It was a very foggy start to the day on Thursday, Aug. 3rd. We rose about 7 and Bill commented on how much he likes our new bamboo pillows. I pretty much sleep well, no matter what pillow or what bed I’m sleeping in. After our coffee and tea and blog reads, Bill checked our fresh water tank. We knew it was getting down since we’d shared some of our last fill up with Gerry when they arrived.
This is never a problem, water is easily accessible and Bill can go, fill our bladder and return within half an hour. We will go once more before the weekend to top us up and George will need water for their motor home. I felt the cooler air slipping in through the windows as I sit here writing so had to close a few. 18C is a big change from 28C of the previous day! Looks like a few days of storms ahead.

George and Suzie headed off to visit family around 10:30 and I left soon after as I had one quick stop in town. After my stop, I dropped in on Mom and got my weekly hugs and kisses. She was adorned in her necklaces and was thrilled to see me. I was happy to see her working on a small jigsaw puzzle by herself. Even though she admits that she is often lonely, she finds things to do to fill the time.
When I left her at her dining table for lunch I stopped to say hello to Aunt Mary. She watched me cross the dining area with Mom and I would never think of leaving the room without stopping. She was dressed in a white blouse and I complimented her on her appearance. I said bye bye to her and waved a few more times to Mom as I made my way to the exit.
I returned home after picking up a couple of greeting cards at Smart Buys. Bill had finished installing the new solar motion light we bought and we sat down to read. We walked to the mailbox after seeing the mail truck stop. Just flyers and our Trailer Life magazine but things we always expect.

Before at dark you needed to carry a flashlight or lantern
|Another wonderful page turner|
Anyway, it dawned on me that I had gone all day up until 6 without drinking any water. I should know better. The morning teas don’t seem to be enough some days and even though it was not a hot day with me sitting outside, it affected me. So, I grabbed a bottle from the fridge and drank most of it immediately.

I put my post together sitting in my chair and downloaded pictures in the morning. I’m not going to push my luck tonight by staring at a computer screen too long. I’ve had a pretty good day, a little quieter, a little cooler and a little more relaxed. I hope you have as well.
