On Sunday, May 14th when Bill and Gibbs got up at 6:15, I woke up and then got up at 6:30. I had to clean the Mat and launder Bill’s work clothes from Friday. All the other clothes were washed when I was in last. The Mat was pretty busy but the first customer, Dollar Dave, (He owns the $ store in town) didn’t arrive until I’d been there for 15 minutes so I had our laundry in and the dryer lint cleaned by then. I finished up around 8 and popped into Foodland before heading home.
It was a windy, cool morning, only around 4C/40F but I knew when I hung the few articles of clothing that they would dry fairly quickly. I had slipped out before 7 and was home by 8:15. I’m sure our Airstream neighbours were up but just not out yet. I didn’t blame them, after the two warm days, this wasn’t a morning to sit out with a coffee. Bill was puttering around inside and outdoors.
tea, I got the dusting mitt out and tidied up inside. I meant to do a sweep of
the floors at some point during the day but woops! I didn’t get to it. Bill and
Duncan took the truck down to the end of the lane and within the hour, they had
the heavy steel entrance gate plus posts removed. The posts must be cemented in
so Duncan got his grinder out to cut them off. We will be replacing this gate with a lighter-weight version before we depart in October.
That gate gets heavier and heavier each year! 😊 Nah, I know it is because Bill of our age that it gets harder to lift and close. Patty, Gibbs and I just hung around up here, sitting in the sun with our books, listening to the melody of all the birds. They are plentiful this spring! 💕
None of us felt too energetic today and why
not on Mother’s Day? Gibbs is learning to sit with us when a vehicle moves up
and down the lane so that is good. He still likes to run beside Daddy’s truck
but at least it is ‘beside’ now instead of around and around, making it
heart-stopping for us.
Even Mrs. Oriole was ever-present
We had westerns for lunch and both Bill and I had our showers before my daughter arrived. Bridgette and Chris arrived at 2:15 and how lovely it was to see their smiling faces and receive their warm affectionate hugs. ♥ We visited for a while before Duncan and Patty returned from a walk and joined us.

The sun was
shining in various stages, clear and then filmy clouds lessened its strength so
it was perfect. The breeze was cool but it helped to keep the pesky flies at
by. Chris was their attraction today and he got bit a few times. ☹

felt tired and with Harry Bosch on the screen, I couldn’t focus on my blog.
That’s my explanation for the late posting and I’m sticking to it! What a
It all turned out very well!
Mother’s Day to all the moms out there!
