On Sunday, Apr. 30th we woke, hoping for a reprieve in the wet weather although we really knew better. We're losing track of days because they are all the same. Sounds like everyone is getting much the same weather, well, except for Nancy, our friend in California who is currently in a heat wave. 😊 Lucky her! So, we move on with another ‘inside’ day since there isn’t anything to be done but wait it out.
It was mild at least, with a high today of 10C/50F, if we make it. After a cup of tea and Bill had his cereal, he drove over to the Acreage for another bladder of water. It wasn’t 15 minutes later that he called and asked me to come and save him. Woops! Black Beauty backs into a place under their shelter frame to get close to the pump shed and beside the wishing well. This is so we save the grass. I neglected to get pictures. Just as well, Black Beauty was embarassed.
Today, it was wet from days and days of rain and as soon as Bill backed up, our duelly just slid sideways. Ptooties to the rescue! We had to try a couple of different moves, as we kept slipping in the wet leaves too. LOL It took the 3rd position for us both to grab some gravel and then it was easy pulling BB forward. To get water, we did have to go on the grass but not too far with an extended hose. I waited, just in case and then he followed me home.

Hi Patty and Duncan!
Back home, we relaxed for a bit and I attempted to get into the crocheting project I bombed on a few days ago. I feel like such an idiot when it comes to certain things and following instructions on a knitting or crochet pattern is where I fail. I opened a video of the exact kit and as soon as I saw her holding the needle, I knew what I’d been doing wrong. Duh! I made a few mistakes in my project but eventually got on the right track.
|a birthday celebration from 2018|
We had our bacon and eggs and it was as we were finishing lunch that Donna called and invited us to supper. Today, is Gerry’s birthday and we thought it to be a very nice invitation. Just because. 😊 A call from M informed us that he was feeling better this morning with the meds they gave him and he asked that I come to work tomorrow as planned. When I dropped him off last night, we weren’t sure what how he’d be feeling.
We got cleaned up, out of our ‘bumming around the house’ clothes, and went to Hanover just after 3:30. It’s a school night (haha) so we won’t be too late but I wanted to get a run at my blog post. Gibbs was invited too but he whined the whole way, riding in the back of the car. I like to try and understand why and all I could come up with to explain the anxiety is that it was his first time in the car this season. Hmmm. Anyway, we were glad when we got there and he was quite a good boy.

On a sad note, this morning, my very first message at 7:50 was from my cousin, Tammy. She was passing on the sad news that her mom, my aunt, Mom’s remaining sister, passed at 7 am. It wasn’t unexpected but that doesn’t mean this loss is any easier for them. Rest in Peace Aunt Fern. She was 98. ♥ At Donna’s, we had a wonderful visit, I worked on her puzzle a bit and then had a delicious supper. Pork loin, roasted potatoes, Caesar salad and apple Betty for dessert. 😊

We relaxed in their living room until after 8:30 when we said our goodbyes. We really enjoyed the evening! This has been a dull, wet day and of course, after supper, the sky cleared and the sun accompanied us home – almost. We’re not done with the wind and rain but tonight, the sky is telling another story with a lovely sunset. Bill packed his lunch, something he hasn't done for 6 months and I headed to bed by 10:30.
Thank you for stopping by.
