On Saturday, Jan. 30th we woke up pretty early. For a Saturday. It was 6:30 and then 7 when we got up. Slept out, I guess. We went down for our morning drinks and returned to our room to read blogs. I had one to finish so did that first. Susan called up around 8:30 that her wash was finished if I wanted to do ours today rather than tomorrow. Sure!
We sorted our clothes and took them down to start. At 11:30 we had our bacon and eggs and after everything was done, including dishes, I went down to start the new puzzle. I was downloading the Samsung software update which took over 3 hours but I’d been putting it off for months. Susan came into the garage and worked beside me, painting some of her crafts. It was a change and nice to spend the time together.
I think it was around 3:30 when we had done enough and parted ways. She went for a coffee and I decided I’d better get out for some fresh air and exercise. With my grippers on my boots, long coat, hat, muffs and a letter to mail, I headed out. The sun was actually shining so I stopped at Ptooties and grabbed my sunglasses. It was cold, -2C/28F, but there was no wind. I had my scarf up around my chin and at certain points even put my hood up.

coming back from the park
I walked down the main street, mailed the letter and carried on down Inkerman St. to Dundas, where the park began, then Alma, James and up Water St. It would have been easy walking through the park today as snowmobilers had tamped a trail but I chose not to.

the last time I walked through there
Ahead of me were a couple of walkers, I waved and passed abald-headed man (who should have a hat on!) with a snowblower and then I met Phoebe and her owner.
Her owner talked, she just posed and was a very good girl for the 10 minutes we chatted. She is not a healthy 1 ½ yr. old but an adorable Labradoodle and she has ‘parents’ who love her enough to care for her and provide her with what she needs. Phoebe has Addison's disease. 😢 I walked back up to home. By now, I was nice and warm and it was a shame to end the walk. It was my 2 miles though and I was feeling tired. Seemed to be a lot of townsfolk out and about today.
Meet Phoebe in her booties Isn't she adorable?
He said she doesn't seem to mind wearing them but
putting them on is a different story 😆
I remember putting the knitted ones Mom made on Clemson
He just stood there with his legs spread apart
"are you kidding me, Mom?"
Inside, from the kitchen, I texted Bill to tell him that I was having a diet Gingerale instead of a tea. He requested a Zero Coke and upstairs we relaxed until supper time.
|It was a pretty afternoon|
At 6, we went downstairs where I fried our burgers and mixed a batch of coleslaw. They were tasty as usual and didn’t take long. By 7, dishes were done and I was back upstairs in our room, working on today’s post. Bill went in to watch two movies tonight with Wes and Susan so I hooked up my tv and watched The Green Mile.
|A tasty easy supper|
No dessert again!
This was a nice day. A relaxing day to do laundry and then fun things like my puzzle and a walk in the sunshine.
