Today is Saturday, June 4th. Last night’s sleep was not a good one, I find that when I am over tired, that happens. Oh well, I slept in until 8:30 and pushed myself out of bed to get on with this day.
First on the agenda was laundry so I took 3 loads in shortly after 9 and was back with the clothes by 10. Bill had cut the front field while I was gone and we sat and had a coffee together before he got back at it and I hung my clothes on the line. The wind was very calm but the sun was glorious in the blue sky and the temperature was already 15C.

We thought it would be nice to have a dinner ‘party’ so I called Rob and Pat and invited them to a barbecue dinner and a fire. It was so warm out that an early bonfire would be fun. Once that offer was accepted, we hopped in the car and drove to Mount Forest to the Home Hardware.

They have the exact same lawn chairs that we’d bought 8 or so years ago from them. Since Bill’s bit the dust down south this past winter and my arm rest has started to crack, we needed to buy replacements. We love the high back in this easy lightweight folding style.

I popped the dishes in the dishwasher and Bill started the fire in our pit. I was still in shorts and a tee at this time and when Donna and Gerry arrived around 7 it was time to change into warmer clothes. How lovely that the wind was almost non-existent giving us a pleasant evening.
Rob and Pat left around 9 or so and the rest of us called it an evening at 10. I knew my body was needing a good sleep so by 10:30 I was off to bed.

|I'm in the middle testing the second chair, very comfy chairs|
This was a fantastic day! We have accomplished a lot today, clean clothes put away, lawns cut and our first dinner party this spring. First of many, we hope. I hope you’ve enjoyed the day as well.
