Wednesday, Sept. 15th it was as if nothing had transpired last night. We felt relaxed and it seems that other than rain, the storms ended after we went to bed. It doesn’t mean we are able to stop thinking about the ‘what ifs’. Bill left around 7:30 with the work trailer and at 7:45, I drove to Durham to clean. Each time I go, I convince myself that it is soon time to stop cleaning too. As much as I’d hate to let Jamie down, it is nagging at me so much, the way people treat property that doesn’t belong to them. ☹
The L & F box is still crammed to overflowing with the clothes that were in there on Monday. Plus, an old coat, a filthy comforter and a just as dirty body pillow. Yeuch. For now, with gloves on, I put them in one of the laundry carts. I finished up by washing the floors and popped down to Foodland for a loaf of bread for Bill’s lunches. The day was starting out cool with an expected high o f just 20C/68F. That doesn’t sound too bad but it depends on how much sun comes with it. In Arizona, 68 is absolutely balmy, swimming weather for me.😎
I focused on finishing my blog – heck, actually writing it since I hadn’t even started. I guess the day was busy enough yesterday with other priority things. After a few distractions, I managed to complete it. I felt hungry so had 2 toasted bread crusts (the Villagio crusts are so fluffy) with some Gibson’s Turmeric honey. Having a craving for something so sweet isn’t a good idea but it tasted great! LOL
The rest of my day was reading and Googling online for short term rentals. It feels like an obsession for me right now but we really don’t know what the situation will be. Finding a space of our own for the winter months is turning into a real challenge and even more so because we aren’t in a position to commit yet even if we found one. Gibbs and I went for a walk to get the mail and walk through the front field. It was a good time to clear my head too.
On the way back up the hill, ‘we’ picked up or rather dragged the branch that came off the corral tree to the brush pile. Gibbs is such a good little helper, bouncing around in front of the branch. 😊

but he still needs to check on me
Bill pulled in the lane a couple of minutes past 4 and we caught each other up on our day. It felt quite warm inside the Suite so I opened windows. I’m sure we’ll be closing them pretty soon since it is supposed to drop to 8C/47F overnight! Yikes!
I had ground beef thawing for supper but until it ends up on the table (it’s almost that iffy) I couldn't answer Bill when he asked what we’re having. It will be a surprise to both of us. Ha ha! So, at 6, I fried the beef with onions and eventually added frozen mixed vegetables. We had boiled potatoes on the side and I made gravy out of the hamburger mix. It’s a fall back recipe that Mom made for our large family, a lot. I’ve always enjoyed it and can still see my older brother using bread after his potatoes were gone. 😊
Supper was delicious as that meal usually is. I don’t think it was from the meal but before he finished eating, Bill experienced heartburn. It concerned me as it took a while for it to ease tonight.
I did the dishes and eventually he was able to settle down and hopped in the shower. The air has already started to cool down and the sun is dropping below the horizon. The sky was pretty to the south with a Waxing Gibbous moon. I had to look it up, I’m not a moon watcher. We have to wait until election night, Monday, to see the full moon.
For the evening, we just relaxed watching tv. I was feeling some effects from last night’s late night and although I dozed off in my chair a couple of times, I knew I’d sleep well tonight. This was a nice peaceful day. No storms. 😊
Thank you for your visit.
