On Tuesday, July 13th, Bill was able to sleep in a bit longer. They were going back to Meaford to the pizza place so Billy was picking him up today. It was around 7, I think, when I got up and got ready for work too. I fed Gibbs early and took him out before I put him in his crate. Bill was still outside waiting for his ride when I left. I met Billy at the end of the lane, said Good Morning and we went on our way.
was not bad and didn’t take any more time than my usual hour to tidy things up.
The sky was cloudy when I left home and in town, but within half hour,
the sky opened up and we got a nice shower. It was still raining lightly for my
drive home but stopped soon after. It felt humid again this morning and rain is
forecasted on and off all day. I guess I won’t be weeding/edging today. Or will I?
having my tea at home with Gibbs, the rain had stopped and seemed like perhaps
it would clear. I put him on his rope leash and worked on the small garden
right off the patio. This one never looks as good as I wish it would. I edged,
moving around on a pillow, removing more grass and dirt. Maybe it at least has straighter
lines now. 😊 Bill surprised Gibbs and I when he
and Billy pulled in just after lunch, finished what they had to do at that job.
|You can see the threat surrounds us
had us all bustling inside and then while they went up for a snooze, I went
back out in sunshine. LOL What a funny day! I managed to finish the garden and
around a few of the other plants. The hibiscus, which sure isn’t doing much,
and my flowering raspberry ‘stick with leaves’ have been tidied up as well as a
couple of the small trees. It doesn’t look so great now because our grass is so
long but it will. The mower should be home tomorrow so Bill can take care of the cutting.
inside and Bill and I printed off our Covid vaccine information to keep with us
when we head south. It is the only proof we have, at least hard copy proof,
that we were double vaccinated. I’d eaten a keto pumpkin muffin earlier with
some cream cheese but now, at 2, felt hungry again. I know, our eating habits suck!! ☹ We had some cheddar, Bill had his with crackers, and that will tie us
over until supper time.
tired, just as the sun came out and the sky broke up overhead, I went to my
recliner. I wanted to get back into my book, after a few days of neglect, but
my eyes were also heavy. I read a few chapters and then closed my eyes for a
wee doze. Bill took the opportunity to go down to the Hangar for about an hour
or so. Another neglected spot. I easily got back into my story and when he came
up around 5, we watched some NCIS before I started supper.
boneless chicken thighs in Rosy tonight. I had white rice to reheat so added
some butter to do that and cooked our individual choice of veggies in the
microwave. I’m getting used to the new settings and I’m liking our new oven
more and more all the time. There are some options I still miss, like ‘soften’
and ‘melt’ but I can live without those buttons and learn, instead, the time it
takes for each.
|We saw this a lot this evening
was good and we were eating by 6:15. Gibbs has it down to a science, that he
needs to go out and rings the bell just as our plates are set on the table. One
of us has to accept the job so tonight, I covered my plate of hot food, and took him out for a quickie. 😉 No sooner did we set foot back
inside and the sky opened up so I was grateful for that timing after all! It
felt warm inside so we are happy to have the majority of our windows of the
slant variety. No rain comes in but the fresh air does.
finished off the peanut butter pie, I’m sad for that, but they were big pieces
and if I wasn’t such a piggie, would have cut them in half for one more night.
Nope! It’s a keto pie after all so no harm in big pieces. 😊 After dishes, Bill had his shower and in between bouts of
rain, which made our satellite service disappear occasionally, we watched tv
and spent a quiet evening together. Depending on what he watched, my book was
either open or closed.
option of watching something upstairs was there for me but I do like
spending as much time as possible with my sweetie. This was a good day with my morning job done and more work outside on the gardens. Still more awaits so we’ll see
what the weather brings tomorrow. No more skunk sightings but just knowing they
are ‘present’ is enough to tick us off. Might have to borrow Gerry’s live trap
on the weekend. Another suggestion is apple cider vinegar-soaked rags to encourage
them to move on. We’ll see.
for taking the time to see what we’re up to.
