On Thursday, September started up with quite a chill in the air. It was only 7C/45C at 7 o’clock. We all slept through Bill’s phone alarm at 5:30 so it was lucky that I happened to wake up at 5:40. It is never fun having to hustle around to meet a time schedule. But Bill needed to move a bit quicker this morning. ☹ I got up with Gibbs at 6:30 and said goodbye.
We'll miss seeing the Airstream every day
I didn’t hang around any longer than it took to wash and make a tea to-go. No sign of movement at the Airstream so as quietly as possible, I hopped into Black Beauty and left for work. Bill took Ptooties today as he had a distance to drive to meet Billy. The laundromat was messy, not dirty, so I first picked up the dryer sheets, tested a washer and a dryer while I worked. Confident that they worked, I removed the ‘Do Not Use’ tags.
They pulled out at their planned time
We may see them one more time this year.
I was home a few minutes after 8 and Duncan was out packing things up. They were ready to pull out at 9:10 and 10 minutes later, I left Gibbs in charge and drove around the corner for my shift. Today, it was straight forward, working outside again on the ’99 Jetta. M was gone to run errands for most of first 2 hours and it was nice to have a job that I could work steady at while he was away. By 10:30, the sun was around the building and warmed me up nicely. 😊
It was a bit windy but it did warm up to around 21C/70F before the afternoon was over. Gibbs and I went outside, him with his leash on this time, and I got out a new puzzle. It was the last small one (550 pc.) that I have and I thought it might last me a while. Gibbs was quite content, very quiet in his collar, laying in his camp bed in the semi-shade. ♥ He’s such a good little guy, making this process easier on me by being so accepting.
Around 5, I took him off his leash and sat with him for 20 minutes until Bill came home. He didn’t bark while he drove up the lane but did a couple of times once I let him get down to go meet Daddy. We came inside and I started supper around 5:45. We had sloppy joes on toasted buns and shared a very large cob of North Bay corn. ♥ Delicious, the whole meal. 😊
Bill loaded the dishes and made his lunch before going to the Hangar. I worked on my blog, took Gibbs’ collar off and we spent the evening together. It has been a good day and I am feeling some wonderful contentment that I don’t have to report to work tomorrow.
Monday, is Labour Day so a statutory holiday for Canada. The last one for the summer and before the children go back to school on Tuesday. Saying that, I remember how busy things got at work when we worked for the School Board. Another reason to be grateful. Retirement!
Thank you for your visit!
