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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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

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!
