On Wednesday, Sept. 30th we woke to even cooler temperatures. Bill was already up, shame that he has to work today but we can’t all get a birthday off. Yes!! It is Bill’s birthday today and although not a milestone #, it is for a very special someone. Downstairs, I peeked out the kitchen window behind the blind at 6:30 and said “ooh, it’s so dark out there”. Picture those words in a scared little girl voice, it has more effect. 😊
Bill opened the cards that he’d had drifting in and mine as well and then I had to say goodbye and get on the road to Durham. Cleaning day! The sky was very interesting this morning. As I cleaned, it changed colour a couple of times and ended with a gorgeous full rainbow, doubling up at each end. Lovely! It was a simple cleaning day but I still had to leave Jamie a text about a couple of things that I can’t look after. I was out of there by 8.
No need to stop anywhere else so I headed home and relaxed until 10 to 9. I did some taping, papering and sanding today at the shop and made a trip into town for something that we couldn’t get yesterday. This truck will be ready for Mitch to start painting at 2. I stayed until 12:30 to make sure the sanding was all done and the body smooth to the touch. At home, I made my lunch with a coffee before once more going back into town. I needed to get greeting cards and stamps that I'd forgotten about earlier.
I had to pop around to a couple of stores in town to find the cards I wanted and for the price I wanted to pay. I refuse to pay a stupid amount for anyone’s card. It ends up in the recycle bin so the less I pay, the better. The meaning is the same. A couple of times, the rain caused me to put the wipers on intermittently and when I stepped out of the I.D.A. Pharmacy, I had to wait for a downpour to pass overhead. Funny, that was the brightest sky of the whole day!
Back home, I did the dishes and then decided to bring my paints in from the Bunky and test them all. If they weren’t any good, out they went. No point in taking them to Paisley if they were garbage. I found a handful, maybe 6 bottles so that wasn’t too bad, leaving me with lots to choose from.
As I was working on that, the birthday boy returned home and opened his cards from Mitch. Yes, my boss didn’t forget him either. 😊 We got a chuckle out of that.
For supper tonight, we had chicken thighs, shared a potato and some veggies. The rain started again around 4:30 and the air temperature dropped even more. It was a chilly 11C/52F outside most of the afternoon.
We finished with our supper which Madame IP was happy to cook for us. The potatoes and cauliflower on top of the thighs were perfect and Bill’s corn in the microwave complimented his dinner plate. Once more, a banana split was for dessert. Bill went down to the Hangar to work on his Corsair some more. He is making progress bit by bit and is doing what he loves.
I think Bill will concur when I say this was a good day and now Hump Day is over. Thank you for popping in!
