On Saturday, Apr. 30th Bill was up ahead of me. Gibbs and I dragged ourselves out of bed around 7:15 or so. When I opened my small blind, it looked to be a bit windy under the almost clear blue sky. What clouds there were, were wispy and scattered. So, we went for our walk, Gibbs and I. Down the corner and back home. We carried yet another large branch up the laneway and he raced up the steps. The wind wasn't so bad at all although on the back of our neck, later, Patty and I needed protection. 😊
Gibbs has been eating his breakfast immediately following our walk and we don’t want to jinx that so I try to get out with him, no matter how short the jaunt. 😊 It has been an absolutely wonderful day from beginning to end. Bill had started a fire in the pit so I sat inside with my tea and finished yesterday’s blog. It didn’t take long to add my pictures and publish. Then I went outside to putter around. We had nothing on the agenda today but visiting. I neglected to take many pictures, too busy having fun.
I had a few things for hanging outside but without taking a picture, you’ll have to wait until tomorrow to see them. What a tease! Patty and I took a walk around so I could show her the Bunky and Bill’s Hangar. Of course, she loved them both. It is pleasing to hear how much she likes the Ridge, the peacefulness, and the beauty. She sees what we saw and still see here. It is hard to describe what we feel to someone who hasn’t been here.
Bill mentioned taking Duncan over to the Acreage, Donna and Gerry’s other property, so I suggested Patty, Gibbs and I go along too. Bill wanted to take the water filter over for the well and it's a nice drive. Patty was cleaning up inside and when she finished, we hopped into Ptooties. They enjoyed their summer home too. 😊 Back home, we gave them a tour of our Suite after having seen their home yesterday. I had made some steel cut oats in Madame IP before we left so it was done and cooled.
The time flew today, as Patty said “time flies when you’re having fun”, and before we knew it, it was Happy Hour time! We all got our drinks and sat at the picnic table with Duncan checking on supper at appropriate intervals. The sun was wonderful but there was still that annoying cool breeze occasionally. Gibbs played with his rope, he and Duncan get along well and the little romper followed him back and forth. 💓 They invited us to share in their barbecue supper tonight, back bacon roast, salad, rice, corn and rolls.
Because of the chilly air, we decided to eat inside their Airstream rather than outside at our picnic table. It was lovely. You may think an Airstream without slide outs is small but I can see how it would be a beautiful place to live. We make do with the area we have and waste nothing in space. I love the abundance of windows, an awesome light source.
The wine and dessert of apple crumble pie was the icing ‘on the cake’. Everything was delicious and we didn't have to cook. Bill offered to bring their dishes back to our fill our dishwasher and although Patty said that felt funny (sending the dirty dishes out), it made sense! We said goodnight around 8:30 and returned home to Gibbs. He was upset, I guess, because he didn’t eat his supper. Not even after we came home. He went out to piddle and went up to bed at 9:15. ☹
I worked on my blog, actually started it after we came home, and finished writing it before joining the little guy. Another late posting. I’ve been blowing my nose all day, darn cold, but it seemed to have settled down for about 4 hours this afternoon. Nighttime brings it to life again so I took a Tylenol Cold and Sinus pill and went to bed. My regret is that I think I've passed my cold on to Bill, we'll see what the morning brings. I hope our guests didn't pick it up!
This has been a wonderful day and we’ve gotten to know Duncan and Patty a lot better. They are terrific people and we’re proud to say they are our friends. ♥
Thank you for stopping in!
