Sunday morning, Halloween. We slept in a bit later, which bothered Kooper, who wanted us up and about. He checked on us a few times to check if we were there yet and still breathing.
GrpaRick got up before me watched a movie, and had a bowl of cereal. He started his work clothes laundry, dressed, and went outside. He came inside out of breath, so I asked why. He is so focused…he took out the air compresser to clean out the carbs on the ice auger we bought Thursday evening. He showed me the chamber and the tiny hole the gas pumps through, that malfunctions with the tiniest little particle blocking the hole.
We had driven in the rain at night an hour away to Cotton Lake, MN, to purchase the auger. I live-shared our location enroute so the seller could see when to expect us. The seller, a “snowbird” soon leaving for winter in Arizona, was technologically impressed. So, when we go ice fishing with winter our new auger will dig through deeper, thicker ice.
Several seagulls just flew overhead, heading east to west, as I shared a popsicle with the pups, and drank my morning coffee.
Today, is the birthday of one of my mom’s beloved cousins. Every year we all wish her a blessed, heavenly birthday on her facebook site. Perhaps, she and my mom are visiting and laughing over a cup of coffee with other family up in heaven. That is a nice thought!
It is overcast, breezing, and chilly out. The clouds are blowing southward, and the skies are clear and blue to the North. I am hoping the sunshine will warm things up around here.
Yesterday, GrpaRick emptied a small shed, and moved it 90°’s. He rearranged the summer fishing gear with our winter ice fishing gear. Our Trailblazer was emptied out of our four rods, a bucket for fish, two tackle boxes, fishing nets, life jackets, the aluminum paddles, floor and benches, the hull, a large battery for the trolling motor, and the motor itself, the bag containing the inflatable raft, and of course, the air pump. Everthing, except the raft bag, go inside the Trailblazer. The reels and some tackle get transferred to the icefishing gear.
Yesterday, my oldest granddaughter held my youngest granddaughter for the first time. Cousin Charlee will be 17 by the time Breeze turns 1 year. Charlee’s sister, Layla, will be almost 12.
You are all so precious to me, my dear grandchildren! I am proud of who each of you are and I always will be! Have a Safe and Enjoyable, Happy Halloween!
Postscript: I just cut up more apples for two pies. I used premade pie crusts, added sugar cinnamon, sugar & flour & baked. I have vintage pie crust cutouts, so I cut a apple-shaped holes on the top crust.
