We were up at a decent time on Saturday, Feb. 6th. I think it was 7 when we could no longer stay in bed. The house was quiet, although we knew Wes had been up because the 12v lights were on, lighting up the hallway and the stairwell. We went down and I made my tea. Bill dressed for outside and went out right away and shoveled the sidewalk out to the gate and across in front of the bank next door. The red brick building we are in.
Upstairs, we read blogs together and I felt hungry around 8:30 so made some oatmeal while Bill had some toast. Just enough to get us through until lunch. I went to the garage; I was anxious to work on the puzzle. I’m really enjoying the hobby and the freedom to do it whenever I want. It isn’t sunny today but with my small light on occasionally, I was getting enough to work away. Bill went downstairs to the basement for a while too.

In between doing those things, when Susan finished with her laundry, I did our two loads. Like she says, it is nice to have it done and out of the way. Maybe tomorrow I will strip the bed and do the sheets as well. The white liner of my coat needs to be sprayed around the collar and sleeves and perhaps given a wash as well. We’ll see, I hope to walk tomorrow at some point and I’ll need it.
At lunchtime, or thereabouts, I heated up the leftover spaghetti sauce and sausage and we had them sloppy joe style over buns. Wow! They were very good and hit the spot. After dishes, Bill went up for a snooze and I went back to the puzzle. It was around 2:30 when I put the last piece in. Tadah! Not too bad at all, finishing it in 3 ½ days, she says, as she pats herself on the back. 😉
With the clean clothes all put away, I hopped in the shower. The weather was pretty nasty but not because of heavy snowfall today. Today was just bitter cold at -9C/15F but mainly because of the wind chill. The winds were very gusty, between 25 & 40 km/h. I had planned on a walk to drop my library book off and then down further to the Fresh Mart for some bread and a couple of things on sale. My sweet, caring hubby said, ‘No, I don’t want you out in that’.
So, I didn’t walk. Outside or inside. For supper tonight, we had roast beef, potatoes, carrots and gravy with onions in Madame IP. It wasn’t the best cut of roast, we cut it off a tenderloin slab we bought, but it was still a really good meal. After dishes, we retired upstairs. Bill went in to watch a movie at 9 with Wes and Susan and when I finish this post, I'll be watching one of mine in our room.
We heard tonight that Hwy 21between Owen Sound and Port Elgin was closed so I guess it was a good thing not to be going too far today. The barricades came down around 5:30. We saw the county truck with the 'closure' signs go south. For us, even though 'barricaded' indoors, this was a good day. I have no real pictures to share today since I didn't get out but here are some that you might enjoy. I hope you are warm, healthy and happy where you are.
Thanks for the visit!
