Bill was up and off to work before 7:30 on Wed. Aug. 25th and Gibbs and I trekked on down the lane for our walk. He was really strutting along and I tried to slow him down. Already, it was 22C/72F and I didn’t want him worn out before we got to the corner!
The sky was pretty this morning, but mostly covered in patchy clouds.
We made it to Turbine Lane today so I was proud of the little guy. We both walked slower on the return trip. He was funny, obviously trying to cool off, as he would alternate between the road and the long grass.
I’m sure it felt cool on his newer sleek body. 😊 Back home, I had my tea and only once did I go out for any reason other than to take him out. I closed windows in the Bunky and put the chair cushions away. We were forecasted to get a thunder storm of some kind.
Inside, I vacuumed the Suite and then got my dusting mitt out and did the entertainment centre and coffee table on the main floor. We talked last night about putting Gibbs’s crate away in the basement so I thought I’d tackle that now. Once I figured out how to fold it, I put it away. I did that before I got the vacuum out. Then, I had to decide what to do with the remainder of my day. Aha! A puzzle would be a great idea.
From under the bed, I got the puzzle mat out and found a seemingly easy 500 pc. puzzle to work on at the kitchen table. I figured, I could roll it up for meals etc. Well, I was mistaken! This puzzle is a cute picture BUT there are no borders. It isn’t square so I had my work cut out for me. Not to be bested by a ‘game’, I determined to get started.
Gibbs was really good this afternoon although he couldn’t seem to settle down. Usually he sleeps a lot of the afternoon in between needing to go out each time he moves. Today, he just followed me around while I abandoned the puzzle for an hour and made 6 ramekins of IP custard. Bill arrived home around 3:30, while it was cooking, and soon stretched out in his chair to watch NCIS. Gibbs actually rested with him so I continued onto the puzzle.
At one point after lunch, Gibbs and I had walked down to get the mail. My new laptop adaptor arrived, not expected until Aug. 30 to Sept. 8th, so once again Amazon gets my vote! 😊 Bill bbq’d a couple of pork chops for supper, thin ones, the only kind I like. I made mashed potatoes and mixed veggies for a side dish.
We had to gently set the placemats on top of the puzzle to eat but it worked. These pieces do not go together very well so I had no intention of rolling the mat, as I’d planned. For dessert, we had a custard each and it was good as well as our main meal.
After dishes, we relaxed further into the evening watching America’s Got Talent and I worked on my blog. It was an incredibly hot day and we were wise to stay inside. I had no guilt about that at all and Bill agreed that it was a good place for us to be. The humidex reached 38C/100F. This was a good day.
