Happy Labour Day, we busy, and enjoying the almost nice weather

Where are we today ?
         Monday morning and it is a wonderful day. But heard on the news this morning about the St. Jacobs Market, mom and I were just there this past Saturday. I  have been going to this excellent Market since the early 70's when it was first established and it has grown in leaps and bounds. But early this morning it was destroyed by fire. You can read about it in one of the news websites HERE.

The fire was really quick
nothing left
        The cause has not yet been established, but at least we heard nobody was injured (a good thing!)
        For today Suzie headed up to New Hamburg to help many family members remove stuff from her Grammas retirement home and store in her mom and dad's garage for the time being. I took our laundry to the laundrymat in town and got all that done. Back home put some stuff away and did some house cleaning. Then my ma called and came out here for a visit and a coffee, we had a very nice visit.
         After ma left I puttered around some more, had my shower and filled our fresh water tank, then even found a few minutes to read for a while. Got in my mind to bake a few cornmeal muffins for supper, Suzie called on her way home from the Stratford hospital with her mom.

         Suzie on her way home so I fired up our Weber Q 100 to grill a couple Cedar Bay Cedar Plank Salmon for supper. (Sugar and Spice, very tasty). I also whipped up a rice pilaf and tossed salad to round off the meal.
almost done
          We chatted for a bit before supper to catch up with each other's day then settled in to enjoy a very tasty meal.
sure hit the spot tonight
         Now we have had another busy day and will see what tomorrow brings.
         Everybody here is doing about the same (awesome), we are all upright and breathing, what more can we ask for?
          Thanks for stopping by for a visit, we do enjoy your company.

  4. Sorry to hear about the fire. That was huge! I had salmon tonight too ... it was wild king salmon ... awesome! We've used a lot of cedar planks for salmon in the past. Love the taste. Well, I love the taste of salmon period!

  5. Sad to see that beautiful market place burn like that. The muffins you baked sure looked good and the Salmon dinner for sure would be one of my favorites. I have looked and looked for that planked Salmon in Cali with no luck. We passed Pilot Knob of the 8 on Saturday and thought of you guys, 40c as we past by.
