Another great summer day here, getting family stuff done.

Where are we today ?
        Hey another wonderful hot day here, mostly sunshine and humid, shorts t- shorts and sandals. Me kinda loving it. Got the walkabouts done early and my project today is to wait for the guy to come and pump out our sewage tanks. Good deal here, he comes right to us complete pump out $30.00. OR, we can pack up the coach, drive 10 miles each way and dump for $10.00 but in the process use at least $15.00 worth of fuel, so makes sense to stay here. Plus we extended the porta potty lease for 2 more weeks, good deal here too. Oh yeah the guy that came here was George, wonderful name!
        Suzie off this morning to pick up her mom, pack up Grandmas' stuff getting ready to move to the nursing home, then take her mom to Stratford hospital and visit her Dad. He is doing well after hip replacement surgery Tuesday, but not eating yet, some stomach issues so maybe be there another day.
          While waiting for George, I did and interior clean on the car and gave myself a haircut, even got a chance to read for a while too.
          We got our sewage tanks pumped at 1:30 this afternoon then I took a quick trip to visit my Ma in Waterloo. Smoke detector making noises. Checked it all out and appears some spiders like to live in there, could cause an issue. Batteries test ok so looks like problem solved.
          Suzie back home to "Camp Awesome" about 4:30 just after I went for a refreshing dip in the pool.
our coach and car, Suzie's dads car and Lea's school bus,
ready for Tuesday morning
          Soon time to fire up our Weber Q and grill a couple Salmon burgers.
add some homemade potato salad, tomato, lettuce and dill sauce
really hit the spot on a hot day
but then a tiny piece of Elderberry pie for desrt
love elderberry pie
dab of whipped cream and YAHOO!
Suzie took the dogs for a run
then brush some burrs out of Buddies coat
         Busy yes, hot day yes, did we enjoy it yes. Suzie even got her doggie fix too, with three large dogs.
         Thanks for stopping on by and hope you had a great day too.

  1. Sounds like a perfect day and especially when someone else comes along and does the dumping for you.

  2. I need new glasses. That looked just like a deer laying there on the grass til I clicked on the picture and made it bigger. Quite the collection of vehicles.

  5. I agree...way cool to have a porta potty lease! Never heard of that before.

    Yum.....salmon burgers. Sure looked good!

    Hope Suzie's dad feels better soon and her grandma settles into the nursing home ok.

    1. They have the Porta Potty here for the summer to handle the large get togethers they have, so for our use we extended it two more weeks.

  6. For a minute there I wondered about the Porta Potty, but if you're having hoards of visitors, (and you're on a septic system, perhaps) it makes perfect sense.
    I forgot about all the gatherings.
    Plus, it keeps everyone OUTSIDE. Very clever idea. Same as not having to take the coach anywhere to dump the tanks. Can't beat thirty bucks.

    1. Yes they are on a septic system here but have town water. With some of the gatherings of up to 200 people, it really helps to keep people outside.
      The thirty bucks works for us too.

  7. The 30.00 dump fee is way cheaper than that 2 weeks of full hook up fees.

  8. It's still early morning here and I haven't even had breakfast yet, but I can tell already I'm going to have to search for some pie today after seeing your Eldeberry pie pics! Thanks, George!

    1. No problem Rick, it was a small homemade pie from the Mennonite market.
