On Thursday, June 9th I took Gibbs for a short walk, down the lane and back. Bill was getting ready for work but Gibbs knows the routine and it doesn’t matter that I had to go to work too. 😊 He was ready to go. I’d stripped the bed and the 4 chairs of their covers. When I arrived at the Mat it was empty so I loaded two washers and set about cleaning.
I got carried away cleaning up in the storage rooms and by 8:30, when I wanted to leave, I realized that I forgot to throw the sheets etc. into a dryer. Well, luckily, the sun was making appearances in the cloudy sky so I would hang them out on the line after all. It was a busy day, with work scheduled at M’s again, so I quickly drove down to FS Co-op to look at some stakes for my garden fencing. They were on sale but looked different than I thought so I just bought one to show Bill.
Back home at 9:10, I only had about 30 minutes to sit with Gibbs before I had to leave. I made a coffee in my thermos and prepared to leave. He took his little milk bone treat with no hesitation (!!! He usually ignores it and doesn’t eat it until we come home) and ran up onto the bed! Oh my goodness, I think Clemson’s spirit is telling our little guy what to do. ♥
Actually, he seems to be getting used to the fact that we do come back when we say. I worked 3 hours at hand sanding but in various spots on the truck so it wasn’t boring and not overly hard. We have this truck, the Datsun, another vehicle coming tomorrow and a guy brought a Ford Bronco for an appraisal while I was there. Boy, we are getting busy. M will have to use his second bay in order for us to keep on top of these vehicles. Business is good for him right now.

When I left, I told him I’m not working Fridays so would see him Monday. My 3-hour days will be turning into 4 hours if we expect to get things done, but 4-day weeks are plenty for this part time gal. 😊 I don’t know how Bill does it, I couldn’t keep up the pace like he does. Back home at 1, I warmed up some soup for a late lunch and then went out to cut grass. Bill did most of his area so I wanted to get my area done too.
|I was right. It turned into a cool but pretty evening|
so I'll bombard you with sky pictures
At 3, I had done enough and will do the rest tomorrow if the weather is good. We’ve had sun and clouds repeating all day, ending up with a pretty sky as the clouds move away to the east. I worked on the puzzle while Gibbs kept watch over the property for me. I was feeling quite achy across my shoulders and that wasn’t surprising after the sanding and grass cutting. It will probably be an early night for me.

When Bill got home at 4:40, he changed and drove over to the Acreage for water. We were down to 8 gallons in our tank! Woops! When he returned, he helped me fold the sheets as I took them off the line and Gibbs ran around like a little fool. He was having a ball.
I’d made the bed earlier and I can tell Gibbs is growing up because he didn’t jump up on the bed until I was finished. That’s different from his younger self. ♥

to get this one through the trees
I love how powerful the sun's rays are!
For supper, we had mixed veggies, coconut shrimp and mac and cheese and it was filling and tasty for a quick meal. Bill loaded the dishwasher and washed the pots by hand. He dozed and I tried to write my blog. It will be another late posting; I can tell already. We watched tv and dozed in our chairs, ALL 3 of us. This was a busy day but a good one and for me, the weekend is here.
Today is a daughter’s birthday so Bill called his second born this morning when Gibbs and I were walking. She is in London and we both agree that a phone call is nicer than a text message anyway for wishes. Too bad so much of that goes by the wayside.
Thank you for your visit.
