On Saturday, July 10th, it was go-go-go right from the minute we got up at 7:30. I went for my walk and Bill and Gibbs went to the Acreage for water. I had a wonderful 2-mile walk, there was no wind and the sky was clear blue. It was a cool 10C/52F overnight but this morning by 7:30, it was perfect for a walk and I enjoyed it.
I had my tea when I returned and Bill wasn’t long after me with a bladder of water to empty into the Suite tank. While that was happening, Bill started getting things ready for his next project. I'm not spoiling it for him, he will post about it eventually. I had planned to go up on the berm to weed but when he said he’d cut up the white pipe for me, I worked on edging and weeding the garden by the Bunky instead. The white pipe won’t prevent weeds from getting in there but it will accentuate where the weed trimmer can go. 😊

Gibbs helped – well, I say that tongue in cheek. Bill and I decided since we were going to be outside all day, together, we’d let the little guy run free. We like that he’s used to a leash/rope but we also like to get him used to his own area and see how well he sticks close to us/home. Long story short, he did exceptionally well! We didn’t worry about where he was because he was always in sight, for one of us.
He ran back and forth between us, we were doing different jobs, and never stopped for a minute. Puppy energy, I’d love to figure out how to harvest that!! When he came back from the Acreage with Bill, he’d looked like a rug rat. The dew on the grass, here and there, was heavy and he was quite soaked from his tummy to the tips of his toes. Lordy o’ Lordy. I didn’t let him in the house until he was dry. No biggie, he didn’t want to be indoors anyway.

We made a quick trip over to the Acreage for another bladder of water and went right back to work when we got home. Finally, at 5:30, I left Bill to it while I started supper. We had steak and potatoes on the Weber and I did veggies inside. While the potatoes cooked, I had a shower which felt great. We’d unplugged this morning for the first time in a couple of weeks and took advantage of the nice day, 24C/78F, and the solar panels.
Gibbs also helped Daddy, and ran back and forth
between us to see that we were both okay

He took a lot of shade breaks which I was glad of Here's a better look so you can see where he is
Supper was delicious and we had a piece of peanut butter pie for dessert. Gibbs was still very tired and did not give the usual reaction when I mentioned the word ‘supper’ and put his food dish on the counter.
I think he would have appreciated it if I’d delivered it to him as he lay there under the table. Finally, he moved to get his meal and walked down the hill with Daddy for his piddle. Still, no leash and he was behaving quite well.
After dishes, Bill got washed up and we got ready to go to the Acreage for a campfire. It should be a perfect night after a perfect day. I hope you enjoyed your Saturday too.
