Thursday, June 8th Bill was up with Gibbs at 6 and then after the little bum joined me in bed, Bill stretched out in his recliner. That’s where I found him when I got up at 6:30 to get ready for work. Bill said he didn’t have a very good night’s sleep for which I feel really bad. Some nights, he wears the sling and it helps keep his arm in place but sometimes when he moves his arm, the pain wakes him up. ☹
This morning, I had to work so I headed into Durham before 7 and was alone while I cleaned the Mat. Back home, I found that Bill and Gibbs had gone to the Acreage to get water. When they returned, and water was transferred, Bill loaded the empty propane tank into Black Beauty and headed into town. He wore his sling so it made it obvious that he couldn’t lift the full tank into the truck.
After paying inside, the tank was in the truck and strapped in for him. 😊 I met Bill at the end of the lane as I left to go to M’s for a shift. He has a pickup truck that absolutely ‘needs’ to be finished this week. I worked 4 hours with M, taping and papering the cab and then covering the back end. The truck doesn’t have a box but instead rails and a cargo box that needed to be covered while M painted.

it picked up Friday. It's been sitting too long,
M needed to be pushed on this one, so who better for the job? 😀
I was home at 2 and had to stop Ptooties as soon as I turned into the laneway. Mrs. Yertle, the big Mama from yesterday, was back in the middle. She was either digging, laying or covering her nest so I wasn’t about to disturb her. I don’t know how long she was there but I waited until she finished and headed back to the pond. I’ll check tomorrow to see if there is a new hole. If not, yay!
The rest of the afternoon was quiet. Bill had taken care of our water and propane needs, he’s not helpless even in this state ♥, and also hooked up our 3rd Amazon firestick to the bedroom tv while I was gone. Now, we can watch tv in 3 areas if we choose. 😊 He went to the Hangar for the remainder of the afternoon and I watched more Mrs. Maisle episodes and then NCIS when I started supper.
We had the last of the Chicken Pot Pie and another piece of pineapple cheesecake. Gibbs sat on my lap while I worked on my blog, what a lovebug! Bill returned to the Hangar which means he is being successful at working on his plane to some extent. At least his time at home is not wasted. 😊
This has been a cooler day with mostly cloudy skies. We barely reached 16C/61F and we didn’t get the rain that was a possibility for this afternoon. I hope you’ve enjoyed your day, as we have. My back feels a bit achy from being on my feet in the shop for 4 hours, bending and stretching over the truck. I’m sure after a couple of yoga stretches tonight, I’ll be fine. Before ending the post, today is my oldest sister's birthday so Happy Birthday, Cathy!
Thank you for the visit.
