My ‘Sweets’ and I were up by 7:30 on Saturday, Feb. 27th. The house was quiet, with no one else up yet. We went down to make our coffee and tea before I sorted the clothes. Susan usually does her laundry first and that frees up the machines for us to get ours done so I was in no rush to sort. We sat at our laptops with our brew and I started and finished Friday’s blog post. That was a busy day so I had nothing written at all! 😉
With that done, I took the time to go on the ‘new’ Rockford auction site. There are 30 pages and I didn’t have time to peruse those yesterday either. We find it interesting and the Rockford one has better quality stuff, including tools etc. that Bill is more interested in. I found a couple of things to bid on right away but mostly, I’ll just keep ‘watching’ until closer to the closing on Wednesday.
I went downstairs around 11:30 and Susan was done in the laundry room so I put our sheets and towels in. Bill had eaten toast and peanut butter earlier so wasn’t hungry when I was. I had some yogourt and warmed up the leftover soup for my lunch with crackers. That hit the spot. At some point, in between loads of laundry, I worked on the puzzle. At one point, I went out to the car and brought in my auction picks and sorted through them.
I’d picked up 3 models of cars for Bill for a meagre 3$ and we discovered that 2 were partially put together, roughly, making the decision to only keep the third one. There were brushes, various good paints and some glue that easily made it a good purchase. I was pleased with everything I bought, some toys for the grands when they visit the Ridge but nevertheless, I had fun checking it all out.
things into a couple of boxes and went down to make some No-Bake bars for a
snack. I had 3 black bananas crying to become bread so I mashed them with dates today. I'll mix it all up tomorrow. We’ve planned fish and chips for supper, since Bill had a burger last
night and went down around 6 to start them.
There is always a puzzle on the go
If not, start one

Bill would have at least one movie tonight to watch so I got one of my new dvd’s out to test the external cd drive. It worked just fine before supper so fingers crossed that I can watch A Walk in the Clouds later.
Since I finished my book last night, I needed to find a new one to start on so I got out The Lake of Dreams by Kim Edwards. She is the author of The Memory Keepers Daughter and I enjoyed that one. Gayle gave me this one. The weather today was kind of funny. First thing this morning, it was snowing, heavy at times, but it was a wet snow and soon dissipated and we noticed it melting as soon as it hit the ground. No accumulation to speak of. Good!
It was mild at 3C/38F though we didn’t get as much sunshine as I thought we were supposed to. Maybe tomorrow we’ll see it. I should have walked but I didn’t. Simple as that. Maybe tomorrow I’ll get out. That’s a couple of maybes in a row, ‘maybe’ one will pan out! 😊 Supper was quite good. I am trying to behave with my food choices (gotta get back on track sometime!) so I had about 6 fries and spaghetti squash with my fish. Who knows? Maybe fish and squash will be a new trend! Nah.

but it tasted wonderful!
After dishes, we came upstairs and I worked on publishing this post. Hopefully, our movies are good ones. I hope you’ve had a great Saturday. Before I sign off, there is a special young lad who needs to be wished a Happy Birthday. My 3rd biological grandson, Nathan, turned 11 today. We called him this morning to pass the message along and he thanked us for the card and the $ we sent. I’m glad I mailed to arrive on time.
And now to the birthday boy
Here he is at 3 1/2 yrs. old
Out of season, yes, but one of my favourite times with him
He literally ran and hugged them both

You can see why I ask for updated pictures!
Happy Birthday Nate!
Good night everyone!
Thank you for your visit today.
