On Tuesday, Sept. 6th I didn’t hear Bill get up to take Gibbs out nor did I hear him get up for work. I was in the midst of a strange dream; one I was happy to wake up from. It was 7 when I finally got up, just in time to say goodbye to Bill. Black Beauty was going back in to a shop in Hanover to get the alignment checked so Bill took her again today and Billy picked him up on the way to their job site. I didn’t have to clean so as soon as Bill left, I hopped in the shower. Our short work week has begun.
Gibbs and I went for a walk once my hair was dry and I could tell that it was going to warm up nicely. It was around 13C/56F but there was a clear blue sky and a beautiful sun to change those numbers. I had cereal with half a peach before making my coffee-to-go in my thermos. I drove around the corner to M’s shop for 9:30. I did a bit of taping and then sanding on an interior door for M’s own apartment this time.
We’ve got the front rental all fixed up, he wanted to do something for himself. 😉 I worked outside and soon felt the heat of that sun as it moved around to the southwest of his building. Back home, Gibbs was a quiet little greeter with no collar and so I let him outside to run around freely. He didn’t go far and we played chase the ‘toy’ (that’s what we call it) together for a while and then just relaxed in the sun and shade while I read my book.
Bill called about the results of the truck and now there is something else that is in question. LOL, all things regarding safe driving need to be addressed but when it is something we’ve never heard of, we need to follow up with caution. I also had a call from Kaitlyn (the Mat) and we caught up on things regarding machine repairs etc. For now, a weekly update with each other is a good thing.
When Bill was on his way home, he called for me to pick him up at Grey Bruce Fleet Services. He’d picked B.B. up and we were leaving it with Kate for them to check it over tomorrow. Gibbs and I met him there and we all drove home together after getting our 5-gallon water jug filled. It was almost 5:30 when we returned so he and Gibbs dozed and I was able to finish my book quietly beside them. ♥
Such a good book! I enjoyed it a lot and have now added 4 more with the same character to my ‘Want to Read’ section on Goodreads. I just have to get my hands on the books. 😊 Supper was grilled sausages in a bun with ice cream for dessert. Mine was in a cone and we just had enough to give us each a taste. I’ll have to pick up more when it goes on sale.
We washed the thermoses and Bill made his lunch. BTW, Gibbs has still got funny eating habits but is at least eating one really good meal a day, sometimes two. My program was on at 8 so I worked on my blog while watching it. This has been a nice day, warming up to 21C/70F. Summer hasn’t left us yet! ♥

but it was just the right amount
