On Friday, May 5th, I join the group again of TGIF! I’ve only worked 3 days at the shop and 2 days at the Mat plus running around and I’m ready for the weekend. 😊 As Bill said last night, I just feel tired. That’s just 'starting back' aches though, I hope. So, today, the sky was blue when I woke up and looked out. I must say though that it wasn’t until Gibbs started barking at Bill when he came up to say goodbye that I even opened my peepers! LOL
|Even though it wasn't a full sunny day
it was nice to see it first thing.
sure if Gibbs is jealous or protective but the point is that I was deep in
sleep and never heard them get up at 5:30 or 6:00. Whatever the dream was, I only
recall that it was a pleasant one. I didn’t get up until 7 and that’s when I
noticed the clear sky. Yay, I thought, it was mostly a tease as the clouds soon
realized that they’d been duped and returned in the form of a poufy blanket with the occasional holes.
I had my tea and yogourt, catching some early visitors and then turned all the lights on, upstairs and down. I wanted to vacuum today, that was yesterday’s plan, but instead, I used our rubber broom on carpets as well as the laminate floors. The hope of finding my diamond, was slim to nil but I had to try. In my mind, I was 98% sure it was lost just around the supper hour.
|The birds were active and noisy today
Wait! That's not a bird in the first picture!
We've never had squirrels, where'd he
imagine my surprise, glee and relief when I heard something in the dirt pile. 😊 😊 Not sure how we missed it last
night, crawling around with a flashlight and on our knees, but we did. I texted
Bill right away with a picture and then tucked it in a tiny pouch for the day
when we can get it fixed. Bill has found a jeweler close by.
|It's not clear but it doesn't matter
I FOUND it!!
Then, Gibbs and I went outside to spread some black earth in the small gardens and around the trees. Gibbs
grabbed the empty bags and ran around, hoping I’d try and retrieve them.
Emptying the bags into the wheelbarrow worked best for me and after using up 4
bags out of 10, we stopped for a break and I had my coffee. Inside, the dirty little
piggy, almost instantly fell asleep on my laptop. We’d walked down the road
earlier and with all his running around like a whirling dervish, he was pooped
|Another one not clear, but at least I
snuck up on them.
I had a few things on my list to do so after the outside work, I cleaned my hands, placed an order for sympathy flowers, wrapped a shower gift, createed and printed a gift card, called Gibbs’ groomer for an appointment, had lunch, showered, and got dressed for tonight before starting my blog post. Then we went back out to put the wheelbarrow and rake away before walking down the lane to check the mailbox.
|Look at that dirty face!
Bill is only working until 2 today as we must leave for Alma and Tavistock at 5 for a baby shower for Krystal, Bill’s 3rd daughter. 😊 He needs a shower and maybe a snooze before we head out. Krystal is getting very close to her delivery date of June 3rd.
She and Matt will make wonderful parents.
|I am pretty sure this hard worker
needs a raise!
We had nice amounts of
sunshine today but it was short lived each time. I think rather than a tease of
nice weather, it was more like a taste of what is around the corner. I hope so!
I played my afternoon Wordle games while waiting for Bill to return and made myself a cup of tea. Supper is grilled cheese sandwiches, early – like at 4:30 – as we’ll be on the road over the supper hour.
The trip is a 90-minute drive to our destination. We’re picking the guest of honour up on our way so she doesn’t have to drive. I'll include a few pictures of the evening in Saturday's post, this is late enough as it is.

|Her little cow didn't turn out too bad
and she seemed pleased.
Yes, now you've seen the project. 😉
nice day, I’m so grateful for the day off. Gibbs went with us for the evening
and stayed with his Daddy. Hopefully they can entertain themselves. 😊
for the visit and Happy Friday!
