Glen Rose, TX
On Wednesday, Nov. 17th Gibbs and I woke up a few minutes before 7. What a good little sleeper he is. After taking him out, we let Daddy sleep and sat downstairs where I was able to finish my J.P. book. As long as Bill was snoring off and on, Gibbs had no interest in bothering him. Once we heard sounds of him moving to wake up, about 45 minutes later, Gibbs went up to help. 😉
We had our morning drinks and then relaxed until around 11:30. I baked cinnamon buns for brunch and after dishes, we went outside to sit on the patio.

It wasn’t long after that Bill got Gibbs' leash and we all went for a walk along the river bank. Were we ever surprised when Gibbs ran right into the water! He didn’t realize that it was as deep as it was and hopped out quickly. That was funny even though he was a bedraggled looking dog for a while. It was very hot and we were all panting when we got back.
|Woops!! 'That's deep, Dad!'|
More patio sitting but Gibbs wouldn’t relax when we were both outside with him. Once we came in and left him, he immediately seemed to calm down. I know that says we are doing something wrong but for the life of me, I’m not sure what.

Bill had a late night so I assume that is why he went up to the bedroom around 1:30. Too hot up there for me so I caught up with our Book List, now that we are both reading, I need to stay on top of it. 😊
After starting my blog post, I carried our two completed books over to the clubhouse to leave them for someone else. Yesterday, I found a Lee Child story of Jack Reacher and brought it home. I love the lending/borrowing libraries. ♥ Once more, the rest of our afternoon went along lazily. Both of us getting into some books, some tv and just plain nothing. Gibbs and I sat outside until the wind got almost unbearable. It was warm while cuddling together in our big chair.

except for the long tail
We started preparing supper shortly after 5, getting prepped for our early meals in the desert. 😊 Bill barbecued short (?) pork ribs with a potato and inside I cooked corn, peas and fried some cauliflower rice. It was all very good and we only needed one of the ribs each, there was a lot of meat on them. We’ll have the other two another night. After dishes, Bill fed Gibbs and we folded our outdoor chairs up in case we get some dampness overnight. The temperature is dropping down to about 52F/12C.
|A good supper, our first barbecue since we left home|
The evening was quiet, with some tv and some reading. My new book is by Catherine Cookson called The Tinker’s Girl. I’m almost 1/3 of the way into it already, it is that good. We’ve had a nice day here in the park. We get lots of invites to join crafts (today is was a cooking class for Chicken Enchiladas) and card games but so far it hasn’t tweaked our interests. Those are things we feel more comfortable joining with friends. Our ‘already’ friends. 😊

Thank you for your visit. A commenter asked about the name of our patio mat so we’re researching that. Bill thinks Sea Breeze but hang tight an we’ll confirm it asap. ♥
