Monday, Aug. 22nd I was the first to get up, not counting the Gibbs ‘out’ time at 6 am. Bill didn’t need to leave for work until around 8:15 or so but I had to clean the Mat. I was washed, dressed and out the door with my tea a few minutes before 7. It was looking pretty foggy when I first got up but I didn’t notice any as I drove the distance to Durham.
The place was empty and in pretty fair condition again. I emptied the lint traps in the dryers, emptied the recycle bins, wiped out the washers and finished by mopping the floors. It’s nice and easy when no one is in there, especially washing the floors. I was out in 45 minutes and drove to fill a bottle of water at the Water Store. Homeward bound by 8:15.

I'm enjoying these!
Bill left with Black Beauty soon after. He had a 40-minute drive to Mildmay but had decided she needed a good run so we didn’t switch vehicles today. If he is working in town tomorrow, he’ll be taking the truck again. 😊 On Wednesday she goes in for some major surgery. Bummer, she’ll be in for two days. After having some cereal at home, I made a thermos of coffee and drove around the corner to M’s shop for my shift.
block and hand sanding on two vehicles, the Chev and the Datsun, and I was paid
and out of there at 12:30. It seemed like a fast 3 hours today and who can say
that on a Monday job? 😊 Gibbs and I had our lunch, a fried
quesadilla for me (yummy!) and Gibbs had his regular food with a bit of cheddar.
Such a good boy in his bed
I played my Wordle and Phrazle games and then a bit of Scrabble-Go. One opponent, whom I don’t know, must sit on her phone all day as when I play, she plays immediately. I would get nothing else done if I did the same! Anyway, she is a good opponent as we seem to be matched pretty fairly. It isn’t any fun for anyone if you are constantly winning OR losing. Trust me, I have games in both categories.
Gibbs and I went outside to the Bunky and I started a new puzzle. I’ll save my 1000-pc ones for the winter, taking them along to do in the clubhouse. 😊 This one is 750 pieces. The rain visited us a couple of times during the day, this morning while I worked at the shop and then around 3:30. Gibbs had to sit inside the Bunky with me until the short shower stopped.
Bill was home around 4:30 and we came inside to have my tea before supper. Bill went online to renew the license plates and I started my blog. Supper was chicken, but at this point I hadn’t decided exactly how I was going to prepare it. When it came time, I used Italian seasoned bread crumbs to coat the thighs. They baked in the oven for about 50 minutes and along with broccoli for me and mac & cheese that was leftover, it was a good supper.
You know we have to have dessert! So, we each had some apple crisp warmed up with the butter pecan ice cream. Bill told me last night that I can keep that recipe! 😊 It is quite delicious! We cleaned up the dishes and spent the evening with a couple of things. Bill is online checking out travel insurances, comparing a couple of known companies.
This has been a great day and the sky to the west has opened up and let the sun through in time to set for the night. Maybe that means a nice day tomorrow! ♥
Happy 75th Birthday to one of my big sisters! It's so hard to believe that we are in these ages when we still feel like we're 50!
Thank you for taking the time to see what we’re up to.
