On Tuesday, Mar. 2nd I was awake by the time Bill was ready to leave for work. The day started out much like yesterday, as far as the weather, minus the winds. I dozed until a few minutes after 7 when I got up and washed my face. I slipped into my loungers, I went down for my tea and sat at my laptop to finish my blog from yesterday.
time I was finished, the sun was shining over Paisley. Such a wonderful sight,
being ‘able’ to SEE down the street. 😊 I had my shower and then used my Dirt Devil vacuum to clean
the floors in our room, loo and closet. I love that little thing; it works like
a charm! It was around 10 when I went down to make a coffee and took it out to
the garage to work on the puzzle.
intention was to add a few pieces but before I knew it, close to 12 noon, I had
finished it. This was a very interesting one and took me longer to complete it.
Thank you, Harvey, for this challenge! Before coming upstairs, I got out the
ham, pepperoni slices, shredded cheese, mayo, tortillas and an egg. Time for
lunch! Ooh, I do love my quesadillas. They are always original with whatever I
have on hand and taste great!
back upstairs and checked my bids on the Rockford site. I was outbid on a
couple of things that I was willing to let go and a couple of others that I
challenged by upping my own bids. It closes in the evening tomorrow. When I
came up from the puzzle, I had a bit of a headache. I had smelled gas fumes (?)
last night when I came home and smelled them again today. Maybe that did it, so
after eating, I came upstairs and curled up on the bed for half hour with my

dozed for a bit and when I got up around 1:30, felt better but still decided
that a walk would help even more. The sun was out periodically, with blue skies
and some white fluffy clouds. I bundled but at -3C/28F didn’t think I needed my
mad bomber hat. It would have been too much, even with the wind making it feel
much colder. My blue hat, scarf around my chin and the coat with a hood was

patches were what I was concerned about but decided to forgo the poles and
trust my grippers. I walked the clear sidewalks and curbs to the north end of
town and veered back onto the back streets, scanning that corner of Paisley
completely before cutting back up along the snowy trail to the bridge. I felt
safe enough, the snow was hard packed and shiny from underlying ice but my
grippers held me in place. 😊
The water was flowing from 6 out of 7 'ports'
at the dam today and ice was breaking up
I started up this street but there was no street to get
back into town, so I turned back

the mail before returning home but there was nothing for us. We don’t get bills
in the mail so I’m never concerned with that. I’ve been receiving Mom’s last
T4A and T5 slips for Income Tax and Bill and I have received ours from our
pensions. This year, we think we’ll get Tim Summers, in Durham, to do our taxes
for once. He does Mom’s every year and it would be nice to see if we are
missing anything. I’ll touch base with him soon.

For the next hour or so, I read. It is the best time for me, when I’m not tired and have nothing pressing going on. The book is a great read. I’d just finished my afternoon tea around 4:15 when Bill texted so I took my cup down and unlocked the door. No worries with weather driving today, yay!

until almost 6 when I went to start supper. Chicken thighs with shake ‘n bake,
roast potatoes, broccoli and corn was on the menu. Peanut butter cookie for

It was a good meal
We did the dishes; I came up and Bill made his lunch before joining me. Tonight is Family night in the house, first Jeopardy with W & S and Bill joins us for NCIS at 8. Finally, another new episode! Back in our room, I finished my blog and then did some more reading. What else?

With work tomorrow, I won’t stay up much past 10 so like to get a couple of chapters read at least before I turn the lights out. This was a nice day, at home with no worries.
