Post 3606 - Back From Break

Well, that was fun. Did you miss me? I missed you.

We are back in the city, after a couple days at the cottage. As long as we thought the lawn would be, it was even longer. In places, it was up to my hips. I spent hours and hours on Friday afternoon and into the evening, mowing the lawn, with the blade all the way up. I had to re-fill the gas tank twice, and had to stop the lawn tractor several times in order to clear grass away from the blade.

Thanks to the anti-histamine I had to take to prevent the hay fever from killing me, I turned in early Friday night and slept for the better part of twelve hours. I mowed some more on Saturday and took another anti-histamine, so I slept most of Saturday afternoon. When I was awake, Patricia and I watched episodes of season three of "Better Call Saul". We finished watching the season Sunday morning.

Patricia was quite grateful to see the rough cut of the lawn done, at long last.

There was time for some fun. We dipped into Pictou Friday morning and had lunch at Fat Tony's. We both had soup. I had turkey vegetable. Patricia had cream of zucchini. We shared a privateeer's bounty or whatever the hell they called it. Fries and onion rings and  mozza sticks and chicken wings and veggies. Not bad. Not sure it was worth $26, though. The food over all was pretty good, and the location is terrific. They clearly spent a ton of money on the place. Downtown Pictou has much more to offer than one would expect. I still miss the pub that was across the street, though. What was that place called? The Pressroom? Something like that.

But other than that one trip together, it was either work or sleep or watching "Better Call Saul". Friday afternoon, Patricia did dip into New Glasgow for provisions. She bought enough stuff to last us until we shut the place down again in November. Fridge freezer is full up.

We returned to the city this afternoon. We spent the evening taking it easy and getting ready to return to work in the morning.

Three day weekends go by too quickly. What is up with that?

I think I will turn in. Newbie is getting lonely.

See you tomorrow.
