I didn’t hear it until 7:30 on Sunday, May 1st but once I took my ear plugs out, I heard the strong gusts of wind. I had another good sleep with only a couple of coughs through the night. We didn’t go for a walk this morning, I slipped into my lounging pj’s instead. That wind would not be fun out on the road. It was 7C/45F with a forecasted high of 13C/55F.
There was nothing planned but Duncan and Bill dumped their gray water tank and then we stuck to ourselves. There was a bit of rain around 11 and since I hadn’t eaten, at 11:30 I got bacon and eggs out for brunch. It was the last of our bacon, good thing it lasts so long in the fridge. I have a pack in the small freezer but wanted to clean up the older bacon and the eggs.
We were eating when we saw Duncan and Patty going for a walk. The rain had stopped and even though the wind was still strong, it felt warmer and bearable. When we saw them turn into the laneway, we all went out too. Bill wanted to show Patty inside his cargo trailer, all of his prized planes. 😊 Gibbs ran around, getting dirty in the mud edging the pond and trying to eat goose poop. I got tired of admonishing him so brought him up to his rope tether.
|When he opened the back door, Patty's response was|
"Wow, you've got to be kidding!"
He was very dirty and needed to dry off before coming inside. He needed a ‘bum’ wash so I put him in the sink and we took care of that right away. Bill ran the dishwasher earlier than normal because I’d emptied fridge dishes. We are ‘scraping’ bottom just in time. With Mr. Appliance coming in the morning with our mother board, we should be able to start restocking. Yay! ♥
Around 2:30, we took our Double Series game over to the Eddie Bauer Airstream – our new neighbours. 😊 They had never played but since it is the only game Bill really enjoys playing, they were gung-ho to learn. It was 6 when we finally left. I felt bad that we might have over-stayed our welcome, the time went by so quickly. We are enjoying their company and cover a variety of subjects while playing the game. Duncan and I won 4 out of 7 games so we know there will be a rematch one day.
Tomorrow they leave for Meaford. They are staying in the pretty town for a week of fishing, meeting with some friends/family. They are pleased for our hospitality and we are pleased for their companionship. 😉 It works both ways! Back at the Suite, supper was leftovers reheated. Spaghetti for me and hamburger patties, dressing and corn for Bill. More empty dishes!
Bill and I are both sniffling a bit and when I noticed that I have a rash around my neck and chest area, it indicates to me that I am on the better side of this cold. Whenever I get sick, which I have to admit is very rare, a kind of heat rash is the final closure. So, that’s good news! It will be gone by tomorrow. We all know our own bodies, don’t we?
We watched television together after 8 and I was in bed with Gibbs immediately following. We had a bit of rain today but nothing compared to what we all expected. The winds were crazy, 36 and 37 mph gusts but the temperature for most of the afternoon was on the mild side, nearing 12C/54F.

Another fabulous day and I hope yours was too! Thank you for your visit.
