Rainy day stuff got done.

Where are we today ?
Arkona Ontario
        Woke up early this morning to the soothing sound of rain on the roof of our coach. It was so nice and refreshing for a change. Overcast and rainy most of the day. Perfect timing because we had a few chores to do. Defrost our fridge and clean it out, then our florescent light over the sink burned out, I checked at the store in the park, no tubes here but can order one in for you if you like, maybe later I said.  Suzie sorted the laundry and I headed to the laundromat in town letting the machine do the work, while I read my book, like these laundromats. Next door was the hardware store, so I checked there for the RV light and amazingly they had one in stock, bonus! 
        A couple hours later I return with the laundry, and Suzie had vacuumed, washed floors and dusted, wow like a new house. Helped make the bed then we were able to sit outside for a while and read a bit more until time for supper.
       Cleaning out the freezer earlier I found a nice piece of leftover pork loin roast, stuffed with bacon, sausage and spinach (see recipe tab above if you want). Well the microwave did nice job of reheating this while I boiled a few new potatoes and couple more cobs of excellent corn.
it heated up just perfect
         A package of very tasty mushroom gravy to drizzle over top and we had an awesome meal.
so tasty
        Afterwards we relaxed out side with our books for a while, and had a nice visit with a very nice lady from this campground. She has been here since 1974 and has so many interesting stories to tell. We don't get to chat with her very often but she stayed until dark before we decided time to call it a night and retire inside.
        I can post the blog and even watch a bit of tv and still get to bed at a decent time, after all we have had a busy couple of weeks.
        Thanks for stopping by again and hope you had a good day too.

  1. Great Minds think alike! It was our Laundry and Cleaning day as well. Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  2. We really need the rain here. There is a burn ban which means no campfires. I wish it would rain. It's not often I've said that.

    1. We had the burn ban for quite a while , all is good now.

  3. Raining in Maine today. Going to see a movie and grocery shop. Where are you two heading in October? Would love to catch up. We head south in November, first Orlando than towards Arizona.

    1. Thats kinda our route too, good chance that we will run into you for sure! Drive safely.

  4. Just another domestic type day in paradise. Nice that yo found that light tube.

  5. Great looking dinner - and pretty simple looking too.

  6. Glad you found your light bulb. Delicious looking dinner you put together. Spent a couple hours at the laundry yesterday, Lolita likes the commercial dryers there, so much faster then the parks. Relaxed like you and just read a bit.


We love it when you take the time to drop us a line.
