On Wednesday, Apr. 21st I was up first. No alarm and no reason to be up to go anywhere, but I’d been awake for an hour. Bill was still sleepy and remained in bed for another 20 minutes or so. I’d crawled into bed around 10 last night, not being able to keep my eyes open any longer, so I don’t know when he joined me. Today, another cold, wintry day, 0C/32F but feeling like -11C/-7F with the strong winds.

Luckily, again, no white precipitation present. Later on, we spotted the odd flake blowing around but hardly worth mentioning. The day consisted of a couple of trips to town. Bill went first, right after his first coffee, to get a propane bottle filled. I went second to pick up a prescription for him that I’d ordered on line. I also needed greeting cards and the I.D.A. was the only option for those. 😊 The air in town was noticeably warmer but only because of our location on the top of a hill.

The rest of the day was lounging, internet surfing and Bill messed around with our Dimplex fireplace. It worked properly for a while after we got it back from CanAm last summer but soon was back to its old trick of not shutting off. He wanted to measure it and get some information so he could address the issue with the manufacturer. We spoke to my daughter, Bridgette, at one point and made a couple of other related phone calls. I was deeply involved in my book, soon to finish it while Bill was on the phone. I’m sure I'll be done soon, it’s hard to put down.

We’d had bacon and eggs on toast around 11:30 and that held us over until supper. I did have a cup of creamy tea around 3:30 as per usual. Needless to say, I was starving by 5. Speaking of supper, I used Madame IP to saute ground beef, mushrooms and onions before adding sauce and noodles on top. Rolls in the oven for 15 minutes and the IP on Manual for 8 and we were eating a nice hot winter spaghetti supper. Geesh, I’m ready for spring, aren’t you?

Thank you for popping in.
