Saturday, June 4th we didn’t get up until after 7:30. I’d gone to bed last night, with Gibbs, at 9:30. The last 3 nights, I fell asleep in my chair and texted Bill (he goes to the Hangar after supper) that we were going to bed. I never used to do that so I guess the work is exhausting me. In a good way, it feels good to be tired out after a decent day's work.
We didn’t have to be anywhere this morning but Bill had hoped to go to the flying field. It started out as a calm cool morning with full sunny skies. Before he left at 9, the winds had picked up but I was impressed when he hooked up his cargo ‘plane’ trailer and went anyway. Usually, the first time of a season is the hardest to talk yourself in to going. 😊

Fingers crossed that they do well again this year
Gibbs and I went for a walk first thing and it was a short walk. I swore that I would take him home and go out on my own. I didn’t, but it sounded good! I had other things in which I would get exercised by.

He can see me and I can see him
And he truly doesn't mind the leash tether
After my tea, I went out to the garden. With Gibbs tethered near the Bunky, I took all the required items up the hill and planted my 7 plants. They already look healthy so I hope they take root and flourish! The water spray of Miracle Gro should help.
I watered my potted flowers as well and before I knew it, I was down on the corral hill pulling weeds. Well, not even pulling many of them because I was trying hard to not lose my balance with the rocks and steepness of the hillside. LOL, I did make some improvement but that is a very frustrating endeavour! When I stopped, I realized that not once did I notice my achy arms and back so continuing movement is the best medicine. 😊
So, here is what's left of my 'newly planted'
day lilies from Cathy
I don't know if it's Gibbs or Chippy
I'm sure both are equally guilty!
I don't know if it is noticeable to you
The left and right side has been weeded
to some degree
returned at noon, after I’d stopped, and we decided on a bike ride. It wasn’t
exactly warm, about 15C/60F, especially on a speeding motorcycle but the sun
was warm and we had gear to wear. I put on my chaps, long sleeves, a neck
warmer and full leather gloves. We both put our ride specific boots on and we
were off! What a great ride. I thought I’d feel cold but it was quite pleasant.
Goose the Spruce is getting tall
Healthy still with new needles but I think
this one must be approaching 'spruce tree teens'.
Look at those sprawly, gangly arms and/or legs
|We stopped in Holstein to see the dam|
|But other than a nice view of the Saugeen River|
it was disappointing
We hit a few towns, Holstein (who seemed to have a town wide yard sale), Mount Forest, Harriston, Mildmay, places we seldom go to. Bill had me lost on the way home but that’s never surprising. When I just about figure where we were he would turn left instead of right, the direction I thought we’d go. It’s always a treat just sitting tight behind Bill, I seldom know where we’re headed. ♥ Part of the fun.

Bottom - aah, look who waits for me! 💖
It was over 2 hours when we turned onto the gravel road that takes us to Donna and Gerry’s Acreage. 😊 Funny, when they passed us, not knowing who we were until they got beside us. We stopped in while Bill had a beer with Gerry and Donna and I sat to catch up on our day. They’ll be staying out tonight but it is going down to 8C/46F so they might need their furnace.
Bill and I came home and he and Gibbs had a snooze. We’ve decided that after our grilled burger supper, we are going to see Top Gun, Maverick. It’s all the rage and Bill really is keen to see it. Ratings are quite good. We’re going to the drive-in in Hanover, about a 25-minute drive. We were laughing earlier that it has been about 20 years since we’ve gone to a drive-in movie and neither of us can remember what we saw!
We’ll take blankets, hot chocolate (real partyers we are!) and probably chips and leave Gibbs at home. It will be a real date! Whether we stay to see Lost City is debatable, my eyeballs probably won’t be open by midnight. The night has calmed right down with only a titch of a barely visible breeze.

This has been a great day, even though our Friday night lotto tickets were duds. I would be totally shocked if we even won $10.

Thank you for your visit. Tomorrow I’ll let you know how the ‘old fogies’ date went. 😉 ♥
