Wednesday, Mar. 17th Bill was up at his normal time, 5:45 am. After we said goodbye, and granted ourselves an extra lengthy hug, he left and I just stayed in bed for about 15 minutes. When I got up, in one way I was grateful to have work to go to but in another, I still felt very sad about yesterday’s news. I forged on and felt better for it. I only had one really green item of clothing to celebrate St. Patrick's Day and it was too good to wear to work so I wore my neon green t-shirt with a plaid green flannel overtop.
I left the house about 8 am with a thermos of coffee and a lunch packed. Today, I was working at both the Mat and the Auto shop so I would certainly be occupied. Both went well, and after helping load and unload wood for the stoves and cut up rags for future jobs, I left at 1 pm. I was excited to drive over to the Ridge again, and so was Bill who had texted me around 10:30 to see if I’d been yet. 😊

the wheelbarrow so I got my exercise today
It was nice enough outdoors to not need a coat at all
Bill also got the call from CanAm in London that our Suite was all ready for us to pick it up on Friday. Yay! Things were taking shape. It would be a long day even with our plan to get up at our normal work time and get moving. A run to Costco would also be in the plans and hope to be home in good time to get her up where she belongs. At least getting her settled on the flat area would be a relief.
|From this angle everything looks great|
So, happy with that, I lugged the gate closed again and headed to Hanover where I picked up a few groceries, a birthday gift for a 2-year old and a sympathy card for our friend. ☹ That was the only time today that the tears hit me again. Just realizing who it was for and trying still to get my head around it.

the sunshine and mild temps we're expecting
I made a quick porch/bench stop at my cousin’s place to drop off his puzzle. No point in hanging on to it when we’ll be moving everything over the next week or so. It was a beauty of a day with the sun trying to make multiple appearances but never really sticking around for long. My temperature gauge in the car read 8C/48F and it felt like it.
When I got home, I walked to pick up the mail and then across the street to the bank to make my deposit. I bumped into James from The Paisley Common and he said they will be opening tomorrow and did I notice that they got their new sign up? I hadn’t but I really like the looks of it. I’ll get a picture tomorrow. Too bad we won’t be around Friday for ordering supper there but we talked about Saturday night instead.
Bill got home around 5:30 when I was working on the puzzle. I’m making progress and sure hope to have it done before it is time to pack up! I think that is a given. 😊 We relaxed upstairs until a few minutes past 6 when I went down to reheat our ribs and potatoes from yesterday. We didn’t have the appetite last night.
|We had a good meal|
I cooked broccoli and corn in the microwave and heated gravy on the stove. Supper was good and we each had a butter tart for dessert. LOL One day things will change! Ha ha. We talked to Marilynne and after dishes called our friend, Sharon, in London to see how Derrick was doing. It’s a silly question, after having just lost his wife, but we are all concerned.
Today's memory is at Eagle's Landing RV Resort,

They have a beautiful pool and I've only been in it once
We are always there at the wrong time
November or March when it is too chilly
Good night everyone!
This was a better day and we are looking forward to the changes in our immediate future. Thank you for your condolences and support and thank you for your visit!
