We were up on Monday, Victoria Day, May 22nd by 7:30 at the latest. Bill really had wanted to go flying again but there was a wind that made the morning feel much colder than it was. He had a headache too so he decided to take some Advil and go back up to bed. We had another late night but he was the one feeling tired for some reason. I think he was just worn out from the work week.
better when he got up and we all went outside around 9. With him starting my
weed eater, I donned the appropriate attire (mesh hat, hoodies, socks &
shoes, long pants and ear protection) and went to the corral to do what I
could. I particularly wanted to clean up on the east hill around my new ‘garden’
but then when that was done, carried on around the fence line, inside and out
of the corral.
I was at
it for a couple of hours and had to quit. I was dripping with sweat, really. 😕Bill decided to hop on the rider and
cut grass too, it is growing so fast these days. Around 11:30, I had to put the
trimmer away, my arms were like putty. Gibbs and I sat together for a while until
Bill came up for lunch. The back field and berm were finished. It had warmed up
considerably by then and the wind had died but that just meant the hungry black
flies were ever-present.
bacon and eggs, we went back out. I had no plan to pick up the tools so instead
moved the metal bench from its location behind the outhouse. There was a time,
I thought it was in the perfect spot but now I want to relocate it so I use it
more often. While Bill cut the front field, I moved the heavy thing over to an
area behind the Bunky aka my ‘She-Shed’. It sits under the tree nicely, after I
moved the king chairs.
We have a
free umbrella that Bill and Duncan picked up at a neighbour’s last weekend. It's the same place we got
the Adirondack chairs a few years ago. 😊 Once I find a base for it, it will suffice to give shade
over whoever the king and queen are for the day. The wooden chair set already
has a hole for it. I’ll keep an eye at yard sales and on Marketplace/Kijiji as
I won’t pay full price for one.
my plants on the hill and after Gibbs and I walked down the lane, I worked on
the puzzle for a couple of hours. Maybe longer, I don’t know for sure. Gibbs
was the good little guy we know him to be now and stuck real close. After his
bath the other day, he has managed to pick up more and more of the sticky
seedlings off the tree by the Bunky. Poor guy, we drive him nuts trying to pull
them off. ☹
surprised me by building a frame for the firepit and mixed up 4 bags of cement
to fill it. I’d asked for a cement base instead of the rocks (which still allow
weeds to creep in) and today he fulfilled my wish! What a guy, just another
step up on that pedestal I already have him on. ♥ He went to the Hangar to putter away but we were both of the same mind,
around 4:30 when we met inside the Suite. Done for the day.
Gibbs and I waited until he was just finishing
before we ventured out.
I suggested covering it in case
our little runner got frisky.
And this is where our good little Gibbs sat
while I worked on the puzzle 💖
I made a
tea and started my blog while he dozed with Gibbs in the chairs. 😊 Well deserved nap, I’d say. We accomplished a fair bit again
today. For supper, we’re having pork chops, oven baked or barbecued, I’m not
sure yet. Maybe a potato on the Weber as well. We’ve reached 20C/68F this
afternoon before it started cooling down again. It has been a nice day and the
forecast is warmer for tomorrow when we get back to routine.
Bosch is on the schedule for after supper, as I said ‘addicted’. 😊 I hope you’ve had a great day and wonderful long weekend!
for popping by.
