On Tuesday, July 20th we are able to report that Gibbs slept with us for the whole of last night. 😊 He went to bed with us at 11:30 and slept until Bill got up at 6. Now that is an accomplishment in our favour. Some of you may not think so but Bill and I have room in our king bed and rather enjoy the puppy cuddles. The crate is still where he will go when we go to work or go away for any significant amount of time without him, but he seems to sleep well with us now. Yay!
Bill left for work and Gibbs and I saw him off in Black Beauty, back to normal. The day was gearing up to be another hot, humid one and although I didn’t check the temperature, I knew it was now or never to go for a walk. I put Gibbs in his crate and headed out, down the lane and past Turbine Lane to the gravel pit gate. It was a lovely morning with the only sun I saw covered in a hazy blur. It was still so pretty.
Before I came inside the Suite, I filled the watering can three times and watered the vegetables up on the hill and all of my potted plants. I’m glad to have it done before I disturb Gibbs. The tomatoes are doing well but I’m kind of bummed that the peppers are on the hot side. Not fiery but warm. Darn! I didn’t choose well there, did I? Inside, I had my tea and sat to finish my blog posting from yesterday.
The heat and humidity kept rising and other than when we were in the shade on the patio, which Gibbs wanted to do a lot, it was too hot to be doing anything out there. I took my Think Pad out to the table and worked on it with him at my feet. He was happy and I was happy. 😊

While he remained out on his rope leash, I dust mopped and wet mopped our floors. Norwex to the rescue! I am finding it so easy to do the floors now that they will be washed more often – what is going on? Ha ha. With that done, I brought Gibbs in and I went upstairs to purge my closet (again). With Ladyfest next week, it is a good opportunity to get rid of some things that I haven’t worn since last summer. Once more, I felt that I did really good, overfilling my large Ikea bag.
I’m not saying that I won’t be bringing anything home, we will be visiting Value Village and The Mission Store while together, but I’m getting more judgmental on what I’ll wear and what I want. Bill doesn’t agree but we all have our thing and mine is clothes, I guess. The bed was covered in clothes so I carried on and set out my clothes to pack as well.

They stared at me walking by for a long time
We stay at my sister’s home in Chatsworth and we eat out every night. Packing is much easier now than it used to be because we used to (years ago) go to Montreal and go to more places and dress up more. So, less planning now which is good in one way but sad in another since it means our age is slowing us down and a change of clothes doesn’t happen as often. 😉
So, with 3 jobs done, I packed my clothes and lugged the giveaways out to the Bunky until then. Back inside, Gibbs and I went upstairs to have a snooze. He slept and I watched an old tv show that I used to watch. Do you remember The Match Game? It was entertaining for about an hour when Donna texted that they were planning to stop in for about half hour. That’s nice, they’d finished spreading the gravel for their new trailer at the Acreage so stopped in before heading home.
Bill came in about 4:30, I think, and we all sat together for awhile discussing their new home. The old one is gone and the new one should be delivered within a day or two. They are excited and we are for them too. Gibbs was typically excited too but more for the company than the new trailer. 😊 Eventually he’d slowed down, just in time for his Daddy to walk in.
For supper, I planned on fish and chips since the rain that dumped on us around 4:15 may return. Wouldn’t you know that it would rain after I watered? Murphy’s Law? The sky to the north especially was looking pretty gray but the rain and thunder seems to have moved on. Both Bill and Gibbs fell asleep while I wrote my blog and we turned the a/c off and let the cooler air in through the open windows. What a change! We must be in Ontario!
Supper was good. Bill had the chips with his fish and I had 5 fries and a cob of corn with mine. It was good. We didn’t need dessert. Gibbs chose supper time to ring the bell so since he’d been out already a few times, I put him on the rope leash so he could play surveyance on the property while we ate. He’s good at that.
We cleaned up dishes and enjoyed the evening together. The temperature has changed exponentially since 3 pm so it will be a good night for sleeping again.
