Rob came in at 4 am and that did wake me up.
We have the weirdest conversations some times when he comes home at times in the wee hours of the morning. This morning he had to tell me someone had dropped off pamphlets for us to Doug when we had been away, and Doug wanted to know if I was Jehovah Witness? *Sigh* no I am not, but when they used to come to the door when I was younger I used to tell them I was "Born Again Christian" and that would be the end of that. I have no problem with anyone else having their own beliefs, but please respect I have my own and do not push yours down my throat. I think that is fair enough.
Finally Rob drifted off back to sleep and I got a bit more rest before getting up for the day.
Vicki & I took a trip up to the Mar Market this morning to have a gander around a bit. Not to busy with vendors, nor customers, at 9 am.. I got quite a lovely surprise from a purchase Vicki had made...
I am very lucky to have Vicki as a BFF friend, as the handful of other really amazing friends I have. You never need an abundance of friends, but you do need friends who give and take an abundance of friendship and love.
Once Vicki and I had gotten home from the market, Rob had been awake and up. We had made plans to go view a couch today up in Singhampton, which is up the other side of Collingwood.
We all loaded into the van, along with Portia, with Rob stopping for a beverage along the way ...
We got it at a steal and will fit in beautifully with the new leather recliner chairs we just ordered. I am very happy with the excellent used condition and quality of the new to us (again) leather couch we have purchased. When something is in such condition I could care less if it is brand new to us, as it serves the same purpose and us a good buck. We are to pick it up next week.
Speaking of prices, we stopped at Almonds in Meaford to check out the Wild Blueberries they had advertised on their sign. We were soon to leave as $12.00 a pint for the blueberries and $12.00 per lb. for Garlic was a little bit to rich for our blood. YIKES !!!!
We got back home mid-afternoon to then get ready to head out on our motorcycles for a Chinese Dinner Buffet. It was good and the first Rob and I had ate all day, except for the 1/3 cup of Bran Buds I did have for breakfast, and a pear he had on our afternoon tour.
Back to the regular work grind tomorrow as Monday morning rolls around again, Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard.
