I am in wonderment when gazing at the Sunflowers so high up on their stalks. How sturdy those stalks are to hold such a weight of beauty.
While I organized my morning with minute chores such as the making of our bed, the folding of laundry and getting myself dressed for the day at hand, Rob was off to pickup a friend who was coming to his aid by way of helping him out with getting some
While I was busy canning and preparing Dinner the guys had been very busy working up a sweat themselves.
Once they had cleaned up what logs had been up at the house, they headed back to work on some more in our bush.
By the time Rob was ready to take Mike back home I had finished up with the tomatoes and done up one load of dishes. We weren't only dropping Mike home, we also were going to pickup the window we had purchased for our Bathroom on Sunday and drop around some tomatoes and cucumbers for my Auntie Gladys and Uncle Basil in Port Elgin.
My Auntie Gladys has been feeling poorly the past few days, so I also took along some leftovers for Uncle Basil's supper.
Part of the conversation on driving Mike home included Bear skat in our bush. This is a good indication why I would never walk back into our Bush by myself with the dogs, as I KNEW there were bears in there !!! I will only go with Rob on the back of the ATV in order for us to have a quick get away ....
Which brings to mind a conversation Rob and I had just the other day ...
Me: What dog did that (referring to a pile of dog poop very close to the house).
Rob: Obviously the one who isn't very shy.
Hahahaha ... we had a pretty good chuckle over that one.
We dropped Mike around to his house, dropped in on Auntie and Uncle, picked up our window, swung into Walmart to pickup a few items in the amount of $138..70, which included 4 bags of Pedigree Dog Food on sale for $5.00 less a bag, and some more hopefully healing product for our Bandit's hot spots that just won't clear up. Thank goodness I hadn't included their food and requirements in the September Savings Budget Challenge, or the budget would have been surely blown today !
We had to stop around to our mechanics to pickup Rob's "Crabby Cabbie" vehicle then finally arrived home to four very happy to see us, "Checkerboard Aussies". Just after 7:00 pm I found myself back in the kitchen doing up yet another sink full of dishes while I cooked up bacon for our Supper of Toasted Bacon and Tomatoes.
Tomato or Ta-mot-to? I see many more in my future, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".
