It wasn’t a restful day for me on Sunday, June 5th but sometimes that is just the way it turns out.
Let’s go back to last night. We arrived at the Drive-In around 8:45 with the movie to start at 9:15 or whenever it was dark enough. The screen sure seems a whole lot smaller than I remember it but perhaps we used to park closer. It was a beautiful warm night and we didn’t need the blankets at all. So, the movie, Top Gun, was AWESOME! We both love the original and this one did not disappoint us at all.
We had to wait in a long line to get this far
and looking back, seems we came at a good time
There were a number of hatchbacks where people
sat to watch, chairs behind their vehicles
and chairs in the bed of pick ups
It wasn't that warm!
It actually didn’t begin until close to 10 and ended around midnight. The funniest thing was the intermission commercials. Do you remember those from your teen years? Well, they haven’t changed!
That was so funny! Even the somersaulting wiener that jumps into the bun. We decided to stay for the second show. Lost City starred Sandra Bullet, Ed Harris and Brad Pitt was not worth staying for and after 20 minutes or so, we left. Stupid movie.
We were home by 1:15 and after Gibbs running out for a quick piddle, we all climbed into bed. The little guy must sleep while we’re gone but had no problem going back to sleep until 6:30 this morning. We slept in until 8:15 and sorted the laundry. Back to my busy day. To start out, I clean every other day and every two weeks, it falls on a Sunday. So, I work on the Lord’s day regardless.
I had texted Jamie with my May work hours and he would meet me at the Mat this morning to pay me. With the sun ruling the blue sky, I could hang the laundry on the line. 😊 Within 15 minutes, my ‘boss’ showed up and we began discussing the upcoming sale of the laundromat. ☹ I’m happy for Jamie but it could mean that I’ll no longer be needed. The new owners might need someone but it depends on whether we get along appropriately. Neither here nor there right now.
My job is secure at the Mat until July 27th so that’s almost 2 months. I did my cleaning in between helping Jamie clean out the two storage rooms. They were long overdue and even he admitted that. Sometimes it takes a push to get it done. He asked me to be ‘secretary’ for him by making up a Chattel list and then we purged and made piles of what needs to go to the dump. Bill has a couple of small things he’ll do for Jamie over the next little while and it will be good to go. Literally.
I had filled Ptooties on my way in and before I left town, filled a 5-gallon water jug. Bill and Gibbs were down at the Hangar when I returned and I hung the clothes. Bill's plan was to work on his hobby today and he did. 💙 Gibbs was let off leash and ran around a bit but mostly followed the revolving shade under the clothes line. 😊 I vacuumed the Suite and emptied the dishwasher. At 3, it was time for a tea and to put my puzzle away.
At 3:30, we drove over to meet our new neighbours to the east. It’s a mom, daughter and husband and their two children. They seem very nice and very appreciative of our welcome. They’ve never lived in the country before so we gave them a garbage pick up calendar and a couple of tags since the first one is tomorrow. They’ve never had a mailbox so that was discussed as well as property maintenance. “Can we cut our trees and bushes?” That kind of thing.
They have a cute little chihuahua name Prince who came to me to be picked up right away. Gibbs was suspicious when I returned, sniffing my hands, sleeves and shirt all over. Woops! They seem very nice and at least we know their names and visa versa if they ever need us. I put the puzzle away and started a new one. This one will be easier, I made sure of that! I worked on it for an hour before coming inside to start supper.
Haddock and fries for supper ending with a Salty Caramel ice cream cone with a cherry on top. Breaking all the rules tonight, it seems, but it was all delicious. This has been a good day, busy but good, and we’re watching a movie together before I retreat to an early bedtime. 😊
Thank you for popping around!
