On Saturday, June 10th when I woke up, Bill was already downstairs and Gibbs joined him so I could make the bed. He isn’t sleeping well, not finding a comfortable position for the most part. I feel bad about that but at least he manages to squeeze in his afternoon snooze and that helps. I sorted the dirty clothes and left for town around 7:15. The Mat wasn’t busy just one, no, two ladies this morning doing their laundry.
When I left there, it was almost 9 and this little town was getting busy. There was the Book Sale at the town hall and the Herb Sale at Riverside Park. Along with that, there were a few garage sales plus the regular traffic going through town with campers heading to their cottages. Now that the nice weather has arrived, Durham’s main street gets fairly backed up at the one traffic light we have. #6 is a direct highway to cottage country. Look both ways before crossing, for sure!
I got our
water jug filled, stopped at the Dollar Store to replace our mailbox flag, a
stop at the bank to deposit my laundromat cash, a stop to drop off the bag of abandoned
‘lost and found’ clothes at Rethreads and then a walk through the Herb show and
sale. Oh, I did stop at the Flower Shop garage sale and picked up a few of
their freebies. 😊
These delightful looking shorn Alpacas
were at the Herb Show. You could buy their
home made scarves, hats etc.
Back home, the cloudy morning was turning into partially sunny skies so I hung the clothes on the line with Gibbs being a good boy, hanging nearby. When I opened the door to the Bunky to put my free nails and level away, I screeched at Chippy!
|"You little beggar!"|
He had got in and had already chewed a couple of holes in the new 30kg bag of bird seed. What a mess! That little devil! Gibbs ran around trying to find him while I moved things and cleaned it up.
I had to decide what to do with it as I had no lids for these pails. I was able to empty the bag into the 5-gallon pail and had to place a makeshift lid overtop for the time being. Grrr! I watered the flowers and vegetables and Gibbs and I came inside until Bill got home from flying. He had a pretty good morning, able to fly his plane a bit but mainly, he had a good social outing too. 😊
We had bacon and eggs for lunch and after a snooze, he went into Durham to the hardware. When he returned, he presented me with a new Home Hardware 5- gallon pail WITH lid! Yay! I transferred the seed, sealed it up and felt good, having got the better of the little critter. Later, when I worked on the puzzle, I had to chase him out of the Bunky, hiding in a corner with a few droppings of sunflower seeds in his greedy little paws. LOL
|Finally, I got our flag replaced|
|The clothes dried quickly|
The clothes dried quickly, we reached a lovely 24C/75F, and it was a gorgeous afternoon.
|I got started on the puzzle but had to push myself to walk away|
Even with a Palm Bay vodka cooler in me, it is quite easy.
A nice change from the last one! 😄
|Did you remember the picture from a few|
blogs ago? It's cute.
|Sadly, our peony bush is not happy this year|
She looks healthy but only one bud, one flower.
|Bill surprised me with a bucket with a lid!|
Now, I'm happy that I got the last laugh on Chippy!
. For supper, we had grilled bacon cheeseburgers and then we parted ways, Bill to the Hanger and Gibbs and I to our recliners. 😊
I’m catching up on the Mrs. Maisle series so am quite
content to stay indoors. The puzzle is for daytime pleasure. This has been a
nice day. We’re supposed to get rain for a few days starting overnight or early
morning so I didn’t fill the feeders yet. The birdies will have to understand.
The burgers were good but this brand
I bought are not quite as tasty as the last ones.
Thank you for stopping by.
