Foggy, hot and busy day....

Where are we today ? 
         Wow it was foggy this morning, the pictures below were taken at 7:30 am an hour earlier could barely see 50 feet away.
        But by 9 am the sun burned through the fog and it began to get hot by early afternoon 26c but with the humidity feels like 36c (97F). No just hot but humid.
         Suzie headed into Kitchener for lunch with her gramma, and I hopped on the mower to mow some lawn. But with no breeze at all the faster I drove the mower the hotter it was. Now I love the hot weather but after about 90 minutes the sweat dripping from my sweat band was blurring my glasses, kinda hard to see any more. Time to call it quits, cool down with a dip in the pool and feel brand new. Fuelled the mower and put away in the shed, resume a bit tomorrow.
        Came back from mowing the lawn and there was this real cool Ranger Polaris parked beside our coach. Don't know who it belongs to but must know John and Lea, wish they had left the keys in it, looks like a fun machine.
Suzie home now
         I was given the update of stuff, gramma will be going to a nursing home this week and her father had his hip replacement surgery this morning at 9 am. With just a local anesthetic he was out of recovery and in his room by 2 o'clock all went well.
        At the hardware store this morning I found this real cool table top citronella table top torch on sale half price ($4.99), works awesome when them pesky skeeters come out and are bugging us.

         Suzie and I chatted for a bit then enjoyed our books in the shade under these weeping willow trees, I made up some potato salad. Then soon time to fire up the Weber Q grill a couple bacon burgers to go with the salad.
perfect for a hot summer day
       Suzie got to play with the puppies for a few minutes.
Suzie and Jersey
        Then a quick trip over to Dennis and Sandys, to see how Suzie's mom is doing and see what we can do to help out in the next few days. So those plans are all arranged (written in chalk), guess we just play it by ear.
         So there, another awesome summer day with more very hot weather coming this way for the weekend. 
         Thanks for stopping in and hope you had a great one too! Hop in the pool and cool off, feels great.

  3. It definitely looks like a cool fall day. It's not fall yet but it's certainly coming. You'll probably have more of those foggy days just around the corner.

  5. That torch looks a bit like the toledo pot that we use. These pots were used on the railroad lines. The big difference is mine cost a. Bunch more:((

  6. Hot is one thing, but hot and humid is not a good combination! Glad you stopped the mowing and cooled off.

    Suzie's family is lucky to have you close by!

    1. Not a great day to be working in the sun, but relaxing is a different thing.
      We help out where we can.

  7. I'm still cringing at the thought of a hip-replacement with just a local anesthetic! I think I'd just pass out!

  8. Well it is not really a local anesthetic, it is called a spinal and everything from the waist down is paralysed. Much easier recovery over the usual general anesthetic. I had the latter for my first hip and the spinal 8 weeks ago for the second hip and it is much easier. there will still be pain for him but hopefully he will bounce back faster.
