On Sunday, May 15th when I first opened my peepers, I saw Gibbs on Bill’s side of the bed but no Bill. It was 6:50 am. When I stirred, Gibbs moved as well and came over to see me and then went back to sleep himself. 😊 He’s probably thinking that I’m ‘so predictable’ same as I’m thinking about him. Except, I'm right. 💗
We got up
shortly after 7 and I began sorting laundry. It was a cleaning day and we were
doing our clothes as well. I took Gibbs out just for a short walk on the
property and he headed back to the porch. We’ve determined that he just isn’t
hungry for a morning meal since he didn’t eat breakfast even with Bill home.
Two days in a row. Maybe he doesn’t like it but then he wouldn’t eat it at all,
would he? It seems like one meal a day is sustaining him and he’s still very
I drove into the Mat and I loaded 2 washers while Bill checked things out in
the two storage rooms. Jamie needs some ‘handyman’ work done and has offered it
to Bill if he’d like the job on his own hours. It means weekends only but I’
leaving it up to him. Before coming home, we stopped at Foodland so I could buy
milk and a few clementines for the Orioles and then we got a water jug filled.
the clothes on the line and figured it would be another quick dry day. Were not
sure if there will be more rains tonight or if the forecast has changed as it
is wont to do. It was heating up to be a hot day so Bill mentioned about a ride
after I ate something for lunch. He’d had his cereal late. So, we hopped on
Jazz at 12:30 and I was thrilled for another ride.
some water and ice packs in a small cooler bag and off we went. Bill didn’t
tell me where we were going but he knew I’d enjoy a ride no matter where we
went. 😊 We made it to Markham, pulled into
the Ultramar for fuel. Wow! $20 to fill Jazz, isn’t that a breath of fresh air
after filling an SUV and Duelly? That was it for our ride, Jazz wouldn’t start
again. We moved it away from the pumps and no matter what Bill tried, there was
no power at all.
going anywhere so we called Rob to see if he was able to come and pick us up.
We were blessed that he also had a utility trailer available to him and he was free.
Within an hour, he arrived. We loaded Jazz on and strapped her down but good.
Back home, since it’s Sunday and no one is open, and we’ll call the mechanic in
Hanover in the morning. ☹ We were really bummed, such a lovely
home by 2:30 and Rob left us with the loaded trailer. Bill went to the Hangar
and I made a keto almond crust cheesecake for M. His 65th birthday
is tomorrow and that is his favourite thing I prepare. It is cooking and once
it has released, I’ll get outside and bring our clothes in. There is quite a
film of clouds over what earlier was a blue sky so I won’t take any chances. The
temperature reached it’s high of 26C/79F today and that’s a little too much so
mutter the words ‘if we didn’t have bad luck, we wouldn’t have luck at all’ but
deep down we know darn well things could be so much worse. We could have been
further from home than the 16 km we were. We had a few issues with our old ’79 Goldwing
back in the day but didn’t expect to have to worry about a 2003 Yamaha. I guess
it’s what to expect with older rv’s and vehicles.
afternoon that was left was quiet. Gibbs and I sat indoors, he slept and I
read. Bill went down to the Hangar until about 4:30 and he came up and dozed. 😊 For supper, I was fresh out of ideas so just made scrambled
eggs with mini pork sausages. It didn’t turn my crank but it was good for us.
We had the last of the cheesecake pie for dessert and loaded the dishwasher.
still waiting for Gibbs to eat. It’s like all of a sudden he doesn’t like it
anymore. He was eating at least once a day but now it’s even less. I have to
call tomorrow to get an appointment for his flea and tick meds as well as see
if he needs a heart worm test. Also, he needs a haircut so I’ll call Kate at Bath
an Biscuit too. None of those things have anything to do with his non-eating
a bit of a bummer of a day although it was a Sunday off and we were together.
That counts for something! ♥
for your visit. I hope you had a great day.
