On Thursday, Sept. 16th (mid-month!!!) Bill was up and off to work by 7:30. I didn’t have to go anywhere until later. I had my tea and sat with Gibbs. At 8:45, I drove over to M’s and actually met him at our corner. We were taking his GMC Acadia to his repair guy on Edges Sideroad for front brake rotors. I drove him back to his place and we hopped in his pick up and went for more skids. It took two loads but he ended up with a lot of wood.
In his second bay, I began hand sanding around the windows of a customer’s Ford van. It would be his winter project with a final full paint job in the warmer spring. There is a fair bit of sanding to do plus M says a replacement rocker panel on the passenger side is needed. 😊 Listen to me as if I know so much! In this case, I do know what he means. I worked until noon and then came home to let Gibbs out and have some lunch.
We spent the hour together and I went back over at 1 for another hour of sanding. It was going pretty well. At 2, I took him back to pick up his SUV and drove home for the remainder of the afternoon. Before sitting with my book, because I knew it is now getting hard to put down, I got the vacuum out and chased Gibbs around the Suite. You’d think that was my purpose since as I cleaned, he ran and played tag with me. Or was it hide and seek? 😊
We eventually were able to relax and wait for Daddy to come home. With windows and the screen door open, Gibbs watched the birds and listened to the traffic so I put him on his rope until Bill drove up the lane.
For supper, I bbq’d steak with a cut up potato to share. I’d made a garden salad earlier so while I grilled the meal, Bill got the table set. The steak was quite tasty and I guess I didn’t do too badly with my skills. I don’t do steak often!
After dishes, we had a few ins and outs with Gibbs and we spent a relatively quiet evening together. This was a good day, earning some $$ and it felt good to get into the body work for a few hours. Gibbs continues to impress with his ‘house sitting’ skills too. 😊 Bill turned on one of my very favourite movies at 8. PS, I Love You is long with all the commercials but I'll try to stay awake.
Thank you for taking the time to see what we’re up to! Comments are always welcome.
