Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.
Talk about a strange sleeping pattern. As soon as the 11 o’clock News was finished last night we went to bed. The strange thing was that neither of us could fall asleep and when midnight rolled around we both went to the computers. Not wanting to take any chances I first went to the kitchen to make some Sleepy Time Tea to make certain that we would fall asleep. Don’t be confused this is not a sleep aide only a tea that helps you to relax. It is also not fast acting so we even had time to play a few games before we actually started feeling like we’d actually sleep. It was just after 1:00 before we returned to bed hoping to get some shut eye. Neither of us could have been in bed longer than two minutes before drifting to sleep.
I woke totally refreshed by 7:00 and had finished my morning reading by the time Kathy woke. While having breakfast we made our plans for the day. Since the weather was still cool but slowly warming we’d run some morning errands so that I could get back to work on the car this afternoon. The first thing I had to do was load things in the truck so I needed to use a shopping cart from downstairs. Other than a single container that got put in the truck bed one side of the back seat was for things going to the trailer and the other side was for STUFF that we were donating.
The first place we went was Guardian Storage to drop things off at the trailer. We were a little surprised when we got there because there were still puddles of standing water all around the trailer even though they had recently laid fresh gravel down. It was also very muddy walking around the trailer so I handed Kathy our dining chair that I’d repaired back at the apartment so she could put I back at the table along with a few other things. I tried locating something I wanted to work on but with my luck it was probably in the last container I would have searched so we’ll just leave it until spring when I’ll empty the basement.
Our next stop was Value Village where they were happy to have our STUFF to help support local charities. It was past lunch so we used a coupon and had lunch at A&W. As I was about to sit down with our food order I saw into the back of the truck the container I’d forgot to leave at the trailer. We made another trip back to the storage yard to drop that container off at the trailer.
It was nearly 1:30 by the time I got outside to work on the car. The temperature only reached a high of 37 F (2 C) today with 15 mph (27 km) wind blowing from the north. The way they make cars today you can barely get your finger tips in to work on it. By the time I’d replaced the heater fan I needed to take a break because that cool breeze had been blowing up my back and I was cold.
While I gathered another layer of clothes to wear Kathy made us Hot Chocolate and served us the last of her Homemade German Chocolate Pie for a snack that helped refresh and warm me up before I headed back outside.
When I went to test the fan it went to start and then it stopped. Murphy was smiling over my shoulder as the fan resistor had just blown. It was past 4:30 so I called it a day because even with the Hot Chocolate Kathy had served me and the extra layer of clothes I’d added I was still cold.
We just had Chicken noodle soup for supper because Kathy wasn’t feeling well by then. As of the writing of this post I’m starting with a scratchy throat and congestion. Murphy can leave anytime. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!
It’s about time.
