On Sunday, Aug. 29th we were surprised that we slept in until 7. That goes for Gibbs too! Obviously, we’d had a good sleep. 😉 By the time we got up and made the bed, I decided not to go for a walk. Sorry, Gibbs. Bill informed me that the day was going to be another hot and humid one even though it looked quite cloudy. We went about our day with no real plans in mind.

Bill was too frustrated to go back to working on the pump, we just can’t figure it out. Now, he has it working again, the pump seems to be keeping its prime but instead of shutting down after building pressure, it looks like it is letting water go back down into the pipe. Something is definitely different than the other day when it worked perfectly and we are at a loss. I didn’t really want him spending hours on it again today all for naught. He'll get it figured out, eventually.
We had an earlier breakfast than usual, a Sunday fare of bacon and eggs, and then I did a couple of updates on my phone and laptop. I also splurged and went into Bill’s Atlas for Men site and ordered myself a couple of things. From that you can tell that it isn’t just ‘for men’. 😊 He has ordered a lot of really nice pieces of clothing from this Canadian company and we haven’t had a problem with anything so I thought I'd try. I love how he is branching out and getting into more summer colours.
|After breakfast, we had a porch visitor|

Bill and Gibbs had their snooze around noon and by then we had closed windows and turned the a/c on again. We should get relief from the heat this week and will be able to cut back on our power/hydro usage. We’re curious about the bill for the month of August. We’ve used air conditioning more this summer than we have in the last 20 years! Times seem to be a-changing.
|"Are you getting this?" he asks.|
Bill went out to his Hangar, he said he had some cleanup to do and until it got too hot down there, he would putter away. I didn’t really know what to get into this afternoon so just puttered. I’m debating getting my cross stitch out again, something to work at inside. I believe that I am feeling after effects of pulling the vine on Friday. My right bicep is achy when I lift my arm. I did some stretching exercises this morning to relieve what seems to be my sciatica nerve and this new pain. LOL

Isn’t age wonderful? Well, again I say that it is better than the alternative so yah, I guess it is pretty great. 😊 The clouds are constantly changing positions in the sky so we are seeing white fluffies one minute but lots of blue sky in the background. Bill had some water leftover in the bladder in the back of the truck so he put what he could in the Suite freshwater tank and it took all of it, so that topped us right to the 100%.

down by the Hangar in the shade
Our supper was bbq’d sirloin steak and a potato with vegetables. A lovely Sunday night meal. We were also ‘topped’ up and didn’t need dessert tonight. I did the dishes while Bill finished up outside. He also rinsed the bladder with bleach, since that hasn’t been done yet this summer. These bladders that we have bought sure pay for themselves with us living up here on the Ridge. The amount of water toted from the Acreage is unbelievable!
|I also just wanted to get a few pictures|
on my phone
|Looks a bit disgruntled but he really|
did enjoy the outdoors with Mom
|So much so that he fell asleep on his pillow|
|A really nice supper|
This was a wonderful relaxing day. I got a lot of my book read outside sitting in the shade with Gibbs. Bill got some things cleaned up in his Hangar and we even took time to peruse some Quartzsite parks. Dreaming, that’s what we’re doing.
Update: Bill has tomorrow off, yay!

As I finish this at 8:20 pm, the sky is now black with clouds
with the occasional flash of lightning and the rumble of thunder
