First thing I first took Missy Mercedes out, then Lexus, and lastly Bandit. It was actually not too cold this morning, so we all rather enjoyed the early morning romp much better then the freezing cold mornings of the past few days.
I puttered around a bit, took Bandit and Mercedes out again, this time out into the back field for a big romp, back in again to have myself a shower, then put a load of laundry in the washer, and puttered some more. At this point I was starting to get tired of the "puttering" around so much.
I even displayed the great deal I got at our local Drugstore for next Christmas. I was so impressed at what a great deal I had gotten !
Before I knew it, it was 1:00 pm, and I am thinking half the day was over and my Crabby Cabbie should be "de-crabbified" with enough sleep by now !!! I went in and said, "Honey, are you awake cause I am lonely and bored waiting for you to get up". Amazingly enough, he got up and wasn't even "crabby" about doing so .... lucky me, eh? LOL.
My Aunt Gerry and Uncle Reg are up from the City of Toronto visiting Auntie Gladys and Uncle Basil. This is an annual visit about this time every year. Rob and I had to drop over to Port Elgin anyway to pickup a few items that had been offered to us by Auntie Gladys' friend, so I could not be so close by without stopping over there to say "hello" to everyone.
Once Rob had a coffee into him, we headed out ....
After driving the winding road from Sauble Beach to Southampton we were finally heading across the bridge over the Saugeen River.
Once we arrived at Auntie Gladys and Uncle Basil's, it just so happened my Cousin Vi, and her husband, Ross, were there having a "hello" as well. It was an enjoyable little get together, until there was a "mishap" .....
We had a nice afternoon of sharing stories and a few laughs. Vi and Ross had to run a couple of errands, so they took off a little bit before Rob and I did.
Rob and I were able to stay put for a bit and enjoy a little more of the Aunt and Uncles stories and company.
Since Rob had told me he didn't want any more chicken for a month, and not to take out anything for today's dinner, I was assuming he was going to be taking us out for Dinner after our visit with the Aunts and Uncles. Since it was getting to be that time of day, we had to say our good-byes.
Rob did take us out for Dinner .....
We had never been to a Crabby Joe's Restaurant before. I have to say, we both really enjoyed our Caesar Salads and T-Bone Steaks. The steaks were on special for $15.00 per meal, a $3.00 discount off regular price, and $2.99 each for the side of Caesar, which was a good size salad. We both agreed we would definitely go back there again for a meal.
On our way out of Port Elgin, we had to stop into Cousin Vi and Ross's
We finally got started back on our way home again, to where a very happy Bandit and Lexus were waiting for us (Mercedes, being the baby, had been with us). Home sweet home after a great afternoon and evening out with Family members and each other. I absolutely loved it !!!
Oh yes, and I also rid myself some more of that awful "Cabin Fever" I have been getting bouts of the past couple of weeks.
Here I sit thinking, this is the latest I think I have ever done my "blog". I am now content it is done, and I can take my leave hopefully towards a fitful night sleep for myself, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".
