Hot, sunny, and visit with friends for supper in Buckhorn.

Where are we today ?
       A beautiful warm night and an awesome hot day. Temps got into the low 90s f (33c) and sunny with a light breeze. Our kinda weather for hanging out and enjoying our books. Early morning Suzie set up our sun screen on the awning to keep the hot sun off our the patio.
our quick and easy sunscreen
      I ran into Buckhorn to pick up a few things to make my pasta salad to take to our friends for a supper get together this afternoon.

           One of our favourite salads to take to a gathering or enjoy in the summer. You can check out the recipe HERE. On my recipe blog if you like.
very refreshing Pasta (Macaroni salad)
         Got the call from John and Barb in Buckhorn about 3 o'clock that our other friends Rob, Pat and Lady girl were there and to come on over.
love the road into their place
         We were almost there and realized that I had left my camera on the kitchen counter. So took a few shots with Suzie's I phone. Most did not turn out very good. Mind you I am not versed on I phone use. That's her baby.
         The last time the six of us got together was in Yuma Arizona I think in early March.
John is busy building a new deck
onto their house
        We chatted for quite a while, caught up on news and had a very tasty supper, cold roast chicken, veggies, pasta salad, corn on the cob and blueberry pie for desert.
Barb worked all day baking this Blueberry pie.
Kinda hard without a kitchen.

        Did we have fun? Yes we did, so nice to get together again. Then before we know it time to head on back home before it gets dark. Too much wildlife on the roads here after dark, so don't like to drive at night. I have had a few encounters over the years, one with a deer and another with a moose, they both really make a mess out of your vehicles. There is both in this area plus quite a few black bears as well this year.
        This is an almost Canadian long weekend for most people. The official holiday is July 1st (Canada Day) so the campground is filling up.  Some people have Monday off work, some have Tuesday off work some have both off work. Then there is people like us, we have everyday off work. Our favorite job.
         Thanks again for stopping by, hope you are enjoying this amazing weather too.

  4. The nineties are a tad too warm for me but it sure beats cold weather and rain. Enjoy the day and see if you can figure out how to send some of that blueberry pie to me via the internet.
