On Saturday, Apr. 3rd I woke up happy that Bill was going to be home for another couple of days. Oh, I’m quite capable and content to get through days without him home BUT he works hard and it has been pressing on him to get some things done around home too. So, having 4 days off in a row is a big help. He’ll be back to work on Monday and be happy for that as well.
Each day, we accomplish things, even if they’re small things. This morning, he tried again to see how easy it would be to move some of the gravel; he’s very anxious to get our new shelter/shed up. Once it is up, things can be moved out of the storage/garden shed into it AND things from the Hangar can be moved into the garden shed. It’s a fluid motion that all hinges on the gravel and framework.

The weather today is an improvement but the wind is still chilly. First thing I did when we got up was bundle up and go for my walk. I probably didn’t need my 2 layered long coat today as I was plenty warm. I did need the flannel scarf and hood, however. 😊 I was walking facing the south winds again and as I turned back, it was better but still cold at my neck. I’m glad I went, if I’d sat for a tea, I would have talked myself out of it.
Back at home, I had my tea. I’d taken a clementine with me on my walk and that was tasty. Bill had to come in to reset his satellite/tv to bring the channels in, now that we got the connection. He worked in his Hangar, out of the wind, on putting his new router table together and could watch or listen to it in the background. I dragged the two very heavy bags of clothes etc. in from the Bunky and set to sorting up on the bed.

Only the really nice stuff will go to BizyBee auctions. They will put them in lots and offer them on their online site. The remaining, not so nice (but still good) items will go to The Mission Store or Value Village. Now, with the lockdown, they probably won’t be taking donations until May. Darn! That means hanging on to those for a while. ☹ I carted the donation stuff back out to the Bunky but there isn’t much I can do out there until we have more space for things. The boxed shelter is out there.
I visited Bill and we were surprised how the sun, when it appeared, warmed the day up. If it wasn’t for the wind, we’d both be puttering outside. I mentioned bird feeders and he was kind enough to climb over things to get me the two visible ones. Yay!

The birds are out there, searching, so hopefully this will bring them around a bit more. I’ve seen chickadees but mostly it’s red-wing blackbirds and robins galore! Our first day here, a blue jay visited briefly but haven’t seen him since.
Inside, I heated up some tomato soup for Bill and I, even though he’d eaten some toast earlier, I was hungry. I had some cheese and a few crackers along with it. For supper, I think we’ll just have burgers since it will be a big meal tomorrow for Easter Sunday. After I did the dishes, I sat with my book. Not surprising to me, I had finished it by 4. It was a real page turner and although a totally different story than his usual, I’m sure Bill will enjoy it too.
I turned the tv on and found the old movie, Beetlejuice. What fun! It has been a really long time since I’ve seen this. Weird seeing Alec Baldwin so young, it doesn’t even look like him! Bill came up from the Hangar before 5 and wasn’t interested in my movie so went upstairs to watch something different. It is so nice that we can both be comfortable watching a tv. 😊
At 5:30, I started frying hamburgers for supper. It is so messy inside but right now we don’t have a choice. They turned out really good and I made the choice to have mine in a tortilla wrap rather than a bun. It was just as messy, eating it, but I have no complaints.
|I enjoyed mine in a tortilla and a few less carbs 😁|
For dessert, Bill and I had a piece of cheesecake. Yum, another success with more for another few nights. After dishes, we settled in for the night.
The sun came out in full form around 4 and the winds have finally died down a bit. The temperature reached 8C/48F today and the sun set as per usual. It is almost more exciting when there are clouds in which to make its demise pop! This was a good day. Bill got a few things done down in his Hangar and I managed a few things up here too. I’ve found another James Patterson book to move on to but it might be movie night here in the Richards’ household. 😊
Thank you for stopping around.
