On Monday Sept. 6th we didn’t have anywhere to be. *sigh* nice feeling on a ‘holiday’. I got up at 6:30 to take Gibbs out for a change so Bill could try for a few more winks of sleep. I knew he’d stayed up until midnight watching the end of The Blind Side. I crashed at 9:30, knowing that I wouldn’t make it. 😊
Strange sky to start
Oh, look! Our inverhuron momento from 2013
got caught in this photo 😂
But the sun was there between the clouds Daddy and Gibbs stayed in bed a little longer
but someone kept his eyes on me downstairs
So, Gibbs and Bill stayed in bed for another half hour or so and I went about making my tea. No walk this morning, it had rained a fair bit overnight and the precipitation wasn’t finished yet. The sky was hard to read again and I didn’t want to get out on the road with Gibbs and get wet by the next rain shower. Instead, we all just chilled for the morning. There weren’t any plans for the day.
It wasn’t exactly cool this morning and by late afternoon it had warmed up considerably. We started out with the furnace to take the chill/dampness out of the Suite but soon turned it off. Bill went down to the Hangar and spent a couple of hours doing his hobby stuff. I’m sure he has really enjoyed his 5 days off in a row, I don’t have to ask him. He’s accomplished a few different things on his list of things to do. 😊
I thought I might get back at my cross stitch but after I made him an omelette sandwich at 12:30, I decided to make a cheesecake. Something ‘non-carb’ for desserts. I don’t like ice cream being our only choice. With the cheesecake in the fridge, Gibbs and I spent a lot of leisure time in my chair. For some reason, he was really being lovable (in between going out every hour!).
I read, he cuddled and slept. Bill came up from the Hangar at 4 and immediately went out to cut the front field. He didn’t get it done earlier. Around 2, I talked to Patrick, my son. I’d meant to do it all last weekend but when the time was good for me, it was not likely a good time for him. So, I texted first and he called me back within 10 minutes. We had a nice catch up chat and I’m happy to hear they are doing well.
Gibbs was ringing the bell so much today
indicating to me that he just wanted to be outside
So, after supper, I just let him run and run
He found an apple and played with it for about 15 minutes
For supper, I cooked 2 butt chops in Rosy (air fryer), mashed potatoes, green beans and corn. The chops turned out pretty good and we’ll do that again. Everything else was also good. I wasn’t sure about the beans, they looked pretty thin but oh my goodness, they were delicious. The only thing with a meal like that, cooked inside, it means a lot of dishes.
When they were done, Gibbs and I went for his after supper walk and Bill had his shower. It was a lovely quiet day and my book has me engrossed. I hate that Bill has to go back to work tomorrow but at least it will be just down the highway, less than 10 minutes from home. Black Beauty will be happy with the short drive. I hope you’ve enjoyed your long weekend too. 😉
Thank you for your visit! Happy Labour Day!
