It’s Friday, June 16th; no real TGIF for us now, they all feel like a weekend but we are still on the downward slope to one. We thought it was supposed to be a sunny day but when we woke and got up, it was very damp and cloudy outside. I didn’t have to go to the Mat this morning until 10:30. Sandy, my boss, asked if I would mind going in later and training a new gal for him. Kind of for me, so I can take days off. 😊
|Last night, as the sun began its departure|
it was a pretty sky
I met Alison in town and I took her through the steps. She is young, maybe mid 30’s, and I know she picked things up quickly. What’s the saying? It isn’t rocket science. 😉 After about 30 minutes, I ‘released’ her so she could go to the office, no point in her following me around while I cleaned. Nice gal. She will also fill in for my absence during Ladyfest in August.
Bill found my finch feeder and some niger seed in the Suite's
small compartment at the back so I filled that, filled a hummer
feeder, since the Orioles and Hummers are still around
and when we came inside, Gibbs crashed. 💖
Bless his little canine heart!
I stopped at Foodland for a few more ‘out ofs’ and scooted home. Bill had dumped the black tank and was working on the tire of the Blue Boy/honey wagon. It has a faulty tube so will need to be replaced, making the ‘pull’ back and forth easier. We had some b & e for lunch and then when he went back out to finish up, I vacuumed the Suite. Gibbs managed to get out of the way whenever I got too close. He used to bark at it, now he just avoids it.
We all went out, done with the chores, and I started a new puzzle. This will be fun too! Gibbs was very good, sticking close to the Bunky, the patio chair and down to check on Daddy but when we came in around 4, tea time, he was more than anxious to ‘go in the house’. ♥ He was asleep on the back of my chair almost immediately. Bless his little heart.
I made my tea and started today’s post before sitting with a new book. Yes, I finished ‘I Found You’ last night at 11:30. I couldn’t put it down so stayed up for that reason alone. LOL Good thing I was able to sleep in this morning until 7:30. 😊 This one is called The Couple Next Door by Shari Lapena and it is another page turner already!
We had leftover meatloaf for supper with a garden salad with the addition of my home-grown spinach plus stove top stuffing. I think just the salad and meat would have been enough for me. I don’t seem to have much of an appetite lately and get full quickly. After cleanup and the dishwasher was running, Bill went to the Hangar and Gibbs and I sat to finish my post. Without him sitting behind me, I don’t know if I could manage!
|We have one more night of leftover meatloaf.|
It used to last us only 2 meals but we've been
eating less and rationing more - and not starving!
On that note:
This was a good day and the weekend is upon us. Thank you for stopping in. Your comments are always welcome!
