On Tuesday, May 11th, you must know when I make that statement that I am being totally sarcastic. We’ve had so many wet, cloudy, cool days lately that when we get a sunny one, it will be like drinking a few margaritas! We’ll be giddy as heck. Well, I will be for sure!
Bill was up early to the bathroom and took Gibbs out for his first piddle. He brought him up to our bed at 5 but I was still tired and all Gibbs wants to do is play and nibble on our fingers and faces. He put him back in his crate and rejoined me in bed until 6 when he got up again for work. He seems to think after being in his crate all night that the bed means playtime. Well, it is but not for puppies. 😊
After my sweetie left, I made my tea and sat at my laptop. It isn’t a nice day out there at all, windy and a cool 2C with the odd pouches of rain. My desire for being outside for any length of time has gone out the window right now so I’m really looking forward to Thursday when sunshine is ‘promised’. Gibbs was out for a run around and his business and I fed him at 9. He sure is feeling good, gobbled it right up.
Around 7:30 I called my daughter. Today is her birthday and I knew that she works from home these days so wouldn’t be driving anywhere.
We had a nice chit chat again and it sounds like her sweetie is spoiling her right and proper too! 😊 After our catch-up conversation, we said goodbye and I called my step-daughter. Today is also her birthday – 14 years apart.
He slept and played and slept some more in his bed for a couple of hours giving me the opportunity to bake some healthy desserts for us. I found a recipe for Keto Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bars and a Keto Peanut Butter Pie so they were my challenges this morning. I was finished by 11 and that made me appreciate getting up at 6:30. The day was still young. They are both in the fridge and/or freezer, looking quite tasty.

I started my blog and then sat in my chair with my crocheting. That is one good thing about the cool weather, it is getting closer and closer to being something. LOL It was after my blog was written last night that we had a lovely phone call from our Illinois friends. We met Ken and Nancy our first year (2012) in Silver Lake, MI at Silver Creek RV Resort but didn’t really get to know them.

The second year, we camped across from each other. This was our second trip with our 2011 29’ 5th wheel Cougar. They had their Frontier travel trailer. We had Clemson, they had 2 boxers. We got along well and planned a yearly meetup by booking our sites close to each other a year in advance. 😊 It seemed that each year after, we all had a different RV .

The third year, 2014, we met them with our 2010 35’ Jayco Designer, they had a Windjammer travel trailer. See the pattern? We were very much alike! My recollections and pictures of our journeys together make me smile and even laugh. We’d talked a lot in our weeks spent together each year as well as over the phone from our home bases.
In August 2015, we arrived with our new home, our current Model Suite and Black Beauty. Were we surprised when they pulled in after us with a brand new Grand Design Solitude 5th wheel!
The connections continued and we enjoyed our new friendship. We traveled to Michigan one more summer to meet our friends and this year, we each had the same trailers but their son and daughter-in-law joined us with their White Hawk travel trailer. Rick and Amy stayed for just a few days.
At noon hour, Gibbs and I went out again to take care of business and he was rewarded with a treat. When he came inside, he was wandering looking for something to get into so I had to stomp my feet a few times to distract him. Gosh, he’s so darn cute! I made a coffee and had a nibble of cheese and pepperonis. I’d had a bowl of cereal with strawberries earlier so wasn’t too hungry.
The sky is getting darker, heavier with clouds as the afternoon wears on. The wind isn’t dying down any either so it is a good choice to stay inside except for the little guys business. I’m glad we found him, it is giving me a responsibility that gets me up and out for a purpose on a day when I have no desire to move! 😊 Of course, that isn’t the only reason. In his bed, Gibbs continued to sleep in many contortions. We laugh because Clemson never ever slept on his back when he hung his head over the edge.
When the little guy finally moved, at each time he moves after a sleep, we go out. We have a little bell hanging on the door as a few have suggested this as a way to teach him to tell us when he has a need to piddle. Gibbs isn’t quite getting the hang of that but we are persistent and will do our best to have him touch it when we take him out. Yes, we’ve had a few little accidents and some ‘no-no half accidents’ but no, we don’t really want to have piddle mats in the Suite as I believe that encourages him to go in the house.
It was a lazy day and there’s no better proof of that then my pictures of L.J. Gibbs. I made my afternoon tea around 4:30 and Bill was home by 5.
Supper tonight was sloppy Joe’s for Bill and sloppy cauliflower rice for me. I’ve eaten quite a few carbs recently so thought tonight I’d go easy on them. Gibbs indicated that he wanted up on Bill’s lap in a subtle way (something we want to encourage) for their naps so I started supper around 5:30.

We heard a noise outside and it was FedEx dropping off my Wayfair parcel. Yay! There are still a few more things to come over the next few days. Supper turned out to be very tasty and it was also an easy meal. For dessert we each had one of my newly baked keto cookie bars. Another success. With dishes done and Bill’s lunch made, the evening was ours to enjoy. I worked on my blog and we watched NCIS at 8.
This was a really lazy day for Gibbs and I but we enjoyed the time together with no distractions. 😉

Maybe this is the start of something special 💗
Good night y'all!
Thank you for your visit.
