On Tuesday, Jan. 19th I slept through most of Bill’s morning routine again. Just heard him in the bathroom at 6:20 finishing up so I was obviously in deep slumber when he got up. He peeked out the window and gave me my weather report, not that I had to go anywhere, but so I wouldn’t worry about him taking Black Beauty instead of Patootie. I offered her to him last night.
It had snowed overnight but nothing for Bill to worry about. Well, I sat up in bed with my book and the lamp on and read until closer to 8. When I then got up to go make a tea, it was a snowy, blowy day out there. I’m glad it was my day off ‘cause I wouldn’t be going anywhere. Donna said the sun was shining in Hanover so I did what any self-respecting sister would do. I sent it her way! She was being a little cocky with the emoji wearing sunglasses! Haha

Off and on all morning, we got dumped on so Wes was out a few times shoveling the walkway. I finished my morning tea and at 10 did that forceful ‘talking to myself’ thing and went for my walk. It was cold, but I had my winter gear on and even my hood up to keep my face sheltered, and came home quite satisfied that I got out. The mail wouldn’t be sorted yet so I didn’t take the key but I did stop in to get a padded envelope for my jacket return.
Shall we walk across the bridge? On the far bridge you
might be able to see the sidewalk plow, doing the main walkways
in the downtown core
I was grateful for them today
Even though i made a split decision to walk the trail You wouldn't think it would be hard to follow
a trail but when it is completely blinding white
I had to stop to take my pictures or I'd end
up on the side of the hill
For lunch, I finished the cream of celery soup with crackers and then took my water into the garage and started Susan’s puzzle. It will be a challenge but I will enjoy it. It is bigger than I usually do so it will take time and the bulk of the table top. I worked away until I had the border done and then went back to the post office to mail the parcel. It is -3C/27F but the network says it feels like -7C/19F with the wind. Brrr. Still okay to walk in though!
When I returned, I had my keys with me so hopped into Patootie and started her up. I may as well get her cleaned off today in case the weather is decent in the morning. Inside, all rosy cheeked, I made my tea and came up to work on my blog. It is just past 3:30 so I should be hearing from Bill soon. Until then, I’ll delve back into my book. For sure, I’ll be on the look out for more of his books, assuming of course he writes the same for all of them. 😊
texted at 4:30 that he was leaving Billy’s so I unlocked the door for him. The
snow had stopped but it looks like more coming at 11 pm through the wee hours
and then off and on again tomorrow. You’d think this was January.
|And this is the puzzle I'm putting together for Susan|
Bill snoozed while I finished the last 4 or 5 chapters of my book. Man, oh man, that was a good one with an ending that I couldn’t have figured out. I like those unpredictable ones. I mentioned yesterday that I had a new bout of shingles but it wasn't feeling quite the same. Upon closer examination, I discovered it wasn't. So, that's good and I put my pills away. Seldom am I wrong....... about shingles too. Ha ha

It was closer to 6:30 though by the time I finished and went down to start supper. By now, Bill was heavy into his book and was in no rush. I fried bacon and burgers so we had loaded bacon, lettuce and tomato cheeseburgers. No dessert tonight, these burgers filled us up. These PC burgers are my favourite. Angus burgers, I think they’re called. We cleaned up the dishes and Bill got his lunch ready before meeting in our room.
|Easy but delicious supper tonight|
At 8, we went next door to the theatre room to watch the two new episodes of NCIS. Finally, we’ve been waiting for the new seasons to start and this one is our favourite.
I’m sure we’ll be in bed soon after 10 when they end so I’ll try and finish this now. I’ll have to find my next book or crochet a couple of rows of my shawl. This was a good ‘home’ day.
Thank you for popping in!
