On Sunday, Dec. 20th we slept in. Totally unsurprising for me since I was up last night until 11 pm! Unheard of! 😊 Anyway, it was 8 o’clock when we woke up and dragged ourselves out of bed. I feel like I’ve wasted the morning! I sorted 2 loads of laundry right away and we both went downstairs to make our coffee and tea. I got one load started before returning to our room. In between laundry trips up and down, we were on our laptops upstairs.
It was a morning of Googling and reading some blogs for Bill and once I finished my blog, I did the same. I played with my online pictures, meaning I put the last 7 months into folders and also transferred them to my external hard drive. I have a folder entitled “Summers” where April to October folders go, plus I have one entitled “Snowbird Trip …..” dated for the specific winter. Hmm, so what do I do with October, November etc. this year? I made a new folder titled “Winter at Home 2020-21”. ☹
Ahead of us on our drive to the Ridge, we had to slow
down behind a buggy filled with 6 passengers and 2 horses
It was more slushy than icy which was better, I'd think.
We couldn't pass until we got over the hill
With that done, time was passing so we went down around noon to make lunch. Today it was pancakes and bacon. Wes and Susan were eating at the same time so we shared the table together. After dishes, Bill and I took a drive to the Ridge. He was looking for a manual for his RC hobby stuff that he thought he’d brought here. Unfortunately, it isn’t here so he wanted to check at the Hangar. It never hurts to keep an eye on the Ridge either, something Donna and Gerry normally do for us when we’re in the southwest.
Things looked finep there on the hill. We parked outside the gate and walked up. It’s sad to see everything so abandoned but it isn’t a pleasant place to hang out right now, at least not in the Suite! Bill had no luck with his search but has an idea where his manual is now. We poked our heads in the Bunky and storage shed before walking back down to Ptooties. The reason for the drive didn’t pan out but at least we had an outing that took a couple of hours. It is a dull drizzly day, rain only. A milder spell has moved in our direction for a few days.

driven through it
The gate is heavy so why bother opening it through the snow?
Back home around 3, Wes and Susan were out when we came upstairs. I’d felt really tired in the car, from the late night, no doubt, but at home I seemed to come wide awake. I was sure I'd need a snooze. Unlike me, Bill dozed. I played games on my phone beside him on the bed. At 4:30 I made a cup of tea and then relaxed for an hour until it was time for supper. Because of our big lunch, it was going to be soup and appetizers from the freezer.

By 6:15, we were finished supper and dishes plus Bill had his lunch packed. There are movies tonight in the other room so this way Bill can relax a bit before going in.
I’ve decided to stay put tonight and watch my next dvd. Looks like it will be Charlie Wilson’s War with Tom Hanks. I worked on my blog in the meantime and Bill and I read feedback on our FB profile pictures and messages. All in fun.
Hope you had a good day. I didn’t get my full exercise today, just a mile and a half altogether! Geesh!
Thank you for your visit on this last Sunday before Christmas. Ho ho ho!
