On Monday, Sept. 18th we woke to a foggy morning. Bill was up for work and left at 6:30. I was up and left at 7, hoping it would have cleared off by then. It hadn’t so I was a bit nervous and watchful. It really wasn’t as bad as I expected, which was good.😊

and got thicker (like pea soup per Daddy)
as I got closer to Durham
I was alone for most of my hour at the Mat until my friend, a regular guy (I don’t know his name), came in. We caught up and then I was out of there, on my way home by 8:15.
I spent some time with my little guy and was happy that he’d eaten his breakfast this morning. It’s hit or miss with him. At 9:45, I made my thermos of coffee and changed into my ‘it’s okay to get dirty’ work clothes and drove Black Beauty over to M’s. We made a quick trip into town and I set to work on the Datsun for an hour. M asked if I’d put on my secretary hat and help him with a couple of phone things, the videos for his security camera for one.
With that done, now he can at least see who comes in the laneway. You’d have to understand/see his home set up to get this but he has no windows from his apartment to the driveway but he gets a text message that ‘someone’ or ‘animal’ is in the lane. Lastly, we checked his Kijiji ad for new business and made sure it had some time left. I finished up with power sanding on the car’s door panels and left for home at 1.
I made up one of my original quesadillas for lunch and enjoyed it fully. Then Gibbs and I went outside for a run around the yard. He didn’t get his walk today until around 3:30 and then it was a short one as Mom was being a wimp. “It’s cold, let’s turn around!” 😊 Back inside, I delved back into my book. I finished the hat yesterday so reading was today’s agenda. Bill was home around 4:30 and he and Gibbs had their snooze beside me.
For supper, I baked 2 Teriyaki chicken kabobs, fried the leftover potatoes for Bill and cooked corn and beans as our side. I had fresh ‘garden’ tomatoes with mine. It was a good meal, topped off with homemade applesauce and yogourt. Today was a fall-like day with some rain showers, very little sun and a chilly breeze. I didn’t much like it but before the week ends, we will be into fall. That just means our time is that much shorter here on the Ridge.
This was a good day. I enjoyed the work today, nothing difficult, just dirty. 😊 We are dropping down again in overnight temps, 4C/40F, so I put my vegetable planters in the Bunky for the night.
We will be warming up again in a couple of days so at least don’t need our propane heater out yet.

Thank you for the visit! (PS – Bill is working on a blog post tonight. You can check it out here.)
