Where are we today ?

Rained overnight and rained all day, cooler fall temperatures, but hey, thats the time of year. No problem we have inside stuff to do. First coffees and computing and a nice breakfast for Suzie whatever she wants today (it's her birthday after all) and her request was a toasted western sandwich. Then I ran a few errands and she sorted the laundry, I took it next door to our handy laundry facilities to let the machines do their work.
While I was reading a few blogs (one in particular) that Bob, of the Caretaker Chronicles had written, a humorous article about replacing some light bulbs in their apartment in Vienna. I just happened to notice that the light over our kitchen sink mysteriously flickered and died. Hmmm.... a coincidence or what? So I stopped reading for a bit and checked it out. Need a new mini florescent tube. So off to the local Home Hardware store in town and they just happen to have one in stock. This would be the twin to the bulb I replaced about three weeks ago. My bulb replacement job was much easier than Bob's thou, (I did not need a mirror to do it).

That job done just puttered around putting a few things away and check the air pressure in our tires, while she had a nap read some more. Heading back to New Hamburg in the morning for a week just have to go to the International Plowing Match its in Roseville this year about 15 minutes away from the farm. Always a fun place to go when it is close to us. I found one tire was down about 15 lbs pressure so I topped it up with our compressor and will check it again in the morning.
Other than raining all day long it was very nice. Relaxing and just enjoying each other's company, something that we really enjoy. Even a bit of computing and of course more reading as well. Had intended to do some trip planning but just plain ran out of time. Not sure exactly where we wanna got any way other than to Arizona via Florida, but we can always find a place to spend a few days here and there, we have six months to follow the sun down south somewhere.
Soon time for me to prepare supper and once again her choice, so how about a shrimp cocktail, garlic cheese bread, grilled fillet mignon, mushrooms/ onions and a tossed salad, even a glass or two of wine. I think a perfect way to celebrate her birthday. Pretty tasty and very cost effective when I can cook it right here and not have to venture out in the rain. Oh, desert a mini pecan tart.

|yep it's still raining|
Supper time is always a social event for us, usually takes and hour or so (maybe two) to eat, chat and reflect on our day. Tonight we watched the late sun shinning as we had more heavy rains, weird weather we have been having today.
But dishes done, garbage taken out and bit more computing and reading then turn on the tube for bit to see whats new, and fall asleep ads usual.
We had a great relaxing day, perfect for Suzie's birthday just what she requested.
Glad you could stop by and celebrate remotely with us.
