 9:30 as I still needed to catch up on last night’s restless sleep. The driving is unusual for me so that added to my sleepiness, I’m sure. Looking forward to another wonderful day on the horizon for tomorrow.
|So, that was our day
Good night from the Ridge!
Thank you for your visit!
