Wednesday, June 30th – hump day – stage 2 begins and the month ends. It was an odd start to the day. We couldn’t tell if it would rain or not. As it turned out, it was more spitting and mistiness than anything substantial. Good, we’ve had enough rain for a few days. Billy arrived at 7:30 to pick Bill and the trailer up. They were back at Meaford today to finish up.
I had a
free day to do with as I pleased with only one morning run into town on the
agenda. After my tea was done, Gibbs went in his crate and I drove to Foodland
for milk, yogourt and bread. The main reason for my drive into Durham was to
pick up my kiddie’s pool at Home Hardware. It fit into the back of Ptooties and
that is where it still is. I’ll bring it out tomorrow and put it in the Bunky.
than that trip to town, we, Gibbs and I, hung out inside. The day was
definitely cooler, at 23C/74F but the humidity was still pretty high around
95%. When the air outside seemed cool, it was mostly cloudy all day, I opened
windows and then when it felt too cool, closed them. What weird weather we’re
having. I was concentrating on my needlepoint and Gibbs was in and out, watching
the critters and birds.
waiting for a couple of parcels and when one turned out to be a total
disappointment (not at all what I ordered), I hoped my Norwex order would show
up. When Gibbs and I walked to the mailbox, Billy and Bill pulled up to the end
of the lane. As a family, the 3 of us walked up together so Billy didn’t have
to turn in with the trailer on behind.
It was a
treat to have Bill home early and even more of a joy when Gibbs went upstairs
and had a ‘snooze’ with him. That was Clemson’s gig and we both loved it when
he wanted to sleep with us. We’re hoping this will become a practice for this
little guy too. They slept for at least an hour and then joined me downstairs.
I could tell Bill was happy. We will use the word ‘snooze’ over and over again
so Gibbs gets used to it.
At 5:30 a
white van pulled up the lane and it was FedEx with my Norwex box. It contained
my order, Pat’s and Cathy’s order so I had some sorting to do. Because I
received hostess gifts that I didn’t specifically order, it would be confusing
without the ladies’ receipts. I got a whole mess of cool stuff and I can’t wait
to try it. Yay!
supper, I cooked boneless, skinless chicken thighs in Rosy and fried Bill’s
leftover potatoes on the stove. We had mixed vegetables as our side dish and I
cut up some tomato. Daddy used to like tomatoes with his meal so maybe that is
where I get it. 😊 While I cleaned up dishes, Bill went
out and cut 1/3 of the grass on the property. The patio and berm areas look
much better now. We moved the lawn furniture back in place.
Gibbs out for a walk, we let him run free with his leash dragging behind him.
He has so much energy and didn’t go far from us. It felt quite stuffy inside
and even though the windows were open and the air was cooler outside, there was
no breeze coming in. I turned the a/c back on and it didn’t take long to cool
things down inside. Bill and I watched one of the ‘interesting’ shows we enjoy
together, Dr. Pimple Popper. It would gross many out but we are amazed at how
this little doctor fixes people’s lives.

upstairs at 9 to watch one of his car shows, Gibbs fell asleep and I wrote my
blog. Pictures will happen tomorrow after I clean. There was another episode of
D.P.P. on until 10 so I watched it downstairs. This was a great day even though
I didn’t get into too much. I hope you got some relief from the heat and the
rain in your area.
