Busy day for a Sunday but we had fun and got things done too !

Where are we today ?
           Here it is sunday morning, kinda cool and overcast.
interesting sunrise this morning
          So my project first thing, after coffees and computing, was to take our laundry to the New Hamburg Laundromat, figure it would not be too busy. And sure enough not many people do laundry here at 8 am, (nobody actually) on a Sunday morning. Great stuff, got three loads washed and dried in less than an hour. Then stopped by the grocery store and home in good time. Suzie put the laundry away, we had a bite for lunch then off to visit her Gramma in the nursing home in Tavistock. Now Gramma is sure a character, telling us stories and jokes, she sure is pretty spry for a young lady of 98 years young. Like and I quote: " The food its not great, nothing to write home about but will keep me alive, sure do like the butterscotch pudding though".
            From here off to Waterloo, stop at Wally World,  Staples , and Sobeys, just to see if any bargoons. Then a nice visit with my mom, chat, catchup and check her computer, new batteries in her thermostat just to make sure all is working good.
            Back home shorty after 4 o'clock, preheat our Weber Q 100 to roast a chicken (we do love our whole chickens on the Q !). 80 minutes and done to perfection. Roast some taters and steam some broccoli. Whipped up a little Swiss Chalet sauce  just to make it the way we love it.
            The other day I cleaned up the burner on our Weber, just ran a paper clip through the holes as some were almost plugged, BBQ sauce and stuff. Works much better now, lights quicker with the original built in lighter and cooks more evenly again. Doing pretty good considering I use use this Weber Q almost everyday of the year for over 4 years now.
sure hit the spot and lotsa leftovers too,
another meal or two
        Another great day, but fall is sure in the air, we will soon be on the road heading south to a warmer place, not sure where yet and which way we are going but does not really matter to us, everyday is an adventure once we hit the road. And as Suzie's Gramma says  we are "Gypsies"
         Thanks for for stopping on in for a peek, hope ya'll had a wonderful Sunday too, wherever you are.

  1. Never thought about using a paperclip in the little holes. Thanks for the tip.

  2. Hm, maybe I should take a look at the holes on my burner. We've had our big Weber for a number of years now. Maybe that's why it's a bit cantankerous to light sometimes?

    1. That could very well be, the gas flow gets a little restricted, worth a try.

  3. Your Gramma sounds like my Aunt Happy. I called her yesterday and asked her how she was feeling. She turned 100 last month - and she told me that she really didn't like getting older because she was starting to get some wrinkles. Just cracks me up. Hope I have their spirit if I live that long.

    1. I think if you live that long you really need to have a sense of humour and is so nice to see.

  4. Wish I had room for a Webber Grill. I'd welcome a grill that lasted for four years.

    1. This is a very small grill and I expect it to last many years more as well. The Weber Q 100. is no bigger than my other tabletop grills.

  5. You should start a blog just for all your Q grill recipes. I'm sure I would love it and others too.
