Monday, Mar. 22nd, Bill was up and out for his work by 6:30. I am getting anxious about moving so decided to get up as well. I had my blog to finish downloading pictures into so wanted to take care of that. The walk schedule has kind of gone out the window since Friday – too bad, since now is the nicest weather we’ve had! Oh well, priorities!
I had my
tea, finished my blog and started packing clothes, bathroom stuff etc. etc. and
then lugged them downstairs in multiple trips. I will be happy to not have the
stairs once we move, it is up and down for everything and we’re getting too old
for that! Unfortunately, on the first armload going down, I must have twisted
to check the stair below me and pulled something in my right side. Crap!
on, not giving in and got a lunch made with ingredients for an afternoon drink to
take along. Creamer and yogourt for the fridge, coffee pods and tea bags, just
in case. I planned on staying the whole day and then meet Bill at our accountant’s
office in Durham at 4 pm. On the way into Durham, I changed my plans from what
I’d earlier thought. Jell-o jiggles often in our lives, doesn’t it?
|This was my first outside glimpse of the sun
at the Mat and did my cleaning then rather than going in around 2:30 to do it.
That way, I didn’t have to think about it while I puttered around the Ridge. 😉 When it was spiffy, I had no customers today to distract me,
I drove to the country. Each day the pond ice melts a bit more and each day our
geese are there to greet me, honking hello. Bill had time before work this
morning and since he is in the area, he stopped to drop off some of his hobby
I try to enjoy things in my present situation and location in life
no matter where I am so I am admitting that I will miss
some of the views along my 50 minute drive from Paisley to Durham
I've come to like Concession 8 😄
man, he texted me a picture of ‘Sunrise at the Ridge’. It was a beautiful day,
with temperatures rising quickly to 16C/64F. Full blue sky and warm sunshine
warmed things up nicely, even with the winds. I continued unloading and getting
everything into the Suite but couldn’t deny that my side was getting worse. I
was ticked off at myself because I had planned on these two days of getting a
lot of things moved from Paisley.
I stopped and took some pain pills, ate my lunch, had a coffee and sat in my
recliner (aaahh) with my book and a heating pad. I need to get back into the
groove of conserving battery/solar power as I didn’t even think that we weren’t
plugged in to electric. We were only on the inverter, using our solar panels
for energy. We didn’t want to turn the power on until we are completely moved
up here. Woops!
it helped and I was able to finish most of what I’d gone there to do today.
Things will be a little disorganized and upside down for a few days while we
find where things go and probably get rid of some stuff that we’ve done without
over the last 6 months. At 3, I stopped working and took my book outside to sit
in the sun for half hour, setting my timer for 35 minutes when I got up and
locked the doors and drove to Durham.
|Not much snow left on the berm now
We want to dump some gravel here so hopefully
by the weekend, things will be ready
just before Bill by about 1 minute and I saw him drive by. We weren’t in the
office long and were out and on our way home. Our Income Tax is now complete
and we learned something from Tim that we didn’t know before. Bill followed me
today and we were home by 5 or shortly after. I hadn’t planned much exciting
for supper but Bill was happy with the suggestion of mini sausages and
|If you look in my mirror, Black Beauty wasn't far behind
while I worked on finishing the puzzle and made supper. It was good for being a breakfast meal! After
dishes, he came upstairs to do some banking and I packed boxes and reusable shopping
bags. Most cupboards are empty and I got everything loaded in Ptooties for
another day of moving. By the time Bill came down, I had packed the puzzle away
and folded up our 6’ table. He can load it and our folding lawn chairs in the
truck in the morning.
almost there! My back didn’t bother me again for the rest of the day so that
was a minor blip. Thank goodness. This was a successful day and I got a lot
done. Bill is working not far from Durham in Varney so nice and close for a few
days to pop in with stuff too.
|Today's memory is last year, Mar. 22nd
and it looks like even more snow and ice on the turtle pond
than this year

Two years in a row, let's not make this a habit!!
good night folks!
