On Friday, Sept. 22nd we didn’t have an alarm to wake us. Yay! Bill gets to sleep in which means I kind of do too. I was the ‘judge and jury’ on when to rise today. So, it was 7 when I did my few stretches and got up for work. Gibbs went back to bed with Bill until they got up at 7:30.
Some pink clouds in the morning
but it didn't bring unfortunate weather.
The Mat was empty and although messy (!!) I was finished with the routine with minutes to spare. That means that instead of a quick floor wash, it got a thorough one. Sometimes it is just a spot wash but this was much better. 😊 I left there after writing my hour on the calendar in the office AND writing a note that I need to check the Lost and Found box on Sunday. It is filling up again.
I love this array of colour here
just as we approach Durham.
This is a newly built home, gorgeous!
I drove to the Water Store and had a little chit chat with Mark, the owner. He is a super nice man and when I told him about the ‘deer miss’ (heh heh) he said he would take our Suite to London on the 18th of Oct. if we needed him to. Can you believe that? 😊 Thankfully the way things are going, we should be on track with having Black Beauty back home on time.
|I was hoping to capture some pretty|
fall colours on our drive today but
they disappointed me.
At 10 I popped over to take M into town for a couple of stops before the weekend. We were done and back home before 11. We drove there right away and were able to pick up this Dodge Ram. The joke is that we always say ‘no way!’ to a Dodge but she is pretty and I followed Bill out of the venue down the street to Billy’s house for a quick howdoyado?
|It was still a pretty day|
We parted ways at Mount Forest and I stopped in Foodland for a couple of items we needed and was home about 10 minutes before Bill. He’d made a stop as well. We were both hungry but since we’re going out for supper, we just had a nibble to tie us over. Soon enough, it was time to get cleaned up and hop in the truck for the drive to Walkerton.
|You might need to squint to see him|
|There he is! 💖|
|The noise was the sprayer doing the|
fields in the area
We stopped in Hanover to pick Donna and Gerry up, Gayle and John followed us and Cathy and Bill had already arrived at Old Joe’s Cabin restaurant. Cards were passed around as we were celebrating 4 birthdays. Gayle’s had passed but we hadn’t gathered for hers yet, mine, my Bill’s at the end of the month and Cathy’s Bills mid-week. Lots to celebrate and quite a stretch in age difference. I can still claim to be the youngest! 😊
|Bill's ride for a week or so|
|It's a Dodge but it's pretty! 😂|
Bill and I had the fish and chips and I loved my meal along with a dill Caesar. Yum, lip smacking go-o-o-d! We sat and chatted until almost 8:30 when we parted ways after hugs all around.
What a great evening, I really enjoyed it. I was really tired when I got home, could have been partly the drink, but instead of finishing my blog, I went to bed with Gibbs and watched one episode of The Handmaid’s Tale. Couldn’t stay awake any longer than that! We’ve had a great day and are one step closer to getting things ready.
Thank you for stopping by.
