Almost a heat wave, last day here.

Where are we today ?
     Another great night for sleeping, just above freezing. Bedroom window open a tiny bit, fresh air and our big old heavy quilt on the bed, toasty warm! No furnace needed, just fire up the Mr. Heater first thing. Temps got to just over 11c (52f) today perfect!
     Up early before the sunrise so I can watch it and enjoy a fresh brewed pot of coffee. Bit of computing too.
as the sun begins to rise, love it!
        Then I do the Plattsville trip to see whats new in town, (check lotto tickets too, no luck) and back home by 8 am. Take Suzie to her Mom and Dad's so she can help them purge a bit more. Much easier doing a bit at a time. I ran a few errands then we back home in time for a light lunch.
        Now with another great day here we spent the rest of it outside. Just puttering a round, burn a bit of brush in the firepit, relax in the sunshine (no wind today). And enjoy our books for a while, really loving this spring weather, so far.
        With another great day gotta fire up our Weber Q 100 again and load it up. Had 16 pieces chicken legs and thighs and 5 large baked potatoes. Added some Hickory wood chips, for extra flavor, the foil package at the rear.
        To that we did some steamed broccoli, cauliflower and mini carrots. Sure hit the spot and guess what? Only one potato left over from the 4 of us. Guess it was pretty good. Mind you we all love chicken.
whats better than BBQ'd chicken?
in our opinion not much.
        That pretty well wrapped up our day. 
        Sure was wonderful, lots of fresh air, exercise, good books, great company and wonderful tasty food. 
        Now tomorrow we gonna relocate, not far, but new places and new faces the way we like to live. Never a dull moment in our lives.
