My good buddy Richard picked me up at 9:30 this morning and after breezing through Clinton Tim Hortons drive-thru for coffee and muffins we headed out of town in a northwesterly direction. After heading west across Balls Bridge we arrived at our destination minutes later. There is an old abandoned gravel pit alongside the road that Richard and I occasionally stop at for a walk. And that is what we did this morning. It had been quite a while since we had last walked there. It was another few hours well spent with a good friend and meaningful conversation:))
A lot less doddering and a lot more doing today. And, as the song says....What A Difference A Day Makes. Kelly woke up this morning feeling better and with a couple well timed Extra Strength Tylenol I had no pain in my hip which in turn cranked up my energy levels. How can one day in less than twenty-four hours make such a difference? Not for me to ask I suppose but for Kelly and I to simply enjoy the nice day while it was here.
OUR FRONT YARD WHITE MAGNOLIA BLOSSOMS A CLUMP OF DANDELIONS I THINK SOME DANDELIONS HAVE ALREADY GONE TO SEET
Home again, I didn't give myself a chance to fall victim to my comfy cozy recliner. More pine needle raking and wheelbarrowing in the backyard. A few more summer yard ornaments placed and a couple old decorative posts dug in. Cleaned our front yard pond pump as well as the bird baths. First day of the year in a short sleeve shirt and my first walk around the property with my weed whacker. Kelly headed into the Bayfield Library and spent some time browsing through the Main Street Shops which are all open now. Kelly said a lot of tourists were in town taking advantage of today's 61F temps and big bright sunny skies. 'What a Difference A Day Makes' indeed.
