Well another great sunny day and we have things to do today. So coffees and computing then I take a short drive to Pettigrew's Garage in Plattsville where the locals show up early for a coffee and chat before heading out for the day.

Breakfast done I made a quick trip to New Hamburg for some things while they chatted and cleaned up the kitchen. Now back to a clean empty kitchen, I carved up our turkey for monday lunch and put the carcass on to simmer for a turkey soup. With Suzie's help I made up three dozen mini pecan tarts, with spelt flour, so that Dennis can eat them, for Thanksgiving lunch on sunday at Suzie's Aunt Delores in Kitchener another large get together. The tarts are pretty labour intensive, but so good.
Now I can get outside and cut some grass for a bit, sunshine and fresh air and a fun lawn mower to drive. I just got going and we had company drop by, friends from Stratford that bought and nice rv last year and a membership at Rock Glen Resort. We missed them at the resort this year so they dropped by to chat and return a couple of rv books we loaned them. We chatted for a bit and they headed out for a family function so we could get back to work cutting the grass and Suzie raking the black walnuts from the lawn, about 6 wheelbarrow loads so far.

We are so lucky to be able to enjoy great summer weather at this time of year, and the farmers are able to get their crops of the land as well.
