On Monday, June 5th Bill was up, showered and off to work shortly after 6:30. He took Black Beauty this morning to Mildmay to pick up the work trailer to take to their work site in Hanover. I had no where to go today so relaxed with Gibbs, drinking my tea and reading my book. It was a cool morning compared to the last few, 9C/49F, and we were under mostly cloudy skies. A different morning for sure.
We’ve put the Blue Flame heater away and have flipped the board on the stoop – telling ourselves not to turn the furnace on – so Gibbs and I put a blanket over ‘our’ legs in the chair. When my tea was done, we went for a walk. 😊 At the end of the lane, Gibbs started barking at a small white Hydro One car parked just a few feet away. When the lady saw us, she came over to explain why she was there.
They are marking trees that either need to be trimmed or cut down to maintain clearance for the wires. We carried on for our walk and back home, I let him off leash to run around while I worked. It was time to fill my planters with the 5 petunias I’d purchased on Sunday. When that was done, because little Mr. “I don’t want to come when you call” was being an imp, I put him on his rope leash. My next job needed my full attention.
I moved Ptooties over to the water pump and proceeded to give her a bath. She was pretty dirty, especially her back end. 😊 It began warming up so I unplugged from power and went about the chore. She sure looked ‘purty’ when I was done! M had called and asked if I could be his Uber at 2 and run him into town for a few errands. I knew he would be asking, I’d talked to him Saturday morning.
While at the Beer Store, Bill pulled up beside us in B.B. Off work early, he’d gone to the Home Hardware for the bags of cement needed for his flag pole. Unfortunately, those 50-lb bags should not be hefted into a pick up truck by someone his age. ☹ He pulled a muscle in his right deltoid/bicep. That doesn’t sound good so as soon as we made one more stop at Foodland, I drove home, dropped M at his place and scooted home to my working man.
He won’t be going anywhere tomorrow, that’s a given – well, unless a miracle happens overnight. We iced it and he dozed before supper. Steak, potatoes and corn on the cob was our meal and it was pretty good. The steak is so thin and it cooked pretty fast so next time, it will be a much shorter grilling. We’ll play it by ear in the morning as to whether we need to get x-rays or not.
Other than that, it was a good day. I worked on the puzzle after Bill was home and was dozing and managed to finish it. There is a piece missing though, so I’ll have to sweep the Bunky in case I’ve dropped it. Here’s hoping Bill has a good night and a better day tomorrow. He went to the Hangar to see if there was something minimal he could do for a while but returned within 15 minutes. He couldn't lift his arm enough to be comfortable. Even eating was a challenge for him.
Thank you for popping by.
