It was 7:20 on Monday, Jan. 24th when Gibbs and I slipped out of bed, leaving Daddy to drop back off, if he could. It was another nice morning, clear sky, no wind and 44F/7C so therefore, a nice walk. Gibbs, our gigolo, met two little female dogs, nose to nose, but no valid prospects. I think he still has Gabby (or Allie?) in his mind. 😊
I took a peek at our battery situation this morning and was pleased that they were charged up to 12.2 before I left for my walk. This is just proof of what that glorious sun can do. ♥ Yesterday was a zinger. We made our coffee and tea and relaxed while we drank it. Bill wanted to get our fresh water topped up so drove up around 9 to fill the bladder. When he came back, he wasn’t too happy. The inside of the cap broke when he turned it off so we stewed a bit about how to transfer the water to the tank.
While outside, there was a man heading across the gravel towards us. Hmm. Gibbs was going a bit crazy so rather than listening to the barking and trying to restrain him, I put him inside where he stopped immediately. We met James, an rv’er from southern Louisiana who reads our blogs. 😊 😊 So cool! I’m glad he stopped by and we chatted for quite some time about everything.
He began by following The Bayfield Bunch, so sidebars do work. He’s read theirs, ours and Nancy’s plus, I’m sure, a number of others. I should have snapped a picture but I didn’t have my camera. Hopefully, we’ll see him and his wife, Cindy, when they walk through next time. Bill managed to hold the cap in a way that he transferred 90% of the water from the bladder to our tank so 3 cheers for his ingenuity – again. ♥

Our old bladder is back home, so once more
we just need to get through this week.
The rest of the day was pretty low key. We had scrambled eggs and bacon for lunch and read our books. I spent most of the day out in either of our chairs, moving according to how hot I was. Bill and I noticed the hummingbird hovering around my new feeder so that is encouraging. Once he figures it out, he’ll be back, I hope. The day was quieter than normal because our neighbours were gone from 10 until about 3. 😊
They aren’t noisy, but we can hear every conversation which means they can probably hear ours. At 5:45, we started supper. Fish and chips tonight. We have tv to watch tonight, so Bill will try the generator to plug in the Fry Daddy.
Okay, so all you crocheters, no laughing.
This doesn't look like it is supposed to - AT ALL!
This is the tutorial I was watching
I'm obviously an idiot with a crochet hook in my hands. LOL
I should have quit before I started. :(
I chatted on Messenger with Deb late this afternoon and she has graciously offered to help me get a blanket started before we go our separate ways. They are not far down Hwy 95 so we’ll try and get together on the weekend. Thanks Deb!

Twice today he sat on the step, like he does at home. ♥
Supper was good. The cod fish was tasty, Bill had the fries and I cooked some sweetlet peas to share. This afternoon we had a snack so this meal was just enough to fill us. This was a good day and evening as well watching a few of our favourites. Yay, the generator started again!

Lastly, today is a special day. My sister-in-law, Liz, is celebrating a birthday today so I can't miss wishing her all the best.😊
Thank you for stopping in.
