On Thursday, Sept. 23rd I checked my feet. No toe tag so that meant I was here to turn another year older. Yay! Life is short and I know too many friends/ family who didn’t make it to this ripe ‘ole’ age, so yup, it’s my birthday! 😊 A day to celebrate.
There was a lovely birthday card on the table waiting for me. My sweetie did it again with just the perfect words. ♥ Bill didn’t need to rush to work this morning but I wanted to get in to town before 8 so took my water and left my boys at home. The Mat wasn’t too bad today and within 10 minutes of my arrival, my daughter called to make my day.
We chatted for a nice long time before saying goodbye. I so love to hear from my ‘young’uns’. 😊 She was working from home today which made that chat possible. I finished cleaning with only one regular customer to work around and then stopped at the bank to deposit some of my cash. It disappears quicker when I carry it around with me although my online purchases take a toll too. LOL
I drove by the duplex in town where Bill and the crew were working just because I can. Mike was out front with Bill and called out a birthday wish too. Back home, I had my tea with Gibbs. My reward for finishing yesterday’s blog last night was that I could sit in my chair with the little guy. He is very cuddly this morning and I love that.
The weather today has improved from yesterday but it is still pretty much a fall day. If we reached 14C/57F today up here on the Ridge, it would be a miracle but at least the rain has held off since 8 this morning. We got a lot of rain overnight and with the winds from Wednesday, trees were uprooting because of the soft ground. Not here, at least.
I stayed inside with the exception of taking Gibbs out when necessary for most of the afternoon. Bill arrived home around 2, done for the day. We needed water so Bill drove to the Acreage only to return within 20 minutes. They had a tree come down across their lane making entry impossible. Oh-oh. He loaded his chain saw after notifying Gerry and headed back. We need water tonight so it is kind of important that he get in.
For supper, we had fish and chips and tonight, I felt like having the fries too. They were good for a change. For dessert we had runny lemon pie. It just didn’t want to set for me but it still tasted darn good! I’ve pigged out today on carbs but I’m sure I won’t lose any sleep over it. 😊 After dishes, we watched tv until 10 when we all went to bed.

I’d slipped our kokopeli blanket between the sheet and the chenille spread today as last night I felt really chilly through the night. I guess, now that it is fall, it’s time to put warmer sheets on too. This was a good day, mostly lazy this afternoon with my book. It is so intriguing!
