On Wednesday, May 17th I slept in until 7 when Bill came up to kiss me goodbye. Gibbs was on protection duty and barked when Bill came up the stairs. We didn’t get up until 7:45, lazy or what? When we got up I had my tea and then we sat huddled inside. I say huddled because it was darn cold outside! It was only -1C/30F. No frost though so that made Bill’s exit easier without a defroster.
Gibbs and I went for a walk. I was bundled up in a hoody and my down winter
jacket and gloves – again. I thought I was done with that. I can say that the
sun was lovely and helped to warm things up as best it could. It was the wind
that was against us today. We didn’t
walk very far, just to the edge of the front field and back. My decision, not
further delay, I have news. Last night around supper time we received a call
from Krystal, Bill’s daughter. We are new grandparents to a bouncing baby boy!
He’s almost 3 weeks early but is a healthy 8 lbs. 6 oz. We are more than
excited to welcome little Alexander George. No picture yet but as soon as I do,
I’ll share it with y’all. Congratulations Krystal and Matt!
|"But I'm not ready to come in yet"
today, the morning went fast after sleeping in so before long it was lunch
time. I fried an egg and some bacon and toasted the last of my keto cinnamon
toast. I sure held on to that for as long as possible! Then, since it had
warmed up, we went out again. I was layered up but not for long.
was taking a suggestion that I received from Bridgette on Sunday. We were
looking at the dreaded corral hills and she suggested hostas to fill in the
spaces around the irises that I planted last fall. So, not an easy chore at all
because it is so rocky and there isn’t a lot of dirt there to begin with. I
worked away for a couple of hours and Gibbs kept a close eye on me and
everything that was going on around us. Such a good little guy, too bad he can’t
handle a shovel. ♥
to get quite a large area done and if the hostas don’t take, being in the rocky
terrain or the full sun, I’ll just continue to add more irises until it is
full. It’s all to benefit us in the long run and hopefully make things easier
at cutting time. 😊 Gibbs and I sat outside until I got
too chilled since the sun was dropping behind the trees. We waited for Bill
inside and within 10 minutes he pulled in the drive.
For supper, I made hamburger stew in Madame IP and we were eating shortly after 6. I actually planned something on time! We watched the last couple of episodes of Sullivan’s Crossing while I worked on my blog. I feel muscles in my shoulders, legs, ankles and lower back so need to do some of those famous yoga stretches before bed. I have to clean in the morning. 😊

a good day and warmer weather arrives tomorrow after another night below
freezing. Good grief!
Thank you for the visit.
