Glen Rose, Texas
On Friday, Nov. 19th Bill was the first one up with Gibbs. It was a cool/cold morning sitting at only 33F/5C but the sun made a grand appearance early. I had pulled our duvet up from the bottom of the bed where it has been folded for the past few nights. The day was to warm up to 64F/18C and the wind died off considerably from the last couple of days. This would be a moderately nice day. 😊 We had our morning brew and I sat with Gibbs to read while Bill went to TSC in Glen Rose to fill a propane tank.
Late morning, I
informed Bill that I wasn’t cooking anything for lunch as I had noodle soup to
reheat so Bill made himself a sandwich. I also had a peanut butter and green
onion sandwich with my bit of soup. Yum. We did dishes and all of us took a drive into
Granbury and located the Pure Water Station on the highway. We filled both 5-
gallon jugs at $1.50 each. Can’t beat that! Gibbs was good on the drive, even without his bed, he slept. ♥
turning back onto highway 312, Bill stopped at the 7 Eleven at the corner for a fuel up. Now we
were ready for our departure on Sunday. We had drinking water, propane for heat and fuel for driving. For some odd reason, we’ve done nothing
but rest it seems, we felt tired when we’d returned home. Gibbs slept, Bill worked on
his next blog post, which you can check out here. I
sat in my chair after writing a bit in my blog and worked at finishing my book.
It is such an enjoyable story!
When the sleepy eyes made reading difficult, I took my book to the bedroom. At least that way, if I dropped off, I was in the right place! Gibbs came up with me for a while and the next thing I knew, it was an hour later. 😊 I was tired. However, when I got up, I felt a bit light headed. You know the feeling that makes you think “I shouldn’t have laid down!” but after a cup of tea and a couple of cookies, I was fine.

Going to be a nice day tomorrow
I went for a nice long walk around 5, along the river bank again. The sun was pretty,
dropping down behind the trees and I tried hard to get a selfie with my sweetie
but this is all I’ll share. He always takes a good picture at least! ♥ Back home, Bill barbecued the last two short ribs. What did Elva call
them? Country style pork ribs. The thicker one wasn’t quite cooked enough on
Wednesday. This time, they were perfect with a potato for Bill and our veggies
on the side.

dishes and parted ways. It’s Christmas movies for Bill upstairs and my vet
shows downstairs. In mid-December, I should be ready to watch some of the new Christmas
movies with him. I’ll be in the spirit then. We’ll be in Pilot Knob and we hope
that will be a good experience even though, to our knowledge, none of our close
friends will be there at the same time. We first read that the price had jumped
but discovered yesterday that they have updated their page. Phew!
a good day. It reached the forecasted temperature for the day and will only be dropping to 45F tonight. The heat returns tomorrow. Yay! A bit of running around, a bit of the outdoors, some reading, but
mostly relaxing. I forgot about washing B.B.’s windows so maybe tomorrow. It is
also laundry day.
for taking the time to see what we’re up to.
