Tuesday, July 6th Bill was up before 6 and brought Gibbs back up to bed with me while he got ready for work. Our little guy is getting better at settling down up there all the time. He licked my face and that was it before stretching out, in various positions mind you, and going to sleep. He had half an eye on his Daddy downstairs but I could easily doze without worrying about him doing anything he shouldn’t. 😊
We, Gibbs and I, were up before 7 when Bill left so I fed him, took him out, crated him and went for my walk. He takes a treat once he is in there so has no problem walking in like a good boy. It was a lovely walk and I needed nothing more than my little top and shorts. I love mornings like this! I didn’t need more wildflowers but I picked a couple of the one I took a close-up picture of on Sunday. Notice how one is white and one is more of the pink shade?
Back home, I had my tea and both went online to try and see if I get our second vaccines booked at the Hanover Centre AND at the same time, phoned the number we were given for bookings. I expected a long wait on the phone so carried on with answering questions on the website. Boy, was I surprised when I was only on hold for about 2 minutes and a real person answered! She helped me get booked and both our appointments are tomorrow. Just like that!
Bill and I both received Phizer for our first jab and want that for our second one even though I know the Moderna is supposed to be just as efficient. We’ve heard of ‘some’ people getting flu like symptoms after Moderna, lasting between 1 – 3 days. We won’t know until we get there which is offered but we can choose if they offer both so I hope that is the case. We can refuse it once we’re there but I just may go with the Moderna to get it done with. We’ll see, I just don’t want to get sick. ☹
With that set up, I had a call back with the cost of repairing the few things on Bill’s Cub Cadet and told them to go ahead. It will be like a new mower when we get it back. 😊 Lastly, Bill asked me to try and see if we could get in to see our London doctor before he moves from his practice to Long Term Care. We haven’t been in for 3+ years and it would be nice to have a check up by him (and see him again) before the end of the month. At the very least, we’ll get him to send a prescription to our I.D.A. in town for Bill.
I was getting hungry by 10:30 boiled some eggs in Madame IP and cooked some bacon in our new oven. I haven’t used it more than two times since we’ve got it! Once they were ready, I had some brunch and went outside with Gibbs. We sat (he played too) in the shade of the awning at the patio table. Yesterday, I gave him one of the stuffed dogs that I got from China. You know those advertised ones that are supposed to move like a real dog? Yah right. Stuffed toy is all they are. If Gibbs starts tearing it apart, no worries, I got my $ back for the rip off.
It is another hot, muggy day so I’m glad I walked early and don’t plan on doing much outside today in the way of chores. At one point, I went out and raked the area where we are trying to grow grass, just off the patio edge. With the impending showers we are ‘supposed’ to get tonight, either Bill or I will spread some of the new grass seed we’ve purchased The old seed did do some germinating but there are still patches. We brought that seed from London, I think!
So, while waiting for a call back from the doctor on their weird hours, I sat with my book for a bit. I had a restless sleep last night and when I did sleep, I dreamt a lot. I had my window beside me open and one at the foot of the bed open but I think I was just hot. I don’t know how much reading will get done, my eyes tend to control that progression. I managed pretty well, getting through a few chapters and only closed my eyes for a few spurting minutes. 😊
Gibbs sat with me for a while, being partly lovey and partly squirmy, and at 4 I made my tea and we went outside. No sooner did I get outside to the shade by the trees when I heard Bill coming up the lane. He sat with us out there for 15 minutes or so while we caught up. I did hear back from our doctor’s office but they are not seeing patients for physical checkups any more. That is unfortunate, we really would have loved to see him. She did send us the bloodwork requisitions though so that at least can be done.

When we came in at 4:30, out of the 29C/86F heat, the a/c was so refreshing. Tomorrow will be a complete switch with a high of only 18C/72F and rain. Oh well, we’ll be ready with new grass seed spread. For supper, I’d thought cheeseburgers so I was outside grilling before 6. Bill got things ready inside and cooked the bacon in our new oven. They were delicious and I easily talked myself into having the bun. LOL Cheesecake for dessert but that was wise since it is keto. 😊
This has been a good day. I feel that not only did I get exercise with my walk, but I accomplished a fair bit with the phone calls I made. After dishes, Bill went out to do a couple of small things at the Hangar and to spread the seed. Then, at 8, we sat together and watched Leap Year with Amy Adams. It was a nice movie for the evening.
