Where are we today ?
When I was at Mom's the other day she mentioned her bathtub taps dripping, I checked them out, Moen taps, so stopped by the Home Hardware in Plattsville to see if he had the replacement cartridge. Not sure which model so Len gave me both models and said, "just bring back the one you don't need". Gotta love the Moen taps, free replacement cartridges for life. Mom's house is 18 years old with the original taps so certainly a good deal!
Again still love the quiet country drive into Waterloo taking all the back roads, no expressways for this guy.

Got to Ma's and to work on the tub taps, she made us a coffee and chatted while I removed to old one and installed the new cartridge, no more drips. She's happy and we had a nice chat, visit and a coffee. Ma told me that the Canadian Tire Gas bar around the corner had cheap gas today (5 cents a litre off). Once I left there, around the corner and into line for a few minutes (it moved pretty quick).
|this guys is taking advantage of the sale|
The price around the region today is $126.9 per liter ($4.79 per US Gallon) but with the discount $121.6 a liter ($4.59 per US gallon). Only put 20 litres in the car and saved a dollar. Our Coach is too far away to take advantage of the savings maybe 200, litres of fuel but would use 16 litres of fuel ($19.30) to drive here just to save $10.00 does not make a lot of sense to me.
Back home to Plattsville and a storm is coming from the west, wind howling with thunder and lightning. Before we know it the heavy rains are upon us, with a bit of hail in the mix. But it did not last too long, the sun came back out and all was pretty good once again.

So while it was raining I whipped up a batch of mini pecan tarts with my pastry made from cream cheese, butter and flour, very rich and moist. These were a gift for Lea, for this wonderful campsite. (don't tell her but we had a taste too), sorry forgot the picture. Then I whipped up a tuna Helper, with chicken instead of tuna, a tossed salad and fresh baked bun for supper, she is on the run tonight. Finished her school bus run at 4:30 and has to leave for her job at the Home depot by 5 pm. So we had a quick bite and visit with her and Jamie then she is off to work.

Now all this fun in one day and its winding down, compute for a bit, read a while and turn on the tube for a few minutes before I fall asleep.
Once again thanks for stopping by.
