On Monday, May 1st we welcomed the new spring (hahaha) month in with a bit of a clear sky but a dry day. Nothing to complain about there. It didn’t really warm up too much today, 6C/43F was the high, but neither Bill, Gibbs or I were outside anyway. Bill was up at a ridiculous early hour, unknown to me since I was still in the middle of a dream, and making his thermos of coffee before I woke.
I crawled across the bed, blurry-eyed at 6:30 and went down to kiss him goodbye. He took Ptooties as he had the farthest to drive today. Gibbs and I went back to sleep until 7:30 when we got up. Gibbs was out of sorts already and knew his Daddy wasn’t downstairs. He just lay on the bed curled in a ball while I washed and dressed for my own job.
I had some yogourt and a tea before Gibbs and I went down the lane for a cold walk. The wind was chilly and the clouds had moved in. Leaving the little guy in charge at 9:25, I drove around the corner in Black Beauty to M’s shop and was happy to see him up and moving easily. I knew what he wanted me to do so set about sanding the rocker panels and inside the doors of a truck cab to prepare for painting.
It wasn’t too difficult, only a few spots needed the heavier 120 grit. It was all hand sanding so still took me the 3 hours, including the retouches that M pointed out just when I thought I was finished. 😊 That’s why he is the professional and me to rookie. Back home, before 1, I took a tip from Donna to cook up enough bacon to last me for a few days. Instead of cooking them in the oven like I used to when we had the house, I used Rosy and air fried half strips.
|I'm sad to see the end of this bread|
I'm on the hunt for what my readers have
With a fried egg, some avocado and my last piece of the seeded keto bread, the bacon was a tasty addition. I played my afternoon word games on line and then dug into the crochet pattern I’m working on. This is going much easier and I understand the simple English that the instructions are written in. LOL Around 3, Sandy dropped by with my original laundromat keys and lanyard and my pay for last Saturday’s work. Nice of him.
Still on track with my lunch
When Bill texted me that he was just leaving Durham, I put Gibbs on his leash and we went to meet him. He was so happy to see Daddy return. I was watching more episodes of The Marvellous Mrs. Maisle when he got home. No doubt he was tired from a busy first day and he went up to have his snooze in the bedroom. We both had a good prelude to our seasonal jobs. 😊
For supper, it was mostly leftovers but I also fried mini sausages to fill in the gap. It was filling and tasted just fine – beef and pork do mix. After dishes, we sat together and watched our Monday night programs since we are still getting our satellite connection downstairs. Upstairs, it has been disconnected. This was a good day and we hear that after a very cold day tomorrow (and possibly some white stuff) we will be in to some sunny warm days. Yay!♥
Thank you for the visit!
