I woke up at my normal ‘wake up’ time and wasn’t surprised to see the clock say 5:55. This means I can drop back off and take my time getting up. Clemson was snuggled as close as possible beside me where he’d been all night. Neither of us moved much through the last 7 hours, I’m sure of it. At 7:25 I woke again and started my stretches. So did Clemmy.
After making my tea and texting Bill that we were up I opened up my laptop. Mom had a pharmacy bill due so I went about paying that. In doing so, I noticed that her bills had come out (namely her rent and living expenses) for the month and her pensions had gone in. I was pleased to see that her OAS (Old Age Security) pension had increased, must be the cost of living kicking in. Bonus! I didn’t even know that happened.
|wispy clouds are all I saw today|
|The sun controlled the sky|
|And three of us walk today, wait a minute!|
|More of that pretty wildflower fills this ditch|
|This mud puddle is the entrance to one of the cornfields|
It looks like it is FINALLY drying up
|Clemson leads the way with his wiggle (another W word)|
|UPS dropped my Avon at the gate|
|One tree among many is changing its costume|
|this is the Children Playing sign we tell visitors about|
Our road is the next right after seeing it
|Across the road from the sign is this house - Divine Love|
|Our corner, the church is too far|
|Another sign just as you turn right|
|Love the colour!|
That done, I opened the Avon box and remembered that besides the shampoo and conditioner, I had ordered a new colour of nail polish. I don’t always wear polish, seems to come in spurts. Recently talking to my sister about it, we notice that our fingernails are constantly in need of cleaning. Nail polish covers that and also takes the urge to nibble on the tips at the same time. So, I've started painting them again.
|this morning, Downey decided to attack this dead tree|
|He was really pounding at all sides of it|
Notice how far back he was bending?
That was the force of his movement
|Pieces of bark were flying everywhere!|
|The bark from his day's work|
|then I saw 4 or 5 of these beautiful jays|
|I filled this with peanuts and slivered almonds to attract them|
|And it didn't take long for these two to have a stare off|
|sitting in my king chair, this guy landed on the hydro box|
|I could see this guy from all the way up the laneway|
It has been a good day here but better now that my guy is home safe and sound. I hope your day was a good one too.
|the close of another wonderful day|
