A Quiet Day in our Neighbourhood

Park Place RV Park

Sunday, Jan.29th we were up at different times. I think Bill came back to bed after taking Gibbs out but I’m not clear on that. I do know that he was downstairs by the time I woke up. I was up last night past my normal 10 pm bedtime so was still quite sleepy this morning. I did manage to drag myself out of bed at 7:30 though, which is pretty usual. šŸ˜Š

Probably by now, you're tired of seeing 
the morning pictures, which all look the same,
but I'm not!

Gibbs and I walked and when we returned, Bill was just heading to the field. It was a clear blue sky and 40F/4C but very calm to start. When I brought him home, I slipped out again right away for my walk. I’ve been really slack over the last few days and my steps and probably physical being paid for it. I know it is a good form of exercise for me.

When I finish writing my blog at night,
Gibbs is usually in my chair
Notice his relaxed position, the legs made me laugh

We didn't get far on this road and he stopped
but took me around the outside perimeter of
the park
Almost as if "we're going the wrong way, Mom"

I walked to Main Street and reached my destination, the Roadrunner Market. I picked up a loaf of fresh French bread, the only reason for the walk, but I also cashed in my Power Ball ticket while there. I was expecting $4 towards my next quick pick but instead she handed me $12. Woohoo! I was surprised but used half of it for a couple of lines. I’m sure we’re just supporting the lottery system but it’s worth a shot. šŸ˜Š

This is the house on Main St.
that I've shown you before
Bob's friend, I think
I love the fence along the Chevron's lot

Quite the build!

I had my tea and some cereal before sitting with Gibbs with my book. It is getting really hard to put it down. I walked to the puzzle room around 9:30 and found Adele and Susan sitting at the table. We worked together on it and when Bill returned from the field early, he helped put a few pieces in as well. The girls moved to play pool and I finished the puzzle on my own.

It's a nice picture and was a fun puzzle

It was time to return home for lunch. We had some of the fresh bread, mine with a salad plate and Bill had his in a sandwich. It is so good! Since the puzzle was done, I stayed home for the afternoon. 

Sitting outside as long as the sun was out,
was great

It's pretty quiet out there for reading

I sat in the tent with my book, a couple of times and when the clouds began moving in across the sky, I moved inside into the warmth. Gibbs and I went for another walk, after my tea, and I got a couple of pictures of the early evening sky.

See the flag in the centre of the photo?
We went from zero winds to this
but at least from the southwest

For supper, Bill grilled the last 2 Pork Apple Sausages from Nancy and I made a salad and boiled a large potato. Yum! After clean up, I worked on my blog and then sat to finish my book. This has been a nice quiet day and we managed to reach a cooler than yesterday high of 63F/17C.

Supper was good and for dessert, we had
applesauce and a couple of chocolate chip cookies
Good night!

Thanks for the drop in!


  1. Always remember that it is your Blog, so you can post whatever you want.
    Glad to read that you are getting warmer days by now. It always cools down the week of the Big Tent.
    Be Safe and Enjoy your adventures.

    It's about time.

    1. Yes, I know, but I don't like boring my readers either. :) February sounds warmer. Yay!

  2. Love that Gibbs. I can sure tell who is boss in that house. Took a lot of patience building that rock wall. Maybe, with your puzzle patience you could instead build a wall like that at your summer home.

  3. Gibbs does look pretty relaxed in you Sounds like a nice relaxing Sunday.
    It was really great to see you and Bill for Happy Hour yesterday and what a nice surprise to see Cheryl and Dave. Thank you for inviting them. I could not believe we had sat and chatted for 3 hours when I looked at the time. Time truly does fly when you are having fun!
    One last thing, I never get tired of seeing sunrises or sunsets in person or pictures.

    1. I'm so glad we were all able to get together for H H and it won't be the last. :)
      I was surprised that it turned into 3 hours too, hope we didn't overstay our welcome.

  4. I also enjoy your sunrise and sunset pictures too Patsy. Gibbs always makes me smile.

  5. That looks like a much better puzzle than the one we did. Looks like all the pieces actually fit! Hugs to Gibbs. He's going to love more yak cheese!!

  6. I enjoy the early morning and sunrise photos too. It reminds me that other places don't have the snow and cold I'm experiencing right now.
    That wall is something else! Whoever did the work certainly had tenacity.

    1. Thank you, the sunrise pictures seem to set the morning for me. ;) Isn't that wall incredible!

  7. Love all your pictures! Dinner looks yummy! Hoping it warms up down there soon. Missing your in the sun pics :)

  8. Lovely photos as usual. Yea on the lottery win.

    God bless.

  9. Beautiful sunrise photo. Glad you posted it. Becky

  10. Have you read any of Louise Penney books? Man are they addictive!

    1. Yes, I've read a few of hers. I love Armand Gamache stories and all the ladies too. ;)
