Bill was up and out the door by 7 on Tuesday, May the 4th be with you! Yah, I’m sure you’ve heard that many times. It is another cloudy, wet day. It is getting tiring. My arms are turning into wings and my feet have webbed toes! Almost. Grumble grumble, I know. We got spoiled in March, as my sister says, with a good bit of weather.
|The kind of day|
Oh well, look on the positive! We are alive and healthy here, sheltered in a beautiful rv, with food and everything else we need out here in the country. Plus! We have nature surrounding us at all angles. There, I feel much happier. I left the house at 7:20 and got to the end of the laneway when I remembered that I forgot (?) the empty water bottle. It’s good practice to back up the lane so that’s what I did, using my mirrors. 😊
The Mat was empty the whole time I was there, yay! I was able to move quickly and get everything done within 45 minutes. After getting the bottle filled, I drove home in the rain spatters. Not enough for the wipers to go full but enough to get you wet if you were outside in it. At least the temperatures are pretty mild at 10C/50F. The sun would sure b nice but that ‘ain’t’ gonna happen!
I made my tea and sat and perused the 3 (!!) open auctions. Yes, there are 3 in our neck of the woods, or at least close enough to pick up from and they begin closing on the 5th, 6th & the last one on the 7th. I’ve put bids in on a couple of the auctions but I know in the last day I’ll probably lose out. It’s all part of the fun. I’m also watching the items Bill and I have put in for consignment but the clothing is never a guarantee to sell. At least it is out of our place.
What to do on another wet day. Hmm? First off, before noon, I made another large batch of Broccoli Cheddar Soup. I loved it so much and having it in the fridge for easy lunches was wonderful. This time, I used more mozzarella cheese than I did last time because it was my only choice. That means a stringier soup but it is only me who will eat it and I love cheese. I’ll get through it with no problem. 😊

I put the dishes in the sink to wash but the water needed to cool a bit so I started writing my post for today. I also began a grocery list for Costco. Just in the nick of time too! We are going to run out of our coffee pods for the Keurig tomorrow or Thursday and it just so happens we have to go to London tomorrow. Bonus! It helps us to take care of a couple of things we need to do and Costco and a CanAm visit are two of those things.
The day will go fast making for an exhausting one but we always enjoy the trip. Since it is going to be another wet day, we aren’t missing much here at home. We’ve both taken the day off work. At 1:30, I put in a dvd of Sex in the City episodes from Season 6. I used to watch these a lot and they also always bring a chuckle. Sometimes more like a good belly laugh. As soon as I got settled, I heard a vehicle door. Bill was home.
That is too funny! I thought ‘as soon as I start watching something, he will come home’ but then dismissed that since it was so early in the day. Don’t get me wrong, it is always nice when he comes home earlier than expected but it just gave me a laugh. He had a parcel from the mailbox, for himself, so I paused my show to watch as he modelled some new clothes. Very nice! It’s a new vendor that we received a catalogue for a couple of weeks ago. We’ll order from them again.
He went upstairs, quite happily, for a snooze and to watch some of his own stuff. At 4:30, I began making supper. Something new. Stuffed peppers in Madame IP. It is quite the ritual but as long as they taste good, I don’t mind the prep time and work. Now, what to have along with them? They are huge so pretty much a meal in themselves. I decided on mixed vegetables.
They were so filling and so delicious! I’ve never made stuffed peppers before so it was a bonus to have them turn out so well. We didn’t need dessert. 😊 After dishes, we watched Jeopardy! and then at 8, we watched NCIS. Today, while I was watching my dvd’s, I continued working on the ‘it’ll never get done’ crochet project that I started over the winter in Paisley. Funny, there, sitting on the bed, after 2 lengthy rows, I’d had enough. Today, with a tv in front of me, I easily finished 8 rows. I’ll keep it here beside my chair and maybe it WILL get done!
This was a pretty quiet day for me, a short one for Bill and a dull, damp wet one for May. I'm happy to say that it was still a good one.
Thanks for stopping in.
