On Thursday, June 29th we weren’t in a rush to get up, although I wanted to nip in as far as Robin’s to water her plants. Most of them are in full sun and I sure don’t want to lose any! I was up and out the door by 7:20, leaving the boys in bed. Good thing I went, a couple of the pots were pretty dry and I needed to dead head all of them. They’re looking good now but will check once more in the morning. She’ll be home tomorrow evening.
in the shower when I returned and had his cereal and orange juice. No coffee
for him this morning as he was scheduled for a stress test. When his Dad had
his heart attack(s) back in 1996(7), it was recommended because of his family
history that Bill should start paying attention. He had a stress test every
year, I believe, while we were working, right up until we retired and left the
area. There was never an issue but at least we knew.
I meant to do this the other day but
this was the Bunnesan school house
before it was bought and remodelled.
Robin and Andrew have done a great job.
When we saw our new doctor in London last fall, he recommended that Bill get one done up here this spring. Okay, so now it is summer and he goes this morning. It is a quick trip to the Durham hospital but I went with him for support. It was a short wait time and once in, it was a mere 20 minutes and he was back out. It went well so we are happy with the result. We are concentrating on his upcoming physio and getting his arm better. 😊
Back home, Bill used the pressure washer and cleaned off the Cub Cadet mower so he could get a better look at the problem with the belt. I worked on the puzzle and Gibbs supervised both by sitting serenely in the shade. After a sandwich for lunch, Bill rode the mower up North Line to the repair shop and Gibbs and I followed in Ptooties to bring him home. Hopefully, it won’t be too long but we know it is a busy time so are not expecting a quick return.
Stalking, er, I mean following my hubby
down the road
Where, hopefully, it won't take too long nor
be too costly. Dreamers! ha!
Love the chainsaw on their mailbox.
The puzzle just needs the sky finished.
Won't take long now!
The rest of the afternoon was a bit of this and that. Bill got my battery mower out and cut the grass, which we call our front yard, and I did a bit of garden weeding and watered my vegetables. They seem to be doing well. When he went to the Hangar, I worked on my puzzle until we got a phone call from our good friend, Jim, to see how Bill is doing. For someone who has many of his own health issues, he sure has a kind heart and it means so much to Bill (us) that he takes the time to call. ♥
I finished all but the sky parts of the puzzle and since Gibbs was inside, I thought I’d stop there for today and sit with the little bum in our hammock. We found a suitable sun/shade spot and relaxed. Once he jumped off to sleep underneath, I actually dozed off for half hour! I never do that! When Bill came up around 5, it was his turn and he had a nice snooze out there too.
The day is a beautiful one. It was a surprise because although the forecasters said hot, 27C/80F, it was supposed to be cloudy. We had sun for 90% of the time and managed to reach 25C/76F feeling hotter with the humidex factor. 😉 After bacon cheeseburgers for supper, Bill went to the Hangar and I closed the Bunky for the evening. I doubt we’ll get rain but it is usually wise to make sure the windows are closed anyway.
What a great day! I started a new book today. A fun read called Joint Custody. The Border Collie is telling the story so you can just imagine!
Thank you for stopping by!
